    I have two days of work. They won't be long enough, I'm afraid. Not fond of flying; hate that part of traveling.

    I don't leave until Wednesday, which means I have gotten maybe 2% of packing done.:p

    Got most of my packing done, but I'm still making a couple of things, darnit.

    The weather is with us. If there's no storm cooking up in the Atlantic by now it is very, very unlikely that anything could develop to threaten Orlando next weekend.

    :eek: Ohio? Where are you from? I'm from near the Akron area. :)

    I've got work tomorrow and Tuesday (9:30-6 Mon, 9:30-1 Tuesday). I still don't know what time I'm "offically" leaving home. I'll hopefully find out tomorrow.

    And I'm so not packed yet. Have to get a new air mattress tomorrow after work. [face_plain] (One bed in our room for 4 people. :oops: Needless to say, we need the air mattress.)

    And I still don't feel like packing tonight. I'm too tired. [face_tired]

    And I think I'm coming down with a cold. :_|

    I have 0% of packing done. :cool:

    ardavenport Si, and the low that was dumping a little extra rain should be gone tomorrow and we'll back to normal weather* by the event!

    * defined by: hot, humid and afternoon thunderstorm.

    Can't we just have the wildfire? I'm already used to those!:p

    Also, you don't count, as you live in the city.

    Okay . . . I've packed and repacked. My hands are shaking right now as I type.

    Good morning everyone! Just woke up. I'll be on-line for about an hour then I'll shave (trim my beard), shower, eat, and head off to Bishop International Airport! I'll be arriving in Orlando by 10:45am.
    Boy, does that sound sweet! See you all there. :D [:D] =D= [face_laugh] [face_flag] [face_dancing]

    I'm currently sorting through music for the TFN party. Who knew there was so much Star Wars-inspired music out there?

    That's funny Grimby, because I've been doing the same thing, making a playlist for the party to play off my laptop if needed. I figured I'd mix it up a bit so its not Star Wars the entire night, so I've thrown in some danceable stuff like Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas...etc.

    Nice! I'm not what you'd consider an authority on dance/party music, so the non-SW stuff will be a welcome addition. Dingo and DieWompRatDie (our designated DJ for the evening) will be supplying a bunch of music as well.

    And just so you have an idea of what I'm looking at, I'm currently up to 7 hours worth of Star Wars-inspired music in a variety of genres including rock, hip-hop, techno/trance, and of course disco (:p). This doesn't include any film soundtracks either. Quite a list if I do say so myself.

    This is a very important question, is music from the Holiday Special included?

    The threat of non-SW dance music without the promise of the holiday special? This is madness


    You should at least play "Good Night, But Not Goodbye" as the final song.

    Of course, seeing as it's Celebration, we could always play [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXcb7VPw59s]this song[/link]. ;)

    If I question why you picked the one unplayable song, would I get barred from the party for the implications of that statement?

    There are several unplayable songs from the Holiday Special. So yes.

    We should really have an official "signing off for CV" thread before the majority of us fans leave for Orlando, so.....

    Are they running the music from a laptop or CD's? As for Star Wars music, I bet you got some of that from the music CD I gave you years ago didn't you?
