Meet the Mods: Waltzdancing
« on: October 11, 2010, 01:41:16 PM »
Continuing with meeting the mods...

Forum Name: waltzdancing
Goes by: Waltz, waltzdancing
Real Name: Adrienne Elliott

General Interests:
I love astronomy and am always outside with my telescopes looking at anything I can find. Anything with Astronomy, Iím always doing it. I enjoy cooking and many recipes I find I modify to fit what I like. Iím a computer geek and last year I rebuilt an old windows ME computer to play old games. I am an outdoor person and if I could choose between, cleaning the house or mowing the lawn, Iíd be mowing the lawn. Iím also an avid movie collector.

Iím a large gamer, hence the rebuilding of an old computer. My first introduction to a computer was sitting for hours watching a screensaver of the crocodile chasing Captain Hook. Soon, my dad brought home Day of the Tentacle and I was hooked for life.  I first played Kings Quest when I was 7 and it was the 7th one. Currently, while working on TSL, my sister and I are playing Lord of the Rings: Return of the King together and losing all the time.

I donít have much time for anything else as I am a full time student at the local university where I live. My major is elementary education with an emphasis on science. I will graduate next year and hope to work in a place where good teacher are needed and hope to inspire students to achieve greatness.  

Kings Quest:
My first encounter with Kings Quest was when I was 7 and my parents played through if first to make sure it was safe for us to play. I later played the 5th one but it wasnít until I was 11 when I finally was able to see the entire story of the beloved royal family. My sister received the entire collection for her birthday including Mask. We devoured them quickly but the 8th one took us YEARS. I finally finished it when I was 16 and was disappointed that it was so different. It never crossed my mind to look of a 9th one until a long time later.

I first found TSL back in 2008 in just a simple Google search. I didnít join the forum until months later but didnít post anything because I was too shy. TSL has really allowed me to open up and be myself around people who are scattered all over the world. It is a really cool feeling to say, ďYeah, I have a friend in such a place.Ē I also co-founded Save TSL along with Oberonqa, Cray, and Atec.

Fun/ Interesting Facts:
I live in the Southwest but donít speak any other languages than English. I still live at home with my parents and have a younger sister and two younger brothers. I donít have many friends, beside those at work and you all here. I have two paying jobs to help with my tuition and then TSL. I have been told many times that I have no life, and I am okay with that.

I am a huge Sci-fi geek and watch a lot of British Television. I love animals, any kind of animal. I have currently two dogs, Annie and Shaggy, and 19 chickens; all with names and are my pets. I am a sports fanatic and played Basketball for three years before becoming too old to play with the other girls. The coach kept me on and helped to motivate them during games. Sunday is usually a dead day for me as I am vegging in front of the television with my dad watching football. He gets to pick the games we watch, he knows the good match ups. Iím a Jetís fan and always have to correct how the announcers say his name, because they do pronounce it incorrectly. I use to watch the Cardinals but since Warner is gone, I have moved on.

I never thought I would be working on Kingís Quest game, and this has been a dream come true and am truly honored to work on such a large project. I have gained so much experience over these past few months and have learned so much about how a game is made. When I sit down at any game now, I have a new appreciation to the work they do. The team has brought a new determination out in me and has encouraged me when I had to do something I never did before. Currently I am doing PR and HR work for TSL as well as beta testing.



Forgot to show you some pictures of me  :P

Thanks for sharing, Adrienne! It's nice to learn more about you. Speaking of Oberonqa, where has he been lately? He seems to have disappeared.

To my knowledge, Oberonqa has left the team. He sent a message to the team members announcing his departure, and I recall him mentioning not to expect seeing him on the forums much. That's about all I know though. He was a good team member and it's a shame he hasn't stuck around on the forums for a while. In any case, it's nice to finally learn more about you, waltzdancing! You and I appear to have a lot in common... But the forum will have to wait for my meet the mods segment to find out in what regards...

Yay!  Someone else from the Southwest who loves stargazing, sci-fi, British TV and animals!  Thanks for letting us know more about you.

I'm tempted to ask to see a picture of your chickens.
I have my cake and eat it too, until it's gone.  Then I can't do either.


Aww!  You have the Sword of Hugging +3!  All of your attacks deal affectionate damage!

It's amusing how this thread has been hijacked into discussion of chickens and snakes. ;D

You can ask anything you want here, but I HATE snakes, ick.

Okay here are their names and some of the pictures I can find off the bat.

2 roosters named Speckles (he is the big brown one) Major Healey (he is the little one and is full grown)

Aurora,Cinderella,Ariel,Giselle,Lina,Molly,Edita,Tamara,Fallon,Lucy,Jeanie,Ethel,and Bandit.

My hen hatched three eggs this summer as well and they were named:
Lucky (who was trapped in the egg and would have died in the shell if I didn't help hatch her)
Lilly
Lisa or Lewis (I think this one might be a boy, still have to wait 2 more months to find out)

*Forgot one* Anya

I'll upload some pictures when I get them off the camera (Need to buy and new transfer cord)

How on earth do you tell all of those chickens apart?
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Wow I'm lucky if I can name both my kids and my dog and keep things straight, that's pretty impressive.  Very very cool!

All the chickens look different and have distinct personalities. I have raised them all since they were little so telling them apart is easy. Once I get the pictures up you will see what I mean.

My next master plan is to get a horse sometime.  ;D . The chickens have those names because my mother can also remember them. I use to have a Maleficent, Belle, Snow White but a stupid Raccoon got them.  :'(. To keep him away from the rest of them I put our marshmallows with Habenero hot sauce in the center. (That is the hottest chile in the southwest. He's never come back.
