May the Farce Be With You.

So in That Girl fashion, I made a bet with some of my friends, Matt and Josh.

They found it absolutely appalling that I had never seen the Star Wars Trilogy.

Let's face it, Bloggerotsky. I have better things to do.

Like shopping.
or watching GOOD movies.

Which is exactly what I told them.

This could not be, they said. What will it take to get you to watch them?

Mua hah hah hah ha.

So over the past three months, I have picked three films for them to watch. Three GOOD films. Three lovely films. Three films that are interesting.

Pride and Prejudice
Hope Floats
PS I Love You

During the course of viewing these films with my dear friends, they proceeded to make fun of the movies. Such as Bernice in the film Hope Floats.

So Bernice had big glasses.

Okay, I believe Josh and Matt used the term SATELLITES and ANT KILLERS.

hey, not everybody can look like Giselle Bundchen. And they can't say they didn't have any awkward years.

So last night I had to keep up my end of the bargain. I started with Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

. (literally.)

Any ideas how to make it through V and VI without falling asleep? Because regardless of their disrespect of my girl Bernice, they will pause the film until I wake up and anytime I look bored or stare off into space (pun intended), they pause the film and say, "What just happened, Lauren?"

Like I would know even if I was paying attention.

I've actually seen the Star Wars movies...the last three (the old ones), not the new ones. What I can't endure are the Lord of the Rings movies! Ugh!

Star Wars isn't bad. As long as someone explains the confusing stuff to you. And the movies you picked out are quite awesome.
