    Hello all. I've not been a regular on these forums for a couple of years. Even when I was a regular, I didn't talk much.

    However, I've been looking through the JC again recently and I realise I miss it. And I miss having star wars nuts around, so I think I'm going to be back for a good while.

    So... Hi. Nice for South UK to have its own FF area! :D I'll probably be making a nuisance of myself around here.

    Tarkin, you're BACK!

    Are you still down near Southampton? Or was it Portsmouth? I can't remember, bloody hell, it's been nearly 3 years since I first tried getting a damn chapter together :p Took quite a few attempts too...

    Up the wall? I'm nearly at the ceiling already! And yeah. I'm still near Soton. About half way between that and Bournemouth.

    Also, dear gods, someone remembers me? I'd thought I'd been able to keep lurking in obscurity. o_O

    Pfeh. Don't flatter yourself too much. :p I think my main cause of insanity was my housemates at uni. And trying to find a job after uni.

    Yes, I remember you. It was Asabrush and you who were doing the best job at helping along the creation of the chapter the first time, I think you did our first unofficial meet in Southampton...


    This shocks me. I can remember all of this from 3 years ago but I can't remember yesterday :p

    haha! Yes. Asabrush and I did indeed meet up in a pub in Soton. Not an epic gathering really. And I don't think we even talked about Star Wars! :eek:

    Does Asabrush visit the forums at all anymore?

    I think he still moans about the good old days and the current administration in FFUK Regional and Comms occasionally :p

    Too many times of my housemates slipping pink food colouring into my dinner or accidentally leaving a tap running and flooding the upstairs bathroom/kitchen. [face_nervous_twitch]

    People have always moaned about the current administration. :D

    And as far as I can tell, FFUK (thank gods they didn't change that to BIFF) is a much more pleasant community than it was.

    In my opinion.

    Your housemates sound even worse than mine! What about having to put up with them looking over the dinner you're cooking (without food colouring) and simply exclaiming "Ahh. Dysentery!"

    My word, Hal. About my first memory of TFN is you signature saying "They are not 'songs'. They are 'tracks' or 'cues'" How long have you had that in there?!

    Well, considering I achieved raw pork chops, sloppy toad-in-the-hole and gravy thick enough to plaster the walls with... I'll leave you to decide that one! [face_whistling] :D

    Hmmm. I think you may have had nicer housemates. Or mine were particularly mean. That said, the remains of one of my early attempts are still welded to a saucepan... :D

    Done that with chocolate before - I tried to melt it in the microwave in a glass bowl. Next thing I knew, the kitchen was filled with smoke and the choclate was alight... :_| Needless to say, we had to throw the bowl out... :(

    :(

    It wasn't too bad for me, though I could taste the ash for another couple of meals.

    We had an experiment of putting a baguette that had "do not microwave" on the packaging into the microwave. It sort of smouldered, so we took it outside and poured water onto it. It seemed to go out... eventually! :D

    Nice...

    My housemate's boyfriend (who also happens to be our Landlord's son), decided it would be a good idea to put a vinyl in the microwave... We ended up with a very unusual fruit bowl... Then there was the time he put a bar of soap in it... I'm quite surprised it still works, really... [face_worried]

    haha. I always wanted to try metal. Unfortunately, I've never quite dared. :(

    I hear grapes are rather spectacular as well.

    I've done metal, well a foil tray actually... Lots of very pretty blue sparks and mini forks of lightning... [face_worried]

    Not tried grapes though... *Wanders off to Sainsbury's to buy some* :D

    I do know someone who microwaved a hard boiled egg though... Apparently they explode... :eek:
