    Hey, I know it's been done... but oh well

    It seems most of the talk over at Starbucks in the OT is about literature... so we are opening a branch here.

    In the traditional manner, I will start with a poll:

    1.Who is your favorite OT character?
    2.Who is your favorite EU character?
    3.How's you get your screen name?
    4.Who is your favorite EU author?
    5.What other series do you like?
    6.Do you like butter or margarin better?
    (you know, there always has to be a truely enlightening question)
    7.Tell us a bit more about you.
    8.Do you like your coffee black?

    I'll start:
    1.Han, well of COURSE!
    2.Hmmm....I don't know, I like Han better than anyone, but I'd have to say Thrawn is pretty cool.
    3. Solo for Han and Jones for Indy... hey, I AM the biggest HF fan... gimme a break...
    4.Timothy Zahn
    5.Any and all Michael Chricton stuff, Tom Clancy
    6.Margarin.... I'm just used to it... and it has SO many uses... I use it to oil the falcon sometimes, but don't tell Han...
    7.Over in OT, I am a well known maniac, a member of the OT Recast, where I am Han and the Head Carpenter.... Insanity is the only way, man... Actually, I am a new reader of EU, so I am counting on you people to enlighten me.
    8.Ick! I have to have a scoop of cream and of course, SUGAR!

    Ok, now it's your turn... go ahead....

    By the way, you can just call me Solo *wink*

    1)Vader

    2)Hmmm...tough one. Right now, I have to say Corran Horn.

    3)Really original--I put "Darth" in front of my last name.

    4)Stackpole

    5)Clancy is great. I'm going to work on re-reading Lord of the Rings before the movie comes out.

    6)Butter--but I use it sparingly.

    7)I postulated years ago that "Darth" was a title and not a name, and my friends laughed at me. I nearly cried during "Jessie's Song" in Toy Story 2. I spend too much money on DVDs.

    8)Cream and sugar, please.
