There is something simultaneously fun and horrifying about the tie-in items that accompany film releases.
Porgs are probably going to be unmissable in coming weeks as the new Star Wars film approaches, however I was relieved to see that they didn’t feature in the Heinz Star Wars Pasta Shapes that I found in the shops this week
Thank goodness that Disney are unlikely to go down the same path as KISS, making Porg condoms and coffins unlikely – those would be most disturbing
Unpacking has been fun, we’ve found all sorts of things and some of them are slightly random – like the fact that the Husband has 36 pairs of brand new still-packaged socks that he had forgotten we’d bought.
I am actually very glad we’ve found all these socks as it prevented me from buying him some fantastically ugly socks that I found amusing – for all the wrong reasons!
He likes Star Wars, I like hideous pop culture monstrosities… thank goodness there was no reason to buy them!
If anyone does want to purchase these ‘interesting’ socks then the Marks and Spencer’s website should be able to hook you up.
I admit that a Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar isn’t a book but it is does have a cardboard outside, so I’m prepared to say it counts for today’s purposes.
I’m organised this year, I’ve bought the husband a Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar well in advance. It is pretty darned expensive in my opinion (£25), but he really enjoyed last year’s one so I sort of felt that it would be mean not to get it as I’d seen it.
One day I will understand how I can want to have a tasteful minimalist house but at the same time like books, music, dvds and stuff enough to make actually possessing one impossible.
Despite ‘Fanboys’ and despite Jar Jar Binks I am very aware that Star Wars has a large following and that my spouse is still enthusiastic about it.
Very enthusiastic given I’ve just placed the order for the Lego Star Wars advent calendar for him and paid extra for next day pre-1pm delivery so that I don’t have to worry about it actually arriving ok!
So with that in mind Storm Trooper nails seem a funky idea
