Who's Marius?

Salvete, amici Romani!

Re-intros, hm? --Bene, I'll bite. May I take the liberty of copying this over from the last time I was coherent on the subject...? <g>

I am Marius; Marius the Wanderer. I am notoriously difficult to sum up; my last attempt may be seen in my Board profile. Hmm, let me think...

*sound of gears grinding*

-- I'm a Desert Storm veteran, Unc'a Sam's Air Force
-- I'm from Texas; the family's from southern Spain
-- I used to be in a certain Roman Internet Micronation
-- I've been here a long time
-- I'm the Webmaster
-- I'll be here a long time <g>
-- I'm the resident madman, the local Werewolf, and a Pelagian Christian (heretical sect with strong Celtic leanings--I talk to Pagans a lot, and Evangelicals just long enough to scare them)
-- I'm a Faire Nerd, a Computer Tech, and a Roman Army Geek (amongst other things)
-- I like roleplaying games, Roman names, daily life, Latin inscriptions, and anything to do with the Legions, including shrugging into my lorica on the weekends and Livin' some History
-- I'm a Bard-Storyteller; I get that from my Celtiberian side
-- I am widely reckoned the "community memory" hereabouts
-- I have the best little dog in the whole wide world, besides yours ]{;o)
-- I have a complete set of Asterix
-- I am not dangerous...just very playful!
-- ...Oh, and I get confuzzled easily...
-- Every once in a while I go head-to-head with one of the other Curatores about some organizational something-or-other. They still let me have admin privileges, for which I am profoundly grateful. >({|:-)

...and that was a Roman Smilie. He's registered and everything!

So: Welcome to the Societas Via Romana! Hope you like it as much as I have.

In amicitia et fide,

Salve Mari

You have a complete set of Asterix? Green with envy! Latin or English?
I can't claim to be a collector (one does not a collection make) but I yearn for a Latin set (or at least a couple more).

Salve, Helena!

Complete English set, thanks to a dear friend who was stationed at RAF Mildenhall. Four Latin ones (the "Roman Empire Edition", it says inside). And I'm still looking for the three Spanish issues that jump-started my Asterixian addiction waayyy back in high school!
