  1. I’m with Jami, that Vader pic is fantastic, as are the firefly undies. p.s. If you’re an “undies” fan, you would wallow in my Undie Chronicles.

    So, (a) THANK YOU for the blog love – I’m glad you enjoyed the post. And (b) What a fantastic title to be sharing my paragraph with. I’ve got to go check that out. I have romantic elements, and evidently there are five things I need to know about the va-jj!

  2. Really great posts here – I’m so flattered you included mine, mostly because it helped me find your awesome blog! I’ll have to start following you – so many things here appeal to me. 🙂

  3. Okay, I love the Darth Vader pic. Did you see the one someone posted of him and Luke Skywalker that was captioned, “Take your son to work day”? I almost fell out of my chair…

    Thanks for the shout-out, Angela. Totally made my day. 🙂 The other posts look really interesting. I will have to check them out later today.
