    Hi, I have been a member since Sept. of 03 and never got around to a formal introduction, I apologize, no disrespect was intended.
    My name is Ray, I live in the City of Philadelphia Pa. I am a 40 year old father of 3, I have been married to my soul mate for 16 years, and I am more in love with her now than I was 16 years ago. ( She is a dead ringer of Marisa Tomei, and on several occasions people have stopped us on the street and inquired if she was really Marisa, that always gives us a chuckle when that happens
    My nickname is Roz and it has been as far back as I can remember (Hence my screen name). I am an IT professional, and started in the field in 1980 during its infancy. Unlike most FORT Members, I don't really consider myself a fan of Reality TV. I am a fan of Survivor, but I can see the lure of Reality TV to a lot of folks. Due to my hectic schedule, with the exception of a Flyers or Eagles game, the only thing I truely watch is Survivor. I really enjoy watching the interpersonal relationship's that develop between the Survivors. As silly as it sounds, I even sent a video application for S3, obviously I wasn't chosen (Bummer!), but I thought I would give it a shot anyway. I started reading this board about a year ago, and enjoyed what I saw, the writers are very talented, the mods keep everything in sync, and John runs a tight ship, I like and respect all 3 factors, that's why I joined. So, thank you for allowing me to join in the chat here.

    Much respect......Roz

    Welcome, Roz! Glad you found a chance to introduce yourself, and too bad you weren't chosen for S3...but at least you didn't have to leave Marisa for 2 months

    I'll give it a shot...

    Name: Speedbump

    Location: newly moved to Cape Cod, formally of Pennsylvania

    Sex: yes please!..oops...Male

    Age: 30

    Occupation: Military/ 3 years in the Army and 9 years (and still goin) in the US Coast Guard

    Marital Staus: single--hoping to change that, havn't found someone who will watch reality t.v. with me yet

    Favorite Reality TV: Survivor, Bachelor/ B'Rette, Joe Millionaire, Average Joe, Love Cruise (remember that one?), older Real World and Road Rules, Ok, Ok, I watch just about any reality t.v.

    Other Fav Shows: Huge Alias fan, CSI, Friends, college football (Penn State) and NFL (go Steeler's!)

    Outdoor and Recreational Activities: hiking, skiing, mountain biking, pool, going to the beach, drive-ins and golf, Spinning

    How I found this site: I was on Fox.com message boards for Joe Millionaire2 and there was a link here. Havn't been anywhere else since. This site is great, with a ton of personality and is run/ moderated very well.

    I just recently came off of 7 years of sea duty so I have much more time to slow down and enjoy the guilty pleasure's in life. Most of the ships I was stationed on had satellite tv, so we would all gather around and watch the reality shows (it was a great escape from our "real world" and daily grind). The first reality show I saw (aside from Real World) was Survivor and Love Cruise. It's been all downhill from there. I never realized how much reality tv I watched. I'm always so active outside so it never occured to me that I have so many favorite shows. I use my VCR a lot and usually watch the shows just before bed (except for finale's, I watch them at the regular time).

    Thanks for all the welcome's. It's nice to meet people with the same interest's. I look forward to meeting all 15,000 of you.
