So who is Amy Pawloski, anyway?

I am!

smiley - biggrin

But I suppose I should answer that question... When I figure it out, I'll let you know, OK?

Any other questions?

OK, let's leave philosophy out of this... Who is Amy Pawloski?

Oh, alright...

As should be obvious, since I'm using my real name, I'm a woman. I've been Mrs Pawloski since July 12, 1997, and I'm now 40. My husband's name is Tom, and so is his dad's1. Tom has joined h2g2, as Thomas Didymus2, though he's not been online since very shortly after he joined. Oh, and I'm American3.

Anyone that's read my journal4 knows that I'm a mom. PaperKid was born on July 11, 20035, which just happened to be my second H2G2 anniversary! Life hasn't been the same sincesmiley - headhurtssmiley - wowsmiley - love She's been joined by Notepad as of February 16, 2009.

What does 'aka "paper lady"' refer to?

Well, once upon a time, there was a Radish that I really, really wanted to attend, but it was in Leeds, and I'm nowhere near there. (Maybe this would be a better link for info on the Radish...) I whined a bit, and Amy the Ant gave me her email address, so I did a hurried sketch, scanned it and sent it to her, so I could be there in paper, if not in person. Afterwards, I found out that Wumbeevil took the pictures, and I left him a message asking about them that began something like 'Yes, it's me, the paper lady'. We chatted a while, and I mentioned that I actually liked puns. Later, on another thread, I complained about the caption on the picture of 'me' in the men's room, and Wumbeevil responded that he thought that 'a certain paper lady liked puns'. I decided that I liked 'paper lady', but that I wanted to keep my name...

And I've been having fun playing with the concept of being made of paper here on h2g2...

You seem to have been on H2G2 a long time--do you have any badges?

Badges? We don' need no stinkin' badges!

But since when has need meant anything to a packrat? smiley - winkeye

Wow, that's a lot of badges. Any badge-less activities, or have you just been collecting pretty pictures?

No, I'm not just collecting picturessmiley - tongueout Though I will admit I haven't been very active lately in most of these things (nor in the badged things, either, for that matter).

I'm Royal Reminderer in the Court of King 2legs.

I'm Keeper of inside jokes, even after they're not funny to anyone else anymore...6

I'm one of the Amys, a questioner7 (we won the race to 10K8 posts!), and I admit to my addiction...

And I received a wolf cub from Amy† shortly after I joined h2g2. She's an adorable ball of golden fur with mahogony eyes, and I've named her Flamedancer9

I was interviewed for the Post! 29.11.2001...

So, do you know lots of people on H2G2?

I'd say so! I used to list the majority of them, but since the Friends' List was started, I use that when I want to visit people, mostly. That said, a lot of the people I've known aren't on H2G2 anymore, and some of those I don't have any other way to contact themsmiley - sadface

Some of my friends can be found here13.

You can find the location of lots of H2G2ers here, not just people I know.

Have you had any offline contact with any H2G2ers?

Yepsmiley - biggrin I've met some face-to-face, and spoken on the phone with more!

Including those that I've only spoken to for a couple seconds on a call from a meet, as well as those that I've spent hours on the phone with--and speaking with over Skype, as opposed to typing over it, counts as a phone call...

OK, this is the last question, I swear... What on earth is a mufflewhump???

Fair question, as I'm constantly giving them out...

A mufflewhump is whatever you want it to be, but it's always very wonderful. Therefore, mufflewhumps are the best gifts... They stay in their balls-of-unrealized-potential state18 until taken up by (or given to) someone who has a definite want, either conscious or unconscious. Mufflewhumps can become nearly anything19--the only limitations are that they can't become something sentient or something that can be used against the interests of the giver. They're quite handy, as well as being great gifts--I've often picked one up while concentrating and gotten things I need here on h2g2.

1But I can't use senior and junior to differentiate between them, because their middle names are different. Although they both start with 'J'.2Though you'll never see me call him Thomas... If you see me referring to Thomas instead of Tom, I'm talking about Tom's dad3In Crescent City, California, to be a bit more precise...4Or been in a conversation with me for more than a post or twosmiley - winkeye5Though her account's older than that!
