Wordless Wednesday was never this geeky. I know. When my husband saw this he said, “Truly there are no words.” Actually, he said, ” That is the geekiest thing I’ve ever seen.” I’m OK with that. I spent all of kindergarten with my hair in two side buns. I saw Star Wars 26 times in the summer of 1977 – and the first time it was with my dad in Times Square at the old Astor Plaza Theater. I was 5.
And so yesterday when I was at the holiday showcase event for Xbox360 Kinect and R2D2 was there – for real people – I could not resist taking advantage of having a hooded sweater coat with me and posing like this. What you can’t tell from the picture is that when I did that the prerecorded message of Princess Leia saying, “Help me Obi-Wan you’re my only hope,” played from deep inside that lovable droid. Now I don’t feel so bad that I missed all the fun at Comic Con last week.
Thank you GayNycDad for taking the pic!!
