Star Wars, Movies, and Funny Business

So I might be spending more time here, writing review (which badly needs done), posting opinions (which might need done), and wasting time (which absolutely don’t need done, but I do anyways).

GoodReads, my favorite time-wasting site has applied new formatting updates, and they are not up to my likings. So, until either I get used to the changes, or they make changes I can live with, I will be spending less time there.

I have also been spending more time on another favorite that I abandoned a while back, fully intending to quit, but didn’t… ChickenSmoothie! So much fun, and I love giving away stuff at this time of year.

The other day when we stopped by Barnes & Noble, my daughter decided that she wanted something, and I believe in gimmes – that little thing you buy your kids when you go to the store so they behave and don’t ask for the expensive big thing – but her daddy don’t. So when she asked for the Snow Sleigh, and her daddy said ‘no’, she had a mini-meltdown. I tried to do the ol’ bait-n-switch, with a little tinker thing, but she wasn’t havin’ it. At all.

Until I mentioned Star Wars, and we wound up picking this:

This little girl loves anything Star Wars right now, and that just makes her daddy’s heart melt, so I knew he couldn’t say ‘no’ to this. Sucker!

Later, we watched Tyrion Lannister run around New York with Jupiter Jones while searching for Patch Adams in:

This was a moving, touching, sometimes funny movie. A real tearjerker, so make sure to cuddle with someone you care about, have a fresh box of tissues handy, and plan on telling at least one person you love them after contemplating your own mortality.

Because, what would you do if you only had 90 minutes to live?

Me?

I’d finish a good book.

Star Wars Countdown and Reviews

Are you counting down for the new Star Wars movie yet?

We already bought the tickets! (Even if they have all been gifted already… wound up with some last-minute tag-a-longs for the movie… don’t you just love when that happens?) But since they are all already given out, we may actually go and see it opening night, before the presents are given!

SO, to go about preparing for this, I am going to do (and have done) alot of Star Wars-based reading…

Lets start with this short story…

The Passions of Greedo

Forgive the image, it was the only one on the page, and not mine. I think if it were mine, it would have turned out worse. Read the story by clicking the title above, or here. Read my review on GoodReads here.

And remember, The Force is with You!
