    Just wanted to say it was deffinately worth going into work late today. Even though i was sweating like a stuck pig in my vader suit, just the look on most of the kids faces when they saw us was well worth it and is the exact reason why I do this, to share the joy of star wars. :)

    3 DAYS!!!!!!

    Also just an idea cause ive done it in the past, have yall thought about maybe doing a StarWars type event at Fiesta Texas. Before 911 when i first made my vader suit i used to go there in costume and it was a big hit. Most of the people thought i worked for the theme park and took hundreds of pictures. It was the greatest fun. Of course after 911 they started forbidding people from entering the theme park with any kind of helmet or object that obscured thier face. BUt if we go through the theme park im sure wed be ok.. Like i said its just an idea :)

    See yall in 3 days :)

    The event was just amazing. Toys R Us had nothing but great things to say about us and they had numerous compliments from customers.

    We did good people. I was impressed at the turnout and the looks on the kids faces was well worth the effort.

    Like Yeah. It was great. You summed it up in one sentence. Or was that two sentences. I lost count.

    Lord Sinner Out

    "I will not fight you."

    "Give yourself to the dark side."

    "So you have a sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me, now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the dark side, then perhaps she will."

    "No!"

    And then the amazing lightsaber duel. Will Episode III duel top that one?

    I leave you with that question.

    First off Nick, shouldn't you be in school? Second, you thought the lightsaber duel in ROTJ was awesome? It was good, but the Maul, QUi-Gon, Obi-Wan duel made that look like Tranformers vs. Gobots!!

    No comparison. The Episode III duels (all 5 of them: Obi-Wan & Anakin vs. Dooku, Obi-Wan vs. Grievous, Mace, Aegen Kolar, Kit Fisto, Saesee Tinn vs. Palpatine, Yoda vs. Palpatine, and finally...the duel I have personally been waiting 26 years for...Anakin vs. Obi-Wan.) WILL ROCK THE BOX.

    'NUFF SAID.

    I'm done with school for the semester. I am trying to get in for the Summer semester but that doesn't start until like June or something like that.

    And yeah, I was just double checkin for an opinion on the duels. I know Episode III duels are going to be awesome and that the Episode I and II duels were way better than the ROTJ. I was seeing if anyone disagreed. What's your costume gonna look like. Are you gonna be a jedi, sith, or a stormtrooper. You can PM it to me if you want to. I just have to find out. You'd make a pretty awesome sith and jedi. A stormtrooper would also be rockin. However, that armor must get pretty heavy. I don't think I would survive as a stormtrooper.
    Oh, hey, I got a job at the library at UTSA only for a week. I'll be working 40 hrs but at least I'll be getting some money. Talk about cool aye.

    Check ya later.

    P.S. Darth Maul duel was a good one. Especially when Obi-Wan got in their and showed him who's boss. Jedi rock above all else man.
