I hear ya! That's what we are working out now. Between sports, camps and dental work I'm surprised I'm not working 2 or even 3 jobs. The hope is that once we get to June all of the payments for everything will be done and we get a little jump in spending money. Would love to stay on the monorail. If not PO it is.

Already have my 180 day highlighted on the calendar for ADR so we can shoot for BOG.

We don't do DP anymore. Just a hassle. Have you thought about TiW
Not a DVP or pass holder. Don't you need to be one of those to get the TiW card?

Have to think about this I will. I am still amazed they are not just touching up the Heir to the Empire Trilogy and using that for the next trilogy.

I would love to see a storyline form when Yoda was younger and training the likes of Qui Gon and Mace Windu. I think the possibilities are many when comes to what avenues of Star Wars can be explored

They're talking about two different things, running sort of in parallel (a bit like the Marvel Universe films, with standalone character films and, separately, a series of Avengers films). With Star Wars, there will be a new trilogy - which may or may not be based on Heir to the Empire - and standalone films centered on various characters. Among the suggestions have been Yoda, Han Solo, Boba Fett, Qui Gon, Mace Windu, Darth Maul, etc. The goal, as I understand it, is at least one standalone film for each trilogy film.

I'm not too sure how I feel about that. I'll withhold judgement, I guess, until I see, but I just don't feel like a standalone film in the Star Wars universe is what I've really been looking for. I'm eager and excited for the next trilogy to come along, but I just don't know about the spin-offs featuring certain characters from the Star Wars universe. It just seems like it would cheapen what the original trilogy was, in a way.

Well, you don't have to go on the dating scene either. But, this is a family board so you'll just have to figure out the rest. Honestly, I have no idea what I would do if DW and I were not married. I could say, be happy, but she might stop by to read the post; in which case, I would blame my nemesis for hijacking my account and typing that in.

I know the two are separate. I like the idea of spin offs but not Yoda. Let him be mysterious. As you mentioned we have tons of other characters to use for stand alone movies. If you really want to expand those possibilities you can delve into the Expanded Universe and use Mara Jade, Darth Bane, Darth Plagus, Jacen and Jaina Solo, Wedge Antillies, Grand Admiral Thrawn, or others. That's just off the top of my head.

Haha, I know I don't have to date again, but I also miss female conversations that don't start with "please turn on powerpuff girls" and besides my reasons for finding that someone I would like to spend my life with, DD is craving attention from another woman that isn't called grandma, I hoped she would get it from her aunt but for some reason they don't "click", my guess is as a child DD is free spirited and her aunt is more structure and discipline
