Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Do You Still Use (Or Have) a VCR?
« on: December 1, 2006, 07:05 AM »
We have a VCR/DVD combo in the living room.  We also have a PS2, Dish network, and a DVD player.  We haven't even plugged in the VCR since moving and probably won't.  When we need the DVD player, we have the PS2 and DVD.  If we want to record something, we have two TV's with DVR cabability.  So, like I said, we'll probably never plug in the VCR combo.

Rob, I have sold just about all of my modern stuff in the past couple of years. With the exception of one botched transaction for Ep I stuff, everything went pretty smooth.

I divided all my stuff into lines, POTF2, Ep I, POTJ, and Saga.  The Saga went first when I was selling followed by POTJ, POTF2, and Ep I, which I still have now.  I sold all of the stuff on eBay, knowing I wouldn't get all my money back, but happy to get something for it and get it out of my house.  If you want to sell fastest, put an entire line on ebay with a decent BIN and you may get some people to bite.

Otherwise, I suggest do as someone else (Bill maybe?) suggested and divide the stuff into lots of 10-20 or just donate some of them to a kids program for Christmas.  I'll be donating much of my Ep I to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots.

That sucks man.  Thank God for disability and a pretty good insurance plan from my job.  At least if I got hurt (depending on the injury) I could still work in some capacity.

Lately, I've taken a rather large hiatus from collecting and have r  arely been visiting the net for SW related stuff.  I've spent some good SW money on a couple of softball bats.

I've played a ton of ball, 2-3 nights a week from spring until fall, but until this year never got ate up like I am now about playing.  I can't wait for game night to get here.

Anybody else around here play ball?  Anyone very serious about it?

Fun job Matt.  Do you get to spend days on end with the SP's down in the silo's?  I never got the "joy" of missile field duty, but I did spend quiet a bit of time watching fighters sit on the flightline and checking ID's at the front gate.

Anyway, I teach 8th grade US History.  This is my 6th year doing that and for the most part I love it even though I'm beat at the end of the day.

Jesus Christ, I was just pointing out that he was acting like and ass in his post.

He was being a smartass and I was calling it how I saw it.

Sorry 'bout that cockbite. Just for you, I'll type a bit better. 


Didn't you get a suspension recently for acting like that?

It's kids that act like you that make life so difficult for so many people.  Just accept the statement for what it was worth, close your mouth and go about your business.  Take a little criticism, grow some thicker skin, and get over it.

And that same stuff gets drilled to the students as well... ::)

Yup, but you try to be creative in your approach to teaching so it is interesting to the kiddos.

Where do you teach?  I'd love not being forced to teach to a state test all the time.  That gets drilled into us for the entire staff development each year.

Good luck starting off in high school.  Teaching is more demanding than anyone will ever know that hasn't done it before, but it's also well worth it.

As for me, "back to school" this year has been something I've been dreading.  I've had a busy summer dealing with the passing of my father in law and purchasing a home, so I haven't really had a chance to rest from last year. I also transferred from one school district to another so I've had to move all my classroom stuff.

Teachers went back to work in my district on Monday, and many went back on the 27th of July if they were elementary or new teachers.  Lucky for me, I've got some expirience and was able to miss out on most everything the new teachers did.

However, I'm getting more in the groove and ready for a new year of challenges.  I really like the place that I transferred to and it is a more upbeat and less stressful school that where I was before.  So, I'm having mixed feelings about school starting back.  I'm excited for the new kids, but also still a bit worn out from a summer that didn't last very long.

Next year though, Texas teachers will have until about the third week of August for vacation with the new legislation saying kids can't come back until the 4th Monday of August.  Woohoo!!

This is the last figure I need to complete my basic run of Han on each cardback, before I get into variations.  Can anyone hook me up for a decent price?
