Elodie:   Scootering and going to the movies!!

When did you first become aware of Oddworld?
Elodie:  At my cousins 11th birthday party, he started playing it when all the adults were talking. (I was scared of it then, but it was about 2 years ago.)

When did you first become a true Oddworld fanatic?
Elodie:  Last year, when I met Kristen (AbeBabe)!

What is your favorite Oddworld character and why?
Elodie:  Well, I like Sligs. I think they make funny sounds, and I like how you can possess them and blow them up!

Elodie:  I like the Glukkons™! They walk funny in the game.

Have you finished Abe's Exoddus?
Elodie:  Nearly!

Why is it that a 10-year-old is so interested in computers and web design?
Elodie:  It's fun, basically. Just doing it for your own pleasure, and getting comments from people all over the world is pretty amazing. The fact that my mother is a teacher has nothing to do with it.

Did you learn this at school or take a special class?
Elodie:  No, I didn't learn it at school and I didn't take a class (that would be SO boring).Actually, Kristen taught me web designing! I have always been interested, but I didn't know anyone who knew how to do it.

How much time do you spend each week on your Oddworld fan site?
Elodie:  Zero hours on school time, and about 10 hours some days on the holidays. Also on the weekends I add stuff I find.
