    Hey folks,

    Despite my life-long love of Star Wars, it hasn't been until the last few weeks that I've finally decided to join a Star Wars forum. I joined the forum at the SW:TOR website, and stumbled across this a few days ago.

    I'm a grad student at Penn State (seventh straight year coming up...) studying for my law and MBA degrees (previously obtaining a Bachelor of Supply Chain & Information Systems).

    I'm kinda a mix of old- and new-school Star Wars. I refuse to watch the special editions of the original trilogy, but I gladly watch The Clone Wars. I much prefer 90s/early 00s-era EU novels like the Thrawn Trilogy and the X-Wing series, but I am eagerly awaiting/looking at some of the newer material, like Knight Errant and the sequel to Allegiance.

    I hope to have a good time here with fellow Star Wars fans!

    (And as you've probably noticed, I talk a lot...)

    Hi Pennsylvanian! I just returned from a trek through Pennsyltucky where I ate at several Eat & Parks. I was at a convention in Butler and finally ate at an Eat & Park and became an addict to their amazing terribleness. I live in Philly and am currently safely back home. My wife is from near Penn State. Welcome. I have absolutely no idea what this post is about. I just like Eat & Park as of this past weekend and you mentioned Pennsylvania. Other than that, this probably constitutes as borderline trolling. Or at the very least meandering.

    Haha! It's okay.

    Eat n' Park is good times. I love their Bananas Foster French Toast. Soooooo good. I kinda feel like going there for breakfast buffet right now that you've mentioned it... but I know I'd eat way too much . lol

    I'm actually from the eastern side of the state originally, the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton area. I go down to Philly occasionally. Not a fan of big cities, really. Spent too much of my life in suburbia.
