It certainly has.
At last! I've finally thrown off the shackles of o2's crappy broadband service! Here dawns a new era, Chewgumma is now surfing the web via fibre wire!
So, considering your username, do you actually chew gum on a regular basis?
Nah. It's just a pun that I quite liked that I once read in some random book.
Ahhhhhhhhh. Well, regardless, it's a catchy name.
Thanks! To be honest I was surprised it wasn't already taken when I signed up. I know the book I read it in wasn't exactly a huge hit, but the fact that no one on a Star Wars fansite had read it before? Madness!
It was called "Bill the Galactic Hero on the Planet of Bottled Brains" or something like that. It was a spoof of pulpy sci-fi stories like Flash Gordon and two of the characters were called "Ham Duo" and "Chewgumma". The book was a bit pants to be honest, but those two names stuck with me.
*woot woot* I am EMPLOYED again, pending my background check - seriously more money, and full bennies to boot!!
Now to just get over this pneumonia....
@DarthBreezy! That's really awesome! And I hope you get over your illness soon.
It doesn't start until the end of July, so I have time to get over it!
That's good to hear. I hope you enjoy the new job.
I wasn't going to start a thread on it because it could be meaningless fluff but I wanted to share it anyway:
Apparently Lucasfilm have a double area booked for Comic Con. Is that particularly significant or is that the norm for them?
Well Carrie Fisher did say that the Big 3 might appear at Comic Con. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed!
See I would have thought they were saving that reveal for Celebration. Perhaps they've got other big surprises lined up for the next month?
Yeah, I thought the same thing too especially with Carrie, Mark, Kathleen and a bunch of others already confirmed for Celebration Europe. Who knows what Disney has up their sleeve but it sure will be exciting to find out.
BTW - if you haven't seen World War Z, I say it's worth checking out!
I hear that as an adaptation from the book... it's pretty bad, as it really only has Zombies in common with the book... but as a movie in and of itself... it's pretty good. (not spectaculart mind you, but still pretty good)
It was worth the matinee price I paid anyway.
Friends of mine want me to see it, but I'd rather not.
He traded this uniform and a 40 million dollar contract for a stripped uniform and a .20 cent an hour contract working at a prison laundry room.
All for the the huge insult of his friend talking to some people he didn't like.
I'd rather be connected to an electrical chair than this FOOL!
On a happier note, my Disney world countdown is down to 1!
I should be in Eeth's area by 8pm tomorrow, A Chorus of disapproval by 10:00pm
and Anakinfansince1983 by 1pm on Saturday
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! .
I think I just ate my own weight in my home-made vegan beef-sichuan.
From now on you can call me Danny the Hutt.
Oh, and I guess I'll have to teach my cat (Wicket) to laugh like Salacious Crumb.
That is all.
Yeah... another zombie movie.
My problem with World War Z isn't that it's a zombie movie but how they so flagrantly took a book that is a political satire and sucked out all the politics in the adaptation.
Interesting, didn't know that they had done that.
