    Ha! Jedi Mind Tricks on me...I don't think so.

    You walk around with feigned interest pretending to know what you're looking at.

    Well, I don't read comics per say and i'm looking forward to it. If picking up the occasional issue of Star Wars Tales counts as reading comics, well, okay I read them. ;)

    Those of you coming down who will be there Wednesday night, we are having a fanforce dinner at Seaport Village. The dinner will cost no more than $10 which is quite reasonable. Please let me know if you plan on coming down.

    To help you find our booth this year, here is a map of the Comic Con floor with key Star Wars locales color-coded:

    YJ Most likely taking the Amtrak with me and most likely sharing a room at whatever hotel my mom decides on.

    Zar Coming down for a day. (I think)

    GB Coming down for a day. (I think)

    Correct me if any of the information is wrong. :)
