...but please keep the pitch correct!

Hello, nice to meet all of you. I'm Earoon, 46 years of age, quite recently migrated from Germany to Edinburgh.

QI was one of the first things I fell in love with here in the UK, and it's also what I would miss most, TV like, if I had to leave again.

My main interest besides knitting is the interpretation of myths, especially the work of Joseph Campbell. I loved the Iliad right from the beginning and have "specialised", so to speak, on the character of the Locrian Ajax, yes, him of the bad reputation and the pet snake.

But you will also see me wide eyed at astronomical or geological events, and yes, I was one of those who celebrated and cried at Cassini's last moments.

I like to joke around, and hope to spend much fun time with all of you, learning, laughing, sharing virtual cookies.
This IS about the cookies, isn't it?

Hi Earron! I actually used Campbell's "Hero With a Thousand Faces" as the jumping off point for my Literature thesis for my B.A. I was trying to establish a connection between the characters of John Rambo and Griffin, The Invisible Man. I wrote to David Morrell (the Rambo author) and he very kindly wrote back suggesting I looked at Campbell's work, as he had written the whole story with the theory in mind. Thanks to his advice, I got an Upper Second honours degree, so there must have been something good in it somewhere!

Welcome, Earron! Feel free to bring your own box with homebake.
Plenty of proper butter, please. All this health nonsense....

Rather a lot of spelling confusion here! "Earron" seems to be a typo.

Is it "Earonn" (as in your username) or "Earoon" (as in your post)?

Welcome Earonn :-)

You are in fact our second German expat poster - if you come across Almond Facial Bar, she is a German expat who lives near Dublin.
