    Best photo I could get. Pretty disappointed in the event. The first is the full photo, the second is cropped.

    having seen the one back in the 90s, i didn't plan either. fortunately i work with a lot of geeks, so in true lemming-like fashion i went out and looked through borrowed glasses. i'm glad i did ~ it was fun and it's always amazing to be a part of something bigger than ourselves--even for a couple of minutes.

    guess that's why Star Wars is likewise so special. : D
