My Welsh / Gaelic are both non existant for someone living in Scotland!

Wow, I'm like three-fourths Irish ancestry and had not idea the Irish said 'Hola.'

Welcome, newbie. I'm Praetor, an embarrassment to my heritage.

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

You know what, I have been posting here all week and I don't even think I introduced myself just yet. oops.

Hi! you may call me Xip!
In daily life I'm a student getting a bachelor degree in policy, management and technology and to pay for all that I work at a grocery store in the fresh baked goods department. My hobbies include writing (fanfiction!), cooking, science in general, horses and going on long walks.

I got into Star Trek somewhere in my early teens, when my dad bought me a couple of Voyager episodes on tape. Later on I got into the Original Series and I've been hooked ever since. I particularly like TOS, VOY and ENT, but that's mainly because I haven't gotten around next gen or DS9 just yet. I love the JJverse and am really looking forward to the next movie.

So hi! Nice to meet you all!

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

goedenavond Do you happen to post on startrek.nl as well? I lurk there most of the time - I understand Dutch well but still write it very badly.
You'll find quite a few of your countrymen here. And a few fanfic writers, too.

I'm so old that I saw the first run of TOS (yep, I'm ancient ) but am rather a TNG snd DS9 fan. Cooking is a cool hobby - but bad for the waistline... *sigh*

Thanks kirsten and Rhubarbodendron! ^^

I don't post at startrek.nl actually, not sure why I didn't get into that. It's cool you can read and understand Dutch, I've been told it's a difficult language to learn for non native speakers. Any particular reason why you went through the trouble of learning it?

haha, having cooking as a hobby isn't necessarily bad for the waistline. I like to challenge myself to cook healthy meals.

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

Healthy meals can be pretty high calory, too I eat very healthy and am still 10 kg overweight.

I have friends in Overijssel and in Leeuwarden It's a very nice language and I wanted to at least to know the basics like "please, thanks, happy birthday" etc. in my friends' native tongue.
It's not that hard for me because Dutch is rather similar to some Northern German dialects I am familiar with (admittedly also a bit exotic for a native Bavarian ). The grammar is rather a challenge, though, and the pronounciation of the Dutch L still gives me trouble.

Btw, feel free to call me rhubarb - Rhubarbodendron is quite long and complicated. It was coined in chat when I remarked that the rhododendrons were still in full bloom while there was already fresh rhubarb in the market. RJDiogenes tried to type that 3 times without typo and the result was a Rhubarbodenodrodon which had to be shortened a little to fit here as my username

Just the L? Because most non native speakers have trouble pronouncing the G or CH sound. As a matter of fact, I think the Dutch resistance used the word 'Scheveningen' as a way to identify undercover germans during WW2, but I'm not entirely sure about that.
Funny though, I thought the L in Dutch and English was fairly similar.

That's a fun way to get a forum name!
