    What brought me here: My love for Muppets. What else? =)

    Anything else:
    I love to draw. I love to write. As a little girl, I wanted to be a muppeteer. Not sure where the ambition for that went to, but my love for the muppets never wavered, particularly my love of Fraggle Rock.
    I currently own the first three seasons of Fraggle Rock on DVD and eagerly await the final season, the movie, and possibly the animated series.
    I am currently in the process of writing a Fraggle fanfic titled "The Fraggle From Outer Space". Not sure if I'll ever post it on here, but I am writing it.

    Oops, now I've written an eyefull. Pardon me. ;P

    :D Of course we are all muppet fans here, and most of us are fraggle fans, but I'm
    :excited: that there's someone here who's as extatic about Fraggle Rock as I am, yaaay!

    Rabbit, I love your bio! And it was nice of you to share it. :)

    I just realised that I have been a member for over 3 years now and I haven't posted my story in this thread! Which is a shame, I'm sure. (And Rabbit, you thought your delay was bad!) It's not the most interesting one but here goes!

    On MC I go by Pepper, Peps, Peppi, Vanilla Pepsi, or whatever else you want to call me, but NOT MrsP! It makes me sound much older than I am. :p However if you do call me that I will not get bad at you! So please don't be scared. :p

    I'm from central Canada and I love my country, and I'm never shy to blab about it to anyone who will listen! (I'm sure many of you know this firsthand... Sorry you guys!)

    I'm a musicky, artsy, crazy, loudsy, funsy, and at the current moment very tiredsy person! And I love to share that with all the other wacky personalities here.

    I joined MC three years ago, back when I was young and innocent, back before I knew what muffining was... before even the invention of Ziffels! I've stuck around so long because everyone on the forum is just fantastic. I have learned so much about the craft of puppetry by lurking and reading the posts in the Puppetry section and seeing all of your amazing building and performing talents. I've tried to stay as far away from the terrifying fanfic section as possible, but I've been close enough to know how many talented writers choose to share their talents here. But mostly I know that even though that there will always be differing opinions on the boards, when it comes down to it, we are all muppet fans and share the same passion and (sometimes unexpectedly obsessive) fandom and I think it's great that we have such a positive community in which to celebrate this.

    Well I've been a fan of The Muppets pretty much my whole life. It started with a baby Fozzie bathtub doll, then there was watching Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, followed by renting videos of Muppet movies and such, looking for dolls of my favorite Muppets and the rest is history of most other Muppet fans. Now here I am with my own belief in the goodness of people, optimism and my own Puppet Troupe!

    Introduction

    I’m 32, been married to my husband for 11 years. We have 3 kids, ages 9, 6 and 4. I’m FINALLY returning to school to be a history major. I live in Sicily.

    I love to write, sketch, do all kinds of crafts, sew, gardening, explore just about anywhere…I love history, building things, taking things apart…I love to ride my motorcycle and am lucky enough to find a riding group full of excellent people to explore the island with…I like learning new things and seeing new places.

    I like the Muppets (well, duh! ), playing with legos, catching toads (and letting them go, of course!:halo:) and seeing the world through the eyes of my kids. Love the theatre, worked backstage way back in high school and never shook the desire to do it again.

    My youngest starts pre-school next year which means I’ll return to work soon, after about 6 years as a house wife…so I am afraid of doing that…but also excited at the prospect of new opportunities. :o

    So far this forum seems like a really great place to be, so many people have similar interests and are quite friendly...And the muppet smileys are great!:)

    I really love building things and taking them apart also!:)

    Thank you! Now all I have to do is figure out what I want to be when I grow up, LOL! (like growing up will ever happen!)

    I know what you mean about deciding. It seems like it can take longer than you think it should, somtimes.:p

    JJandJanice Active Member

    Hey everyone I'm JJ and I'll do a quick mini-bio, some random things I guess.

    I'm 23 and about to go back to school where I'll be studying theater arts and probably music. I've been into music since I was 14, as I play the guitar and piano as my top two, but I also do hermonica and a little banjo, plus I want to buy a set of congas.

    I'm also into writing stories and screen writing. A lot of my stories do have a need for puppetry which is also something I'm very interested in, cause of course Jim Henson is a huge part of my life. I also love making my friends laugh which I've been told many times that I'm really good at, so really I'm just someone who loves to entertain people.

    Another hobby of mine is collecting which I tend to collect a lot of Muppet stuff to the point that people are amazed whenever they walk into my room. I plan on taking pictures of my collection as it is now. I also collect Nightmare Before Christmas and kinda starting a collection of Disney pins, just cause I thought it might be fun.

    Some of my favorite tv shows are Simpsons, South Park and of course anything Muppets. I'm also a huge Batman fan and collect comics mostly of Batman.

    I love a ton of movies and music.

    I've been told that I have a nice smile and I've been told a few times I'm pretty good looking. Right now though I'm trying to lose weight, which is a little hard for me.

    When I consider someone a friend there is almost nothing I won't do for them.

    Right now I'm single and going though this kind of hard thing cause I like someone but it's hard to tell if they feel the same, cause in some ways it seems like she is somewhat playing a game. There are times when she does or says something that makes me feel really good, but maybe I'm getting a little personal, it's a little tough for me when it comes to this though.

    Well I guess that's enough about me, all I can really say is that I have some big dreams, but I do believe that I'm going places and really I just want to do somethings that will make people think, well I don't know, that I'm worth wild.

    Quesal Active Member

    Well JJ,

    Take it from a theatre guy who's been there; just be a friend and if she's interested in becoming something, she'll come to you. And if you don't feel like waiting, just tell her how you feel and no matter what her response is, you can take pride in knowing that you got a answer to the question you were asking yourself. Ya see what I'm sayin'?

    Yeah I see what you're saying, and it's totally true. It's just somewhat tough but you're right.

    Thanks Ilikemuppets

    It's been a while....

    Hi everyone. I just realized it's literally been years since I posted last.:o

    I finally finished school, I am offically a Graphic Designer (notice the caps...) and working in the field at a job I really love. My three girls are not so much girls anymore as two legal adults and one teenager. I'm also a grandma (makes me sound so much older when I say it out loud). My husband is in Iraq on a civilian contract for the rest of the year. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers please.:flirt:

    I've also picked up a new past time: riding my Harley Davidson. I also managed to find some images online of many of the muppets on bikes. Sweet! (check out the new avatar)

    Anyway, just wanted to say hello since it's been so long. Anxiously awaiting the release next week of Season 3, and also just started downloading Farscape from iTunes. I also shamelessly admit to getting my neighber at work hooked on the show;).

    Hugs to all,

    Deb

    I've been a poster here off and on since about 2003, I think-I don't post nearly as much as I used to, though I probably should, because the Muppets are often on my mind.

    I'm 20 years old, and I've been an admirer of the work of Jim Henson and his associates for as long as I can remember (even though I didn't watch Sesame Street much as a little kid because I was terrified of Placido Flamingo-I made up for it in later years).

    What else? Hmm...My main hobby is video tape collecting (which has become sort of a retro interest ever since DVD pretty much took over), on all three main formats of VCR-VHS, Betamax, and 8mm. I just today made a post in the thread about what makes me frown today...what makes me *smile* today is my family, the support of my friends (who I have put through so much), Mountain Dew, and the wall of videotapes that stand alongside my computer, which I just this week finished labeling (it took me six months, but it was well worth it). Other hobbies include studying local history (especially back in Cincinnati, where I grew up), music (playing and listening to), making films, and amusement parks. Unfortunately, I'm also a person with many demons that makes it hard for me to appreciate how beautiful life can be. I like to look back on my past and take on different perspectives of what has happened so I can accept those events and let them go.

    My favorite muppet is Grover, and don't have a least favorite-I find something to love in almost all of them (even Placido Flamingo who, while hilarious, still gives me the creeps after so many years).

    Hi everyone,

    It's ncie to meet up with you, and to know that I'm not the oldest muppet fan here. :halo: But I could be consider a bit nutty. Most of my online contacts call me Yva.

    Age: 37.

    What brought me here: My browser, I did a google search for Muppets because I was looking for some pictures, and found nothing, but I did find this forum. So, I stopped looking for pictures and started hanging out here. Now I've been here half a day, I love it, and feel quite at home here.

    Did I mention that I love it? Probably.

    I absolutely love Fraggle Rock! :coy: I am also a huge Chris de Burgh and Gene Wilder fan.

    Anything else: I am originally from the US, but moved to Germany almost 13 years ago to live. My husband of 13 years is a German citizen and I am not affiliated with the military (I get asked that a lot). I am bilingual, with English and German. I make and collect teddy bears, sing in a choir, and write. The avatar I use is my first hand sewn bear. His name is Kalle and he holds a special place in my heart.

    I guess that's it. I guess I'll share more as we go along. :insatiable:
