The following link is responsible for this post. Were it not for these awesome cakes I would have sought inspiration elsewhere.
So a small part of me might be a nerdy teenage boy from the 1970’s. Eric Foreman from That 70’s Show comes to mind.
I don’t much care for the prequels. I want to love them as much as the originals, but my heart just isn’t in it. Luke, Leia, Han Solo and the rest of the gang is just so much more interesting to watch then Anakin who we all know grows up to be the evil Darth Vader. Its just hard to root for him when you know he grows up so poorly.
Back before the prequels came out I read an article in Disney Adventures (do they still publish that?) about them and they said that after the prequels they were going to do 3 MORE movies as sequels to the originals. I am still waiting on those, but not holding my breathe because it was YEARS between Return of the Jedi and The Phantom Menace, so even if they do the sequels, its going to be awhile.
Now I am a nerd. Not a full-fledged nerd. I don’t go to conventions, although I plea the fifth on whether that is a choice or a combination of not having money, having no idea where one is, and having no one to go with me. Plus I need a sexy Leia costume, like the one she wore when she was Jabba the Hutt’s slave, which could be hard to find. Actually its not, I just found one in two seconds. And I am just a Star Wars nerd. I don’t really know Star Trek, other then Captain Kirk and Spock from the original. Well and until a friend told me their real names I tended to refer to Whorf as the crumply headed black guy and Data as the really pale one. Thats next generation though. I don’t speak Klingon. I don’t play Dungeons and Dragons. I don’t play video games (watching me play something other than Sims-esque games is kinda like watching a four year old with a horrible potty mouth play). Its just Star Wars.
