    LOL

    That was me that posted that on the 70th Explorers Garrison!! [face_laugh]

    I'm talking with some people 501st wide at the moment. It looks like it will be a go. Hopefully by next week all the plans will be finalized and I can get my plane tickets.

    It turns out that one of the guys I trooped with at VisionCon may end up going.

    hehe, I didn't know your screen name over there. LOL

    I am glad it is working out. We will all have to meet up there. There is talk of a Fan Force dinner one night, so that might be fun. :D

    It looks like since a roommate won't be an issue, I'll plan on flying in on Thursday and out again on Monday.

    Me too, my next costume and the one after that. Thanks to Frank I am making great headway on the trivia questions for the MOTF Star Wars Trivia Contest. Also, well underway the numberous prizes/awards I am "in charge of". It should all actually be done by Dragoncon. (Thank goodness I have eight months to do it in). :D

    I am slowly gathering all the info I need to make my Shaak Ti headpiece much improved this time around, but I still have along way to go on actually finishing even one costume. Ugh!
    I am just going to concentrate on Shaak Ti for now and if the other costumes fall in place as I go along so be it. LOL!

    Feeling the pressure......Need time off......Must work on costumes......want to sleep.....Oh waite. I still have several hours of work left. Damn! Oh well, Maybe I will be able to get some work on my snow trooper done this weekend at the armor party unless I get fragged into working the weekend because of the fishing classic. There are rumors of a new schedule comming out for the end of the week. Don't know how they are going to do it unless they are willing to pay overtime....which they arn't.

    Endor Rebel is still in the planning stages, Fallen Jedi is done, Mando is in the reworking process, and a man called Jayne is also in the planning stages. Darn the no money problem.

    Richard Hatch has been added. I talked to him briefly while at the con last year. He is such a sweet, down to earth guy and still hot!

    Ah, where was that post this time *last* year? ;) B and I got hit up by one of these guys five minutes after checking into the hotel that Thursday afternoon. He wasn't that obnoxious, and we did give him a couple dollars. But after a while, we quickly learned he wasn't the only one at that 'game' and it got easier to tell the other ones to fark off.

    I did this when I was a 15yr old punk trying to get into a punk show down at Mississippi. I was not homeless and though I did not have an official job, I did babysit for money. I think we scared the tourists into making us go away more than anything. LOL! Since I know the drill I don't give money. I will however offer money when someone needs change for the bus (and is obviously getting on the bus). I believe I got to pay it back some way. I don't want Karam biting me in the butt for this one.

    Hmmm...I never noticed this before. I wonder if it's a nice quiet yoga sort of deal or sitting in chairs getting lectured. Still...could help with the smoking...or not.
