Star Wars Day is today!
"May the 4th Be With You"
Why I LOVE Star Wars:
*Born in 1978, I'm a total Star Wars child. My mom actually went to watch the first Star Wars movie with me in the womb. (1977)
*I grew up replaying the old movies on VHS tapes so many times, the quality of picture grew grainy. I can recite every word of the first three movies when I watch them and even act it out! (which drives my DH crazy).
*My first dog was named "Obie" after you know who! Now my dogs are named "Jedi" and Leia"
*My favorite vacation day EVER was when we got to see the actual costumes, Luke's speeder, lightsabers, Yoda, and the models at the Boston Museum of Science. There's one picture where it actually looks like Yoda is talking with me. I *heart* that picture. If I had a scanner, it would be up here on the blog right now.
*Star Wars gave me something to dream about. It provided the spark for my Space Opera writing.
*The music in Star Wars was one of the reasons why I chose to be a musician. I can still remember the first time I learned the theme song on my flute.
What are your memories of Star Wars? How has it changed your life?
