    Although my online gaming experience is very limited (A little WoW or Rift here and there, and Neverwinter the most), I just thought I'd share and say how incredibly impressed I am with Tenacious, and everyone in it. In Neverwinter, I was a member of a guild for a long time, and never came close to feeling this welcome. That guild had a few "main" people that stuck together and kind of ignored everyone else... Unless they wanted help, and then expected you to be there. But when you needed it, no one was available suddenly. It was very discouraging.

    I've only been in Tenacious for a couple of weeks, and have not had a chance to play a whole lot with everyone yet... But I have been listening and talking on Mumble. All the time. Just creeping there. ;)

    I absolutely love how much everyone works together to help one another. That's how a guild should be... Helpful, and supportive... And a little crazy now and then. :p

    I just want to thank everyone for being so kind, to me and all other newcomers, and I look forward to open beta and launch to have more of a chance to work with many of you!

    Oh, and I don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon. :p (And at some point, when we can get AA to play on his crappy laptop, my boyfriend will be joining us as well... Many times when I'm muted in Mumble, it's because I leave it on speaker so he can hear everyone as well.)

    @AmazonCheesecake Uh, this wouldn't be that "invisible" boyfriend you tried to convince all about the other night, right?

    I know where you are coming from @AmazonCheesecake

    It took me a long time to find a new home and it was only thanks to @Eldelari who was researching guilds and finally convinced me that i needed to join and play TERA with this group of crazy people that seem to lurk on these here forums.

    And as much as i hate the IP, books and movies...

    Damn you MadSci, you beat me to it.

    Remember, invisible boyfriend does not come with Cheesecake in the draft!

    Lol! He's only invisible until we either get AA working on his laptop, or he gets a new one. :p

    And no, he's not made of plastic, rubber, or glass.

    I wasn't on the draft! I think somebody may have been slightly intoxicated toward the end of it, and forgot to put me down on the list, along with my asset. :p

    You were definitely picked, but I can't remember who by. Someone who wanted cupcakes?
    I'm guessing the drunking genesis leader of ours must have neglected to put your name on the lists ;-)

    I'm still trying to figure out where the cupcake thing was started. Although I can make them, I definitely didn't mention them. And I do much better at other desserts... Cheesecake, Dutch Apple Pie, Blackberry Crisp, etc... :p

    Thx Amazon, a great post! are family first gamers second.

    Sounds like yummy cupcakes to me. Is that a weimarauner(sp) on your avatar? We to have one. She was great with the kids, very protective of then well.

    I think the cupcakes (food) comes from Choiye (forgive me cuz I know I can't spell her name right now) but she made some awesome cupcakes of which she posted pics.
    Now if you say "great job cupcake" that's from wild star -know you knew that one.

    That's my black lab, Morgan. :) The photo just looks funny because I took it in front of my door on a sunny day, and it made it really contrasty.

    And if you want cupcakes, I've got a friend who posts pics of her creations on FB all the time. She needs to open a shop! (I've actually made cupcakes probably twice in my life. Lol)

    Thanks! She does have pretty eyes.. She just turned 6 in August. And she's one of the best dogs I've ever had.

    I also have 4 cats that she keeps in line. :)

    @Yugota Wow, I was not aware that Golden Retriever's could be white. I have had 2. Beau and Riley. Riley lived to be 13 1/2. They are one of my favorite dogs. Such a great temperament. Riley would somehow know when a family member would be coming to the house before they got to within like a 1/4 mile. He was not a barker, which was good, but he would go to the front door and sit and wait and a couple min later you'd see whoever it was pull into the driveway.

    Great dogs. I have a mix breed now, best dog we've ever had. Super smart. Usually only have to tell her once or show her once and she gets it.
    I think she's a mix of boxer, Boston terrier and black lab. I'll see if I can get a decent pic of her. Any time I'd try she'd just show up a black blob.
    She's older now and has a gray beard/mustache.

    and here's our adult cat in her favorite spot, next to my computer lol

    Lol. I don't mind hijacking. I'm a Veterinary Technician, so I see see dogs, cats, etc. every day at work, and home, and never get sick of seeing them. :p

    @Vanye Goldens come in quite a variety of colors, from a dark red to basically white. We even have a breeder that comes to my clinic that sells "English Creams" that are all that light (and for a pretty penny, too).

    Here are my kitties. The 3 sleeping together are siblings we raised from 10 days old (from my parent's farm). Their mom stopped feeding them, so we took them home. The two black boys are Mikey and Riddick, and the gray girl is Piper. The brown striped tabby we found running around as a small kitten at the vet I previously worked for. Her name is Cybil.. Plan was to raise these guys until we could find homes for them.. They never left. :p

    My turn! Kitties!!!!!11eleven11!!

    First my oldest girl Minuit (french for Midnight) she usually goes crazy around midnight hence her name. She is very vocal and loving but doesn't really like the other cats. She is my climber and ninja, a real pro at stealth and sneaking. She sleeps with me at night.
    [​IMG]

    The middle-child...er tomcat, Kimou with his spotted tabby belly. He is fat, he -defines- fat and lazy and loves to sleep with his head on a pillow. Yes I tried to put him on a diet, use feeding balls, never worked :( He doesn't even eat a lot. He adores my son and sleep with him every night.
    [​IMG]

    Last one is the baby, Cendrine (french name from Cendre meaning ash). She is a little rascal, very playful and we nicknamed her the pirahna. She knows two modes only: cuddly and play fight. She bites, she fights but she will follow me all around my place, can't suffer not being in the same room as me. She is also adorable and very social. She needs an hourly dose of petting and kisses and insists lol. She also sleeps with me either on me or next to my pillow. Very light framed but trying to alpha boss the two others! Look at her plan more mischiefs!

    I love your pussies!

    ....

    Damn, that sounds weird.

    I'm more a dog person than a cat person tho. We had another golden retriever for the last 14 years. Died last summer unfortunately, was also a "white" golden retriever.

    Sorry for ruining your thread, Amazon :(

    No problem. As I said, I love seeing other people's pets. It's part of my job. ;) And I'm surprised you don't already have a pet sharing thread somewhere...

    I have no idea what you all are talking about. Amazon Cheesecake is clearly in group 5 on the mock draft list.

    @Katmondi I see you have the cat hair on your CPU case mod :p excellent performance enhancer !

    Fish are cool too. I used to raise African Cichlids, but have no space for my tank at the moment.

    They know how to get food, swimming frantically into the corner of the tank closest to the kitchen when they see us moving around.

    yeah, can't believe how far saltwater has come, had one when I was a kid, with a magnum canister filter and that was considered "High Tech" Had an octopus, was awesome!!!

    @Katmondi I haven't checked into all the tank gear since I had mine set up, but even then there was some pretty awesome equipment. I had found a hang on back filter that had the heater in it, instead of separate. I loved it. Less clutter in the tank.

    I still have my 46 gallon bowfront, which I love, but I want a 90 gallon bowfront some day too.

    yeah they are ridiculously hard to keep in the tank, wouldn't recomend getting one, but today's reef setup is incredible, someday when the kids are grown i'll have one again. they are also a huge money sink :)

    My 55 gallon had a sump setup, the heater was put down in tehre, the top was completely clear of junk besides the overflow and the fill line. I made the hood with lights, saved money but was a pain.

    Nice! For my African cichlid tank I had found black sand that really made their colors stand out.

    If I'm able to set them up again, I'd love another cichlid tank, and a reef tank, with a sump and all my junk below.

    @Peppermint - The Piranha is the best nickname in the world. I think I would get along with your cat =P

    Also, I have a Noah's Ark at home. 2 bunnies, 2 cats, and 2 dogs. I will post them later as I am at work at the moment, although it is almost time to go home!

    My most crazy Noah's Ark was at same time:
    - 5 female rats (Elbereth the mommy was already pregnant when I got her, gave away the males)
    - 3 male mice
    - 1 ferret
    - 1 dove
    - huge fish tank with Oscar, trouts and angels fishies
    - 1 cockatiel (rescued)
    - 1 black cat (Ténèbres means Darkness in french)
    - 1 anolis lizard with a couple hermit crabs

    That's it.

    I grew up on a farm, so we had cows, horses, chickens, rabbits, cats, dogs, pigs, etc that myself and my siblings would tame and claim as pets... lol

    I've had couple ferrets in the past, also a green cheeked conure, cockatiel, quaker parrot, and even had a dwarf lionhead bunny I rescued..

    Currently my dog and 4 cats are all we can handle until we get a bigger house. :)
