Revenge of the Sith, Indeed


If you recently felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if one voice suddenly cried out in terror, and was suddenly silenced, that was me. The day I knew would come, and dreaded, has arrived. The COA asked us to rent Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, which I did. When I brought it home she took it, put it on in her room, and ten minutes later turned it off and decided to do something else. My hopes rose. But, alas, like the inevitable turning of Annakin to the Dark Side, she eventually put the movie back on, and loved it.

And there was NO rejoicing. At least now, unlike when she asked to see The Phantom Menace, she's old enough to watch these flicks on her own, so I didn't have to endure "Kiss me like you did by the lake on Naboo" again. Revenge of the Sith, however, I think might be a bit too intense at the end to leave her on her own, so I'll have to watch that one with her. Which might be ok. I haven't watched it since the first time with Duke and the gang in NYC, and I do think it was the most tolerable of the three, so it might not be too painful...right?

If any of you reading this are in the path of Gustav, I hope you have taken the proper precautions and are safe and dry. Let's all hope it peters out a bit before reaching the coast.

I sat through the revenge of the sith (the only star wars film i have seen and will ever see) and managed to pick up the jist of all the other films. Marvellous!

Well, Pigeon Dearest, though this may fall on deaf ears, I would still recommend that you watch the original Star Wars. It is a classic that holds up even after 30 years.

Gustav is probably going to hit us pretty hard. I have a lot of fraternity brothers from the Houma and New Orleans area. They are all preparing for the worst. It's not supposed to hit us up here in Ruston until Monday or Tuesday sometime.
