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.
This pretty much sums up how he was tonight… an eating machine, super excited, and a being who would not sit still…
Tonight we are going to Scranton to see the Braves AAA Team play, a Mother’s Day present for Ms.Katie. It’ll be a nice treat, but my question is…
Why is it that any time we try to take TinyTot to a baseball game it is chilly out? Today it is currently in the upper 40s with a high today of 50, despite the fact that it has been gorgeous out lately and warm. All the other 3 times we have taken him to Braves games, it has been cold. The other three games, despite the fact that the locations (Washington DC, Lake Buena Vista, and Pittsburgh) had decent weather leading up to the game, have been chilly.
I guess I can understand.
Two were in March (one early in March, one at the end) and one was in October. After all of the warm weather we’ve been having recently at home here… it’s frustrating. In May I’d hope that the weather would be good. Oh well, Hopefully we can get to a ballgame soon where we don’t have to wear sweatshirts and layers under our jerseys.
- I have had a wicked migraine for most of the night. I have a high tolerance for pain so it didn’t bother me too much… it stil lwas annoying.
- my phone just started vibrating because of the timer I set for my tatertots… I got excited because I thought someone was calling me…
- Seeing the half finished bottle of Three Olives Dude (Mountain Dew Flavored Vodka) on the counter, I decided to finish it off. I picked up some Mountain Dew Amp (cherry flavored) and combined the two to drink tonight. I have a decent buzz. It’s helping with the migraine at least.
- The steak I just pan seared is super tasty. I love steak. It doesn’t have to be fancy either. Just throw a bit of Garlic Salt and pepper on it, you’re good.
- I have been listening to a bunch of classic rock on Pandora today… Journey, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, CCR, Pink Floyd, Boston, Queen, The Who, Tom Petty, Guns and Roses, Motley Crue… a bunch of good stuff. I don’t listen to music enough at home. I do listen to it in the car and all day at work but not nearly enough at home. TinyTot was likin’ some of the jams today, which makes me smile.
- I just saw that Warwick Davis was on tonight’s episode of Doctor Who. My favorite ewok is on Doctor Who… That’s awesome… I’m going to have to get caught up as soon as I can.
- I love my rum, but I must say… I kind of miss Vodka. I may buy a bottle or two next week when I get paid. I used to drink it all the time, making crazy concotions with it, combining it with other things to make new mixed drinks.
- I have a decent buzz… tonight should be good…
You wouldn’t like TinySuperHulk when he’s angry…
(you can’t tell but he is making the Hulk’s face under the mask. He told me to hurry up when taking the picture because he couldn’t make the face for much longer)
I did some sketching earlier. Overall, I am pleased with it.
I may change a few things when I make it into a vector. The serifs on the letters need tightened up a bit, the sizing of the letters too. Also I’m not fully satisfied with the shaded part either, although that could turn out nicer in the vector version.
Looking through old photos on my computer, I totally forgot to post this one of TinyTot from last month… I love his face in this one.
So I had a really weird dream last night, well this morning during the 45 minutes of sleep between TinyTot moving to our bed at 6-something and my alarm at 7:25… It was about zombies, but the only zombies were children. So it was a weird zombie outbreak that only affected prepubescent adolescents. The zombies could still kill everyone and anyone but only the children became zombies afterward. It was actually really sad because we found out that, despite their blood lust and craving to devour things, they really were just misguided children who needed love and affection. One of the ‘survivors’ came in contact with two little girls, who reminded her of her own (whom she had lost), and she took them into our shelter and cared for them. She led them to a separate area to put them out of their misery but found out that when you showed them a bit of kindness, as with a real child, they became almost docile and tame. In the dream, I looked into their eyes… the irises were a weird blood red/brown on one zombie child and the other had golden yellow irises, both had very, very sad eyes but still had the dead look in them and still wanted to kill… it was an interesting dream. It was also set during the early evening, during winter. It was a neat setting… I wish we had the tech to have our dreams recorded as movies. Honestly some of the locations and stuff that my brain comes up with…
Anyways, back to the dream… I think it says something about some unanswered feelings toward children that I may want to have addressed…
Today I discovered Honey Maid ‘lil’ squares’… my life will never be the same. I mean they are fucking one inch by one inch squares of fucking graham cracker… fucking tiny finger food sized graham crackers… fuck yesssssssss
ALL THE THINGS.
Things we did today…
Bought Star Wars Toys, attended Star Wars Mini-Event at Toys R Gus and got stuff, ate a Star Wars themed meal, had some early evening Jedi Training, and finished it off with the movie that started it all…
If you’re trying to figure out how that is a Star Wars themed meal, Han Burgers (from the Star Wars cookbook), Vader Tots (based off of the Darth Vader Mr.Potato head), Yoda Green Apples (because Yoda’s green), and Blue Milk (If I have to explain this to you, get off my blog)
Today was a long day. After waking up at 8 am because I fell asleep on the couch about 9 or so hours before, it was non-stop Star Wars. It began with TinyTot and I picking out Star Wars shirts for each other out of our massive collections. It was quite humorous because we both picked out Chewbacca themed shirts for each other. Ms.Katie picked her own shirt, an R2-D2 shirt, to be different.
We took a trip to multiple stores in search of Star Wars Shoes which could not be found. It was quite amusing how much not finding Star Wars shoes upset TinyTot. I mean he was quite bummed out. Even after I mentioned about going to the toy store, he still hung his head, defeated and deflated at the prospect of not having Star Wars shoes to wear after his other ones got a massive hole in them from playing too hard.
Toys R Us had a mini Star Wars Day event where you got a free small Lego set along with a coupon for 20% off a Star Wars item. We got some more Legos and a pack of Fighter Pods.
You would not believe how hard it is to find basic Star Wars sheets in stores. I mean you can get Angry Birds Star Wars ones at Target, but no where else has just plain Star Wars. Hell we’d even settle for Clone Wars sheets but nooooo. None could be found. I’ll have to order them online. Yes I know Pottery Barn Kids has them, that’s where we got the Star Wars sheets for Ms.Katie and I’s bed. I don’t know if I want to pay that kind of money however for new sheets for TinyTot’s new loft bed.
After a dinner of Han Burgers. Vader Tots, Yoda Green Apples, and Blue Milk we went to the park. TinyTot decided he wanted to dress up as Anakin, as he did during Halloween, because we were going to have a lightsaber battle. That was excellent. He is getting better at matching my attacks with a quick parry and riposte. There was an awesome moment where I ran at him to strike and he quickly drew his blade and quickly matched my blade, too bad he was being self conscious of the saber’s blade and had to check to see if it extended all the way (we were using the telescoping, collapsible sabers) instead of attacking me from behind.
We took our May the Fourth Picture and came home. Then we decided to put on the Movie*. However, we did not put on the bluray, but the unaltered DVD version**… because we are purists.
TinyTot didn’t last though. He fell asleep before the Trash Compactor Scene. Oh well. I’m gonna finish the movie and then play some of The Old Republic.
May the Fourth Be With You, always.
* The original 1977 Star Wars movie now known as A New Hope
** 2006 DVD ‘bonus disc’ - unaltered version transferred from 1993 laser disk version.
