Is It Getting Geeky in Here?

Or is it just me?

Today's post is going to have a Star Wars theme. "What???" you're obviously shouting right now, "But, The Former 786, it's Christmas time! Why do you hate Christmas???" Trust me, I don't. Second to Halloween, it's my favorite holiday. And Christmas is followed by the 4th of July, New Year's Eve/Day, St. Patrick's Day, Thanksgiving, Easter, St. Valentine's Day, Groundhog Day, Mother's Day, Veteran's Day, Martin Luther King Day, Father's Day, Washington's Birthday, Arbor Day, Labor Day and Flag Day - IN THAT ORDER!

But I digress.

The reason I chose to do this Star Wars post the week before Christmas is because one of these things is something I really, really want for Christmas (are you reading this, wife of mine?)! But let's start at the very beginning, because it's a very good place to start.

This first part was brought to my attention by, alert reader, Zufelt. It comes from the mind of a guy named Brian Murphy, and it asks the question, "what if Star Wars characters had Facebook accounts?"

And here are a few examples:

So there you go. It made me laugh.


This next part is the Christmas gift that I think anyone could enjoy - and yes, it also has to do with Star Wars.

From the mind of Kayla Kromer, maker of the hamburger bed, comes this beautiful, beautiful bedroom furniture.

YES! IT'S A MILLENNIUM FALCON BED!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!

This comfortable-looking bed was obviously made by someone who had an attention to detail.

"But how do you sleep on it?" you ask.

The top opens up.

And you just snuggle right in - Genius!

Oh, and as an added bonus. . .it has headlights.

Wow. Just. . .just wow.

If you want to know more about the bed, you can click here and read about it on the official Star Wars blog. If you want to know more about Kayla and her creations, you can click here and become her fan on Facebook.

Star Wars.

but the former 786, why do you hate flag day?

the star wars facebook had me laughing aloud! much loved.

the millennium falcon bed wasn't as impressive. and i'd rather get the "i thought they smelled bad on the outside" taun taun sleeping bag, personally.

those facebook pages, though... so dang good....

and thanks for the "breaking dawn" casting link; i'm going to try for "hot vampire #7".

Oh, and I don't hate Flag Day, it still made the list of "favorites" other holidays didn't even make the cut.
