Ms. Giles
  • BtVS watcher since:
    The Pack, S1, got my attention. Watched from then on
  • Hanging out at the ATPoBtVS Posting board since:
    Dec 2002
  • Origin of posting name:
    I hadn't been posting long, when someone quoted at me: Buffy: Speak English, not whatever they speak in, um... Giles: England? I wouldn't mind, but that was on the BBC board..
    I've also had: 'I think I speak for everyone here when I say, 'Huh?''
    I think maybe I have some communications issues. Anyway, I picked up on the Giles connection.
  • Age / species / day-job:
    48 / female / Graphic Designer in a small FE college in the north of England.
  • Most memorable BtVS/AtS quote:
    'Slayer!' 'Slayee!' sticks in my mind. Also 'Whoa! Backing up here!' for some reason
  • Favorite philosopher:
    had to think. Brought up a scientific materialist, so I suppose Descartes? Much taken with the Mahabharata, that's Viyasa, I guess. I liked Rob M Pirsig's Zen and the Art etc, and his stuff on quality and the thinginess of things. Douglas Adams (I don't know if he counts).
  • TTMQ:
    In the sense of continual mental burbling, 10. In the sense of sustained, concentrated thought on a specific issue, leading to better understanding and new insights, 1. Working on a 2.
  • b. Thread that made you first decide to stick around and/or post:
    archives on s6, and essays, especially around Smashed/Wrecked/Gone, which started me off looking for other opinions and reactions in the first place. Rowan's esp. but lots of others
    c. Thread that made you think the most (by yourself or someone else):
    S'kat on Gothic/noir recently
  • Why I love this board more than unlife itself:
    "We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about." Charles Kingsley
