It was the same when I lived in New Mexico, Texas was on Central Time (except for the city of El Paso) and New Mexico was on Mountain Time. The way the lines are drawn, you can actually have someone living in the eastern edge of NM on Mountain Time, while another person lives to the west of them in Texas on Central Time.

1:58 am and I'm going to bed.

When I worked at MasterCard, I was speaking to someone somewhere in the east of Canada. Not sure how common this is elsewhere, but we were trying to arrange a time for the next call and to sychronize time, I asked him what time it was. He was either 1.5 hours ahead or 2.5 hours. I tried to call him on it, but I guess he has had to explain it to a lot of people that had no idea of that timezone before. Anyway, it was like maybe 2:43 pm CT and he told me it was (for this example) 3:13 pm there. I almost asked him if he was on crack.

Anyway... good luck to anyone staying up later... ttyl in the morning if this thread is still going.

Only three hours till one old and one "new to me/ABC" Power Rangers episode airs. Today we'll see if Casey (Jungle Fury Red Ranger) has what it takes to finally free Jarrod (Black Lion Warrior) from the demonic possession of the Dai Shi. Only this week's "new to me" episode and next week's "new to me" episode and I'll be done with Jungle Fury (Season 16). Then its on to RPM (Season 17) come February (Disney XD)/March (ABC).

Then after after I get done with Power Rangers for today I have a new episode of Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight to look forward to on The CW. :thumbsup:

I actually stayed up a little later than I expected watching Third Rock From the Sun, M*A*S*H, and Threes Company on TV Land. Then Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came on and I decided that I needed to get some sleep. Although, I've seen that episode before and it's a good one. They rebuild a house for a family who's dad and son are in a wheelchairs. The dad got injured in a bomb blast in Iraq and the son got paralyzed in a car wreck just a few months later. :cry:

1. ANH wave finally hitting the shelves (hopefully before TF)
2. ROTJ wave pics in SW Insider (hopefully before TF, don't know when the new issue comes out).
3. Toy Fair

totally agree with everything. To me, it's the best Luke face sculpt yet, and they ruin it with the execution of the sg robes. ...And I love sg when executed well on a figure. The grey ugnaught reminds me of this han (and others) where the half below the waist (or in Han's case, the belt) is drastically cut in, like Han was missing a couple of inches on both sides just below his stomach.

I'm a bacon man anyway, so I've never been into saugage and not overly fond of it in my gravy (but it's better than nothing).

So, I got the Leia & Chewie (don't remember if there was anything different about him) and a loose McQuarie Obi & C-3PO. I already had the last 2, but don't think I want to open them, so I bought some loose extras.

I actually got up and went to the kitchen sink, when my son came out of his room and said "I'm going to take a really quick shower". If I do the dishes, it will cause low water pressure in both the sink and the shower, plus his shower will go cold, and he will yell that to me.

[for all of you that missed the exciting news I keep bringing up... I totalled my Jeep Grand Cherokee on some ice. I tried to take on a traffic light pole and my Jeep lost. I did manage to take out a yield sign though. and I wasn't even going that fast, but lost my bumper, battery crushed a few inches back, hose cut in 2, not sure about my belts and it looks like my radiator is ok, at least no noticeable leaks. But after the first few days, it wouldn't start... I live within a 5 minute drive from work, so I htought it would be safe to drive back and forth each day. anyway]

Some people can set it so that more posts are displayed per page. I think the default is like 15 posts per page. I believe I have mine set to display 30 or 40 posts per page (I don't remember the exact numbers since I changed it 6 years ago and forgot about it). So, from my point of view, this thread is only 15 pages long (16 counting my post :p ).

ok, I'm finally back now... finished dishes, cleaning the bathroom, going shopping, eating mexican y downing muchos margaritas que fue muy bueno. Had to get some things from WalMart too, so I got the Carde/Thrawn & Xixor/Leia comic pacs and finally broke down and bought the Organas. After the margaritas, my friend/driver wanted to go to a bar for the inhabitants of the Isle of Lesbos, since she plays for their baseball team, but in the end, we decided we were so stuffed and had enough Margaritas, that we felt tired and decided to do the bar some other weekend. I tried to be a supportive friend and as much as I wanted to come home and lay down, said if she decided she wanted to go, I would go with her tonight, but that's just the kind of supportive guy I am. Willing to make the big sacrifices.

Then today I got a call from the owners of the pizza ria saying the lady had picked up her card, and had left an envelope in the drawer for me. I picked it up, brought it home and inside was a thank you card, and two $20 bills.

Now that was a surprise!!!!!!!

From what I've read, that was done as sort of a surprise for Irvin Kershner, since he always complained that the Bespin set looked claustrophobic and cheap.

I think it's one of the best SE changes and one of the main reasons that I actually prefer the SE version of ESB to the original. Lando talks about the place like it's beautiful; but how can a place be considered beautiful if it's just windowless white corridors?

Then she opens her mouth, and dang some of the stuff she says is out there sometimes.

She's definitely a poster child for D.A.R.E.

omg... whatever i just saw her on a month or two ago, i couldn't believe it... i was thinking of her during "When Harry Met Sally" or "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back" thinking those were more recent. I thought i saw somethign more recent (than those movies) with her in it not looking that bad. I couldn't believe what the last few years did to her.

That's kinda like saying that Maddona looks better today than she did in the eighties. :rolleyes:

Maybe it's the more refined taste that comes with age.:cross-eye

Yep. I know that when I was younger, I was mistaken about a great many things. ;)

Age brings a lot of clarity, doesn't it. (Cue the music: "time and hard lessons are one kind of wisdom.....")

Thank you, Alison Krauss!

Alison Krauss released an amazing album with Robert Plant.

I'm sure TeeEye knew that already.

Then I must have the most clarity, because I'm over 9,000.
