Revenge of the Sith / Re: Spending too much $$$?
« on: May 10, 2005, 09:34 AM »
I've spent a bit of money, but since I'm not army building or even buying doubles to open one anymore, it hasn't been as bad as in the past.  Couple that with I'm making a LOT more money now compared to when Episode II came out.

Yes.  Jeff Gordon's car is scheduled to ship next month.  Elliot Sadler and Dale Jarrett also have Star Wars themes cars, only theirs were for M&M's Mpire theme.

I ordered a few things on 2 May and they're also supposed to ship on 12 May.  I'm suprised it's going to take them 10 days to fill an order....don't they make the stuff?

I've seen this yoda at retail, but have not had the desire to purchase it.

I have the Yoda Furby from Episode 1 and thought that was a pretty cool toy though.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Rate your job satisfaction...
« on: May 5, 2005, 09:05 PM »
Overall, I like my job...but like any job it has it's moments.  I've been in the Air Force 12 years now...it's kind of nice to know that I could retire in less than 8 years if I chose to, but I'm thinking of sticking it out a little longer and retire with 25 years in...if I feel like I'm still making a difference and possibly retire as a Lt Col as opposed to Major if I get out at 20 years.

That being said, I was moved to a new squadron/weapon system and I feel like I'm completely starting over at this base.  I have just as much experience as the guy I've been crewed with, but sometimes I'm treated like I just fell off the turnip truck!  Although I like the people I work with, it's pretty clear that the squadron I was in previously was a much tighter group, and there are just some things that have been happening to me in my new squadron that would never have happened to me in my old squadron.  I can be pretty frustrating, but I try to look at it as an opportunity to bring my experience in and possibly change things for the better.

So...anyone ever had a job they liked and still thought about leaving? 

When I first enlisted in the Air Force, I worked in a high-tech electronics careerfield.  Since about 3 years ago when I got my commission and a job in Space & Missiles, not to mention a Top Secret Clearance, I've become even more marketable.  I have some friends who have gotten out of the Air Force, or have gotten comparable civilian jobs and make a lot more money than I have in the Air Force.  Those same friends have even tried to recruit me and have told me that their companies would hire me in a heartbeat.  I have to admit it's a good feeling, and the temptation is always there, but since I put so much time into the Air Force thus far, plus I'm doing important work and do enjoy it, that I'll at least stick it out 8 more years.

I heard that George Lucas cut her out of the movie once he found out about her being in Playboy.

I tried to find info on her character at the official site, but it's not there.

I don't know if these would work, but Parksabers makes a display stand for their sabers that holds the blade.

I don't know if the FX blade is detachable or not, but if so, they could be an option.

I usually don't use them, but I got one off of the official site.  It's of Anakin and Obi-Wan duelling....it's pretty cool looking.

Sorry to hear that Chewie.  My cat's a little over two years old (I found her when she was a kitten) and I know I'd be mortified if something were to happen to her.

Pets are as much a part of the family as any person, again, I'm sorry for you loss.

The announcers made some Star Wars comments towards the end of the race as well.

Jeff Gordon even thanked Yoda in the winner's circle.  ;D
