    As a reminder to people if you are interested in going to Bloomsday e-mail or PM me, and don't forget to register either. Bloomsday is now less than a month away.

    If you do not have any Star Wars related costumes let me know and we can arrange a way to get you up to Spokane for one of thier costuming meetings.
