    Is Star Wars branding getting out of hand? YES!!

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I totally agree. When it comes to selling truck or Fiat cars has to do with Star War, I just don't get it. And by the way, I do own Disney stock.

    LOL I don't think I would be comfortable with Darth Vader in the shower with me.

    It is getting out hand, can you image the money that was shelled out by these companies?

    Do we really need a collection of Star Wars makeup and nail polish?

    We might, at our next quilting get-together.
    We can have a star wars fruit salad.
    Bandage up anyone who gets stuck with a pin.
    Duct tape the quilt police in the closet.
    Have soup and a bottle of water.
    Shave our legs before the quilt meeting.
    Wipe our chins after we slurp the soup.
    Wear crocs around the room.
    Have tea and coffee.
    And flip our burger with our lightsaber tongs.

    I am not going near any shower with Darth Vader hanging around.

    Never liked the first movie so never saw another one and I do like Science Fiction.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Just saw an ad for Star Wars soup last night! The little boy wanted 'R2D2 soup'. Very silly to me.

    Yes, Yes, Yes. We were having a discussion about this very thing last night at a gathering of friends. Two or three generations of people were there. We were the oldest (grandparents), Our son's family who encountered the first Star Wars and our grandkids who have enjoyed the toys and now the new Disney craze.Their family room is decorated with Star Wars posters and Lego kits of varied complexity. My feeling is that Disney is in it to make the maximum amount of money and they are going all out! But, the truth is, I don't have to buy any of it. I have one grandson who really liked it and I made him a Luke Skywalker costume and he loved it (this was about 17 years ago), Now I have a little grandson who would love a quilt and he shall have it!

    I fell asleep. Luckily my boys liked it. I had a nice nap in the theater. I used to fall asleep when Star Trek was on tv also. I was just so totally bored with both. I flunk every test on either subject. As long as the advertising doesn't affect the taste of anything I'm good. Darth VAder in my shower? Long as it doesn't affect the temp of how hot I like my shower.

    Then keep smiling because you should see some dividends from all the schlock being sold out there.

    However it is amazing to me that birthdays and occasions for several years for our now 40+ son consisted of Star Wars as well!
