Ashley

Do you have a celebrity twin? Apparently, I do.

All my life, perfect strangers have commented that I remind them of someone. I can't imagine that this does not happen to others, too; it's just that it happens to me frequently. Some of them just can't seem to put their finger on who, and others are quick to call out a name. When I was younger, folks said I looked like Olivia Newton-John.

Within the last few years, it's been a lovely young woman named Ashley Judd. Since I'd never heard of her, I googled her. Yeah...I can see some resemblance, to be sure.


I obviously need to tossle my hair more and get a make up artist, eh?

I take it as a compliment, really. The Ashley comments seem to be getting more and more frequent, sometimes even twice in one day. Strange. I wonder if Ms. Judd ever gets asked if she knows she looks like a Jedi named Hendel D'bu...

I like this shot of her. I'm rather partial to turtlenecks...


If I was to pick a celeb to resemble, I've always wanted to look like Michelle Pheiffer. *shrug*

Wow, Ashley does resemble you! When I was just out of college (over 20 years ago, gasp!) I was told I resmebled "the Terminator Lady" and "the Beauty and the Beast (TV show) Lady". I finally figured out it was the same actress, Linda Hamilton. I do not have the great pictures you do to back that up.

Well, there's at least one more face to add to your list. Someone looking at my trip pics told me you looked like an actress. Remember?

I agree with your buddy about your lovely smile. ;-)

What serendipity! My twin is evil and got me in trouble more than once in high school.

Our History with Saber Forge

UPDATE, April 19, 2012: we purchased new sabers from Ultra Saber LLC. To see a review, go HERE.

Saber Forge's Ambassador saber hilt
This post is to document and record the history of our experience with a company called Saber Forge. I would like this information to serve as information and perhaps a warning to all that are interested in purchasing a machined lightsaber, and/or are considering Saber Forge.

Saber Forge makes and sells lightsabers to be used as props with Star Wars costumes. When we started looking to purchase lightsabers that had the ability to light, Lisa posted for information on the Rebel Legion website. She was contacted by Mr. Phil Isherwood, owner of SaberForge.

It is most unfortunate that we have had problems with the sabers. I love the hilt, to be honest, and felt that we got what we paid for; however, the lingering problems and now the complete lack of customer service is most troubling.

Just Throwin' It Around

I have a friend who just got engaged to be married. As he was detailing the way he proposed to his beloved, something he said caught my attention. In the course of his adult life, dating and living, he had promised himself that he would only use the actual word love towards the one who he was going to marry. He further explained that it was his thought that people 'throw the word love around carelessly' and that it had a special meaning, one meaning. For him, it was only to be used in speaking to his soon-to-be wife.

I can see his point, especially when thinking about dating. I know it happens, all too often, that relationships proceed a little too quickly and emotions peak prompting hasty pronouncements of love and devotion only to be rescinded down the line, after the passion has worn off. Careful and introspective we must be when experiencing and building a new relationship that we don't bite off more than we can chew, so to speak. I agree with my engaged friend - w…

Confession

I am a maker and collecter of Artist Trading Cards. In my world, we call them "Letterboxer Trading Cards", because they are made by letterboxers and they must have a hand-carved stamp featured on the card. I have made hundreds, even thousands of these cards, and enjoy the hobby immensely (samples shown are a few of my cards). I also collect them from other artists and letterboxers, and have a collection numbering (also) in the thousands.



So, here's the confession: I HATE LOGGING THEM! Yes, that's right, I said 'hate'. I know, that's pretty strong, but it is the only way I can adequately describe the feeling of dread that comes over me the second after I enjoy receiving them in the mail. If I were a disciplined person, I would immediately make my way to the computer, sign into to my favorite letterboxing site and let these wonderful friends know how much I love their efforts, thus easing their minds that their hard work arrived safe and sound in my care.
