    Greetings Chicago Force!

    I come to you from a line far, far away... all the way in Hollywood, CA.

    My name is Sameer, and I just moved to Chicago in July. Before then, I lived in sunny Southern California, where I was one of the founding members of LiningUp.net. We coordinated the Mann's Chinese Theatre line for Episode I and II, and we're working on the Episode III line as we speak. Actually, Matt (Darth Astuart) is out there right now - got to meet him when I was home for Thanksgiving!

    Anyway, just wanted to say hello and that I look forward to meeting you all some time soon. After going home and seeing all my LU.N friends, I realized how much I missed the 'SW geek' community... Matt has some great things to say about you all, and I'm excited about learning more about the group!

    Saw the posts about the party this weekend - unfortunately, I am working from 4 pm to midnight, but I might be able to play around with my shifts a bit to let me attend.

    take care, and MTFBWYA!

    - Sameer

    Come in, Mr Sameer

    We've been expecting you.

    Please wipe your feet, and ignore the ramblings of the one called "Jeff." He speaks lies.

    Lies, I tell you!

    Sameer, I'll save you a lot of time reading through posts out here: half of them are heavy sarcasm, the other half blatently untrue. Which category this falls into is up to you.

    hmmmm....

    is this a prisoner swap?

    We send Darth Astuart to LA and we get SameerUCLA in return?

    :D

    ....

    Welcome aboard....make yourself at home...
    and...
    don't let the current mild spell fool you...

    pack away the shorts and sunblock...

    and buy yourself that winter coat...

    Star Wars geeks? I'm insulted. We're not geeks. All of us were very popular in highschool, listen to Dave Matthews and spend our expendable cash on expensive cars, not Star Wars figures.

    Bosh

    Of course Bosh. In fact I'll be driving my pimped out '88 hatchback, stick shift Chevy Nova to the Christmas party along with half a dozen beautiful ladies.

    Oh yeah.

    well....

    I don't know about you guys...but my first car...which I still have....was a 64 GTO...421 cubes and tri-power....blow your doors off!

    I didn't turn geeky till I got older....

    so...that is another thing I can blame on "getting older"....

    :D

    Wait... they had geeks back when you were starting to get "older", Gochi??? (Oh, she's gonna hurt me for that....)

    Welcome, Sameer! Don't mind the flying put-downs, it's all done with the utmost respect and admiration.

    Yes Thom....
    there have always been geeks...

    back in my day they were call "spaz"......

    but I wasn't "spaz" in my youth....

    believe it or not....30 years ago...I was actually considered not half bad looking...
    and few cared about that because I had one of the fastest cars running the Chicago streets back in the early 70's....

    hey sameer! welcome to the boards!

    i see everyone's been raggin on you at every available opportunitiy. this is a sign that they LIKE YOU.

    heck, they treat me like garbage, and I still come back. luckily I know the truth about them.

    (i'm rubber, they're glue, whatever they say bounces off me and sticks to...them. crap. no rhyme.)

    Don't worry, I haven't been scared away yet. Trust me, I spent the last two years with a bunch of folks who ripped on each other at every opportunity - I think I can take it. ;)

    Just been busy with work. 4-midnight shifts suck. So do midnight-8 am shifts. Actually, work bites in general! :)

    won't be able to make it on Sunday, unfortunately, so I'll have to meet all you all some other time. maybe 12/20?
