    In all seriousness, I was in the library doing homework and casually checked Facebook, and I saw that someone had posted an article relating to that. I thought nothing of it, until I went back to my room and checked the JCC and found a thread regarding that topic that ran for about 30 or so pages. The mods locked it the next day though.:(

    I was revising for exams. Took a few minutes out to check the film sites. Tried though i did, i couldn't focus on revision after reading the news.

    Had a very big smile on my face though. My wife thought i was mad.

    Just checkin' mah Facebook and saw a friend posted it. Didn't believe it at first, naturally. I said something like, "Don't toy with my emotions."

    Heard it from my English Comp. I professor at the beginning of class.

    My reaction caused the entire class to laugh for a good 5 minutes.

    On the couch surfing the web. That is the truth. However, if the ST is legendary, I may embellish the story a bit to my future children and grandchildren.:p

    I was doing morning sit ups when I heard the main theme coming from the tv downstairs , I nearly fell down the stairs , thinking it was news of the Star Wars tv shows that we were all waiting on. I couldn't believe it when I heard there were to be new Star Wars films. Had to keep checking and rechecking the net to make sure I wasn't dreaming.

    I was already offline for the day when the news broke. I found an email from Grimby the next morning about it and then came onto the boards.

    I was woken up by my brother with the news but was initially in disbelief; searched 'Star Wars' into google and there it was: over 5000 articles, BBC at the fore, with the headline 'Disney buys Lucasfilm.'

    At work, checking my phone and my friend texted me "Disney bought Lucasfilm and Episode VII to come out in 2015." Didn't believe him at all. Then I was showing a customer a computer and features of Windows 8, went onto the internet and on the homepage in bold letters was something like "Disney buys Lucasfilm for $4 billion" My head exploded and I let out a silent shriek of glee.

    I was so bored I was on Twitter at the time and thought there was a running gag going on. When I realized it was no joke, I paid for a new server for Phatooine.Net and logged onto the JC.

    OTOH, I check Twitter a lot more now, even when not bored. Heh.

    About to make a thread called "Is Star Wars Dead?" when I went and took a shower. Came back, refreshed TF.N and yelled on the top of my lungs.

    Haha not really actually, it was more of an internal shriek or "silent" as I put it. I just looked and the headline and smiled and moved on, with the nerdgasm building up inside me.
