LOL Mary, hey, at least you know what an Ewok is 🙂 I grew up with the Star Wars movies, even saw the 3rd in a drive-in back in California! We had toys, bed sheets, all the good stuff. I’ve watched it off & on over the years, but I’m definitely not a major Star Wars freak. I spend too much energy already being an old movie freak 🙂 It has been so fun to share Star Wars with Rhett though. He got into it about 2 years ago, once he was old enough to really follow the movies. Now he loves it. I can’t wait to take him to see the next movie in December.
Carrie’s story is still worth a read if you ever get the chance. Obviously, the book isn’t about Star Wars, or even Carrie directly. But, I think her fictional character Suzanne is a part of herself. I really like Hollywood stories and am both horrified and fascinated by them. It’s like the movie Valley of the Dolls–I’ cringe when I watch it, but can’t turn it off, haha! Being an old movie lover, I obviously loved Debbie Reynolds and am also fascinated by Carrie and Debbie’s relationship. Which is what the Postcards movie is more based on. If you ever get a chance, check out the movie.
