I'm not sure where I've been for my entire life but I only recently discovered that Luke Skywalker's home on Tatooine is actually a real life hotel that you can stay at for $10 a NIGHT.

Dudes, I woke up this morning and looked out the window and the world looked SO GREEN after all the rain Iowa got this week. It's been warm here for weeks, but it's not spring until the plants are growing. And it looks like people in the Offbeat Home Flickr pool are feeling the same fresh verdantness. Let's take a look at the world with fresh eyes, and enjoy the Clicky Link bounty.

This is how I pulled off one hell of an awesome Nerdy Thirty birthday theme with only two weeks to plan, and with a little help from my friends.
