Notes from the end of Empire Strikes Back:
Me: “The Ugnaught looks like Principal Strickland from the Back to the Future movies.”
Lois: “Why is Lando wearing Han’s clothes?”
Lana: “He’s wearing a Han costume!”
Me: “Maybe he didn’t bring any clothes from Bespin and had to rifle through Han’s closet on the Millenium Falcon?”
Me: “Wow! Cybernetic Hand Replacement Therapy has come a LONG way in 20-odd years. And how does Leia manage to avoid the proud Skywalker family tradition of losing your light-saber hand?”
Does anyone know if Leia loses a hand in the Expanded Universe stories? Like, in some training accident at Luke’s Jedi Academy (coming soon to a strip mall near you!)?
The girls are now vacuuming up three days worth of young-child-watching-film droppings before they get to finish out the series. They also had to pause their Lego Star Wars game mid-level so BatMom and I could go to the eye-doc, so they’re finishing that up too.
