Who’s your daddy?

If the video wasn’t self explanatory, I was not hiding in some random woman’s ultrasound appointment. I’m going to be a dad! Michelle is going to be a mom! A young Padawan is on the way!

The Force is strong with my family.

Check out those hot kicks my niece is wearing! I bought them and had them shipped to my brother’s house. My sister-in-law thought my brother ordered them and got mad. I’m not sure why though. Clearly these shoes are not just for boys.

Happy Halloween!

Michelle, Fairy Princess.

Me, Toddler Rocket! (That sounded terrible.)

Jack Skellington, The Pumpkin King.

Boba Fett, The Baddest Mother F’ing Bounty Hunter in the Galaxy!

Sometimes I like my Whisky Han style…Solo.

I haven’t been going into the office to work a lot lately, because I get more done from my home office. Having two 23″ screens just lets me be way more productive. I did happen to go into the office on Tuesday, and I was so glad I did. This showed up via UPS.

Han Solo frozen in carbonite…ice cube tray!

C3P0: Oh, they’ve encased him in carbonite. He should be quite well protected.

Jabba the Hutt: There will be no bargain. I will not to give up my favorite decoration. I like Captain Solo where he is.

That’s right. I will never be drinking alone as long as I have one of the best smugglers in the galaxy by my side. Pick up your own ice cube tray here.

Star Wars Nerds Unite!

I mentioned that I got to go to the Hollywood Bowl to see Star Wars in Concert with Michelle. It was absolutely amazing.

Finally, I can wear my hoodie without fear of judgement.

OMG! It’s starting. Luke and Leia are sitting in front of us too!

Darth Vader! Michelle looked at her hoodie and said, “That’s me!”

Mr. Anthony Daniels, C3P0 himself narrated the show.

They had some really cool animations and sketches they showed during the show.

The firing of the Death Star’s primary weapon, a superlaser created by the hypermatter reactor.

How dare you fall asleep during this awesome display of awesomeness!

Special effects and screen display aside, the orchestra was fantastic. I would find myself bobbing my head to the music of my favorite sci-fi franchise and then realize the music was being played live. Incredible performance.

Those are all light sabers, being swayed back and forth along to the music. These are my people.

This was such a great experience. Many thanks to Michelle’s dad and mom, who not only tolerate my love for geeky things like this, but also encourage it by getting us the tickets. Michelle is on her way to joining the Dark Side, which is the best side because “evil will always triumph over good, because good is dumb.”

Guess where I’ll be tonight!

Star Wars in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl!

I have the best wife in the world!

Some of you may have seen Michelle’s tweet a couple days ago.

I don’t know what possessed her to look up the product again, but apparently it’s no longer sold out on the pre-order! While your wife will never be as good as mine, you can at least have your Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Ice Cube Trays!

Third installment of Family Guy Star Wars movies.

The Family Guy crew has done such a great job with the first two of the series. I can’t wait to see this third one. I hope they never make Episodes 1-3 though. They’re too terrible to spoof.

The Force of Typography

I love it when someone combines two things I love individually into something more beautiful. Bacon wrapped hot dogs. Bacon wrapped dates. Bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers. Okay, most of them involve bacon, but on rare occasions they involve combining two things, neither of which are bacon. This time it’s typography and Star Wars.

I’m an uncle!

I promise to be the best uncle possible, and not the creepy uncle that lives in a van with no windows in the alley behind the record store. I’ve even started to prepare for my first talk with niece on an important subject that you can never have too early in a child’s life.
