I just got an IM from someone claiming to be Greg from the Star Wars Line inviting us blogging.la’ers to a Dessert Potluck at the line this Saturday at 6PM. Desserts only, because Nerds only eat pizza and dessert and have had their fill of pizza. At first I thought this was nice of them to extend the olive branch like that (do they have olive branches on degobah?), inviting us to hang with them at the line and eat their desserts and then the other shoe dropped…
“ps – tell them not to bring any sabotaged desserts lol”
Who? Us? Sabotaging desserts???
I explained that it’s not a pot luck unless there’s some luck involved but he didn’t seem convinced. Then I said I’d see if Jessica wanted to go to and he said they already invited her. Not only that, it turns out they have agreed to make it in her honor and have promised her a throne and rapping frodo-nerdo dude. WTF is that all about?
So I asked what about us? What are we, chopped liver? Turns out, yes, that’s about right. Figures.
Anyway, the invite is there and the potluck should start at 6PM and run until “the wee hours” which translated from Nerd means about 8:15PM. Yes the pot luck will take place out on the sidewalk in front of Graumans where the line still is. In anticipation, I’m going to go drop off a box of twinkies at Arclight.
UPDATE: Uh oh… Jessica is requiring the Nerds to sign a contract for her appearance. Will they do it??
