It's a new year, which means new goals. I thought about blogging about my goals for the year, but I can sum that up by saying I want to read, write, watch and listen to more science fiction stories and share it with others.
Alternatively, I could have written a book review of an old, little-known novel I read (which I still may blog about).
Or I could have shared a 300-word story I wrote (my first attempt at writing flash fiction).
Ultimately, I decided to participate in Vicki Rocho's Eye Candy Blogfest from her Rambles & Randomness blog.
I found out about it from Alex J. Cavanaugh's blog.
Basically, participants are asked to post a picture that makes them smile. So here's my pick:
One caption I read is: "This is what staring in the prequels did to them." I thought of one for C-3PO to say to R2-D2: "Don't worry Artoo; the original trilogy is coming out in 3D."
But I think actual quotes from C-3PO in the movies and shows would be better:
"Excuse me sir, but that R2-D2 is in prime condition, a real bargain."
"I beg your pardon. What do you mean, naked?" [Artoo chatters] "My parts are showing? My goodness."
"I can assure you, they will never get me onto one of those dreadful starships."
"My obtuse little friend, if they had needed our help, they would have asked for it, hmm? You obviously have a great deal to learn about human behavior."
"Is my head on strait?"
"What happened? I had the most peculiar dream."
"We seem to be made to suffer. It's our lot in life."
"Artoo says the chances of survival are seven hundred seventy-five...to one."
"We are now part of the tribe!"
"Days like this make me think I was manufactured under a bad sign."
Can you think of another caption?
