    I know, this feels like every time you got a new teacher back when you were at school (not going to mention 'how' far back that was, lol) & had to stand up in class & tell everyone all about yourself.. Again, and again, and again.. [face_tired]

    That being said [face_thinking]

    This Thread is for Members of the Reading FF.

    Who are you? :confused:

    Name - Stacy

    Collector - Not any more ( Don't know, just lost interest one day )Although once upon a time I collected figures, and ships, and stamps, and film cells, and posters, and pez dispensers.

    Fan since - 77, I remember hearing kids in my first grade class talk about some movie called Star Wars.

    OT or PT - Both ( Although they don't line up but, don't get me started on that. )

    EU - Once upon a time. The expanded universe was good. ( The Thrawn Trilogy, Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina, Tales from the New Republic, Shadows of the Empire). Now, it seems as though they've run out of story lines, and story arcs, and now they just rehash the same old material..... i.e. Darth Cadeus/Anakin Skywalker Part 2

    Clone Wars Season One- Hated the movie( In part because Lucas just wanted another payday), but also because of some the characters and cutesy nonsense. I was very pleased with the series. It really seemed to hit it's stride about half way through the season.

    Special abilities - Sarcasm and cynicism

    About me---I'm married, have been for 14 years. My wife and I have two children ages 10 and 12, they've been hooked on Star Wars for years. Although my wifes gag reflex triggers at the mere mention of Star Wars.
