    1. How did you find the JC and what made you register?
    I was at fanfiction.net when I started reading red rose knight's stories there. I got impatient and she mentioned that her stories were here, so I followed. I lurked for about 3 months (yes, I'm slow) and registered in January 2002.

    1. Worked out
    2. Made chocolate chip cookies
    3. Posted here

    3. What is your favorite movie (provided you can pick just one)?

    6. How do you think the other Housemates will view you after this game?
    I hope that they'll view me as someone who is helpful, fun and glad that they got to know me.

    7. What is your most distinguishing feature?
    I guess physically it's my smile, but personality wise it's my laugh. I have a pretty big laugh.

    8. What is your earliest childhood memory?
    Playing in a park across the street from my house. I must have been about 3 years old.

    9. Name your favorite beverage.
    Water. When I allow myself, I enjoy a Coke.

    Alright, I'm answering these, then I'm off for a bit:

    1. How did you find the JC and what made you register?

    I found it way back in 99 after TPM came out. I signed up as another handle, but I mostly lurked, and mostly posted in the collecting forum, which was way more active back then, in the UBB days.

    2. Name 3 things you did for ?fun? today.

    Well, I played minesweeper for an hour at work. I posted here. And I, uh, rembered Buck Rodgers.

    3. What is your favorite movie (provided you can pick just one)?
    Probably ROTJ.

    4. What is the most recent book you?ve read?

    The Iliad. I'm almost done with the Odyssey now, then I'm reading Virgil's Aenid (sp?)

    5. Tell something about yourself you never told anyone before.

    Loganberry is good.

    6. How do you think the other Housemates will view you after this game?

    They will think I'm strinkingly handsome, side-splittingly funny, and thought provoking. Probably not.

    7. What is your most distinguishing feature?

    Eyes.

    8. What is your earliest childhood memory?

    My third birthday party. My cake looked like a jack-o-latern. When I blew the candles out, I got a headache. My mom didn't have any silver ware either (it must have been just after her first divorce), so we ate the jack-o-latern with our hands.

    9. Name your favorite beverage.

    Beer. Shinerbock. It's made in Texas, and if you don't live in the south, you're missing out. Well, if you don't drink beer, I guess you're not. Blue Pepsi is good too. Any drink colored blue is tasty. Even Windex.

    10. Do you sleep on your side, back or curled up in a fetal position?

    All. I don't sleep so well anymore :(

    I found it several weeks before TPM came out. I guess I just wanted to chat about Star Wars, and I had no idea that I'd be so addicted, hehe.

    I finished LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring (the book) today, I listened to a CD that I made last night, and I took a nap.

    3. What is your favorite movie (provided you can pick just one)?

    Shoot, I'd go with Thunderball. Good acting, good plot, good action. Too bad I'm not a big fan of Kevin McClory. :p

    As I said two questions ago, Fellowship of the Ring. Damn good book.

    I spun my car out of control last year on the interstate. Luckily, both my car and I went unscathed.

    Pulling my Tommy Turtle around when I was 2 years old, when I was living in the Iowa countryside.

    Oh, I guess I'd go with water, Pepsi, Mt. Dew, and Mike's Hard Lemonade.

    10. Do you sleep on your side, back or curled up in a fetal position?

    Probably a combination of the three. I try to sleep on my back, but I just get too uncomfortable.

    I don't think there is anything that I haven't told someone.

    7. What is your most distinguishing feature?

    1. How did you find the JC and what made you register?

    I had just gotten a new computer in February of '02. Attack of the Clones was close to release, and I wanted to find some news on the movie. So I put "Star Wars" into the search engine, and TF.N was one of the first places to come-up... :)

    And I registered for two reasons:

    1) Attack of the Clones Survivor Game

    2) The Blue Yoda Society


    2. Name 3 things you did for ?fun? today.

    It's a tough choice, but I'd have to say ESB.

    I've read most of "The Hobbit" by JRR Tolkien


    5. Tell something about yourself you never told anyone before.

    I'm a big fan of the Teletubbies...//shifty-eyes// [face_blush]


    6. How do you think the other Housemates will view you after this game?

    I think they'll view me as one helluva nice guy who worked hard to get along with everyone and played the game to the best of his ability...


    7. What is your most distinguishing feature?

    My mind.


    8. What is your earliest childhood memory?

    Hmmmm....I'd say camping with my folks was one of the earliest that I can remember...


    9. Name your favorite beverage.

    Err, that's it. I'm pretty bored. Hello all. cbjedi asked me to stop by, so I have. Enjoy the game and all that. Try, at the very least to be intelligent and imaginative.

    That's my advice, anyway.

    I like Teletubbies. For some reason, I always thought La-la was kind of hot, eventhough she looked like the rest of them.

    Ooooh, questions! Here we go.

    1. How did you find the JC and what made you register?

    Well, it was around the time of The Phantom Menace's release, and my sister's boyfriend, who's now her husband, always used to visit theforce.net for news about Episode I. I had an explore of the place, found the forum, and started posting there!

    2. Name 3 things you did for ?fun? today.

    Errr..... [face_blush] . Actually, as it's just the morning, I haven't done anything fun at all yet!

    3. What is your favorite movie (provided you can pick just one)?

    Hmm....it's either going to be Jaws or Raiders of the Lost Ark. I think I'll go for Jaws! :D

    4. What is the most recent book you?ve read?

    Erm....well, as I'm dyslexic, I actually find reading very difficult, but I am half way through Catch 22 at the moment, which is extremely good so far! :D

    5. Tell something about yourself you never told anyone before.

    When I'm alone in the house, I occasionally pretend I have a lightsabre, and start to waving it around at imaginary baddies. And I'm twenty-one. [face_blush]

    6. How do you think the other Housemates will view you after this game?

    The same as everybody else views me. With total shock and disgust!

    7. What is your most distinguishing feature?

    Erm...I don't know. Probably my hair, as everybody describes it as Hobbity.

    8. What is your earliest childhood memory?

    I don't know. I can't remember :p !

    9. Name your favorite beverage.

    TEA! :D

    10. Do you sleep on your side, back or curled up in a fetal position?

    I think it changes througout the night, but I usually wake up on my side, I think.

    Okay, now that we've all had a chance to read the answers to these questions, time to post some of your own. I'll post a question now and the next person will answer that and post another question...and so on.


    Do you dream in color or black and white?
