Cell Geeks & The Half-Blood Star Wars Fan

I've got to admit that I'm in love with the Apple Store.

I firmly believe that every geek needs to visit one at least once in their lifetime. It's akin to Mecca for Muslims.

The Geek Mecca.

So of course a few weeks ago when my brother-in-law was in town I took him. And will take my own brothers the next time either of them come up for a visit.

And of course, when my boys get a bit older, I'll take them. After all, they are growing up to be fine geeks. Why just yesterday morning, the little one comes waltzing into the bedroom at 6 in the morning holding the Star Wars Episode III DVD case, demanding to be allowed to watch it.

While this was going on, his elder brother was in his room, playing a Star Wars video game.

And this morning, my wife showed me the toy that she found in our bed (apparently left there by our youngest). Yes, that is Ahsoka Tano.

My boys are adorable.

And my Beloved Wife is exasperated.

Though, if she's truly honest with herself, she loves it as much as I do.

All that said, I did hear some very interesting news regarding Stephen King's novel Cell. After the failure of a movie, there's discussion of turning it into a 4 hour (or thereabouts) TV Mini-Series.

Which is all sorts of WIN if you ask me.

Unfortunately, I've yet to actually make it to see the new Harry Potter--a sore point for me and the Beloved Wife, as we have failed (repeatedly) to find someone to watch over the children while we attend a 2+ hour movie. Especially, since the theater has poor show times (either at 8, which is right at bedtime, or at 10 which is too late for the Beloved Wife).

Alas, I'm sure we'll figure out a way to see it somehow. Even if it is that we must attend two separate showings...
