    sell your soul to the devil. that's the best way of doing it :p

    Seriously, a job of some description would be a good start. Asking your parents. If you are a student, you can get the student flight discounts as well.

    LOL!! Check my profile...at 37 married with two kids, I hardly think asking mum and dad will wash! :p Hubby is chipping in $50 a month and given me a $500 head start when we sold our bigscreen TV....I was thinking about a job when my youngest starts school in October.....but really, I was hoping to get some silly suggestions here, like the soul selling. I plan to work to get the money, once in a life time trip. :D

    Scratch the trip for the opening. Go to Celebration 3, then come back to Oz for the premiere. I think we get it first anyway.

    :p

    Well, I'm hoping to make the same trip Addie! So far working and saving doesn't seem to be the answer so I'm planning on either stealing kidneys from passed out people in pubs and clubs, or selling photos of my friends imitating celebrities...or maybe both... [face_thinking]

    maybe we could go into business together? :p

    Oooh, can I join you, PulsarSkate? Some people have said that I look like Etahn Hawk...and others said Matthew Mc...that guy in all those movies whose name I can't spell! :p

    Hmmm...as for money suggestions...well, I can't really give any advice. Cos' I'm only 18 and lack all this wordly experience... [face_plain]

    Really Skate? You planning to be there for the release of EP 3? That's when I plan to go.....I have lots of DL friends in Texas, so I thought I'd go there......I have nearly $1000 saved......and enough frequent fliers to get me there....so I am working on it! :p

    oops ... maybe i should have read your bio first :p I'd love to go myself, but I'm thinking New Zealand, since if it is a world wide release, it'll be one of the first to show it. It's closer, more affordable, and I can make a holiday out of it by touring the lotr locations as well :p

    Hubby suggested that,...but I want to meet some of my JC Dark Lord/Lady friends....and I figure I ain't getting any younger and this will be the last SW movie so why not?

    I don't know how to help you. I have Jelly Belly jelly beans... will that help? I've got a lot of them! Maybe you could make a Jelly Belly Boat! :D


    I'm gonna watch it right here in Sydney. When Kart tells me it's time to! ^.^/

    ^^ haha, good point foxy :p

    Actually, I do have friends in Sydney. Maybe I could go over there and make a fuss for the premiere. That should be interesting...

    I'll have to start planning. Speaking of which, I might just be over to melbourne for a bit before the year is out. The Australian Game Developers Conference will be held in December, and I think I might attend. But that's another story...

    I have an idea!

    Go to your daughter's school and get her to tell all the kiddies that her mum needs $1 from everyone so she can visit a wonderful world of SW and bring back heaps of goodies for everyone who pays. She also had to say that there are no refunds allowed, and that a goody is not guaranteed. Plus the kiddies are not allowed to tell anyone of the terrific deal because then the magic dollar won't work.

    Or....

    Er, nevermind. :p

    You could always sell lots and lots of fundraiser Freddos. They work really well :) I know I'd buy lots ;)

    I remember selling them for a few months to raise money for a school excursion to New Caledonia. In the end I didn't end up going, so I was left with a whole lot of fundraiser money.
    Helped pay for my first semester's worth of HECS this year, so it's all good. All those people helped me ;)

    That's actually a good idea. You could raise quite a lot with it, but I'm not sure how you get permission for the fundraising.

    I loooove freddos. =P~

    I think "Please Sir, can I sell frogs to go see a Star Wars movie in the US?" line may not work :p

    Hmmm...

    You could always dress up as a crazy Emperor's Hand and hold up your next FF meeting and get them to finance your trip...for the good the FF of course :p

    So if A-D starts charging us for our next FF meeting I'll know why :D

    Hey Skate, did you see the pictures of our last FF meeting? A-D would have a tough time holding us up. Even though she bought the weaponary, we were able to disarm her easily enough :p

    You should walk around retirement homes dressed up like someone from Legacy and sell fake raffle tickets.

    The old and infirm are stupid and generally have lots of disposable income, what's one less course of antibiotics to them?

    I think the nurses working there will complain when they start dropping like flies. :p

    I'm with the 'sell your soul' idea. :D

    Don't sell your soul, sell someone elses!

    Not mine though, don't even think about it, I've got it safeguarded.
