Today's the Day!

So much so that I ran out and picked these up before work today to be sure they wouldn't be sold out:

The ORIGINAL THEATRICAL VERSIONS.  You know, where Han shoots first.

I am so freaking excited!  I bought these on VHS (on a whim) the last time they were released in 1996 or 1997, shortly before the "Special Edition" movies were released, and I watch them only rarely for fear of destroying the tapes.  Now I have them in a much more durable format.  Yay!

I'm sure hubby already knows, but I'll send him your post as a reminder.

I suppose that means a trip to Best Buy on the way home tonight.

Remember when Lucas said that he'd never release the original theatrical releases? I knew that he was lying them: there's too much money to be made from originalists like me.

And it isn't SWIV: A New Hope. It's STAR WARS, damn it!

Does that sound whiny? I meant it to.
