Thanks! I am looking forward to Oz: The Great and Powerful, but like you said it doesn't look very canon. Certain elements look very MGM film specific and I have no clue how they're getting away with it. It's a shame because Baum wrote 14 full length Oz books that are all in public domain.

Welcome to NW emeraldcityofoz! I have always wanted to get around to reading the Oz series but have never had the time. I also love Broadway musicals, and I'm in our high school'c musical this year, we are doing Legally Blonde. :D

Thank you! The Oz books are all relatively quick reads averaging around 300 pages each. I've never seen/listened to Legally Blonde, but I've heard it's good. Our musical this year is Chicago, which I love. :)

He is a Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula. He is very lazy and spends most of his time in his log. I've learned a lot about spiders since I've gotten him, they are quite interesting creatures, at least to me. :)

I'm scared of spiders. You're brave. Ok, so now I figured I would update my information, some of it's changed, but some of it stayed the same. I'm really into reading, art, classic Disney, Saved by the Bell, The Nightmare before Christmas, and Hotel Transylvania. and I want to start my own pet sitting business.

Welcome Slatts! :D
...and preparing for my life to be turned upside-down by a newborn!
Haha, yeah, that was me too 5.5 months ago. And then my little guy decided to arrive 13 weeks early. Talk about dramatic. :P But he's home now and he's awesome. Congratulations ahead of time on your little one! Do you know if you're expecting a boy or a girl?

Thanks for the welcome guys!
@ fantasia_kitty: WOW! 13 week early? Talk about dramatic and no doubt scary! I am glad to hear it all is well though. As for my child, we are waiting until the day to know. At first I just wanted to know ahead of time, but now the anticipation of that day is growing and I can see why leaving it a surprise is good.

Welcome to you, Slatts. How cool that you will be a first-time dad in late May! So wonderful. :D *is personally glad you are leaving the gender as a surprise for you and your wife* B-) All the best to you both in this final trimester.

And welcome back to you, Brady TIH Narnia! :) I hope you can find a bit more time to chill a bit here on the forum. All the best with your studies!
