I'm candleshoe.

I'm "brand new"   :)

Fresh starts can be good things!

For instance I got a new job.  It starts April 28.  Of course one of the things I did was pre-ask off for TAM  ;)

Airfare purchased, the rest will be purchased by end of month.

whoops.. and the rest for those who haven't met me (and since I was never very prolific at posting).
I'm Sherry, married to Jeff.  Fans of the show. From the Austin area of Texas.  We are both programmers.
Yes! We hung out at TAM! At the bacon and donut party. You guys are attending again?

Yes!  That was my 50th Birthday! 

Yes, airfare is purchased.  Trying to get a room booked and then after the next paycheck will get our passes.

Will you be there? We need a TAM thread, cause I'm already very excited.

Nah not this year. It's been a bizarre year for sure and not really in the budget this time around. I hope you guys have fun though!

I think Cognoscento said he was going this year, and he's a doll baby (did you meet him when he came by for drinks last year?); and if mindme shows up with his girlfriend, he's rather a sweetheart as well.

Not me, sorry, hon.  Expensive health problems for both members of my household, etc., and I haven't won the Powerball yet.  :-\

I can't this year, I've got colleges to harass and friends to apply to.

Wait.

Maybe I should write a little hello (again) too: Hello!

I'm a chronic lurker, slightly afraid of posting but an interested reader. I'll probably continue to hang out mostly in the shadows.

Anyway, I'm finishing my degree at the moment (ehm, well... trying to), applying for jobs and enjoying my last months of being a student before life kicks in (or whatever happens once you leave the protected world that's university). 

Thanks for such a great forum! It has given me many good perspectives and insights. :)

Welcome back and don't be afraid to throw in your 2¢ or your currency of choice.  ;D

Heyyo!

I'm new to the skeptics forum.  I'm a casual, infrequent listener to the show.

I decided to come here after getting tired of Facebook conversations constructed almost entirely of logical fallacies.

So hey all!  Looking forward to being proven wrong, the right way!  ;)

ETA: welcome, and well-put.

Should be ok as long as the two of them don't meet.  ;)
