    How I needed my ROLE PLAY LIGHTSABER - true story!!! (funny I too...I suppose)

    I think you'll find this funny.

    Things got pretty interesting the other day. Some
    fool hit our power transformer for my street and apartment complex. He drove right into it and broke it apart and fell down this landscaped embankment we have in front of my apartments and caused the whole street to black-out!

    This happened Tuesday night. Well I couldn't finish my work on my computer, and I had to run out and buy candles. (I had a few, but not exactly "Castle Dracula.") - I said it that way because the store had mostly Halloween candles *roll your eyes*

    I was just coming home from the gym after my workout too - and so here I was: a bachelor with an electric oven, range, and no way to use his microwave!!! (the last part's really awful!) And I'm hungry after I exercise for sure! So I go to Denny's as it's the closest restaurant and they still had power. I had a hamburger. Then I go to the grocery store and buy candles. I can't pull into my parking lot because the police are there arresting the guy (probably for drunk driving) and the firetruck is there making sure his car's not catching fire. So I park all the way up the street
    as everyone's got cars all over the place here because school just got started, and I walk back only to find I have no more matches after "x" number of summer BBQ's. That's after ranksacking my kitchen with only the light of my "Obi-Wan Kenobi lightsaber." (I knew I bought that for a good reason!) So it's back to the grocery store for some matches. Thank God the college store is 24 hours! OK, so then I get back and the power company is there with power tools going off at 1 o'clock in the morning trying to restore the transformer. And police are questioning witnesses and want to know if I
    usually walk around with a lightsaber. Sure. Doesn't everybody? OK now. So now I'm home and I can light up my "bloody-Transylvanian-Gothic-Death- Candles" and the 8 "Magic Pumpkin" ones which were the only other ones available. Fine. Well I'd been at the gym and I'm still in my sweat clothes. I take care of myself and my home, and when I get home from the gym I go to
    bed only after I clean up, shampoo and all. Well there's nothing like a shower by candlelight, right? In another situation if I had some company, it'd kind of be romantic...well I suppose that's a bubble bath, huh? NOT IN COLD WATER!!! I have an electric water heater. Sure the warm tank lasted right until I had shampoo in my hair. Next thing I know, my voice has
    changed it's pitch for 24 hours!!! OK, I cope with that.

    But Tuesday when we got power back, I could finally shave (with my electric razor of course), and finish my work about half a day later. Welcome to "life when you move away from home and live at college!" I thought you might enjoy that true story. Probably a little more than I did. He-he. Hah-hah. I know... but the moral of the story is - "never move out on your own unless you have a lightsaber."

    I guess my night just proved what every Star Wars fan should know. Now if the police would just let me out of this psychiatric ward... - I keep telling them I don't think I'm Luke Skywalker!

    Anyway, I hope you're laughing because I had to. That's life. You can't go through it without a sense of humor. And I was just kidding about that last part. I am Luke Skywalker!

    -er Tycho Celchu, I mean.

    So you were running around town, in sweat pants, stinking, and carrying a lightsaber. Were you wearing your Pod-Racing T-Shirt as well?

    And then you get home and your naughty bits shrivel up inside of you when you are taking a nice romantic shower alone.

    I've had days like that too.

    Who the hell lives in Southern California without an emergency flashlight? That's barely the beginning of the basic list of essentials for an earthquake kit! (you also need emergency shoes, clothes, a thermal blanket, canned foods, a can opener, a small radio, water, and batteries for radio and flashlight) I've got a battery-powered lantern that can last over 16 hours on a single set of batteries, $20 at WM. The dang lightsaber automatically shuts off after 2 minutes. Perhaps it's just all that easy San Diego living that's made you soft... in the head.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    I took the batteries out of my emergency lightsaber and used them in my lightsaber!

    hahhahaa about a month or so ago, power went out in my apartment in columbus at about 9:30 at night...i was in my room on the net when it happened. I found my Dooku Saber and ignited that bad boy!!! Made my way around the apartment quite handy too. I went outside to converse with the neighbors about the dilemma and they were quite puzzled to see a kid in shorts, t-shirt with his neato Star Wars saber! They looked at me kinda funny, but i just smiled. hehehehehe

    Some years ago when my house burnt and we were moving back in, it would be the next day before we got power and stuff to the house and we only had two ways of getting light - a pitiful flashlight, and my ROTJ Luke lightsaber. We had to use that for a quite a bit to get stuff we needed out of boxes while someone else was hogging the other flash light. Oh well, if you don't have the blade out it's a pretty good flash light.

    (What, you expect me to have an operating flashlight when my lightsaber needs batteries?)

    Our power went out once a few years ago, and we only had one candle that we could come up with. And all the flashlights were missing or dead. I'll tell you what, when you really have to use the bathroom, and someone else has the candle, that Darth Vader's Electronic Lightsaber is a lifesaver.

    The General Mills lightsabers work great also.I used mine about a month ago when the power went out.We had flashlights,but my family was using those.Just dont turn them on constantly..or the batteries will wear out of course.
