May these Fab Finds be With You! Fab Finds on Aloha Friday - 5.21.2010

Last week I got bogged down uploading videos of my daughter's band performance on FB, it consumed most of my morning that I usually reserve for making my Fab Finds. Boo to me.  My apologies to you.

Hopefully, this is my moment of redemption. I could do a Father's Day Finds, but the procrastinator in me will wait till next week.  Father's Day is June 21, 2010, by the way. 

The History Channel has a "This Day in History" site, so I looked for something cool.

The American Red Cross was founded today in 1881.  Nah.  Too serious.

On this day in 1927, Charles Lindbergh, the namesake of our local school district, completed the first solo flight across the Atlantic and landed in Paris.  Nah, still too serious.

So I keep reading and discovered "This Week in History". 
Star Wars opened this week in 1977 -  May 25, 1977 to be exact.  Yeeeeaaaaaahhhh! 
I am going to indulge my inner geek and go with Star Wars!   Okay... I know it's a tad bit early, but this should be fun. 

I have all of the Star Wars movies.  All six of them. We also have the animated ones too.  We have 15 episodes of 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' on the DVR.  Apparently, I also passed this on to my son by introducing the movies to my son and supplementing it with Star Wars Lego.  Enough proof of my geekdom, thanks.

Today's search yielded 59 pages of Star Wars wonder on Etsy.  Let's commence with the geekery, shall we?
