Oh, hello there! I'm the Pirka! I've been lurking here for quite a while (even on my Blackberry while I was at the park, heh) and have finally decided to bite the bullet and post here!

My greatest passion is animation of all kinds, Western and Eastern! I hope to be an animator someday. For now, I spend so much time drawing anyways!

I recently celebrated my 16th birthday at WDW on October 27th (my 5th time altogether but my only birthday there since I was 6...wow, a decade ago). It was amazing. I rode the ToT for the first time (I was absolutely petrified, as I am NOT a thrill ride person, but I felt inclined to because I absolutely love the Twilight Zone and bellhop uniforms) but it was sooo worth it! ;)

I also love the Citizens of Hollywood, and it feels so cool to see a site where other people love them and know who they are! The first one I ever met was Paige Turner in 2006 (or maybe 07?). This year, I got to soiree with Otto Von Bon Bahn, Cynthia Bloom, Honey Darling, "Ready" Freddy Fiddlesticks and Flavio Fellini (I *just* missed Shelby Mayer! And Sparky was nowhere to be seen! Aw, next time...).

I'm also a huge Stitch fan and an equally huge Imagination Institute fan...but that has no relevance here. :D Tehehehe

I hope that I will be a good part of the community here at Studios Central!

PS: If you're wondering, my avatar isn't me. Heh. It's actually a Hollywood Tower Hotel bellhop character I made up named Mr. Rodney Dusk :);;
PSS: I hope I don't seem like a dork right now.

Welcome!!!! You are not wierd at all! In fact you are in great company.

One of my favorite things to do at the studios is to hang out with the citizens of hollywood... in fact my kids love when I break into the...

99 X walk into a bar... and the bartender says...

and I go on and on with lame jokes... Who is the dork now?

Or when I tell paige turner that I am int he air force and she starts yelling to everyone in the area... "OH ITS AN OFFICER..." as only she can say it with her accent...

Anyway... WELCOME!!!

Welcome welcome, Pirka! You seem very creative and articulate for your age, and you're in good company here! I'm relatively new myself, compared to most here, but I can say with confidence that I'm sure you'll do well here. I like how you tied your first post to your interests in your profile. Glad to see that you set up your profile so we can know a little about you. I started a thread to encourage everyone to do that. Helps us all get to know a little about each other, IMHO, don't you think? :)
I'm not a Disney freak... I'm NOT, I tell you... no way.... you can't prove it....

You are correct. Heck, that's the purpose of this forum and to a larger extent this message boards; a place for those who enjoy the Studios to not just share their affinity for the park in one place but to also to get to know everyone because I know from meeting many of you in Disney World, it's fantastic being able to connect with people who are like-minded. :)

Welcome Pirka and happy belated birthday (we share the same birthday month). As far as being "a good part of the community", you already are; you went from lerking to posting.

It's to bad you missed Shelby Mayer, he is fabulous. When he's on the streets, he owns them. Were you at the Studios on a Friday or Saturday? The Hollywood Public Works guys are off that day. And he's also getting ready to be a Santa at Epcot (Norway). He'll be there a few days a week. I'm not sure when that starts though. So good for Epcot, but bad for the fans of HPW's.

Welcome again. I look forward to hearing more from you and seeing some of your animation.
