CIV Day 2 - A Good Kind of Tired

I think all of us attending CIV are becoming acquainted with the true meaning of exhaustedness. We're tired, but it's a good kind of tired.

The day started with a visit to the R2 Builders Room by Kenny Baker and his companion. Kenny was given his honorary membership plaque, as well as a hat, book and shirt.

Mike competed in the droid races with his customized drivetrain, but even his Speed Racer outfit wasn't enough to win.

I got to hang out for part of the day with some of the guys, along with Chris Bartlett as C-3PO. Chris is a great C-3PO. In order to get Chris, er, I mean 3PO, around from place to place, we used a cart.

Later, we crashed in on Anthony Daniels' autograph area, and he had fun with us.

G4 was broadcasting live from CIV, and dragged R2 and 3PO onto the show. After 20 minutes of not showing them, R2 and 3PO got up during a commercial break and left! We had better things to do.

We had fun with various Star Wars celebrities, and Mike let them take a turn driving with R2 and posing for pictures.

Much to my delight, I was able to have Kenny Baker sign my back panel.

Finally, we returned to the R2 Builders room, where Don Bies caught up with Chris Bartlett for a short chat.

We wrapped up by showing some video we shot during the day.

As I said, a very tiring day, but lots of fun.
