Thread: The EK Fan Club


(Banner made by Aisil)

By Way of Explanation
While perusing LLL earlier today, I came across an interesting thread. It’s inhabited mostly by fans of some guy who, strangely enough, has two names: “Edward” and “Rob.” I was perplexed by this mystery, but the thread became even stranger. In addition to the fans of Edrob, there were also a number of people discussing (of all people) … me!!! I was, needless to say, surprised, especially since many of the posts were from before my glorious return to posting a few months ago.

Nonetheless, I would like to share some choice excerpts, and my thoughts on them:

I agree 100%.

Another fan, and somebody who likes my American accent.

And of course, I would have won!

hehe, yeah, I can be pretty annoying sometimes

What can I say? Nobody plays me like me!

Not any more you don't!

Nice. My mom does that enough already.

Thanks for your offer, but I'm not really appettized by them.

Not at all. *enters suave mode*

What is it with saying I smell? You people don't even know me!

Quote Originally Posted by Arien Silverleaf

GAH!

Quote Originally Posted by Silver Celebrin

You crossed a line. I bite people, right?

Nope, sorry.

Not only do I love Wikipedia, I'm half Italian, and have family there. Are you guys psychic?

I must agree.

Quote Originally Posted by Fanecu Orquicotumo

I'm not nearly as amused by that as you are.

I feel that I owe it to my fans to give them their own place to obsess separate from the Edrob fans. Therefore, proclaim this thread from the mountaintops: come one, come all, and let the swooning begin!

    Huh, so the OP of this thread actually survived the New New (?) Plaza transition more intact than I thought it would. I'm too lazy to replace all the smiley and colors but at least the formatting is correct now.

    Do you know what is really sad? The last time I posted here I was 3 months away from my magnificently terrific North American road trip.

    1. That was 2 and a half years ago.
    2. Its feels like yesterday.
    3. I had all of University ahead of me back then, now I'm practically done.

    On the plus side, I have since:
    1. Learned about, and tried, a s'more.
    2. Discovered the importance of not booking Ryan Air flights through any website (including their own, unless it's really life and death).
    3. Booked a trip to the National Archives.

    So all in all it seems a pretty fair trade of time and experience against my declining time on this planet.

    I remember hearing about the big North American road trip on Facebook both before and during it happening. I was disappointed that we didn't manage a Plaza meet-up, although to be honest that was a pretty bad time in my life for me so I doubt I would have been much fun to hang out with. :P

    A lot has changed for me in the past two years or so since I was really active here. I graduated from Uni this spring! :D A year later than I was "supposed" to, but it's still a nice feeling. And my relationship with both of my parents (especially my formerly estranged father) have improved immensely, which is really nice. So it's been a tough two years in some ways but I do feel that I'm a better person for it.

    NB I got really excited when I saw "National Archives" in your post until I realized you (probably) meant the UK one. Still, if you ever make it back to the DC area drop me a line. ;)

    I still don't really understand how you've managed to somehow over-take me in your education system. I know I took a year out, but I'm beginning to think we're on some weird 18 month per year system or something that our incredibly efficient and very well loved members of parliament forgot to tell us about.

    Glad to hear bridges are being built and stuff with previously estranged parents!

    And finally, I would like to say that I would very much love to visit your National Archives, but as you correctly deduced, I was referring to the much less exciting half hour train journey into London to our ones, rather than a far more exhilarating 8 hour flight to DC.

    I'm going tomorrow and staying with a friend in the heart of the city- planning to spend my days digging for treasures in the initial NHS legislation- all composed my good pal Nye. Got all my hopes of achieving a worthwhile dissertation mark hanging on my productivity in the capital over the next few days. And then on Saturday I'm off on a whirlwind tour of Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Krakow, Budapest, and Venice.

    I skipped a lot of grades when I was younger, which is why I started college early. To be perfectly honest, looking back on the experience, I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone even if they manage to finish high school early. But that's just my take on it and there were certainly other things going on throughout the years I spent at Uni. :P

    Digging through old legislation and papers is fun (I've had some very enjoyable trips to the Library of Congress in DC poking around through old books), but I'm definitely jealous of your upcoming pan-Europe tour. The only time I've been to Europe is Italy when I was five years old, so I barely remember it. I wish I was able to travel as much as you! Although, I did just get back from Florida where we went to Universal Orlando and the Harry Potter theme park, so I can't complain much. :D

    EK, I thought I'd let you know that this place feels like a time capsule for me. I stumble back just now and read my own post - just seven posts up - discussing how time has flown ... and now more than four years have passed again since that post.

    It's definitely a weird feeling going back and re-reading old posts for me too. I was 14 when I really became active here ... the Plaza definitely turned out to be a formative experience for me.

    If we're looking at the May 2005 join date of mine, I will have spent exactly half my life as a member here in about 8 months.

    - - - Updated - - -

    But I was part of a discussion a few weeks ago where someone told me that by the age of 21 you have lived half your life in terms of your perception of time.

    - - - Updated - - -

    How on earth you measure that, I can only begin to imagine. But I do feel like my years 1 - 15 easily lasted about 35 years now I think about it.

    I think they're basing that on the assumption that your perception of time is dependent on the proportion of your life so far that each passing moment represents, like when you're a kid ages 5-10 represents half your life which is a long ass time but you go from 45-50 it's only 10% which is pretty meh as far as percents go. Whole thing seems like a bit of stretch though since the percents all change depending on whether you're talking in years or hours or seconds and although I haven't run the numbers on this I think the inescapable mathematical conclusion to this line of reasoning is that when you're just being born every millisecond feels like several billion years

    sure thing narv and thanks for the support

    also added rivvy elf to the op since i didn't do that previously

    i initially had something written here about how re-reading my posts on the first page of this thread is kinda cringey but it got all messy and emotional which is probably partially because it's after 4am my time but also just where things are for me right now but anyway yeah

    it's good to have you guys here though seriously

    I think it's important for everyone to get messy and emotional on the plaza at least annually, if only so they can look back on it the next year and feel much more mature and emotionally stable than their previous self, until the self-reflection leads to nostalgia and ennui and right back to messy emotionality, thus perpetuating the vital cycle. I'm glad to still have you all too ������ wait does this thing do iPhone emojis now that's crazy

    I guess it's good none of us remember it. Not sure I'd have coped with the passing of every millisecond feeling like an eternity in those early moments.

    sorry to break it to you, and it's probably me not you, but all I'm seeing is questions marks...

    okay that's fine then, we've got that all sorted and agreed.

    I was thinking the same thing. But updates add a whole new facet.

    There you go.

    p.s. it's good to be here and I concur with the mushy stuff briefly discussed above.

    - - - Updated - - -

    EK, what is the meaning of the addition sign after your name in the active members list on the main forum page?

    - - - Updated - - -

    it's quite exciting knowing all 3 of the current members online.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I include myself in that number, but I have no intention of entering into the mires of whether or not I can know myself.

    I have definitely asked you that before haven't I? I'm too scared to say anything else on the matter now in case I've already said it as a response to your answer to that same question, and then you'll discover that I am in fact a person of such banality that I always react in exactly the same way to information, which I then promptly forget, only to repeat the cycle a few months/ years later.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I really hope last time I asked I didn't say anything quite like that. Otherwise I've really lost it.

    Pretty good, thanks! I survived my first semester of grad school, did really well except in the class I dropped (but that won't affect my grade point average), and have so far avoided a post-semester crash largely because I've done more creative writing for fun in the past two weeks than I had in the previous four and a half years. So all in all I am feeling way better than I almost ever do at this time of December, even though Christmas is almost here. I feel kinda ridiculous being so relieved/pleased by it, but oh well.

    Great! I'm so pleased to hear that - I hope everything you have said still holds true despite the nine day lag in my response, and I hope everything continues as well into your second semester next year (but if not, I always find this is a nice place to vent and I would be happy to provide a long-distance, virtual ear - albeit one which may take a week or two to react...).

    It's going pretty well for now, at least, thanks. It's definitely nice to get to check back in here periodically. I hope you've been well and that the new year is a good one for you!

    I went skiing on new year's day which was a real buzz, so if that's anything to go by, 2018 is going to be pretty good. I like checking in here too. I wish I could understand the pattern of my periodically dropping by though. Take now for instance: I log onto the internet in order to order my sister a belated birthday present, but before I get on to that endeavour, I end up deciding to come here first. It's quite exhilarating really.

    Glad your 2018 is off to a good start, Nia! I'm not very good at skiing but it's fun, though my dad and I aren't making our usual trip to upstate New York for it this year.

    I glance at the Plaza most days but don't always feel like posting. Can't always say why either. It's definitely nice to still have a measure of continuity in my online experience going back so many years, and to see familiar faces here!
