Today's Wonder of the World is...Embracing Your Inner Geek and Celebrating Star Wars!
As you can see, we've been letting our geekyness go wild for years.
So naturally when we brought Sam's cousin home from Kentucky for a week-long sleepover, we got out the popcorn and planned a Star Wars Marathon!
Perfect for these silly knuckleheads,
especially for cousin Luke. (His mother's name is Leah, after all!)
Everything was proceeding as I had foreseen. Until my VCR wouldn't work.
Boo hoo. My tech guy was off gallivanting in Montana, pretending to be Meriwether Lewis with his middle child Clark.
No problem! The cousins found this.
Have you seen it? I'm still speechless.
Then they moved on to this and this, and this, laughing themselves silly, until they got hungry and tried to trick me into giving them seconds on the chocolate pie.
Ha! Your Jedi mind tricks don't work on me, boys!
All this Star Wars talk reminded me of Star Wars, The Legacy Revealed, a documentary I saw a couple years ago on the History Channel which explored the history and mythology that inspired the movie. Have you seen it? Meriwether Lewis made me watch the beginning, and you know what happened when he left the room? I didn't even turn the channel to HGTV! Who could resist a nerdy documentary about a geeky movie? Especially one featuring interviews with folks from Stephen Colbert and Dan Rather to Newt Gingrich and Nancy Pelosi! Talk about a diverse crowd. Perhaps we need more Star Wars showings to bring this country together. What do you think? Shall we all link arms and try to become one with the Force?
Sorry. I'm getting a little carried away.
Thankfully, the boys did not. They stepped away from the computer and found some adventures of their own.
Have a wonder-full weekend, y'all, full of your own adventures!
PS. But first watch this!
