As great as our Macs and iDevices are, there are times when we need to get out from behind the screen and do something fun with our families, friends, and/or significant others. Fortunately, this weekend offers a number of great activities that will get you out of the house, while still keeping up with those traditional geek values and interests.
Star Wars Day, May 4
Sure, it may be a little late to come to work dressed as a one of the 501st Legion or to make that Jar Jar Binks piñata, but there’s still plenty to do on May the Fourth (get it?). Here’s just a couple of ideas off the top of my head:
- Back to back viewings of the Original Trilogy.
- Impromptu light saber fights with your friends during your lunch hour.
- Organize a Star Wars themed dance routine.
- Dress up your dog.
I’m sure you can come up with other ideas, too. Just remember: friends don’t let friends watch the prequels.
