Today, May 25 is a day that will long live in the hearts of geeks! On this day, in 1977, the Earth moved, the skies wept, and a little movie called Star Wars opened. I was 2 years old at the time and ever since, I have had a deep love for all things Star Wars. But, I also have an appreciation for the sci-fi genre in general.

Geek Pride Day originated in Spain. In addition, it falls on the anniversary of the original Star Wars film. In 2008, Geek Pride Day came to America and in 2009, Canada. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=231355998949&ref=mf Check out these reason to let your Geek Pride fly http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2010/05/5-reasons-to-be-proud-on-geek-pride-day/

So in honor of Geek Pride Day, I thought I would share a little of my geekiness! In our home, Star Wars is golden. I think there is something Star Wars in EVERY room of our house. R2-D2 is one of my favorite and most collected. I have no idea how many R2-D2s I own. The range in size from 1/2 inch to life sized. These are a few of my favorite Star Wars, R2-D2 items.

The R2-D2 rolling cooler, Great for parties!

Shire of R2. This is one of my shelves dedicated to R2.

But my favorite R2 unit of all, is my custom built R2-AL. This is a project that my husband and I have been working on for almost 2 years now. That's me in my Endor Leia costume. Yes, we dress up too.
