Last night and tonight I watched Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. I can't even put into words why I love Star Wars. Sometimes it doesn't even make sense to me, nor do I understand why I get all worked up when I know what will happen!

So I'm sitting here wondering why I always want to break grammatical rules and start sentences with a conjunction, as I just did. I see others do it all the time and I think, ugh, bad, and then I do it.

As I sit here eating fudge with a fork, I wonder why fudge shops are so often located in touristy places. I rarely see them elsewhere, which is a shame. Gourmet fudge is so good. Maybe it's a good thing I don't come across it very often. Yay for maple fudge.

The more I consider it, the more I realize that being crazy about a movie isn't strange or uncommon. I think I just thought it was weird that more people were not huge fans of some of the movies I am. The first time I saw Pride and Prejudice, I was completely floored. It was major love at first viewing. I can't think of another movie I loved that much, that quickly, not even Star Wars or Lord of the Rings. I convinced someone else to watch it, and he (maybe the fact it was a guy was the problem) totally didn't get it. I just watched it again last night with my sister, who had not seen it. Since it's been a few months since the last viewing, I could see how someone might just think it like any other movie. I think my sister liked it, but I know it wasn't HOLY CRAP LOVE like me. Still, there might be a movie she absolutely loves that I just think meh, or might not even like. Actually, she was pretty gung ho over The Osbournes and finally made me sit and watch one episode. I laughed, but was also sort of o_O afterwards. I guess fangirling loving a movie/book/tv show/musician/etc isn't weird. Not everyone will share the same feelings, that's all.

Geek post!

Thanks to the heads-up from [livejournal.com profile] holbytla a few weeks back, I just preordered the Lord of the Rings limited edition theatrical/extended edition all in one thingie. LOL I don't know what to call it! www.lordoftherings.net has a link describing it. Yeah, so I have 5 of the 6 already (only missing FOTR theatrical) but dude, who can argue with me here? As I'm on Amazon, they of course show me the Star Wars original trilogy old/new all in one dvds. Might wait on that, or just get it at Target when it comes out in September.

Oh yeah, LOST season 2 comes out in September!

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] annebloom188 I'm listening to Josh Groban again.

I have work to do, but here I am procrastinating again. :)

I made it. I freaked out a little last night, but I'm calm at the moment. I just don't take not knowing things very well. I panic because I want to be a good teacher and meet the needs of my incredibly diverse population, all while doing what the state orders and making sure they pass a few freaking tests in the spring.

I woke up and got up before 8am on a Saturday. I am dying to go back to bed, but I shouldn't. However, I can't think of anything really productive I want to do right now, not even go get coffee. I just want to rest my weary muscles. At some point I need to take my phone to Verizon, since it stopped working yesterday. This morning it says dead battery, which makes no sense. So, now it's charging, and if that doesn't fix things, I'll take it in.

I now know that I can leave my hair straightener on for 14 hours, and it won't catch fire and burn my apartment down. Not that I want to test this theory again, but boy was I surprised to find it on the other night. My old one had an auto shut-off.

Maybe I should go back to bed, since my brain isn't working quite yet. Or, maybe I'll eat some breakfast.

Oh yeah, as I was watching Return of the Sith last night, I realized that Padme isn't a wuss through the entire thing. She starts out normally, but I only got to the Coruscant Cirque du Soleil scene before going to bed.

I'm watching Attack of the Clones, and the more I watch, the more upset I am about what George Lucas did to Padme's character in E3. Why did you have to make her a weak, whiney little thing? Why did you edit out the one scene where she wasn't sappy? I'd be happier if Anakin had killed her himself than losing her will to live. Bah.

[livejournal.com profile] ewanspotter you've tainted Return of the Jedi for me. Every time I get to the part where Luke asks Leia about her mother, I think "incontinuity!" It never bothered me until you said something about it.
