    Wow! I think this is the only one of my threads anywhere that has survived more than a week without me bumping it all the time...

    It's cool to see how everyone has something in common with someone else besides Star Wars, although that's enough in itself...

    hey, about the color black, it is not an absence of color, actaully there are 2 ways of looking at it. Either the complete absense of light, but I have read that it is actgaully all the colors in the world combined.

    since any color you see is technically every color of light except for the color you see it as, then black, absense of light, is in fact all colors. White however, is also not an absense of color,
    Absense of color is Clear.

    Hey Kat, I see you have the same birthday as my grandmother, the only diffrence is about 66 years lol.

    That would be cool! I have the cutting edge on DVD of course, and I hate to admit when I first started skating I had to do figure skating with my sister, thankfully dad saved me by also enrolling me in hockey. Made for some very unusual problem but hell the only boy in a mass of girls skating? At 8 years old, I was the most popular boy in the building...lol


    Hmm, listening to NIN at work on headphones, surrounded by suits and ties...hehe if they only knew!

    Ok, we TOTALLY have to have a Cutting Edge movie night! Maybe combined with a trip to an ice rink so we can all demonstrate our grace and agility on skates? Ok, maybe so we can all work on staying up on skates. :)
