    Yes , we do have to fix that. Joss Whedon and company are too good to
    miss out on. We own all the dvd seasons of Buffy,Angel, and Firefly, (that are currently available)and are now trying to get all the Astonishing X-men comics he is writing for. Although we missed getting issues 2 and 3......grrrr argh indeed.

    I have indeed found the "temp" board. And found it to be very cool. I am planning to schedule an appearance at a trivia night at this Chumley's place in New Berlin. We will have to wait and see on that.
    And I may trek up to fond du lac...that gaming store intrigues me. And of course the chance to meet some of you all. We may have been ships in the night already any way. If any of you attended Concinnity at MSOE
    I was there a couple of times. Peter Mayhew , and The Yoga /Blue Chick from farscape year( was not blown away...sorry scapers).

    Any who....hope to see some of you soon, and to become more of an official member of this group.

    Apparently creativity is uncool. :/

    She must be uncool--she's my sister.

    Actually, she got most of the coolness, all of the artistic ability, and, well, the hair. I apparently got the desire to spend my days in a dimestore and hang out with nerds in my spare time. Go figure.

    Hi Amy!

    Amy, well if you survived living with Jason, I'm sure you'll make it here. Welcome! Are you seriously near Mt. St. Helens? I've always wanted to see a volcano explode. From a safe distance that is. (BTW, nice creative intro!)

    Hi! Thanks. Yep, the mountain is burping. If you like, you can visit the Johnston observatory webcam if you go here:
    (okay, lessee if I can make a link...) (yay, I can!)

    It's only good during the daylight, of course.

    I slept through this morning's eruption because I was up all night playing Shadows of the Empire on N64. And by god, I got my flamethrower.

    Xizor. how I hate the smug face of Xizor.

    Yeah, so anyway, I hope it's cool that I pop in and say hi sometimes, even though I don't live in the neighborhood. I was bored with the lack of action on the ComedySportz forums this weekend and thought I'd go somewhere where people understand me when I say:

    Xizor. How I hate him. Curse you, Xizor.

    Amy, that link isn't working for me. I'm not a video gamer, but I'll curse Xixor for you, if you'd like.

    Xizor is quite a pile of suck. I loved that game back in the day, too. Kinda miss it now... <sniff>

    Welcome Amy! I bet we would love to hear stories of all the embarrassing things that have happened to Jason. ;) Just kidding Jason! :)

    I remember that game. I kept renting the N64 system from Blockbuster just to play it. I was lucky enough to beat it before I had to give it back.

    Nothing makes Jeff (or Dwayne & Marcy, or John, for that matter) tear up like video game nostalgia.

    Not really that new, but I just discovered this area.

    I live on the South Side of Milwaukee.

    Originally from the very small dark area northeast of Madison.

    Fall River, anyone?

    ....

    Anyone even heard of it?

    Um, the word fall and the word river are familiar to me, but not in conjunction with each other.

    Welcome to the boards, Tim!

    I live in Shorewood, by the way.

    Thanks for the welcome Sy

    I assure you, Fall River is a town - village actually - in south central Wisconsin. I have the diploma to prove it.

    I grew up just up the road from Fall River actually, so I know where that is. I interviewed for a job there just after college.

    Welcome!

    Thank you Jediracer and jedisister, for the kind words of welcome.

    Ah yes Fall River. "I once was a pirate..."

    Actually I once was a hick, now I'm city folk.

    Happy holidays everyone!

    I'm from Sheboygan and I am sure that Fall River can not be that bad if it has its own high school. Not like some of the places around here like Six Corners, Batavia, Mosel and Batavia.
