To be honest for Adam and myself (Andrea), Star Wars week started for us Tuesday night at the Dodgers Baseball game. The stadium was invaded with Jedi, Storm Troopers and Darth Vader. They even gave out free T-shirts to commemorate the night.
So, now, onward to the first day of Star Wars Celebration and our further adventures into geekdom!
First things first;
This place was in chaos this morning! There were lines for panels, lines for registration and more lines to get to the exhibit hall.
People, aliens, Storm Troopers and “Slave Leias” were every where.
As you can see, it would have been hard for anyone to miss “the droids they were looking for”.
Once we got inside to the exhibit hall, it was sensory overload. There were booths for taking pictures in your favorite Star Wars Scene to buying your favorite toys, so much to see and so much to do it was hard to decide where to truly begin.
I will be posting updates and photos here throughout the four day experience as we wander, explore, see all we can see and do all we can do. It will be an exhausting amazing adventure and we will bring it all to you from our point of view!
More to come later…

May the speed of The Flash be with your router
And it’s strength of connection be as the Bifrost bridge
May the powers of Longshot and Domino be with you
That the powers of probability be shifted to you
May the Goblin King reorder time
That the wait with the spinning blue circle not lull you into madness
May your workspace be as Mars to Dr, Manhattan
And your mind by as Jean Gray’s to keep everyone away
May the stars align, the distractions fade, the children stay quiet and the animals be calm
May the phone stay silent and the workload blessedly grind to a halt
May you see the worlds “Congratulations”! And leave the “We’re Sorry” for another
Blessed is the power of the Epic Waiting Room
May it’s favor shine upon you and give you all you desire
