Writing team now 33% more Irish and female

First days are a bit scary, aren't they?

We'll need to know how to say your name phonetically please, otherwise we'll get it totally wrong and I'll probably end up calling you either Wiffy or Wifey depending on how evil I'm feeling.

Welcome aboard the crazy train. Next stop, daftsville.

Edit: Oh and watch out for Edwin 'hairsniffer' Evans-Thirlwell. He's a bit of a lothario.

Say "E is for egg" but don't say "is" or "egg".

Oh and shorten the "for" too.

Yeah, it's pronounced a bit like "ether" but with a slightly elongated "ee" sound at the start.

Eefer.

I remember seeing she in ginx tv, or is it blurb now, anyways I assumed it was due Julia Hardy being too close to an electromagnet. Still, welcomes. Shame it is a website/magazine as she has a lovely accent.

Hello all!
Yes, I probably should have provided a bit of help on how to say my the ridiculous collection of vowels I call a name. Tifa without the T is a pretty perfect approximation - and where my Twitter handle comes from. Thanks for the welcomes, first day is going well so far...

The main thing I gleamed from this is, *lets out sigh of relief* I'm not the only one who felt that bioshock infinite's ending was somewhat lacking. If you do end up talking about it, I for one will be listening. :D

Nice to see a different face added to the OXM Team!

From my experience, Ed is great, Jonty is also cool and Log is just downright bizarre so good luck!!

Aaah, I take it by that it means ol' 'hairsniffer' hasn't been on the prowl yet then?

If he offers to 'help' you with your work and casually leans over your shoulder, be aware, that's his signature move. Quagmire would be taking notes.
