Happy #GeekPrideDay!

I admit it.

I'm the G-word.

No, not gay.  Or Goofy.  (well, maybe goofy). Or Gargantuan.  What I am, however, is..a GEEK.

And I love it!

Thirty-five years ago today, a movie was released that would change the lives of millions.  Myself included.  Who knew that a farm boy, an old man, an illegal trader, and a princess would leave a legacy that would last decades.  Oh, and don't forget the robots.

Do you remember the first time you watched Star Wars? 

I do.  I was about five years old. My father had brought my sister and I to Washington State, from Tennessee, to visit my grandparents.  He took us to see Star Wars in the old theater that he used to frequent when he was a kid. I don't remember the name, and I'm sure it's gone now.  But I do remember it had balconies.  

I am such a huge Star Wars geek.  Not the new movies -- I'm too much of a purist to like all the fancy graphics and different actors. But I do appreciate them.  Seeing the backstories of the characters I had loved all my life... all of that history finally making sense to me... I do appreciate them.

But say they are my favories??  Well, I'd rather kiss a wookie!

May the force be with you!!
