ELEVENTH IN LINE
About This Blog
A blog about my life, universe, etc. At any given time you might find something endlessly interesting or just me ruminating on something else, which no one (not even myself) finds interesting. That's the way blogs go, I suppose. Anyway, I was eleventh in line, and you weren't. Hah!

About My Family
My mom is a lawyer in Pickerington; my stepdad and dad are computer guys, and my stepmom (who works with my dad) is an engineer. My sisters are, in order of age, a photographer, an artist, and a person too young to have her own website. My brothers are, in order of age, living up north, and again, a person too young to have a website. At some point soon I'll be collecting links for my aunts, uncle, and cousins. ^_^

Getting your money's worth... Wow. So I didn't actually intend to drive people to the blog from that comment at Times & Seasons. Mostly I was hoping to get included on their blogroll -- I feel quite empowered by my inclusion on Millenial Star, you see.
Which is why there's hardly anything recent here. Or, rather, why I feel bad about said same lack of new stuff.
So! To solve this, let me give you Part I of my Grand Theory of Star Wars Line Motivation.
Yes, that's right. Thanks to my self-imposed absence from LUN (I cannot overstate this enough: don't post angry -- or sad, for that matter) I've had all kinds of time to think about stuff. Including that all-pressing question: why on earth am I doing this crazy thing?
Today I'll give the list. And in the coming days, I'll explain it. Woohoo!
Note: the list is in a combination of "relevance" and "truthfulness" orders. That is, if I were to give each reason a score from 1 to 10 (how relevant is the statement to my participation, how truthful is the statement), a combined score could be assigned, and the reasons ranked on that basis. No, I didn't actually score them; I have a bad enough "obsessive compulsive nutty person" reputation as it is.
1. I said I'd do it.
2. I don't back down from a challenge.
3. I need more geeky "war stories."
4. My friends are, for the most part, in Southern California.
5. I grew up in CA; it's in my blood (as is going to see important movies on Hollywood Blvd.)
6. It's one of those once-in-a-lifetime things.
7. It's going to be fun!
8. I might very well meet someone famous, or get on TV for a few more seconds -- and I'm all about the celebrity thing.
9. I like Star Wars!
10. I really enjoy camping, sleeping under stars in tents, etc.
11. Last time was so gosh-darned awesome I just had to do it one last time.
12. I am a huge Carpenters groupie, and could not pass up the opportunity to sit in front of their star for six weeks.
Draw your own conclusions from the above. ^_^
