The television set, tinfoiled rabbit ears perfectly calibrated, was displaying Dr. Strangelove, a favorite. For some reason that evening I decided to sign up.

Yes, alcohol was involved.

Sparky the Fire Dog: Concern appreciated. I'm fairly new though - that's really the reason I don't have a dress uniform yet. I'll get one next time they have a few people to order for. They really do treat me about like they would a smallish guy - like giving me the heaviest thing they can find to carry (testing my strength) - but other than that I'm the same as anyone.

I'm working on becoming an EMT too! Should be certified in March.


In that case congrats, and good luck with the EMT tests. (They were easier than I expected, but that was a while ago in NY.)

If fundraising is an issue, consider that (1) this is fark (2) you're female (3) you're a firefighter, which is quite badass, and (4) the FarkUs tab seems like a good spot to try to ask for help with fundraising, especially if 1 and 2 apply.

divaa31: 13 years ago - that's half my life, oh god - I signed up for Fark around the same time I started my first email account, sneaking around behind my mom's back. My username is the creation of a nervous, sad 12 year old girl who really wanted to be COOL. It's by complete chance that I logged on here tonight. I am shocked that my password still works. Apparently Flux is still around? Totally had a secret tween internet crush on that guy.

Well, I don't think fundraising is the issue with dress uniforms (more about having enough to be worth putting an order in, and making sure all the people involved have been around long enough to know they're in for the long haul). I'll keep that in mind though if anything else in particular comes up! Thanks!

Old BBS handle.

M.I.R.V. (multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicle) + 888 The opposite number to 666 according to my freshman algebra teacher (a Xavierian Brother). I'm not religious. I just found that amusing.

John Cipollina from Quicksilver Messenger Service is my favorite guitarist. He might not be the fastest, knowledgeable or the most technical guitarist but he was the most creative. His sound is so unique, he was a real life Erich Zann and no one else really compares. It's not for everyone but I enjoy it.

My FARK user name ultimately traces to a certain service dog by both name and character. The spelling was chosen for ease of input in text messages, and is maintained because there are very few false positives when CTRL+F searching a page for instances of "izgu".
