    It's all very exciting. I don't know if I can contain myself. :)

    Because it's supposed to rain on Saturday, we'll probably end up being inside so keep ya eyes open.

    Didn't take pictures, sadly, but I did meet up with Dags and lordvaderff for lunch. They were full of amusing stories and were surprised to find that I'm really a girl. :D

    It's official...it was officially a meet.

    Three members of the forum turn up and enjoyed Pizza and conversation.

    We talked about Star Wars, Clone Wars, Favourite movies, nerds, Uber-Nerds, and just general stuff.

    And YEAH....Xan is a girl, and a very attractive girl too....who'd have thunk. :)
    (mental note...must check profiles more often.)

    I did have my camera with me, but didn't take any pics cause then we'd only have two people in the shot. :)

    Good meet, good day, good people...all round winner.

    Naturally, I took the opportunity to display my worldly nerdiness to her without holding anything back. :)

    It was good to see a new face in the crowd that's for sure.

    As for the meet itself, well we might've barely scraped through with the minimum number of attendees, but at least it can be called "official". As it was the weather was quite sunny so we ended up staying outside after all. Like LordVaderFF the conversation was good, the food great (told ya the Toto's Polo Fungi can't be beaten), and we had a bit to natter about.

    So now the quarterly VicFF meet clock resets itself (phew the pressure's off :) ). As to what happens next and when ... well I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Publically she's saying she had a great time, privately she's probably saying "What a bunch of FREAKS!!!" :)

    You know things are bad when you criticise a certain loser dude that you know because he really gets into discussions of Star Destroyer firepower on a technical level only to find that 10 minutes later you yourself are actually talking about laser canons on a Star Destroyer vs a Mon Calamari cruiser. It wasn't my fault I couldn't help it!

    Guess what folks it's official...

    I HAVE ISSUES! :_|

    Arh , so Xany actually zoned out and was day dreaming the whole time and that's why she had such a good time? :p Hey, she showed me the level of her geekdom last night, you guys have competition!!!

    You're all freaks!!

    *cough* :p

    Nah it was good fun. :D Funny moment, Dags' Revenge of the Jedi shirt confused me enough that when we were talking about our favourite movies I went "Return of the Si- wait..." which was somewhat embarrassing. And hey, I've gotten into discussions on Star Destroyers vs. Mon Cal cruisers before too ... although perhaps never in person, I suppose. :p

    Also, yes, I have waaaay too much spare time on my hands and like to make graphs of things. Gotta have a hobby, some people make stormtrooper outfits, I program. :p
