    OK guys, to make this is simple as possible, let's do a little bio info here so that newbies can see who the "regulars" are, and so we can all know more about each other. Newbies should also post their info here so we can get to know them. :)

    That being said, let's try to follow a similar format:

    Please explain your ScreenName: i.e. "where did you think that up?"
    Title (if you have one with our FanForce chapter):
    Marital Status/Family Info:
    Age: of course, this one is optional :)
    Line of Business: i.e. "what do you do?"
    Favorite SW Movie
    Favorite SW Character
    Favorite Food:

    Add whatever else you like. Once we get the basics down, I think it'd be nice to have a different question each week that we all answer. My suggestion for this week would be: "What's the best meal you ever had? Where was it, and why was it the best?"

    Please explain your ScreenName: It's funny, the name "Vesper" also came from an RPG I used to play. I was a cleric and I literally picked a name from the dictionary and the name fit really well.

    "What's the best meal you ever had? Where was it, and why was it the best?"

    Well, this goes back a ways, but there's this place up where I used to live (Chicago) called Sanfrantello's. They had this great pizza that was just so unique that I've never run across since. There wasn't any strange ingredients on it, but it just had this flavor about it that's different than everything else. Of course, I won't be turning down any pizza from anywhere else (except California Pizza Kitchen... you won't find me going near that place).

    this is gonna take two different replies.

    age: 20
    line of business: student
    hobbies/interests: aside from the obvious(star wars, internet junkie)... writing, reading, trigun, aikido, drawing, trigun, video games, trigun
    favorite sw movie: empire strikes back
    favorite sw character: prequels - obi wan, original - luke, books - tie b/w wes janson and mara jade
    favorite food: it's hard to decide, i love food too much. chocolate, bacon, ham, granny smith apples, oriental... sadly i just discovered i'm gluten intolerant so i can't have a lot of my favorites (cake, cookies, doughnuts... OH THE INHUMANITY!!!)

    what's the best meal you ever had? where was it, and why was it the best?
    i went away to college the first time last semester. now the cafeteria at asbury is decent, but let's face it, kentucky can't pull off "southern style" food. and big cafeterias can't pull off most meals period. so i finally went home for spring break after about 3 months away and my mom fixed my favorite foods for supper when i finally came home. now it's nice enough to get your favorites, but when it's been 3 months since i had my mom's cooking it's heavenly.

    i talk to much and overanalyze things. sorry for the wordy replies.

    edit: my computer is evil. EVIL!

    How about color combo? I really like Red/Black mainly because growing up I was a follower of the Chicago Bulls and that's what their colors were. Plus I ended up accumulating a lot of Bulls shirts over the years (which most of them have finally been retired).

    Niiice Stardog! I loved Mother Love Bone! I gotta go with Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns. I don't like that they kinda clipped the ending on the Singles soundtrack, but I love the full song. Actually, I liked that whole early 90's music mood. Anyway, welcome!
