Yahoo wrote:May 4 is a special occasion for "scruffy-looking nerfherders" and closet fans of Aunt Beru. You see, today is "Star Wars Day." To the best of our knowledge there's no official party or convention, but there is a kind of secret handshake, albeit a verbal one. Instead of saying "may the force be with you," (as we all do hundreds of times every day) those in the know say "may the fourth be with you." Get it? May the fourth?
Honestly, we're a little embarrassed to be writing about this, but when the searches surge, we don't have a choice. So, rather than judge from atop Mt. Cool, we'll instead imagine May 4 as a day of togetherness for a galaxy far, far away. It's a day when Chewbacca and C-3PO put their bickering behind them. It's a day when Obi-Wan and the walrus guy from the cantina can kick back with a tall glass of blue milk. It's a day when Darth Vader is a little less angry, Jar-Jar is a little less annoying, and Luke and Leia are a little less, ahem, chummy. Go ahead and hug your nearest Jawa. It's Star Wars Day.
Just took my kids to the Star Wars exhibit at Boston's Museum of Science over April vacation. It was awesome, lots of life size characters, a real R2D2 and 3PO, a chance to sit in the cockpit of the Millinniuem Falcon....
My kids liked it. I loved it.
Happy Star Wars Day.... and TK-421... why aren't you at your post?
I have the Star Wars complete Saga calendar for 2006 (I just flipped it to May), classic Han Solo and slavegirl Leia miniatures, and the entire cast of major characters (from all movies) as my desktop background. In addition, there's a picture of me and my wife dressed up as young Obi-Wan and Darth Maul (I was Obi) for Halloween several years ago. This is all at work too.
I'm not wearing my Star Wars underwear today, or even my Star Wars shirts though. I'm also going to be 29 in a month. Is that bad?
