The Force is Strong with This One

I like Star Wars.

This is a bit of an understatement, like saying my cats like catnip.

I completely avoided everything about The Force Awakens until I saw it. I didn’t want to get super excited about something and have to wait to watch it.

Organized might be too generous of a word, however

I took the whole day off of work yesterday (because I’d been bitching for weeks that I never get to take days off. Ahh, the joys of owning your own business) and got it done, along with a few other things like cook dinner for my gaming group.
