one thousand, how did that happen?

Post by Liesbeth »

You know what, it's pretty darn hard to think of something appropriate to post on your 1000th message. Unless you really don't care about that sort of thing, but I suppose I post enough on this board to care. Yep.

So after careful deliberation, weighing it off, I think it might be time after nearly two years of secrecy to show you all what I am like. This is not a decision made lightly, so I hope some of you will appreciate it.

Some of you may find this image of me surprising, maybe...
The picture was taken in the summer of 2004, which was before a certain topic that I started.

I'm stalling.
Here goes:

Indeed, Liesbeth... where did the posts go? When I think of all the board members that we haven't seen in a while (wherefore art thou Meg? AK?) it brings a tear to my eye.

So I'll match your brave revealing, Liesbeth, and post a pic. Nothing so incriminating though:

I've already posted my picture a handful of times.

And I'm still less than 1/5th of the way to 1,000

sweet pic, ms. Felon
somehow I always get distracted by little things, like the toilet rolls in the background, and what's in the tumbler (wine, brandy, cold tea?)
I need some sleep, maybe

Jebus, I'm next on the list to get 1000 posts, and I'm over 100 posts away. I suppose when I do I'll post a picture of myself as well, I don't think I've posted one in a little while. And Liesbeth, gongrats on posting your picture for the first time!

Now really, there is a picture of me on my website, always has been!
I admit it is a bit hidden, but if you'd really want to know more about me, you will find it.

I have met every one of you at one point or another, but in this thread in particular I'm seeing a lot of new faces...

-scratches head- I can't tell if that's really deep, or really confused.

I'll say, it's been a while since John's been on tour, but surely he remembers what Betty and I look like?

Don't laugh...that table's paid for.

Side note: it's been about three days since I saw John, and I already feel like he's forgotten me.

I think this is the only picture of any part of me currently on the computer...(I was playing with the new digital camera to see how well the digital macro worked :)

It just occurred to me that I've met and talked with John three times, and I've seen the Long Winters four times. Wow. That's not bad.

Wonder if he really remembers me, thought?

wow, that eye is kinda unsettling, being so big.
it would have fitted nicely in the eye-colour thread (stop me now, before I start to reminisce)

and sour, in my experience, John seems to remember faces pretty well.
I think he was maybe trying to say something here.

I smell a tradition unraveling. Oh, the observations I make!

It's fun to compare the real images to the ones I've built up in my head of you folks I haven't met. They are pretty much way different.

Betty, you look nothing like your old avatar!
