I Am Petra Hear Me Roar

Postby PetraLily » Wed Jan 25, 2012 6:35 am

Hey, first year and such so I am hoping to get an idea of the people I may meet! I won't be coming with anyone but my family (who I love very dearly) so it would be nice to know a few others attending. I'm seventeen, eighteen in October, I love dancing, music, reading, writing, beading, and all that good stuff. Introduce yourself so we can talk and such! Purple is my favourite colour, but I can accept that rainbows are superior to any one colour. I'm from Toronto, and love my city as much as I love travelling. I don't talk a whole lot: my reasoning being that I am always in my mind, thus I get awful bored of what I've got to say. Its not that I don't like you, its that I like you a lot and would rather hear you than me!

Welcome Petra. I'm glad to have you here on eplaya. You people from Canada sure have a funny way of spelling color! Make yourself at home here and be sure to read the first timers guide that is located at the bottom of my post. I hope you have your names in for the tickets.

Yes I've got my tickets, and Canadians spell colour the old fashioned way, even though our computers correct us all the time, same with favourite!

Hi Petra!

. . . I love "colour" and "favourite". They look so much richer. I'd use them if it wouldn't bring mockery upon me. :)

"colour", "favourite" - used by British and by any country that has ever been ruled by British.
Even to this day, I type "colour" and have to go back and fix it for my American friends :)

Itching to wade in and start lecturing about the Queen's English .... but may start something I wish I hadn't. And don't even get me started about the use of the letter "z" instead of "s" ...!!§ :wink:

Be free in your spellings! Freedom of speech extends to freedom of writing, I should hope!
Very clever, Bin Noddin.... very clever.

Hey there, Petra!! Glad to hear someone else who loves Toronto! I am a nonnative, but so many natives of the city grouse about it being dirty, unfriendly, etc. NONE of which it is!! I adore Toronto.

I will be happy to see you on the playa!

Toronto is my home, and home is where the heart is :D anywhere in Toronto is where I belong! So what its a bit dirty, so am I, and out of all the seven countries and countless cities I've been to the nicest people I've found have been my neighbours and strangers I meet on the subway here. You picked a good city!
