Yes. I’ve seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi. My friend Laura (who you might remember from the zillion times I’ve mentioned her on this website) got me a ticket for Christmas and we saw it at one in the goddamn morning the day it came out and we did not get back until four-thirty in the morning and even though I am a very old person masquerading as an almost-thirty-person it was WORTH IT. And I will not spoil one single thing for you. But I will show you all the very coolest Star Wars things I’ve found on the internet.

  1. But also good work finding that backpack. It’s the only Porg merch I’ve seen that was actually cute. I looked up the stuffed animal immediately after the film and couldn’t believe that Disney went to so much effort to set up a good merch sell and then made weird looking merch.
