My thoughts exactly Payne.

Initially, I thought this post was just going to be a link to the Cafe. :-B

One of the funnier things I've seen.

Going over to a friend's apartment across the street from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
At the time they are showing The Art of Star Wars (the show with all the models, costumes, and artwork from the Star Wars films).
I didn't know this show was going on.
I do a masterful parallel parking job and jump out of my truck and lock the door.
I look up, and a quite physically unspectacular Princess Leia is crossing the street towards the Art Institute directly in front of my truck.

(WTF?!? Jeezus, she is not pretty, at all. Still... must watch.)

Now what do my eyes percieve... frickin' Yoda, and he's hanging out with Chewbacca... and they're outside the entrance smoking cigarettes.
Now these two looked very authentic, obviously very expensive and thoroughly researched costumes. But they're hanging by a doorway smoking heaters on a very icy Minnesota morning like some sad, nicotine-addicted office drones.

(WTF?!? This is surreal.)

I continue to watch.
The ugly Princess approaches Chewy and The Master.
Pleasantries of some sort are exchanged (I'm too far away to hear). It seems they're admiring each others costumes, and perhaps commenting on their unparalled level of dedication.
I may be wrong, but the body language seemed to indicate to me that these two interstellar beings were flirting with the Ugly Princess.
Chewy offers a smoke from his belt.
(Oh, Joy! she has deemed us worthy and accepted.)
Chewy lights her smoke (ahh, the agressive rascal).
Not wanting to leave the exalted presence of the Ugly Princess, The Master and The Monster snuff out their spent star-sticks and proceed to light a couple more.

(WTF?!? Is this for real?)

I turn away and proceed to my friend's apartment, where he explains to me about the Star Wars show at the Institute, and how he's been enjoying the freak-show all week.

Geeeeeeeeeeeks.

Gotta say, though, for all of his bad judgement, the guy can put a place together. Maybe he could get a job with the screw of Monster House or something (if that show's still on the air).

I heard about this guy last week on the radio. The funniest part is that his wife hung in there with him until he we getting ready to switch out the fridge.....that's what broke the camel's back. :-?

I have over 200 Star Wars figures in my office. I have about a dozen ships. I have about two dozen Star Wars Lego models on my shelves.

You're welcome to call me a geek (or call me a geek again), but when I sell this collection this geek will be taking a cruise around the Greek (not Geek) Isles with the proceeds. I've already had offers.

Just so you know where I'm coming from.

no one ever said geeks weren't smart... :-b

Nah... actually, over all the Star Wars talk, I've had a huge urge to watch the Trilogy again...
