a week of star wars

song in my head: darth vader's march from star wars

a week of Star Wars
a blog party by jo march of scraps and näna of by the way

So we've decided to call May an unofficial Star Wars month because of the major Star Wars "anniversaries" that take place , as well as Star Wars Day (May 4th). And, since we actually had to time to *plan* ahead of time this year, we're throwing a Star Wars party this week! Boo-yah!

Our itinerary is as follows:

May 19th (which is today :D) - the party begins! We've got a handful (or two) of questions for you to have fun with - answer them on your blog and link up!

May 21st - post a profile of your favorite Star Wars character. If you need help thinking about what to say, just ask yourself questions like: How does this character change during the course of the films? How does this character react to stress/fear/rescue, etc.? What type of personality does this character have?
note: this event is now active: click HERE to join!

May 23rd - We'll be posting a rather in-depth look at the value of Star Wars on this day - feel free to post up something similar on your own. Think about ways that the thoughts and belief ideas expressed in Star Wars apply to everyday life and see if you can articulate them :) (I know...who wants to think that hard anyway? :P)

May 24th - Star Wars video day! This is going to be a riot....get ready for some laughs. :D

May 25th - It's the "grand finale" day (affectionately titled "The Return of the Jedi") and we'll keep our plans a surprise :D

So, yeah. Lots to do, lots of fun to have! There will be Linky up for each mini-event so you can participate too! You can participate via Blogger, Twitter, Facebook or even in the comments if you so desire. The more the merrier!!!

Note: the Linkys will be open all week - so don't feel pressured to participate in the mini-events *exactly* on the day that they are scheduled :)


Ready? We're kicking off the party with a Q&A session....

{1} Which Star Wars character do you think you're most like?

{2} Supposing you could really, truly visit the Star Wars universe over summer vacation - where would you to go?

{3} Lightsaber or blaster? 

{4} Favorite quote(s):

{5} What is one of your favorite memories associated with Star Wars?

{6} Do you remember the first time you saw a SW movie?

{7} Have you ever used the Force? 

{8} Do you have a favorite episode?

{9} Dress-up time! Which characters wardrobe do you like the best?

{10} If you ask any of the cast members from Star Wars *ONE* question, who would you ask and what would you ask them?

Off we go!!!! Answer the questions on your blog, take one of the buttons, then link up below:

May the Force be with you!

  1. I'm afraid I won't be able to take part in this event, being that I know virtually nothing about Star Wars (other than what you've posted before, of course). :( Well, 'twill be fun to watch the event from the sidelines!

    Love ya, dear! (And yes, I *will* be replying to your email... soon. :)

  2. Ditto, Miss Elizabeth Rose. ;) I've watched episodes IV, V, and the first part of VI, but I still don't know that much about it. I don't know many characters and stuff...and I don't even get the whole story line. :P

    But...this sounds like lots of fun for all the Star Wars lovers. ;)

    btw, I had a question. Who wrote this post: you or Nana? Because it's the same on both blogs...I was just wondering who originally wrote it...:D


  3. Wow, the Star Wars producers really liked May, didn't they? ;) I'm with Elizabeth Rose, though... I'm hoping to watch Star Wars soon, but as of yet I haven't. So I really don't know anything about it! Have fun, though! <3

  4. {Vivi} - We both wrote it! *wink*
