GF Newbies/Vets Refresher Thread 2011


4 legs good 2 legs bad
We had one of these threads a few years back (here), and the tradition was actually started at an old forum where DaStevez and I came from, and I think they're a great way to new and old members alike to get to know each other better.

These are just some basic questions, some of them borrowed from the old thread. Feel free to add anything else that you want to share about yourself.

What brought you here: Me and Pretz were cruising the internet, hoping to pick up some hot megahots, when all of a sudden, after labouriously typing out 'General Forums' into the google search engine, we stumbled upon this place. It looked to be very active and so we registered up and created some welcome threads and here I am now.
Explain your username: My last name is Melnyk. In school, one of the other student's favourite things to do was call me 'Smell'nick instead because of the fact that my family was poor and so somehow they figured that because we were poor, that meant we didn't shower. Stupid kids haha. So I eventually just accepted the nickname, and made it my own. And so that's what I use on the internet now. Smelnick

Hobbies: Carpentry, Guitaring and Singing, writing lyrics, reading, video games, the internet

Goals in life: get back to having no debt. maybe go back to school eventually. I definitely want to be married and have at least 1 kid before I'm 30.

The rant about yourself section: I'm not sure what goes here. Do I talk about myself here?

Random fact about yourself: I can raise one eyebrow without the other, but I can't raise the other without the one.
