    Thanks so much for the laughs, Hazel. :)

    Not much of a diary reader, but the first post caught my attention and I just had to join the fun.

    Simply brilliant. It's quite amazing how much information Artoo was entrusted with. Looking forward to the post-move entry.

    Again, I ROCK! But what the bleep were those kids doing in the trash compactor anyway?

    [face_laugh] Hanging out with the dianoga, of course!

    Although, my circuits were also shocked to see Anakin-Senior cut down General Kenobi. - EMIT MOURNFULL SIGH - I shall conserve him in my memory banks for as long as I function.

    Emit mournful sigh, indeed. :(

    Thanks for posting before THE MOVE.

    I love the Jedi mind trick. "You will run blindly into danger." It must be a mind trick...otherwise anybody in their right mind would say, "That's suicide." Good work Artoo. I wonder if Artoo is now almost sentient after 70 years without a memory wipe.

    Thanks for the update. I don't look forward to the move. I will go into Fandom withdraw.

    I just love the sarcasticness you put into him.

    Artoo's right, Padme would be furious with Anakin. More soon

    Artoo, Artoo, Artoo... Don't you know that people are just naturally attracted to garbage mashers and Dumpsters? Sure, there are signs all over them that say "Do not play in or around" and they stink worse than Dagobah, but that's all just an invitation to dive right in!

    Though... I have to wonder... where do they get such big pieces of garbage? Can't wait for Artoo's comments on the Vader's littering in ESB...

    Hi @Book-Geek, @Briannakin, @earlybird-obi-wan, @Jade_eyes, @Jedi_Lover, @Lady_Misty, @epithree and @TrakNar, Artoo's diary is back. :D

    I'm only tagging the ones that replied to the last entry [Thank you very much [:D] ] and that I've seen around since I have no idea if the others will come in. If I have missed you, I apologize.
    Please let me know if you want to continue being notified (tagged) for this diary.

    To start off, I'm reposting the first 7 entries because, as you all have noticed, the imported text is covered with weird symbols and question marks and is impossible to edit. The new entry is after the bold paragraph.

    »» Master Luke is awake! Master Luke is awake! » DO LITTLE HAPPY DANCE » But Threepio has lost an arm.

    »» Have finally arrived on General Kenobi's home base. Master Luke as finished reattaching C-3PO's arm and now General Kenobi is telling him about Anakin and the Jedi knights, and has presented him with Anakin's old lightsaber – I swear, I never thought I'd see that thing again. Still have the little compartment to hide it in, though.– Making note that he treats the Anakin/Vader subject as if they are two separate beings » CONFIRM DIRECTIVE: Do not reveal Anakin Skywalker as Lord Vader to his children; Official version – Darth Vader betrayed and killed Anakin Skywalker.

    »» Master Luke and General Kenobi have gone searching for a pilot in a suspicious looking local cantina that does not allow droids to enter. C-3PO and I have to remain outside. C-3PO spent the entire time cowering behind me.

    »» Droid-sat C-3PO while Master Luke went off to sell his speeder. Had to hear him rant that this was all my fault. Trust me Threepio, I'd rather be in a lubrication bath than be the galaxy's most wanted droid.

    »» Have arrived at the designated boarding gate. I swear I've seen this ship before and I know I've seen that co-pilot before. Wasn't that one of Ahsoka's friends?

I AM NOT! I AM NOT! Ahem, continuing status update... He also informs me that said attack on the Death Star was successful and the space station has been destroyed. Master Luke was the one who took the final shot. He is now a hero of the Rebellion. In the meantime, I've been out of order for the past 2.5 standard days while undergoing repairs. C-3PO informs me also that there will be a ceremony in another 2 standard hour to award Master Luke and Captain Solo a honor medals for their deeds in the battle.

Oh, my babies look so nice and so happy. – EMIT EMOTIVE SIGH. - Hey, did Captain Solo just give my little girl a wink? What's up with that?

    Aw! I've missed your Artoo Diary so much! Loved his version of the medal ceremony, and it's cute how protective of Luke and Leia he is and that he calls them his babies.[face_love]

    R2 the movie character with the foulest language in movie history: they beeped out every single word. :p

    R2 though is still funny as I remember.

    And he was repaid for leaving 3PO for that droid spa during the Clone Wars by it taking so long to get that oil bath. :p

    Hey Chewie didn't get a medal and you don't hear him complaining about it. Unless that is what all that Wookiee hollering was about at the end of the movie. :p Please put me on an update list. I don't get over to the SAGA era very often. Nicely done!

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Droids... Artoo, you deserved that long-awaited oil bath.

    Thank you @earlybird-obi-wan, @Book-Geek, @epithree, @Lady_Misty, @AzureAngel2, @Jedi_Lover, @Briannakin, @TrakNar and @Jade_eyes. [:D]

    I also took this opportunity to test the edit mode and upped the viggie that triggered this diary for those who haven't read it yet. It was posted almost 2 years ago.

    But now, let's start Empire Strikes Back...



    Entry Ten

    ENTRY » START NEW
    GALACTIC DATE » 38:6:1 GrS
    GALACTIC POSITION » Echo Base - Hoth
    SITUATION » Freezing my circuits off on the ice planet of Hoth

    »» STATUS UPDATE: After the victory on Yavin 4, the Rebel Alliance has changed its base location to the Anoat Sector, to the planet Hoth. - Yup! Blow up a Death Star and take a prolonged vacation in the coolest location in the galaxy. But in this case, coolest meant cold, not awesome. Basic is such a tricky language. - We have been here for the past three standard years and we will remain until Lord Vader finds our location. At the present time, Master Luke is out on patrol and I am overseeing the maintenance procedures on his X-wing.

    »» C-3PO has been asked by the Princess to go to Captain Solo and inquire whether he has any information concerning Master Luke's whereabouts. She was complaining that the Captain has not been returning her comms - These two are strange sentients, when they are not paired up, they continuously seek each other out; when they are paired up, they bicker incessantly until parted. Completely illogical!

    »» I dutifully follow my counterpart since I too am concerned about Anakin-Junior.

    »» It is official, Master Luke has not returned from his patrol. Now, I'm really worried.

    »» EXTEND SENSOR ARRAY » SEEKING... SEEKING... SEEKING » I regret to inform that I am not able to locate Master Luke under the present weather conditions - EMIT WORRIED SIGH - Cursed ice-bucket of a planet.

    »» Captain Solo has decided, against all logical arguments, to go out and search for Master Luke. I would volunteer to go too, but I know I would be refused. Still, I will wait for their return by the main entrance.

    »» May the Force be with them!

    Very nice. I'm with Artoo....WHY HOTH!! Think about it. If you are looking for rebels wouldn't their lifeform heat signature be easy to pick up on a frozen planet? I guess it is off the beaten path...but it is so damn cold.

    I look forward to the next entry. I am irritated that Artoo wasn't in the sickbay room for "The Kiss". Please have Threepio tell him about it.:D

    Yup @Jade_eyes, you're tagging right. Did you notice the list that showed up while typing? You can choose the name from it.

    Poor Artoo will nearly blow a gasket when he lerans of what happens in the medbay, which will be hilarious. I love his commentary on the Basic language, and especially loved the one on Han and Leia. It's so true!

    No one but a few take R2 seriously. One is dead, another is on the wrong side and the other is lost in a blizzard.

    That's how it is with some couples bicker bicker when together and then where is _______ when I need them?!? Then the realize how they feel and boom!
