    Well, Sandy's knocking on my door. I'm pretending that I'm not home.

    Not sure how effective that will be. She's not of the type that gives up easily.

    All my lights are out. There's no car in my parking space. And I'm letting all my calls go to voicemail. Clearly, I'm not home. :p

    Bah. That's not even close to being enough to dissuade even the most fair weather of trick-or-treaters.

    This, I know from personal experience.

    Woah, so many mods online. And regular members. New movies mean new members, so as litizens we need to make sure all the noobs become attached to the current canon before things inevitably go boom in the next few years.



    :p

    I would welcome them, but I don't trust anyone. It is better that way.

    So, you mean we just merged all those boards for no reason?

    Well, it's extremely easy to un-merge them, thankfully. :p

    Yeah, just click a tag for a forum, "Select all" and "move." Repeat for every page of the forum. :p

    As for the banners, uh....


    LOOK, IT'S MICKEY MOUSE!!!

    It snowed all night and this day, so I did what I felt was right, of course.

    Was watching AOTC today and realized that the actor playing Cliegg Lars is Jack Thompson, famous in Australia but known in the US primarily for Breaker Morant--which is available on Hulu so no one has an excuse for not watching it. Cuz it's amazing.

    Not sure how this escaped my notice til now.

    Also in the realm of "things that Valin has missed the boat on," apparently this guy has existed for over 18 months and I didn't even realize it:

    WTH? [face_hypnotized]

    They are now adding these guys left and right apparently, which is cool, although I wish they didn't all have to be Jedi.

    You really ought to tag @AdmiralNick22 for things like that.

    Can we give Yoda's species a name already? Good grief. It's stretching credulity that a bunch of these guys are running around and nobody ever mentions their species. Obviously they're a known species IU, but they're just clearly not known to us.

    Also, I agree with @Valin__Kenobi about these guys all being Jedi. Can't we get one of them that's some sort of thug or homeless guy speaking on Cockney Rhyming Slang or something?

    We'll never get a species name. Lucas is taking that to his grave.

    I still think they're from the Unknown Regions since no one IU seems to know their species. DFR notes that Luke tried and failed to find out.

    I.e., every thousand years or so one feels the pull of the Force and wanders over to Coruscant to get trained. :p There's Vandar Tokare, this new guy, the unnamed one in the carving on Ruusan, then Yoda and Yaddle. Looks like the FOTJ era is due for one.

    What I find actually weirder is that Yoda and Yaddle, the two that seem most Coruscant-acclimatized, are the only ones with the backwards-speak. [face_thinking]

    But that's where he was taking the sequel trilogy, too, so who knows anymore.
