Reblogging this because I still want it SO BADLY.
This totally reminds me of one of my all-time favorite Princess Leia quotes from the book The Courtship of Princess Leia**: "I like some things about you. I like the way your pants fit."
(** One of my favorite books in the Expanded Universe, though, real talk, nothing tops Shadows of the Empire.)
Kid, I’ve flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I’ve seen a lot of strange stuff, but I’ve never seen anything to make me believe there’s one all-powerful Force controlling everything.

Patton Oswalt (fellow W&M alum*!) is guest-starring on Parks & Rec and gives a magnificent (improvised!) Star Wars VII-inspired filibuster rant.
*Speaking of this, I made the hilarious discovery that he’s in Bruce Hornsby’s video for “The Valley Road” which was filmed in the ‘Burg. He’s the one clapping and duckwalking at 4:08.
In honor of Dad, I was going to post some pictures of his Star Wars collection (I inherited his iPad and, omg, you would not believe how organized he was in terms of his lists and photo documentation), but I suddenly remember that this video existed! Some of my brother’s college friends decided to film themselves driving from Orange, CA to Orange, FL and stopped at my family’s house for the night. One of my dad’s absolute FAVORITE things in the world was to give people tours of his collection and he could always take people poking a little fun at his expense. Jump ahead to 3:00 or so in the video.
P.S. His eBay handle was SW_Dan55 (or somesuch), totally missing the fact most people would think he meant “Single White Dan,” but that’s the source of our “Star Wars Dan” nickname.
P.P.S. One of the hardest things about his passing has been deciding what to do with his beloved collection. There are pieces I know we’ll keep because he loved them or we loved them, but we’re still working out what will happen to the rest of it.
