    I was thinking of this:
    Pleated Fabric
    but all my projects are sort of on hold right now.

    And happy belated birthday to our N-Pop!

    Hey all!

    Sorry I have been MIA so long. Welcome to the newbies and congrads GentleBant! How is everyone doing? I have been busy job hunting (which is most of it) and getting a few things together for Dragon Con (I really am behind on that). Where is this summer going?!

    I can't believe it has been ten years! Though I still remember seeing those flame gowns and falling in love with them. And watching the girls fight back. I know there was Leia in the Original Trilogy, but I was thrilled to see them retake the palace like that.

    And on a completely random note, has anyone else seen Fanboys?

    Just want to check in on the So-Cal handmaidens regarding the fires. From what little I know, I think you're not affected, but I just want to make sure.

    This is almost becoming an annual thing, isn't it?

    I have the DVD of Fanboys, but I've decided to wait until our next FF meeting. I think it's a lot funnier to see it with other nerds, compared to just sitting by yourself.

    Didn't get to see Fanboys, yet. Will though!

    Doing OK in my neck of the woods, fire-wise.

    Who's going to the SW Concerts?

    Well I had hoped that they would be in Europe for a while, since they started in London. Now apparently that's not the case. :(

    Also I'm having handmaidens interfering in my job at the moment. Or rather, I'm writing a summary from a conference on garden tourism, and one of the organisations that was talked about was the Royal Horticultural Society, of course abbreviated to RHS. Even their website is:rhs.org.uk Personally I much prefer our brave ladies, instead of flowers and plants.

    I have to agree with you, Obi Anne.

    I'm watching a Keira film, it's been very long since I did that. It's Love Actually, and usually it's the film I see around Christmas, but it's on TV and I'm down with a cold so I don't even have the energy to swap channel.

    Awesome! The only Keira movie I've watched is Pirates of the Carribean 1, 2, and 3.:p

    I would definitely recommened Bend it like Beckham, I think that's my favorite non-POTC film with Keira. Love Actually is better, but her part is pretty small and it's more of an ensemble cast. King Arthur has its good moments, but I don't think the Guinevere plot is one of those. (I spend most of KA just drooling over Clive Owen and Mads Mikkelsen).

    YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE:

    Hasbro has a new fan poll out for the fans :to cast their votes for their favorite character destined to be made into an action figure" and Dormé, Cordé, Queen Jamilla, and Queen Apailana are on the list!

    Like the Senate has a fondness of saying "Vote now! Vote now!"

    They're up against some pretty stiff competition, and I'm not sure how many times you are allowed to vote (you don't have to register for anything), but vote as often as you can.

    It is possible to at least vote more than once...[face_mischief]

    Greetings! I've been lurking in the shadows of handmaiden fandom for the last 9 years, having only recently rediscovered the Council Forums and this wonderful page. It's about time this is made official! I've been a handmaiden fan since Episode I. My friends and I took handmaiden names in high school, and we still use those names for each other. I've watched your community from afar, so now, with this introduction, may I join it?



    I, Jadia, pledge my full support to ensure that the RHS threads will continue in a fun but clean manner, in order to ensure our respect to the handmaidens whom we admire and adore.

    As an official member of this thread, I will give my 100% support in order to make sure that the RHS continues in a fashion that is acceptable to everyone involved.

    So, who's going to Celebration 5 in Orlando, August 12-15 next year?

    Hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving last week had a good holiday. :)

    That's right after my daughter's birthday, the first week of preschool, and the week before school starts for my husband and son...plus, it's a really far away location...

    Whoa . . . been a while . . .

    Welcome Jadia! Amazing; some ten years later (!?) we're still finding new recruits . . .:D

    C-Five: absolutely maybe! There seems to be a strong tremor in the FanForce of the NYC System to go to it, but the notion of at the Florida system -- in August, no less -- I usually jump to hyperspace in the opposite direction when it comes to heat and humidity . . . [face_tired][face_sick]

    I'm going to be there, even if my body is more suited to Hoth-like climates. I really hope we can have a RHS meet again, wouldn't be a celebration without it.

    I hear you, Obi-Anne, about the Hoth-like conditions. Sounds like you're a Michigander too? It's a wonderful 21 degrees without the windchill right now. Lovely

    Thanks for the welcomes! What fun a Celebration would be... don't know if it'll swing, but who knows what will happen in the next few months? Agreed, Piett - Florida in August? Gracious, what were they thinking? But hey, Star Wars is Star Wars...

    Actually I'm from Sweden, and at the moment we have around -20 c here, I think that's around -4 f, but still I prefer that to sweating.

    When it comes to Celebration I'm planning to spend most of the time indoors anyway, and I'm in a hotel just on the other side of the convention centre. AC for the win.
