Framed and Hung: The Story of My Star Wars Poster

$20 @ Michael’s:imageimageimageimage

Star Wars Design a Vinyl Stormtrooper

Paul found a vinyl Stormtrooper on Clearance at Target for $10 (marked down from $20)! After debating whether or not the marker was washable, we found that I am never wrong and it is not erasable. If you have a Mr. Clean-type sponge, it sort of works. We made the decision to decorate it as a group, but Paul with his shaky hands and I with my fear of permanent mistakes bowed out. Ultimately, Laura colored everything but the eyeballs.pTRU1-20509937dt

For some reason, the pointlessness of this story reminds me of those terrible journal entries we had to write in middle school. Just an annoying honey-do slapped up on the whiteboard, antagonizing you right as you enter the room. “WTF? I just walked in the room and you already want something from me? Your ex-husband is a smart man!” I would include in my written response. But seriously, if you see one of these Vinyl Stormtroopers on sale, it’s $10 worth of fun.

And the base looks like a wiener.

Star Wars Theatrical Poster for Christy

Photo on 12-15-15 at 11.25 AM #5.jpgLook what Paul found for Christy! It’s a flawless, double-sided Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens Movie Poster! Sure, he could have sold it online for $250, but instead he was lazy his whole life and gave it to me. Speaking of which, I now have a picture blog called The Fork Awakens. Theforkawakens.com. That’s right. I own it now.

(My rule over the remote at that house was absolute.) I didn’t want to ruin my Original-Star-Wars virginity, but ruin it I did, all over our old couch. There was a lot of question asking and laughing at burnt-up relatives, but ultimately I did not enjoy them enough to watch them again, sooo… Maybe this is a waste of a perfectly good poster. I didn’t mind the one with the Tree Bears. It was less boring than the other two, but I still have no idea what the humans were up to in that one. Tree Bears pulling a Home Alone on Storm Troopers… Hilarious. Photo on 12-15-15 at 11.25 AM #7

Time to head to Michaels and save 80% on an enormous picture frame. Unless someone wants to give me $250 for it, in which case, “Hello, frivolous kitchen equipment shopping spree!”
