Fixed.
While we're on the subject, can we change the subject now?

What a nice friendly welcome :D

I am Belgian and female. Something tells me that's a good thing. :lol:

I'm not sure what else I should tell about myself. I'm somewhat of an insomniac lately (some of you seem to be too), I like coffee far too much (one might have something to do with the other), I've been listening nearly obsessively to some new band called Frightened Rabbits all day and I tend to ask too many question so I try not to.

You can ask me anything you want and I will answer everything truthfully (unless it's none of your business :P ).

:o HURRAH! Someone else who likes the extrasupervery wabbit! *dances the twist*

Ah you'll fit right in here, especially with your insomnia. My insomnia doesn't do me much good as there's a time lag; my 2am is everyone else's 7am... and nobody's on the board yet. :(

So have you seen the Bellies live yet?

Bienvenue Sleepyhead! you have all the qualities to be around here: talkative, funny, coffee and music fan and open-minded (arrived here with a first contact with rocky and you sticked around... says it all! :wink: ). Plus, very important, you have access to delicious belgium chocolate for which the mods will love you... (we did have a contact but she has just moved to Dublin for an access to madness.)

I make a fantastic first impression I'll have you know. First question of course sleepyhead is we need to have an idea of your age. Are you part of the dirty thirtys club? Or are you one of the rest of us? :D

It was mostly the pretty sign up here that drew me in.

Also: I am not Irish. I had no idea who Phil Lynott until I googled him. Turns out he even has a statue in Dublin. Nice.

Hmmm buns, thanks Belle! And everybody else as well, for the kind welcome :)

And, yes, I've seen the boys live, once, a year-and-a-half ago now. It was mostly by accident, but what a nice accident. It was in some small club-like venue, here in Antwerp, and I was there to see The Frames, who had just released The Cost. Bellx1 were the opening band and I only knew them from my 'to urgently-check-out-list and from their history with Damien Rice, but they completely blew me away.

I'm still waiting for them to do a real bellies gig here, but alas, no luck so far...

Merci beaucoup, Nathalie :) Indeed, the chocolate, the chocolate... I am quite the chocolate fiend, the really dark kind mostly, although in times of need all colours and fillings will do. What kind do you like?

Rocky, are you looking for a lover, une amante, a sweet-heart perhaps? You seem to enjoy quite a reputation here.
I am not yet in my thirties, since you ask, but coming to grips with the approach of the ever-disturbing age of twenty-five. So I guess I'm just like the rest of you, although I do see that your profile says you're still only nineteen, mister!
And if anything, you certainly made a memorable impression :wink:
