Time to get my geek hat on

OK, so maybe you know that I like Star Wars? Maybe you know I'm lying and that I really LOVE Star Wars.

But even a STN (Star Wars Nerd, to all you haters out there) has a few questions about the movie. Questions that have plagued not only me, but Jay as well. If any of you know the answers, please share them and I'll give you a prize. No, it won't be a speeder or R2 unit; just me going out of my way to leave a totally awesome comment on your blog about the Rebel Alliance and how the Empire sucks bantha fodder. You know you want it. SO here are my questions (and Jay's):

  1. How come Ben "Obi-Wan" Kenobi doesn't remember that there is another Jedi child out there? I mean, HELLO, he was there when Luke and Leia were born. Is there Alzheimer's in a galaxy far, far away?
  2. Why do the Droids not remember Ben Kenobi or Yoda? Shouldn't R2 have recognized Yoda when him and Luke crash landed in the swamp on Dagobah? Or recognized Ben on Tatooine?
  3. Why didn't R2 or C3PO recognize Luke's house when the Jawa's sold them to Uncle Owen? Were their memories erased? I guess they must have been.
  4. When did Anakin give Ben a lightsaber to give to Luke. He thought his kids had died with Padme, right? Was Obi-Wan just saying that?
  5. They never mention Boba Fett's name in E.S.B., but everyone knew his name? How?
I don't know why I never questioned these things before. I have watched them thousands of times, a time or two high out of my mind (and that is when I normally come up with these insightful questions), but last night, after watching Empire Strikes Back for the second time in 2 days, Jay and I were asking each other these things, and neither of us knew.

Maybe the answers lie in the books? I never read them so I don't know if they do or not. I should look into that.

Speaking of reading, if any of you are huge readers like me, you should find me on and be my buddy. We can check out what the others are reading and suggest titles. Sounds a bit nerdy when I write it down, but honestly, whenever I talk to my friends I always ask what they are reading. I am always on the hunt for the next best book to read, and quite honestly, some of my favorite books were suggested to me by friends. I never would have picked up Harry Potter if it wasn't for Kerri. And now they are one of my favorite series. You can find me just by putting in my name, Christie Ferris. Pretty easy.

Gotta take Charlie to the vet to have his bladder drained. I'll explain later.

Oooh, I'm on goodreads, too. How do I find you on there? (I'm not very competent, yet.)

And sorry, I don't know any of the answers to your Star Wars questions.

I just finished Marley and Me. Have you read it yet? If you haven't go immediately to the bookstore and get yourself a copy. :-) And as for Star Wars... nope.. don't know any of that stuff. Ask me about The Princess Bride though and I will talk your ear off.

Star Wars confuses me. I was out when the brother and sister started making out. Plus, why was the chick making out with her awkward looking brother when she should have been banging young Harrison Ford?
