Hello, fellow Nanvaent players.
I'm Mannawyddan. (Please note that this is the name of a Celtic Sea-God. I do research on such things.)
Although, I must add, I'm not really Mannawyddan. I'm actually
a person called Thomas "Konnrad" Taylor.
No! Don't let this surprise you... I'm a real person. Although in my spare time I appear to be a half-goat bard, I'm actually a spotty, oikish teenage layabout. Gnuk, eh? (see "Manna speak" below).
If you wish to initiate conversation with me (a risky move, compadre) you'd be well advised to keep a sense of wit, irony, and sarcasm about you! Not that I have any of those, but it'll all be useful to confuse little ol' me with.
And I'm a very honest, open person. I can tell you anything
about me, and I can talk about any subject. For my personal likes
and dislikes... CLICK HERE!!!
Well, that's enough about me.
Here's a small picture. Of me. Making
the last sentence entirely redundant!!!
Me on holiday in Wales, when I was about 5 (in 1987).
I enjoyed the ice-cream, the banal pursuits, the rain, and the
smiting of unbelievers
most of all.
A QUICK GUIDE TO "MANNA" SPEAK.
Natch - naturally. (Natch).
Obv - obviously. (Obv).
Oh, shut up - Exactly what is says on the tin, natch.
Maybe I should be revising - Oh Arse, I'll never get enough grades to start the journalism course... ARSE!
Gnuk - Just asserts my individuality.
(*something*) eh? - eh? is sort of a questioning statement, used ironically. Hurrah, eh?
Hurrah! - Well... it's obvious. Hurrah!
Latin - I may spout it if I bother to remember any - ***CLICK HERE!!!***
INEFFABLE!!! - Truly unbelievably great, like Nan. (Mayhaps I jest, it IS only a MUD.)
Bugger - I don't know how to explain this... bugger. (See? And that was irony in action AGAIN!)
This isn't at all funny, Tom - Bugger, eh?
So, there you are. Gnuk, eh? Actually, maybe I should be revising...
And a small

THE OBLIGATORY MANNA'S FINAL THOUGHT...
What quotes could I share with you?
"I never was a cornflake girl, thought it was a big solution."
"Remember yourself, always and everywhere." (P. D. Ouspensky)
"No, in the end I shall say nothing. Silence is my answer, becuase it precedes and defeats everything ever said." - a quote of me (I think. It's too easy to pick up famous quotes, and then think you made 'em up.).
Mannawyddan - remember me when you forget everything else that you ever need to know.
