Hello all! Alex here. Thanks again to all you guys for helping my love of Star Wars "burst out from within myself" after harvesting in inside for a very long time. Especialy to SoulRaven who gave me ride there and back. He rocks! The Force has led me too new friends. Here are some of the highlights of the trip: Thursday: Meeting the guys of course and trying the nastiest, greasiest, best tasting tacos at taco bell (taco hell)for the first time. (Celebrity Alert!!!) After the 1st day I had to take a "share-a-limo" to my hotel from the convention (only $10) but I was the only one in the limo. A man stoped my driver from pulling away and partialy got in....I couldn't see his face and yelled "WRONG RENTAL LIMO"! I thought it was just another limo/taxi pickup. Then he closed the door and I saw his face out the window...I had just kicked out C3PO / master of ceremonies, Anthony Daniels from my limo! I was speachless for a bit. Then I told the driver and she laughed. Friday: I got in line at 5:00 AM and was around #30th in line so I was one of the first to buy the exclusive figures, but before they opened the doors, Anthony Daniels came out to meet the first few fans in line so I got meet and take a picture with him. As I posed with him to get my picture with him, I whispered to him, "sorry about the limo thing yesterday" and he gave me a look and replied "that was you? That was the second time that happened to me". So I was relieved that I had a chance to apologize". Saturday: I got in line at 7:00AM and was # gazilion something. In the afternoon I built a Mos Eisley diorama (moisture evaporater of which i will have pictures up soon) in the diorama room. I went outside to spray paint it and met Rick McCallum's manager. I got her to take it to him and he signed it along with my 3 day badge. The badge i will keep and the signed diorama Chicago Force will raffle off. (my donation) Sunday: I was helping Chicago Force put fan club stuff in the cars and along comes Shannon Baska (Mara Jade) and Mary Oyaya (Luminara Unduli) and got a picture with them. With Shannon was Amy Allen (Aayla Secura) but we didn't recognize her untill afterwards. I will post other highlights daily as I remember them because there are soooo many. Thanks again all!
