Star Wars Weekend~

Been hanging out, doing very little, watching some of the old Star Wars movies on Spike. Despite the annoying commercials, it's been fun. The originals still hold up, although they don't have Ewan as Obi-Wan or Liam as Qui-Gon or Hayden as Anakin . . . maybe that's why I spent more time on the newer trilogy, hehe.

I'm still enjoying The Walking Dead, but it's not nearly as compelling. I guess we can't expect every episode to have the same intensity as the first two. Whew. But it's easy to get annoyed at the human drama. We need these characters to pull together . . . and I need fewer looong, lingering closeups of people saying goodbye to their soon-to-be-zombie loved ones.

I got three votes for and one against this Challenge in my Last Author Standing community. This was another Jacob-centric story, which has turned out to be my favorite subject matter, surprisingly enough. It's hard to believe I've now been participating for more than three months, and there's really no end in sight. I'd say there are at least two or three Challenges to go (I always want to call them Rounds, as opposed to Challenges). I pretty much know the top writers by now, even recognizing their work. I could make a prediction on who's going to win, but I won't.

I hope all my American friends had a fabulous Thanksgiving, and I hope everyone else is staying warm and healthy. I have to say I'm looking forward to the end of 2010. Overall it's been a pretty sucky year.

Hey...what voting? I wanna vote! Anything regarding Jacob is a plus! He's darling!

I loved the newer Star Wars too - Hayden is so wickedly hot. Hee-hee!

*Imperial March music...YES!

I'll send you the link next time so you can vote. It's all anonymous, so it's perfectly fair. They always need folks to vote, but voting isn't just choosing your fave. You have to choose both the best and worst written stories and give good reasons. It's kinda cool, because the feedback ends up getting sent to the authors, all anonymously. The moderator does a TON of work in these communities.

In fact, you should participate in the next round! It will probably end up being early next year when it starts--maybe February.

Yeah, I always wanted Darth Vader to turn out to be hot. One of my favorite things Lucas did is insert Hayden's Anakin at the end of Return of the Jedi.
