  1. Once upon a time, my daughter and I were shopping at the mall. We'd stopped in one of the many trendy women's clothes shops to look around. One of the mannequins was wearing very tight, shiny silver booty shorts - the kind worn mostly by prostitutes and strippers. My young daughter, who was maybe 15 at the time, told me they were Jentina pants. (Cue my motherly, out-of-touch confusion.) I replied, "no, dear - those are sucky sucky five dollar pants." Suddenly, I felt this warmth at the back of my neck and turned to see this middle-aged Oriental lady glaring right at me. The look of withering contempt on her face told me that she somehow knew I was thinking of that scene from Full Metal Jacket. I had spoken in my own voice, with my own Texas accent, and I certainly didn't mean for the remark to sound as racist and insensitive as it did. I opened my mouth to apologize, but one of the more sensible voices in my head told me to shut up and run away, which is just what I did.
  2. I've been thinking about writing to my favorite cast members, expressing my appreciation for their work and enclosing an index card in a SASE for a possible autograph. I wonder how many of them would respond? Has anyone here written fan mail to the show's cast or met one of the actors?
  3. Thank you for the welcomes. Given how massive this forum is and how bone-meltingly lazy I'm being today, could someone please link me to all the noob/orientation materials?
  4. I am Jenna, a 39-year-old Texan. I'm a huge fan of the show who's slowly discovering the books - I hope to find an interesting, hospitable community here.
