    The chances of rain keep decreasing, which is good news. :)


    The bad news is that the wind is about 10° colder than the air and it's been kicking up mighty fiercely. :(

    I saw Kelsey on E! News. They were talking about GL being the grand marshal, and then they showed people trying on the uniforms and outfits and she was in one of the pictures. Yay.

    I'm back!

    And tired.

    And pooped out and sick.

    And I never got to see Kelsey except as the float drove off around the corner and we went the other way!!!!!!!!!!!!! Grrr. But she was so cute! The other Padmé's were only doing the serene royal wave, very controlled, but Kelsey had a big ol' smile on her face and was happily waving to the crowds. Go, Kelsey! (I was supposed to march next to her, but got changed by Mary as we lined up that very morning!)

    BUT...wow!!!!!!!!

    and, well, ow...

    Lots of thoughts to process and memories to write about, soon.

    Hope Matt had fun as a member of EEEP! (Ewok Emergency Evacuation Personnel)

    My biggest surprise was at check in being told George had decided I should wear a handmaiden flame gown from the archives. WOW!

    I would have done a happy dance on the spot if I could have.

    /yawn


    Back to real life. Have yet another poopy diaper to go change.

    More later!
    And Matt, and Kelsey, I want to hear more from you. Kelsey updated her blog last night, I see.

    I'm still trying to get mine to load. Kelsey and Josylnn, it was great finally meeting you both! Once my pictures load, I'll post them. You both looked beautiful!

    Matt, sorry I didn't get a chance to actually meet you, but I hope you had a great time at the parade and got lots of pictures as well! :D

    Here they are!!

    First of all, I saw all you guys and it made me happy.

    Second of all, you sounded way suggestive in that R2 comment.

    Third, I'm loving the cookie on N's face.

    Fourth, that last picture scares the crap out of me.

    I'll do my best to link some pics here sometime. I didn't actually get to take too many since I was working constantly. I got a few though and a bunch of other people are supposed to be sending links.

    If anyone happens to find highish quality video taken from a fan (not from TV) of the the Star Wars part of the parade send me a link. I didn't get to see anything out of my little hole. I was looking at Ewok feet for 3 hours.

    That NBC footage was the best I've seen so far, thanks for that AquaRose. I didn't see Kelsey though. They didn't go to the other side of either of the floats.

    It sucks that I didn't get to meet you Miana Kenobi, apparently you found Kelsey in the lobby one of the few times we were separated.

    Congrats to Joslynn and her younglings for making Bantha Tracks!

    Though that first picture looks really familiar... ;)

    I saw that! I credited you in my write-up, but I noticed almost none of the photos got credited. I'm so embarrassed!

    BTW, that was a nice float-prep write up about you, Miana, in the last one, I believe. :~)

    It would be terrific if I could figure out why I'm no longer getting my issues of Insider...

    I think they're talking about the online Bantha Tracks. The last issue of the Insider came out in December I think and had Vader on it. If you got that then you're up to date.
