Cool who are you?

I hope this doesn't sound too cringeably touchy feely, and I know that one of the main attractions of a site like this is anonymity, but I wonder what other members would think of a thread where they can post a few words about themselves? It's just that as a newish member, it would help to know a little about other members and might stop embarrassing mistakes like assuming that Beryl was Gil's curious toddler (sorry Beryl - at least I didn't assume you were his mother). I don't mean anything vile like the self congratulatory nudge nudge wink wink type profiles on internet daing sites ( NOT that I've ever seen any of THEM), but just a few pet passions and gripes, age, profession, etc.
I'm NOT going to start proceedings off in case this suggestion draws shrill shrieks of rage or yawns of disinterest...and if I don't post for a few weeks, it isn't because I'm cowering in shame at my ridiculed suggestion, it's because I may be computerless for a while... so don't feel inhibited in your opinions.
