I caught an awesome article in the WSJ this morning. Apparently to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars and the commemorative Star Wars stamp, they're dressing up a bunch of mailboxes as R2-D2! From SciFi.com: "Apparently the post office is staffed by a bunch of geeks, as they've decided to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars by tricking out some mailboxes to look like R2D2. Apparently the USPS really knows the Star Wars audience, as they're not gonna place them on the street where obsessed fans can steal them in the dark of night. They'll be placed indoors under the protective eye of our nations postal workers.

Think any other government agencies will be joining the anniversary celebration? Perhaps cops will start dressing like storm troopers, or maybe the people at the DMV will start issuing licenses to fly spaceships. Hoo boy, that would sure be great! Or, they could spend our tax dollars on being efficient, but that's not really as fun."

I think that's amazingly awesome! They even dressed up the regular USPS.com with a little R2-D2 scrolling across the screen and created a new website (www.uspsjedimaster.com) for the promotion. I hope I get to actually see one! Oh man, I am such an R2-D2 Fangirl.

So, I was going to go register for classes today, but that didn't happen. I feel like it's too late to haul over to MCC and call it a "lunch break". Boo. But anyway, I was filling out the registration form and summer classes are more expensive! Like $83 more expensive! WTF! I hope this is a summer class thing and not a permanent tuition hike. Argh. And I looked at what books cost for the same class this semester... $250! ($200 if I can get them used...) Damn! That's a lot of money! Stupid summer classes. Grrr. I'm totally going to regret taking this class, but I don't really have a choice. *sigh* I am poor.

I want to go clothes shopping. I just bought some shirts and shoes from Target.com, so we'll see how those go when they arrive. I want to go to Old Navy. Maybe this weekend. Maybe Bobs, too. Or DSW. I am in dire need of new sneakers. I can just never find shoes I like. :(

Oh, and for real, I'm going to go to the gym tonight. Promise. Later, skaterz.
