If I were from New Zealand, I'd preform a haka for you. But I'm not.

Thank you for joining us, Devon! I'm thrilled to bits! Your invaluable critiques, courtesy and sense of humour have graced our forums admirably for the past six months so it is a pleasure to have you on board! (Sorry for all the exclamation marks but I'm excited, y'see.)

Thank you, thank you! I look forward to working on the team. Yay! I'm green now!

Oh, exclamation points are fine. ! See? ! Especially in an excited state!

And I'll have to look up to see what a haka is. Some kind of dance, maybe? Or am I way off the mark?

Edit: Yep. A dance. And sounds like an interesting one, too. Lots of shouting and chanting.

Well they better taste good; I spent all day in the kitchen.

Well it is not perfect, but here goes.
A cookie smiley
I found it on another site, just could not remember where till I was just thinking about it.

I can send the image to whoever can add them to WB, I just don’t know who.

I think that would be Cordatus, Tau. He's Admin. And that's a brilliant icon. Looks like chocolate chip - my favourite!

Hi Devon,

I am a New Zealander by choice. You may say the Haka is our national dance.

If some one dances the Haka for you, you are a privileged visitor like the Queen or other important dignitaries.

The dance however can be quite frightening and seen as a war dance when the All Black dance before an International rugby game.

Thank you, Mridula! I'm sure I'm going to like being on the team. Everyone (as I've said before I was given the privilege of joining the team) is just so nice; this forum is a comfortable place to be.

And puresnow, thank you for that information about the haka. Now I really, really want to see one!

Devon
