  1. My favorite thing in Star Wars is without a doubt...

    Vader-breaths. ;-)

  2. Funny, Misha! Thanks for commenting.


  3. My favorite thing would have to be the music. My hubby is a classically trained French horn player, so naturally we were wowed by that music. I'm dating myself, but we went to see the original movie 9 times, 8 of them just to hear the music. We completely wore out one record and had to buy a 2nd. Then we got a tape for each car. I wore mine out and had to steal my hubby's. And now, yes, we have the CDs! My 2nd favorite thing is R2D2! It's just amazing to me how expressive beeps and whistles can be!

  4. My favorite character is Yoda.Zachary made me one out of clay that I have in my office. We read all the books together and created a real bond with Star Wars.
    Thanks for bringing this back.


I only ask that all comments be polite and constructive.
