    Nutter.

    I saw Obi wan and Luke in an Italian returaunt the other day, Luke was eating spaghetti bologneise with a spoon, it was going everywhere, all over the table and his shirt, eventually Obi wan leant over and said, "use the fork, Luke, use the fork..."

    yeah, well only in recognition of a fellow inhabitee of Strangeville. A bunch of us used to have a thing based on: 'These aren't the droids you're looking for..." (in best Alec Guiness), we used it to denote anything shady or underhand...

    I think the pressure tells somedays.:D

    one thing that is quite fun; when you're walking towards automatic doors, wave your hand infront of it and say 'open' - kinda makes me feel like a jedi.

    Hmm, speak like yoda i must

    seriously, that asciimation site, that dude has waaaaay too much spare time on his hands, impressive though.

    you know i'm gonna have to do that door thing too right? lol, sad sad sad

    so yeah, what are star wars fans called? (i wouldn't put us in the same league as trekkies though, i'd say the sadness level isn't as high :p )

    I think that it is great that you keep in contact with your friend in England. How long has this tradition continued?

    eh, it's not difficult, i mean, i have a phone plan and it costs me about 9c a minute, and i consider that expensive, i can get calling cards that are literally a penny a minute :) (heh, literally )
    i guess it's been going on since i knew the lad, let's see, i'd just left school....about 8 years??? :)
