    Welcome to the line! In this thread, we'll be counting down the days until the opening of Episode II on the big screen. This thread is a celebration, in every sense of the word. Feel free to socialize with your fellow line-mates, and discuss anything you like. Each day, however, will bring us closer to Episode II, and we'll have a little (or big!) celebration!

    A bit of history:

    This thread is the merger of two previously terrific threads: the countdown thread and the social thread. As was true with the last social thread: THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE. This is the one social thread that this forum will allow.

    Fortunately for you in the 'line', this is a very laid back line. No one is first, and no one is last. You don't have to sit in the hot sun, as we're inside :) There's also a nice bar, and we get live entertainment in here. Pass the time with the pool tables, air hockey, video games, and the big screen holo-projectors. But be ready each day to celebrate being another day closer to Star Wars: Episode II!!

    Here is the message from the "Countdown Thread"'s original creator, "hew":

    "Estimating that Episode 2 will open on May 22, 2002 (the Wednesday before Memorial Day weekend), that leaves just 583 days left until the next installment in the Star Wars saga hits the big screen!"

    This thread will be updated daily. (And for the record, hew's previous threads counted down from day 1022 through day 668, until their untimely demise, and my thread counted down from 667 through to the present date)

    Parts 1-3 of the original Countdown, created by hew on the UBB are now lost forever.

    Part 4: [created by hew] http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=418534&replies=102

    Part 5: [created by epic] http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=550985&page=1


    Also, it would be very cool if we can keep a daily update on the latest Episode II related news, info, rumours and general information; as to create a "historical" feel for us all to look back on in months and years to come. Don't you wish you could have had a record of all the "goss" leading up to Episode I...not only to laugh over how silly some of the rumours actually were, but also to remember the good times shared as the anticipation for the new Prequel approached? Well, this CAN be a reality in this thread! Feel free to include all the info you can on a daily basis, not matter how silly the current rumours are but more importantly, to share in the fun and the anticpation for Episode II as one group of extrememly dedicated Star Wars fans.

    So, in conclusion, feel free to discuss anything from the latest Star Wars spoilers to the ability to write prayers on a grain of rice. It's up to you. This is *our* thread!

    Welcome, and enjoy!

    [Special thanks to "hew", the original creator of the Countdown threads, and "Vertical", who has had great input into this thread's finished product.]

    And to kick start the thread:

    583 days to go!!


    ----------
    It's great saddness that I close this thread, but it was a pleasure hanging out with everyone during the wait....see you guys over at the Ep3 Line. :)

    Magnanimously relinquishes his position to Sebious, and buys him a drink.

    It's one of those feeling warm and fuzzy days!

    Orignally posted by Vert in the B&G threads:

    _____________________________________
    ******** THE DRINK MENU ********
    _____________________________________

    The VADERADE:

    A Vaderade is a special concoction whipped up by Senator Dzrekpo Amegnran, consisting of the following:

    1/2 ounce blackberry brandy
    2 ounces bourbon
    1/2 ounce lemon juice
    6 crushed blueberries
    1 dash orange bitters
    1 dash anisette
    Served over ice

    DRINKYPOO:
    Bailey's Irish Cream
    Bushmill's irish Whiskey
    Kahlua
    Strong Coffee
    A little bit of milk

    INRAW (I'm Not Really At Work):
    The main ingredient in this drink is Sodabi, which is basically moonshine distilled from palm sap. It's the liquor of choice in coastal West Africa, and has an indescribable but delicious flavor. Legend has it that the name came when a British colonist took a shot of Sodabi and then fell off his stool. Flat on his rump in the dust, the Brit exclaimed "So that be!" Thus, the name stuck. It is very strong!
    Here's the mix:
    Sodabi
    Grenadine
    Pineapple Juice
    Orange Juice
    Dash of Lemon Juice
    Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum
    A slice of Mango submerged in the drink
    A cherry on top
    Measures of the ingredients depend on taste, and on just how much you want to escape work that day.

    KIMBALL:
    1 ounce Cointreau
    1 ounce light rum
    1 ounce dark rum
    2 ounces pineapple juice
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    Garnish with banana slices

    SIMPLICITY
    tall glass of orange juice

    THE PAIN AND HAVOC:

    2oz Absolut Kurant vodka
    1/2oz Pineapple juice
    1/2oz Blue Curaçao liqueur
    Ice
    2oz Lemonade (sufficiently sour)
    1oz Cranberry juice

    Blend vodka, pineapple juice, blue curaçao and a little ice in a blender until desired consistency is achieved. Mix lemonade and cranberry juice together. Pour vodka mix into glass first, and then top with lemonade mix (which should float). Produces a stunning red-on-blue effect. Red is for Pain (sour as lemons), while blue is for Havoc (strong, and bitter as a result of the blue curaçao).

    THE MAULTINI:

    When I first saw Darth Maul, I immediately thought of Halloween-time. This lead to thoughts of harvest, and to Maul as some sort of angry harvest-demon sent to scorch the earth and take the bounty with him to whatever dark lord he served. My mind works in strange ways.

    So, with Halloween and harvest in mind, I present to you:

    The Maultini

    1 1/2 ounces Skyy Pumpkin Infused Vodka
    1 1/2 ounces Skyy Cinnamon and Clove Infused Vodka
    Splash of Absolut Peppar Vodka
    Dry Vermouth to taste
    Garnish with a Cinnamon Stick
    Add a tiny bit of red food coloring, for effect

    I saw the cinnamon stick as a lightsaber, and the food coloring would be strictly optional. It would make a great drink for those cooler nights of fall, winter, and early spring, but I believe I'd like to taste one right now!

    THE SCREAMING POD RACER (SHOT):

    1oz tequila
    1oz light rum
    1oz orange juice
    1/2oz cherry brandy
    1/2oz melon liqueur
    Served with a little ice, and an orange wheel at the bottom of the glass.

    A couple of these will get you up to speed in no time, maybe even able to do the Kessel Run in less than one parsec! Enjoy.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    These drinks were compiled by a famous b&g'er
    named Senator Dzrekpo Amegnran. All the credit
    goes to him.

    Hey, Seb's, could you post the drink menu on your site also?

    I love the menu and I think it's great to have an off-thread menu and drink list. It'll make it easier for everyone.

    I'll think about it. Neoxeon2, I think, had a lot of other drinks that he created, so I'll want to include those also...but I'll give it some thought when I'm in a better mood. Doesn't take much to set off a Dug.

    I'd love to have that one around at home.
