    In spirit of this post from Jedijustin, I'd also like to add "...I'm ready to party! Are you ready to party Patrick?! I'm ready to party! Are you ready to party Mr. Krabs?! I'm ready to party! Are you ready to party Patrick?! I'm ready to party! Are you ready party Spongebob?! I'm ready to party! Are you ready party Mr. Krabs?! I'm ready to party! Are you ready to party Spongebob?! I'm ready to..." Well...you get the point, lol.

    AAAAHHHH!!! I can't believe it! It's almost here!!! :D Just 2 1/2 more working days for me and I'm omw to Florida for my first Celebration ever. It's to good to be true man.

    But hey, that being the case, I had a question for the more experienced Celebration veterans. I was planning out what the wife and I were gonna check out while being at the celebration and looking at the list of activities. There were a few things that got my interest, but I'm not sure what they are and was hoping maybe you guys could shed some light. Namely the Hoth Rebel Base Diorama building, the Lucasarts Free play area, and the Star Wars Family room. What are all those? Do you guys know?

    I don't want to ponder that too hard, this is an occasion for splurging, so I don't worry/think about it. (Within reason)

    I hear ya, man. I'm not looking forward to working on Tuesday before I leave. Luckily I managed to get shift changed to an earlier shift so I have more time to prep in the evening.

    I work 9:30-1, there is no getting an earlier shift. To top it off, I'm working with the manager who banned me from saying anything about CV. I'm going to have to shove my fist in my mouth or something. [face_worried]

    I might have to drive north before I can drive south to pick up my friend if her car isn't fixed by Tuesday. Otherwise I wouldn't be leaving until a few hours after I get off of work.

    BTW, 104 hours until it starts. :D (I know, I'm obsessed. :p)

    I will be arriving on Wednesday the 11th. I will be wearing my homemade Star Wars shirts--I have one for every single day!

    For the last 30 years, if anyone asked me what I liked, I said, "Yes--I like Star Wars and I go to conventions!" I am not embarrased to say that I like Star Wars in front of anyone. Several years ago in the Star Wars Insider, a person was interviewed and they said that they were embarrased to say that they were a Star Wars fan. I am much older now but I will tell anyone what my true interest is.

    Behold, Orlando! Now comes the days of STAR WARS!!!

    I have a wake tonight, funeral and playing hockey tomorrow, and working all day Tuesday before my flight at 6:30 am Wednesday. Still trying to pack things up so I'm not doing everything Tuesday night.

    No. No pics at the Convention Center yet. I was looking. All they had was adverts for the boat show going on this weekend. By the way....ALERT....ALERT...be ready for rain! They are calling for rain ALL WEEK!!! It's raining right now (Sunday morning at 10AM). We're going to Epcot today and plan on getting wet. We were going to go ride air boats, but they don't run in the rain...I guess we won't get to do that. Oh well, fun at Disney.

    Er. It's Florida. They always call for rain every day.

    Anyway, I was at the wyndam last night and already ran into a few people in town for CV. There's a bridge over 1-4 near the Millenium Mall that has the word Orlando along one side so it's like you're driving through/under a gateway to the city. A few days ago someone hung a picture of Lando by the "L" I tried to a get a picture but it's super blurry. By the time I went back to try to get another, the sign was gone. I think someone stole it. :C

    Yeah, I wouldn't call a forecast of "scattered thunderstorms" the same as "calling for rain every day".

    All preparation is done aside from laundering items & packing. Two days left of work (with any luck I'll get to leave early Tuesday) and then I'm on my way!
