Dave - Set of 12 tickets, plus set of 6 coins ($30.50)

Sharon, did you still want the set, and if so, did you want the coins too? LMK!
So I hit about 20-25 liquor stores on the way home from the office tonight. Managed to complete my set finally. Started and finished Adam's set. Two away from completing Dave's set. Managed 4 coins for us three as well (Luke, Leia, R2 & Yoda). Now that Jim's chimed in to confirm again, I'll start working on his set of loot tomorrow.
But damn this is a bitch to do! I only found one other store that was willing to let me pick which tickets I wanted (as in they'd detach them from the middle of the strip). Unfortunately, they only had ONE ticket that we needed. But I think now that I've seen just how many liquor stores are on my way home (if I take sidestreets and not the freeway), I think I should be able to cover everybody's needs, even with the ridiculously strict rules on only taking the next available ticket.
A bigger problem that I've encountered, is that out of all the stores I've hit, I've only found one
single person (a Korean fella) who spoke sufficient enough English to understand what I was actually trying to do. Holy crap, what a pain! I might as well be trying to do this in a foreign country... Not to mention, I may get shot at some of the less than savory places I've been stopping at. So just know that I'm actually risking my life
to get you guys your sets!
Stay tuned, and I'll keep you posted on where things stand. Also, I assume you'd all prefer that I wait 'til the last couple coins come out before I send your stuff? That may be another couple weeks still though...
