Help me, Daddy. You’re my only hope!

25 Jul

This morning while playing a game of “Hut” (don’t ask, all I know is that it has something to do with living inside the jogging stroller and monitoring with the exchange of fair-trade toys) Thomas’ Light Saber broke.

According to him it “stopped clicking.”  He asked me to look at it, but I just don’t understand this early Rebellion Era technology.  Maybe it’s actually the 1970’s technology that’s standing in my way.  In any case, I sent him to the expert.  Jerry.

And in an what can only be called the Ultimate Acheivement of Geeky Mandom this was the result:

Duct Tape meet Star Wars.  Star Wars, Duct Tape.  All parties seem pleased with the new arrangement.  The force was certainly strong enough with the magic fix-all to overcome the weapon’s malfunctions.  I think there is a bright future for these two.  Live long and . . . wait, that’s not right.

Too bad it was the blue one.  It could have been Red, Green . . .

May the Fourth Be With You

4 May

Check your calendars.  Don your Jedi cloaks.  Light Sabers to the ready.  This is a day to celebrate.

The Padawans began their training by proving  patience and endurance in a nearly two hour trip to the craft stores.  Their efforts were rewarded with new Star Wars Coloring Books.

At the craft stores we purchased a pelt of Wookie Fur.  They argued the available fur more closely resembled that of the Ewoks.  Neither species was harmed in the pelt acquisition.

The young Jedi Apprentices then abandoned their Master in the making of the Bean Bag Chewbaccas . . .

but showed up in time to cuddle the finished Wookie . . .

who taught them how to make Cookies.

Since the force was so strong with us we decided to share it with our friends in the Rebel Alliance.

We hope the Wookie Cookies weren’t Chewie.
