Get to know the team: Alundra
« on: May 28, 2008, 11:24:32 AM »


Name: Jade "Alundra" Elizabeth.
Age: 19.
Location: Aussie in the USA.
Favourite Quote: Reading and comprehension may be tested together-but they are two different things! <me to my English teacher ;).
Position: Documentation Writer, Documentation Help Squad Head :D.

1) Do you have pets?
Yes! I have a cat called Vegemite (I call him savage), a cat called Demi, a gerbil called Gerry (he died), and a dog (he's back in Australia) called Nudge (I call him Baby).
Photo of Nudge (before haircut).
Nudge again (after haircut).
Gerry.

2) What is your favourite colour?
Blue...But I'm going through a green phase at the moment (Keep leaning towards green colours instead of blues).

3) What kind of music do you like?
I tend to not be fussed, I don't like screamo, but I like metal. I like older music, I'm not sure why. I like trance, rock, R&B, pops etc..

4) What do you do on your free time besides spending time on SMF?
I write poetry, and work on my website :). I love to code, and I love to write. I'm not too bad at coding (basics), but I'm a good writer. Here's one of my poems that people seem to like:

Ballad of the Duck

“There’s no one out there for me,” the duck said to the goose
“Not even the farmers there for me, this morning he turned me loose”
The goose put his wings around and said with cheery aloof
“I can show you there is you see, if you want the proof”

The duck felt apprehensive, and worried on his luck
“Come on,” called the goose, “let’s find you another duck!”
The duck refused to move, to take off from the ground
That was until he heard a very fatal sound

They flew towards the mountains, each at the others side
On and on until they found its cavernous divide
They landed on the rocks and the goose cried out with glee
“I know there's someone here for you, ‘cause there's someone here for ME!”

The duck listened carefully as “me” was shouted back
The duck was kind of startled and let out a mighty “Quack!”
But silence filled the cavern as the duck waddled all around
And no matter what he called there was no duck-like sound

“I’m sorry,” said the goose at last, “Now I see it’s clear”
“There really is no one for you, no one to hold you dear”
With that he bid the duck farewell, and left him there to cry
Oh the poor forlorn duck how he did wish to die.

Karma found the goose you see the hunter shot him dead
The duck found some water and to more he was lead
Now he lives in a lake and has himself some friends
Though our duck does live on, here his Ballad ends.


Written Dec 6th, 2007. It was inspired by this brilliant poet.

5) What are your goals/dreams in life?
I want to be a writer. That's all I want to do. Write.

6) What got you involved in SMF?
Well...my old forum was hacked on August 31st -- September 1st 2007, and I tried to stop the hacker (for 30 hours), but failed. After this I got involved in a hackers society because my ex was in one. They all told me to go SMF because it was the safest forum software out there, so on September 4th I set up a new forum, FULLY intending to delete it and go back to the old software....Then I saw how fast and easy it was, and how powerful, and I couldnt turn back...I emailed all the old members, and shut the old forum down. I got into SMF, the team was always helpful, and it was SO easy to customise. I fell in love with it so fast, and today I STILL loves it :D.

7) Who do you admire? Why?
Too many people. The SMF team, my own team, my parental units, my friends...

8) Are you into sports?  If so which ones?
Eww...
Okay, I like volleyball, soccer, La crosse (sp?), netball, and swimming...

9) What is your dream job?
Actually, I wouldnt mind being paid to run my own forum, do editing jobs (for documentation/stories/etc), and writing novels.

10) What was your first screenname?
Yuk75....Because Neopets had no usernames free and I hit the keyboard and "Yuk" came up, said that was taken, but Yuk75 wasnt :D.

11) Do you have any piercings?
Yeah, my ears :D.

12) Are you a lefty/righty or ambidextrous?
I'm right handed :).

13) Do you have any tattoo's?  If not do you wish/plan to get one?
No....I'm scared of pain and needles, so I doubt I'll get any...as cool as they are and all.

14) Do you have any siblings?  If so, how many of each?
One biological brother, one step brother, one step sister, one half brother, and one half sister.

I live with the half brother and sister, my mum, and stepdad :D.

15) What is your favourite website?
Seriously...I regard this as the "stupid question" of these tests.....If I didnt own one, I wouldnt have one  ::). My own website is my fav :P.

16) Do you play computer games?  If so, which ones?
I love The Sims, and The Movies. I used to make custom content for The Sims, some of it is on The Sims Resource, but a lot of it was never submitted. I cannot recall if I submitted my designer walls series or not.

17) Do you play video game consoles?  Which ones?
Yeah, I have a Nintendo64 here that wont plugin to American sockets without force ;). I used to play playstation a lot, but I don't have one here :).

18) Are you married or planing to get married?
No, I'm not married yet :D.

19) How many languages do you speak?  If so which ones?
English, and a little bit of Indonesian, German, and French :D.

20) Do you drink?
No, my friends banned me after my first standard alcoholic drink.....I went dead serious and started lecturing them about their smoking, drinking, etc habits...apparently I'm more fun sober (it's true, I've never been so serious in my life) :P.

21) Do you smoke?
Nope. Well, passively because every one of my parental units do.

22) Did you play hookey from class?
Play what?

23) Do you have a license?
Nope....Can't get one.

24) Do you own a car?
Nope, but I can drive people up walls ;D.

25) Have you ever been stopped for speeding?
No lol.

26) Do you obtain a good amount of sleep daily?
Depends....is it a Friday night or a holiday?

27) How do you sleep?
I close my eyes and.....lol on my stomach :P

28) Have you ever been on an airplane?
One thousand times: from Aus to the USA, From Aus to Germany, From Germany to the USA, From the USA to England, From England to Germany.....not counting stopovers in China, and Singapore (they don't speak Indonesian it turns out.....the looked at me so weird  :-[)

29) Have you ever broken a bone?
Not one of my own  :P. Lol kidding, never broken a bone :D.

30) Do you wear jewelry?  If so what jewelry do you wear?
Yes, Earrings and my necklace that will never leave my neck.

Quote
Rhianna and I are sitting at the bus stop down Palmerston on the back of the bus stop bench, its like 9pm ish. And I said bored, in a dull deadpan but loud voice “I AM WAITING FOR A BUS!” and then Rhianna replied with the same tones “YES A BUS!” and I said back “A BUS!” and the drunk old guy said loud enough for me to hear from across the street, “Hope it hits you” and that set me off with my most hysterical laugh (now THAT was LOUD!!), which echoed and could have been heard from China I reckon, and the old guy said something else and I wouldn’t stop laughing, and I said in between maniacal laughter “I…Think….EVERYONE….should ….know me….by now!” and Rhianna nodded laughing.

35) Do you live alone?
Nope :P.

36) How many hours a day do you spend in the computer?

I love Nudge, he's the best dog I've ever had. I used to pull him through my window at night before I got my 400 gallon tank (that blocked the way) and 7 fish. They're still in Aus too :).

My dog would never leave my window, he was very protective of me, as I was of him :).

I guess now I know everything I need to know about Alundra! :P

I sort of wish I had a dog, but there's really no room for one here.. though our house *is* fenced in. Samoa makes things a little different when it comes to pets. :p

Also:

36) How many hours a day do you spend in the computer?
None, I cant fit IN the computer. USING it is a different story...

Haha.. :p

Unfortunately, we have stray/wild dog issues here.. pretty bad. :p This topic isn't about me so I won't detail the problems too much.. but I wish I could. I'd rather I had a bigger house/yard for any dog (of any size), it's unfair to them to be couped up like that!

Cats on the other hand are easier to maintain.

I dunno the name of the episode, but my fav is the one where Homer is swimming around as a shark, and he stands up and laughs "heh heh heh" Then Bart comes up next to him and does the same and he screams "AHH! Shark boy!" and runs. Makes me laugh just thinking about it.

Another question: What's your favorite flavor of chocolate?

Milk. I like white too... Dark is my least favourite :D.
If it's nutty, I prefer almonds ;).
Don't mind caramel in it either :D.
