[quote="MariaH"][i missed my chance to hold the flag that night] but its all good! :-)[/quote]

When Bob appeared with it, unfortunately the clusterfuck of crowds made it hard to get back to you. I'm afraid I had to go with the folks within throwing distance. Sorry, Maria!

[quote="DirtyMartini"]So I grabbed the Flag and got BABA's John Hancock. The very last signature collected on said rag belongs to BABA.[/quote]

Kellie --

Thank you so much for supremely commanding the Flag project and for going out of your way to let me get on board when the ship was ready to sail.

You are too kind. And too modest too.

I could finally read the end of the story. And I can only say, thank you Kellie!!! You should write a short story about this great year and the Flag project, compilling all the great moments that you made us lived. It has been an honor to be part of this.

[quote]At least as of Monday evening, a ratty green flag had been spotted (and likely pointed at) in a studio in the state of California, its gong-awful shade of green visually polluting the elegant earth tones of the surrounding decor. [quote]

Ooooooh, touchdown!!!! :D :D

Guess he carried it home in the carry on :wink:

He probably had that big ol' Stewart smile on his face when he read all the names on the back. I can see him getting a big cup of coffee and sitting down, "No calls. I'm looking at my flag." :)



Kel, this tour was obviously going to be a big deal for Stewart. I think the flag made it even more memorable for him.

Thanks for I-can't-even-imagine-how-many hours of work and logistics and lost sleep you've endured. I've had a lot of fun flag bearing, muling, sighting and, maybe the best part, watching the smile spread across The Man's face.



BTW, I think the International Olympic Committee is looking for someone to coordinate the passing of the torch for the next Olympics. :lol:
Stewart and Stanley together again!! YO!

I've just sat down to read the final instalments of this tale!!!

WOW!!!! :shock:

DM... thank you so much for being flag mistress....

And for telling us this story!! WOW!!!

Without you (and moe for painting the flag!) this whole tour wouldn't have been as much fun and emotional for so many people!

We've joined together like no other group of people I have ever met....

We've all LOVED everyone's flag tales, and pre/post meet ups. etc...

But by far and away this story is just the best......

Dm go and lie down somewhere dark and quiet......

Thank you lady!!!

Kimmy

Can you imagine? How much would that rock??

"Don't get any liquids near the torch!"
"Don't be an asshat with the torch!"

:lol: :lol:

Man, you guys are cheering me up this morning.

[quote="TheEqualizer"][quote="bella"][quote="TheEqualizer"]I can imagine the ending of "The Flag: the Movie":

The concert at MSG is over; the fat lady has sung. As Stewart (played by Hugh Laurie) does his final points to the crowd, the camera focuses in on the The Flag. As the camera focuses out, you see that we are now in Stewart's studio 4 months later. He is in there working on his symphony. He is a bit frustrated, but then he looks over and The Flag catches his eye. There is a twinkle in his eye, a grin comes to his face, then he does a slow little point to flaggie.

Roll credits.

:D[/quote]


YES! Classic!


OR! It could START by panning out from the flag in his studio with him sitting there working on his symphony and THEN go back in time to explain it from the beginning.

[/quote]

Now THAT'S an idea. :D

I was just thinking about casting.

Mos Def as Ska Man
Peter Mayhew as Tamadude (if you google that, it makes total sense)
Kirstie Alley as PoliceRule
Gedde Wantanabe as Takashi (just ask Meg if she agrees with that casting)

Hmmm. . . .[/quote]

Nicole Kidman as visions :D (An Aussie for an aussie)

a skinny visions like in her younger days......well not that skinny...... :oops:
