Some Women Love Star Wars, too!

     A little earlier, Swanky sent me a link to the Yoda Backpack from Popgadget: Personal Tech for Women.  The description chided:

Though fully functional like a real backpack, with room for books and adjustable straps, take a tip from the ladies and stay away or at least hide it for only your most geeky guy moments. Unless of course you find that very special girl whose definition of ‘hunky’ includes soda gut and the ability to recite verbatim the Jedi Code.

Never let your boss see your new camera phone this is what happens     Well, they are out there, in the wild.  And unlike most of the guys with such a fixation, some of them are attractive, don’t live with their parents, have jobs and enjoy conversations outside of Star Wars, Star Trek and Science Fiction in general.
     A couple of weeks ago, I met just such a girl, in Knoxville, who had an absolute shrine of Star Wars paraphernalia the like of which I haven’t seen in twenty years.  She told me to let everyone know, she’s a “hot single chic looking for her geeky man.”  😉

     As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m a bit of a Star Wars dork.  I have boxes upon boxes filled with Star Wars memorabilia, from Magazines and Newsletters to Toys to Zippo Lighters.  Now, my Star Wars collection dates back to 1976 (teaser posters and promotional items) and for the most part, ends abruptly in the early 1980’s.  She’s got a mixture like you wouldn’t believe…

     After sending her the link for the Yoda backpack, I had to wonder if she’d seen the English Subtitles on the Chinese version of Stars Wars Episode III.

You are a sacrifice article that I cut up rough now!I should really feeds you all dog!

     Backstroke of the West, indeed. 😉
