Haha, that's as good a reason as any, I guess.

What's wrong with Sundays?

It's a Doctor Who reference.

Sundays are boring. I never land on Sundays. Etc.,

One of my more vague references, I admit.

Ah. Not being interested in Dr. Who, I wouldn't have had a hope in hell of guessing it anyway.

I'm gonna do a newbie post just because I've been away from the forum for over a year, and I hadn't posted on the new forums all that much anyhow. I'm 31, just accepting that I'm bi, chronically single, and prone to anxiety and mild depression.

I have a tendency to engage with a group, whether online or in meatspace, become known, make friends and then get hit with a massive sense of "what's the point" combined with lethargy and just drop out of sight, so be warned.

It's a term I've adopted of late, I talk in depth about why in this comment on Pharyngula http://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/2013/07/31/the-great-troll-war-of-2013/comment-page-1/#comment-658459

TL:DR version, using "online" and "in real life" is a part of the culture that sees certain  threats, harassment and even sexual violence as "only" online. I think it was Ben Goldacre I first saw using meatspace to distinguish face-to-face from online without that problem, I like its implied comparison with cyber-space.

Makes sense. Is that you in your profile pic?

Yep, during one of my attempts to be clean shaven, they last about a week then the razor burn gets too much and I go back to the beard.

Your glasses are about twice the size of mine. Not saying much since mine are too small for my face.

You kinda look like Cole Sprouse... *squints*
