Behold The Awesome Power Of The Dark Side Of The Force!

Ya know, I used to think (well, hope really) that after the horrendous tailspin which was the final three installments of the Star Wars saga, the whole thing would just sort of peter out and George Lucas would gradually fade into the background of cultural influence.

Well, somebody evidently found my lack of faith disturbing.

The middle Llama-ette celebrated her ninth birthday over the weekend with a party at Orgle Manor for about twenty of her closest friends. The entertainment was provided by a local magician, and at the end of his show he handed out balloons shaped to request.

Almost every single one of the kiddies wanted not a poodle or a swan or whatnot, but instead a balloon light-saber. And as they armed themselves, a pitched battle broke out featuring all the characters from the Clone Wars cartoon series. I was quite surprised to learn that all the Llama-ettes were well up on the dramatis personae, as I didn't even know they watched the durn thing.


I suppose in one sense it's not all that different from Cowboys and Indians, but I sure wish it were somebody else spinning the tale.

I, for one, am over the whole Star Wars thing...including Ewan "Ooobi Doobi" McGregor.
