    Stackpole made a good point. The book club threads are starting to become more popular, so it deserves it's own continuing thread. Nothing up my sleeve, and presto...here it is: The Official Book Club Thread.

    First item of business for the new thread: a new name. "Book Club" is getting kind of old. It was funny at first because of the Fight Club reference, but that's long since worn thin.

    So, everyone make some suggestions. Funny, serious, whatever. I'll take them, run a poll and we'll have our official name.

    Good luck.

    I think Saturdays don't work out for many people so they can only come to book club. Or thats just an excuse... :)

    I think despite what some people say, they really like taking pictures of people in cowboy suits. ;)

    That was the best low blow ever... [face_laugh]

    Since you brought it up, I could assume you'd like to come and put the cowboy hat on? [face_mischief]

    BTW... Pat liked the idea of cowboy weddings, so long as pearl the pig could be a brides maid. Adam, If you would lower yourself to that level, we would definitely be interested.

    It's no joke, a cowboy wedding is good money and good publicity. :)

    A name for the book club? Uhmmmmmmmm...an idea is forming. How about...."The Republic Readers". "Jedi Scholars"? "Jedi Historians". Or....how about...."The Star Wars Book Club"?

    Oh, this is off the topic, but I thought that I would share this funny story from my week. I was flirtting with this really pretty blonde the other night as I was purchasing the complete 4th season of Deep Space Nine. She asked how old I was (she's 20) and I replied in a deep, low voice..."How old do you think I am?" She replied, 36!!!!! Egads, I'm only 32. Anyway, I was afraid that my DVD collection I bought would make her think I was a geek. So, I came up with a great cover story: I said it was for my dog, Molly, to watch! I'll probably see her next week as she works at the store that I was at. Fortunately, next week is when the complete third season of Babylon 5 comes out. That is a show for cool, intellectual, sci-fi geeks :)

    Peace,

    Okay, after this latest episode, along with the talking steamed crustacean one, we can safely say Edric has no game with the ladies...or very little anyway.

    You guys are on your own with the name too!

    Well, since you don't show up for the meetings, we didn't really expect you to have a substantial contribution to naming the club :p

    I'm not really sure who Agent_Sith is (update your profile!), but I though "A Bunch of Guys, no Girls, and a Bookshop" was clever.

    Come on, there are some creative people in our club. We have an author, a guy that comes up with all kinds of theories on SW, and a guy that thought up cowboy weddings, not to mention the twisted genius that is Stackpole. SOMEBODY COME UP WITH A NAME!

    Hey, I've got game with the ladies :) Some find my nerdiness very SEXY!

    Book club name ideas:

    The Bookwalkers
    Bookers :)
    Tales of the Star Wars Readers
    The Readers of All Things Star Wars
    Star Wars Readers
    Book Raiders
    Raiders of the EU Star Wars Books
    The Geek Council
    The Council of Geeks


    As you may be able to deduce, my day was really bad. The only thing good that came out of it was my genius idea for a new superhero. By day, he is a mild mannered banker. However, after eating a mutated TUMS, he is now and forever know as "TUMSMAN"!!!!! His super power is the ability to create and shoot different sizes of TUMS from his wrists. His sidekick is the every resourceful "POSTINOTEBOY". His super power is the ability to ride the air currents with his giant posti-note.

    Help me.....I'm not well (curls up in a fetal position and begins to cry.....)

    Later,

    TUMSMAN
