    * Swedes really like muffins.
    * Swedes have really good English accents - I'm told this is because it's practically the same language. Agree/disagree? :p
    * All Swedes love Darth Vader and his sheep-shearing habits.
    * Swedes learn a lot more Star Wars drinking songs at their FanForce meetings than the rest of us, apparently. They are also good at singing loudly. I was ridiculously hoarse yesterday morning from all the drunken singing at the Westin.
    * Swedes get to go to twice as many conventions as the rest of us because they travel to both the US convention and the European one. No fair. :p
    * Swedes like to take mass transit even when going somewhere as far away as Disneyland, which is cool.
    * Swedes gave me two Swedish coins and now I am going to keep them forever and ever as a souvenir. :D

    Maybe these observations do not apply to Swedes in general, but they definitely apply to the FFS:ers I know who went to C.IV. :D
    I was startled the first time I heard Obi Anne speak English in her Irish accent (due her having spent a year living in Ireland).

    .. and don't get me started on the drinking songs. ;)

    What do you mean not all Swedes are alike? :p

    I want to go back to CIV already. :(

    We miss you too!!! And I must say that your observations are very accurate!

    Kee speaking (too lazy to login, you know...): Hey, we'll send you the lyrics and at CV we'll sing together - even louder! Muhahaha! Fear us, sensitive ears everywhere. Oh, and treasure those Swedish coins you should, because... uh... because they're good for warding off ugly vampires? Right...

    I'm still a little hoarse. It's been two days. Way too much singing. :(

    I never heard the Obi-Wan song before.

    Hanging out with you Swedish guys (and girls) was a blast!

    Hopefully I'll see you at CE as well. [face_batting]

    LIKE I SAID BEFORE IN THE JCC

    4 NIGHT STAY AT THE BONAVENTURE: $480.48

    ROUNDTRIP FLIGHT FROM MEMPHIS TO L.A.: $286.00

    STAR WARS C4 BADGE: $125.00

    HANGING OUT WITH ALL OF YOU GUYS: WORTHLESS

    HAVING FANFORCE SWEDEN (ABBA) BURST INTO SONG DURING THE POD PARTY MONDAY NIGHT: PRICELESS!

    There are some things money can't buy

    FOR EVERYTHING ELSE THERES

    I think that sounded better than I feared.
