    I thought that we might as well have a board where we could post random things that popped into our heads and thought that maybe someone else might care.

    I was shopping at Target today and discovered that they had accidentaly put out the new line of Lego sets that aren't supposed to be released until next year (basically in the next 2 weeks :)). Someone who worked there said that the sets were going to be removed until the time when they were supposed to be there. Just thought I would put it out there if anyone was interested.

    If you're going to go shopping all day (two days in a row), don't wear high-heeled boots! Your toes might be sore later.

    If you're going to go shopping and decide to leave your coat in the car, make sure you get your keys out of your pocket before you lock the doors!!!!!

    Marty...I bought my first SW Lego the other day. I picked up Vader with the Emperor. If I start small, the rest will come easy!

    Is it me or do we need to get a convention in the area that we could go to? There are always events in the south and west coast, but very little in our direction. That would be cool to have one in Buffalo that we could help out at.

    Conventions you say?

    Here is just a sample of some of the SF conventions in the area.

    [link=http://www.ad-astra.org/]Ad-Astra[/link]
    March 21-23, Toronto

    [link=http://www.eeriecon.org/]EerieCon[/link]
    April 11-13, Niagara Falls, NY
    (The Fan GoHs are old friends of mine! Bonus!!)

    Oh heck there are bunches, not the least of which include Toronto Trek (the largest fan-run media convention around), and the BIG one, The World Science Fiction Convention being held this year in Toronto!

    Look at this [link=http://www.geocities.com/jengacons/]list of conventions[/link] yourself.

    So if there aren't that many Star Wars conventions in the Buffalo area, does anybody have any ideas on how to attract Lucasfilms attention and try to get one in the area?

    ...Wait. This topic is starting to take a definitive form...need a random thought...

    um...does anyone know what those little knobby things on the side of a female Twi'Leks head are? Are they ears or something? I need to know for a fanfiction I'm writing about Aayla Secura.

    Ugh. Horrible joke there Bobachris. Although I would have gone with saying zits instead of chicken pox.

    Hmmm...maybe that's why Anakin winds up wearing the Darth Vader costume...he gets a case of chicken pox and doesn't want to give it to Leia and Luke, so he dons the life support suit...and just finds it too comfortable to take off.

    ...Or maybe the zipper gets stuck. :)

    Is it just me, or is the thought of a fully armored Darth Vader bouncing Luke on his knee hilarious? :D

    Parallax,
    If im not mistaken, the "bumps" on the female Twi'leks are outer protection for the ears. Hope that helps.

    ...By the Force. What have I unleashed?

    Well, so long as it's not Jar Jar Binks doing the Monster Mash... :)

    And thanks Tobi_Daala (Sorry if I spelled that wrong)I figured it was protection of some sort for the ears. I wonder why only the females seem to have it though?

    ...Combined with that last pelvic thrust post, this could be leading into territory not proper for our younger participants... :eek:

    I feel your pain Zara!! Ten years ina grocery store and I could be here all day telling my stories. My favorites were the people who asked if you work there. Can't they see you are in the store uniform and normal customers don't walk around with a name tag while rearranging the shelves. How about the people that claim they bought something last week when you know for a fact the store hasn't carried the item in a year since the company discontinued it. The best liner from the customers is when they threaten that they will go to the competitor, but you see them every single day after that because they have nothing better to do but be a pest . Or the peole who decide to do their shopping on a holiday and then tell you it's a shame you have to work on a holiday!!!

    I have to stop or we won't have any space left for others to post!!

    I'll be totally geeky and answer that.

    There is a feedback loop built into the nervous system basically that lets the brain know its you that is touching yourself.

    Its there so that everytime you do touch anything you don't get surprised!

    Since your brain knows its you that doing the tickling the reaction is muted.
