It's early, forgive me...

As part of my morning routine, I jumped on the Internet this morning to check email, read Mike Straka, and look up the daily newspaper online from...well, I won't say where I used to live. It was in PA, that's all I'm saying.

Anyway, why do I do this if I don't live there anymore? Death, folks. Every time I called my buddy Elvis, it seemed like someone had just died or had died a month ago, and I didn't know. You know, parents of kids I went to high school with, that kind of stuff. So I check the obituaries every day. Well, today the site wasn't available, so I read a letter to the editor and was surprised to read that someone was upset over the placement of an article concerning the search for WMD's. I guess the article was put on the bottom of the second page, not on the front page, where this reader thought it should be. I was kind of surprised. We all know PA is a blue BLUE state, and this town is definitely BLUEBLUEBLUE, and I always thought that newspaper was too. So then, why bury that article? But, hey, in my defense, it is early in the morning, and I'm not a journalist, and to be honest I really don't care about where articles are placed. It is interesting, though, to read letters to the editor.

Hmmmm...is it odd that I'm really getting excited about the new Star Wars movie? I've said before that I was never a fan in the past. I wasn't all hot for Luke Skywalker or Han Solo waybackwhen, and I hadn't even seen any of those first movies until I met my husband. But, I got all caught up and am now really excited. So excited that I'm even considering getting all those "fill in the gaps" books that are out there. Obsessive? Perhaps, but I like the whole story continuation aspect. You know, how Anakin becomes Darth Vader, and what happens to Luke and Leia?

I can't wait! Husband and I have planned a "Star Wars-athon" when "Sith" comes out on DVD. We're going to "lay like broccoli" and watch all six movies. Come on, I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to do this. Son is excited too, his Gramma got him a Darth Vader figure with a shield AND a light saber...I have to say it's pretty cool.

Believe it or not, I have nothing else to say!
