    I've got mine, but don't know if it would fit or not. The tabbards are a bit long on me so it might work. Just add black pant and boots/shoes.

    Kev- got your Muley Big Scoop T-shirt. I'll bring it by tonight.

    Thanks for looking out for us on the shirt, man. I'd let him just go in his own feet until I make some kind of cover that looks boot-ish or shoe-ish. I might just one day check the mascot costumer sites and see if they have anything already made to order, y'know? But, it'd have to be big feet.

    They are starting sign-up for volunteers at 9:30 and want people in their places by 10:30. The event is 11-4. I plan on being on time (of course) and maybe earlier to let MuleySuit walk around some to visit with the volunteers. Oh, and Muley is going "in case" the moderators don't show up again.

    I hope so!!

    Anyhow, I grabbed up some posters and stuff from Anna yesterday, and I've handed out a few. While I'm working at Total Image tomorrow I might try to put some out up there in Lakeland, it's not far from Agricenter.

    Sleepy time now. Sinus med's knocking me out.

    Oh, and Lindy said they might have Muley on with them at Fox 13 IF they get a date and time.

    I was asked to send a list of folks who would be participating for our group. I need to get it in within the next few days. Anybody else coming to this, or will I be the Lone Jedi?

    Could be, Tim. Are Sal and Yoda going to be there?

    Skip- sorry you can't make it. Really dug the snowtrooper armor at AdvCon. If you know anyone that's in the Memphis area, or wouldn't mind driving in from Jackson or Nashville for the afternoon have them give Anna a shout- anna@rmhmemphis.org

    It's official: Set those VCR's and prepare yourself! Don't know what he's supposed to be doing yet, but Muley will appear on Fox 13 this Friday, 7/30/04, along with the folks from the RMH to discuss the Big Scoop!!

    So I take it that Muley will have to wear a Big Scoop T-shirt? No way to get him in an SMT Hockey Jersey for the TV crew? :p

    Sal just called me. He'll be joining us as well for Big Scoop. Don't know if he wants to bring Yoda or not. I know that he was concerned with Yoda's safety, and that he really doesn't transport that well. I'll leave that up to him. (Sal... not Yoda.)

    Anybody else joining us? I have an extra Jedi costume available!

    Anyone?

    Anyone?

    I just forwarded an email I got from RMH about Big Scoop to everyone who expressed interest in participating this weekend. If you didn't get it, please let me know and I'll send it again.

    I would love to go if I can fit in the Jedi costume.

    Chuck: Hate to tell you, but Grace has already asked to use my other Jedi costume. But, never fear- Tim the insane costumer is here! Between Traci's old jedi costume (no, we're not asking you to dress as Barriss!), and some spare costume bits I have laying around the house, I think we might be able to come up with something for you. If you have any kakhi or black pants and some boots or other appropriate footwear, we should be able to accommodate you nicely. The only thing I know I don't have an extra of is a Jedi belt, so if you have a thick belt handy, I know we could come up with something. Give me a shout and we'll work something out. I'll also forward that email to you from RMH about volunteering for Big Scoop.

    Excellent! Sounds like the Big Scoop is going to turn into another SMT party! Glad you're joining us, Kell!

    I have a pair of leopardskin boxer shorts (don't ask) that you can use for the Slave Luke costume, Lin. ;)

    Lin, I hope your Luke slave bikini is a one piece I hope. I would worry if you actually had a 2 piece bikini!!

    It's not a bikini if it's not a two piece- or should we just call it jedi butt-floss! :)

    Dear Lord, I just pictured that. Oh, my aching head!

    You going to get to show off your Jedi costume at all, Lin, or will you be stuck inside a furry character suit all day?

    I'll actually be running around taking pics in my RMH volunteer costume. Last year I was 'Linny The Pooh' for about 30min-hour and was sweating my a** off!

    Don't know if I'll be in one this year or not. Todd won't have his costumes there. Wish we had picked up that Trooper armor in NC. Patrick would've been the pefect size for it...

    Wonderpants, PLEASE don't be loaning out your underwear. I already have bad, terrible visions of Lin in a bikini. Then again, I'm running around in an ass-suit.

    See everyone in a few hours! Looks like we're going to have a good SMT crowd, with Sal, Tim C., Kell, John, Grace, Jay, and myself in SW costumes, Kevin assing it up as Muley, and Lin just being the character he always is ( :p ).

    I meant to make it to the Volunteer meeting tonight, but missed it thanks to the kidney stone that hit at around noon today. So, unfortunately, I have no information to pass on to anyone. However, if it's like last year, all we'll do is participate in the charity character photo booth, and when we're not in there, walking around having a good time with the crowd.

    Thanks to everyone who turned out for this year's Big Scoop! We had a good time despite not being photographed as much as last year. (Of course, we were missing the 8-14 year old age group that we had last year, too. That, and the Costume Nazi who was running everything didn't seem to help much.)

    Lin told me Saturday that we've been invited to do another event by a local radio station. (Lin will have to fill me in on the details again. Obviously, my short-term memory is shot!)
