    I seem to recall something about Master K sharing a drink or twelve with him and talking coherently in Wookieese.

    That takes a lot of study or a lot of mind altering liquids.

    And I had a humiliating moment many years ago with Jeremy Bulloch. Back when Mrs. Sid and I were really scraping the barrel to go to cons we got free crash space in a friend's hotel room. We had this ugly foam mattress we used to sleep on, thing was tattered, discolored, and just a mess. I was lugging the bulky rolled up thing back to the car and was on the the elevator when Jeremy stepped on. I studiously watched the numbers as he smiled at me, then looked pointedly at the mattress.

    I had no words, just wanted to hide. Sadly the only thing to hide behind was the mattress, which made things WORSE. I rode in silence while he cleared his throat and grinned.

    Never said a word to him, never seen him that close since. I'm terrified he will remember me, "Oh, yeah, I remember you, you're were the one with the mattress!"

    *cringes*
