Happy Star Wars day (Star Wars and Return of the Jedi’s Anniversary), Towel Day, and Geek Pride day.
Most importantly though, Return of the Jedi turns 30 today. Marking the end of Star Wars releases in theaters (not re-runs) for 16 years. The next film to be released was The Phantom Menace, which was loved by some but most hated it (or at least parts of it).

really? you’re asking parents to help you ban superheroes, wrestling and monster games because their imaginations are too wild? because they might get hurt? ugh.
this overmothering bullshit needs to fucking stop. everything is becoming “dangerous” to these pro pussification cocksuckers. eventually kids won’t be able to watch, say, or do anything other than sit at their desks and drug drool. and that’s what these people want. they’re not looking out for their students best interests. they’re looking out for themselves. they don’t want to actually watch the kids and teach them anything. they don’t want kids to be kids. kids get hurt. that’s what they do and it’s how they learn not to do stupid shit. don’t kill their fun and stunt their imaginations because you’re fucking lazy. if you get into childcare you need to be prepared to deal with this kinda stuff. not take everything away from them to shut them up and make your day easier.
shit like this fucking enrages me. there should be a committee that’s sole purpose is to find schools like this and shut them down until all of these scaredy cat overmothering lazy fuckfaces are removed and banned from any aspect of teaching or administration.
the days of becoming a teacher because it’s a passion are long gone. now it’s just a job. it’s about numbers and keeping lawsuits away.
just fucking let kids be kids, man.
I rarely reblog stuff, because it’s not my style, but I whole heartedly agree with Fred here…
It is this type of bullshit that has to stop.
My son currently attends one of the best childcare centers in the state of PA and never once did they tell me to stop letting him watch Star Wars or ‘super hero stuff’. Never once did I get a letter from them stating that he wasn’t to wear his home-made super hero cape in at school and act like a super hero because he had an ‘overactive imagination’. Routinely will I pick him up to find him climbing on things, standing on top of things, etc… I see him playing around with his friends, acting out various movies, etc… and never once have I been told that my parenting has to be changed because of his ‘overactive imagination’.
What I get from this is ‘Oh these kids are being too rough with one another, lets ban all play that will potentially put them in danger if they do it, oh and lets wrap the kids in bubble wrap as well and ensure they don’t fall down and get boo-boos’… Honestly!?
Let the kids be kids. Let them play. Let them imagine… This kind of stuff irritates me to no end.
Tried to play Uno with TinyTot, however I turned on BBC America for background noise and Doctor Who was on… Yeah… no Uno tonight. We tried to play two games but he was too engrossed in the program.
My little Whovian.
RTotM: Hot, Hot Lava
Currently, according to NOAA, it is 82* out with a heat index of 84* (28 C for those of you north of the border). I have fans in a few of the windows but it doesn’t seem to be helping much. It’s only May and it is this hot, Summer will be hell…
I forget how clumsy I am until I miss a step walking inside and fall down. I was carrying a laundry basket and trying to balance the iPad on top at the same time. I scraped up my wrist pretty badly on the cement. It stings. I have come to realize that my skin scrapes easily. It doesn’t take much.
Finally caught up on the rest of season 7 of Doctor Who… So many mixed emotions, so many questions, so many likes and dislikes… Can we just fast forward to November? No? damn…
Apple Cinnamon Maple Bacon Waffles
yes you read that right, those aren’t separate things… They taste amazing.
I heard him turn on Toy Story 2. When I came back into the living room, 5 minutes later, he was asleep. I don’t know if he had a nap but the hour and half at the park really took it out of him.
At the Park, TinyTot wanted to practice batting again. He had a few nice shots directly back at me and scattered a few to both left and right. He still needs some work but it makes me proud to see him hit like he does.
My baseball baby.
Darth Vader Pipe
After it was mentioned to me earlier today that there was a Darth Vader Pipe, I decided to look for one online… I found two different ones… along with R2-D2 and Chewbacca… If I didn’t have bills that needed paid tomorrow…
Earlier today my boss pulled me aside to talk to me. He was as excited as a
kid on Christmas. He then told me how he was at the local shop and how he found a Darth Vader pipe. He then tried to explain to me how he also found a Luke Skywalker Pipe that featured Luke during his training on Dagobah with Yoda on his back. I was as excited as could be. I immediately told him the next time he went to purchase them for me, to which he replied he had to run errands this morning and would be out that way and said he would. When he returned and presented me with this new beauty.
The excitement we shared was great. He got disappointed and said that Vader had been sold but he would continue to look for it when he makes his return visits. I asked him how much to which he replied ‘Happy Birthday’.
Checked in on TinyTot, gave him a kiss and a hug, and told him I loved him… his response ‘I know.’
I don’t know whether to be proud or to start sewing a tiny Han Solo costume for him… Both?
The above is an excerpt from an email my boss sent the entire office, which pertained to the Powerball drawing. That little bit was put in the email just for me… Definitely amusing and made my day a bit brighter.
