    Sounds like there is still some good stuff happening. Major congratulations all around! And for those of you finding mates, pass on some of that magic to me, please. I am tired of being single!

    I have good news to add as well.. I've lost 15 pounds since January, and yes, I had to cut a whole new belt for my current SW costume (Jedi, don't shoot!). Lost it the healthy way, no pills or whatever. Just no microwave food, that forced me to cook and I cook badly, so I ate less.

    I'm also approaching the halfway point on the elite Luminara effort, and thanks to all the outstanding people on these boards, I have 90 percent of the Zam materials either on the way or ordered.

    TDH rocks!

    Funny you mention that. It has been a while since I logged on to TDH. Mainly because of the events that has taken place the past few months. (Personal stuff)

    love my job and am making enough money to support my costuming habit. I've learned how to wire LEDs and fans, completed 1/3 of a Master Chief costume which I am building from scratch, have started a new workout and diet plan which will work wonderfully, and am in a secure and happy relationship.

    I got most of my bad luck out of the way in '06.

    Yes, Misery loves company, but that is not always a bad thing. Sometimes it helps to know other people are going through *stuff* too and the big thing to remember is we go "through" it. We do eventually make it to the other side.

    I am glad to have a place to vent. I am also glad to hear of the joy others have. It helps!
    It helps when I am having a good day to hear the "good news" stories. It helps to give hope, should I be on the down side of the day. It also helps to know we are all in the same boat. No matter what part of the globe we live in and what our "status" in life is.

    It is great to share our disappointments so we can encourage and help. One of the best ways to pull out of a funk, is to do something for someone else. It can really make your day to make someone else smile. Try it! It is contagious!


    I am glad to be a part of this great community!

    I'm one of those people here whose had these situations too. I can come here for support, and I will give it to the other members here, too. However, things have been decent, so far. I've recently also came closer to have my Scout done too

    Well, to continue the trend of crud on the helmet... Last night our new house was burglarized and they stole all our sinks, faucets, electrical fixtures, cieling speakers, tools and even my $400 ladder. The really bad news is that none of it was insured. We are 14k over budget and sinking fast...Heck, whats another 7k in the hole just to catch back up. I still have my wife and kids. Money will come and go.

    Aw, jeez! That's freaking terrible! How far back does that push your plans to move into your new house?
    Dang dude, so sorry to hear that. Being a cop, I'm sure you want to bring justice to the jerks who did that.

    Oh wow Boomer, that sucks. :c I hope they do catch whom ever did that to you, that's horrible, it's gotta be tough enough that it's taken so long, not to mention that stuff happens to you on top of it.

    As for me, well, I can't say I can complain, I'll have 3 weddings I'll be in this year, another niece on the way and have maintained my 4.0 in college. But I guess I can complain how it looks like after 3 years of a long distance relationship (he in NC, I in CO), we still can't gather the means (well money) to be with each other quite yet, again. Ugh.

    All in all, not bad really. Just the long distance thing that can be frustrating, I can only imagine. But hang tight, it will be soon right?

    Justice will be swift. It just sets us further in debt. You would think the idiot would know who's house he was burglarizing. He wore gloves and he thought he was smart. Well, even putting on gloves you transfer DNA and I am sure that while he was in a 90 degree house stripping things out as fast as he could he wiped his brow with his gloved hand. His DNA is all over the house. Would we normally swab for DNA on a simple second degree burg. Nope. Friends in low places, thats all I have to say.

    Thanks for the words and good luck with the long distance thing. I know those are tough. Congrats on the 4.0 though!!!!

    Hey Boomer, share the good news about how those burglars got caught!

    But in other (more depressing) news, the world IS out to get me right now. Totaled my car last Thursday. I'm going to be selling all of my Boba stuff soon, to try to get some extra money.

    Don't sell it all off yet brother. Remember Karma my friend. As Pete eluded to, justice is in the galaxy once again. A builder in OKC that had been getting burglarized frequently got fed up and placed a GPS in an expensive stove in one of his new homes...then sat back and watched his laptop as the stove drove away. It led to a warrant being executed and the fence operation was brought down. The Fence gave up everyone that was selling to him as well. Needless to say I got about 80% of my stuff back and I know the perps who need justice in their lives. Karma is a real BOOGER!!!

    Head up Pete. The true measure of a man is not how he holds his head in good times but how he does in the bad times.

    Re: Is the world out to get us?

    Well I have to say that I am extremely lucky I walked away without a single scratch on me. Ok, a few tiny scratches from shattered glass, but nothing serious. Although my car is trashed, the only part of me hurt, is my pride. lol

    I think the only things I will keep will be my flightsuit and vest, since they are custom made to fit my frame. I'd have a hard time selling those to somebody they'd fit.
    I want to keep them as a constant reminder to finish my Fett one day...
