Urchin Star Wars Viewing Update

When last we left the Urchins, they were still firmly entrenched in the enraptured bliss of watching the original Star Wars IV.  (Click to view crazy back story that will explain some of the jokes to follow.)

Last night, The Man went to his part time job (yes, he has a full time job too.) So I asked the girls what they'd like to do. A resounding vote for Star Wars from each of them still has my ears ringing today. I was totally down with that, since as has been established previously here at Tongue in Cheek, I'm a total geek girl and am raising two as well.

So last night we did it up right. Popcorn was popped. The Oldest Urchin brought down her build a bear that plays the Star Wars Theme when you press its foot. (Like mother like daughter- I still have the Star Wars soundtrack on vinyl.) And snoogled up on the couch for some classic Star Wars viewage.

The Oldest Urchin is now beginning to appreciate the humor of Han Solo. In her first viewings, she was righteously indignant on Luke and Leia's behalf at any remarks he made towards them.

The Youngest Urchin, who's now six, is no longer asking what Chewbacca and R2D2 are saying. No. now she's telling me what she thinks they're saying.  Throughout the entire movie.  Yet one thing hasn't changed. When I tell her she's incorrect and what R2D2's really saying is,"Tell the Youngest Urchin to stop talking during my movie." She still makes some very Chewbacca-like noises at me.

So what's your favorite part of Star Wars? Which is your favorite character? And twenty thousand imaginary bonus points to you if you have the Star Wars soundtrack on record or 8 track. You may redeem them in my imaginary shop, Pitchforks 'n Things a.k.a. The Angry Villager.

LOL. You crack me up. I love this insight into girls' night - and it sounds like my kind of night!!

Awww it sounds like you had a lovely night and your six year old sounds so cute. :)

Ava Quinn said...

Thanks, Liz. The entertainment value of the movie is doubled when watching with The Urchins, that's for sure!

Ava Quinn said...

Thanks, Joss! She's a pistol. lol. A good time was definitely had by all.

Of course I love Hans. He was so handsome and such a bad boy hero.

Lexa Cain said...

You're a riot and your kids are too! I think my fav characters are R2D2, C3PO, and Chewbacca. They were adorable. I bought the soundtrack on cassette, but that was left in Mom's basement many years ago. I still love Williams's music though/ :-)

Sherry Ellis said...

Ha! Your daughter sounds a lot like my kids with all her chatter during a movie!

Nancy LaRonda Johnson said...

What a heck of a cute time. :) It's always nice raising mini-mes. Enjoy while you can, while they only imitate the "likable" parts of yourself. :)

No sound track... And no surviving vinyls either of any recordings. :) I hadn't seen Star Wars in quite a while (and it's late), so forgive me for not remembering his name, but my favorite character was Harrison Ford's. Writer’s Mark

Ava Quinn said...

Thanks. Lexi. Okay, I'll spot you ten thousand imaginary bonus points for a tape formerly in your mom's basement. I'm generous like that.

The secondary characters in Star Wars were just as endearing as the main ones. Such a great story!

Ava Quinn said...

Hey Sue! Yes, Han Solo is my favorite as an adult. Though I was a Luke Skywalker fan when I was only an Urchin myself. :)

Ava Quinn said...

Hey Sherry! Isn't that crazy? I don't know where my youngest gets it from.

Ava Quinn said...

Thanks, Nancy. And HAN SOLO!! Absolutely my hands down adult favorite character from Star Wars. Harrison Ford. Mmmm, what to say about that man that hasn't already been said. lol!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ashley Nixon said...

LOL. I love that your youngest asked what Chewbacca was saying. And that you told her R2D2 said not to talk during the movie! I think my favorite is Han Solo, mostly BECAUSE of Harrison Ford.

Also, I gave you a blog award!! whoo!

This is so cute. I can see it unfolding. I liked R2D2 and C3PO.
