Hi there! :bat:

I joined this forum three years ago, but for some reason I haven't posted yet. I guess now's the time. I'm not a King expert by far, but I've always been obsessed with IT. That's also where my username comes from; Klerekast ("wardrobe closet") is Ben's nickname in Dutch. Haystack was already taken. Actually it's supposed to be KlereNkast, but Klerekast is old Dutch. I like it better (I'm still not used to the new (ridiculous) spelling rules, even though I'm only 31, lol), plus it fits better, seeing how this Haystack business takes place in the 50's anyway. :welcoming: Ben is my favourite Loser, and not just because I was a fat kid too. He has a beautiful personality.

So, I'm 31-years-old, live in The Netherlands with my dear husband and two cats, I love metal (especially Amorphis) and Irish music (both traditional and "modern", Christy Moore is my favourite artist by far, The Cranberries are my pet band), which is probably sparked by the fact that I have Irish roots, and I'm an aspiring witch.

Enough about me, I'm looking forward to join any discussions about my favourite book! :distracted:

Welcome! That's a really cool logic behind your user name. And, now I've learned something about the Dutch translation of It! Thanks for the lesson!!! Ben is my favorite It character, too. Who couldn't relate to a kid who finds sanctuary in a library.

Welcome. I saw a clip of your Prime Ministers yesterday at a meeting with US reporters shouting questions. When your PM asked ‘Are they always like this?’ as reporters shouted unintelligibly, it made me chuckle.
