So, His Awesomeness and I are big honking geeks. We like it that way. Last summer, we decided that it would be cool to watch all 6 Star Wars films in order. 1-6 Phantom Menace through Return of the Jedi. That way the whole thing has a happy ending.
Of course we couldn't just watch them over the course of several nights. Oh no. That would've been reasonable. We decided that we needed to do it all in one day and invite people over and have a party. What with that whole wedding thing in November, it wasn't practical to do it right away. This past Saturday, we did it.
We started at 10 AM by ourselves (the one completist who was going to join us had a death in the family) and continued on until almost midnight. I documented the entire thing live blog style. I didn't actually live blog because I didn't think anyone would actually care that much. I'd just start posting it the following day.
Um, yeah. That was before I knew what 14 hours of Star Wars would do to me. I developed a headache at some point and the next day, I was completely exhausted. I was so worn out from spending the day on the couch watching TV that the only thing I could do was watch TV.
My notes run 11 pages, so I'll be posting them one film at a time. Brace yourself.
