  1. lol!! Hi Icy, good to see you. Thought of you and Hanfan when I was on the Lake Michigan beach this summer. You still in the same area? Euro - pretty sure we connected about this on FB/Messenger, but IM me if you still need an email. The Swede Abides.
  2. Hey you kids, get off my lawn!! Happy birthday, Nightly, you drunk old shuttered bastdoor. And I mean that in the most loving way. Glad you've kept this place going. It's always been a fun place to blow off some steam, and I've always been grateful to this place for the laughs and for giving me other SW fans in my life to commiserate/anticipate things with. Mostly on FB nowdays, and I lost my original login here, but it's awesome to still recognize so many of you. You know, before the alzhiemers sets in and the vision fails.
  3. Anyone been yet? Planning on going? I've got a work trip to Orlando so will be there Oct 1. Been looking forward to "living" in the SW Universe since ANH so hoping for good things!
  4. I heard it's not IG-88. Like The Mandalorian isn't a Fett, the droid that looks like IG-88 is a different model. I just wanna see Salicious Crumb toasted on a stick. Mmmm, mmmm good!
  5. I keep reading this title as "I need a new boyfriend". Keyboard....Boyfriend....new purchase...decisions decision! Just make sure they're plug and play, right?
  6. It's sad. Good man. Nasty disease. But I can't see his name without hearing a fake Sean Connery saying "Trebeck, your mother's a whore!" Good grief were those skits funny. "Write your name. The final question is just, write your name. "
  7. Boba Sweat lives, hahaha awesome. You were never banned because you used slang no one understood. But I do recall a lot of deleted posts.
  8. Mod me! Mod me! Wait, what's that quote about how I'd never want to be a member of a club that would have me as a member? Oh c'mon, just for a day so I can say I'm a "former moderator"? I promise not to burn anything.
  9. Man, that was fun. I worked 4 days of Star Wars Celebration Chicago as "Crew" and while semi-grueling (on your feet 8 hours a day and then walking the show floor before and after), it was a BLAST. Free pass to the con? Check. Use the VIP entrance and get in early? Check. Back-door, pre-opening access to the store (when staff were being nice) Check. Money spent? oh yeah. Costumes drooled over, content devoured, people oogled, and legs walked off. But the real fun was getting to know more geeks like you guys. Srsly, I thought of this place a lot and especially the fun we had at Cele
  10. My turn? This is real basic, but here goes: since we "renovated" my office building and I have to sit in a teeny plastic cubicle now surrounded by talkers, I'd like to listen to music off my work computer. What are my options?
  11. My phone memory is maxed out, so no more apps for me until I figure out how to clean it out or get more storage. We have one drive at work and I lost so many work files to it that I don't trust cloud storage any more... But I suppose I could move my 2000 pictures to my computer, at least. Then maybe. Meanwhile, I love that a shelter in IN started saying "Rent a dog to walk while you play Pokeman Go" and so many people walked dogs, they made enough money to waive adoption fees. Then so many people fell in love with the doggies that they just took them home forever and the place emptied o
  12. I CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA FIRST. 5 years ago. PS, I forgot how to resize images, sorry. Blame tequila.
  13. 16 years of posts and THIS is what gets upped on my return after ages away?? lol. Well then, if we're going to talk about it, let's just clarify the rules of 'Merica. The ones that don't have fine print crap about "constitutional rights" and "civic responsibilities". THe REAL Rules of Being an American: 1. We pledge allegiance to the diet of the republic, under Go...McDonalds, and to the foundational substances to which we are addicted: Salt, Sugar, Fat and Caffeine. We are one nation, on a binge, liberally pursuing our happiness - so don't be dissing our comfort food. Amen. Oh, al
  14. YES! Dear Boba, All my girlfriends have read that "Outlander" book and are all hot and bothered for a Scotsman in a kilt. But every time they talk of hot sex with a Scot I picture your leering face and the drunken rude, obscene comments I've heard from you in the past and I start laughing and promptly ruin their "mood". Channeling Saturday Night Live's Sean Connery skits don't help. They are starting to get annoyed with me. What should I do? Also, do you have any friends planning a visit to Chicago any time soon? My friends would like to know. Also also, I tried to convince them we
  15. Something something, causing a commotion. Best. Commercial. Song. Ever. Agreed?
  16. I'm thinking I need a job that doesn't leave me wanting to scream almost every day. Something where I don't have to deal with stupid people. Can anybody tell me how to job hunt from my work laptop without my office knowing what I'm doing?
  17. It's just too much for me with all the travel/work on my plate that month. So I'm passing. Any other week and I'd have been there but back to back trips the week after are going to kick my ass as it is. Still sad about it. So please torture me with everything wonderful there is to do and see. I expect to see some great pics!
  18. Did you guys see you can now play FANTASY Puppy Bowl? I am SO getting a "team" next year and you're all going to join me, right? I want to see NN have their own Puppy Bowl fantasy league! Ha, can't wait!
  19. I'm proud of myself. In expanding my cooking skills, last night I made a vegetarian mushroom and spinach pot pie with a sage cream sauce and homemade pastry crust; and today did a sort of orange-soy-ginger roasted salmon on thyme, fennel and onion saute, with steamed potatoes. I have pork loin lined up for tomorrow but haven't decided what to do with it. Peach jam and my rosemary plant will make a nice glaze, though. It feels good to eat well sometimes, doesn't it? Also to learn new skills.
