So, basically all day today I’ve been trying to pithily pontificate the joys and wonders of Star Wars: this being the unofficial holiday of one of the greatest Sci-Fi properties in the history of Man.

I’m referring to that time of year where the general populace makes promises to themselves in full knowledge that they have no intention of keeping said promises.
