Welcome to the world of Maude Garrett

Star Wars to go

Hopefully by now, you’ve established that I’m addicted to Star Wars. In fact, I’m quite fanatical. So imagine my immense delight stumbling through the web pages of Starwars.com and ThinkGeek.com - in my top fav sites to visit. But instead of reading background stories, and lusting over early sketches of Boba-Fett, I have found instant love with the online SHOP.

So I’ll sporadically be posting the most giddying items I discover for purchase. Get those credit cards out, it’s time to be broke. Even more so. But broke in style.

“You don’t need to know my expiration date….” (swift wave of the hand)

“No, I’m not using a Jedi mind trick on you…” (more frantic hand waving)

Today, these are the three most lust-worthy items. I will choose, one, two or all of these items to purchase.

First up is the Star Wars COOKBOOK.

Cantina Chow

Even Wookiees need to eat. And when they do, there is nothing they like more than Wookiee Cookies. Despite what you might be thinking, Wookiee Cookies are not, in fact, hairy. They are, however, delicious, and just one of the many recipes your find in The Star Wars Cookbook. You’ll also learn how to make Jedi Juice Bars, Dark Side Salsa, Boba Fett-Uccine, and loads more.

Why just sit at home eating boring food, when you can follow the instructions in this recipe book and make that same food but with super-outer-galactic names? Anyone who tells you not to play with your food is a dummy – playing is what makes food fun. Especially when you can make a Jedi Juice Bar and then fly it into your mouth-hangar. The Star Wars Cookbook is loaded with different types of inter-galactic recipes: drinks, breakfasts, main courses, desserts, and more. Age is no issue when it comes to Star Wars cuisine – kids as well as adults will have a great time with this book. Whether you drove to your first Star Wars flick or just had your fifth birthday, there’s no reason you can’t whip up some Crazy Cantina Chili at near light speed.

The Star Wars Cookbook

  • Learn how to make out of this world treats.
  • Features
    • 60 wipe clean pages with over 25 recipes
    • Recipes include: Greedo’s Burritos, Twin Sun Toast, Tusken Raider Taters, and more!
    • Concealed wire-O binding – so each page lays flat while you cook
    • Includes 13 foil stickers to label your completed creations

It’s a mere $15.99 not including P&H. EEEEEEIIIIHH!!!

NEXT is the Stormtrooper IPhone case. Recently I’ve dropped my IPhone. I watched in horror as it slipped out of my opened jacket pocket, and plummeted onto the hard concrete below. There was a sickening thud/crack, like that of a skull being crushed. It resonated in my ears over and over as I looked down only to see it’s once perfect screen shattered deep. I tried to use it to see if it still worked – which it does – and managed to imbed a tiny shard of glass deep into my thumb. Ouchies. TIME FOR A CASE!

And what better case than that of the Stormtrooper. The Darth Vader case is equally appealing (“You do not want to ignore the call of the Dark Lord”) so am torn. But the sleek white of the Stormies are seducing me. For only $29.95 who could say no?

LAST but not least, is the Jedi Bath Robe.

After a lengthy shower filled with mandatory hygiene procedures, there would be nothing more fulfilling that stepping into the Jedi Bath Robe. Just looking at the pic makes you want it oh so bad. Jedi’s need to dry themselves off too! After a little searching around – I found that StarWars.com’s shop was cheaper than ThinkGeek’s by $30. Hello savings.

So which is it?

What should I get?

May the debt be with me.
