    after a careful, arduos and oh so long search (ok so I only ran the 'find files or folders' window thingy but still) I regret to say I can't find it. I must have erased it or something.

    I printed some out though so I may find it, but the gist of it was talking about how Han Solo was selfish and had an ungiving spirit at first which led him into trouble but eventually he turned around and started thinking of others and then he got out of trouble and I compared that to how God expects us to tithe and give to his kingdom. The moral, unless you want to end up frozen in carbonite sitting in Jabba's palace you better pay your tithes. :)

    Glad to have you with us!

    Question: Do you go by Lancil or by Lance?

    (And holler if you don't like being addressed by your real name on our boards. I prefer doing this because it's much more personal, especially since most of us have met in person.)

    Ah, Lance- we'll get along just fine...

    I, too am a comic collector (lost count MANY years ago), big fan of Buffy and the first Highlander (there can be only ONE!), and Smallville. I'm also a big Batman fan (although I could've done without the last couple bat-flicks!), and I dig 'Stargate', 'Enterprise', and any of those home improvement shows- even though you couldn't tell it by the look of my house!

    Hope to see you at our upcoming get-togethers!

    Lin

    Oh- I live not too far from the Bookstar on Poplar, and actually got to do a booksigning there last year for 'Ramblings With Redde: Why My Life Is Like A Bad 'B' Flick'- I did the illustrations. I saw ANH at the Whitehaven Cinema when I was about 10-11, ESB at the Park theater down the street from the Polar one, and ROTJ at the Mall Of Memphis.

    I'm a spider-man fan myself. Have something like 300-400 spiderman comics alone. Green Lantern has always been my fave DC because GReen is my fave color and he just looks so cool.

    I was a big Spidey and Batman fan as a kid- the Adam West show and animated Spiderman cartoons were on WAY back then. I've still got the Adam West looking figure from my 3rd birthday cake- along with a few rooms full of other guanno. If I ever figure out how to post some pick with a post I'll show you some of it. Lots, of Spidey, X-Men, and Hulk stuff, too. Most of that and the majority of my Star Wars stuff is packed away. Now Sal- he's got a Star Wars stash!

    I dig GL, but red more of the Flash and Batman as a kid. I got to meet Joe Staton at the last fantasy con and got him to sign some Huntress and GL books for me- great guy.

    Eh, Christmas and Holloween I guess. They'll be fun again when I have kids.

    Misc:
    Um...not sure what else people would want to know about me. I'm pretty open so feel free to ask or talk to me on one of the three IM things I'm on (AIM, Yahoo, and MSN). i guess from looking at the previous posts I could talk a bit about my church background for those interested. I started out Assemblies of God then I went to a Church of God University, but I don't really like denominations so I don't consider myself a part of either or (even though I may be a Youth Pastor for an AG church soon hopefully). When people ask me I just tell them I'm not denominational. Then I have to explain how being not denominational is different than being non-denom simply because, dispite the name, non-denom is actually considered a denomination. Ironic isn't it? :D
