    I know some people at my school who like SW. We don't gather or talk about it with each other though. We like different areas of SW too. I thought about starting a SW club at school, but I don't have the resources or time.

    Id like to have a sane conversation about star wars *for some reason thinks of Clerks* but if I even try to talk to the "closet" fans, they're either entirely wierd about it, overly talkative, or act like they have no clue what im talking about. Oh to have sane SW fans to talk to......

    OOoh, my dad bought a webcam for some odd reason, fun for me :)

    Hi! I'm back, though I don't know if I'll stick around. Nothing was happening three months ago, so I left after saying hi.

    I have some questions for you all that I hope you don't mind answering. I might be able to find the anwers to these if I just went back and read the previous posts, but I'm not really interested in doing that. Okay here they are:

    1) Do you read the Expanded Universe?

    If the answer to this question is no, then the rest ofthe questions probably don't apply to you.

    2) Are you interested in The New Jedi Order?
    3) Do you like Mara Jade?
    4) Have you checked any bookstores for an early copy of Greg Keye's Edge of Victory II: Rebirth?

    Well we're glad your back ;)

    Heh, sadly the only star wars book Ive ever read were the X-wing series :) so I cant really answer those questions, but yes, I do like Mara Jade from what Ive seen and read of her, i like that fact that she has red hair as I do :D

    Thanks. You know, before I read about Mara Jade, I thought people with red hair were rare. Now it seems like they're everywhere.

    Muahahaha, soon we'll take over ;)

    I think most of it has to do with the fact that most red heads get their hair from a box, to many people wanting to be red-headed anymore. Just gald Im a natural :D everyone wants to be like me, heh, thats a first ;)

    Yeah, I'm not sure...but people tell me it's reddish-brown, and I'm inclined to believe them.

    I just got back from a weekend of rafting on the Rogue River down in Grant's Pass. Have any of you been there? The water was lower than last year, but it was still a lot of fun! :)

    I'm glad to have some fellow Mara Jade fans in Oregon. :)

    Nathan- "I just got back from a weekend of rafting on the Rogue River down in Grant's Pass. Have any of you been there?"

    Nope, I've never been there. I hope you had a good time rafting. :)

    Jaya, we dropped in the river near Grant's Pass. The rafts fit seven people (a raft leader in the back, plus three peons with oars on either side ;) ) and we had thirteen rafts.

    The river was low because of the drought Grant's Pass has been having, but we still got to throw each other off the rafts, which is the best part, IMHO. [face_devil]

    1) Yes, lots of EU!

    2) No, lots of EU except, NJO.

    3) Yes, Mara Jade is cool.

    4) No, going to read Vector Prime first.

    I dyed my hair a red color about a year ago, now I'm growing it out. I had actually wanted to dye it a bluish-black (because that is Grand Admiral Thrawn's hair color), but it didn't end up right, so my mom and I tryed a red (after Jade's color) and it looked awesome. I love Timothy Zahn's books.

    Ouch. Things aren't going so well for Melarn. I hope the trip to Europe goes well.

    XCountryJedi, you should read the NJO. It's good, imo. Some people think otherwise. It's been kind of dark and depressing, but in Rebirth some hope arises; a little joy to help overcome the darkness. That's all I'll say about Rebirth, which is a good book, btw. :)

    Jade's hair color is getting popular, isn't it.
