Re: Star Wars

So, I learned yesterday that one of my wife's coworkers (mid-20s) has never seen Star Wars . That just blows my mind. If you read back a few pages you'll see my story of singing in two Star Wars: In Concert concerts in 2009. The first night, in Charleston, Anthony Daniels (he was the narrator for t...

Re: Everything but "soda" is wrong

I voted tonic, but I was being silly in doing so. I only order tonic with gin.

I don't order a soda, I order a whatever it is I want. Usually that is Dr. Pepper, sometimes it is Barq's. If there is rum, then I order coke.

I've been gaming WAY too much lately, and it may be one reason I haven't been on here in almost a year. Mostly just because I go through phases with forums and go sometimes and then don't go others, but also because I've been gaming a lot. In October I got Dishonored on the PS3, which I loved and pl...
