Happy Star Wars Day

At 12:01 AM tomorrow morning the final installment of Star Wars will open to the general public. Trust me, I won't be there. I'm not interested in dressing up like an Ewok. (Though, I'm embarrassed to admit that I did dress up as Princess Leia for a very bad spoof-skit in graduate school. I even put my hair in buns over my ears.) I'm not a rabid Star Wars fan, but I do like the movies and I will probably see Revenge of the Sith this weekend. There is something about these movies that compels me to see them. Maybe I want to see them because the original trilogy was such a big deal when I was growing up.

I honor of the movie opening, I'm sharing this photo:

That's an over-exposed me with the REAL Yoda--i.e. the Muppet Yoda that was used in The Empire Strikes Back, not the computer-generated Yoda of The Phantom Menace or Attack of the Clones. The photo was taken a few years ago at an exhibit of Star Wars props that was in the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. Thankfully, George Lucas allowed people to take photos at the exhibit.

I'm trying to talk DH into going with me. I'm like you, I'm not a rabid fan, but enjoy them movies.

Brotherling wants to go. I'm probably tagging along. As much as I hate being a sheep... why not.

Yoda looks taller than you are. I'm having a hard time not commenting about this. Suppose I just failed to refrain from commenting. dang.
