::humblebrag::


I may not be able to understand all of the nuances or words, per se, but trust me the general ideas are fully absorbed. My name is Damo (not my real name) and I love you all already (mostly some of you). You are all brilliant indigo children, and I am humbled by your ability to look beyond these few insignificant words. Your laser beam intellects slice through my meager vocabulary like frozen dollar store margarine. I ,like so many of you before me, are here mainly to get so much free stuffs. Free Books, Free Boots, Free Booze, Free Boos.. I'm 1000% game.

This community might be my best internet discovery since Dumbo octopi. Please send me a million books so I can ravenously devour them, and I will forever regurgitate my emotions here for all the world to see.

Good day/afternoon/evening sweet kings, queens, gentle sirs, maidens, and any trans-people/animals that I may have missed..

Adieu,


Damo :tiphat:

:o I'm happy for you. Hi! I just registered today, and it's been quite a while since I last joined a forum like this. Incidentally, I joined by accident: I was searching something related to Scrabble and got redirected here. Hoping this forum and the members would be helpful in widening my reading and love for books.

OMG DATo, Steven Wright and Woody Allen are my heroes too!

I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she left me before we met. :|
