Yep, that’s right, a whole fun-filled day of Star Wars! I decided it was high time that I saw the entirely saga back-to-back, so we did last Saturday! Adam had bought me The Star Wars Cookbook: Wookiee Cookies and Other Galactic Recipes, in anticipation of us doing a film marathon… we planned our meals for the day around this book.
We started at around 8am and watched Phantom Menace in bed, and not even Jar Jar Binks could put a dampener on my determination to watch all 6 films in a row, no sir-ee. We then got up, did a little bit of tidying around the house (Adam went out for bread for our brunch, too) and set up the second film. We paused it half way to enjoy some Tattouine Twin Sun Eggs, except, ours didn’t turn out like the photo… we had one sun eggs, and they didn’t cook very well.. Alas! it was only for fun :)
We were getting into our stride, the 3rd film went quickly & we set about doing a couple more chores in between. We got a phone call from my Dad just as I was making our Wookie Cookies, my Mum had somehow managed to get stuck in Tesco’s carpark (I had a bad feeling about this*, it was something to do with the automatic gears on their car getting jammed) so we had to drive my Dad over there to rescue her. When we got there she’d already fixed it! Typical.
After out brief outing we got back and I finished off the cookies and we started on ‘A New Hope’. Washed it down with some wookiee cookies, of course.
Yeah, they really were as good as they look. So, so amazing. I think we had about 5 each haha! oopsie. ‘A New Hope’ flew by, it’s such an easy film to watch.. infact, all the Star Wars films are! I lost count of the number of Wookiee impressions I did… UAARRRGNNNHHH
Adam was tempted to have us watch his VHS copies of the un-digitally-remastered versions, but we don’t even own a VHS machine anymore. I kinda liked the remastered versions though, they tie in really well with the new films. Maybe I just made a few hardcore fans have a seizure, sorry.
Whilst we watched Empire we enjoyed some ‘Greedo’s Burritos’ & a couple more Wookiee Cookies, a-hem. We also sipped some of Adam’s home made ginger & whiskey mead.
We started watching the final film at 10pm, so we’d done pretty well! We were both falling asleep towards the end, watching films all day is TIRING. I’m not entirely sure whether I saw the Emperors demise! Anyway, it was fun :) Next up, Lords of the Rings????!
*an intentional pun, if you get it, you get it. If not, do a star wars marathon of your own!
