Day 150: Bounty by Missy


i coulda thought a lot more about this theme and done herds better, but we've been gone for two days while our floors were refinished...
the girls and i stayed in a hotel room with an indoor pool...
the pool room reminded me of the cloning facilities on kamino...
(if only it had been stormy outside, right?!)
i always feel bad for boba...
he's just another clone...

Day 147: Sister by Missy


"Remember, a Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware. Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side are they. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Luke... Luke... do not... do not underestimate the powers of the Emperor or suffer your father's fate you will. Luke, when gone am I... the last of the Jedi will you be. Luke, the Force runs strong in your family. Pass on what you have learned, Luke. There is... another... Sky... walker........."

(hope i didn't ruin anything for anyone....)

Day 145: Blue by Missy


i decorated our tree this year with red and gold lights

'i'll have a blue christmas without you'
to myself...
elvis style, of course!!

Day 140: Snow by J.

I remember seeing snow on the list of themes and I thought that it would be tough since it never really snows here (even tougher for others too). But somehow today we got more snow than I remember in the last 5 years combined... and it's still going.

Anyway, my camera is stuck in my car (which is pretty much buried - so I had to use my iPhone. Here's our snowy front door.

Larger version.

Day 140: Snow by Missy


while i can appreciate the beauty of new fallen snow, i am not a fan...
it's cold... and i don't do cold.
it hasn't eased up at all, and i don't think it will any time soon..
so, while much of south jersey enjoys this winter wonderland,
where am i?
on the couch under a wonderfully warm blanket imagining myself
on hoth in a split tauntaun...

Day 137: Destroyer by Missy


this is a picture of a bubble and iris's legs and feet...
my inspiration was droideka's, otherwise know as, destroyer droids...
i think that the deflector shields resemble bubbles...

Day 136: Magnitude by Missy


this was a wicked hard theme...
in astronomy, magnitude is defined as the degree of brightness of a celestial body designated on a numerical scale, on which the brightest star has magnitude -1.4 and the faintest visible star has magnitude 6...
in star wars episode VI, ackbar says "we have no choice, general calrissian! our cruisers can't repel firepower of that magnitude"...
this shot is showing a jump into hyperspace...

Day 134: Life by Missy


Midi-chlorians are intelligent microscopic life-forms that serve as organelles within all living cells, existing in a symbiotic relationship with the beings they inhabit and comprising a collective consciousness amongst themselves.
Midi-chlorians, in fact, are necessary for life to exist...

Day 133: Sand by Missy


how do tusken raiders cheat on their taxes?
they always single file...
y'know, to hide their numbers.

A critical success can mean everything.

day 131: Star by Taylor

A while ago when I still lived at home, there was a clearance sale on a ton of old gaming books and such, including Werewolf: The Apocalypse totems. I've had the totem for Stargazers hanging in my truck since about '99. had to play with the lighting to get it to show up bright enough without using the flash, otherwise it looks like this

Day 131: Star by Becca

As you can see, my young apprentice, your friends have failed.
Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station!
Fire at will, Commander!

Day 131: Star by Missy


i didn't feel like thinking too much today...
and since our sun is a star.......
but in order to tie it in with the star wars theme, in a roundabout way,
this shot did remind me of cloud city...

Day 124: Droid by J.

Snapped this at a screening of the Star Wars Holiday Special tonight. It's hard to believe, but C3P0 is one of the least annoying characters in that special.

No larger version.

Day 124: Droid by Missy


'these aren't the droids you're looking for...'
(obi wan is my favoritest ever!!!)

So, with that, if you follow this link, it will take you to the calendar that is synced up to that part of the blog so yo ucan at least stay on top of the themes:

Todays theme is Droid by the way

Day 123: Milk By Kate

What better way to enjoy your blue milk then in vintage Burger King glasses from the orginal release of Return of the Jedi and Empire Strikes Back. (Thanks to my hubby since I never saw any of the Star Wars movies until they were re-released!)

Day 123: Milk by J.

I don't recommend trying to eat cookies and milk while you drive. It's really difficult. Especially dipping the cookies..

Larger version.

Day 123: Milk by Taylor

After a long hard day of moisture farming, the only thing that can quench your thirst is a tall cold glass of blue milk.

Day 123: Milk by CC

There is nothing more refreshing than a glass of milk with breakfast!

Day 123: Milk by Missy


santa's back on the blue milk for those of you
who leave cookies out on christmas eve...
thought you should know...

Day 122: Cantina by J.

Here's a quickie. Was running around all day and unable to get out all of my good Star Wars stuff. So I went through a bunch of boxes of carded figures and found some that I never knew I had. Some really weird, somewhat recent ones like the concept figures and more. But then I came across this one.

He's Ellors Madak, the Duros Cantina Alien. Also seen in Luke's awesome Cantina scene earlier. He was the Fans Choice figure in 2003 and my first Tri-Logo packaged figure. I bought him in Canada on our honeymoon. We drove from Niagara Falls to St. Catherines just to go to Toys R Us and get this figure.

Larger version.

Day 122: Cantina by Missy


you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy...

Day 122: Cantina by Becca

If I was a duck, this would be my Cantina, good food, drink and friends.

Day 122: Cantina by CC

When I think of the Cantina, I think of shady characters and crazy drinks! (also, great music, but I couldn't get that in.)

Day 122: Cantina by Luke

Okay, Taylor just informed me that all of December's pretty much Star Wars themed and I can't pass on that. Hello all. It's good to be back.
