Here's the master post for all the information on the weekend.
Tentatively, the plan for Star Wars weekend is:
11:00AM - 4:30PM: Star Wars DVD viewings at bsnelson's friend's pad (location TBA). We will be having a BBQ lunch, with folks chipping in a few dollars each to help cover costs.
4:30PM: Head to the Cinemark Legacy in Plano to get in line for the movie
7:00PM: Episode III in DLP
If you have not bought tickets yet, please do so ASAP, using this link. You want the 7:00PM showing in DLP (DLP has its own separate listing). Tickets are $8.25 per adult, $5.25 for children and seniors. There is a 75 cent surcharge for ordering online.
Attendance list for the DVD viewings & Episode III:
Either way, as long as we can hang out, I'm happy.
(Are you seriously considering moving here??? WOW!)
Certainly one possibility - I'm trying to get a rough feel for different areas so I can scope them out seriously at a later point. As much as I enjoy the weather out here, the cost of living is just obnoxious, and with housing prices what they are, I don't see that I'm going to be able to get a detached home with a reasonable amount of square footage here at the price that I need. At least elsewhere, I can cash out the equity on my condo and have a minimal house payment.
I've been in California my whole life, so as silly as it sounds, it's reasonably important to me that when I check out areas to also be around people that I have some familiarity with.
