The Last Post

Well everybody, you might be wondering why I haven't posted in MONTHS and MONTHS!  Well, to be honest, nothing much has happened worth posting.  My life may actually be going back to normal.
Oh, but I must tell you.  Lea will eventually have her baby.  They have found out that it is a boy!  They have even intimated what they are going to name him.  Believe it or not, he will be named Anikin Solo!  Wow!  When they told me, I told Hon that the baby might even look like me.  Lucky kid!  But Hon didn't look too happy about the idea.  Anyways, that is the only big thing that has happened lately.
I know this may make some of you cry, but I am going to stop writing this blog.  I think my life may take to new avenues.  I might try my hand at gardening, I might write a book on how to be the most awesome jeddi in history, or I might just apply to be the chairman of the jeddi council.  Well...maybe I can't do any of those things well.  But I have decided it's time for my life to move on.  I have really appreciated my readers' interest in this blog and I hope you guys have enjoyed reading it.  Who knows?  Maybe another blog with this same style of writing might show up sometime soon.  But I am finished and have enjoyed it thoroughly.  Thank you for your interest.
Anikin Skywriter signing off.  The force be with you!

A Baby?!

A couple of things have happened in the last several weeks that I neglected to write posts.  I apologize about that...I have been super busy!
Anyway, an update from the Kid-fisto and Luminarah love story, Luminarah has finally fallen for Kid-fisto!  Let me explain: I suggested to him that we try a new strategy and buy Luminarah candy.  I suggested those new chocolate covered peanuts (I love those!) but he seemed strangely unenthused and didn't want to follow my suggestion.  He said that I had been enough trouble already.  Imagine that!  I do all I can to help him and doesn't appreciate it!  Anyway, we sent her the peanuts with a note that said from Kid-fisto and I let it be to see what happened.  The next day, I asked Kid and he said that they were dating now!  I said, "Must have been those peanuts!  The best way to win a girl's heart is candy!"
He said that actually, she was allergic to peanuts and at one whiff from the bag, had started sneezing and whatnot.  But she had felt so sorry for Kid-fisto, who being a simple guy, had fallen prey to the clutches of Anikin Skywriter and had come into mishap after mishap.  (Those were her words, not mine...)  It seems she did some investigating and found out from Ki Adi Mundee who was doing all this for Kid-fisto.  I don't think counseling is my thing...

Anyway, now onto the really good news!  Lea and Hon are having a BABY!  I shall have a grandson before long! well, a little longer than not very long...  But still, he's on his way!  I asked them what they would name him and they said that even if they knew, it would still be a secret until his birth.  (I hate it when people do that...)  I suggested that they name him a J name.  You know... PJ (Padmae Junior) or if it's a guy, AJ (Anikin Junior.)  I don't know if they liked those ideas very much though.

New Plan

Lately I have been counseling Kid-fisto to use the direct approach: buy Luminarah flowers.  But this time, I'm going to try the smooth approach, since that is far more sophisticated (and Luminarah is all tired of flowers with weird bits of poetry on them.)  The smooth approach is managing to get Luminarah in danger and having Kid-fisto save her!  I consider it completely brilliant!  So yesterday I went to the Sithe Superstore and I bought a couple of refurbished battle droids.  They cost me a fortune but maybe Kid-fisto won't be too hard on them and I can put them in my room or something.  Anyway, later on in the day, Luminarah was going on her daily walk in the park.  I was hiding in the bushes.  I turned on my droids and let them go.  I had made sure that Luminarah did not have a lightsaber on before I did so.  The droids began shooting their stun guns at her and here came Kid-fisto swinging on a rope like Tarzan.  He let go at the wrong moment and went flying into the midst of the droids.  While he was untangling himself (and getting stunned all over the place) Luminarah came in with her umbrella, wielding it like a lightsaber, and knocked those battle droids silly!  Kid-fisto went home a defeated (and numb) man.  I guess I can still recycle the remains of those droids...

Darth Sideous Gets Involved

He would, wouldn't he?  He somehow heard about Kid-fisto's love of Luminarah and we found out that he wants Kid to get married too.  He must have an amazing brain!  (Or that spy droid I saw yesterday may have something to do with it...)  Anyway, he has ulterior motives for his desire that Luminarah marry Kid-fisto.  Luminarah is a dangerous jeddi to the sithe and their droids.  I guess he figures that if she marries, she would become soppy.  I don't know how much truth there is in this, but regardless, he is now officially involved.
Darth Hideous, his uncle who owns that movie production company, came up with some disgusting poetry and they sent her some flowers under Kid-fisto's name.  The poetry went like this, "I think you are awesome, I hope our love will blossom."
Bleah.  They couldn't do better than that?  Anyway, that was another bouquet that went into the trash...

Everbody Loves Flowers!

Well, as you know, Kid-Fisto wants me...okay, LET me counsel him in his love affair with Luminarah.  Unfortunately, this is unrequited love.  Luminarah doesn't seem to notice that he exists!  Don't worry, the old Anikin charm will fall into place to help Kiddo!  I suggested that he buy her flowers.  He thought it was a good idea.  So yesterday, we sent her a bunch of daffodils with a note: "From a secret friend you don't know you got, Luminarah, I like you a lot!"
That bit of beautiful poetry was my doing.  Maybe I should become a poet!
Kid-Fisto wasn't too excited about it, but I told him that the poetry would just hit the spot!  I didn't know how much...I saw Luminarah throw them in the garbage later and mumble something like, "It must be a prank."  Women do react strangely to charm sometimes...

It Fits Me, I Must Say

Well, we're back!  That was an exciting vacation!  Already things are getting hectic back here!
As you know, Kid-Fisto has a crush on Luminarah.  Well, Ki-Adi-Mundee has decided that it is a hopeless case.  (One of the things Mr. Lucas goofed on in making the movies was that Jeddi are not forbidden to marry, they are just not encouraged to as it normally doesn't work out.  Jeddi tend to be workaholics.)  Ki-Adi-Mundee gave up Kid because Luminarah is a serious Jeddi with no intention of living the rest of her life with a man...especially if he is Kid-Fisto; the poor guy isn't overly bright.
Anyway, a person with my charm has this kinda thing down.  I have now taken the job of counseling him.  Wish me luck!

Busy Vacation so far

We got here late Tuesday morning.  I know, I know.  That means it took us a total of 18 hours to get to the beach.  A normally 3 hour trip (by speeder) we took 6 TIMES that amount because of Hon!
Okay...let me elaborate.  The whole crew of us guys started a little late because Obi-Won suggested that we go to Jeddi Mart before we started.  He said that he forgot his umbrella and the girls would look pretty silly if a hurricane came through while we were there and they didn't have umbrellas!
I didn't mention that umbrellas wouldn't be a very sturdy protection against hurricanes, so we humored him.  Then, we got started.  Everything was going dandy until we got to this fork in the road.  (Don't make a joke about picking it up...Master Quigone wore that one out...)
Hon had Wendoogled it and he said that we should take a left.  I said that that was impossible because my GPS said we needed to go right!  He was adamant, but I, being the driver, made the executive decision and went right.
Of course, we got lost.  I kept trying to follow my GPS but I think the poor deary was lost!  She had no idea where she was going!  (I think I may need to get that thing repaired!)  Anyway, I kept saying we should have taken a left and I kept retorting sarcastic things in return.  Then Master Obi-Won called out, "Dinner time!"
We went through the drive thru of a McDukoo's (don't tell Wendu) and continued to drive.
Hon asked if I would give him a try at driving.  I asked if he thought he knew more than a seasoned Jeddi.  He said, "Just gimme the wheel!"  So while we were switching places Chewy spilled his Diet Jawa Juice because of Hon climbing over him.  (Don't tell Wendu that either.  These are the Jeddi buses.  I'll have to get it steam cleaned.)
We drove and drove around and then we finally decided to go back to the fork and start by going left.
It looked like we were going the right way when Obi-Won noticed that we were passing the McDukoo's we had stopped at before.  He called out, "Breakfast time everybody!"  (I think the owner of that franchise was delighted at the influx of business!)  We ordered Chewy water this time.
We got back on the road and finally arrived at the beach at 10:00 AM.  I had to rest for a couple of days.  I thought vacations were supposed to be restful!  But thanks to Master Quigone's jokes about forks, my bad GPS, Hon for a navigator, Obi-Won with a constantly increasing appetite, and a Wookee with bad hands, I have had a very eventful "vacation" already!  The moral of the story is: never carpool with this many people...
