    Yeah, so I have been coming here for some little time now and just wondered what kinda general info you folks would be kind enough to share about yourselves with a rookie to this board???
    Age group???
    What brought you here???
    Anything else???
    I like to know a LITTLE about who I converse with out there!!!
    I'm dreading my last year before I turn 30... And crashing into my past by collecting Muppet action figures. I couldn't tell you very many skits, nor could I tell you what happened in any specific episode, but these characters are the love of my life and I have to have em all. Heck, I'll probably wind up recording my own episodes once I have enough sets built.
    A hobby of mine is sculpting so I am currently trying to use that to make custom figs of unprecidented quality (if anyone has any GREAT pics of Astoria, please send em over cause I'm having trouble with her dress and hat over here-YES, I bought an extra Statler to make Astoria) at least unprecidented in my neighborhood!!!
    Favorite Muppet is probably Gonzo or Lew Zealand, least favorite has to be Piggy. I'd take every single Muppet and even Elmo before Piggy.

    Hello :D
    I'm 17.
    I'm here because I like Muppets, and that's pretty much it.
    I'm also crazy go nuts.

    I like slash. No, not the guy from Guns 'n' Roses (that's a good band, though). I mean the fanfiction. I like KiSS. No, not the band, (I haven't heard any of their music, actually) :o I mean the internet paper dolls. I like The Ring. No, not Sauron's ring of power, I mean the movie "The Ring". No wait, I take that back, I like Sauron's ring. My preciousss...

    My fave Muppet is Floyd *drools on keyboard, quickly wipes it up before the keyboard malfunctions, repeats to herself "He's Janice's, he's Janice's..."*, and least fave... um... Elmo, but only when I have to watch a lot of him. He's okay in small doses... in the background... and not talking. Like in Muppet Family Christmas.

    Personally, I like Piggy. I didn't when I was younger because she seemed so snobby, but I now appreciate her for her determination. I think Piggy is like SNL's The Mango. It doesn't matter how you feel about her at first, but it's very possible for her to do that one thing to you, that one thing that absolutely makes you fall in love with her, whether you're male, female, heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, transexual, transgendered, transvestite, pedophile, necropheliac, okay, I'm going off topic, anyways, that's just my crazy go nuts opinion. For me, it was getting FM Piggy and the Swine Trek. Piiiink...

    Random facts about me:
    I love musical theater (but only the good musicals!)
    I want to teach high school history :crazy:
    My colleges mascot was the mighty banana slug
    Clay Aiken frightens me

    Old enough to know better!

    I was searching the web for anything Janice. I found this site, and then I found Byron's. This came as quite a relief - I wasn't alone!...I was beginning to think I was going a little strange in the head. Now...I'm sure of it, but at least I'm in good company :-D

    There's a story involving Byron and a hot-tub that no-one will tell me...

    A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing...

    Manda:-D Well-Known Member

    My name is Manda, and I am a very old, (at least, that's how I feel), 18. I've loved the Muppets ever since I was REEEEEEEEEAAAAAAALLY little, and I found this site at around 15 looking for Muppet stuff, (mainly song lyrics), but didn't sign up here until after VMX aired. I'm very fond of Rowlf & Robin, (as you'll be hearing FOREVER and EVER, from now on), and Red Fraggle is my idol. I am a self-proclaimed student of animation. I have a deep love of my Catholic faith, as well as a great interest in apologetics. I love music, and am positively obsessed w/writing. I dream of becoming either a published author, or writing for the Muppets. I have incredibly eclectic tastes, everything from blues music to Japanese kung fu films. I collect teddy bears. I speak French. I don't have a least favorite Muppet. I love them all....Even Elmo.

    Oh, yeah, and I also happen to be nuts. :D

    Why I came here: Looking for someone selling Muppet Babies comics. I've come here a number of times within the past few years, but never checked out the forums, and figured signing up here might help me in my search. But everyone here is so nice, and it reminded me that I loved puppets :)

    Age group??? 19 in about a month
    What brought you here??? Brute force... jk. I came after following MC for quite some time but never visited the forum.
    Anything else??? I'm wearing a blue shirt right now. Computer dictionaries can be quite entertaining.
    Favorite Muppet Kermit, since sometimes I sort of act just like he does.

    I'll shock you and tell you that I'm 46 with a tatoo. Now you'll think I'm fat, have a lit cigarette hanging out of my mouth at all times, and wear black leather chaps while cavorting with ****'s Angels every weekend. Got here via my son who is a puppeteer/builder/Muppetnut and who found MC while surfing around. I tend to get going on serious/social/cultural issues but I think I'm appreciated in the Fun and Games section of the forum.

    Nah, you look like Zoot. :cool:

    Beebers Well-Known Member

    I'll be darned, THAT'S IT. It's not easy being blue-green. Now everybody knows what I look like.

    I've missed youz guys.

  15. Whatever

    Whatever Well-Known Member

    Where've you been? I thought you disappeared because the new board hurt your eyes.
  16. Beebers

    Beebers Well-Known Member

    That is korrect, it kills my eyes. But I miss it, and therefore show up now and then and stay on till my head explodes. Then I spend several weeks in head-reassembly so I can come on and do it all over again. This is all pretty much true. Nice to be missed, though.

    Also, FISHNWOLFE is dealing with some fairly serious sudden health challenges so we're rather preoccupied right now, I came on tonight to see everyone and cheer up and it was zee right thing to do, I'm more cheerful now for sure.

    Oh, jedi, I apologize, we haven't been in proper touch with people about this. It's too much to tell here, I promise I'll e-mail you tomorrow.

    Yeah, I hope Kev's not too poorly as well. When our conversations on AIM kinda dropped off it got me wondering, and I just got turned on to this thread. If you could, e-mail me as well please (CC the message to Matt (jediX) or something if it's just a generic message). I would very much like to know what is up with his condition at present. Thanks so very much, and tell him to get well for me...
