So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Because I'm That Big of a Dork

Saturday, ok looking at the clock, today ... will be busy, but fun. Hot Rod has a baseball game at 1 p.m. then I'm taking Pickle and one of his friends to the Star Wars Dorkfest. I pulled out my one and only Star Wars shirt with a blue light saber and the caption "It's not the Jedi way" on it. So, I thought I had better brush up on my Star Wars quotes before heading out to dorkfest wearing that shirt. I remember Anakin saying it, but I couldn't remember which movie. Turns out it was Episode III. It was my second least favorite of the new movies. I wasn't really a fan of any of them. Give me the originals from my childhood any day. I am in the minority of most folks, but of the new three movies, I liked Episode I the most, III the second and II the least of them all. Episode II made me want to take a fondue stick and gouge out my eyes and ears.

But, I digress.

We're off to get Kenny Baker's autograph (R2D2). We don't have his yet. We have Darth Vader, the original Boba Fett, Chewbacca, young Anakin, Darth Maul and maybe another one or two, I can't remember. I have several Star Trek autographs and Serenity, too. Star Wars is more Pickle's gig.

Anyway. After Dorkfest, we are going to the FC Dallas game. Hot Rod's soccer team will get to have a practice on the big field at Pizza Hut Park before the game and then be on the field when the teams come out. Too cool. Should be fun.

Sunday, we are going to the Vikings-Cowboys game. A fun-filled weekend. I'm missing my baby girl, though. She went to spend the weekend with her Granny and Papa. The three of them were ecstatic. Me? I'm missing my buddy. She and I are like peas and carrots. I may be lost when she starts kindergarten next year. The house is REALLY quiet without her.
