    Sweet! I hope you can make it, and don't forget to bring all the Dragon Con goodies you can as I think I am going to go next year and I want to see what all you guys were up to.

    ... goodies... I was supposed to get goodies, why didn't anyone tell me this stuff. You know I spent a little bit of money, but I have basically nothing to show for it...

    That's usually the story at cons. They're sort of a disposable income black hole, but oh well they're fun anyway. It's no biggie that you didn't bring back anything to show off but I'm sure you probably have pictures or stories or something, so as long as you share it's all good.

    Oh, and did anyone see Minacia or the Atlanta FanForce or any of the other FF groups while they were out there? If not it's cool, but it sounded like at least the Atlanta FF had a dinner so I was just curious.

    I saw some of them, but unfortunately I didn't introduce myself... I am not snotty I was just wrapped up with the whole experience, and the only time I was realy near their table it was during the droid hunt.

    I have no idea if I met any of them. I was saying hello to people left and right. I'm crazy like that. Actually I didn't make it to the special Hothlanta events :( Although I did do mostly star wars related things durring the weekend. Unfortunatly I didn't have any spending money (didn't last dcon either) so I've returned empty handed, except for all the memories. I've got a wonderful story I'll be happy to tell about getting sucked in and stuck in an escalator while dresssed as a Twi'lek.

    Which tail got stuck in the escalator, the one on the dress or the ones on your head?

    Sorry, couldn't resist it! :D

    Hey, guys, i just wanted to let you know I might be a little late tomorrow, I have to work until 7:30. I'm so jealous of you guys that made it to Dragon*Con. I was planning on going, but that's a long story. . .

    Well I'm glad that everyone managed to make it out (plus some new faces.. yay!) and I hope everybody had a good time Friday. Now if there was just some kind of way to make everyone in the restaurant besides us mute, or perhaps some kind of noise-canceling bubble we could erect around our section, we'd be all set..

    Then again if we had that stuff, we wouldn't have heard opera girl. Seriously, I should have given that kid some pizza. :_|

    I'll post up the next meeting date/thread by or before Monday, and while I think most of you know that I will be working, if you guys want to set up something for a trilogy dvd release gathering, go for it. This board is here for you guys as much as it is for me so if you're planning to hang out at Wal-Mart for three hours anyway, why go it alone?

    Those are from Hastings at midnight... eventually there will be pics from Best Buy as well. The video is some of the troops teaching a Best Buy employee that Star Wars is better then Star Trek.

    It's cool that you've managed to get your mug up on both the official site and the official magazine, so you are our most famous member by far.

    Can I get your autograph? :D
