    Hey, thanks Blaine. I looked at the planning thread, but I can't think of anything right now. Most of my creative energies are going into my work right now. Since this is the social thread, a little about me. I've been a fan of Star Wars since the first movie. I still have my action figures and my M. Falcon from 1977.
    I also have the comic books of the original movie. :) It's a boy's life.

    Hey Jedi_Korea! :D

    Nice ... I only found out about SW when TPM was released. Somehow, I completely missed the SE. [face_blush]

    JK, I see you've met Xan! :)

    Don't worry about the planning thread. Whenever you have something you'd like to suggest for this board you can go ahead and post it there. :D

    Hmm, the movies...I actually loved them from the time I was about 12, I think. They showed the films on TV. :cool:

    I've waited nearly a decade for the sequels! [face_shocked]

    Xan, wanna throw a topic on the boards? ;)

    I do enjoy Star Wars. I want to get a good DVD player so I can get the Star Wars DVDs here and watch them. I hear there is a lot of info on them that you just cant get on a video tape.

    I felt exactly the way you did JK. :) I finally saved up and got myself a DVD player. :D

    Yes, there is a lot of info on the DVD-I got AOTC on DVD. :cool: There are deleted scenes, documentaries, photo galleries and interviews with the actors, GL himself and others. :cool:

    And the picture quality is unbelievable. [face_shocked] :cool:

    Ah man ... I have a DVD player, but no AOTC DVD. :( I can't seem to convince my dad to let me get it, even if I pay for it. He's out to get me, I tell ya ...

    Hey Xan! :)

    Hmm, I actually saved up for both the player and the DVD. A friend of mine got for me from abroad. :cool:

    So AOTC was my first ever DVD. :D

    Yep, dad's can be like that sometimes..I know. ;) My one is pretty tough too.

    I don't think I'd be able to do the same thing again now though. [face_laugh] I mean the DVD player. ;)

    Hey,
    It's raining cats and dogs here. I went to the US in July. A DVD player there is just $40 US. Really cheap. I need to check the prices here.

    JK, actually my friend bought the DVD player for me in Singapore. I didn't have the choice of buying it in the USA.

    But hey, that's great if you can get yourself a good deal. :cool: Go for it! :D

    Well, back to the old grind these days. I go to look at the Episode III news. I have almost completely weaned myself away from the spoilers, but not entirely. I'm trying really hard to be mostly spoiler free this year. Anyway, if I dont look at the spoiler board for a while, I'll forget what I read before anyway. :)

    LOL [face_laugh]

    JK, I can't say I'm spoiler free. ;) Although I want to wait for the movie and allow the thrills and chills to be more effective, I can't help wondering what's happening?

    At the end of the day, we all know that the real highlight is going to be Anakin's fall to the dark side...so we are already spoiled aren't we? ;)

    If you're truly spoiler-free, the OT would be the ultimate spoiler. [face_laugh] So I don't see the point. :p

    Meaning I'll just look up as many spoliers as I want, last SW movie or no. [face_mischief]

    Yeah, horrible attitude, but I hate not knowing stuff that's right there. :p

    Yeah Xan...that's true...the whole OT! [face_laugh]

    Actually, we all know what's gonna happen. But that hasn't changed how we feel has it? :D We're still gonna watch it and we're still gonna get chills when Anakin becomes Darth Vader! [face_shocked]

    Beginning of the holiday here. I need it. I'm working overtime in teaching. Not very healthy at all. I think my time in Korea is almost finished, and it's time to move on. Maybe where I can collect my Star Wars comics again. :)

    Moving on? You mean leaving Korea? :confused:

    Either way, holidays are good. :p I'm halfway through my week-long holidays here. :(

    I am back at the job. It's nice getting these 17 Korean holidays off, with a professor's schedule. It's quite nice. But torturing university students is even more fun. Just kidding.

    I have exams now. :( So, not great ... my Biology paper wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, though.

    You're going to uni now Amber? What sort of courses are you taking?
