    1.Who is your favorite OT character?
    Chewie, with Ackbar a close second.

    2.Who is your favorite EU character?
    Wedge, if that counts, because we don't see much of his personality in the OT and he really comes to "life" in the EU, same with Ackbar ... strictly EU it's hard to pick, it changes all the time.

    3.How's you get your screen name?
    It's nickname for the name I usually use online, delphica, but that was already taken on this board. I checked the profile, and that person has not ever posted (in more than a year)... I wonder if there's any way of asking for that name.

    4.Who is your favorite EU author?
    Stackpole

    5.What other series do you like?
    Tad Williams's Otherland, Harry Potter, Stephen King's Dark Tower

    6.Do you like butter or margarin better?
    (you know, there always has to be a truely enlightening question)
    Butter. Margarin reminds me of going to my grandmother's house, and I suspect my grandmother thinks we are all still living during the Great Depression (only margarin and she reuses baggies).

    7.Tell us a bit more about you.
    Ummmm ... SW freak, I like to read a lot, I have a cat ... I have to stop before I realize how boring I am.

    8.Do you like your coffee black?
    I like my tea black.

    Hi everyone. :)

    Welcome delphy. I know how you feel on the name front. I've used this one for ages, but now when I sign up to newer boards, someone has already taken it.

    One black tea for the newbie.

    It's great to see people coming back into this place.

    Well, Bill Gates can't afford a decent haircut. I've had dreams of death by chocolate. Yes, i said dreams. Yep.

    Anyway, what are the topics for tonight? I didn't bother to read above except for the top 2 posts.

    Nothing much, the activity has been a bit slow here. I think everyone is still trying to read all of Kathy's books. Or like me, can't find them.

    African Queen is about this British woman who convinces this British fisherman in the Congo to take her down the river to fight the Germans, on his boat, the African Queen. They go through all sorts of dangers and troubles and stuff and fall in love. Its a pretty famous movie. I liked it.

    did you know that there is a new Ender book out?

    its the sequal to the last book Ender's Shadow... but its called Shadow??or Rise of the Hegemon

    Its called Shadow of the Hegemon. It is the sequel to Ender's Shadow, which is a parrelle book to Ender's Game. Ender's Shadow is about Bean's life before he got into the training, and what he did during Ender's Game. Its cool.

    Shadow of the Hegemon is about as different as Ender's Shadow as Ender's Game is to Speaker for the Dead, Ender's Game's sequel.

    I loved Shadow of the Hegemon. My favorite Card novel. And it leaves it open for another sequel!

    April 3rd will be a strange day for me. It's the 5th anniversary of my beloved aunt's death. And Conquest comes out. Yaaaaayyyy! I guess that defines life in a nutshell: Lot's of ups and downs. One thing will make me very sad and the other will make me very happy.

    Jenner and Anna discover Ellet's scheming, and mention that they will have to discipline her. The next time we see her, she is blissfully wedded to Dardy. What happened in the interim? ?[face_plain]

    2. Favorite EU Character: Mara Jade or Thrawn, with Karrde a close second.

    3. How'd you get your screen name: Um...long story. Let's just say it involves my fellow Star Ladies, a Con, and a filk contest. I wrote a filk. It was to a song by Madonna. 'nuf said. (My original SN was TIE Pilot, and still is sometimes...but ImperialGirl just stuck.)

    6. Butter or margarine: Butter. Absolutely. MUCH better for cooking.

    7. About me? Huh. I'm a grad student. I write my own fiction for sale. I'm a Star Lady and a member of Club Jade. (All opinions expressed are SOLELY those of ImperialGirl and do NOT reflect those of SL/CJ as a whole. /end disclaimer)

    8. Do you like your coffee black: Mocha latte with 2 shots of espresso and half the normal ammount of chocolate. (It's always too sweet at Starbucks.)
