    There's a fair few of us floating around the place, but we all come from different places and it's difficult to get to know your fellow poster. So if you're from Australia or New Zealand (or Guam, if they ever show up :p) tell us a bit about yourself here.

    Feel free to add anything else you want to share with us. :)

    Name: Jess

    State/country: NSW, Australia

    Age: 17

    Occupation: In last yr of highschool

    Marital status: Well, too young to be married, but I do have a boyfriend

    Physical description: I'm about 5ft6 apparently, long red-brown hair, brown eyes

    Favourite SW movie: Return of the Jedi.

    Favourite non-SW movie: LotR, Amelie, Princess Bride, Swing just to name a few

    Favourite food: Chocolate

    Why did you choose your user name? In yr7 Detonating-Rabbit came up with the name "messicat" for me, and it stuck, and as this is a SW board I decided to add "kenobi" to the end of it, being a biiiig Obi-Wan fan (Ewan McGregor = [face_love] ) It's all in lowercase for a reason. I refuse to accept it any other way.

    How long have you been a Star Wars fan? Since I asked my mum in an electronics store what SW was and she said she was a bad parent for not showing me sooner, sometime in about 96 we hired dodgy copies from the local video store and I was instantly hooked.

    Why did you choose your user name? I'd just finished reading the Wraith Squadron novels, and was enamoured with the "General Kargin" persona created for a spcial operation, so I altered the first letter. Nowadays, on other boards, I go by Jagdverband or a slight variation thereof.

    Age: 21.

    Occupation: Student (and working casually in retail).

    Marital status: Hey, c'mon, I'm only 21! ;)

    Physical description: About 5'7 (I think!), dark hair, brown eyes, and too slim for my liking. Me when I'm being a SW geek. Me when I'm not being a geek.

    Favourite SW movie: The Empire Strikes Back.

    Favourite non-SW movie: I've never had a satisfying answer for this question. Movies that stand out in my mind are Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Weird Science, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Dogma, Pulp Fiction, and Fellowship Of The Ring.

    Favourite food: Pizza, I guess. Anything but anchovies.

    Why did you choose your user name? I chose it back when I first registered on the UBB JC forums (back in my TPM spoiler days). I wanted something that was a spin on a SW character's name, something that fans would get. Took me a while to figure out that a lot of the people on the forum didn't know what a barramundi was.

    How long have you been a Star Wars fan? Since 97. Special edition hype got me into it.
