    CarolynNC, I'm happy to "meet" you! We probably will be the oldest actual fans there :) I'm a February baby, BTW... so, do I have you beat?

    I'm very glad to see someone else continues to have a interest in the best movie franchise ever. I've loved it since '77, and I'm even involved in the Lining Up crowd at the Chinese Theater for the next episode...can't get enough of it. The camaraderie of SW fans is terrific.

    Hi ValedaKor,

    I think I win (although I'm not sure that's a good thing :D)! I'll be 52 in August. I'm really excited about the Celebration. My son has grown up on the trilogy. It will be fun to see it all thru his eyes. There's going to be so much going on. Hopefully as newbies to the con scene we won't be overwhelmed.

    Name: Heidi
    Age: 27
    Male/Female: Female
    Location/FF Chapter: Just joined the Steel City Jedi Knights back in January

    Time on FF boards: I've been lurking for a pretty long time, but didn't actually sign up until Feb. of this year, and don't post a lot. Reading is a lot more fun - you guys are a riot! I'ts so great to know there's people out there as crazy as I am about Star Wars.

    Favorite SW movie: ANH
    Favorite SW character: Qui-Gon Jinn - an honorable man with a bit of a renegade streak - my kind of guy.

    Been a SW fan since: 1977 - it was the first movie I ever saw, and I've been crazy about it ever since. I've also managed to corrupt most of my siblings (I even have a brother who's coming out to C2 with me) and my parents still think I'm nuts.

    What you look forward to most about SW C2: walking around in my Jedi costume in the midst of something that will probably be the closest to reality the SW universe gets, meeting people who who are just as nuts as I am, having a great time, and plain getting away from my responsible, practical job for 5 days and being a total fan girl. ;o)

    Carolyn and Patricia, we had better not all be seen in the same place -- they will want to break out the rocking chairs and the canes... :)

    Very happy to see us "oldest fans" get the chance to participate in something that is the coolest thing going. I'm participating in the Line Up at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, so I can say that :)

    Counting the days to Indy....
