I'm thinkin' I gotta visit someday. ;-) We don't have much in the way of good restaurants up here! Good diners, but not much else.

No....no milk. No onion rings either, for that matter. They had spicey sauce, though.

Mmm, chocolate...

I'm getting a headache from staring at long strings of numbers referring to different types of screws and things. Got to have a demo done by the end of tomorrow for a hopefully new client... and it's really fiddly stuff. Bleah.

Nothing going on here. I keep sneaking paragraphs of my books, which feels awfully naughty.

I guess I must not lead a very exciting life, if something like that makes me feel so guilty. But then...maybe that's a good thing.

I was just making myself tea and upon taking the boiling water out of the microwave I spilled it on my foot. I was not wearing shoes. That did not feel good.

I went to see the original Star Wars on the big screen when it came out with my parents, in 1977. Unless you are older than my 25 year old baby brother, you didn't see the original. You saw the re-release, completely digitally remastered with new, never before seen footage.

I did see the original on vhs when I was younger, about two years before the new remastered Star Wars came out.

That makes sense, but that was not what you said. When you said that you saw the original in the theater, I thought, "what? pre-utero? She must have meant the remastered version of the original."

I meant original Star Wars as in the first movie.

And that would be really seriesly pre-utero, my parents hadn't even met when Star Wars came out.

Jen used the Force to watch the original :)

They're in the Death Star now. Obi-wan just bumped into Darth. I have a vivid memory of the first time seeing that scene in the theater as a kid trying to figure out who would win. I said to myself, "Obi-wan can't win because then the villain would be dead and the movie would be over. But Darth can't win. . .can he?" That was a shock!

Space Ghost Episode Guide

Episode: 42

Title: Switcheroo

Original Air Date: September 12, 1997

Guest Stars: Mark Hamill, Bill Mumy

[SNIP]

Mark Hamill (MH):(appears on studio monitor)

Uh, it's Mark Hamill here.

Space Ghost (SG):

Whoa! Look who's here, young people! It's none other than Duke Fartknocker!

Moltar (M):

Luke Skywalker!

SG:

Luke Skytopper of the popular "Space War" science fiction mega-empire franchise.

MH:

Uh, I think it's much more along the lines of a fairy tale than it is straightforward science fiction.

SG:

Whatever, professor. How's Chewwy?

MH:

Chewwy? Well, you know...

SG:

(laughs) You and me both!

MH:

(stares back)

SG:

But seriously, Mark... (very quietly) was it scary working with Lord Vader?

M:

(making Darth Vader breathing noises)

MH:

James Earl Jones is just such a gifted person, and-

Zorak (Z):

Prowse.

SG:

Eh?

Z:

David Prowse. He played Vader in the movie version, not Jones.

MH:

(laughs) Hey, I said a dirty word.

Z:

Oh, you did, pal!

M:

David Prowse! Are you joking? If this is a joke, I'm not laughing.

Z:

Prowse is the true Lord Vader!

M:

Prowse? Blpblpblp! He was a figurehead! It is Jones who is the true Vader!

Z:

Answer me this, Moltar: who patrolled the galleys of the Death Star?

M:

The ewoks!

SG:

(laughs)

MH:

(laughs)

Z:

Don't patronize me, bantha fodder!

M:

Well, if you consulted your handbook, you would know it was the storm troopers.

Z:

Yes, of course, but who led them, Moltar? Huh? Who led 'em? Refresh my memory on this one, if you please!

M:

(silent)

Z:

Would that be Pr... Pr.. Pr.. Pro-w-w-w-w-wse?

M:

Prowse, but he-

Z:

Exactly!

M:

But-

Z:

Exactly, Moltar! That's exactly what I thought!

SG:

Hey, what do you fellas think of those Ghostbusters?

Z:

(stares back)

SG:

You think they'd scare me because I'm, you know, I'm a ghost.

MH:

(stares back)

SG:

I mean, hey, Zorak, who ya gonna call?

Z:

I'm gonna call you an idiot.

SG:

What!

Z:

You heard me! Mouth breather!

("Star Wars" type music begins playing in background)

Voice (V):

Trust in your feelings, Tad. Use the powerbands!

SG:

(blast Zorak with destructo ray; music ends)

SG:

(to Mark) Wouldn't be interested in a new career as a sidekick, would you?

MH:

Well, you know, I, uh, it beats Ed McMahon.

SG:

I must warn you, you would be required to laugh at the outrageously hilarious antics of a talk show in outer space!

MH:

(in Ed McMahon voice) Ho ho ho ho, yes! (normal voice) I can do that.

SG:

I like your attitude, Hamill. Come in Monday for paperwork.

MH:

(in Ed McMahon voice) Ho ho ho ho, yes!

SG:

(laughs) Whoa, save some for the convention, buddy!

MH:

(in Ed McMahon voice) Ho ho ho ho, yes!

SG:

(stares back)

MH:

(clears his throat)

SG:

So, what do you do at these conventions? Do you, say, show how you ate breakfast on Tattooine? Is it Tattooine?

MH:

Oh, me eating cereal would be (makes slurping sounds through his hands)

SG:

Hmmm, impressive.

M:

This is just sad.

(Monitor shows huge block of impossible to read but possibly French text)

SG:

That's amazing, Mark. Would you bring your imaginary bowl of cereal to my convention?

MH:

That'd be great, if I'm, um, in your galaxy, I'll stop on by.

SG:

Great! Then I'll see you at "Space Ghost Con '97".

MH:

Thank you so much for having me. (image fades from monitor)

Z:

I don't know, he sounded iffy.

SG:

That's not the Luke Skytopper I know!

Z:

You don't know Luke Skywalker!

SG:

Can you ever really know a man, Zorak? (syrupy music swells in background) I mean, sure, you can know what he does, where he lives, the way his hair smells in the morning after a brief rain... (music stops) Wait a second! I've got to buy supplies for (begin echo effect) "Space Ghost Con '97"! (end echo) (flies off to office supply store, enters by crashing through ceiling) What a selection! You don't have to be a superhero to appreciate these super-savings!

M:

(to Mark, on control room monitor) (impersonating James Earl Jones) "This is CNN."

MH:

(laughs)

M:

Oh, and, uh, "Luke, I am your father."

MH:

(laughs)

M:

Did you get to sign my helmet yet? Uh, "son"?

MH:

Yeah, I signed it.

M:

It was great having you at our "Sci-Fi Con", man.

MH:

Thanks so much.

M:

You're not, really going to "Space Ghost Con", are you?

MH:

No, no, no, I was, I was workin' and I have another job after this, actually.

If you are talking about Nicotiana alata, they really aren't tobaccy leaves! But it is a beautiful annual; we planted it once or twice, don't recall why we stopped....

Evening Master dwarf!

A successful day of horsey rides was had....

ecurbh's family were all impressed by him saddling his horse, something he didn't know about when they last met.

All the kids got to go:

And even all the grownups went! This is Bruce's mom gettin up...

And his dad:

We're tuckered out now! Hope to be hearing soon from our mooters, I think they should be on the ground here and headed south! Any word?

Depends which post you're talking about :) I did see the original when I was in 1st grade. But like Jen when the re-release came out I made special arrangements. I took a half-day at work and came in an hour early that day in order to get home in time to be first in line for the noon showing :)

I'm off to see the Harry Potter movie in five minutes, so see everyone in a few hours!
