    Age 24
    I'm from all over. Went to high school in Connellsville, went to college in Grove City, just finished my master's degree last week at the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Been living in Monroeville for about 3 years while going to school. I also work at Toys R Us full time.

    Interests: Star Wars, reading, comics (Phantom of the Attic in Monroeville!), movies, radio.

    Saw Empire in the theater when I was young and Return of the Jedi 3 time I think. Saw Episode 4 for the first time on HBO in the early 80's. Saw the Special Editions 4 times each in the theater and Episode 1 11 times I believe. I watched Episode 1 back to back the first time I saw it at Tineseltown in Boardman Ohio. It has the biggest screen I've found around.

    Hi Josh,

    What ever happened to that giant Millennium Falcon that was hanging down from the ceiling at Toys R Us. It was there at about the same time the Episode I toys came in? I remember trying to figure out how to get that thing out of there. It wouldn't be hanging in you living room of anything like that? Would it?

    I'm not sure what happened to the Millenium Falcon. I think Hasbro took it back. However the big Naboo Starfighter is in my garage. :)

    Star Wars: When I was in fourth grade, my dad showed me the OT in this order: ANH, ROTJ, ESB. Needless to say, I've never forgiven him for ruining the "surprise" (kidding). I currently own six different versions of the OT and two versions of TPM.

    I'm a little nervous about college, understandably, so I figured this would be a good way to make friends before I get there. Sorry I rambled for so long!
