I remember almost every moment of that week for some odd reason. I had a football game the night before, and since we had no practice that morning, I got to sleep in.

I was eating breakfast when my dad told me to put it on CNN because a plane crashed into the WTC. I was thinking "Meh, they'll fix it". Then I saw the TV, and I thought the same thing. My family then sat down and watched the TV, when the second plane hit. I thought "Damn, this is serious!"

I headed off to school, and was the only kid informed of it. Everyone else was like "Yeah right". During 1st Period, which was Athletics, the Principal came over the intercom and said "Let's have a moment of silence for the victims in NYC". After 1st Period was homeroom, where the teacher rigged the TV to Fox News. Right then, I learned of the Pentagon crash, and saw the last tower collapse. Then the principal announces that the ******* superintendant wanted all TVs to remain off because they don't want us to see stuff going on in the real world.

After that, the teachers thought that Austin would be hit next, since it's the capitol of Bush's home state, and piled the homework on us. All we kids wanted to do was discuss, but the teachers said "Well, it doesn't have anything to do with (Insert Subject Here), but I guess a few minutes of discussion wouldn't hurt." I laughed my ass off when the history teacher said that.

When I got home, I finished the homework, and just watched the news all night. Then the teachers at school just acted like nothing ever happened, and turned it into a stressful week.


Funny story: 9/11 actually got me back into SW. I had been out of the SW loop since late 1999. We were talking about it at lunch, and a friend said "Too bad we can't get that space station from Star Wars and blow up the Mid East country that did this!". Then I remembered, "Man, when was the last time I watched that movie?", and a few months later, I was back to being a complete SW nerd.

It does look nice, but I have to say "meh" because they still don't have anything interesting on their site.

I know.

The original sounds sort of like "As you wisssh...", and the new one sounds like "asyouwish".

Just ******* terrible.

I'm still searching for VOTC (My main priority right now). All I can find are the vehicles, and each generation of Commtech Han (From 2003 up).

**** that ****, I'll wait until they're actually for sale. I don't even care what condition the card comes in.

$14.63 is WAY too much for a rereleased and modified figure that I bought for about $10 less around 6 years ago...

Zod's signature reminded me of this:

Why couldn't they have gotten rid of Darth Bryan?

Family Guy is the only show of theirs that interests me, but I'm sure I would enjoy the other shows if I watched them.

BTW, do they still show Mission Hill? I remember watching a few episodes of that 2 years ago...

I say "Meh" to the whole thing, but I shudder since I have a feeling who will become the new mods. Durge...... General Windu........ Mushimarumushu...........

Utter crap. Durge and GNT would probably try and ban each other though, which could make for some interesting posts. ;)
