lightsabers smash & crackle...

21 July 2008

While playing Lego Star Wars II, the 4yo and 6yo argue again...

Lam: Hey, it's Darth Maul!

Mini: No, that's Darth Sidious.

Lam: Darth Maul.

Mini: Sidious.

Me: Actually, that's Darth Vader.

Lam: Oh.

Mini: *looking doubtful* Vader?

lol! Last night (don't know why it popped into my head last night) I was going to change my FB status to "...really needs to rent the "first" three StarWars movies, and will be in a cold, cold grave before she removes the air-quotes" Maybe I'll do it tonight.

There is no other Darth (maybe if I'd seen the "first" ones, I'd be more accepting, but here we are)

@harmzie -
Agreed, girlfriend! :)
I think the *only* way it should be watched is 4-5-6-1-2-3. I feel bad for our kids who will never know the pleasure of having experienced them in that order.

That's how Mini C-Flo is going to be schooled in the ways of Star Wars: 4-5-6-1-2-3. It's the ONLY way to go! :)

Actually, I think the correct way to introduce Star Wars movies to offspring is to hand-edit certain movies to remove any and all appearances of Jar Jar. And of the Ewoks.

Actually, I think someone created a Jar Jar-free version of the movie ---

I don't know where to get it, though.

Boba Fett was my favourite shadow character. He was so mysterious & such a renegade... dreamy...

I know that doesn't relate to anything, but I don't have a blog to jot down my random thoughts, so I just use yours...

@cyndi -
that's smart parenting! :)

@albert -
I need to get me one of those!!! I'll keep my eyes peeled for that. Thanks for letting me know about it.
Unfortunately, the presence of Jar-Jar is essential at some point as he is the one who hands complete control of the Republic to Palpatine. He's such a moron.

@caryn -
goodness, that's cool! looked like such fun! okay, I want one of those :)

@harmzie -
so, it's the dark mysterious dudes you like, eh? makes sense from your freebie standpoint... not from the mr. harmzie standpoint tho... not quite dark and mysterious, that one! :)

you are welcome to blah-blah on my blog-blog... you should twitter too! mini-blogging at its finest :)

harmzie said...

Oh he's mysterious, baby. Maybe not so often in the *dark* & mysterious way. Sometimes I think more in the Scooby Doo way... but then other times... Did I tell you about the surprise anniversary getaway? (I mean, not so much the *actual* getaway, I'll spare you those details :-P) -- very mysterious was he. For two weeks before! Ok, not so much the dark.

Nenette AM said...

@harmzie -
No, you never did tell me about the anniversary getaway surprise! Do tell... yes, definitely not the play-by-play, but everything else would be appreciated. :)
does sound very mysterious... with a touch of sneaky... you so lucky! :)
