Good to hear the 3 3/4 line is coming back, even though it will just be online.   The repainted Humvee might be worthwhile, but I'll pass on the comic three pack of Zartan/Zarana/CC in armor and the single Scrap Iron.  The packaging looks good for him, but the figure looks goofy to me.

I missed the first episode when it first came on, but I caught it Sunday night on Sci-Fi.  I'm glad I had a chance to see it.  It is X-Files good IMO.  I agree about Natascha McElhone.  More nuns like that would have made me pay more attention in school.  I wonder if this series will end with the end of times or if they will continue it as a regular series next year.

I just figured I'd find a good Star Wars one and Amy Allen looks good in blue.

I found a 10 inch Hawkgirl today at Target.  It's the first JLU 10 incher I picked up and I'm pleased with her.

I was working at Value Vision a few years ago and Pete stopped by to sell some memorabilia.  I didn't get a chance to talk to him because I didn't work that day, but my co-workers said he wasn't too much of a jerk.  Of course, they probably were told not to say anything to him unless spoken to.  One guy did get a picture with Pete and didn't have to pay for it. 
Kerry Wood did look like crap yesterday.  I was able to watch that game and he was brutal in the first inning.  It's early in the season, though.  Anything can happen. 
Glad to hear the Twins will not lose Silva to the DL for long.  He's arguably their second best starter behind Santana.  Radke, Lohse and Mays are far too inconsistent.
Terry Tiffee was an excellent call up to replace Morneau while he heals.  All Tiffee does is drive in runs.  The Twins need more hitters like that with hackers like Hunter and Jones taking up space.

Honeymoon baby, Jack?  That's cool.  Congrats, and good luck!

Thanks.  It was sort of a honeymoon baby.  My wife was pregnant about a month after we were married.  I was glad to find out I'm not shooting blanks.

My wife and I were married last August and we'll have our first baby, a boy, this June.  I'm looking forward to being a dad.  My dad was 32 when I was born.  I'll be 33 when my little guy is born.

I guess that land is far too valuable to have a golf course on it  only used for five or six months out of the year.  That's too bad.  I was not happy with the loss of Maple Hills and now they took away Country View also.  Oh well, it's not like I went there last year.  That's what getting married will do to you, though.  This summer my wife will have our first little guy, so I'll have even less time and money for golfing, but I'll be fine with that.

Tiger is the best.  He lives for the competition.  I knew he would win after that shot.  DiMarco is still the bridesmaid.  He'll probably win a major eventually.  If Mickelson can, he can, too. 
I never hit an ace, but I came close once.  I was playing at Maple Hills before it was turned into a townhome park  :-[
And I was hitting on hole 6 or 7, the one that was at the top of the hill where you hit out of the trees.  This was before they bulldozed that hill and changed the course.  I hit the ball straight at the stick and it hit the stick, dropped down and nearly bounced into the cup.  It rolled a few feet away and I was able to putt it in from there.
Any fellow Minnesotans know what the heck happened to Country View in Maplewood?  I drove by there recently for the first time in a while and noticed it was closed up.  I can't believe they weren't making money.  That place was always packed.  One less par 3 in the area..... >:(

I would have more Batman and DC comics stuff.

I like the figures.  The only way I'd like them more is if Luke had a yellow saber and Chewie had a green gun.  I'm glad I bought the set.

I was able to find wave 7 finally.  I picked up Boobstrike/Croc Master at TRU and Gung Ho/Viper at WM.  I'm done with Joes for now unless I come across Bazooka/Torch.

523 has the Early Bird sets.

Darth Vader
Palpatine 10
GG Bodyguard
Blue Senate Guard
Red Guard
Obi 1 or 27
Anakin 2
Anakin 28
Yoda 3
Shaak Ti
one of each Clone

Fortunately, I have been able to buy most of these except for Mace, GG Bodyguard, the Blue Guard, Luminara and Palpatine-10.  I saw Luminara but couldn't buy her.  I haven't seen the others.  These are the five I will be after this weekend, plus the deluxe Vaders.

$30, yes.  $80, no way!
