Dallas - Star Wars I & II watching party

and all will be explained by Skittles. This is a gathering to "catch up" on the Star Wars universe before Episode III comes out.

And it is going to be potluck style, so signup inside.

So we need a date and a place. I propose April 30th.

Here's the master post for all the information on the weekend.

Schedule

Tentatively, the plan for Star Wars weekend is:

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.

I said the 30th was a suggestion the 7th or 14th work fine with me.

Plan quickly. I may decide to plan a trip over a weekend to scope out potential areas. Or to woo Skittles. Or something.

I don't think you need to "woo" Skittles. I hear he is easy.

I'm out the 8th-10th of April, but other than that I think I'm flexable.

Anyone want to volunteer to have this? My house is a dinky 1200 sqft and would not accommodate everyone.

May 14th, perhaps?

And you know, you HAVE been meaning to have us all over and show off your new TV and HD system. This might just be a good opportunity.

I'd offer my place but it's tiny. I do have a big ass widescreen TV though. The offer's on the table if we are talking a handful of people.

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.

Speaking as a former Californian, I think it would be great if you moved here, Ed. It's so nice, and quiet. You'd be amazed at how peaceful it is here, when compared with a lot of places in SoCal.

And may I just say that, if you do come down here, be it for recon purposes or an actual move, you will always have a personal escort in me.
