I have not checked in for a while! Also I'm so used to Twitter that I totally forgot about comments here and I NEED TO CHECK THOSE OMG.

  • I saw a Star War and immediately fell in love with it even though I was never that much into either trilogy before and it ate my Tumblr for like two weeks because I was too lazy to check my dash for other things to post, sorry about that

  • The Emo Kylo Ren meme is like my favorite thing ever and I'm not even sorry


  • NO I MEAN THE STUFF I CAN AFFORD (omg Hot Toys though)

  • This is important

  • I even got my very own phone-controlled BB-8 for Christmas. I have a problem


  • still fighting the moth war, dammit

  • Medication update: Sprintec has absolutely wrecked my complexion over the last 4-5 months, so I am nursing it back to health with a minimalist regimen of Thayer's toner and CeraVe moisturizer

  • The Aromaleigh X-Files box/extras will be coming out in February, excite! (Shop is closed at the moment while Kristen moves.) Here's a closer look at Genome, plus quick looks at the other three eyeshadows. I'm pretty sure there will be additional non-box colors available as well--an "expansion pack"--but I haven't seen them yet

  • Mood is pretty good even considering seasonal depression; I'm just a completely useless lazy cuss, which I realized is because IT'S JANUARY

In other words, like pretty much everyone else, I have tons of stuff to do, but all I want to do is curl up with a book (new Alison Weir soon!) and hot chocolate.

I am seriously debating if I would get $200 worth of enjoyment out of a Hot Toys Falcon figurine. I kind of feel like I would. I mean look at him.

Someday, SOMEDAY, I will get a Hot Toys figure. But I want to make it count. It's gotta be one I REALLY, REALLY WANT, since they're so expensive. (The Marvel ones have been really good, yeah.)

Wow, those are NICE. Never heard of this company before!

I've never seen a Star Wars film!...

You know, I'm not entirely sure I've sat through the entire original trilogy beginning to end. Maybe with my sister one time? My mom had them on all the time when I was a kid, so they were just kind of background to me.

I also long for that Rey figure.

On the Anakin-never-used-Force-suggestion front maybe he just didn't want to. I mean we know it doesn't always work, the guy who had him and Mother as slaves was immune to it. But Force choking? Force choking works on everyone.

I genuinely think that poster is deluding themselves, but there you go. I was more in it for Boochie Flagrante.

If you don't mind a bit of Star Wars nerdery, when you think about both techniques and symbolic of their sides. I mean what is Force-suggestion but a way end conflict non-violently? And what is Force-choking but a way to terrorize and intimidate your opponent.

And Anakin seemed to favor brute force over subtlety.

Rey gives me LIFE! As does the Emo Kylo Ren thing. I am enjoying that character like a million times more because of that meme. I heart the internet.

You will appreciate this, I think: A Love Letter to Fangirls.

^^The above link has a header image that's spoiler-ish (mildly? I think?) if you haven't seen the movie yet, just FYI.

EDIT: And dude. Anakin totally used Force Suggestion. On Watto. When he comes back to Tattooine to find his mother, and first Watto's trying to talk about things, and then Anakin's just like, "Where. Is. My. Mother." And you *could* argue that he's getting extra-pissy at that point, but he also moves his hand just a little bit. So yeah--Force Suggestion. He's done it. More effectively than Qui-gon, I might add. That's my head-canon and I'm sticking to it.

Where is Rey? On eBay. There are figures of her in all the sizes, but unless you sit there on top the boxes while the store opens them, good luck. Hasbro ships the same number of each figure per case and Rey gets gobbled up and put on eBay for the most part. (I don't want one THAT badly. It's like trying to get some of the Lego sets.) Between the opening and Christmas my Meijer's had NOTHING left except that constable alien no one wants who got cut from the movie. Now you can find Finn again and some of Poe. (Poe Dameron body pillow, anyone?) I did get a First Order TIE Pilot this trip, at least.

I just want you to have a Rey figure to fight the Moth Wars.
