As a proper Star Wars geek, I knew I needed to cover the amazing space epic fandom for the letter ‘S’ of the A to Z Blogging Challenge.
The Good: What ISN’T good about Star Wars? Not only did the original trilogy create much of the technological advances needed to make special effects in movies, but the storyline and world are so imaginative…so awesome. But, you probably know this. You also probably know that a new movie is coming out this December. At first I was a little wary of a new Star Wars film, but I am quickly warming up to the idea. Especially after seeing the new trailer. OMG. I’m ready.
The Bad: It surprises me less and less each time, but I still run into people (almost weekly) who haven’t seen Star Wars. I used to get mildly offended, but now I just change the subject. I am sure these sad sad individuals get harassed on a daily basis about their lack of culture and I don’t want to add to their embarrassment. Still…so sad.
The Katy: A little bit about my love for Star Wars. It all started in 1st grade when I had a crush on a boy who loved Star Wars. In my first grade brain: “OH, if I like what he likes, he’ll like me!!!” That relationship never happened, but my love for Star Wars never died. And then I met my husband in college…his name is LUKE WALKER. It was meant to be, people!
My favorite character is Boba Fett. He is a bad ass bounty hunter who doesn’t need words to intimidate people. Mmmhmm. I have one Boba Fett tattoo already and am planning on another one soon. He is a great character. Sort of a Clint Eastwood type….in space.
I could go on and on about Star Wars, but I won’t. I will say that I am SUPER excited for Christmastime.
