The Other Great Saga

Over the course of this blogs lifetime you will be placed behind the eyes of a Jedi Master. This Jedi Master lives in Hollywood and although has seen many odd things in the Universe none compare to the bantha-fodder I see here. Despite being a member of the Jedi Order, I have been known to delve in the Dark Arts from time to time. See how I use my Jedi powers to make my life, just a wamprat more interesting.

Late Friday night was the international release of the final book in The Other Great Saga, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Its basically how a young padawan grows up to kill the evil murderer of his parents. Sound familiar to anybody? If you dont believe me just look at this. Maybe thats why I like it so much. Of course it doesnt hurt that the original score to the movies was done by John Williams.

So while at the party to await the relase of this final book this Jedi Master ran into his comedian friend who when asked what on Earth he was doing there he replied "Hey man, I'm a nerf-herder!" Its all so clear now. As I proceded to make my way to the long line full of padawan aged youth I ran into another friend whom this Jedi has had the "Padmes" for the last couple of years. Yes I know its not the Jedi way but unfortunatly she is not week minded and I actually have to work at getting into her pants. She tells me that she might have to wait 3 hours to get her copy and is surprised to see I have a front of the line pass. I offer to purchase an extra copy for her and offer dinner afterwards, unfortunately galactic regulations stipulate one book per customer.

After standing in line for over an hour where I ran into two other people I know from the local Jedi Council, I made it to the front of the line and purchased two books. Upon finding her location via communicator I showed her the second copy I purchased and said she should meet me at an undisclosed location for dinner.

"No freakin' way! How'd you do that?"
"Jedi Mind trick baby. Lets go."
