Hello everyone
« on: August 4, 2005, 01:55 PM »
Hello -- I am brand new so please have patience with me.  I am so excited to be joining your forum -- it looks like its going to be a lot of fun.  I am looking forward to having a place to discuss opinions/ideas.  I'm probably just going to lurk around for a while until I figure some things out.  I've been a fan since ANH came out.  Wasn't such a big fan of the PT but they are definately growing on me -- especially since our little boy is starting to get into the saga.  I'm a stay at home mother of 2 and I love it.  Can't wait to get started! 8)

Welcome to JD, Tamidala!  Is it Tami, in the real world?  Glad to have another lady in the house, to keep us fellas in line, and offer a slightly different perspective than the usual meatheads around here! :P  So what type of stuff do you collect?

Looking forward to chatting with you around the joint here.  Drop any of the staff a line if you have any questions or comments about anything.  We're here to serve...  Enjoy!

- Matt

I hope that you enjoy your stay around these parts, and as Matt said, if you've got any questions feel free to ask any of the staff members for help!

Welcome aboard ship...  Have fun, and any questions or comments just ask or whatever.

Don't worry about joining in either, just have fun.

Glad to have you here, Tamidala!  Make yourself comfortable and lurk about until you're ready to jump into the fun. 

So you've been a fan since ANH, excellent.  What kind of lines are into collecting?

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!  I'm glad to be here.  Actually, its Tracy in the real world.  T. Amidala -- get it? :)  I'm not really into collecting, just posting -- did I post on the wrong forum -- sorry ???

Nice to meet you, Tracy.

No, not at all!  This is the perfect spot to introduce yourself to the folks here at JD.  Most of us are hardcore Star Wars collectors here, so that's often the first question that pops out of our mouths when we meet new people.  :P

But as we've recently learned, we have a few "non-collectors" who roam these parts as well, so kick up your feet, make yourself at home, and enjoy...

No problem whatsoever!  Like Matt said, I'm a collecting nut, so it's usually my focus. 

Enjoy!

Thanks a lot guys -- I love the warm welcome -- it is so refreshing.  I do have a few things from my youth -- mostly glasses, magazines and toothbrushes from the OT -- my husband has a bunch of toys that he's trying to dig up for our son -- nothing hardcore though!  A couple of TIE fighters, X-wings and a Falcon we plan to hang from his ceiling.

Welcome to the boards....forego the lurking and jump right into the conversations!
