Hey, Erick, Peter's a friend of mine. If I'd known you wanted his autograph, I could've helped you out a long time ago! I'm also Rena Owen's webmaster, and I'll be sitting with her at Celebration 4. If you need help with autographs from the show, let me know.

I would like to have everyone's autograph at the show:) Especially Carrie Fisher and Anthony Daniels. But I just don't have the funds.

Well, if you can come up with some and want some help, I'm your huckleberry. Carrie's very cool, and Anthony is, well, Anthony. He's very nice to his fans. Leave a comment on one of my blogs if you want to get a hold of me, OK?
