Jedi Nights

January 15th, 2006

Dear hannihaus readers, it is a momentous day indeed. Angelface is away working all weekend so I’ve chosen to participate in an activity that, along with referring to me as “Queen Mistress Supreme”, is on the list of things my husband refuses to do.

Yes dear hannihaus readers, for the next nine hours I will be transported to a time long ago and a galaxy far, far away.

If you speak Geek you probably know what I’m getting at. For anyone who isn’t, however, a thirty-year-old virgin and/or proud owner of the Obi Wan Kenobi Jedi Braid, what I’m trying to say is that I’m going to watch the Star Wars trilogy (episodes 4-6 for those who are nerdy enough to know the difference interested.)

I’m very serious about all this. I’ve got my DVDs strategically positioned for fast ejection and insertion at the end of each episode, and I’ll only be breaking from this Geekfest for one of two reasons:

  1. To grab a beverage of choice – likely something of the organic licorice tea variety
  2. To periodically yell at the cat, “Sphynx, Sphynx, I am your faaaaaather”.

For those of you who are concerned that the latter item could possibly be detrimental to my male kitten’s understanding of gender development – being that Mommy wants to call herself daddy – don’t sweat it. Sphynxy knows who his real daddy is and, accordingly, how real daddies behave…

Yes, Angel has done a very good job of teaching Sphynxy that it’s Mommy’s job to launder the boxers, and it’s Daddy’s job to wear them whilst playing Xbox and scratching his man bits…

So yeah, to summarize:

  • the Star Wars marathon – it’s on. I’m all giddy, like Mariah Carey at a chocolate crueler convention.
  • The cats –they’re fine. It’s only if I start dressing them like their cousin Spot, (AKA the Jedi Master), that we should be concerned.

Til next, dear hannihaus readers, adieu… And may the force be with you.

12 Haus Calls for “Jedi Nights”

  1. mrtl Says:

    Oh to have nine unadultered hours. I’m so envious. Not of the specific plan, mind you, although I do kind of like the braid, even though it reminds me a little too much of those stupid rat tails that guys and dyky girls grew back in the 80’s.

  2. LizzyBennet Says:

    oh man… I remember when I was dating my ex-boyfriend during my freshman year of college, they re-released all the original Star Wars movies… so of course we went to see them all three, back-to-back. He was such a freak about the Star Wars movies.

    have you seen the Onion article entitled something like, “Man Dumps Star Wars for Lord of the Rings Trilogy”? Comedy gold.

  3. Manuel Says:

    I love Star Wars; I used to make all these little videos in high school, everything from us dressing in cheesy costumes to a best-of clip show as a Blink 182 video.

    Must suck to be a 30 year old virgin, too…

  4. John Boy Says:

    Freaky. I was thinking about doing the same thing this weekend. The force must be strong with you ;)

  5. Dima Says:

    When I read your “May the force be with you!” I naturally ersponded “and also with you!” (That was the result of many years of being rudely woken up to go to a Catholic church.)

    My favorite nerd of the blogosphere, you are!

  6. ZP Says:

    ok dots…when you get through with the nerd-athon (though i heartily approve) you must watch this video…you will enjoy it (wave of hand in jedi-like motion…)

  7. Hänni Says:

    mrtl - Yes, I think we’d all agree, the rat tail was a very unfortunate hair style. Sadly, like mullets and moonshine, the rat tail is still alive and well in some places in the rural south. I’ve seen it on six-year-olds. I’m not kidding.

    Lizzy - I haven’t seen that article. I will have to check that out indef.

    Manuel - You have a star wars costume? Let me guess, you were princess leia.

    John Boy - That is freaky!

    Dima - Ha ha. I have catholic grandparents and I totally got that.

    ZP - Best. Video. Ever.

  8. Gwen Says:

    I’m a fan of the latter three Star Wars too. My roommate however takes it a step farther, he has the darth vader mask and costume complete with light saber.

  9. divinecalm Says:

    So how did your weekend go?

  10. Hänni Says:

    Gwen - holy crap! Don’t let him take you to the dark side Gwen.

    divinecalm - Hi lady! The marathon was absolutely fantastic. And guess what? I’ve still got a whole dvd of bonus footage to watch this week! (As you can tell from today’s post about Mariah Carey/Jabba The Hut, I’ve still got Star Wars on the brain.)

  11. Dima Says:

    Did you totally miss my Yoda talk?

  12. Hänni Says:

    Dima rima - I totally didn’t miss it - forgot to tell you how much like it, I do.
