Greetings! It seems you have come across my profile.
I've been a member of Gaia since July 21st 2006
For the first two years, I really didn't log in, since I was focused on other things in my life. In 2009 I came off my hiatus when I logged in one day and fall in love with the Monthly Collectibles (especially Goti the Kid) and was active on and off up to 2014 until the Gaia Dark Age of Goldenort had started to take over. I decided after a few weeks to leave for good. I donated/sold almost all my inventory and left with no intention of ever logging back in. I did come back, however, in early Dec 2016 to start anew when I heard Lanzer was back. Then took another hiatus for about 16 months for no reason (at all) and now I'm back lurking around.
My profile is a boring/floral/crowded mess! Its a work in progress.
I generally do not accept friend requests unless we have had a conversation or two. Please, leave a comment or PM introducing yourself.
On the right, there is a tab called Link Billboard
. I had taken some time going through my "Subscribed Threads" and have linked a lot of my favorite threads, mini shops, guilds, charities, guides, and hangouts to my profile. I did this for two reasons; firstly to make it easier for me to keep track of them and secondly to promote them to you. So please click on any of the banners & check out some awesome threads!
If you look over to the left, you will see a LARGE
wishlist...The Never-Ending Wishlist. I am slowly
working on it. I love collecting, so item quests are my top favorite thing to do on this site. Mostly
every item listed on there goes to an avatar I am working on. I do not feel guilty about the lengths I go to make avatars here.
For a brief but wonderful time... I got to be a guest writer on the user run Gaia Online Magazine. The magazine has been long shut down sadly, but the memories are very priceless to me. Here is a link to issue # 6 where my article "The Angel Halo" is featured. Issue #6 of Gaia Online Magazine
My favorite part about writing this article was interviewing the very few at the time
that owned the Angelic Halo. I got to interview one of my long time Gaia idol's B R A I N
. He made me laugh so much! If another user run magazine appears - be sure that this gal will write for it!

My username is A BIT ODD, so let me explain it; it's part Shakespeare and part Folklore. Tempest from his sonnet "The Tempest" meaning "The Great Storm" and Lorelay is the name of a famous siren from German Folklore. Simply, my username means: "Storm Siren." I didn't spell it "Lorelei" because "Lorelay" is also acceptable for the spelling of the name.
I do prefer to be called TL
Thank you for visiting, and I wish you a wonderful experience on Gaia.Yours Sincerely,

Gaia Moments of "Why the Hell did I do that?"
☑ Buying over 1,000 flowers for no reason and then couldn't really sell them.
When Gaia has made me upset:
☑ Reported for Scamming. Unfairly. I had a contest for an Avi TekTek and the Winner didn't claim her prize. I reached out to her many times, however, she decided to report me for scamming. I got so angry about this, I went on a hiatus for over a year.
☑ Brought an Aquarium Starfish in the MP. I went to put it in my tank and the Starfish needed to be Flushed right then and there! Reported and got no reply. Thanks, Gaia Mods... I want my 60K back.
☑ Voted in the Cats vs. Dogs poll and didn't get the achievement.
☑ Falling for the "Winter Rose Scam" and selling one of my Uncanny Form's.
☑ I miss the chance to get the 2006 Anniversary Sash and still are unable to get it.
☑ Being SPAMMED thousands of announcements to buy GaiaCash starting in 2014.
