We're in Star Wars Insider #99 !!!!!


I just checked the mail, and there was this thick envelope marked air mail. Drove back to the house as quick as possible without breaking any laws or landspeed records... Woke Red up. ( yah, its late, I've just gotten off the nightshifts so I'm up and she's sleeping) Tore open the package and there they were! Five copies of issue #99...the bounty hunter edition.
Our interview is near the back in the mail bag section. Its a page and a half!! SWEEEEEEEEEEEEET! I cant believe I'm acctually holding it my hands.
We both cheered and kissed a lot, got all giggly and clapped our hands...
The interview is great! They mentioned we are from Caledonia...and I got my CBC plug in too! LOL!! They didn't use my Chuck Palahniuk quote though, ...but who cares now? We did it! Our little inside joke got us into the Star Wars Insider magazine. I gotta say... I owe it all to the greatest wife in the world.... Red made all this possible by being so damn cool.
The greatest woman a geek like me could ever marry.

Guess I should also thank:

Jonny's Mom: thanks mom for taking me to star wars over and over again and buying me a fortune's worth of toys, which helped fund George Lucas to make the rest of the films.. :P
For buying the lightsabers for our wedding and not thinking for a second there was anything wrong with that. Youre the greatest mom. We love you.

Red's Mom: For being so supportive of our crazy idea and actually putting on the helmet along with us.

Quake3world forums: where we posted our photos first, the only people we shared them with. And the ones who convinced us to get a flickr account.

When we grow up, we wanna be just like him. Always supportive, The first and only to write a testimonial about us....The first to let us know about our interview had been printed and scanned a copy of it to show us... and he made us a card back for future redandjonny figures! The guy is too cool for words.
