Fridays are best spent at home

Oh how I wish the work day was over. I cannot wait for my weekend to begin, despite the fact that it will be pretty jam packed with obligations. I've got to finish up the website I'm making for the wedding, go to Elizabeth's birthday party and have easter brunch on Sunday at Heather's parent's house.

The wedding website has been a real pain, because I couldn't get the online RSVP thing working for the longest time. I also have to put up our registries and make the whole thing look nice before Heather sends it out for all of our guests to see. I hope to tackle that project by sometime tomorrow afternoon.

I did not one but TWO radio shows this week. That's pretty cool

In other news, I'm working on a Rebel Pilot costume for Star Wars Celebration 3, along with a bunch of others who are going from Seattle with us. Julie is sewing all of the vests, Badger is working on accessories for us, and the rest of us are doing our own helmets and chest boxes. The rest of it can be purchased from various places. It's a lot of work for everyone involved (I don't think any of us have the spare time to throw around) but I think when we're done it will be cool to have a whole squad of pilots walking around at the convention. Plus, it will be a lot more comfortable to wear than my Stormtrooper (which I'm also bringing).

Speaking of Star Wars, next Friday night we have a really fun event with the Stormtroopers at Toys R Us in Bellevue. The toys for Episode 3 get released that night and we're going to go out and stand out there so people can take pictures and stuff. It's going to be a great time. Plus, we also get our first crack at buying the toys before everyone else, which is very cool.

We still haven't gotten our hotel room picked out for the Wedding trip. There are a lot of choices, and we're struggling with which one is the right one for all the angles. There is the "cost" angle (this wedding is going to cost a lot, and cutting corners anywhere is great). There's the "Practicality" angle (we won't be spending a lot of time in the room). Then there's the "once in a lifetime" angle which seems to often dominate all other angles. So....we may get a nice room for most of the week then switch to a really nice one the day of (or before) the wedding until we leave. Which one that will be is still up in the air.

Last but not least, only 54 Days until Episode 3! Even though I know pretty much everything that is going to happen thanks to toys, internet spoilers and other methods that I've used to spoil the surpriseds movie for myself, I still can't wait!
