Today is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!
Get on down to your local comic shop for a free issue of a comic you would never read otherwise!
Seriously, though - it's always fun, and sometimes my comic shop will give away free movie passes to upcoming movies. I gotta think Bedrock City Comics in Houston is going to have some tickets from Iron Man Screenings locally.
Today we're going to the Post Office to get Abby's passport.
Could be tough - she still hasn't gotten her name changed on her Driver's License. It's only been 3 and a half years. I gotta go and vouch for her. Maybe knock some heads or something.
If she can't get her passport pretty soon, there's no way she's going to be able to get her Brazilian Visa in time for our trip at the end of June.
As I write this, I'm watching Star Wars Episode I: the Phantom Menace on SpikeTV.
I just watched the part where Qui Gonn asks Anakin's mom who his father was.
"There was no father." she says.
"I carried him. I gave birth. I raised him. I can't explain what happened."
That's a part of the mythos that I remember made me think, "Say whaaa!"
I guess he was conceived by midichlorians? A child of the force?
I wonder if Lucas ever wrote Shmi Skywalker's Magnificat?
Anyway - I did a google search and found a bunch of people who think Anakin was "conceived" by Darth Plagueis, who, according to Palpatine's testimony to Anakin in Episode III was the only Sith who was powerful enough to "create life".
This may be the geekiest post I've ever written.
