    I am naturally shy, but I'll make an effort to not exclude myself from the groups.

    i'll make sure to say hi ... except for these two situations:

    1. i won't recognize some of you... i know we all have photos, but in reality we all may look different hence the uncertainty. Even so, i might end up saying hi to some total random guy and make a new friend and forget about you :)
    Our common friends might help me out here so ...you 'll see me at some point. And also find out if i made new friends while looking for you....

    2. If you're running around naked screaming how much you loooooove Justin Beiber ... i will most likely pretend i don't know you. However, you can still approach me and ... *cough* introduce yourself. But you won't get a hug.

    Thank you very much survivors! Although I am not that shy it is nice to read that you are always friendly to the newbies. :cheers:
    Otherwise everybody knows that metalheads are always evil. :bmhorns:

    I think it will be very easy to recognize you Kevin. You are the guy with the Morbid Angel Shirt and a tube of vegimite. :mrgreen:

    Although I can't manage to be that often in the forum I am looking forward to meet all of you. It is really a nice community. Of course it is, we are all metalheads. :beerbang:

    By the way my real name is Gerrit.

    See you soon!

    This is precisely why I changed my avatar tonight...must ensure I am recognizable :cheers:


    You know it makes sense. By 'eck I'm starting to get excited :D
    Almost everything is booked (just travel insurance to sort out), my suitcase is slowly being filled and so is my MP3 player.

    I'm a little shy when it comes to talk with big groups of people that know each other, but I think beer would kill that.

    Anyways, if you see a guy wearing this in their clothes, then it's surely me:

    Thursday, January 26 is Australia Day Jaimie.

    I've posted a pic of myself in the Post Your Pic thread so hopefully should be easy enough to recognize.

    We were supposed to meet upstairs, but they had it closed off!

    I thought I recognized a few people in the dining area, but Ron wanted to eat and get going.

    Here is the most recent picture of the two of us right before I won front row tix to Sammy Hagar at the fair a couple months ago! He grew the beard cause he was tired of the Ozzy references.

    I just noticed, it looks like that piranha is gonna bit my bewb!!! LOL

    Hey Jebus - I'm not a shy person, but I think if I was, the cruise would still be great "meeting-people-wise" - everyone is so friendly and on cloud 9 because the atmosphere is so cool. :cheers:

    I am not very shy and will roam around and talk to everyone,
    and if its seems I am ignoring you, I probably am,
    but that's not something a kick in the ass won't fix.

    You saying there are "non-cute" freckles that don't show up in the pic? I don't think so. They are ALL cute freckles.

    Surprised the pic is up this early. But thanks. ;)

    I'm sure many of us will be recognized from our postings, antics, and pictures that have shown up around here! Good thread idea.

    If anyone recognizes me, please come by and say hello. I am friendly, but only so-so with names haha. :cheers:

    Since people are talking about shyness, let me first admit that I am horrible with people's names. Also, please forgive me, while I'm not shy, my "personal space bubble" is a lot larger than most people's. So forgive me if I back away when talking. Also, I can have issues with crowds, so please don't take offense if I suddenly bolt for an area with more space. Might also want to be careful about sudden grabs or movements towards me. ;)

    I don't expect this to actually be an issue, extremely rare, but wanted to give people a heads up. Nothing is intended to be personal. I let people know, in no uncertain terms, if that's the case.

    BTW, Rhia + Conrad + Dan = 1 whole polish person. :lol:

    Do sudden grabs, movements and personal space invasions apply to females too or just the males? :lol:

    We were supposed to meet upstairs, but they had it closed off!

    I thought I recognized a few people in the dining area, but Ron wanted to eat and get going.

    Here is the most recent picture of the two of us right before I won front row tix to Sammy Hagar at the fair a couple months ago! He grew the beard cause he was tired of the Ozzy references.

    I just noticed, it looks like that piranha is gonna bit my bewb!!! LOL

    What a great picture! :cheers: It will be great to see you two again. :D

    I intend to be shy until lunch time the second day. Then I'll say screw it and go talk to people. If anyone recognizes me before that, come say hi! We're really friendly, just too polite to start a conversation. Meekness is our national sport!

    Also: People from western Canada especially, I wanna say hi. More metalhead friends in Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver are good. Considering I don't really know any anymore.

    I'm not posting additional pictures of me because I'm lazy... I may do so later tonight. But just remember, I can be identified as such: Power metal weenie, has a tendency to posture his hair more like a girl's than a real metalhead's, usually travels with the cyborg(1), might say aboot(2).

    (1) - If there happens to be more than one wheelchair lady onbroad, look for the one with an orca tattooed on her back. If there are more than one of them... well shit, I'm screwed too.

    (2) - Needs to be tested. Require's Gnoff's assistance in this highly scientific matter.

    And speaking of Gnoff, you better be wearing the meta-helmet, otherwise I won't know who the hell you are! :lol:
