Oh man, I remember the good old days of benching twice my weight.

So what was it like getting shot? I had a gun pulled on me, but luckily the [insert expletive] never pulled the trigger.

1) I was born 15 days before the Jonestown mass suicide of 914 people, 14 days before the unsolved murder case of 3 teens and a 20 year old at a Burger Chef in Speedway Indiana
1a) I share a birthday (not year though) with Dennis Miller

2) I will finish my second degree in December. 1st was in Information Systems, this in Marketing

4) In less than 10 minutes I'll be watching Chapter 8 of the Clone Wars cartoon

5) The most recent item I won on eBay was a Clone Wars cartoon banner

6) I love beer of all varieties, especially Tsing Tao, Corona and Guiness (not together though)

7) On more than one occasion, I've had so much to drink I was scared I would die
7a) On many of those occasions, I have slept in a shower stall in a college dorn

8) I've never had any injuries that warranted a night or more stay in a hospital

9) I'm afraid of:
Any animal that isn't a flightless fur covered mammal (not sure about the noble platypi with that funky bill of theirs)
Hospitals
Large groups of people (especially strangers)
Being poor
Being lonely
The dark
Quiet (I always have to have some sort of background noise, even to be able to sleep)
Many other things, too many things too list and think of at the moment

10)  Among other jobs, Im a substitute teacher

  • I lived in Seoul, South Korea for 3 years when I was in high school (my dad was on business there as an offshore manufacturing director).  Spent 10th - 12th grade there (graduated there) at Seoul Foreign School, before returning back home to So Cal.  Got voted Best Athlete and Most Rowdy my senior year too!  :P   Can still read and write Korean, but can't speak it nearly as well as when I lived there.

  • I've cracked my noggin open on FIVE separate occasions, all requiring stitches...   ::)
  • I spent NINE years in college up in Santa Barbara...  What can I say?  Too many distractions there, and not enough focus on my part!  But hey, at least I met my wife there, and developed some serious beach volleyball and beer drinking skills!   8)

  • Aside from anything and everything Star Wars, I also collect Greatest Hits CDs (1950's to present), DVDs, coins (just U.S.), baseball cards (1955 to 1992), HO model railroading stuff, and other random and less exciting oddities...
  • I've gained 58 pounds over the past 6 years.   :o  :'(

  • Patty and I have been married 2 1/2 years, and been together for 7 years, but have NO plans of ever having kids.
  • Have traveled extensively throughout Asia, Europe, Australia, and North America.
  • Avid sports fan my entire life (both watching and playing).  My teams: Lakers, Raiders, Rams, Dodgers, Angels, L.A. Kings, Ducks, Clippers  :-[, UCLA, and Anna Kournikova  ;D.
  • Obsessive compulsive carded and loose completist and die-hard Star Wars collector.  (but you guys already knew that  ;))
  • Vanilla Ice copied my hairdo back in the day.  (wait 'til you guys see one of the real good pictures of my once famous "doo")

  • My favorite place in the world is Las Vegas!  Love the bright lights, late hours, gambling, free drinks, shows, spectacles, and all around glitz and glamour!   8)

  • Was a rabid Christie Brinkley fan all throughout my youth.  Had a very large desk with a removable glass top, that I had a HUGE collage of her pictures under (no wonder I could never get any work done in high school).  Kept a scrapbook of her too!  Those Total Fitness Gym commercials still make me very horny for her...   :D

Intriguing. I've never considered Anna Kournikova a team before now. How might one try out for that team?  I wouldn't mind being on it. ;)

I'm new here, but some people might recognize my stupid-ass name from Rebelscum and/or Galactic Hunter.  But this 12 point list can serve as an introduction to those people that don't know me.

1. I think Asajj Ventress is the best Star Wars action figure ever.

2. I love the band Tool.

3. I've been a vegan for the past 8 years.

4. I've been married for a little over five years to my former boss.

5. My former boss and I have two kids together--a four year old daughter named Lily and a five-and-a-half week old son named Zach.

6. I'm a lawyer and have no idea how I ended up as one, but I like it.

7. I take music very seriously, even though I can't play any instruments.  I'm an elitist when it comes to the bands I listen to and I will genuinely hate a person if he or she listens to crappy music.

8. I have two cats--Sadie and Sophie.

9. I suck at math...I can barely add.

10. I was an art major for my first year of college until I finally accepted the fact that I suck at that, too.

11. I once contracted a scorching case of scabies from a filthy Texaco gas station toilet in Guyana, South America.

12. I do not and will never own a microwave.

Hey Sprry!  Welcome to JD!  Sure do recognize the name.  Glad you decided to swing by and check out the action...  Starting with the 12-step program here is certainly a good way to say 'hey' to the gang!  Enjoy, and we look forward to seeing you around the boards here.

BTW, you got a real name?  We love to use those around here, ya' know.   ;)  Or Sprry will suffice, if you prefer...  I see you already discovered our newest gift to our members as well - the word "ass".  Looks like you'll fit right in...   ;)
