    Han Solo is my favorite because I had a huge crush (along with a bazillion other people) on Harrison Ford after thesis movies came out. Ok. Who am I kidding? I STILL have a huge crush on him!

    Hey, I love your stories, especially the running tales! I an a 1/2 marathoner and can relate to a lot of them. I liked the FB page, and re-tweeted. Have a great day!

    • darren barnill

      forgot to say, I am old school, C3PO is may fav. I love his dry humor!

    • Thanks so much Darren. I’m really glad to hear you like the running tales. I need to find my next running challenge. I’m a big C-3PO fan too, and was able to meet Anthony Daniels his voice once too. It was interesting how much of Daniels’ personality is C-3PO.

  11. R2D2 is my favourite character but the Ewoks are my favourite race. 🙂 Got here from your FB page (which I have liked).

  12. I like you, I really really like your facebook and twitter feeds! Fav character, shaak-ti….

    • That made me laugh Stephanie. I always think of the same thing when I hear the begging for Facebook “likes.” You like me! You really, really like me!

      OK, I had to look Shaak-ti up. I knew her once I saw her, but didn’t know her name.

  13. I liked you on facebook and favorite is R2D2. Dave I love reading all your adventures.

  24. I love Yoda, actually I love everything Star Wars and that has only been in the last few months since my little boy turned 5. He fell inlove with star wars when we were in WDW at christmas time and he did the Jedi training academy. This was the highlight of his trip all the way from Sydney Australia to the Star Wars Jedi Academy. 🙂
