    Hi Tracy,
    I have a kid that I am granting a wish for very soon that loves Star Wars.
    We were thinking about having his enhancement party (where we tell him he is getting his wish to go to Disney World) at a pizza place (his favorite food) and we would love to have some Star Wars characters there as well. Do you think that you and your friends would be available to help? It would be fairly soon. I still have to check with the sponsor and the family to see what dates work well with them but the dat! es we are looking at right now are: Saturday, 18th
    Sunday, 19th
    Tuesday, 21st
    Thursday, 23rd

    If any of these dates work with you please let me know.
    Thanks again for your offer!

    Oh, I love the idea! I just don't know if my visitor will still be here (she's supposed to get here on the 9th, but maybe she'd like to come too if she's still here then, in which case I wouldn't see why not if it's the 18th or the 19th). Tuesday the 21st is out; I start acting class that evening and I have English from 11:30am to (I think) 1pm. Depending on where this place is, I may make it Thursday the 23rd if it's well after 1. I start class again on the 20th with English at 11:30 Mon-Thur, and Fine Arts-Music at 3:00 on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please tell me it's here in Pulaski County. It's not just the driving anxiety issue; this month I had some car repair issues this month.

    They are trying to get all the details worked out. I can be there on the 18th 19th. I will go ahead and let them know one of those two days would be fine so they can get things going .

    If it's the 18th or the 19th, I'm pretty hopeful. I believe I have a ride available. Thank you, Jaira. You're a lifesaver.

    Yes, of course, Church. I need to keep that in consideration when making plans, although I can go to evening service if something's going on. I agree that it's probably better not to do something on Sundays if it will infringe with someone's comittment to a church service.

    Hey, what if I just don't know yet? I don't know how long it will take to do that Princess Leia Costume. I can go to Costume Corner and rent the other one if I don't have it made by then, hoping it's available. What should I do, just wait or go to their thread (wherever that is) and tell them I have an 80+% chance of making it as Princess Leia? Jaira, any spare time in the following week? I need to get cracking on that costume if I hope not to spend another $20 on a rented costume, although that's what I'll do in order to do this. I really want to.

    I'm not sure I'll have any spare time in the next week to work on my costume, Barbara. I have four papers and a midterm next week, and Mack will be working 12 hour shifts...I'll give you a call if I see an opening...

    It sounds fun, but with my financial situation I'm kinda afraid to put myself in a situation where I'll be tempted to spend money (and I don't mean the amount it takes to have one meal at a pizza parlor). I hope it goes well, though.

    I say tell them well be there or at least a few of us. If enough people want to that is if not then there will always be another day. Are name is getting out there and will continue we are talking to the Twisters about a Star Wars night. Also if we do the MS walk there will be lots of people there to see us.

    I really want to do the walk. I just hope it won't cost upside the head to do so. I'll have to know the cost before I can decide either way.

    I'VE DONE MAJOR BUSINESS DEALS WITH THE TWISTERS IN THE PAST, I'M SPEAKING WITH TRACY CURRENTLY ON IT. I'M NOT IMPRESSED WITH THE PERSON HE SPOKE WITH AND I MAY TAKE OVER ON THIS ONE PERSONALLY AS THE FOOTBALL TEAM IS RUN BY A BUNCH OF HOCKEY DUDES AND I USED TO PLAY.

    I am posting this on more than one thread: Someone rented the Princess Leia costume at Costume Corner (the reason I reserved the Queen Padme one), and the lady said the Princess Leia had not been picked up yet. I just got back from picking up mine, and I just want to make sure that person knows Costume Corner is open tomorrow from 9am - 2pm. Hope it works out. I just barely remembered mine the last hour it was open today, myself :oops: .
