    How did you get hooked on Star Wars I first saw SW in the summer of 1977. The moment Darth Vader stepped through the smoke and appeared in all his sinister looming evilz, I was hooked.

    How did you find SWAP (or how did SWAP find you) I'm a founding member. Back in Jan of 2001, I googled 'star wars pittsburgh' found these boards and folks who were trying to start up a fanforce in Pittsburgh. Been here ever since.

    Hobbies Crochet, writing emo dramaz fanfic, reading, spoiling my nephews/nieces, playing on the interwebz, SW and other scifi franchises

    Favorite SW character and why Qui-Gon Jinn. Strongly principled, strong willed, doing his best to do what's right even if it brings him into conflict with others, teacher, he's got a dry sense of humor (look at that twinkle in his eye), flawed -- and yeah, the fact he is imperfect is one of the reasons I find him so interesting, and he is nice to look at.

    Favorite non SW character Wash from Serenity

    Favorite Star Wars Movie A New Hope

    Favorite Non Star Wars Movie Casablanca

    Favorite TV show I don't have one alltime favorite, although I'm a fan of Doctor Who, Project Runway, Good Eats, Supernatural and The Daily Show.

    Favorite Color Green

    Favorite Food Coffee (Yeah, its a beverage not a food, but its my fav anyway)

    Favorite Cartoon Phineus and Ferb

    Favorite game (video, board or puzzle) Playing cards (rummy, solitare), Scrabble, RPG. I don't have the hand eye coordination for video games lol,although I've recently become addicted to Webkinz

    Favorite Book. Too many to pick just one. Douglas Adam's books, Good Omens, Some of the Valdemar books, some of the spencer detective books, history books are always entertaining

    Random fact about yourself I love corny jokes like knock knock jokes and silly puns.

    How did you get hooked on Star Wars? I was born the same year ANH came out, and my parents weren't big into movies, so I didn't see them the first time in theaters. I grew up watching them on TV and playing with SW action figures at my neighbor's house. My friends and I used to pretend we were various characters and act out movie scenes too.
    How did you find SWAP (or how did SWAP find you)? I met them at the Pittsburgh Comicon
    Hobbies? costumes, customizing action figures, comics, video games, collecting toys, flea marketing
    Favorite SW character and why? That changes any given day. Right now I'm in an Obi Wan Kenobi state of mind.
    Favorite non SW character? Once again, that changes. Right now it's either Indiana Jones or Green Lantern
    Favorite Star Wars Movie? I guess Empire Strikes Back
    Favoirte Non Star Wars Movie? I don't have a favorite. I've been watching a lot of Tarentino lately
    Favorite TV show? Of all time, Twilight Zone. Current, I'd have to say Batman:Brave and the Bold
    Favorite Type of music? I like almost all music
    Favorite Song? I have several, but today it's "Big Dipper" by Cracker
    Favorite Color? Green
    Favorite Food? Chinese or sushi
    Favorite Cartoon? Batman:B&B or Clone Wars
