Hello everyone,

Thank you for letting me introduce myself. My answers to the five questions are below. A little more about myself: I love to cook, especially for large numbers of people if its BBQ. I've cooked for two weddings and 2 engagement dinners for free for friends as well as our last two 4th of July parties. I also really love to make cookies and make hot sauces and BBQ Sauces. I'm on my first reread of the Wheel of Time, which I started after JordanCon '22 and am glad I did, because you forget or miss so much as you get through them and its fun to have those "AHA" moments.

1. My favorite character in the books is probably a tie between Thom and Perrin, but I'd lean more toward Perrin because I identify with being slow and thoughtful and not really wanting to hurt anyone because of my size.
2. I heard about the website at my first JordanCon in 2022, I've been waffling about joining since
3. I work for the Kroger Company, yes the grocery stores, as an IT project manager
4. I live in St. Louis, am from Kansas City. I only speak English, but have been trying to learn Spanish. I don't keep up with it well unfortunately.
5. Top 5 Book Series that aren't Wheel of Time:
1. Percy Jackson (I include all 15 books in this and am excited for the 3 book series that will be released along with the new tv series they are releasing)
2. The Jack Reacher books (the movies were stupid, the show was awesome)
3. Harry Potter (the original books, the author is stupid apparently, the cursed child is dumb)
4. The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobbs (I haven't finished the second or third book because I was hooked on a Wheel reread after JordanCon)
5. The Chronicles of Narnia

I'm on Knife of Dreams. I don't mind the show, mainly because of the panels at JordanCon where they discussed some of the reasons they had to take certain liberties with some Character arcs, but its not my favorite adaptation. The shorts that were put out with it are awesome

Hey! I know you! You don't suck. Congrats. Tell Alan to turn around....

(Magnus is my RL spouse, everyone! Ask him about the KC Chiefs, BBQ, WoT, DnD, and board games. @Kenith Sna'aps : he has arrived.)
