Star Wars has been a passion of mine ever since I saw the (original) film in the movie theaters at the tender age of 2. HOLY CRAP, I’M OLD! Darth Vader scared the bejesus out of me (good thing I was still in diapers), but the idea of spaceships, distant planets, and countless alien races fascinated me. As I grew up, I read books about the Star Wars universe, learned about its characters, collected all the toys, ran around the house shouting “PEW! PEW!”, and grew to revere George Lucas as a god like being who could do no wrong.
Oh how things have changed. Now I read bill notices, learn about retirement plans, collect dirty clothes around the house, run around town taking my 3 little geeks to after school events, and consider George Lucas to be a complete lunatic.
But one thing has not changed and that is my love of all things Star Wars. I share my passion with my children, talk about it at the office, bring it up during inappropriate moments, and roll my eyes when people get Boba Fett’s name wrong (it’s “Bo-Bah”, people. Not “Buh-Buh”).
When I was passed the following infographic, I was giddy with delight and had to share it. It details how you can make your very own Millennium Falcon out of office supplies. Finally! All those years of making paper footballs are going to pay off! PEW! PEW!
