The Mattopian Blahg

I'm one of those guys who can say Carrie Fisher was his first big crush. She was so stunningly beautiful as Princess Leia back in Episodes IV through VI. Feisty. Calm under pressure. Hot in a wire slave bikini.

It's such a shock she's already gone.

There was a nice candlelight and lightsaber vigil held this evening at Wings Over the Rockies. Turns out the curator, Matthew Burchette, is also a lifelong Star Wars fan and the museum has its own 3/4-scale X-Wing.

It was hard to watch Episode IV last night, in the wake of the news of her passing. It all seems so very wrong Carrie's no longer with us. Topping it all off, news came in right as the vigil started that her mom, Debbie Reynolds, had also died. According to Todd Fisher, the news channels reported, her last words were that she wanted to be with Carrie.

That's Matthew Burchette in the Imperial officer uniform. It's good to know respect for the princess crosses the great divide of light and dark. Jedis, rebels and Imperials mingled freely in the hangar.
