Hi to everyone on ATS, it is so lovely to meet you.

I have been a long time lurker on these boards, for years. However, I have finally decided to join and maybe even contribute a bit to some threads. I have alot of thoughts about this and that, and I often get labelled ' nuts' or ';bonkers' or my personal favourite 'eccentric', if I dare to express my views in public. I have learnt to keep my own counsel, over the years. So you guys on ATS have kept me sane over the years, knowing there are other people who can see through the mass delusions, illusions and madness that is so rampant in the world today, probably always has been.

I am in my 40s, female and I am English. I hope to talk to some of you soon.

Helen xx

Hello Helen welcome to ats I'm sure you'll fit right in we're all a little bonkers, damn I love when the brits say bonkers. I watch so many British shows and sitcoms and say things like wanker and brilliant all the time and people where I live think i'm weird.

Thank you OMC, I appreciate the welcome. Also thanks RN311, I so love loonies too - as long as they are of the kind, non violent variety. Preston Space thanks for saying 'hi', I think 'bonkers' is a good word too, it sort of adds a certain depth and roundness to the description of someone who is a bit left of centre.. in a nice way. I try not to use the 'W' word, but sometimes it slips out in a hushed whisper, under my breath, in stressful situations, such as getting a parking ticket etc.

Hope to see you all around. H

Nice to meet you Helen!
Welcome to ATS, I've been labeled what you have. But I'd just call us, unique.
Hope you enjoy. Glad you joined

If you work hard at the nuts and bonkers thing, one day you can do it professionally... just like I do.

Welcome to ATS!

Run......Run quickly while you still have time!
As a lurker you are free to shake your head or laugh but as a member, no such luxuries!

When you get to 20 posts you get the "real" info which means you have to mop the floor, clean your room and dust those old plates aunt Agnes gave your mother that you just cant seem to get rid of!

Being a Lurker is far easier and you don't have chores!

You have been warned!!!

....and welcomed!
