Overheard while watching "Star Wars"

  • At the very beginning of the movie, when Princess Leia's ship is being overtaken by Darth Vader's Star Destroyer outside the orbit of Tattoine: "The ships DO look like Legos!"
  • While looking at the DVD box, she points at the picture of the Death Star. "What's that?" she says. It's the Death Star. "Is there a Life Star?"
  • When Jabba the Hut first appears. (Remember that when Lucas reedited "Star Wars" in the late 1990s, he added a cut scene where Han talks to Jabba before Luke and Ben arrive to escape Tattoine. Sarah sees Jabba and says, "Is his name Java?"

She might have said more, but I got really sleepy and took a nap about the time that Ben was shutting down tractor beam. To make up for it, here are two weird Star Wars-themed websites.

1. Flickr photo page for Red and Jonny.

2. A Star Wars guide to the presidential candidates.

Nice archetypes, especially the ideologically pure Obi-Ron and Mitt Skywalker. Alas the one character best qualified for office would never run.
