Two years ago, Sperry came out with appropriate footwear; I got a pair.

I've already talked to two people who didn't know what Star Wars Day was all about. It's been around for years.

Luckily, Star Wars day is followed by Whiskey day.

Just a reminder that the secondary Star Wars day that you can jump on last minute in case you forgot to do something on May 4 (or if you are more of a Darth) is "Revenge Of The Sixth".

Not, as some mistakenly assume, Revenge Of The Fifth, which is not a thing. That's already reserved as Cinco de Mayo.

I watched the film on Saturday. When Darth Vader mentions Obi-Wan, one of his lackeys says "Obi-Wan Kenobi? Surely he must be dead by now." I so wanted Vader's next line to be (everybody say it): He is not dead. And don't call me Shirley.

I'm a May Fourth baby, and I still try to wear my "May The Fourth Be With You" shirt every year. Except this year, I was dressed in my Shabbat clothing on actual May 4, so instead I'm wearing it now for my birthday dinner tonight.

So "Cinco" is Spanish for "hold"? Never knew that before; thanks for fighting ignorance.

Bootiful day in the PNW and supposed to get into the upper 80s by Thursday. Too hot for this old Alaskan. But for now, it's just gorgeous. Peonies are blooming and the roses are coming. Plus, I'm back to wearing shorts; always a pleasure to shed the winter clothing.

Did you ever notice that almost every line from Star Wars can be made better if you include the word "pants"?

I find your lack of pants disturbing.

You are unwise to lower your pants.

Your father wanted you to have pants when you were old enough

We have no choice, our pants can't repel firepower of that magnitude.

Evacuate?! In our pants of triumph?

I'd just as soon pants a Wookiee!

Phew! And I thought pants smelled bad... on ... the outside...!

You came in those pants? You're braver than I thought.

Your pants, you will not need them

These aren't the pants you're looking for

They're on Dantooine. Your pants are on Dantooine

Will someone get these big walking pants out of my way?

I'll just put these pants on Chewbacca... *ROAAARRR!*...Uh, I mean you put the pants on Chewbacca.

Happy!
May the fourteenth.
Be with you.

I wish I knew about this pun when I was ten years old. I would have made it(ten days ago) the most important hollliday of the year. I'd dress like a Jedi, drink nerf juice and eat ewok burgers. Every day.

But then what would happen when I got around to reading the Hobbit? Hobbits can't be Jedi. Puppets can, but there has never been a Hobbit Jedi. I hope I'm not up all night thinking about this.

So that's where my post went. Could have sworn I was in the MMP thread.
