Just kidding; my dad doesn’t even give a crap about Star Wars.
BUT I DO.
Guys. Oh my God. Oh. My. FREAKING. GOODNESS. Guys, Star Wars The Force Awakens is only TWO SLEEPS AWAY!!! At least for me, my tickets are for Thursday night. And yes, I stole that from The Muppet Christmas Carol, because this year I’m more excited about the new Star Wars than Christmas, or anything else for that matter. I’m having a beautiful flashback to when I was little and my aunt Adelaida was describing the cover of the original Star Wars VHS tape, which was all black with Vader’s shiny helmet, before it was dubbed A New Hope, over the phone to me. I had no idea what it was but I was incredibly excited for it because of the enthusiasm in my aunt’s voice, and thankfully I was not disappointed. I was in love. I thought Mark Hamill was just the cutest young man ever, that Luke Skywalker was both adorable and badass. I had an ornament of him but my parents haven’t been using our eclectic collection of family ornaments the last few years so I haven’t seen him in a while. However, I’m somewhat making up for it; this year, my parents let me decorate our new mini Christmas tree in all Star Wars ornaments!! Just for this year. But still, I’m so happy about it, looking at it just makes me beam. I would have gotten Luke out for it but he is trapped in storage…but in my heart he is there.
LOOK AT IT, IN ALL OF ITS’ STAR WARS MANIA GLORY:
The round ones I don’t have close-ups of here are from a Force Awakens themed set. Perhaps I’ll post more close-ups in the days to come…
