MY APOLOGIES IN ADVANCE

It will come as no surprise to anyone that I am a HUGE Star Wars fan.

The Force Awakens was a breath of life into a fandom that has never truly died.
Since 1977 Star Wars has been a part of me. Han Solo was always my hero. Princess Leia was my heroine who showed me that I didn’t actually need a man to stand up for myself.

The fandom may have gone quiet for a few years and the prequels (although not bad) didn’t quite hit the mark but┬áChristmas 2015 was the turning point.
Fandom got a slap in the face, was told to wake up and smell the roses. Star Wars was back and is set to be an even bigger part of our lives for the foreseable future.

We all had an Awakening. For me, in more ways than one.

With the Force Awakens came an obsession that has only gone from strength to strength over the last year and a half.
Kylo Ren…… or more precisely….. Adam Driver.

The more I found out about him, the more I watched him in things, the more I fell in love with him.
He’s amazing. There simply is no other word for him.


Such a humble and giving man and I continue to love him from the ears that are fighting for dominance on his head right down to his big feet!

The reason for this post is to apologise in advance for the spewing forth of everything Adam related over the next few months.

This past weekend saw the release of the teaser trailer for The Last Jedi that is due this December.
We finally got a glimpse of what Kylo’s scar is going to look like.

The Kylo snippets from the teaser were so tantalisingly quick it was frustrating.

So it’s now official, It’s out of the starting gate and all the hype leading up to the actual movie has officially started. There will be one, if not two more full trailers coming over the next few months followed by the press tours which mean a lot of new photos and interviews to enjoy!!

However……

Adam also has another film due around the end of August.
Logan Lucky with Daniel Craig. In which, two brothers played by Adam Driver and Channing Tatum, attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina.

Adam Driver, Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig, Sebastian Stan and even Domhnall Gleeson’s little brother Brian Gleeson… all in one movie.

I’m hoping a trailer will be dropping for this one very soon!!
Along with interviews and press tour and photos.

So my apologies (although I’m not actually sorry) are for not shutting up about Adam for the foreseable future.
I will be posting interview snippets and every photo I can lay my hands on alongside trailers and film clips.

BRING…. IT…. ON!!!

And just so I can hopefully convert some of you to the god that is Adam, I also want to leave this here for you to look at.
This…..
This is what makes adam so special.
Forget Star Wars.
This is Adam’s first love. His charity, Arts in the Armed Forces.
His short lived experience as a Marine was their loss but our gain!!

 

DONE!

I made it!
7 x 12.5 hour shifts on my feet over 9 days!
I’m actually feeling quite good today, even though I had to get up early to take Dharma into the walk in centre.

Looks like she’s developed a spot of excema in her scalp.
I wanted it checked before our hair appointment later this morning to make sure it wasn’t anything ‘unwelcome’. I was also worried about the possibility of Psoriasis.
Her dad has it and it developed into Psoriatic arthritis which is the last thing she needs to deal with now. She has enough to worry about with her hyper mobility and IBS.

Anyway, we’re now back home and it’s only 9am.
The plan for today is to take Marjorie for her hair appointment at 10:15. She’s getting some colour done so we’re going to leave her there to get some shopping done before we go back for our appointment for cuts and blow dries.
A bit of pampering.

Then I plan on completely chilling but I’m not sure what I’m in the mood for.
Reading my Star Wars novel or getting stuck into some fan fiction is one option.
I would really like to start writing another of my own pieces but coming up with a story idea is something I’m completely crap at!!

I’ve got a story I’m working on but it tackles a pretty delicate subject for a lot of my potential readers so I’m going to take my time with it. I have some research to do to do it any justice. It may never even make it to the light of day.
So!! I am in need of another story idea to work on in the meantime but my brain is not co-operating!

I haven’t been completely ignoring the internet over the last few days. I just haven’t been very active with it.
I’ve enjoyed keeping up with Adam and his trip to South Korea with his AITAF charity.

Adam in his element!! So much more relaxed and happy with the troops than on his red carpet events. It’s quite heartbreaking that Adam lost his career in the Marines to a stupid injury, but hey! their loss is our gain as we get to see his amazing movies. AITAF probably wouldn’t exist if Adam hadn’t been forced into his career change either.

The only upside to the last 9 days is that my diet has got off to a great start!!
I’m not recording my weight and jumping on scales every 5 minutes but it looks like I’ve lost over half a stone and I appear to have my motivation to keep going back!!
One thing I need to start doing over the next 6 days is start some planned exercise to tone up some muscles. Oh the joy.

Right, my brain really isn’t working at the moment so I’ll probably blog again later.
