The force is strong in that one

I promised Mr. B if he was really good all weekend while Momma Bird and Sister Bird were in town, I would surprise him with a special treat. And he worked for it, flying Momma Bird out here, cooking breakfast for the girls and making it through the entire C&B registry process all with general pleasantness and good cheer. 

So, all day on Sunday, I indulged Mr. B's inner Fan Boy. We started out by watching one of the Star Wars movies, and then I took him to see the new movie of the same name at our local vintage theater [literally the building next door]. 

This complimented our recent viewing of Trekkies, the RIDICULOUS documentary about Star Trek fans. Though I couldn't stop wondering if this was just a really well done Christopher Guest movie . . . scary.

I have to admit, Fanboys was pretty hilarious. And for someone who's retention level of the famed trilogy is right around this level, that's quite the endorsement.

It was certainly worth it to wade through the corny 'force-be-with-you' jokes and way-over-my-head references just to see the incredible sparkle in Mr. B's eyes. And to do the opposite of wedding planning, for real.

  1. The retelling of Star Wars is hilarious ... and impressively close to the truth!
