Touring the Spice Mines Of Kessel this last weekend I discovered that it may be helpful to obtain an EUCast t-shirt to wear to places with young impressionable minds. This way my very presence is a subject of conversation. And unlike most other times this time will be SW based and not "look what that crazy dude's doing over there" kind of thing.

At worst I'll stain the shirt.

And make a pillow out of it!

EUCast Pillow for the win!

*Oh oh pillow is calling my head right now in fact!

On the one hand, I am slightly worried that even our admin is going to the Dark Side of visiting another forum, but on the other, I'm quite tickled pink that he comes back with a pretty nifty idea. I know this isn't how this thread works (hopefully I can be forgiven, just this once), but I'm giving 100 Life Points to OMB for sheer moxi.

Luckily, I have a little story for this thread. I was in town with a couple of friends; one of which was my friend, whom we call Blackadder. This stems from his surname, which is spelt 'Hadhe', but is pronounced 'add-er', and we connected that to the TV show, Blackadder. Anyway, that's not the point. The point is that, though we understand how to pronounce it properly, many don't, and one example cropped up yesterday, which was quite humorous, yet slightly iffy.

We went to the bank because Graeme (that's Blackadder's first name. Don't worry, I asked him if I could retell this, first) was having difficulties with his bank account. The bank was very busy, and so he put his name down in the ledger, and then we all sat down together, waiting. Eventually, it came to be his turn, however, the man who called out his name, of course, pronounced it wrongly. So very wrongly. He called out, 'Mr G. Had.'

Which, as you can imagine, was not the best thing to call out in a crowded public place, and the other customers went deathly quiet, but quickly my friends and I defused the situation. Luckily the others managed to see the funny side!

Let me guess. That's what we call "gabachos" (said with due respect, I don't want to insult anyone here), right? But our expression is a bit older. Well, in fact, it's much more older than from 1995. But, hey, they are our neighbors, after all.


Hey, they're our neighbours, too. But we don't mind being rude to them! Indeed, in my local dialect, 'ferriners' (our pronunciation of the word 'foreigners') means other Englanders, but ones that aren't from around here - especially Londoners. And 'Frenchies' are our term for actual foreigners - even ones not from France!

I'm quite liking this thread. By hook or by K'Kruhk, I shall win this thread!

What can I do to prove it? What do you want as a proof? A typical recipe? A picture? A turistic tour without moving from your couch?

Hmm. You could write on a bit of paper 'I am Nedara, I live in Theed' and put it at a place which can be identified as the Theed we know of, then take a picture of it?

You could even include a newspaper with the date on it. Do it in the classic mafia style Laughing .

Or I could give you the information about the Plaza. I mean, something like...

It was designed by Anibal González for the Iberoamerican Exposition in 1929. Alhough the original desing was a complete circle -very much like we see it in the movie-, it was decided to make just half building, with a little tower in each end.

The little canal was open by convicted people in the decade of the 20s.

It has 50 bench, representing the 50 Spanish provinces, arranged in alphabetical order. Each bench has the map, the... scutcheon?... and a scene of the History of the province it represents. I made some pictures for a friend from Vigo, in Pontevedra, last year, so they are from the Pontevedra bench.





Currently, the building is divided in 3 zones. One tower belong to the autonomic government. The other one, to the national government and the central part is for the army.

Is that enough?

PS. If you have not reconogized the place yet, maybe some pictures of my local group in our website can help you...

I also own a Super Nintendo with Super Mario, Super Return of the Jedi, Mortal Kombat 1, 2 and 3, Street Fighter, etc., and I own a Sega Genesis with Sonic 1 and 2, Echo the Dolphin, etc.

Completely unrelated, I was complemented at school this week for my Stormtrooper keychain someone finally noticed hanging from my bag. And it was a total stranger. And a girl. So how about that. Cool

Blackadder!! I was so stoked to see that on Netflicks! Blackadder II is still my Favorite one. With the Whiteadders when they showed up in the middle of his Drinking game and Baldrick was all worried about where he was going to get the blood for the invites written in blood!

I'm in the running for a writing contract to write a Halo short story for the new 'Halo Evolutions' anthology, does that score me points or do I actually have to get included?


Sweet, Caedus!

If I may ask, how? I'd like to know because I'm trying to become a career writer myself. I've had a few jobs (with more non-profit ones than I'd like to admit) but not enough to sustain a living off of. I'm terrible at searching for jobs. Could you give me a little advice? Please? I'll beg. Seriously, I would!

Negative points! Hahahaha...

Alright, after scouring the web for more awful pictures, I had a change of heart and found something cool instead.
