You know what is truly evil? The hectic-ness of the holiday season. I truly enjoy Christmas and pay homage to the idea that “it’s the most wonderful time of the year,” but sometimes, like today for example – it can all feel too overwhelming. I love my Star Wars Christmas tree – I think it’s awesome and I want to share its out-of-this-world awesomeness with everyone…but putting together the posts I had outlined on Day 1 (or 8, depending how you’re counting) is the glob of icing on my proverbial stress-cake…and though it shames me to say this – I am not going to manage to write all my posts…at least, not as I had originally planned.
Yesterday I only managed to briefly introduce 3 of the heroes that grace my tree (sorry, I know you were all waiting for bikini Leia). I had planned to present ALL of them, from the aforementioned Her Royal Hotness with Jabba-choking chain in hand to a little green Yoda standing by a swamp tree. Today my slacking gets even worse – I’m going to really wimp out and just post one villain…
So, sorry – just 1 villain is all you’re gettin’. I suppose if there were hundreds (ok, fine 1 or 2) comments gushing about the wonder of a Star Wars Christmas then perhaps I would feel more pressured (obligated?) to stick to my initial intentions. If a quiet lurker who has been enjoying the ride somewhere out there in a galaxy far far away is reading this…well, I apologize. Here’s my band-aid solution: there are many Christmas seasons to come – so instead of introducing my entire collection this year. I will come back December after December and add a bit more to each day’s post. I can handle that much (I think).
And since so much of the holidays are about anticipation – what beats waiting an entire year to see what I will choose to showcase next?
So there, I release myself from the guilt of an obligation left unfulfilled.
Now if I could only stop feeling bad about slacking on this year’s Christmas cards.
Come back tomorrow when I will (maybe…) post a bit about the sidekicks of the series.
R-2 fans, this one will be for you.
