Today my dad and I went to see Star Wars in Concert at the Amway Arena, and my god, it was glorious. GLORIOUS. An entire stadium of people who love Star Wars enough to buy tickets to an orchestrated movie montage narrated by Anthony Daniels. It was almost worth the price of admission alone for the opening crawl.



They had props outside the theater for you to look at, which I checked out during intermission. The coolest, in my opinion, were the Chewie suit and Han in carbonite. While I was walking past the display with two Ewok costumes in it, there were two boys up close staring at it, and I heard their father chide them as I walked away: "Come on, you remember how I feel about Ewoks."

Han Solo tiglo carbonite! )

I saw people in full Jedi regalia, little children in Jedi costumes, a little girl dressed as Leia in the row in front of me, hundreds of Star Wars shirts, and even a Slave Leia descending the staircase next to me. It was fantastic seeing so many happy nerds of all ages and all kinds.

It was amazing. I'm so glad I went. They did a wonderful job of blending clips with the music to tell a condensed version of the entire saga from Episode I to VI. I would not have protested the addition of more Han Solo, but I wouldn't take anything away. The entire arena gave the orchestra a standing ovation; Anthony Daniels was clearly shocked by it. After exclaiming "You really don't want to go home yet!" he asked if we would like to return to the Dark Side, and then we had an encore of the Imperial March!

I am so glad my father dragged my unwilling ten year-old self to the theaters to see the original trilogy's rerelease. He had no idea what an impact that movie would have on my life, and how much I would love it almost fifteen years later.

Thanks, Dad.

The last few days of high school ever were rather awesome. I didn't have anything to do, really, so I just wandered around. I had a terrible time with the yearbook exam, though. I had to make a whole yearbook spread on InDesign, which I never learned and only just learned in time for the exam. Somehow I survived. I ended up skipping Heussner's class and going to drama for both days, and by skipping I mean telling Ms. Heussner that I was going to another class and then going. I wandered around most of the day with no pass, reveling in my seniority. Wednesday was a completely blank nothing no work day and it was awesome. My very last day of high school. I skipped weight training completely and went and hung out in Mrs Rehm's class. I felt really weepy because it was me, Cassie and Becky hanging out again, just like it was in ninth grade. We even had some Blue Fic to read and watched bits of Remember the Titans and had a miniature conniption when the VCR operators almost skipped the boykissage.

After that, I went home and soon Grant came over with The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and we watched some of that and then the Lost finale Part One. Then we went off to see Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Geeks were there by the droves. They had choreographed lightsaber battles until the manager told them to knock it off. FIGHT THE MAN! Then there were two hours to go and noooothing to do but wait. We tried sleeping on each other and almost did, but people were retarded and loud and make them go awaaaaay. Finally the movie came.

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG SLASH OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG AAAAAUGH CHOSEN ONE AAAUGH SO PERFECT AAAUGH BUT THINGS DID STILL PISS ME OFF AND I'LL TALK ABOUT THEM LATER BUT AAAAHH!

We went to Denny's afterwards and spent most of the time there partially snuggling and partially using each other as support so we wouldn't fall forward asleep into our food. We probably gave people cavities, but I was so happy. We kept making Darth Vader noises at each other like we've been doing all week. I got home around 4:30 and fell into bed and poor Grant got back home at 5:00. 4 hours later we were both at graduation practice this morning where I was barely awake and kept fucking up and we watched the senior video. I sobbed at the end. I'm going to miss West Shore. I'm going to miss all the day-to-day activities and seeing little kids I know and smiling at all my friends and knowing I'm known and loved. I'll miss the people.

They did the senior prank. A car painted blue and silver and with 'Class of 2005' on the hood was reassembled in the commons area. Beautiful, truly beautiful. :) Good job, guys.

We went to the senior picnic afterwards and Becky and I acted very gay again and Grant picked me up a lot. We had cheap barbeque and ice cream and watched a fake arrest. After everyone filtered out, Grant and I stayed behind and talked to Alex and Christa for a while. Then Alex left and we kept on talking to Christa until she had to leave, so we finally decided to trot off, and discovered his ride left without him. Woe! So we called my mom and she came to pick us up and take us to my house. While we were waiting, we went to visit little Tristan in Schle's room and that kid launched himself across the room to give Grant a flying-squirrel hug. Adorable, adorable, adorable.

Back at my house we watched Star Wars: A New Hope on the couch and tried to stay awake. Very, very tired things we were. Now for the last few hours I've been watching TV (OMG THE O.C. FINALE! WTF! Beautifully done last scene, though.) and working on a Very Special Project. Oooh, and I went swimming. Perfect water temperature.

I'm very hungry. Tomorrow morning when I get up I might have to snag some money from the parental units and go to Denny's for - guess, babe, just guess - hashbrowns. Very hungry.

Tomorrow is graduation. And after that, Project Graduation. All-night party at Andretti Thrill Park. I'll have the time of my life.

STAR WARS TRAILER OMGWTF YAAAAGH! GEORGE LUCAS, MY FAITH MAY BE RESTORED! GODDAMMIT! THIS HAPPENS EVERY SINGLE TIME!

Working on my novel while watching The Empire Strikes Back. Wow. Wow, I love this movie so much. Han and Leia have so much chemistry. I've grown up with Star Wars. While everyone liked Luke best, I was totally feeling the lust for Han. Go figure.

Honest to God. I know that technically, there are many Han/Luke moments, but I seriously can't see it. Yeah, whatever, goes out in the deadly snow for him, blah blah blah, but COME ON. The het is too hot! I do not believe in SW slash! It isn't there! Han and Leia have the twoo wuv of all time with SNARK. They bitch and bitch and bitch and bitch.

(Wahhh, the abominable snowman! Yes. Shut up. I know it's a wampa. Why I know this is not anything ever up for discussion.)

Someday I hope to write a couple as awesome as Han and Leia.
