Unfortunately I arrive late for wishing you a great Star Wars day, which was yesterday.
For those who didn’t know, someone very bored thought of May the 4th as the day all the diehard fans of the Saga should celebrate the Star Wars day.
Cool and stupid at the same time, I reckon I prefer honoring the trilogy rather than AIDS day, Gay Pride, Women’s or St. Valentine’s, it makes more sense to me for sure.
Guess you already know I love Star Wars considering I wanna marry Han Solo, right?
The classic saga has been with me since I was 5, I reckon by this age I started having real conscious memories. A friend of my parents recorded me videotape copies of the classic saga, I kept watching for many many years.
I was lucky my father took me to the cinema to see The Return of the Jedi, when was released, and then he bought me the comic…I learnt all the dialogues by heart, I swear.
The bitter point was that, culture and education in Spain didn’t admit I wanted to have Star Wars toys, because I was a girl. Same friend who recorded the videotapes had a son, and he gave him the Millenium Falcon among others stuff, and he really couldn’t spend as much dough on me, so he brought for my 6th birthday the Space Airgam boys, different but pretty cool as well, which for obvious reasons, became my favorite toys ever, until I was 14, when my mood was more into going out and meeting boys.
As time has passed, I’ve been developing absolute passion for the Sacred Trilogy, and although I’m not into collections, I’ve got plenty of stuff related: several t-shirts, books, figures (Gonzalo, I still keep that storm trooper you gave me few time after we became friends), bags, posters, soap dispenser, mugs…always want more!
There are three targets related I want to accomplish before I die:
- My own Millenium Falcon.
- Marry a guy dressed up in Han Solo’s costumes.
- A real size Carbonite Han Solo standing in my living room.
You wanna help me to be the happiest girl in the galaxy?
