Watto's Junk Yard / Re: How long have you collected SW?
« on: April 2, 2003, 02:48 PM »
1978 or 1979 I believe even before I saw SW on the Big Screen...which I don't think I was able to do until the SE's

Anyway some of my friends had SW swag and I'd play along as any 3 or 4 year old would.  On the way home from the doctor after getting a shot my mom brought me to Target and I got to pick any figure or toy I wanted.  I chose a Han Solo, I can't figure out when that was though.  It had to have been '79.  ESB came out soon after and I was really gung ho into it by then plus we had moved and most of my new buddies were also heavily into Star Wars.  My love dried up around 1983 though because I only have 2 ROTJ figures from my youth, 2 Jedi Lukes.  I had moved on to He-Man and GI Joe for the most part.  Which is strange that I moved from a more sophistacted thing to a more kiddy friendly world which was cartoon dominated.  I do remember part of the switch had to do with size (He-Man) and articulation (Hasbro) for the money it was hard to pass up

Come 1995 and my girlfriends brother at the time who was big time into Vintage showed me this magazine called the Insider which had pictures of New Figures.  Since my girlfriend worked at Target I swung by the toy section and rest is history!

I'll go ahead and lock this one too since I don't want people thinking on April 2nd that these are real

I also didn't want to list ICMG because then it would be really obvious :P

Watto's Junk Yard / Breakfast
« on: April 2, 2003, 10:53 AM »
Breakfast food is my favorite stuff but I rarely eat breakfast.  As I stated in the exercise thread I could eat 2 eggs with hashbrowns every day it is so good.  We sometimes make this on the weekends and top the eggs off with some cheese and salsa.  Oh baby...

I also love pancakes and waffles.  I think Perkins is pretty much a national chain but they have this Deli Ham and Cheese Omelette with SOur cream that you also get a stack of pancakes with.  I swear if I ever got the gas chamber this would be my final meal

Then there is cereal.  I could also live off of Frosted Flakes with sliced banana and some ice cold milk.  I usually eat cereal before I go to bed.  I just don't usually have time to eat in the morning and will usually just grab a granola bar and a cup of joe for the road

All hail Breakfast!

JD Sports Forum! / Re: Batter up! Baseball's finally back...
« on: April 1, 2003, 11:05 PM »


A repeat of the '87 Series with the Twinkies winning in 7 sounds just about right.  I am really excited for this season to start, I fell in love with the ole ball game last year again and plan on going to the ballpark a couple of times.  The Jays have always been one of my favorites too harkening back to the time when they probably had the best 9 batters top to bottom ever assembled in one lineup in the earlier 90's (Carter, Molitor, Alomar, Olerud, Winfield, White, Henderson etc etc

I'm going to pick

AL Central: Minnesota
AL East: Boston
AL West: Oakland
AL Wild Card: New York

NL Central: Saint Louis
NL East: Philadelphia
NL West: Arizona
NL Wild Card: New York

So looks like Matt's teams won't even be in the playoffs by my reckoning :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*
