Star Wars Challenge - Introduction


You may have heard of the 30-day Photo Challenge, right?  We changed it up a bit, and we, a group of friends and I, are attempting our own version.  Interesting and fun it is!  But, I just heard of a new challenge specifically for Star Wars geeks - the 30-Day Star Wars Challenge.  Intriguing, to be sure!

I'm sure I cannot live up to the challenge of a daily post, but I would be game for doing a weekly Star Wars challenge.  Further, you could do this with any geekdom you are into; Dr. Who, Buffy, Star Trek, Narnia...really anything would fit with a little tweaking.  It does help that Star Wars has so much to draw from, I have to say.

I did consider creating a new blog similar to the blog I created for the Exposure Challenge, but since this blog is loosely Star Wars-themed, I decided to keep it here.  [And, for my readers that don't enjoy Star Wars, please accept my humble apologies.  My fascination with the galaxy far, far away is innocent and just for fun.]

Here are the topics for the weekly posts, in case you would like to participate.  Some are posting their responses to the daily challenge on Facebook...you may want to do the same (just make sure you let me know - I don't want to miss it!).

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. Bu…
