    Hello all!

    I figured that before resorting to chucking Kyle's computer out the window, I might as well check out the website that eats up all his free time. Either I'll find the secret to cutting his chains or I'll get sucked in and not care that he spends more time with this website than me. Either way, I win.

    So, me. I'm a dancer turned electrician who's currently working for Music Theatre of Wichita. (Producers opens tonight.) I'm relatively new to the tech thing, having only discovered it 3 years ago, but I can wield a mean wrench and I have a special interest in programming.

    So, yeah, that's pretty much it. Hope to learn much, meet people, and call my husband out once in a while.

    Awesome.

    Stephanie

    Uh, hi Stephanie. I'm Keith, one of Footer's playmates and we really didn't mean to stay out past midnight quite so many times. I'll be sure he checks in a little more often, ok?

    Oh, and uh, please don't mention this web forum to my wife. She likes gardening, and it keeps her out of the shop. Well, it has so far....


    (All my best to ya, and welcome to the ControlBooth! :) )

    Glad to have you aboard Stephanie! Now I'm going to see if I can spot any tone/register changes in Footer's posts from here on in . . .

    Welcome to the Booth at last Stephanie! I am another one of Kyle's playmates who kept him out too late at night. I swear there was no alcohol or girls present. Perhaps you and [user]MistressRach[/user] (wife of dvsDave our webmaster) should start a CB wives support group. My wife would be interested as long as she can talk gardening with Kelite's wife.

    Now that we have you here... I have a question that has been puzzling several of the CB regulars since your wedding photos were first shared here. What the hell is a woman like you doing with a curmudgeonly troll like Footer?!?! He didn't just marry out of his league... he married out of his Universe! ;)

    (sorry just had to bust his .... a little).

    Welcome. :mrgreen:

    I absolutley refuse to believe several things:

    A) That this isn't Footer in disguise
    B) Like Gaff said if this is the real MrsFooter that he was able to marry so far out of his league.

    The only way I'll believe that Kyle didn't just download a picture of a random beutiful girl off the internet and use that to pose as his "wife" is if you tell us embarrising stories about him he wouldn't want shared.

    If you are real WELCOME!!!! And enjoy the show.

    ((((There's a reason MrsGrog doesn't log into CB....actually its probably better all around if she doesn't))))

    Would Mrs. Grog like to join the CB Widow support group?

    Footer shared wedding pictures with a few of us here a while back. Here's the highlight for anyone who hasn't seen them.

    I ask you to judge for yourself. Is this Footer in disguise or an actual woman so cool she adjusted some instruments in a wedding dress.

    Having actually met Mr. &[user]MrsFooter[/user],

    I can vouch for her actual existence and not just of figment of Footer's imagination. I can also vouch for her wicked sense of humor.

    I'm sure you [user]MistressRach[/user] could form the CB widowers club. (but don't let Rach discuss gardening... she kills every plant that has come through our door ;) )

    Welcome aboard! Let me know if you want me to forward any of Footer's PMs to you for perusal ;)

    Yeah Dave, but Footer is a crafty guy. Maybe he was using some sort of mind control device to make you think you met MrsFooter.

    Look out Kyle, Dave can read your e-mail. :shifty:

    Hey Steph,

    I have a dancer friend who works in Lawrence KS. Wish I was there now as that we are still waiting for summer to get here.

    Now that you mention it, Steph DID seem to have an air of Katie Holmes (Mrs. Tom Cruise) about her. Share your secret, Footer. Must have something to do with 4321.

    I knew my ears were burning for a reason! :)

    Hi! Welcome Stephanie! You've now joined the very exclusive CB wives club. Registered members include... us.

    If you want someone to lament CBs role in the demise of your marriage with, I'm your girl. ;) Or if you just want to bust the boys you know whats I'm up for that too :twisted:

    The two of you should create your own CB Social Group.

    All I can think of is some kind of Jedi mind trick "This IS the wife your looking for." He he he.


    P.s. congrats for a good subject line Stephanie I haven't paid attention to a new member post in a long while.

    Stephanie, congratulations. I think you may win the most posts for a New Member thread, ever! Welcome to the booth. We look forward to your perspective on matters.

    My wife has her own forums, so at least I'm safe.

    Yes, she is real. And yes, she can program like a bat out of hell.

    We got married in the theatre at the High Shool I graduated from. I pretty much took over the place for 3 days. We built a center isle over the seats and lit the crap out of it. Before you ask, there were no internal cues during the ceremony. The wedding party consisted of 2 engineers, two TD's, an SM, a costume designer, 3 LD's, and an art freak.
