Yes, smilies are helpful. And yeah, I know it's kind of a joke to refer to our status as being anywhere near on schedule. Seriously though, I'm very grateful to London and Toronto for being so efficient with Vader. I know it's not easy to plan the photo shoots when you have no idea when Vader is going to arrive, and they were left in that not-knowing situation for weeks while the postal service did who knows what with him. I bring this up because I recall one particularly unpleasant individual I had to deal with many stops back in the tour who criticized our group for having totally unrealistic expectations of their group by imposing such a short time limit. This person was really rude and mean, and I never received an apology. Since then though, groups like London, Toronto, and several others have had no problems whatsoever planning ahead and getting things done on time, and sometimes even early! The good experiences help make the bad ones less memorable. Thankfully there have been far more pleasant people involved with this than the unpleasant.
