Well, I guess technically I'm still a newbie, since I've only been here for a week, so here goes.

The Stace is a nickname for my given name, Stacy. Feel free to address me by either!

I'm 22 and live in Charlotte, NC, with my husband and our two cats. I've been married for almost three years now. No children yet, but perhaps that'll change within the next year or two.

I was born in Iowa, but I've also lived in Florida, South Carolina, Minnesota, and now North Carolina. I still consider Minnesota home though.

I joined the Air Force in October 2001. After Basic Training, I spent 8 1/2 months in Biloxi, Mississippi learning the trade of Ground Radio Maintenance - basically, maintaining the radio systems used by the air traffic control tower and aircraft pilots for communication.

My first duty station was Seymour Johnson AFB in Goldsboro, NC. After I met my husband, and married him, I transferred down to Pope AFB in Fayetteville, NC, as hubby was part of the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg.

I just separated from the Air Force this past October, and right now, I'm an unemployed bum :mrgreen: Not quite sure what I want to do, though I'd eventually like to pursue a Bachelor's in English.

A few of my hobbies include scrapbooking, computer graphics, photography, and playing The Sims 2. Yes, I'm a total geek and proud of it!

NASCAR is the only sport I really follow...if you can't tell from my avatar, I'm a Kasey Kahne fan.

T.V. shows I watch regularly - The O.C., Smallville, Reunion (darn Fox for cancelling it on me! But it'll be on for a couple more weeks at least), My Name Is Earl, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, and Desperate Housewives.

But all of that isn't really what you're here to learn, is it? You want to know my political stance....

I consider myself liberal/Democratic, as noted in my profile and all, but just to make one thing clear: I am not registered as a Democrat. I keep myself unaffiliated in that respect - my views tend to lean to the left, but every now and then I sway right.

Anyway, I suppose that's me in a pretty large nutshell....by all means, feel free to ask me anything. I consider myself a pretty friendly, easy going/laid back sort of person, and I'm always open to new ideas. I like to use humor and sarcasm a lot, so if you're not sure if I'm being serious about something, all you've got to do is ask....general guideline would be to assume that I'm not aiming to offend anyone though.

If you've made it this far, thanks for reading, and I'll see you around the forums!

So if you are so new here... and you have that little icon underneath your name... declaring you as an esteemed member (silver)...

One can only assume there is an aspect of cronyism at work here.

What else would signify such?

I seperated from the air force as an officer and an esteemed scientist. This has not been to any political advantage to me in terms of credibility. I seem to be a smart guy but I fail to recognize the difference.

Does it have something to do with financial contribution?

Good. I was beginning to worry. That seems logical.. I could understand such a concept...

Money does make the world go round. Heck I might even have a few bucks to lend.. you never know.

There is always room for jurisprudence.

;)


BTW Stace sorry to expose this.... it is only a virtue of anyone whom may be concerned to be inquisitive about the matter.

Oh, no problem. I don't mind anyone knowing that I supported the site monetarily. I tend to do that for things I believe serve a good cause and/or purpose.

Besides, it's only $10 a year, hardly breaking the bank, even for a broke bum like me :mrgreen:

I suppose I was oblivious to this option. I remember Vauge mentioning something about it.... but I never thought twice.

I apologize if I seemed a bit bold (I already told you I was bold didn't I?).

Geez don't I feel like the moron now. Yes, I called myself a moron!

Aw, it's ok, I still like ya....

I mean, I'm a self proclaimed geek, and there's at least two people on here that I'm pretty sure think I'm a moron, but...eh. Whatever. That's just 'cause I'm on the "wrong" side of the issues.

It's ok to be on the "wrong" side of the issues - from your point of view I fit that description well.

I am me and *sniff* I am okay.

Ok, gotta question to ask ...

What is difference between geek, nerd, dork?
I thought I had it down, but daughter keeps correcting me. lol

geek - technical

nerd - social

dork - overall(combination)

I am a computer geek, but I am, in no sense, a nerd...
