Actually 2/4 makes sense when talking about ancestry. 1/2 (one out of two) of my parents are full Italian while 2/4 (two out of four) of my grandparents are full Italian. It just looked funny to me to see it like that.

lol im glad it can make sense in a way then Anime smile although the logic in which you have shared was not my intention Haha.

Have you ever heard of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances at 120 and 118 South Market Street? I'm a just little curious because my mother, who is from Shiremanstown and attended 5th through 12th grade in Mechanicsburg in the way-back-when, is an old friend of the proprietress of the latter and that row of houses is owned by the same family.

I have not heard of the place before but I do know where it is. It is not too far from where I live.

Last edit: 10-07-13 Some spelling and updating.

New introduction as well, since my old one was pretty short. Not that I think a longer one will make it more interesting... but... here goes.

Name: Joyce
Sex: Female
Blood Type: Not the type you can drink.
Location: Netherlands
Marital Status: One of the single ladies
Age: 24 (as of 2013)
Ethnicity: Dutch
Religion: None. I don't have a real opinion whether God exists or not, or whether supernatural things happen.

Pets: Allergic, so none. I like cats Sad. Someday I will buy (gold)fish I think. I'm still lucky though, I can be in the company of a cat in a clean house for a few hours before my eyes, nose and throat start to complain Wink.

Drink/Smoke: I don't drink nor smoke

Likes: Relaxing, having fun with my friends (playing games, shopping, watching movies etc), anime, nice weather, holidays, sleeping, drawing when college gets boring, Nutella, wearing skirts and dresses, roller coasters, taking showers (you know, the simple joys in life Smile)

Dislikes: Frozen feet in the winter, bitter food, wearing ponytails

Favorite anime: Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Natsume Yuujinchou, Cross Game, Toradora!, Nodame Cantabile, Rurouni Kenshin, Attack on Titan, The Devil is a Part-timer, Birdy the Mighty: Decode, Chihayafuru, Spice and Wolf, etcetera

Favorite Manga (Light novels): I usually watch anime

Favorite Books: When nobody recommends or lends me books, I do not read at all

Favorite game: I mostly play games with my friends (board & card games), but in my childhood I loved to play Mario Brothers 3 on the Nintendo! Good times.

Favorite TV shows/Movies: Aside from anime? Disney (Beauty and the Beast, the Lion King etc), the King's speech, the first Pirates of the Caribbean. Pride and prejudice (the series with Colin Firth)

Favorite Drink: The only alcoholic drink I have ever liked was a cocktail with an embarassing name and Baileys in it spoiler[(Screaming Orgasm)]

Non-Alcoholic Drink: Tea with sugar, milk, chocolate milk

Favorite Foods: Nutella, anything that can be put in an oven that isn't fast food (like lasagna, home made pizza, potatoes, fish), pies, desserts

Favorite Sites: Animenewsnetwork, Crunchyroll, Facebook

Favorite Sport (to watch): Ice skating, but I rarely watch it.

Favorite Sport (to play): Swimming, badminton, cycling. I only do swimming for a sport now, because I don't have time for badminton. Also, I'm Dutch, cycling is my main way of transport (common here).

Favorite Music: I must be the only person in the world that sometimes sees the word music and thinks: hey, I have actually not listened to music for quite a while...

Job: Stopped my parttime job because of med school

Study: Med school, now in the clinical training phase, 5th year of 6. Then I'll be what we call a 'Basic doctor', a physician not specialized in any field of medicine. So, I have to apply for a position to do so (that will be about 4 years of more studying, but also working and earning money at the same time).

Hobbies: Having fun with friends, singing, drawing, shopping, anime

Fun facts about A Mystery:
- There have only been a few days in my life (minus when I was too young to eat all solid food) that I haven't put Nutella on my bread. If I don't, I usually opt for chocolate sprinkles...
- Relaxed, optimistic, not always confident, creative, not good at arguments/debating, was secretly lurking around this forum before joining it
- Despite my love for food and gaining some weight before, I actually managed to loose the extra pounds and it's stabilized for more than two years now
- Like many lefties, I use my left hand to write, brush my teeth, eating food, but use my right hand for the pc mouse, scissors, throwing stuff. So if someone wants to teach me how to do something I first have to ask myself which side will work best for learning it...
- Now quite busy with medical school

Favorite Quotes: 'They say the grass isn't greener on the other side, it's greener where you water it. So, water it'.

Good pic, asimpson2006. You look like an easy-going dude, which is what I would expect based on your posting style.

@A Mystery - oooooo, a Dutch cookie, eh? Here's a line I always find that comes in handy when chatting up the Holland ladies: "Wow, those Germans ... whatta bunch of jerks, amirite?" Wink

I used to not be as easy going as I am now. If I posted on here back when I was say 20 I would have been screaming at everyone. I was like a loose cannon then. I've calmed down over the years.

@ asimpson2006 - wow, I have a hard time imaging a raging version of you. What would you say made you switch gears? I really admire people who can keep their cool when posting (of which ANN has many, actually).

If you wish, Blood-chan, I can take you as my apprentice. The Art of Duntgivafuk is a difficult one to learn, but is a true virtue. Of course, you'd have to call me Hart-sensei and bow in my direction ten times a day, but that's a small price to pay, I think.

My Zen path may not be a straight and level one.

I should not say I was raging, just that I yelled at a lot at people over really stupid things. I used to yell at my oldest nephew, I used to yell at aunts, I would yell at people at work, etc.

I would say that just getting older helped me calm down. If I was 16 when I started posting here I would have been banned easily. I would say from my teenage years until I was about 23 that I was not as considerate to others.

If there was no risk for banning or getting yelled at by mods I would probably go off on more on other forum users who do get under my skin. I do get upset at times when people get under my skin or post stuff that I do not like but I would rather not get into personal attacks against other users.

So true. For me, it involved being picked on and bullied often by many of my peers all throughout elementary up through 7th, being a big crybaby (which only gave the kids even more ammunition), and moving several times (which provided me the chance to start over and build a new reputation but also removed me from any friends I made). I think with each move I hardened up more. I rarely ever cry for myself anymore. Oh, you can show me a sad, sympathetic video or story and I'll bawl my eyes out, but when it comes to dealing with my own stress the Art of Duntgivafuk is an oftenly used tool.

ohsnp, did I just serious up a humorous conversation? Carry on, my wayword sons.

Yup, totally Dutch. And how do the Dutch ladies respond to your line Wink? Because in a hungry mood I'll probably think: 'they have Wiener Schnitzel, what's wrong?' instead of thinking about bad times from last century Wink.

Generally, Dutch ladies respond to my line with a polite chuckle and then make a big show of looking at their watches while saying, "Wow, is it that late already?" before leaping on their bicycles and tearing off.

Actually, my line is an homage to an encounter I had with a couple of Dutch girls years ago in Cuba. I guess they lived close to the German border and they drew me a map to show me roughly where their town or whatever was. The only thing is that they drew Holland so that it was about 8 times the size of Germany. That kinda gave me an idea of what your average Dutcher thinks of their Teutonic neighbors. Laughing

@ Blood- : Holland suffers from some sort of tiny-syndrome, pretending we're bigger than we actually are, wanting to stand out and be on the same level with the 'big guys' Wink. And some people just don't have an internal world map. They don't have a clue.
Actually, I believe our relationship with Germany is quite good. It has indeed been far, far worse and our dictionary still has some words specifically used to refer to German people in a bad way. But yeah, there will always be people who won't like them just for being German.

Just wondering (question to US-members in general), isn't it weird to live in such a big country that you cannot visit other countries without traveling for thousands of miles?
