Default Getting To Know Eachother

I know we can just look at each other's profiles but I thought this would be a nice way to find out about the people on this forum.

Full name: Caitlin Maria Gibson
Location: Liverpool, England
Job: I'm still in school.
Gender: Female
How I came across this site: Google
How I came acroos QL: My mum
Favourite music: How long have you got? I like Meatloaf, Alice Cooper, Def Leppard, The Rasmus, Tracy Chapman, DragonForce, Nightwish, Within Temptation, Iron Maiden and loads more. Hard to choose a favourite
Favourite films: I like anything The Green Mile, The Crow, Interview With The Vampire, The Birds, The Gift and more...
Favourite books: I like anything by Anne Rice, Stephen King, James Hervert and Dean Koontz. Oh, and To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a classic.
Interests: I like to draw, read a lot, write a lot, I love listening to music and I play drums. I also like computers, filming and photography.
Other: I plan on teaching when I'm older, preferabley in a high school or college. I'm torn between English literature and IT.
I find it incredibley difficult to choose my favourite subjects in school. I can choose my worst subject; PE. I'm not like most kids in my school. I like to learn things.
I know a bit of Dutch, Spanish (not by choice), Arabic (not by choice) and Scandinavian languages.

You get the idea.

Okay, I'll post one for me.

Full name: Isabel, that's all I'm gonna say.
Location: Devon, England.
Job: Still at school, doing my GCSEs (just going into Yr 11).
Gender: Female.
How I came across this site: Looking for QL fanart.
How I came across QL: My parents, aided by the QL Day on ITV 3 that time. ^^
Favourite music: Weird Al, Voltaire, My Chemical Romance, Crush 40... Mostly rock music, but Weird Al is actually my hero, he's a damn genius.
Favourite films: Evolution, O Brother Where Art Thou? and Shaun of the Dead.
Favourite books: Ooh, that's a hard one... I'd say my favourite series of books is Xanth by Piers Anthony, and I like The Book Thief too.
Interests: I love drawing, but I'm only really good at cartoons. I also love writing. I wanna be a photographer and writer when I'm older. I like singing, reading, and getting a lot of my friends together and mooching about. XD
Other: I'm a very hyper person. I used to be very quiet, but I heard people thought I was shy, so I tried to change, and now I'm often very loud without meaning to be. XD I write down a lot of the funny things my friends, famiyl and I say in my notebook, so I've got a long list of funny quotes ready to repeat at any moment. A lot of people view me as completely psycho, and maybe I am...

@Sam's Crow: You like To Kill a Mockingbird? We've gotta read that over the summer for English.

Oh crap! I haven't started it yet! Must dash!

How I came across this site: Through friends at the old sci fi forum
How I came across QL: My hubby was recommended it by a colleague, so we started recording it, but hes never watched it and never will!
Favourite music: How long have you got? I have eclectic tastes and prefer to judge each piece on its own merits rather than go with genres. Mostly hate Jazz and Opera, though I like some tunes in both. Mostly love Country, Gospel, Soundtracks and Classical, but there are some in each I hate. You get the idea

Favourite films: I am easy to entertain but hard to impress...
A Matter of Life and Death, Dangerous Beauty, The Slipper and the Rose, Pleasantville, Meet Joe Black, Phone Booth and hundreds more. Tend to like rom coms and chick flicks and things that make you think. Hate horror but have seen most of them with hubby.
Favourite books: Dont read as much as Id like. Enjoying Bill Bryson at the moment. Lord of the Rings, David Eddings, lots of science fantasy stuff. Deborah Pratt of course.
Interests: I like to write especially fanfiction QL mostly of course! Chatting on IM, watching dvds.
Other:
Im very rusty but speak a little French
I have two wonderful children, full grown but still living at home. No hurry to throw them out.
My pen-name is Madders Ahatter because I am totally crazy with a wicked sense of humour.
My readers have dubbed me The Queen of Cruel because I love Sam whumping in my stories.

Sams Crow I love Green Mile too!
No reason you cant train to teach English and IT unusual but not impossible combination. Good luck with that.
I hated PE and was a swot at school, but that was a long time ago.
Fascinating range of languages!

Ziggy love your first two films, hated the third. One of the very few Ive ever walked out of, I was bored out of my mind.
As for being psycho Lifes too short to be sane!

Full name: Melissa (and that's as far as I'll go)

Location: Birmingham metro area of Alabama, USA (I have activities in four counties locally, so that's why I leave it at
Birmingham metro area of Alabama.)

Job: 9-1-1 operator

Gender: Female

How I came across this site: My friend who goes by Al the Observer, who I met at a police conference, told me about the upcoming convention and gave me the URL.

How I came across QL: It followed MacGyver on the USA Network after school. It piqued my interest, so I stayed inside and watched an episode. That was all it took.

Favourite music: I don't have enough space to list every band on my MP3 player, but I'll just say I have hours of both Rock and New Age on it (odd combination, I know).

Favourite films:
The Hunt for Red October, Air Force One, Pierce Brosnan's four Bond films, Dante's Peak, The Thomas Crown Affair (Pierce Brosnan version), After the Sunset... (see a pattern developing?), maybe some others that I can't think of right away

Favourite books: I'll second the vote for To Kill a Mockingbird (had to read it for 10th grade, and was the only one in class who actually enjoyed doing so), most (if not all) of the Quantum Leap books; I don't read nearly as much as I used to.

Interests: I have A.D.D., so I'm interested in just about anything that comes my way, at least for a short time, anyway... Oh look, a squirrel!

Other: According to this quiz, and this quiz, I do not have a Southern Accent. In fact, I have no accent, apparently. The first quiz says I have a "Neutral" accent. The second quiz says I have a "Midland" accent. In other languages, I speak enough Spanish to get me into trouble, but not enough to keep me out of it. I need to work on that. I love to eat - I eat like a bird. Spicy food rules. I enjoy riding my bicycle, but I haven't done that in two years - too busy. I collect T-shirts. I haven't done a count lately, but I'm pretty sure I can wear a different shirt each day and not have to do laundry for at least a year. I can't think of anything else right now. Actually, I can think of lots of things, but they leave my mind before I start typing, only to be replaced by something else. And I've been editing this post for an hour now, so I'll stop.

Full Name: Anthony (Sorry, but that's all)

Location: Northern California, United States

Job: Currently in college (collage?) No, the first spelling's right.

Gender: Male (the only one so far)

How I Came Across this Site: Believe it or not, this was on the Quantum Leap page of Wikipedia. I checked out Al's Place, because I really liked Quantum Leap, at which time I was half-way done with the second season.

How I Came Across Quantum Leap: The show was advertised on ION, a television station that I had watched long before QL came on the air. I thought that the show was interesting enough to give it "a try", which led me to watch it every night, since it was so good the first night.

Favourite Music: Most music that I like is actually without words. I would prefer to listen to the music without the singing. However, if I would have to pick, I would have to say that I will listen to anything that is not contemporary, and most certainly not rap music!!!

Favourite Films: Hmm... I really can't cite a favorite movie off the top of my head. How about a genre? Comedy and Adventure are among my favorites.

Favourite Books: Now that, I can answer. The DaVinci Code, The Monk Series (Based off of television series), The Lukien Trilogy (unoffical name for three books by John Marco), among many others.

Interests: I like to read, play video games, write, and this may sound nerdy, so I'm glad that Sam's Crow said this first, but I also enjoy learning new things. Want proof? This next semester, I signed up for "German I" as a "fun class". Five units, (which means 5 hours a week, plus work and tests), and just because I thought that it would be interesting and I always wanted to learn a new language.

You collect T-shirts, Chicken Boo? I love ties. I don't know why, but I enjoy searching for ties. Neckties, I mean. I am the only one I know who will gladly accept a necktie as a holiday gift. My hope is that I have one for each day of the year.

Other: I really have nothing else to say, really. My favorite subject has to be history. Oh, and Sam's Crow, I know how you feel about P.E. I'm a firm believer that they should abolish students picking teams.



I'm afraid to ask how I'm already being analyzed by this...

Ohboy, have you seen the film, The Davinci Code? How do you think it compares to the book? I always like the books far more than I like the films. I quite liked the film as well, but it was a little cheesey for my liking (if that makes sense).

I share your sentiment about the books are better than movies ideas. Personally, I thought the movie was okay, to put it generously, but I didn't think that it really honored the movie a whole lot. Of course, I tried to show it to someone who has never read the book before, and good lord! he couldn't understand any of it. I wouldn't have either, if I never read the book.

I love animals and hope one day to have a pet dog.

I'm a rather shy person though once I get to know someone I open up quite a bit and can turn into quite a goof ball.

You are not alone, friend, you are not alone. Don't like Dungeons and Dragons, but I've spent more time on Video Games than I would care to admit.

Sweety I think we have discussed our passion for Jane Austen before, but here is a link to some poetry I wrote for my beloved Jane and her characters

http://allpoetry.com/poem/4212101

http://allpoetry.com/poem/4212285

I am currently in the process of paraphrasing Pride & Prejudice into modern english for the benefit of today's 'thick as a plank' teenagers and my niece (who of course is NOT as thick as a plank'..... maybe)

When I was in England I bought a book called 'In the steps of Jane Austen' and spent a happy few days in Bath wandering through it investigating all of Jane's favourite haunts. A slice of heaven!

Its is a truth universally acknowledged that a man in possesion of a good fortune must be in want of a wife..................

Ah, I never could get into sports game. I have no problem with them personally, as they can be quite fun, but I've never been good at sports in real life, so...

I've played a lot of fantasy games myself.

I never could get much into the sports ones. I was never interested in sports anyway.
