My hubby is nothing, if not a thoughtful man. Why else would he get me the new Game of Thrones season set, EVERY year for my birthday…. Why else would he happily enable my Star Wars Lego Mini-fig habit? Why on earth would he rewire all our Internet cables in the house so we, I mean I, could get caught up on Breaking Bad on Netflix before the last season started on TV, if it wasn’t out of love for me?
And if giving your wife the complete series set of Battlestar Galactica “just because,” isn’t romantic, then I don’t know what is…
Well, maybe Star Wars Jewelry…
When you are in the habit of making food “art”. You are in constant search of appropriate food “glues” that last and don’t need to be refrigerated right away. Marshmallow cream, soy or peanut butter, and melted chocolate have been the go-tos up to this point. But my new favorite is spray cheese!

Star Wars was huge, it was revolutionary! It was a social event! These days we all get our news and entertainment fixes from such varied sources, that it is hard to imagine that we will ever have such a common entertainment experience again. That blue black/gold white dress had everyone talking… But it will be forgotten in a few weeks. The last season of Breaking Bad was big, but still nowhere near the “Who shot JR” experience. So the Death Star, was, huge! Not just in size on screen, but also in impact. There are other newer sci-fi movies that might rival Star Wars in quality, fun and even entertainment value. However the Star Wars trilogy, is common experience that will be remembered, long after those other sci-fi movies have been forgotten.
There are 4 things you have to have when throwing a Star Wars party: Grey spray paint, black sharpie, blue painter’s (or electrical) tape, and duct tape. Armed with those in your tool belt, you can improvise and take care of most Star Wars party related “emergencies”.
