Show/Hide comments [ 4 ] Every time I see a reference to Princess Leia and cinnamon buns, I'm reminded of the first time I dressed up as her. It wasn't even Halloween : our school had received a gift of a "fort" ( which is to say a really large play structure ) and the only thing we wanted to play on that fort was "Star Wars" which was the new blockbuster that was released the summer before ( yes, I am old ). My friends and I decided to do it in character so of course I came as Leia, along with several other girls. ( We were oddly unexcited to play Aunt Beru. Huh.) I was looking forward to it for like a week and I was so disappointed that I didn't have enough hair to make VERY LARGE buns. Sigh.. Carrie Fisher must have hair down to her butt, I thought. The concept of extensions or any type of fake hair was foreign to me. Other memories… Darth Vader was properly scary. The black outfit, the freaky mask, the heavy breathing.. he was the monster under the bed. I also remember not understanding how he appeared to work for Emperor Palpatine. Vader was the biggest bad-ass, couldn't he just kill Palpatine and take over? What was stopping him? ( In the end, apparently nothing.) And why the fuck was Leia flirting with Han Solo when anybody could see Luke ( Mark Hamill ) was the cutest?? Han Solo looked old and creepy to us and he seemed like kind of a dick. And Luke had a crush on her?? Come on, Leia – get it together! Obviously we had to revise our opinions a few years later when it was revealed they were siblings ( a huge disappointment to me). It took many more years to understand the, uh, complicated underpinnings of the Han Solo/Leia relationship. ( And to be honest a large part of me still watches that and thinks "don't fall for the emotionally unavailable dick, Leia". ) Back then it really was possible that the x-wing starfighters might not blow up the Death Star! I remember the tension mounting as one after another failed. And now Luke was gonna use the Force?? He hadn't even met Yoda yet! He was like a baby Jedhi! Ok strictly speaking, we didn't know who Yoda was at that point. But I do remember it was murky about when and how you could use the Force. It would be impossible to reconstruct all that innocence now. Reply The link to the milkshake recipe is dead 🙁 Reply The 11 in the url should be a 12.
