Any Star Wars fan worth their Adegan crystals knows that today is Star Wars Day, or, as some prefer to call it: “May the Fourth be with You” Day. And while there are probably millions of celebrations taking place around the globe today — Greta and I have been playing the LEGO Star Wars video game on the Wii — perhaps one of the coolest involves the release of a brand new line of bad-ass footwear by Vault for Vans.
That’s right, Jedis, the slacker geniuses behind the world’s favorite skater slip-ons have upped their cool factor once again by releasing a limited edition line of sneakers, backpacks, hats and accessories featuring characters from the Star Wars universe.
My favorites are the pair with the stormtrooper helmets and the slip-on’s with the AT-AT Walkers, lightening bolts and little palm trees! Talk about the perfect shoes for summer! Awesome!

I know what you’re thinking…good lord, is he still talking about the freaking Olympics? They haven’t even started yet! Yes, I’m still talking about them, but, this time I’ll be super brief. I just wanted to tell you about some cool Olympic Mascot Games I found on the London 2012 website just now.
Like I mentioned earlier, I’ve been geeking out about the games all day today and while searching for some pictures of the Olympic games for Greta, I found these online games instead. She can’t play most of them alone yet, but, lemme tell ya, she absolutely LOVED the make your own mascot game. We already have a nice little collection of our saved Wenlock and Mandeville’s online and Greta loves looking at them. I still think the mascots themselves are kinda creepy, but, the games and other activities on their site are really fun and highly-addictive.
So, if you have kids at home — or even if you don’t! — I recommend checking out some of these super cool mascot games for yourself. At the very least they’re an awesome way to keep the little ones occupied while Mommy and Daddy watch the stirring Badminton finals next week.
