Tinkering the Strokin’ The Beard tee… This one has a nice Retro Feel. I love it.
I had to model the Think Geek Chewbacca Messenger Bag. I must say, this bag is awesome. There is a magnet in it for an ensured close. There are long straps that go under the bag. It’s wide enough to fit an 11” computer, tablet or whatever else you wish. I am in love with this bag.

A. If you haven’t watched The Crash Course, or the Vlog Brothers Channel or Series they produce for that matter, go do it.
You know those awesome tees I always talk about and that can be see in pictures of me? Seibei tees?

If you don’t have a Seibei in your closet, you need to check out this awesome link here.
‘Death of Yoda’ - Composed and Conducted by John Williams, Performed by The London Symphony Orchestra
This song makes me sad every time I hear it. Whenever something is going wrong in my life I think of Luke’s return trip to Dagobah. The sad time when he loses Yoda and has the heart to heart with Obi-Wan’s ghost. You learn a great deal from this scene. It’s one of the mellower scenes in the movie. I always loved the scenes on Dagobah. I wish the scenes were longer. Yoda is one of my favorite characters. His death always brings sadness to my heart, every time.
‘Han Solo & The Princess’ - Composed and Conducted by John Williams, Performed by The London Symphony Orchestra
I could go on forever about how much I love the theme to Han and Leia’s romance, but I’m tired and really don’t feel like getting into it. Lets just say this piece is the bees knees.
‘Princess Leia’s Theme’ -Composed and Conducted by John Williams, Performed by The London Symphony Orchestra
Let me just take a moment and tell you how awesome this piece of music is. Ever since I heard it for the first time it has been one of my favorite compositions from the first movie. It ranks up there with ‘The Hologram/Binary Sunset’, ‘Cantina Band’ & ‘Tales of a Jedi Knight/Learn About the Force (Medley)’. One distinct memory I can remember is borrowing my best friends copy of Star Wars (the video game) for the Game Boy and falling asleep on my bedroom floor with the game on just to hear that song as it was the one they played during the menu. It’s sweet and has a beautiful melody. I cannot say enough of how wonderful this piece is. I am extremely glad I was fortunate to hear it during Star Wars in Concert a few years back.
Finally. I got the good stuff.
(the ziplock is to keep the 12 that I’m not baking fresh for later. Because I love my ziplocks.)
Frustrated with personal matters lately, I decided to splurge and get myself a few of the $4 Lego sets they had in the Easter section of Target. The twenty minutes it took me to build them wasn’t much but it was enough to make me smile even if it only was for a few moments.
‘Walking By’ - Something Corporate
I can’t tell you how many times I have listened to this song late at night when trying to fall asleep. All through out high school for as long as I can remember I had a problem with falling asleep with my headphones on. It was the only way I could fall asleep. I broke so many pair rolling in my sleep before they invented the ear-bud style. Then it was always a strangulation worry. I remember listening to my burned CDs featuring SoCo songs, trying to fall asleep in my old bedroom at the house I grew up in. Sadly my mom sold that house freshman year of college and moved away. So many good memories in that house. So many good memories from my past…
Especially ones with music. I actually have tried to find a Cheshire Cat doorstop because of this song. Sadly, I cannot find one.
TinyTot, Katie and I had the best time at the Braves game yesterday. They beat the Nationals 2-0. It was cold and rainy but after buying the little one a second sweatshirt everything was alright. I dealt with the cold like a champ. We also got our first baseball of the season, a BP ball that was hit down the line near where we were standing before the game. I dove over the railing and used my hat to get it.
