    Well, feel free to stop by our store in Abington, only one town over..
    I'm usually there every Sat and Sunday if you want to meetand talk shop.
    The store is usually pretty sporatic as far as business is concerned, so I usually have plenty of time.

    Shawn, I had a friend who was a hardcore paintball player and I was even the "target" at his "booth" at the Brockton Fair, but after being said "target," I don't think paintball would be an optimum choice of sport/hobby for me...I'll stick w/ tenpin bowling. [face_laugh]

    Ha, fair enough. But feel free to stop by for SW related reasons too.. I won't make you buy anything or participate in any paintball activities. :D

    Hey, everyone! Is Comic Con on the 15th too, or only the 16th?

    Yeah, just the 16th unfortunately, If it were the 15th too I'd probably be able to make it.

    I may be out now for Sunday. I still have some items I need to take care of with the house we bought and since I have to work Saturday I will probably end up doing the work on Sunday. I will keep yall posted though if something changes.

    Does 12ish work for everyone? Chris and Jim, if I'm looking at the right train, you guys will get to Back Bay around 11:38? And Jeff would get in around 12:25 on his train? Is anyone else taking a train that we should take into account?

    Meeting outside the entrance seems like a good idea. I don't know if the cell numbers I have for people are current, but if you still have me in your phones, my number hasn't changed since before I left a couple years ago. In case anyone needs to reach me for whatever reason. :)

    It was cool seeing everyone again (Chris, Jim, Roseanna, Jeff, etc). It was definitely a good time. I do believe Spencer enjoyed himself as well. Especially when he saw Roseanna again he was all smiles once he knew who she was. Plus he had a good time with Jim as well. I want to thank Jim for helping me out with the stroller once the cub got tired of it. Also thank you goes out to Chris's gf(sorry I forgot the name right now) for tying Spencer's shoes a couple times. I think he did it on purpose to get her attention. lol

    Anyways, I am thinking about having people over to my new place next month probably at the end of the month. Could be early May who knows. I know Drew does the KY derby so we will see once what happens.

    Well there were some dealers selling collectibles.

    One dealer had vintage Kenner carded 12 back figures and other carded vintage Kenner SW figures the prices were a little high.

    I met Carmine Infantino who is a legendary comic artist who started his career in the 1950's.

    He signed a few of my SW Marvel Comics that he was an artist on.

    It was great to see the turnout for this meet and I know with the warmer weather that hopefully we will get the out more during the next 6 months.

    Nice to see Fonger after a few years. Also glad Jeff was able to make it to one of our meets and brought Beth with him.

    Jorge, little Spencer is growing up so quick, wow!

    So April will be coming up and we can see what we would like to do maybe or wait until May?

    Hope to see everyone again soon.

    good to meet and re-acquaint w/everyone1 as well as meet some "new to me" folx. i'm surprised many of you remember the Fonger =P.

    yeah i know i haven't been around the last few yrs (i was working fulltime+going to school fulltime, but am done now =P).

    but even during that time i think went to quite a few meets imho back when yodachick, karma were around. i moved my speakers to their new house and we watched the entire saga I-VI including the clone wars 2D cartoon between II&III =P. it was during 2005 when ROTS just came out. lightning caused our screening of ep3 to be blacked out... fortunately i had "backup" =P. i think by the time ep5&6 rolled around we all fell asleep =). it was a good time had by all.

    we talked about doing that every year... but obviously it's been 3 yrs since.

    unfortunately i don't space in my mini-condo to host such an event or else i'd've been inviting ya'll consistently!

    if people are willing to lend their homes, i'm willing to 'move' my speakers yet again. will need @least a white wall.

    there'll be nothing to stop us this time... (except a lack of event space ;).

    IIRC, I was awake for the whole thing, Fonger, but yeah, that was a blast. Might PM YodaChick to say hi and ask how everything's been since.

    WTF is that about? Is it some kind of marketing campaign for the new Batman movie?

    I do believe it was a marketing stunt. There was a group outside the con campaigning for Harvey. They gave away buttons, stickers, etc. They even had some homeless gentle all fired up with their speeches. Pretty comically I thought.
