His name is WHAT?!

As many of you know, I am kind of a walking Star Wars Encyclopedia. When I got into the Star Wars movies, I really got into the Star Wars universe. Memorized timelines, adjusted timelines when things just didn’t make sense… and for about a decade ran a Star Wars RPG (using West End’s d6 system)

JJ, Where Are The Women?

As you’ve probably heard, Star Wars: Episode VII is starting to film, and the main cast list has been announced. And in that list, there’s only one new woman (the other is Carrie Fisher). What gives? Sure, there weren’t a lot of women in the Original Trilogy – the only main female character was Leia.

It’s my birthday, I’ll wear a wampa if I want to.

Sorry about missing a post on Friday (I try to post M-W-F, and if I have more to say, post those on Tuesday or Thursday). Last week was a busy week, with my MIL’s mother’s wake and funeral. So many many things to do, so many places to go- things were a little topsy turvy.

Kidlets, Droids & Star Wars, blurring the lines.

A lot has gone on since vacation, and it seems wrong at the moment to blog the silliness. TheBoy’s maternal grandmother is in the hospital. Her health has been declining over the last year- and in the last few months especially. And it’s terminal. She has congestive heart failure and her kidneys have failed. They’re

Drizzle, LEGO and Star Wars.

It’s a rainy day here in SoCal. Which means that it isn’t actually raining. It’s been drizzling most of the day, heavily enough to ensure that the roads (and my windshield) stay wet, but not enough that you need an umbrella. Which is why I was surprised when on the way home I saw a

Happy 4th!

It’s the Fourth of July! Hopefully everyone has a safe day. With all the drier than usual conditions- please be careful. (In fact, a number of states have firework bans because of the heat and dryness) We’re watching the Clone Wars marathon on Cartoon Network right now. My youngest is wearing his Clone Trooper helmet

Giving people credit. It’s Important.

Those in the Star Wars community probably know that Bonnie Burton (the woman behind the Star Wars social media & blog, as well as author of a wildly popular Star Wars craft book) was fired. The social feeds have continued, but it’s obvious that the heart is gone from them. It used to feel like

Yes, Star Wars.

I went to drop off the Little Kidlet at school yesterday, and made the mistake of taking the route near the freeway. The freeway was backed up, and so were the side streets. So I turned around and went my other route- driving over a hill back into our neighborhood. But I was starving by

Introducing Star Wars to the Kidlets

Oh dear. Everything seems to be happening on St Patrick’s Day. I’ll be at Wondercon that day, and already I’ve been invited to a baby shower and a birthday party. Not to mention that I’m missing Sportive Tricks in Long Beach. (Go, Southern California people, go!) But I’m going to Wondercon. I’m going to make
