And I'd give up forever to touch you

Laundry day. Oh joy of joys and clean socks. I head to work in two hours, with plan on being there for 12. We're getting ready for inventory, and there is nothing that I like working on more actually.... except for the hours. I already work a standard 50 week, I'm pretty certain we need to hire someone to replace the three (count 'em, three) people we've lost in the last two weeks.

Fat chance.

So they are releasing a version of Star Wars on DVD that includes both the most up to date digitally remastered version, and the original theatrical releases of the original trilogy. This has me extremely excited. I've put off and put off and put off buying myself a copy of Star Wars, though why, I couldn't say (Being a sci-fi obsession, you'd think I'd own it. Technically, I do, but it's on VHS, and in NY to boot). See the title crawl to Star Wars before it was known as Episode IV; see the pioneering, if dated, motion control model work on the attack on the Death Star; groove to Lapti Nek or the Ewok Celebration song like you did when you were a kid; and yes, see Han Solo shoot first.

So I'm in. It's only available for a few months, September to December. Knowing Lucas though, they'll do something t stretch it and get some more money from it, but hell, a copy of that will be owned by me. It's essentially what I've been waiting for, I just didn't know it.

So may the Force be with you.... and off I go.
