    When it was announced: up flying.

    When I heard about it: Buffalo Wild Wings. A friend posted on my FB wall that Mickey was making Episode 7.

    Confused on how that was even possible, I googled "Disney Episode 7". Like everyone else, I was definitely surprised. Shared the news with my friends I was there with.

    Sitting in my car in the parking lot of a bookstore waiting on my wife. Just browsing a few sites when my jaw fell to my lap in disbelief. I told my wife that there was big news concerning my obsession. She nailed it on the second try after, "something to do with Notre Dame football."


    Will never forget it:D

    These days the "where were you when you heard about...?" answer isn't as varied as it was in the past. I remember hearing about space shuttle Challenger and being at school that day, hearing about 9/11 while driving, what I was watching when special reports broke of the invasion of Kuwait, the Soviet coup, the car crash of Princess Diana and so on, but in the past few years it all comes down to this unremarkable experience:
    I was sitting at home and saw it pop up in the news feed.

    Driving on the 10 fwy east from downtown L.A. stuck on bumper to bumper traffic when it came over the radio little after 3pm on my way to work. a big "wooooow" and texed some of the South Cal SW Fans the news.. few minutes later the same message circled back. productivity at worked slowed down for me as I kept jumping around the net for more info and also came hear after a years of hiatus. Long Beach Comic Con this weekend so will be there with everyone talking about it.

    I was on a Doctor Who forum when a friend on there posted the news and told me that I wouldn't believe it. I didn't believe it until I looked for the news myself.

    I just went to work before the internet exploded with the news. I didn't find out until about 10 pm that night from my fiancée. What a shock it was.

    I was at work and I think someone on my FB posted an article about Disney buying LucasFilm so I read it and when I read Episode's VII, VIII, IX were being made I was in disbelief, shock, happiness. Couldn't believe it but so happy.

    I was reading about it in the NY Times just after the story was posted. But the announcement was so vague, I can't really get excited about it. And when they do have more details, I'll have to go into serious spoiler avoidance again, like I did for the prequels.

    With no power because of the hurricane, I had a moratorium on phone/text usage. I woke up to my text alert going off and was angry with whoever sent me one since everyone knew I couldn't recharge my phone and was saving it for emergency use only. Well, someone smartly understood the news to be an emergency. About 10 minutes later, my neighbor came over looking for me to tell me he heard the same thing and was wondering what the news would do the to value of my collectibles. :mad:Doofus!

    I was so upset by his stupid question, the news itself and dealing with no power and a HUGE tree that had fallen and had crashed into the front of my house & blocked our cars that I couldn't speak. My entire world had officially been turned upside down.

    I'm still numb about the news. I feel so betrayed somehow.

    [:D] Sending lots of hope and good wishes your way, J_Girl. I'm sorry that Sandy affected you badly.

    I was here. Reading the CCC. I went to google SW news like I tend to do, and lo and behold, the first story was about VII.

    On fanfiction.net, more specifically sitting at the dining room table on my laptop. First I was mad, then upset, then a mixture of those about the whole 'selling Star Wars thing' but...I decided to give Disney a chance.

    I was at work. I didn't find out until my trekkie husband told me when I got home. He got way too much satisfaction out of knowing before me. Stupid trekkies.

    I just got home from work, with the intetion of making a pumpkin pie for Halloween. I wanted to check the airing time for the Once Upon A Time show so I accidentally ended up on the Disney pages and saw the press release. It's didn't quite sink in tbh. I logged in to Facebook, to find that a friend who used to work for the Mouse posted the news. Even though most of the internet immediatelly reacted with Disney-SW mashups, I was in shock about the Ep7 news, going through the Kübler-Ross phases of denial-acceptance and excitement. The pumpkin pie was forgotten. ;)

    I was on the Internet, in my room, on this website. Thank You Force.Net boards! If it wasnt for you, it would take me a much longer time to find out about Episode 7!!!!!
