OK, you passed the lost puppy test, you're in; and John passed the sci-fi test as well. What a bigger and happier family we will be.

Oh my goodness - Earth: Final Conflict - it has been a while. My but that was a strange show. I definitely remember the Taelons, at least. And that ******* - uh, make that jerk-face, Z'or!

Mel - you have a good point about the Minnie. I totally miss that race too. And nutella. Mmmm. You have a good point about that one too. I had been assuming the winged lion-goat thing, I have to admit - I figured you were a classics geek as well. I didn't know it was a term in molecular biology! Pretty cool in all directions!

Sandy! So glad you made it to the new thread! I am so glad you changed your name to something more YOU! You don't strike me as an Eeyore at all! LOVE the 3-2-1--GO!!! aspect of your name, too!

Allie - so great to see you over here as well! I am sorry about the loss of your previous team, but am so glad that it means we get to know you better. Please do add in a Team Ohana clippie when you're ready, but I think we'd all understand if you wanted to hold onto your Buzz, too.

Aloha! I am hoping to join Team 'Ohana and wanted to introduce myself.

Name:
Rebecca
Day Job: Housewife / Work at Home Freelancer / Aspiring Teacher (I'm certified, but thanks to the economy still looking to land my first teaching job.)
Family: My husband of one and a half years, Jeremy. We also have three cats and two rabbits.
Location: Georgia
Favorite race you ever ran: I'm totally new to this running thing!
Best recovery food or beverage: ^ As I said, totally new to running, just been drinking water.
TV Shows you watch or have loved: Stargate Atlantis is by far my favorite - I still miss it. I also loved the Aladdin tv series (my favorite Disney movie). Current shows I watch include House, Stargate Universe, Mythbusters, What Not to Wear, Glee, Biggest Loser, and pretty much anything on Food Network (especially if it has Bobby Flay!).
Races Planned this year: My first race ever will be the Princess Royal Family 5K on March 6. I have the ultimate goal of completing a half marathon this year, but nothing planned yet.
Meaning of DIS screen name: Mine's probably pretty self explanatory, but ... I love dole whips! Last time I went to WDW, I used all but one of my snack credits on dole whips. And I regretted getting that ice cream instead of a dole whip the moment I took the first bite!

I look forward to getting to know everybody! Hopefully I've passed all of the tests (including a love of scifi ).

Rebecca - Do you prefer Rebecca or a nickname? I loved the whole Stargate and SG Atlantis series', and really want to like Universe when it picks back up as well. You may be new to running, but you'll have some other team members there for Princess in March you might be able to meet up with--it took me over 2 years to get to meet some of these guys. Welcome to running and welcome to the Team.

Maria - Earth: Final Conflict I had definitely forgotten about that one, and enjoyed it at the time although found it occasionaly tedious to follow. I just wish Corinna would tell us her true feelings about the characters on that show. :rofl:

Mel, Corinna - I got my Half Fanatic shirt in the mail yesterday and feel so ............... "fanatic-y" now. (may Debra excuse my butchering of the language )

I guess I need to post my info as well

Name: Richard
Day Job: Water Utility Manager
Family: wife Darcy (started dating back in 1985, that seems sooo long ago) daughters Amanda 21 and Patricia 19 (both with August 19 birthdays ), 3 dogs, 1 cat and 1 rabbit
Location: Spring, Texas (just a bit north of Houston)
Favorite race you ever ran: even with all of its trials and tribulations, it still has to be the recent Disney Goofy Challenge (and Debra can attest to the fact that I had a great time out on the course)
Best recovery food or beverage: I love the local bagel shop after my weekend long run with my local running club.
TV Shows you watch or have loved: too many to name here, Star Trek (all), Stargate (all), Mythbusters, Fringe, Law and Order, NCIS (I look past my wife's TV crush on Mark Harmon I like to think she see some of me in that character ), classic and newer Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, I wish I could find Babylon 5 on again, I'll sometimes watch Dirty Jobs (trouble is I have done sevral that I have seen on it ), more recently I am liking Life After People as well...plus I love baseball, although more live than on TV
Races Planned this year: Goofy (done), Run Wild Half Marathon, Lone Star 70.3 Tri, DL Half, Longhorn 70.3 Tri, San Antonio RnR Half, Goofy 2011 (yeah, that's not this year)
Meaning of DIS screen name:hmmm....has a twofold meaning. First, it's a throwback to 4 years of high school Latin/Classics studies where some of us in the class "adopted" ancients Roman-sounding names--and I may have also picked it for the James T. Kirk tie-in. Second, it's a tie in to the Ender series by Orson Scott Card, where two fo the main characters select distinguished sounding names for their online personas, for which I used to use Tiberius as mine (and sometimes still do).

Oh my gosh! I go away for what seems like just a few hours, and we’ve packed up and moved! And completely reorganized, and grown… and I’m trying to catch up, but my job actually expects that I’ll do work? What’s up with that?

Debra – Yes! I’d love an Ohana race schedule. It didn’t seem to make it into a box from the old location to the new one.

Rebecca – Welcome! Any fan of Dole Whips is a friend of mine! The saddest moment of marathon weekend was when I passed the Dole Whip stand and realized I was too cold to eat one. I actually went the entire week without one, and now am kicking myself repeatedly.

Name: Jackie
Day Job: Administrative Supervisor
Family: DH (Bill), DD19, 2 dogs
Location: Raleigh, NC
Favorite race you ever ran: 2009 Richmond Marathon/2009 Disney Marathon
Best recovery food or beverage: Chocolate milk
TV Shows you watch or have loved: Mad Men, Brothers & Sisters, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Bones, Castle, Mythbusters, Burn Notice, House
Races Planned this year: Myrtle Beach Half 2/14
Tobacco Road Half 3/21
Indy Mini-Marathon 5/9
Under consideration: Flying Pirate Half 4/18, Philly RNR 9/19, City of Oaks Half 11/7, OBX Full 11/14, San Antonio RNR
Meaning of DIS screen name: Mouse for Mickey, Dog (originally for my last dog Mystic, now for my dogs in general), Mom in general! DD19 actually created the name.

A note to the newer team members, and a reminder to the (ahem) "older" team members, that I am volunteering to coordinate for any San Antonio RnR team meets or answer questions for anyone unfamiliar with San Antonio.

If we don't go back to Virginia to run Richmond, we'll be at San Antonio again. I think I'll opt for the half this year. That marathon course was pretty dull running by the airport and through the park.

Excuse my ignorance, but what is a Dole Whip? I'm an ice cream guy myself, but everyone here seems to love them.

TV Shows you watch or have loved: Don't watch much TV...never been a sci-fi fan (hope I'll still fit in)...I am more of a crime fan! Cold Case, Law & Orders, though Biggest Loser seems to be a recent addicition! Old time favs Homocide, Picket Fences, I Love Lucy

Sandy, Rebecca, & Christine, to the family!



Name: Julie
Day Job: Stay at home mom
Family: DH, DD10, DS8, & DS3
Location: Boston
Favorite race you ever ran: Hmmm...since I've only run four races, there's not much to choose from. I'd say Mickey 2010.
Best recovery food or beverage: Ice cold Coke
TV Shows you watch or have loved: American Idol, Survivor, Bones, Psych, Criminal Minds, anything on HGTV. In the old days, I loved MASH.
Races Planned this year: Run to Remember Half 5/30, BAA Half 10/11 (Sadly, no Disney races for me in 2011 )
Meaning of DIS screen name: Splash Mountain is my favorite ride. The first time I rode it was on my honeymoon in 1994. I had intended for my screen name to be laughinplace1994, but apparently, that was one character too long for the Disboards, so the "4" was dropped.

San Antonio Half? Really?
Then I just might not try to talk you into the Goofy if you come down here! Just remember you worked me over last year to do Goofy.



TEAM 'OHANA MEETS

Based on initial speculation I am seeing at least 2 good opportunities for Team 'Ohana Meets this year.
At this point I am including all "maybes" on the list. Let me know if I should add any other names or races to this list. I'll also try to keep a copy of the list on the first page of this thread, most likely as post #4.

Princess 5K and Half 2010
Mel
Corinna
Rebecca


San Antonio Rock n Roll 2010
Richard
Jackie
Debra
Mel
John

John - If you're an ice cream guy, you'd love Dole Whips. They're a soft serve dessert that's available only at Aloha Isle at the Magic Kingdom (and somewhere at the Polynesian) and at Disneyland. (You can also get them in Hawaii, but I don't find myself there very often) Most common flavor is pineapple, but they're also available in vanilla, chocolate, and swirl. Since these boards are G rated, I won't repeat what I said when I first tasted one, but for a long time I had a picture of one as the screen saver on my phone! And Richmond is on my "maybe" list for this year, since DH hasn't run it yet and several of his friends want him to do it. I ran the full last year and loved it and would do it again but don't want to do another full. Unfortunately, the prettiest parts of the course are only on the full.

Christine - I LOVED Picket Fences! Keep me posted on your NC marathon decision. We'll have to coordinate! And don't tell anyone, but I'm not much of a sci-fi fan either. DH is, though, so I understand what they're talking about!

After a hectic morning at work, things have slowed to a crawl. 2 hours to go, and absolutely NOTHING to do. Guess I'll just have to DIS...

Jackie
