my first star wars experience

this may get me in trouble with some star wars fanatics, but i really didn’t think episode III was all that it was hyped up to be. i did like seeing how anakin became darth vader, and the fighting scenes were pretty cool, but towards the end i thought it got slow. there were several places it could have ended — such as with darth vader and his master staring out of their base — but it just kept going. maybe it’s just that this isn’t the type of movie i normally watch. *shrug*

it was fun, though, watching the people who came out for the sneak preview last night. most people were dressed in robes, but one came into the theater dressed either as chewy or an ewok…we couldn’t decide which. then, two boys got into a light saber fight in the front of the theater. the three guy sitting behind us (who hummed the star wars theme whenever someone in costume walked in) egged them on by shouting, “go for the knees! go for the knees!” the fight happened when joe and phillip were out buying food. they didn’t seem to think they had missed anything. hehe.


julius left last night on one of his excursions. at my last house he’d be gone for up to three days at a time, so i’m not too worried about him right now. aj, on the other hand, is flipping out. he’s been pacing (yes, the cat was actually pacing) and running to the door like he wants to go look for him. then he’ll curl up on the chenile pillow they love and look at me with such sad eyes. poor guy. hopefully julius will be back soon. i don’t think aj will be able to handle his absence much longer!

stop taking pictures!

this site is hilarious. check it out. the baby picture is my favorite. it’s awesome. i tried this with aj. he woke up. then as i started putting more stuff on him he freaked out. poor little fuzz butt

well i’ve been back for almost an hour. turns out my meeting isn’t until tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. for some reason i was thinking yesterday was the 17th. sigh. i think it’s time for a nap now…
