    Let me start off: My name is Linda, and I am the Regional Support Administrator (RSA) for the Pacific Region of FanForce. The Pacific Region encompasses California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Alaska, and Hawaii. I am 37 and the mother of three children, Leia is 14, Lauren is 11, and Collin is 8. I Collect anything and everything with the name Star Wars on it, pictures of my collection can be seen in my Bio. I have also read each and every Star Wars adult novel, and some of the comic books. I also have built/converted a few lightsabers, and currently have both Jedi Robes and a Royal Guard Costume. My next costumes will be a Stormtrooper and a Rebel Scout Trooper. Other than Star Wars I am interested in Nelson DeMille Novels, <A TITLE="Click for more information about computers" STYLE="text-decoration: none; border-bottom: medium solid green;" HREF="http://search.targetwords.com/u.search?x=5977|1||||computers|AA1VDw">Computers</A>, traveling, and flying planes.

    How did you get started on SW:

    Well wene I was 2, my mother said that I never needed a babyseter because all she had to do was put on A New Hope and I would just zone out, untill it was over of couers, then I would just go back to driving her crazy. So she would just put it in aging and off I went with my eyes wide, mouth open and head telted to one side. She also told that the frist statment I had ever made was "I like the blue one" (Refering to R2-D2 of coures)
    And according to her, every time the sene when the Jaws shoot R2 with a I-on Blaster came on, I would get up start to walk-stop-and fall flat on my face,with the sound of couers, wwooooowwww-bang!(explands alot dosint it? [face_laugh] ) So wate what was the question? O yeah so thats were it all started for me at age 2. So I have been with Star Wars since a long long time ago...

    all right kid, let's blow this thing and go home.

    name: Justen Ochart
    age: 18
    location: cedar glen (near lake aarowhead)
    SW related intrests: original trilogy
    non SW intrests: acting, loard of the rings, art, music, and costume macking.

    now the big one: I have been a star wars fan for as long as i can remember. when I was about 5, we lived in a house which had a stair case in the middle of a big common room. one of my brothers and my favorite pass times was to put on my moms old SW sound track and run around the room whith tennis rackets (held handle out) acting out the death star escape scene(I was han solo of coarse ;)), periodicly screaming and changing direction.

    Okay my turn!
    Name: Courtney Smith
    Age: 18 ( I'll be 19 soon!)
    Rank: The Emperor's Hand ;)
    Location: well, physically I am in Redlands. However, my mind is currently residing in LA....I hope someday to join it....
    SW Related Interests: anything and everything under the sun!
    Non-SW Related Interests: Well, I love Harry Potter and The X-Men(suprise suprise considering the name :)) and I love the show Alias. I won't be as Presumptuous as to call myself an actor, but I love everything about the theater. whether it be reading plays to performing them(I do have to admit I like the latter a little bit more)and yes, I am one of those "Hollywood Hopefuls". I am addicted to reading and i am a music junkie. I listen to everything from marilyn manson to norah jones to soundtracks of movies and musicals...I love musicals, and Moulin Rouge and Chicago top the list right now... and so.....yeah....
    How did you get started on SW: I loved watching the movies when I was a child, but we never owned them :( when the re-release came out and I discovered the expanded universe of the books and graphic novels, I corrected that error ;) I am currently making a Jedi costume....and I want to do Leia's Throne room dress....ah, perhaps someday....

    and in case you haven't noticed I am very much a Gemini! ;)

    Name: Dana

    Age: 18 (19 exactly 10 days after Court...)

    Current Location: New York City (bleeeehhh!! - word of advice: stay on the west coast!)

    SW interests: mostly the original trilogy and the books... but I'll watch the prequels out of loyalty...

    Non-SW interests: umm... writing, reading, emergency and podiatric medicine (there's a combo!), swimming, water polo, surfing, hockey (go Canucks!), WWII history, languages (mostly French, Japanese, German, English, and Swahili), old OLD movies (aka, Jimmy Stewart - I'd marry him if he weren't dead!), animals, theatre - kind of - (used to be a Theatre major, but kinda got burnt out... lol, that's really funny because I was a lighting design concentration ... "burnt out"... heh... sorry)... oh yeah, and I looooove corny jokes (as if you couldn't tell from the last stupid one I just made...). I have a ton more interests, but if I kept naming them, I'd never get this done!

    How I got into Star Wars: I think I was three or so (give or take a year) when I walked in on my parents watching ROTJ, and I joined them... I was forever addicted. Oh yeah, and I won a bet in seventh grade for wearing Leia buns two weeks straight :)
