They Sure Beat My Star Wars Sheets


When I was a kid I had the best set of Return of the Jedi bed linens and curtains. I had a matching waste basket even. I loved those. As an adult I find it hard to get excited about bed linens. However, I really wish this set came in king. Maybe my wife and I get separate single beds so I can have these? Spooning my wife or sheets with Cephalopods and submarines…tough decision.

  1. Return of the Jedi?

    *sigh* poor young child.

    mine were for the original film, BEFORE they added “A New Hope” to it. :)

  2. Spooning my wife or sheets with Cephalopods and submarines…tough decision.

    Maybe if your wife reads this blog, the decision has already been made for you…

  3. Aw man, those are cooler than mine. I did have a transformers popup tent bed thing as a kid though, which I think surpasses the Jedi sheets.
