May the Fourth be with you! In honor of Star Wars Day, I’ve decided to take a break from the hamster wheel and geek it up with S and the kids. Tonight, we’ll set up a screening of the first Star Wars released (Star Wars episode IV) in our family room and glory in the earnestness of Mark Hamill, the sassiness of Carrie Fisher, and the cockiness of Harrison Ford. I’m sure there will be the reciting of the lines in unison with the movie to prove our nerdy dedication to the films.
I’m going to make pizza, popcorn, and probably that kiddie sangria that Micha posted about. And real sangria for the adults. We’ll munch out, dodge the kids’ light sabers and Nerf guns, and turn up the volume on the movie until the end tables vibrate.
I might also break out this:
I can’t wait.
I think this year, we’ll try to come up with our own Jedi names. Mine would be Joan Vandriver.
What would your Jedi name be? Are you (or your family) a Star Wars fan and which is your favorite movie?
