I saw a girl wearing the best T-shirt today...It will be mine....
Oh yeah! The Empire Strikes Back. I'd probably rather have a "Star Wars - A New Hope" T-shirt because otherwise people might think I'm evil.
Speaking of evil empires...now I'm going all Empire Strikes Back mad on Ebay.
Stormtrooper Figurine. I had heaps of these. Don't know what happened to them. I know that I lost one or two on a beach in Santa Monica when Mum took me and my brother on holiday. It was probably my fault because I was playing at burying them in the sand and pretending the beach was the ice planet Hoth. I had the supreme confidence that I would remember where I buried them but it turned out that all of the beach looked the same and Han Solo in antarctic gear and Luke Skywalker with his lightsaber were gone forever.
Comics. What more need I say? Brilliant. Oh, dang, I said something.
I love these 'books of the movie' type things. At the moment there aren't enough of these around. Maybe they will make a comeback. When the "Return of the Jedi" books and tape sets came out, I listened to them so many times I can recite the bulk of the entire movie. Oh my God. I just wrote that down. I am such a geek. I might as well accept that and be comfortable with it.
(say the first line while holding your nose)
DEATH STAR CONTROLLER: "The security deflector shield will be deactivated when we have confirmation of your code transmission. Stand by... You are clear to proceed."
SHUTTLE CAPTAIN: "We're starting our approach."
OFFICER: "Inform the commander that Lord Vader's shuttle has arrived"
OPERATOR: "Yes sir"
MOFF JERJERROD: "Lord Vader, this is an unexpected pleasure, we are honoured by your presence..."
VADER: "You may dispense with the pleasantries, Commander, I'm here to put you back on schedule..."
That's it. I'm getting a trenchcoat and growing a beard. Hang on, I'm not a guy. Um....
20GB hard drive? 1GB ram? Maybe I'm already on my way to using my powers. I must.... complete.... my training......
