Let’s all break out our space oboes to celebrate today’s holiday: Star Wars Day! Personally, I feel we all should have been given the day off so we could’ve ceremoniously put on our Stormtrooper costumes piece by piece (that alone would take an hour), light our candles in observance of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and perform a Gregorian chant version of the Mos Eisley Cantina song while burning the evil demon that is The Phantom Menace. Oh well. Instead, I’ll just pick up my copy of The Empire Strikes Back and hold it like I did by the lake on Naboo.

How are you celebrating Star Wars day? And let’s go fight with some drunken aliens on Tatooine, shall we?
