    I'm not sure how many of us are coming up on the 28th but I'm sure a handful of us will. It should be a blast. I know I'm really looking forward to it. If you don't hook up with us in Vienna beforehand...watch for the Moisture Farm Co-Op t-shirts! :) I'm pretty sure one of us (prolly me at least) will be wearing one.

    What time does it all start? Which Smithsonian is it at? :) The Star Wars website link doesnt work anymore.

    I wanna get all my work done before I go so I can spend maximum time there. DD- Whats wrong with taking the Metro? It goes right there.

    It's in the Arts and Industries Museum. I think festivities start on Saturday at 10 AM; however, we don't particularly have to be there right then...

    Nothing's wrong with taking the Metro; that would be ideal. However, I don't really live near a Metro station, though I could use my monthly pass at the Circle Park at Tenleytown. If you wanna meet up, it'll have to be there. The one thing I don't care for is I'll be away from my car and there's not much good inexpensive food on the Mall.

    Let me know what's up.

    Mystery Sith- I feel your pain. I'm from NY but here at school in DC. Once I'm home, all I have to look forward to is when the Magic of Myth comes to Brooklyn in a few years. :(

    DD- Let me figure out what I have to do here and I'll get back to you probably on Wednesday or Thursday. You gonna dress up? :)

    Hey guys, we have revised our plans a little for the trip to DC from Richmond. We're gonna meet up in DC around 10am for the opening. Then we're having lunch at Planet Hollywood. For more details check out our site. http://www.moisturefarmcoop.com

    We'd love to meet you guys up there.

    I took some pictures down at the exhibit of the starfighter and some of the costumes.

    Okay, here are the first four. I'm gonna go back down maybe next week to shoot out my roll of film.

    So I'm looking at the pictures on TF.N of the Starfighter and then suddenly....THERES ME! Look over R2. Im wearing the black shirt with the red logo (its a Red Hot CHili Peppers logo). I have my arms crossed and I'm reading the panel. This is hysterical. I'm in some random guys picture. LOL. :D

    Not me, I was just hanging with them while we made our way to and from Planet Hollywood. :) I knew one of the troopers from ImagineCon last May in Norfolk...but I do plan to be a trooper soon enough.
