May the Fourth Be With You

I love Star Wars!!! It was a cinematic staple growing up, as it was for many others. Star Wars is one of the earliest movies I can remember watching as a kid, besides all the old school Disney stuff. When we first got internet, the internet was still dial up, one of my favorite sites to visit was I love to just look at pictures, art, and get little insider tips.

When Star Wars Episode I came out, I have to admit I was excited. This was Start Wars for me and my generation - too bad the prequels weren't nearly as good - yet they still hold a special place in my heart. I can't tell you how many times I watched the fight (on VHS) between Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, and Darth Maul (I always wanted to be a Jedi...)

My love of Star Wars stuck with me through adolescence. As Martina and I started dating in college, I found out she hadn't seen all of any of the Star Wars, so like any good boyfriend I made her watch them (yes even Jar Jar).

What does all this have to do with today? Are you serious? It's one of the nerdist unofficial holidays celebrated around - its STAR WARS DAY!!!

So bust out your lightsaber and blaster, find a Wookie, hop aboard your T-16 and get to celebrating already!!! (Obviously Star Wars is still something I have a lot of fun with and so happy to have a family that's willing to "celebrate" with me.)
