STEEEERIKE!!! (No, Really.)

I ACTUALLY got a strike in our bowling class last night!!!  Everybody is elated with me.  I have been calling all my fellow Jeddi knights and I intend to have a celebratory dinner tonight with Master Obi-Won, Wedgie, and Luke.  We will probably go out to the Dark Side Diner (no...I'm not disloyal...they just have better burgers than the Lightsaber Cafe!)  Padmae is so happy for me!  See3P0 will probably make me a cake!  Yes...all is well with Anikin Skywriter.  That being said, I don't think I'll ruin it by mentioning that I bowled this infamous strike in the WRONG LANE...
Oh and by the bye, I gave my blueprints to Master Wendu yesterday...  He said he'd have to think about them.

Almost Done

Tomorrow - wait, Monday I am putting the finishing touches on my Amazingly Fantastic Creative Jeddi Starfighter blueprints. I hope these will help me obtain a raise. We'll see what the crabby Jeddi in charge of overseeing the Jeddi Starfighter production (Master Wendu) likes. (But I don't know if he will be a huge fan of my flame job. Maybe I should just paint it purple on the picture. That might work!)

I Was Doomed!

That was RUUUUDE!!!  I had U R Doomed Pest Control over this morning to finish the job of eradicating all the pests in our household.  When he left, the Super Duper Battle Droid left me a bill and said, "I hope you enjoyed our service.  Please check us out on the web at greviouslyannoying.com."
That seemed like a strange website address for a pest control named U R Doomed.  Anyway, I said I might check it out.
Then when he drove off in his ship, I went into my office to finish some blueprints for an Awesomely Fantastic Creative Jeddi Starfighter when I noticed something was rather wrong.  The blueprints were gone!!!  You must understand!  If I finish these blueprints, I stand I huge chance of getting a raise at the Jeddi Temple.  Needless to say, I was worried.  I called Luke on his cell phone (he's commuting to the space academy) and asked him if he knew where they were.  He said no (the helpful child...).  So my next assumption was that U R Doomed Pest Control had accidentally sucked them up with his bugvac (those things are pretty powerful).  So I tracked him down and made him give them back.  Strangely enough, he didn't have to open up his bugvac to get them.  They were sitting in his lap!  However, he didn't give them over without grumbling, "General Grevious is going to kill me!  I was supposed to get those plans to him without delay and..."
And I said, "HOOOOLD on!!!  You work for Grevious?"
"Yes," he said, "Can't you read my uniform?"
It said "U R Doomed Pest Control Employee: Dave."  Finally, I understood.  I told the Super Duper Battle Droid named Dave, "I am so disappointed with your business!  You know why?  It's because of your terrible customer service!"  And then I stalked off to my ship with the blueprints safely under my armpit.
I hope that stung.
Anyway, we got rid of all the pests in our house, at least, most of them...

I'm a Bowling Pro...

No...not really. It's See3P0 who's the really good one! Last night, I couldn't get anything but gutter balls and the occasional "Good Try..." It's embarrassing. Especially when there are all these kids 14 years old and younger bowling like pros! I would quit, but I will continue to do this out of love for See3 (he'd better appreciate it!!! >:-| )

U R Doomed. Thank Heavens!

Well, U R Doomed Pest Control came at 10 am this morning.  The employee that showed up happened to be Super Duper Battle Droid.  (Those guys look good in ties!)  Needless to say, I was a little taken aback.  I normally don't have Super Duper Battle Droids visit me as a regular thing.  I assumed that he must have lost his job as a Super Duper Battle Droid for Count Dukoo and had gotten hired as a pest control guy.  I asked him why he got fired and he kind of looked at me like I was some kind of a nut.  Anyway, I won't complain about the type of pest cleaner I get so long as our house gets rid of its pests!  (I wonder if he'd be willing to take R2-De2?)

Pest Control Please!

Alright, Saturday night and last night went by without any fiascos.  But I am not taking any chances.  I looked through the phonebook this morning and found some pest control services.  Not knowing which to choose I called Master Obi-Won (since he's a bachelor and tends to leave his food in the fridge long after it's gotten old) since he would probably have experience with bugs.  He said he hadn't had any bug problems in a while but on his way to the Jeddi temple one morning he saw a billboard for "U R Doomed Pest Control."  He suggested them because, if they had enough money for a billboard they had to be good.  I thought he was right.  So I called U R Doomed and they said that their next opening would be tomorrow at 10:00 AM.  I said that was fine.  But inside I was (and still am) a raging turmoil.  What if we have another scorpion or rat or...TARAAAANTULA???  Anyway, I'll spray myself up and down with "Off" before I go to bed.

Tarantulas???  Last night I woke up, yet again, to Padmae screaming.  This time, it was a more alarming cry.  She yelled "AAAAAANIKIN!!!  YOU HAVE A TARAAAANTULA ON YOUR FOREHEAD!!!"  This time, however, I woke up on the first call (the word "taraaaantula" tends to do that to me.)  I got up and was going to go get some spider killer when I met Luke in the hall.  He had apparently heard Padmae and had come to the rescue with his infamous net.  He said, "Let me get that for ya!" and walloped me on the cranium again!  I have another headache.  I just don't know how much more of this I can stand.  We really have a pest problem.  I talked to Padmae about it today, and she said that I could look in the phonebook on Monday to look for pest control companies (tomorrow is a day of rest for everyone.  Yes!  Even pest control guys...)  I just hope we don't have any scorpions, rats, taraaaantulas or anything else like them tonight or tomorrow night.  I don't know how much more of this I can take.  My migraine is paining me...  I think I'll go to bed now.

This just keeps getting worse!

Great! Yes, we had Padmae, Miss "Operatic Wannabe", visit us again last night. But this time Padmae yelled, "ANIKIN!!! YOU HAVE A RAT ON YOUR NOSE!" I don't hate rats overly much, but when one decides to practice his ballet on the tip of my nose, I start getting a little ticked. Thankfully, we didn't go through the whole ordeal that I had to the night before because Luke came in and slapped a net over my face before I could do anything else. He caught the rat, but I have another migrane (Luke has quite an arm!). Pass the Tylenols, please...

Nerve-racking to be sure.

Yikes!  Last night I woke up to the sound of screaming in the vicinity of my left ear.  The screaming was something like "ANIKIN!", this is all in capitals to give you an idea of how loud it was, "ANIKIN!!!  YOU HAVE A SCORPION ON YOUR FOREHEAD!!!"  It would have helped me be a little more calm when I woke up if Padmae had only yelled it once.  But as it is, she had to yell it 6 times (though this was probably to help me wake up...)  After her several screams, I woke up and, having woken up in a shock, didn't think straight.  I'm still not thinking straight because I figured (not too brightly since it was 3 in the morning) that the best way to get rid of a scorpion would be to jump out of bed and slam the forefront of my cranium against the nearest wall.  This worked fine.  Missed the scorpion, but I scared him so much that he sort of staggered out of the room and I believe made his way in the direction of the nearest shock therapist.  I might need one of those guys though, I still have a headache...

Oh wait, sorry, that's in baseball.  What I should have said was GUTTER BALL!  At least for me...  Last night was See3P0's and my first bowling class.  We are the worst in the class.  At least I am.  To be honest, for all my talk about See3P0's stiff joints, he's better at bowling than I am!  He got a 140 last night.  All I got were 8 gutter balls and a spare (which is when you get half of your pins on your first shot for that turn, and then get the rest of them on your next shot.)
My only qualm about having this class is I come home late when Luke is already in bed.  Tired.  I miss all his stories about college and his new Space Ship Bumper Sticker lab.  (Wonder what that's all about...)  I didn't know that that was a necessary course for learning how to be a pilot!

Bowling?  See3P0's mechanic has prescribed some bowling therapy for See3P0 to (and I quote) "loosen up his joints"...
YEAH RIGHT!!!  See3P0 has never HAD loose joints.  Even in his earlier years...
(the days that he did the acting for Star Warz) he was rather stiff jointed.  But, doctor's orders...  We have to obey that mechanic.  (I wonder if the apple thing holds true for droids, I don't think I'll have a chance to try it, 'cause See3 has never been a huge fan of apples anyway.)
Anyhoo, I have finished my bungee jumping class.  So I now have more time to do this (and take ANOTHER CLASS...sheesh!)

Sorry, been busy...

Sorry I haven't written a post in a week or so... I have been having to take See3P0 to the mechanic. He has gotten the terrible disease protocol droids get when they get old: Arthdroidis. And his joints are getting rusty on top of it all! The mechanic prescribed oil, but I don't think it's working. I hate it when people...erm...droids get old! I don't want to lose See3!!!

The Movies

Well, Master Obi-Won and I are going out for another night at the movies.  This time, we're going to see an old film where everybody drives around in cars and they haven't even invented spaceships.  Eh, I like B-Rated movies...somewhat...
