The Tale of a Dreamer
Was Yoda ‘Stoned’ when we first see him in The Empire Strikes Back?

Yoda was incredibly smart. At the end of the Clone Wars he was the Master of the Order until Order 66, which in order to survive, he went into exile on Dagobah. An exile on a planet that he chose specifically, where he lived near a cave strong with the dark side of the Force which balanced out his light side and kept him from detection. Just listen to his teachings.

Yoda knows that Luke is coming to visit him, he can sense it or Obi-Wan communicates this with him (maybe this is told in EU, I am unsure as I haven’t read much on Yoda - I should though, I love him as a character.). So when he ‘happens’ upon his camp, is he Stoned? It is known that there are plenty of ‘mind altering substances’ in the universe, it is told in various novels - and I mean come on, so does one assume that he has taken some? Think about how he acts upon meeting Luke and reuniting with R2-D2. He starts going through his personal items - finding a flashlight which he is absolutely infatuated with; he finds food and immediately starts eating; when he is both scolded and finds out the food is disgusting, offers to make more BEFORE he takes him to meet Yoda; he also is very jovial and laughs a lot - all traits of someone who is under the influence.

So it makes you wonder, was Master Yoda stoned when Luke showed up? I’d like to think so.

Happy Earth Day everyone!

Remember to go hug a tree, or kiss a flower if that’s more your speed, and thank it for existing, because without it and it’s oxygen producing properties - you’d be dead. If you don’t want to hug a tree, go plant one instead; there are far too many being chopped down these days.

Of course Nathan would be the kid who gets in trouble for swinging his bat like a lightsabre at practice.

I got #fresh and decided to customize our mini #airhockey table. It’s a surprisingly decent game despite being a #dollarstore find.

Life lately has been super stressful.

All I want to do is get a pizza, get faded, make out with someone, maybe play some Xbox, build a pillow fort, and play with some nerf guns… You know relaxing, fun stuff. Is that so much to ask? Does anyone want to make a road trip to the middle of PA and hang out?

No?

Okay… I’ll just be over here with my pizza then… alone.

You know it’s going to be an interesting day when you wake up and your first thought is ‘fuck-fuck-fuck-fuck, I forgot to set an alarm, fuck me’ but it turns out you woke up almost an hour before you would have set an alarm… Maybe I should pay the lottery or figure out a way to thank by subconscious for waking me up so I wasn’t late. Either way I’d rather take waking up early rather than waking up late.

Tonight, TinyTot and I decided to have a battle with our plastic army men and nerf guns.

As a ‘hands-on’ type of learner, I feel like I miss out on so many features because I failed to read the instructions before diving in. I am constantly finding keyboard shortcuts, features, and things that I didn’t know most things could do; things that I would have known if I had just read the instruction book. I am so glad most things come with ‘quick start’ instructions these days. It makes one wonder, how much of the lack of knowledge is due to impatience or the eagerness to figure it out on your own without help. Definitely is one of the drawbacks about being a more hands on learner, especially when it comes to electronic devices and their software.

I just overheard someone in the office complain that their weekend was ‘too long’, with another person seconding it… What?!

Don’t get me wrong, I love my job - - but come on. For efficiency and productivity, I think the work week should be 6 hour days, with Friday’s off. It baffles me that someone can think the weekend is ‘TOO LONG’. Hell that person had a 3 day weekend. I still am in disbelief…

Just came inside from an excellent evening playing outside in the backyard with the TinyTot. We started playing catch and he decided he wanted to switch to Zombie hunting with our Nerf guns. I haven’t participated in that kind of imaginative play in a long time, it was nice. We used some of his character pillows from his room and he placed them around the yard. We then snuck around the house and acted like we were just coming upon them. It was really fun. He had a blast and was saddened when it got too dark to play.

I wonder where I could find department store mannequins for cheap, those would be fun to use for Nerf Gun play…

I’m here…

My posts, just like my free time, have been scarce lately. Days and weeks all have been blending together due to the hectic nature of my journeys lately. It seems as though more and more I am falling asleep on the couch at 9-10pm every night out of sheer exhaustion. I am mentally drained. Work has been incredibly busy and my homelife is no different. I feel like I haven’t had a free moment to myself in weeks, which isn’t helping to better my mood or mental health. My attitude is sour, which makes me unpleasant to be around. I am not a joyous person anymore it seems. I’m struggling. If you know anything about how an introvert works, you’ll understand how much hell I am in right now… I’m so tired and exhausted I can’t put together a complete thought anymore… I need a break…

I”m still here… if anyone cares…

'It's my money and I can do what I want with it.'

Quite honestly, I never thought I would hear those exact words from a six year old. It all began this morning when I was rushing out the door. Nathan needed money for his lunch account at school and I had forgotten to stop at the bank. As I was rushing around trying to help Nathan ready himself for the day, I sent the most garbled speech-to-text message to Ms.Katie attempting to inform her that Nathan needed money. Despite knowing I should have proof read it, as speech text is about as spot on as autocorrect, the message was sent and I was off to work.

You know you had a good weekend when the hangover doesn’t come until Monday morning.

Okay so it isn’t a hangover that much in the sense of nausea and calling off booze forever, it is the aches, the crankiness, the tiredness… But unlike most hungover people, I have a cheery outlook and am still reeling off the good vibes from the weekend.
