Welcome Virant to JediDefender!  Sorry you're an alcoholic though... you should try to get that taken care of.  You'll have an awesome time here, so enjoy yourself.  Again, welcome to the club.

Uh-oh...  Scott (OCB) is not going to like this little development...   :'(

He had Carrie all to himself over here.   8)  But now there's some competition in town!   :o

Well, regardless of which of you fellas wins Carrie's heart, a big welcome aboard is still due Virex here.  Glad to have you at JD V!  I'm sure you'll recognize most of the faces around here, so kick your feet up, relax, and enjoy the place (and do some posting while you're at it!)...  Let us know if there's anything we can do to enhance your viewing pleasure!

Plenty of alchies here too, so you should fit right in.  Just make your way over to the bar, and you'll find a great support group for your little drinking problem.   ;)

Good to have ya' here!

Hi.  My name's Virex, and I'm an alcoholic.

Admitting you have a problem is always the first step toward recovery. (Assuming one gives a crap about recovering.)

Welcome aboard, enjoy your stay!
Post sober.

Thanks!  I knew that you would get it, which was partially why I chose it.  Who cares if anyone else gets it or not, huh?  :D  Thanks for the invite, Scott.

A little bit about me, if you will:

Born of humble parentage in November, 1975, Virex was very interested in the toys and clothes of his big sister during his childhood

Nah.  That's not gonna work.   :D  

My name's Matt Birchall, and I've been a member of various Star Wars collecting communities on the 'net for about the past six years, mostly as "Virex" over the past couple, although you might know me as "Jeff" in several chat rooms, or as a certain, red-haired supporting character from a seventies sitcom over at Rebelscum.  ;)

(Some Virex trivia for you:  In addition to the alcoholism, I've also got a raging case of schizophrenia, which might explain all of the name-changes.  That silliness will not be carrying over here, I assure you.)

I'm more of a dormant Star Wars fan and collector now, than I used to be, so rarely will you see me venturing outside of the "miscellaneous" forums, such as Watto's Junkyard.  I just like the community, I guess, and while I keep up with all the latest Star Wars and collecting news, I don't feel an urge to comment on it anymore, really.  My interests are more in things like music and movies lately, so that's what I tend to comment on.

Anyway, gang, thanks again for having me.

So you're the freaking mystery man "Jeff"!!!   :o  Geez, we were quite curious about you that one night we stumbled upon you hanging out alone in our chatroom last month!  Glad the mystery's finally been solved!  I still tried to pry it out of you a few more times at the RS chats after that, but you still wouldn't spill the beans - it was driving me just a little bit bonkers!

Feel free to be as silly as you want with the name changes here though.  I always liked the Squints one myself.  Just please don't steal mine when I'm not paying attention...   :P  (just teasin' you, that was sorta funny considering who it was done to)...

Anyways, glad to have you to further liven up the place, if but only in Watto's...   8)

BTW, love the signature!   ;D  Mind blowing that announcement was...

Urp.  

Greetings 'Jeff'.  

Uh, Matt, I remember that chat.  Is there anything I need to apologize for?

Now that we've got two Matt's (actually 3 with FishEyedLouie who goes by Matthew), I'm not sure if you're talking to me or Virex here, Brent.  Regardless, knowing you Mr. Potty Mouth, I'm sure you said something you should apologize for.  So get to it!

In my frustration of your mysterious identity, I may have also, not sure...  If I did Virex/Matt/Jeff/Squints/etc.  Sorry!  Hopefully we can do that chat room thang again sometime - the right way this time...   8)

OK, at this point, you're Matt, they're Matthew and Virex.  

I remembered what I said in the chat.  Just trying to get 'Jeff's attention, though it didn't work.  Regardless 'Jeff', sorry.  

Not going to repeat it here.  Ahem. ;)

Eddie swears this was not about Kurt Cobain, I think the lyrics speak volumes...

Vacate is the word...vengeance has no place on me or her
Cannot find the comfort in this world
Artificial tear...vessel stabbed...next up, volunteers
Vulnerable, wisdom can't adhere...

A truant finds home...and I wish to hold on...
But there's a trapdoor in the sun...immortality...

As privileged as a whore...victims in demand for public show
Swept out through the cracks beneath the door
Holier than thou, how?
Surrendered...executed anyhow
Scrawl dissolved, cigar box on the floor...

A truant finds home...and I wish to hold on, too...
But saw the trapdoor in the sun...

Immortality...
I cannot stop the thought...I'm running in the dark...
Coming up a which way sign...all good truants must decide...
Oh, stripped and sold, mom...auctioned forearm...
And whiskers in the sink...
Truants move on...cannot stay long
Some die just to live...
