Welcome, MelodyKate!

There are many people from Australia (aka: I'm aware of only two or three people, but I'm inflating numbers so I can make you feel home)  here in the board.

Tell us a little about you: do you enjoy footy? Any rugby code? Perhaps cricket? Hate sports? When was the first time your heard about AP or listened to her?

Hello Ana! Welcome to the Box!  The second part of your nick has aroused my interest. :) Are you an opera fan?

I wouldn't call myself an opera fan, but I don't dislike opera. In fact, I think the most beautiful vocals I've ever heard were operatic.

It's a internet handle I've used in various form for many years. Originally, I used RusalkaGullveig. Both names came from a list of "faerie names" that I found on a website. They appealed because they sounded mysterious, delicate, and other worldly. The reason Rusalka stuck was because I eventually googled it's actual meaning. They're actually a sort of slavic mermaid. A Rusalka was a woman who had either committed suicide by drowning because of an unhappy/abusive marriage, or women who were forcibly drowned (most especially because of an unwanted pregnancy). It was said that they wondered the rivers, lakes, and waterways luring young men to their deaths in the water as revenge. I couldn't tell you why, but for some reason the sorrow inherent in the creature resonated with me at the time and I kept it.

Edit: I accidentally quoted the wrong post, haha. It's fixed now though.

Thanx for the why!  It is a mysterious handle.

We all make these editing mistakes. 
The last edit after the first wused to be noted with a timestamp.
but the mods just turn off the timestamps one day.
Like many issues here, there was discussion
pro & con.
Then everyone just accepted it. ; - }

It's no problem. Thank you for the interest in the why. :3

A forum I used to frequent did post editing that way. I always thought it felt largely unnecessary, especially in instances where someone had said something and then regretted it. At the same time though, it did provide a good reference just for record of what was and was not original and when it was edited.
