No, this isn't a bad attempt at Star Wars fan fiction.  smile

Checked the mail when I got home yesterday, and there was a small package from Dealextreme Wholesalers in Hong Kong.  When I opened it up, there was a 6" mini keychain lighsaber that lights up when you push a button on the handle.  Strange thing is, however, I never ordered this:







I checked my E-bay, Paypal, and bank accounts to make sure they didn't get hijacked, and everything seems in order.  It's got my name and address on the package, but for the life of me, I have no idea who sent it or why.  I haven't even bought anything online outside of Amazon for nearly 6 months, so I don't think it could be a mixed-up order.  Mrs. Gratch has no idea what it is either.

So what's the explanation?  Is it a present from a secret admirer in Hong Kong?  Or maybe it's a warning that a group of rogue Jedi will be attacking my house!  If I go missing in the next couple days, will someone please call the cops?

I don't think that is a light saber.  I think you are getting hand cancer right now.

Light sabre?  That doesnt even qualify as a light dagger, though it maybe a light penknife. You must be a youngling.

There's a little jedi inside all of us.  Yours wants his lightsaber.

Getting it to him could be uncomfortable.

hey, that looks like the lightsaber that came with the Jedi Knight 2: Outcast special edition.  maybe it was contaminated with a biological agent and you now have ebola.

Turns out it's a site promoting a coffee-table book of the same name featuring Star Wars tattoos. Some pretty cool stuff. The Yoda on the "sample pages" page is stunning...

Your ring looks a lot like mine.

Does the center part of your ring have a swirly line going around the band with dots on each side of the swirl. Sort of like a yin yang that keeps repeating itself?

It's certainly cool, I just don't know why it was sent to me.

Having watched this 'movie' (thanks to the crew over at Rifftrax), I can only say this:

 crybaby crybaby crybaby

And to be remotely on topic - I'm guessing the sender got the address off by a digit or two. Or was it actually addressed to you?
