A Long Time Ago in… Space: the Final Frontier

Okay, I’m probably going to catch all kinds of flak for that title, but here’s the thing. I love Star Wars. AND I love Star Trek. In my perfect world, Scotty, Chewy, Chekov, and Lando would hang out Big Bang Theory style. When Kirk gets flirty Leia would call him a scruffy-looking Tribble herder. Han Solo would give Spock a great big live long and prosper high-five. Because, really, how awesome would that be?

This has made the last week fairly exciting. Why? For starters, I finally rounded up the gang to go see Star Trek Into Darkness. And it was just as mind blowingly awesome as everyone said. Spock putting the smackdown on Sherlock – I mean, Khan. Priceless. Sulu taking the captain’s chair. Scotty realizing just how much damage Kirk can do to his ship in a day. I could go on and on. And on.

But never fear Star Wars fans. I didn’t trick you into this post just to gush about Star Trek. The past several weekends have also happened to be Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I couldn’t actually make it this year, but I’ve been in years past, and it is something to behold. Stormtroopers patrol the park gates. You can meet awesome celebrity guests. And the Dark Side really does have cookies – and cupcakes. Deliciously evil cupcakes.

Living vicariously through all the pictures and videos on Facebook just wasn’t cutting it, so my sister and I whipped up an awesome office supply X-wing. Check it out:

If you want to make one of your very own, we found our inspiration here.

Now, please excuse me while I imagine R2-D2 piloting said X-wing to a robot speed dating mixer hosted by Lieutenant Commander Data.

Until next time, may the Force be with you as you boldly go where no one has gone before. 🙂
