    I'd bet you're the only person who lists specific wines and jazz artists in their bio on the entire JC! [face_laugh]

    Late night coffee's got me buzzed, so I can't get to sleep...why not read message boards? ;)

    First Name: Mike
    Age: 26
    When you first found the JC: Lurked before AOTC and got semi-spoiled...stayed away until joining 3NS about 5 or 6 months ago.
    When you first got into Star Wars: Since I came out of the womb! One of my favorite childhood memories is my dad taking me to Toys R Us so I could get the Echo Base playset.
    Fave drinks: Cherry coke (non alcohol), Newcastle Brown Ale (alcohol)
    Fave food: Mexican
    Fave books: High Fidelity, Interview with the Vampire, Le Morte D'Arthur
    Fave movies: High Fidelity, Interview with the Vampire (imagine that!), Strange Days, X2, Amelie
    Fave sports: Hockey (San Jose Sharks), Tennis, Baseball (The steroid enhanced SF Giants)

    I'm surprised that there are this many hockey fans on 3NS. Every day without the NHL is at least one day closer to ROTS-that's the ONLY way I'm coping!

I enjoy a wide variety!

    Before I post this, I'd like to tell everyone a quote I like to acutally follow everyday. In ESB, when Luke is asking Yoda, "But how will I know the good side from the bad"? Yoda replies, "You will KNOOOOWWWWW...when you are calm, at peace". I know Yoda is talking about the Force, but I apply it as good or bad choices. I actually think about that when something bothers me at work, at home, or anywhere. I feel if I remain calm about bad situations, I can solve them. It really, really helps. Yeah, I know it's not a big secret to try to be calm when something is bothering you, but I think it makes a difference when one of your favorite characters from your favorite movie is saying it! And the way he says it, like an old friend giving good advice. I just thought I would share that with everyone, for my part.

    Ah yes, The Wastelands - the best of the Dark Tower series, although I haven't read the last one yet.

    I sing and play guitar.
    Used to be in a band called Smiling Politely. Still play acoustic by myself.

    I live in Edmonton, and the city is definitely affected by not having the Oilers around, but I'm coping. I'm back into the NBA again this year.

    excellent. I'm very impressed.

    As a huge Pumpkins and Simpsons fan, I thought it was apropos.
