There has been a big shift in attitude about Star Wars in the past couple of years. I’ve never cared if people thought I was a geek or not, or whether or not that was a cool thing to be. (I wear my labels proudly: Christian, mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, artist, geek… though not necessarily in that order). But now, all of a sudden geeks are the new “cool.”
And that means people are making cool things just for us fans (ABOUT TIME!)! Pretty, geeky, cool, shiny things just for us fan-girls. Beautiful things like this Star Wars wrap bracelet.
“WAIT! WHAT?” you say. This doesn’t LOOK like a Star Wars bracelet? Take a closer look, read some of the words. I’ll wait…
Common wisdom say that you never, ever give your wife an appliance for her birthday, Christmas or anniversary. I’m lucky to have a hubby who doesn’t listen to convention, ‘cuz he gave me this spectacularly awesome DEATH STAR WAFFLE MAKER. And I want to warn you that it is so majestically incredible, I will only use all caps when referring to it.
So since today is Waffle Day in Sweden, what better way than to celebrate with DEATH STAR WAFFLES!!!!!
All I need are these 2 books.
Well those, and a relaxing family Christmas with lots of hugs and laughter.
And the bracelet my daughter hinted at making.
And for my dad to feel better.
And world peace…
And this lamp…
…and this thermos… (I do so love Steve Martin. If you have not seen it, ask for The Jerk for Christmas!)
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…
…Beyond that heav’nly light I shall fly far!”
Luke (ACT I, Scene 7), William Shakespeare’s Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope.
One of the things on my bucket list is to see all of Shakespeare’s plays, live on stage. (I’ve made a decent dent – about a dozen different plays live, plus another 10 plays recorded live on stage, or movies)
So needless to say, when M4P friend Amy sent me Ian Doescher’s, marvelous 3 book boxed set William Shakespeare’s Star Wars for Christmas last year. I squealed with surprise and delight! It’s like they were written just for me!!!
M4P friend Gene Ha will tell you this gift wrap is NOT a space slug, it is a lobster claw…
Of course he has a compelling argument… He bought the Admiral Ackbar bobble-head that was inside for me (yeah!!!), AND he created the wrapping. And as all of Gene’s fans know, Gene has a somewhat warped sense of humor, so a lobster claw wrapping makes perfect sense to him. Calamarian… Red gourmet seafood… Lobster.
