May the 4th be with you

May the 4th be with you

Happy Star Wars Day, all you Jedi Masters and Sith Lords out there.

I must confess, much like last year the day sneaked up on me again. But that doesn’t mean I’m leaving you empty-handed. Thanks to the wonder that is the interwebs, I give you Origami Yoda, the newest member of my writing cheerleading squad with his well-known maxim:

Origami Yoda on a Writer's Block
Write. Or write not. There is no try.

If you want to take a shot at folding one yourself, here’s a video, but be warned, it will confound you and try you and leave you bleeding from a thousand-and-one paper cuts.

In honour of Star Trek and Star Wars fans bashing on each other (personally I stay out of that fight – like Harry Dresden’s apprentice, Molly, I believe it’s okay to like both), here’s a video on how Star Trek (the reboot) should have ended. The really good bit is at two minutes, thirty seconds.

Enjoy your Star Wars Day, whichever side of the force you serve.

And live long and prosper 😛

May The Force be with you

The interwebs inform me that today is International Star Wars Day.

Normally, I’d make something of a day like this (if you don’t believe me, just check out my post on last year’s International Talk Like A Pirate Day), but I spent all of today driving and frankly, my brain is mush.  So, I’ll make a big thing of the day next year.

But for now, don’t give in to the dark side, join me in pondering what to get a wookie for Christmas if he already owns a comb, when going through automatic doors, pretend you’re using the force to open them (unless you can actually, you know, use the force), and don’t you dare leave any snide comments about ewoks – they rock!

Go check out the wife’s cool pic of Yoda, enjoy The PianoGuys’s own take on lightsaber duels, and…

I just had to share this as well.  I somehow keep managing to pick my favourite characters with these things.  Click the image to take the quiz yourself.
