This one will be short. Ruf is a geek, and I confess to being a closet geek, which really just means that I consider myself way too cute and preppy to be considered a true geek. ;-) I mean, I was a cheerleader long ago! LOL
The guidebooks, as well as people in the UK Garrison of the 501st Legion (Ruf's stormtrooper group), all said that if you're into sci-fi, you must visit Forbidden Planet. It is a super-cool bookstore/toy store filled with all things sci-fi. We spent a happy hour or so in this place. What I would have given to have all those sets of Doctor Who on DVD!
I took some pictures of Ruf standing outside the store. I still haven't figured out how to take a good picture at night. If I used the flash, it came out blurry. If I didn't use the flash, it was clear but dark. So, I give you one of each. You can actually see the store's name in the blurry picture, but you can see the merchandise in the window more clearly in the dark one.
