You don't need the force, you need a wife! Oh crap, I'm probably in trouble now.

I find that sitting on the couch a well thrown cushion (with a clockwise rotation) can flip the light switch to the off position. Maybe it will work on the TV ???

Be careful what you wish for........

Ever seen the fan movie "To Know A Jedi" ? If you can find it online....it's a good movie (guy who made it died last year) and really makes you think about your character.

Awww thanks, Vega.

But I bet you might not be able to fill in for some of the other Force skillz I want to develop. For instance, the Force would be totally awesome during a ping pong game. I mean, you could be playing along, and just when your opponent was about to score a really good point, you could, like. . . .um, use the Force to make some Stormtroopers ignore you.

Everyone I know thinks I'm a character.

PS - I suppose I shouldn't be complaining, as I was posting this thread from a postage-stamp sized hotel room. Retrieving the remote basically involved leaning waaaaaay back in my chair, which pretty much lets me reach half the room. To get to the other half, I either have to crawl over the bed or move my bike out of the way to walk around it. . .
