Well it`s a cold and grey Monday, and lack of coin prevents me from writing a far more interesting review. Having too much time on my hands (slow day at work), thought I would kick out this thread that has been rolling around in my head.
I was first introduced to merb by Miss Tyler, I had been in contact with her via email setting up an appointment. I ask her about some of the terminology on her web site (, daty msog, dfk). Just to show you how clueless I was at the beginning, I had know idea what those terms where about. The only one I had inkling about was ````, I knew what the bj was but could not figure what the fisrt two b`s stood for. I was coming up with ideas like ``big bad bj...maybe...I guess not``...LOL, and what the hell was daty and msog ``isn`t that simular to what you would find at a Chinese buffet...LOL. Miss tyler suggested I go to a web site called merb and she provided me with a link. Since then there have been very few days that I have not popped in to see what`s been going on.
In the beginning I was one of the many lurkers amazed at this wealth of information (also a little pissed I had not found merb before this), and the reading was great. I will not lavish more praise on those who post enthralling reviews, I have do so in past and you know who you are (also do not want anyone having a swollen head, you know..the one with the actual brain in it). So I learnt the do`s and don`ts, not posting in the wrong section, doing searches instead of just throwing out questions and when writing a review use an existing thread rather then create a new one. I did not wish to suffer the ire of senior members. Having been inspired by the great writings of certain senior members, I decided my lurking days were over and shared my wonderful experience with Miss Tyler.
In writing that review, it was like re-living the experience all over again. While I was typing the flood of memories came to the forefront of my mind. I did my best to explain all the vivid moments that I had experienced, and when I was finished I was quite proud of it. At first I think I was looking for approval, constantly checking out the outcall section seeing how many had read the review and looking for any replies. Hoping that guy with the monkey might pay a visit to my review and say ``good job``. Pretty sad case don`t you think..lol. I did receive a few compliments that had me beaming, and feeling quite full of myself.
There have been times where I have become slightly jaded towards merb. With all the accusations of shilling, petty bickering and the mud slinging that goes on. Hell even I got into that a little bit slamming a poster for what I thought was inappropriate behavior. I have come to realize that most things can be handled through pm`s and they are ususally misunderstandings. It was when I posted a thread on my personal weight loss that reaffirmed what I originally thought. Merb is a small community that does its best to help one another. So that is why I post reviews, I still enjoy seeing what others think of what I wrote. I definitely love to experience the moments again through writting them out. Most of all, it is helping other hobbyist out. This is not a cheap hobby and any help is always welcomed. So I hope some of my reviews have helped some of you, I know many of you reviews have helped me.
