in any case, this book is full of similarly adorable pictures, and if you’ve liked any of jeffrey brown’s cute nerdy star wars books, this would be a good addition to that shelf.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
