My Twitter account is linked to this webpage. After my post yesterday about Star Wars candy corn I was surprised to get a new follower almost immediately. It was Darth Vader. By this morning I had three more followers:
After getting the first notification, I sent texts to a bunch of friends and family. I mean, how could you not? Below is a conversation I had with a friend who is a photographer and equine enthusiast:
I suddenly had an image of Darth Vader going into his bedroom, the room NO ONE else is allowed into, and seeing the walls covered in horse posters. He may be part man, part machine but he has the sensitive soul of a twelve-year old girl. Suddenly changes your perception of him, doesn't it? I noticed that the Darths on Twitter are pretty funny. Here are some tweets just from today that I liked:
Darth cares about correct grammar. So do I. He has a tragic back story, which is always appealing. I may be falling in love. I'm tempted to send flirty messages. (OK, this is where I was going to insert an example, like, "How big is your lightsaber anyway?" but I thought it wouldn't be ladylike). I'm going to use hashtag #DarthVader when I post this on Twitter, so we'll see if I get any more attention from the man in black (not Johnny Cash-- he's dead; no, I'm referring to feedback from a fictional character, which makes MUCH more sense.).
I'm the worst kind of asshole-- I think I'm funny.
