I’m in love with R2D2. (Yes, the droid from Star Wars). ð I keep playing with my little stuffed R2D2 toy — it beeps when you press its stomach! It doesn’t take much to amuse me. heh. Anyway, I’ve just started reading the original trilogy books and I watched The Empire Strikes Back earlier tonight and I had a question (I’m looking at YOU Sebastian!): How come R2D2 didn’t recognize Yoda when he and Luke went to the Degobah system? Or at least remembered his name or something? Hmm…
Anyway, I also caught the series (no! *sob*) finale of Felicity. *Semi-spoilers ahead!* — It was umm… ok. I have to admit that I wasn’t crazy about the whole time-traveling idea but at least it helped me understand that Ben is Felicity’s destiny. The writers made that perfectly clear especially with Noel getting married. I’ll always be a FAN though — and watching all those flashbacks of their romance in season 1 made me miss them so much. ::sigh:: The ending shots of the cast were perfect — all of them laughing and smiling. But can someone explain to me why Elena was there at the end? Didn’t she die a few episodes earlier? And Tracy? I liked his character but I didn’t think he was that important to bring back for the final episode, much less the final scene. And I just loved the little “Thank you” commercial from the WB — they really did say “Hey” a lot. ð
So today was a total disaster — all of us promotions crew members for the radio station where I work were getting ready for the events taking place after the actual Bay to Breakers race (food vendors, interactive games, and the big concert featuring Smashmouth) when all of a sudden, it starts to rain. And it isn’t just sprinkling, it’s pouring. So all our stuff is getting soaking wet — the money tank, the spin wheels, the T-shirt giveaways and all our prizes. The event organizers decide to cancel everything — so out in the cold rain, we have to pack everything up and load it back into the van again, which totally sucks because usually at events like these so many people come to our booths and take stuff that we never have to bring anything back to the station. Grr. What a crappy morning.
But I just got home from watching Attack of the Clones again so I guess I’m a happy camper now. ð
Grr — I hate my stupid old computer. I wrote this really really long blog entry and of course, just as I as about to post it, my computer freaks out and erases the entire thing. I hate this thing with a passion.
So I got to see Episode II (the midnight showing) and I thought it was great fun! It was much better than Episode I but I liked that one as well. ð I loved the lightsaber duel between Yoda/Dooku, Mace Windu’s dialogue (I don’t think so!), the R2D2/C3PO banter, and of course, all the Obi-Wan action — especially the one where he’s having a drink at the Coruscant bar and then — bam! He’s doing some major ass-kicking. Surprisingly, I wasn’t too taken with the Ani/Ami romance, although I thought I would be. I’m normally a total sucker when it comes to romances. I just didn’t get *why* she started to love him — I didn’t really see a development or natural progression to their story but that’s just me. Natalie and Hayden were great though and I did enjoy their picnic scenes.
Rob (my boyfriend) has developed a SW obsession — he bought the action figures for Mace Windu, Jango Fett, and Padme. AND he ordered Yoda, R2D2, Anakin with the duel lightsaber, and another Mace from Amazon. lol. He even bought me the Obi-Wan toy cause he knows how much I love him. ::giggly smile::
Gah. I have to be at work tomorrow at 5:30 am! AM! It’s terribly insane to be up that early on a Sunday morning, I know. I’m going to be working at this huge event in San Francisco called Bay to Breakers. It’s the world’s largest footrace (or so they say) and it starts at the edge of the San Francisco Bay, crosses the city and ends at the breakers of the Pacific Ocean. I think I’m going to be helping out with registration and check-in for the runners and participants. Should be lots of fun, but tiring as well.
Gah — I’m not even going to say anything about DC cause if you know me by now, then you know I hated it. With a passion. I wish I could say that I am not going to tune in for Season 6. But I’m a glutton for punishment. ::sigh:: And did the closing shot of the episode freak anyone else out? The way the camera captured Joey’s smiling face was creepy.
Anyway, gonna see Star Wars (whee!) in 2 hours!!! The bad thing is that I’m only going to have, like 3 hours of sleep before I have to wake up for work. Ah well.
Wow… so Roswell’s over. “Graduation” was not the most satisfying season finale but it made me smile, made me cry and it made me remember why I fell in love with the show way back in the good old days of Season 1. I loved the scene between Michael and Maria when he told her that she’s the only one for him, I loved the good-bye scene between Kyle and Valenti, I loved the Max/Michael hug and I adored the fan shout-out with the bumper sticker at the end. ::sigh::
Yay! Star Wars tomorrow at midnight baby! Whee!
