    LOCATION(S): 121st and Farnam St., Right near Burke High School

    FAMILY/PETS: 2 Dogs (Soon to be 7, One is pregnant, eck), 3 Gundarks, 1 Womprat, and 4 Ewoks, and 5000 Gungans (We use them instead of pillows when we need to beat on something)

    This is my first post...I figured it would be an easy one.

    I look forward to attending some Omaha FanForce meetings.

    banthagrl and her husband suggested FanForce to me. Her husband suggested my user name. I'm neither stunted nor slime but it's funny and it's related to Star Wars.

    Does anyone know how Stunted Slime is related to Star Wars?
