A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away...

Last night, as my friend and I were unloading and loading my dishwasher, my StormTrooper spatula popped out of nowhere.

"oh no," I thought! "My friend is going to think I am ridiculous."

He asks, "Is that a stormtrooper? Is it yours?"

I respond sheepishly that it was, and I explain quickly how I came to receive it.

Then he asked, "Have you read all the books?"

I again, sheepishly, respond in the positive. And then,

he announces that he OWNS all of them!

ALL OF THEM! This is beyond amazing and rather spectacular. This somewhat magnificent connection led us to discuss and dive into our pasts, ... our rather nerdy pasts. It was a blast, and a definite positive boost to my weekend.

Star Wars is great.
The Extended Universe is grand.

And I am glad (and extremely proud) that Star Wars is a part of my life. It makes me smile.

I mean a quote from one of the latter books is my email signature, Hello! It's great.

Um, I have a storm trooper spatula and I am not ashamed of it. If someone cares that you have a whimsical kitchen utensil then you need to stop caring about that someone because they suck.

Also, I have a storm trooper spatula because Travis bought it for me.

I have a Jedi ROBE and made lightsaber hilts from plumbing supplies because I wanted to be Jedi.

Do I care if people know that about me, either? No way. I sometimes wear that Jedi robe around my apartment because it is comfortable. I have even answered the door for the pizza delivery guy and the FedEx guy while wearing my too-big Jedi Robe.

Love the Yamagata.
