A bit of shopping today...  
It was a beautiful day here in Maryland today...blue sky, sunshine, cool breeze...so where am I? LOL...in the mall! I didn't really buy anything except a book and a magazine...The book was "Star Wars : The New Essential Guide to Characters...

Book Description

The Star Wars universe is expanding faster than ever before, and Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Characters has received an exciting new face-lift-with completely updated text and more than a hundred brand new, full-color illustrations by extraordinary new artist Michael Sutfin.

This all-new Essential Guide features detailed profiles of more than one hundred and thirty characters from across the Star Wars galaxy, including all of your favorites-such as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Darth Vader, and Mara Jade-as well as, from Episode II:

• Jango Fett • Count Dooku • Anakin Skywalker • Zam Wesell

And the key players from Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace:

Here is complete, updated coverage of the novels from the incredible New Jedi Order and all of the classic movies, books, comics, TV specials, games, and the rest of the Star Wars universe.

This must-have book describes the essential history and personal data for each character-with vital statistics, homeworlds, and political affiliations.

More characters, more information, brilliant artwork-the Essential Guides are hotter than ever!


The Magazine I bought is OUT Traveler...a guide to gay travel...I noticed the guy on the cover first...LOL...then I saw it was about Iceland, one of the places I haven't been that I've always wanted to go!

Here's a link to their website...

You're the man to ask then: what is the age difference between Anakin and Padme? (Episode I was on teevee last night, and, well, the question kinda came up.)
Mark: clarenceboywondermark on May 22nd, 2005 10:56 pm (UTC)
EEP...not sure that's in the book...but I'm thinking their age difference is 7-9 yrs!
A.M.ultimategirl on May 23rd, 2005 01:16 am (UTC)
That's what I'm thinking as well. (there's a cougar joke in there somewhere)
Mark: thinkingboywondermark on May 23rd, 2005 04:13 am (UTC)
As in Large Wild Cat or Mellancamp?! :)
A.M.ultimategirl on May 23rd, 2005 12:35 pm (UTC)
As in a woman who prefers the company of younger men. ;)

Heh. I remember the "essential" Star Wars books. I have a good 50 Star Wars novels, all of which I've read at least twice. I used to be such a huge fan...I've been considering starting to pick up the new books, heh.
Mark: classicboywondermark on May 22nd, 2005 10:57 pm (UTC)
So...wouldn't it be cool if Lucas did a "Jedi Academy" series for TV?! :)

Mark: abercrombieboywondermark on May 23rd, 2005 03:37 pm (UTC)
No need to be scared, Den...just careful...like you would going anywhere unknown to you in the US!
