"Society still deems me acceptably sane, but I'm working on it."

Hello. My name is Alex Trenchard. I'm currently being Picocon Sofa, which is odd, because I distinctly remember having promised myself that that was one position I would never take.

The madness all started very soon after I learnt to read. Suddenly I realised that imaginary worlds were rather more fun than the one I actually live in, and unlike Lot or Orpheus (those fools) I have yet to look back.

My escapist tendancies have gotten progressively worse as my life has done sillier and sillier things to me. My parents decided we'd move to Hong Kong for two and half years; I spent almost all of the first year reading and learning to play Magic. Later, my parents decided that boarding school would be a really good place for me. I've come out a changed man, but on the upside have learned to fence, shoot, fly - anything anyone would teach me - and I've read still more and got into roleplaying. Oh, there were A-levels too.

I am, for the time being, a third year on the Aeronautical Engineering course, although only just, having scraped through SQTs on the first year, and just barely passed one or two subjects in my second. Aero is famously the course of much pain, so obviously the sensible thing to do is to keep standing for ICSF committee positions.

On the offchance that anyone wants to talk to me, I'm pretty much always in the library over lunchtime; I'm also at Wargames on Wednesdays. I don't know which games I'm going to be playing in yet, but I'm going to try to keep it to two this year... (cue much laughter from stage left)

read biography for - Sulkyblue

 Sulkyblue (4th Nov 2003, 13:52)

Also features people such as Jessica Steen (of Earth2 and soon to be a regular in Stargate SG1), Tim Dunnigan (the original Face in the A Team pilot).
Largely though - the answer is "'cos it was on special offer" and is *so* bad it's funny.
