    Just wondering who all is still here.

    And who all is lurking. I know there are quite a few lurkers. So, why not introduce yourself? :)

    I'm James, 22 years old and I work at a local Starbucks in inner Charlotte.
    I am a resident Star Wars/Serenity (and Firefly)/Sci-Fi geek.
    And a musician.. and lots of other things to, including jerk, annoying, prudish at times and more (ask Jada, Gregory or Jaime! ;) )

    You?



    edit: added smileys

    ps: had to add the age thing if only to bug Hope and Luis. :p

    pps: please don't kill me!

    Jaime here. I'mmm 20 years old [almost 21?[face_praying]] I'm not going to name where I work XD!! I love Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica [the original one], the Matrix, and yes.. even Star Trek.[face_blush]

    I've met James and hung out with him a few times, met Luis, and Gregory. Because they were nice enough to invite me to the Premeire when I first moved to charlotte[:D]

    and I really really /REALLY/ want to meet Jada.
    I think that is all I have to say.

    Me too! :D

    *gives James the hairy eyeball for the age remark* [face_plain] :p

    OK, I'm Jada. And I have a lot of socks. For those who think I have some weird fetish that I've just announced and that I went and bought out the local Walmart of their entire sock stock I'm not talking about those kind of socks although I do love fuzzy comfortable socks but I'm getting offtopic and I wouldn't want to do that because somebody might get confused and the answer to the question of what is a sock is that it is like a real life "sock puppet" except it is an online screen name and I just can't seem to express myself with one name. </breathe!>

    I'm not living in the area at the moment but that will be remedied soon.

    And yes, I'm older than all of you <face_geritol>. I saw Star Wars [NOT A New Hope] in the theater in 1977. I spent the entire summer watching it over and over and over again when most of you weren't even thought of much less conceived. [face_laugh] :_| [face_laugh]

    I have done a LOT of work with the Tucson Fan Force which is very similar to this group -- a year ago the group had faded from existence and now it is completely revitalized and very active.

    So, I'm looking forward to doing lots of stuff with you all when I do get there.

    [:D]

    Patrick here. New to the area. Saw SW in theatres in 1977 as well. Fan of Batman, Danzig, Misfits, Slipknot, Thor (comic). Been told I look like someone famous, unfortunately not from SW Universe.
    And try cycling socks! They are the best!

    Anything. I'm currently working on a song for a Brittish metal band and my solo stuff is indie pop rock sort of music. Though, I've done some more metal stuff lately (Thrice/Soulfly sort of stuff) and I did jam band stuff at the start of my career. :p

    And I remember you from the photos. :p

    Poo - when in April?

    and welcome Patrick. :D

    Hope....

    O:)

    That does sound like a NASCAR thing.

    And yes, this is Jada! I'm going to be using my Boga account a bit more since I am going to be the Interim CR for Tucson.

    Weird, what a coincidence. I spent practically all day applying job searching and applied to a few airlines. American Airlines and AirTran Airways were the only ones I could send an application to. I'm not 21 yet so United Airlines won't hire me. :(

    But that's cool that you're going to be coming to Charlotte on business, Pooh. Hopefully we'll all have an event going on.

    I applied for a flight attendant job and it clearly stated that I'd have to be 21 years of age to qualify. I did the application anyway and put in my birthday and it said at the end that I do not meet the requirements because of my age. :(

    you can also go to you nearest airport(CLT probably) and get a app there...appy for any job, then transfer when you turn 21

    Yeah, I checked the CLT website and got nothing because I had already looked at all the major airlines websites already. I applied to be a customer service agent for American Airlines, and a Flight Attendant for AirTran Airways. I'll just see where it goes from there and if they hire me then maybe I'll be able to get a job easier with United after I turn 21.

    All I know, is that I want to travel.
