Name: Dana, though I tend to prefer my fandom nickname of Momo.

Gender: Female

Location: Maryland, USA

Marital Status: In a serious relationship and hoping soon to be engaged.

Age: 25

Religion: Agnostic

Pets: None, technically, though I suppose I could say that my boyfriend's pets are mine as well, considering how attached they are to me.

Drink/Smoke: Rarely/Never

Likes: Raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles, warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with strings,

Dislikes: Dog bites, bee stings, feeling sad

(Sorry for the joke, I simply could not resist)

Favorite Anime: Yu Yu Hakusho, Fushigi Yuugi, Sailor Moon, Hetalia, Princess Jellyfish, Ghost in the Shell, pretty much anything by Studio Ghibli or CLAMP, the first Fullmetal Alchemist anime, Rurouni Kenshin... the list goes on, really. It'd probably be easier to just ask if I liked a particular series.

Favorite Manga: See list above, especially on the "it'd be easier to ask about a particular series" part.

Favorite Books: I'm quite fond of the Harry Potter series, and that's really the only thing that's coming to mind right now for favorites, though I read quite a bit.

Favorite Game: Final Fantasy IV, VII, X/X-2, most things Nintendo, puzzle games that have a nice level of challenge to them without making me want to throw things against the wall in frustration, that sort of thing.

Favorite TV shows/Movies: Doctor Who is my current favorite for TV, though I have to admit the season airing right now has yet to really grab my attention outside of the mystery surrounding the new companion. I have too many favorite movies to list (see the note about anime/manga).

Favorite Drink/Non-Alcoholic Drink: Mojito/Sweet tea

Favorite Foods: Fried chicken, oranges, inarizushi, burgers, Oreos

Favorite Music: Honestly I listen to at least a little bit of every genre/style (provided that the style or genre has been brought to my attention), though most of the music in my collection is either pop/rock (from several different nations) or metal (mostly symphonic, though I don't mind a good thrash once in a while).

Job: Currently unemployed, though until recently I was a sales associate at my local FYE store.

Welcome, LadyKuzunoha !

Another Dr Who fan, and Hetalia too. I'm a historian, and that show's treatment of history is a riot.

So, you rarely drink, but you like Mojitos, eh? For me, they're OK, but Mimosa's are a better morning drink (or anytime while in 1st class on the way to Aruba!), while Baileys with coffee is good anytime. Cool

Thank you!

I know, right? Though I appreciate the more serious moments, too, when they're handled right (episode 5 of the new season is a good example).

Yeah, and I'll admit, most of the reason why I don't drink at least slightly more often is my boyfriend. He's allergic to alcohol (to the point where he can't even be around a group drinking socially), so for safety's sake, I try to treat it like a severe peanut allergy and minimize drinking as much as I can. I don't think I've ever had a Mimosa, but I will try one soon.

Hobbies Going to clubs, partying, surfing, shooting, astronomy, wrestling (not the WWE), reading.

Welcome James.

A little TMI there on status, the ladies here will undoubtedly not take a liking to that.

It’s nothing to get upset about. Some people just have different concept about how relationships work, especially when you are separated by a long distance. The American girl has been hanging out with another guy while we are far away from each other and I’m fine with that. I’ve also told the Japanese girl about the situation from the beginning and that it’s fine to find a guy who will be around for the long haul, but so far she’s been content just hanging out with me.

As long as everyone involved knows about and is happy with the situation, I don't see a problem with it. Different strokes for different folks and all that.

Youtube's blocked by the netnanny police here, so I'll have to wait to see that one, egoist.

I guess as long as James's two lady friends are cool with it, more power to him...

Just for the record, there are some very old regular posters in this forum, so don't be afraid if you're one of the older guys. Wink
