I don’t know what else to tell you guys other than that these weirdos are the Imperial Advisors. They are also known as Imperial Dignataries, Imperial Courtiers, Imperial Ruling Council, and Imperial Tea Partyers. Unlike Vader, they love drinking hot tea. Yeah, before coming to America I didn’t even know tea was served cold (iced). There was just one type of tea, and cold tea was to be thrown out. Now I drink iced tea whenever it’s an option, though I still manage at least one hot tea per day. I used to do Earl Gray, nothing fancy. Now I prefer Lipton. So long as I have some good dunkable biscuits (cookies ideal for dunking), I’m set. So, when you see the Emperor and his posse having a tea party, I’m really just showing you a slice of my home life with my imaginary friends.
Leanne and I would like to invite those of you who can make it, to join us at the American Film Institute in Silver Spring, Maryland for a screening of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Yes, it’s the Special Edition, the only version that the distributor will allow to be screened, but it’s still as close as you can get to seeing the original film with an enthusiastic crowd on the big screen. We will be there for the Saturday night screening at 8 pm. Get there a little early so you can get photos with the 501st Legion and Rebel Legion in full Star Wars Episode IV costumes! It will be a LOT of fun. Last year’s Return of the Jedi screening was great, and I guarantee enthusiasm for the film that started it all will be even more electric! Click here.
