    * is distracted by her husband DarthUncle being around for a couple of days

    I also had to work very hard the past days, multi-tasking. Reports needed to be written, analyses to be made. And "Mother´s Day" is coming up, so I also had to pull something out of my sleeve together with my colleague. I think we are nicely on time with everything and still have happy children.

    Not what, but who: my mother... I was 6 in 1977 and there was this space movie with big crowds in every theater. The rest is history :)

    Nice. :) Okay, do you have certain aspects that appeal to you? How are you taking the EU news?

    Not a fan of the EU, but I understand why so many are upset. Read some books, not impressed. I'd rather stay with the movies.

    I'm with you, Rickern. I nevr got involved with the EU because all of those years ago, Lucas stated that it was not canon. I had a feeling way back then that something like this would happen.

    Yep. Don't care too much if they're all about Luke & Co having thrilling adventures in space. But if it's about killing Chewbacca, thanks no. I prefer Lucas dealing with it himself.

    Actually originally the EU was sold as official that's why some are pretty upset. I am a fan of elements but I gave up on it years ago. I'm not really interested in the Mouseverse. I may see E7 for my 'boys' and I may read Tarkin just because I'm curious but likely I won't put any stock into anything.

    I don't know about that. I just remember reading an interview with Lucas, probably 30 years ago, where he said the EU books, comics, cartoons, basically anything but the movies, was not canon. But lets face it, its not like Lucas never contradicted himself. haha!

    Boba Geek: He certainly has. :p That's part of why I think canon is just a headache. To each their own, it's all in approach. He has maintained only the films are valid to him for awhile though. I just hope people don't ditch the LU stuff as worthless needlessly.
