    Hi, my name is Adam Button, I'm a reporter at The Spectator and I'm working on a story about the new Star Wars film and I'd like to write about how the films have helped parents bond with their children.

    I'm looking for a local family that shares an interest in Star Wars. Please email me at abutton@thespec.com if this is you.

    Also, send me a note if you know of any parties or events coinciding with the film's release or of any interesting local stories about Star Wars.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    i dunno, was he really serious? i don't read the spectator, did they actually pick someone. Maybe the person had to be from Hamilton....

    Speaking of Hamilton, the two guys sitting beside us at the advance screening were from Hamilton. They were drunk!

    I met with Adam ( Spec Reporter) twice for about 3 hours in total. You folks can come over to my place
    on Saturday afternoon if you like...

    I have a decent home theatre system and we can watch some movies :)

    ooooh home theatre, my tv is mono, isn't that sad :(
    i have spent all afternoon playing w Amber, at least i got the vaccuming done first, but about the laundry....

    Stupid spectator, they could have at least thanked you for your time and let you know you weren't selected.

    really MUST see about preparing some dinner....
