What is the geekiest thing about your family that has come from your love of starwars?
My son asks to watch any starwars movie because he wants to watch the "robots."
He also will stop doing whatever he is doing, no matter what it is, to sit on daddy's lap and watch a fanfilm.
In our tastefully decorated home, we have a Darth Vader bust in the main living room, and a full size Darth Vader cutout upstairs in the family room.
Also, I managed to convince my husband to dress up as a Jedi and camp out for Episode II with me. He really REALLY loves me.
Just because your a hippie Jedi. you know, "make love not war..."
You had better keep your eye on that Vader bust while Riff's there, or it might just disappear. He's been trying to get his grubby little hands on one ever since they were announced.
uhm....I don't know...
My family helps me look for saber parts..maybe...
Oh, it's not a cast bust, it's one of those 3-D puzzles.
Ahhhh. Well, in that case, it might be safe.
I guess the geekiest thing about Star Wars and my family is that when we were kids, my brother had a life sized R2D2 toy box that was on wheels. I used to let him get in it and push him around so he could pretend to be R2.
I also contend that my brother has seen the original trilogy more than any other person alive. He's autistic and for a period of about 10 years, he would watch them back to back all day long. I can't tell you how many set of tapes he's worn out.
Oh, btw, I know how bold of a statement that is, and how many other people make that claim. But I stand by it.
No, I think he wins.
Well, some situations just call for a quote from a Star Wars movie............so, over the years, that is what I have done & every once in a while one of my family members will be caught doing the same thing. hehee

and sometime they don't, but that's what makes us the geekiest of all sci-fi fandom
No, I think that Trekkies have that claim to fame. We are pretty geeky, nothing beats a guy in full on Klingon battle gear, recite Hamlet in fluent Klingon. I mean, can anyone speak Huttese? I know I can speak Jawa (oo-tay-dee).
I can speak Gabba the Butt
