    So, is your chapter going to do something special for Free Comic Book Day?

    Our chapter will be at Rebel Base and we'll be helping out and collecting donations for Make-A-Wish.

    I'm so excited for the Star Wars Mini giveaway! Squee! :D :D :D :D :D

    So, what's everyone else up to?

    I've never been to a Free Comic Day before. [face_blush] I'll be at my LCS this Wednesday for the new Legacy & KOTOR releases - I'll have to ask them what's going on.


    Speaking of Minis, I got your icon (loooooove me some Deliah Blue!) and Jariah Syn on Ebay. My man Cade might be a little harder to come by, but I'm determined to get the Mynock crew. [face_mischief]

    Minis minis MINIS ... they are all over my house right now (No kidding +- 300 of them - nothing new though)!

    My son and daughter are having a WAR (He's the Imperials trying to RULE THE GALAXY and she thinks she some group of barbie fairies spreading love or something - my son is going to be sick over this (Now that's a weapon of mass destruction he didn't count on having to deal with), oh but I digress, I will be in Charlotte for other reasons and will probably stop by Heroes.

    Chattooine and some of the local 501st and RL members are going to invade Dicehead Comics & Games from 1 - 3pm. Nothing unusually special except this was a good jumping off point for getting some group "appearances" going again to help lead up to The Clone Wars premier.

    I bought her on eBay. [face_blush] And my comic shop owner told me to bring in my Caedus and he?ll find me someone who'll swap it for a Cade. [face_love]


    [face_laugh] Minis vs. Barbies. Blastech vs. Hairspray. Oooh, it?s epic!


    Cool! I?ll second the call for pictures. :D

    We were supposed to have a few more people out, but I think the potential storms in the area scared them away. It actually turned out to be a nice day. Loads of kids! The store had free pizza and had drawings every half hour for various stuff. I know my son (Anakin) walked away with a bag full of comics, the free SW mini, the Iron Man Heroclix, and a Pokemon Championship deck he won (along with some kind of X-Man hardback book that I won). I really wanted us to play Rock Band while we were there, but the drums were broke. :_| Maybe next time.

    Our FCBD went well but it went without us. I spent the day at the hospital with my husband who was very ill.

    They raised over $100 for Make-A-Wish. I am so bummed I wasn't there to support them but I needed to be with my husband.

    Later that night I had my daughter's birthday party and she got sick. I just couldn't win for losing that day. :(
