    Got 'em, got 'em, need 'em, got 'em....
    Action figures, puzzle pieces, burger king mugs, shampoo. There's a lot of Star Wars merchandise floating about and what isn't in Crazy Mike's closet is in our hands. All of us have stuff we're desperately after (Oh if only I could find those R2D2 mittens from '82) and all of us have stuff that we really would like to dispose of (The Ric Olie beach towel seemed neat when I bought it, but now...).

    I've got the peanut butter, you've got the jelly, let's get together and make some sandwiches.

    It's the first ever Toronto Long Line Swap Meet. We'll gather together, barter and trade portions of our collections for the stuff that we truly, absolutely want.

    What's more, it's a Star Wars game day! Grab your favourite Star Wars game and bring it along. Jedi Epic Duels. The Queen's Gambit. Escape the Death Star. Heck - even if the game isn't related to Star Wars, bring it along. We'll have a rousing game of 'Kill Dr. Lucky' in the works.

    I'll start to sing out the Swedish Chef's song as I barby-Q yummy burgers and dogs for us all. We'll have veggie burgers and dogs available as well, but please let me know that you'll be taking that route so I can purchase enough for everyone.

    We're going to take a page out of YJN's book and adopt the 'JarJar', a general kitty from which we can pay for events like this that benefit everyone in the group. We ask that everyone throw a minimum of $5 into the jar to pay for your meal and drinks. Anything left over will be held onto for a future Toronto Long Line event.

    To top off the day's events, we will head over to the AMC for a digital viewing of Attack of the Clones.

    Friends. Fun. Star Wars. Could we ask for anything more?

    The Plan?

    When: Saturday, June 15th 2:00PM
    Where: Tragic's place in Mississauga (Private Message or email for directions and travel options via public transit)
    Cost: a minimum donation of $5 to the JarJar to help cover your chow

    The event is open to one and all, but please let us know in advance if you are coming as it helps us know how much to buy. Post your rsvp here or send me an email.
    See you all on the 15th!

    I'll be there, sounds like an awesome time.

    Now to get down into my Star Wars bins in the basement and see what I have to trade...a vintage Jawa with vinyl cape, and all I want is an EPI comm tech reader?

    Kat must check work schedule.

    If Kat is available, Kat will be there with bells on. (Okay...maybe not.)

    CURSE MY METAL BODY - I'M TOO FAR AWAY TO TAKE PART IN THIS!!!!!

    Damn. Damn, damn, damn, damn! I stake claim on anything left over that people don't want to take back home.

    'Cept the bags of garbage. And the half eaten hot dogs.
