    To the vast crowds of new people that I haven't greeted over the last few months, I'd like to give each and every one of you a very personal , whoever you are.

    Welcome to the FORT Pankaren, Duxxy, and Ariel! It's a great place to be (and addictive)!

    Pankaren: We're very similar. I have 7 nieces and nephews and am also single. Oh, but I'm not a statistician, oh...and I'm 32, not 28...oh, and I don't work at Barnes and Noble, but I go there every weekend, does that count? Welcome!

    Ariel: Welcome to the FORT! Clay Aiken fans are very welcome here, you'll see yourself in the Clay threads.

    Duxxy: I keep wanting to say "Duxxy Daycare", it has a nice ring to it. Yes, John's interviews are fantastic, it's one of the reasons I found this place, as well as some recaps from other FORTer's, like Lobeck's etc. Glad you're here!

    Oh, and welcome, Boredouttamymind!

    EmmaNZ: wow, New Zealand sure has a lot of AI fans (I feel like inserting, "wow, David Hasselhoff is big in Germany" - if anyone knows that reference). Anyhow, welcome! The Amazing Race is a fantastic show, glad you're a fan.

    Welcome Merritt!

    And welcome to anyone else I've forgotten (or can't see the text of below this post)!

    Name: Anna
    Age: 22

    Location: raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, have lived in Chicago 6 years for school (graduate with my Master's from Northwestern University on Friday and I got my BS here too), in the process of relocating to Philadelphia for grad school (University of Pennsylvania).

    Occupation: Grad Student and Social Worker

    Interests: reading, spending time with my family, reading, getting into debates with people, reading, roller blading, and did I mention reading...

    Marital Status: Married almost four years (anniversary on July 1st), four step-kids (four boys age 14, 12, 11, and 6), and one daughter on the way (Janae Ann), which will be the first child physically my own.
    Pets: none that live with us, but I still consider my parents' pets mine, even though I moved out at 16 for college (They have two cats and had a dog until a couple years back when she had to be put to sleep).

    Reality Shows I Watch: TAR, Survivor, Fame, Big Brother, the Mole, American Idol, and I'll pretty much give anything a chance other than those dating shows, which make me

    Congratulations Ana! Whoo hoo!

    And this can't be a first introduction, right? It's a re-introduction?

    Question: How do you fit it all in? You've got to be crazy busy!!

    Thanks for the congrats! It's more of a "I just discovered this thread, so I figured I would post something, even though I'm sure most of the people visiting this thread have either talked to me or read some of my posts..."

    I'm usually really busy, because I was working full-time and going to school full-time and trying to complete my thesis, but I'm done now and I'm just taking some time off. I'm just working some part-time hours for DCFS to meet with former clients and help train my replacement, but other than that I figured I deserve a little time off. However, I am feeling so guilty for taking time off, because I'm usually such a work-a-holic...

    Well, this is officially the first time I've seen somebody admit to watching Are You Hot? I'm disturbed to actually encounter one...

    That makes it two...I'm starting to get scared...

    First of all, I've been here for about a two weeks, and I haven't even introduced myself.. I've just been hiding in a dark corner, and eavesdropping on all the conversations... It's been great... so here I am...

    name: Karen
    age: 22
    origin: Canada

    Extras: (is there a format to this?)
    I'm working full time in a school as an assistant librarian (those brats!! j/k i love the little guys...really, i do). I do a lot of shelving books and reading... not to mention, reading on FORT when i'm not busy with the kids... I've been to college for about a year, and i just took a general program, I don't really have a goal or career in mind.. just to live peacefully within myself... at home, i love to watch TV.. and i would love to be on the net all evening, if only i could get the net... lol... My favorite is and always will be Clay.. just to say the least.. All i can say is that he touched my heart and soften it, he changed me for the better, i haven't really noticed that i changed, but i have... he has made such a difference in all our lives,... i wish he knew that... i hope all this fanbase doesn't scare him...

    Ok, i decided that's enough... if anyone wants to know more... just ask me... i can answer any question, no problem...

    Later, gang
