    [face_laugh] Have you seen those Lost City-somthing children's books? I didn't know they existed until Kitt told me. 8-} Palpy has offspings! OMG!!! Oh the horror! [face_shocked] 8-}

    The worst EU book I ever read was Courtship of Princess Leia. Luckily, the details of it have been purged from my mind, but here's what I remember (warning: spoilers) :

    Leia: Oh, a real life prince! With his own planet and he's really rich! I'm sorry Han, I know we had a bit of fun in the past, but you can't compete with a PRINCE!!!

    Han: Well, then I guess I'll just have to abduct you!!!

    Chewie: Rrroowwww [translation: Leia, do you want me to beat this psychotic stalker previously known as Han Solo into a pulp?]

    Leia: No, that's okay, I don't mind being abducted. I'm sure my new boyfriend will rescue me. (giggles)

    (cut to the end)

    Han: Guess what Leia! I've just discovered I'm actually a prince.

    (cue laughter)

    Han: No, it's true, I swear! I'm the prince of Corellia!

    Leia: Well, then, as long as you're a prince, then that has satisfied my shallow snobby taste in men. Let's get married!!

    (everyone lives happily ever after)

    The moral? Don't let male sci-fi writers attempt to write a romance novel.

    My God, now I remember more than I want to about that book. [face_plain] The way he wrote some of the scenes was [face_eek]. Remember when Leia first kissed that Prince-type person? :D That'll give Kitt a good nightmare. [face_silly[

    Been a while since I've posted & couldnt be bothered going through the boards to find the date for the Auckland Swap Meet.

    Sp, my question is, when is the Auckland Swap Meet?

    Cheers.

    From page 1 of this topic ...
    Grey Lynn Community Centre (474 Great North Road, Grey Lynn) is confirmed for October 12th


    Gee, I don't know. Young people today. In my day we used to have to trawl through hundreds of K of mono-coloured text using a 2400baud modem to find old message details. ;)

    Hi,

    Excuse my gate-crashing, but...regarding the Papatoetoe swap meet: SAMRC stands for something like South Auckland Miniature/Model Racing Club. As far as I know, they predominantly deal with remote control and slot cars, and are unlikely to have anything near the range of Star Wars and Sci-Fi collectibles that we will have in Grey Lynn (but then, I'm biased on this matter ;)).

    They do say Toy Fair, so they MAY have some Star Wars toys amongst that, but if you have to choose only one to go to I'd stick with Grey Lynn since that's being held by Sci-Fi and Fantasy people. :)

    Yeah, I'm hoping to be there, but unfortunately I have the lowest priority when it comes to use of the car around here. It starts at 1:30, but does anyone know how long it goes on?
