Even though it’s a Monday, The Force is strong in this one, so I will do my best to not allow the day of the week to turn me to the Dark Side…
I make no secret of my Star Wars geekdom, and I am trading in my toga for a Jedi robe for the day. It’s super comfy, and it’s got a hood in case it rains.
Star Wars will always have a special place in my heart because it’s the movie that inspired me to be a writer. I cannot wait for Episode 7, and I look forward to seeing not only where the new trilogy goes, but also what Disney does with the other stand alone movies.
Do you think the Jedi drank coffee or dreaded Mondays? I have a sneaking suspicion that they used the Jedi Mind Trick to convince themselves it wasn’t Monday. At least that’s what I would’ve done.
I am dreading going back to work today after my mini vacation.
It was so nice to simply be in Writer Mode for the past several days. There’s really no stress involved there, and I just wrote when the mood hit me (which was often).
I got a lot of work done yesterday on the outline for that book I’ve been wanting to write. Once I started putting ideas down on paper, I realized that I had this story much more fleshed out than I had realized.
That was a nice surprise.
I went running three of the last four days, which was definitely needed, but has left me quite sore this morning.
Of course, the highlight of the weekend had to be my beloved Yankees sweeping a three game series from the hated Red Sox up in Boston. My Facebook news feed, which is usually crawling with comments from Red Sox trolls, has been pleasantly free of infection all weekend.
A Yankees sweep in Boston is almost as cool as blowing up the Death Star!
Well, I’d better go see what those pesky droids are up to, and then it’s time to get ready for work. There’s plenty of coffee in the Cantina and the band will be playing all day. So get in there and have some fun.
Just remember, only 17 hours until Monday is done.
May the Force be with you!
