Small children who like lightsabers.

As a note to everyone I game with, I will be scarce! Because... I am staying with people who don't have wifi, though I'm totes capable of plugging my laptop into their router lol. THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP TO BRING AN ETHERNET CABLE, DAD'S OTHER COUSIN.

But hahaha oh god, these two kids -- my second cousins? -- that I'm staying with are so cute. One is a seven year old girl who told me all about the exciting lives of her dolls. The other one is a nine year old boy who is ridiculously impressed that I know what YouTube is, and who proceeded to show me ALL THE COOLEST THINGS ON YOUTUBE, including:

1. Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny
2. Some Weird Al song about homicidal Santa
3. Weird Al's "Yoda"

And then we played Lego Star Wars. As a side note, how have I never played this game before? Leia and RotS!Obi-Wan killing battledroids together is godly. This kid is five years behind the times but also my hero.

Last time I was home, my brother was so weirded out that I knew what FTW was. He was pretty sure he and his friends had invented it.

I only played something like 10 minutes of Lego Star Wars when I worked in a gamestop, but I remember being amused at the apparently very low gravity. Limbs, everywhere.

One of the kids I babysit regularly loves Lego games. Looooves. The only issue he has with them is that there isn't an Indiana Jones/Star Wars crossover game.

That's really adorable! I miss when my brothers were young and cute.

Wait, they were never cute.

Ahaha Lego Star Wars is great. I've been meaning to check out the one that combined both the prequels and the original trilogy (iirc they came out as seperate games originally? Or something.)
