Urp.  

Greetings 'Jeff'.  

Uh, Matt, I remember that chat.  Is there anything I need to apologize for?

Looks like the Dallas game is the one to watch (so far)  2-2 in the second period.

Minnesota seems mildly hungry in this one, 4 mintues left in the second, 6-1.  Cliff Ronning just scored.  Looks like this one is going back to Minnesota for game 6.  I'd be impressed with the Canucks if they come back and win this one, but it doesn't seem likely.

I'm relieved.  Not much in that list that appeals to me at all.  No new Homers, I'm good.  Can't say I'm terribly dissappointed in the cancellation of the 300th set either.

Ah Scott, you're just not using your imagination.  Think about this:  A stormtrooper with a blast hitting him in the chest, knocking him back into the wall of the death star hangar.  Perfect complement to Han Unleashed.

Brad, you aren't taunting me because of what I said on another board, are you? ;)

Unleashed need to be dynamic characters.  While I love Jabba as much as the next guy (or gal), what's the Un-Jabba gonna be, drooling ferociously? :o

Chewie's a great choice for unleashed, so workable in so many ways.  I really wish they hadn't wasted a Vader with the redux.  They could have done a two pack or even three pack with Vader, Palpatine and Jedi Luke on the death star, just a much more dynamic version of the cinema scene.  Now that would be cool.

Hmm, not old enough in the sense of collecting to have had friends that collected toys - too old to have collected originally (i.e. vintage).  

But from a slightly different standpoint, I am amazed how few people are still active over at the other board where I did my initial burst of trading.  Lots of great people there, but for the most part, they all seem to be gone or only pop up occasionally.  Really, really transient population.  Matt, Scott, Dale, Bob are guys I traded with that are still around, many others are gone.  Jim doesn't count, cuz we didn't start trading until GH was up and running.  Even lots of Minnesota guys seem to have come and gone.

What about a Stormtrooper?  I'm rather surprised this isn't on your list Scott.  

And Ewoks?  Yeah, right after they make an Unleashed Jar Jar ::)

« on: May 5, 2003, 11:57 AM »
Ah, the opportunity to show that I am truly insane.  Not that there was ever any doubt.  

I have a THING for knives.  I absolutely love them.  No idea why, but I just can't resist them and get one or two a year.  Kind of a collecting thing, but not really.  

Nifty little Gerber clip knife (3" blade) sitting on my desk right now.  In the drawer is a small Buck with a similar blade.  Also a Swiss army knife - can't remember the model though.  

Next drawer has a larger Gerber fixed blade that is used more as a digging tool than anything else.  Nice 6" blade.  There's also a Schrade Old Timer which is similar to Brad's knife in the picture above.  Also have a small McNett scuba knife (yes, I am a certified diver. no, I don't recall why it's at work with me).  

In the car are two Swiss army knives and a Spiderco Delica clip on knife.  Just seems the car is a repository for knives - great for when you get pulled over and the car is searched.  One of the Swiss army knives is a gift from a friend and is directly from Switzerland.  The other has the magnifying glass in it.  Great description eh?  There's a Leatherman original in the car and probably my original Scuba knife is in the trunk.  Somewhere.  My golf bag, that is currently in the trunk, has the Swiss Army golfer version (green repair tool).  

My keychain has the small Swiss army knife (orange in colour) on it.  I think my wife has one as well and there are probably two more in the house.  I can't honestly recall how many more pocket knives are around the house, maybe another six or so.

Just found a green Swiss army knife that was a gift from one of the groups I gave a presentation to this past winter.  It's in my desk too.  

Hmm, it's summer.  Think I should go find another.

Gee, and here I was thinking more of Matt as a 'Lilith' type.  Huh.  Gotta run away now.

Real interesting point in the series.  Finally, finally some team figured out Giguere.  Is it enough though?  Should be a great game tomorrow night.

Congrats on the move Carrie.  Polish beer, eh?  Cannot say I recall ever having one.  Must try to locate some.  

Having a Canada Dry right now ::)

Cool movie.  Better for fans of the books that will know the characters though.  My wife missed a lot.  Fairly Phoenician, if ya know what I mean ;)

Nightcrawler was pretty cool.  I was pleasantly surprised.  

My opinion is that it was indeed more enjoyable than the first.  If only they could get Rogue to stop screaming so much. ::)

It's interesting to see people's reactions to Yoda.  Mine and seemingly everyone else's is pretty similar to how I felt about Jango and Maul.  Turn the Maul figure slightly and it looks much better than the promo shots.  That saber full length is pretty cool too.  

For Jango, as soon as I removed (or never put in) baby Boba, it looks really cool.  Wonder if I can customize the upcoming Obi figure to make it a rain battle?

Hey, how about an unleashed old man Kenobi ;D

In my heart of hearts though, I don't see Hasbro making it a "Jedi Master Points" exclusive--they'll only be valid with a receipt dated during a certain time frame.

Grrrrrrrrr. >:(

Hmmm.  Pictures never seem to do these justice.  I never liked the original ones that were released, as I had only seen pictures and then in package.  Not too impressed at that point.  

Then I lucked into finding 3 at only $5 a piece on clearance.  Heck, I can buy ugly stuff at that price.  When I opened them up and put them on display - WOW!  Great looking pieces.  

I'm sure these will be the same.  I really like the Han pose, it seems so characteristic.  Having a really small chunk of the Falcon is cool too (I presume it's the Falcon).  Yoda is interesting too.  Again, the picture doesn't do much for me, but I'm sure that once he is in my grubby little hands, I'll be most impressed.

Uh-oh was indeed correct.  Wild had a great chance on a partial breakaway during the penalty, but not to be.

Canucks get the goal with about 15 seconds left on the power play.  Cnaucks lead series 3-1 (I think).

G'night
