    Hi Everyone! I just joined the forums a few days ago, and have been urged to post a message by my dear friend, JediObiKat.
    I'm Crystal, but I go by Cee. I live in Phoenix, and met Kat at work, since she's up here until she goes back to school. I'm 25, and somewhat of an Anakinaholic, hence the name.
    I thought it would be fun to post a photo, so here is Kat and I in the breakroom at lunch today.

    I would love to come down, and hang out with you guys. I'm too scared to join the Phoenix crew. It's so nice to meet other people that love StarWars!

    Well, I'm kind of a StarWars lite-fan.. love the movies, haven't read any books, and I worry that I may not be hardcore enough. I think I'll try and post on their MB. :)

    Not anything to have issue with. Intensity of fandom is not very important.

    Most of us look at Star Wars (and our reasons for being into it) from different angles (the mythology, toys, sound, special effects, significant other into it, role playing, dressing up, books, childhood memories, etc). No one reason or level of intensity is right or better than anyone elses reasons.

    As long as you have fun it matters not what your level of knowledge.

    Being a "Star Wars-Lite" fan should only hinder you if you try playing the STAR WARS trivia games.
    Some of us are going to be up in Phoenix on the weekend of January 13-14th to work the P F Changs marathon with the Dune Sea Garrison, a division of the 501st legion. These guys are rabid fans but most of them are housebroken. If you'd care to hang out with both groups I'm sure that would be fine (So tell me, kid, have you ever wrangled?) Either Kat or these threads can give you the info.

    OK, I didn'tget that. Is Tucson south not of Phoenix? Hence going down (south)?

    Or are you making a comment about Phoenix?

    I'll take a stab at this. Tucson is at a higher elevation than Phoenix, so while Tucson is below (south of) Phoenix on a map, Phoenix is downhill from Tucson.
