    Heck, we found out that Tim and I both saw ROTJ at the same place/showing back when we were kids and didn't know each other! Traci and Rhonda did, too
    LOL That's cool.

    That's cause y'all talk alot.
    ...it's called a discussion board. ;)

    **OFF TOPIC** hmmm or is it -

    I was digging through and saw Adventurecon will be June 2005. I was impressed w/ that convention (Not like I've been to millions) but I liked the entire setup etc...
    Just curious if anyone was tagging along to Knoxville for it this year?
    They are having a Chattacon here also - I'll scope it out!

    BTW: I'm now a member of the Chattooine Star Wars Fan group here... made my first meeting last week!

    Man, Chattacon looks like it has the same guests MSC has had! Jeez- do they just swap these folks out each year or what?!

    Had a great time at AdventureCon. Will try and hit that one again. Stabbo's restraining order from the TNA Wrestlers should be expired by then!

    Todd, I'm pretty sure we discussed the other day, but I've now made plans to go and bring Devin with me. All I had to say was 'there will be famous people there' and she was in. So definitely look for us!!!

    I'm hoping several of us can carpool to Adventure Con next year.

    Lori, are you moved now?

    The travails of a fictional sci-fi con at a fictional university, where everythign goes wrong. I thought it could be useful reference for us, in case we ever get this big.

    Lori, are you moved now?

    Yes, I'm officially moved. It's kinda fun down here. My baby niece is finally getting used to me, so that's good. I'm sure I will make a trip to Memphis before the x-mas holidays. And if not, I'll see y'all at Celebration 3.

    I know nothing about it, but, they have Tanya Roberts in their banner. That's enough to get me excited.

    Is that a joke? Since when is General Madine a SuperHero?

    The similar show in Chicago is advertising those guests @ $15 for one day and $30 for a three day pass.
    Depending on how it shapes up, could be interesting.

    Of course, it could end up sucking all the life out of TC!2...

    Or, there could be a HUGE backlash as local cheapskates unite and say, "I don't wanna pay $30 +$20/autograph for a bunch of washed-up has-beens! I wanna go hang with a bunch of really cool, ultra-hip, local types for FREE!"
