It's hard to believe it's almost November!
Warning signs from the future.
Hmmmm, fascinating CBM.
I got picked to march in the Rose Parade. I got picked to march in the Rose Parade. I got my letter in the mail today. It's all official, Lucasfilm Letterhead and all. I have to sign some waviers and then send it back before the 17th.
Oh my gosh, that is awesome! Congrats! Are you going to save the letter?
Well some people said they would frame their's, but I'll probably just keep it in a photo album or something.
The bad side is that I will probably not go home for Christmas this year. My family is going to be upset. At least they can now watch me on TV.
Oh my gosh, that is so cool!!! I'm so happy for you! Congratulations SR!! It's a bummer that this might stop you from going home at Christmas. That's a huge down side. Hopefully your family will understand what an opportunity this is and support you. I can't tell you how excited I am for you!!
I think it's beyond time for another check-in w/you...but I'll be gone this weekend. FYI, Jesus says no more $257 Delta. *tear* I'm sorry. (that would've kicked ass!)
That's great news, SR. Even more incentive for going out to the parade this year.
YEAH SR! That's fantastic! We'll definitely be out there cheering you on!
On a side note, I won a $30 gift certificate from one of my podcasts. I need help picking something though. It's at Battlestar Online. I'm leaning towards a t-shirt because I love t-shirts but I have so darned many but none of the toys interest me except for the bust.
WHOA, SR, this is GREAT! Congratulations! Since the parade route is so close to my home, I'll be the one throwing the tortillas at you and covering you in Sillystring. JK.
Maybe the "Official Companion" books? Those can serve as memorable souvenirs.
Wow! Great SR! We'll be sure to look for you from the sidelines. Oh wait, you'll look just like all the rest of the Stormtroopers. That's awesome though!! Can I be your friend?
JR, you can be my friend. You don't even have to give me things. I'll even let you touch the armor after I walked five miles in it.
One bad thing is that I'm going to have to bunk with strangers. At least three of them. It's dorm room college style. I don't know how we are going to arrange this. I know some of the guys, but not all of them.
I never watch the Rose Parade anymore...but, I will this year!
I will be watching, too. I think I'll still be in Minnesota for winter break at that time. But my family will think it's so cool that someone from my "Star Wars club" (as they call it ) is in the parade.
I really have to thank DB for all this though. I was just sitting at home one Saturday when the phone rang and it was him asking me if I had some money to buy a Stormtrooper costume. I thought "no, not really, but it would be cool". So here I am a year later. Good thing I listened to DB.
Congratulations SR!!! Fabulous news! Will definitely be seeing the Parade in person!
SR - are you going to post this good news on LU.N?
Congrats SR! Wow, you'll have to make up some signal so we know who you are in the parade! like a LAFF gang sign or something, lol.
On a side note, won't be around this weekend (as if any of us are) but I'm going on a cruise to mexico today until monday. Tata!
Have fun, APL!
You da man! Congrats!
Hope everyone remembered to set their clocks back...
... and it'll soon be Halloween, so here's my annual contribution:
Wow that is a cool pumpkin! Here is one that I carved on Wednesday. Not as cool, but I haven't had much practice.
