Do you talk about what happens here to others?
« on: June 18, 2003, 12:05 PM »
Be it your spouse, your family, your other non-SW friends?

My buddies tease me incessantly about my "On-Line Star Wars buddies" even though we belong to a group of "On-Line Fantasy Football Buddies" as I like to point out.  I like to point out little know facts and cool things I pick up here, show them some of the latest new toys coming out etc.

I sometimes talk with my wife about a humorous incident that happened or Matt's Bulky Sweater but usually about the time her eyes glaze over I stop and then she teases me a little

Oh yes, I definitely do. My anecdotes don't always translate well to people, though. I know about the "eyes glazing over" thing.

Just my wife really.  You are my "little star wars friends" to her.  Pretty funny really.  She finds the chat sessions mildly amusing, though she's not that fond of Matt anymore.  IN life, timing is everything. ;)

NO. YOU ARE ALL MY CAREFULLY GUARDED SECRET. YOU WILL NOT SPEAK OF THIS PLACE TO OTHERS.

To stay on topic, the only people I talk about my internet-goings-on (or going-ons) with are the people in my head.

Last night, a tip at Rebelscum's "Look what I found" section landed me my first two Red Battle Droids ever. I wouldn't have checked the store if I hadn't visited the thread.

 I've been buying accessory packs to build my army...waiting and salivating for the day when I could finally start with the single carded versions for 4.79 instead of 9.99 for the one with all the extra junk.

So when I found these thanks to a tip online, I went home and bragged to my girlfriend about how cool the boards are...etc, etc.

"That's nice" she said.


I've also told people certain pieces of trivia I've learned at various boards....which usually gets me a nice blank stare. I don't think most people understand the communities here, but I sure like em.

I talk to the wife about certain things that happen here. I to get the blank stare and the thats nice. She doesn't mind my collecting or being online at the sites, she just doesn't see the draw to it all.  In respect I probably give her the same look when she talks about her job and dealings with her customers.

Only the wife knows about my doings in here. She even popped in the chat room briefly a couple weekends ago.  ;D

I talk about some of this stuff with online friends who I actually see in the real world.  But not with anyone else.

Yeah, but only because her favourite guy was in there.   ;D  Ahem.  No word on the sweatshirt yet, most of what I've seen has been crap.  Not sending that.  

I do also talk to the other geek here in the office, the only other collector within talking distance.  He's reluctant to go online for some reason.  Totally computer competent, just doesn't seem to like online discussion.  Oh well.

The first rule of JD.com is you don't talk about JD.com.

Just with my family.  On occasion I'll talk about it with my girlfriends (if we are shopping and I have to stop at Target for a tip I read about) and they just roll their eyes and laugh.

Very seldom do I mention it because I know others could care less.  That is unless they are Star Wars fans.   My lease ran out 2 months ago.  I'm living with the parents until I get married in November.  Then I'll live with her.  So, I got an Ephant Mon in the male from the classifieds on this site.  I was forced to explain how I got this figure delivered to my parent's home.  I faced the parental interrogation of who it was that sent me the package, how much was it, how do I know the person, etc.

It was pretty funny really.  They were thinking the worse of course.  Until I told them I only paid $6 and sent a check.  Then they acted like those Star Wars sites are ok afterall. LOL!
