    I'm brand new too. I'm Patti, 38, with two boys, 5 and 3. We are in Fort Mitchell - you know, the "South Side of Cincinnati." I just started showing my 5 year old some of the original trilogy. He said Episode IV was "kinda slow in the beginning." Yeah, he's only 5! He does enjoy when things explode.

    I decided to show him Episode I after trying to explain what that means. LOL! I just said we're going to start at the beginning when Anakin was a little boy. He likes that. The 3 year old's attention isn't there yet. He plays with Legos while we watch.

    I have not met anybody from Fan Force yet or posted here before now. I might qualify as an "old fart" since I experienced the original trilogy when I was old enough to appreciate them. I seem to remember opening the movie section of the paper every day for about six months in 1977 and saying, "It's still there. I guess I should see it." That was the beginning of the end for me. Since then, I have been a mostly closet fan. I haven't been to an event / convention in years but would like to meet other fans eventually.

    I have recently begun to read some of the books and really like them. Anybody have any suggestions on their favorites?

    The Thrawn trilogy and New Jedi Order are all good in my opinion, have not read much of prequal selection.

    Well, welcome to Cincinnati. Yes, it can be a bit slower, but that does have some advantages. Having been to many places when I worked field service, Cincy isn't bad overall.

    Think of the up sides. The leaves are just starting to change and just about nothing beats a nice drive through Indian Hill to see all the trees, except maybe a good picnic in the parks of the area on the warmer days of fall.

    We do have some of the worst drivers here though. You'd think that with getting snow year in and year out, folks would learn to drive in it.

    Howdy Y'all. I'm Melissa, or as everyone else calls me "Red". I'm currently in the Fanforce here in Evansville, IN, but I am Moving to the Fairfield/Hamilton area come April 1st (no, seriously) I'm 30 and working as an Accounting Assistant at the moment, but looking to be a Computer Tech once I move (if I can ever make more time to get the studying done for the A+ certification). I just wanted to staop and say hey, and introduce myself in the hopes of getting to know some of you before the big move, that way, I'll know more people and hopefully have made a few more friends in the area. Oh, I'm currently the Secretary/Treasurer for the local group too, and the social gathering co-ordinator (group outings like movies and diners and what-not) I'm just a general fan of Star Wars, and pretty much all things Sci-Fi, especially BSG right now. (Although I do have a few SW PEZ heads that I love!) :D

    Hello, everybody. I am new to the area. I've never been part of an actual 'fan-force' meeting, but would love to meet folks in the area. I'm actually south of Cinci in Florence. I'm a mom, so finding playdate partners would rock - especially if you are into fan fiction!

    Figured it was due for an update. Things have been pretty hectic the last 6 months. We moved across the river to the Turpin area off Clough back in February. I'm still getting used to actually being in Cincy and Ohio after 15 years on the Light (KY) Side. We've had a pair of weddings recently, my son turns 2 this week, and we leave for vacation in Michigan in 2 weeks. I wonder if my life will ever calm down for awhile?

    Oh wow! You live in the Turpin school district off of Clough?!? My wife and I are right up the hill near the interstate! Welcome to the neighborhood!

    I know what you mean about life being hectic. I get to pull six day work weeks from now until who knows when in trying to get stock made for our new bottles.

    In the background you can see the old bottles. The new ones look a lot more sleek. Not to mention they can be interesting to run.

    Oh, sorry for the commercial aspect of the whole thing. That wasn't intentional.

    I figured since I posted on the meet thread I better introduce myself. My name is Jorge I am 30 yrs old. I have a son due around this Thanksgiving. I am a originally from Celina, OH, which is about an hour northwest of Dayton, 45 minutes southwest of Lima, an hour southeast of Fort Wayne, IN, and 10 minutes from the IN border in case people haven't heard of it. I currently live outside of Worcester, MA which is about an hour from both Boston, MA and Hartford, CT. I come back to OH 3 to 4 times a year and always looking for more things to do with fellow SW fans. You guys seem pretty active here so I will check in often to see what is going on.

    Later

    hi, I am computer geek and Star Wars fan. Some of you might know me from the picnic as Maramijade's boyfriend. I happen to be interested in starting a Star Wars D20 game if anyone is interested.
