I'd just like to apologise to the newbies that are a bit ascairt. Yeah, we are a tough board. We are protective of our space & our own. But making the cut isn't that hard & you'll likely earn friends for life if you stick around. Also it's just good manners to introduce yourself (Even if it is the intarwebs!) & most Busties will advise you of this politely.

The SERIOUS trolling? Is almost nil. The ModSquad has largely gotten rid of the more egregious culprits. Now we just get the odd corporate shill, escort, perv, & woefully misguided man. And even then, a lot of us give folks a chance until they do something lame. We are frequently disappointed (I'm lookin' at you, Geoff.), but we try to give them a chance.

So stay, please. We welcome you. We are passing around drinks & snacks, join the fun!

Because of all the trolling and since I don't post very often but do read I feel like I should say a hello here.
Hi I'm Angie, or Ruby (my alias/fave nickname) I'm 20 and born in San Diego but residing in Santa Cruz, CA for school and loving it so far.
So for me, school accounts to posting and reading less often and when it comes to Summer and Winter I have more free time/insomniac time to read and post I don't normally post and join message boards and that is probably why I wasn't formal about introducing myself but I love the bust community here. Keep postin' and chatn'; I love the Lounge, the perfect name, and I guess you may be hearing from me little more these Summer days happy.gif

Ah, so I read that we are firmly encouraged to post here first of anywhere so as to avoid being seen as a troll. Wow--hardcore forum. wink.gif Okay, so here I am. I'll go by scherzino here and will post an avatar soon. I promise I am not a troll. I've been way involved in other forums and enjoy the interaction and culture. I've read Bust on and off over the years and love it. I'd been looking for a new forum, one that is pretty open and fairly non-censored as far as the sex talk and all goes. This one should be fun. smile.gif Thanks for the welcome!

Hi everyone, I'm new, and have never been on a forum before so I hope I'm doing this right!

I'm 18 and hopefully off to uni in September, looking forward to moving out! I'm from England, and I love reading, sewing, art, music and films.

unsure.gif Don't know what else to put so...yeah that's it!

Hello, I've been a loyal reader of Bust for about 7 years or so. 3-4 years ago I used to read some of the pregnancy posts (back when I was still dreaming about starting a family). Now we're trying, so I feel like I finally have something to add. I'm 30, married and have a dog and a cat. I like to read, eat ice cream and garden (vegetables and flowers). I'm not a member of any other online forums.

I'm a newbie. I saw these forums while searching up a rough oral sex question, so that's how I found it. Definitely not a longtime lurker. Looking forward to getting some great advice and learning new stuff in here smile.gif

Aw, thank you! And I actually found it this morning, when I realized you can change the settings on how far back in the threads to go. I'm a genius!

Hm, and I hope this is the right thread to ask this...but when I was lurking [that's the word?] a few weeks back, I swore there was a thread for Busties who had recently lost a family member...I can't seem to locate it now, however. Could it have closed by chance? I'm not really sure how that works exactly. Perhaps it was somewhere outside of the Friends and Family threads? If anyone could direct me in the, errr, well, right direction, it would be much appreciated!

So...newbie, but not a newbie...I'm a re-bie, I guess biggrin.gif

Used to be on here as icicle or icicle1 or something. I forget...it's been YEARS...like 9 or so.

I am:

29.

Living in Nebraska.

I've loved Bust since I was about 15 I think [ever since the first Bjork cover, which I stumbled across on a trip to Chicago with my dad...I got hooked].

I have a cat, work as a typesetter and drink a lot of Welch's grape soda.

Howdy. I used to write on here a lot a decade or so ago as "Dykelove". Just wanted to say "hey". I've missed the Busties and my connection to this place, my fabulous palace of online girlieness. About me: By day, I'm a mild mannered marketing director; by night, queer burlesque producer extraordinaire. This here is my stage name.

Question for the board ops: How do I upload a photo? Mine didn't work a buncha times and I think I have the specs right...

Cheerio,

Hi guys....I'm a newbie, just joined up, my names Siobhan I'm 22 from the UK...enjoying the messageboard so far, it looks really cool. I'm bad at introducing myself but....I enjoy songwriting, music, dancing fashion and the sun.
I hate arrogance, ambivalence,and slugs. My favorite meal is spagetti bolognase.
That'll do. How boring. Thanks for having me. smile.gif

Hello Busties! It's been so long...I used to spend alot of time here like a decade ago or more, under the screen name Vera. I even wrote an article or two on craftiness for the magazine. I recall how much support and connection I got throughout the end of my crumbling 1st marriage, dragging myself through college for like ten years part time, etc etc. Life is so good now. I'm married to my lovely wife here in San Diego (one of the 18,000 couples that made it through the Prop 8 loop hole), writing about gluten-free living and occasionally singing. Lovely to see that things in the Lounge are still humming along. I've always has a soft spot for Bust and it makes me happy to see how it's flourished here and in print.

So I've been on here a while and have only realized I've never introduced myself, and I promise I'm not a troll or whatever, just a woman who doesn't always know what the heck is going on... And is a bit paranoid about things.
So here it is,
I'm Sageykins, 32, from the Northeast (Originally NY and now PA). I work in healthcare, I'm in a relationship with my best friend, I've got a lot of issues of relaxing and letting go. So I'll probably spend most of my time in the relationship threads. But I've also got a super cute puppy, great friends, and love to be outside.
I'm grateful for the help I've gotten so far, thanks Busties!

Hey!
Im a newbie in the Bust lounge so thought Id let you all know who I am! Im 18 and from Scotland and somewhere between Bi and straight...not 100% sure yet.Im going off to uni after the summer to study law, which is exciting cause ill finally get to be living away from home! Im a big fan of baking and making chocolates, kniting, trying to unicycle and am a major blog reader. Got introduced to Bust by a friend a while back, its really great to have everyone talking so frankly about issues that just dont get brought up around here! Im away all summer so bear with me whilst i get my technology-confused brain into getting a picture and all that jazz sorted!

Hi there. I am not new at all (I've been a lounge lurker for at least 5 years), but I've never really felt compelled to post much until now, so I figure I ought to introduce myself. I will be 26 in about a week, live in AZ but make frequent trips to Hollywood, and *finally* got my degree this year in ceramics with a minor in french. Now I am just working a boring job to help pay for student loans and wishing that I was still in school learning new things.

I love to make things (sculptures, paintings, jewelry, stuffed animals, pinatas, etc) and have a growing obsession with horticulture esp. topiary and terrariums although I am notoriously bad with plants.



Terrariums? Oh I'm intrigued! I tried to make a few but eventually they died out (they were open air) but I have a few that are more like potted plants now instead of a self sustaining little landscape. Do you have any pics of yours?
