I completely forgot today was Friday since all my days have started to blur together. My last day that I’ve physically spent in the office was Monday 12/23. I had vacation for 12/24 and 12/25, took PTO 12/26 and 12/27, worked from home 12/30, had vacation 12/31 and 1/1, and now…two days of a snowstorm have forced the office to close its doors and for me to work from home once more.
I actually want to go to work though at this point, you know? I love this lounging around, but at the same time I feel like I’m beginning to get cabin fever. I once took over a week off for a staycation during the summer, but that was so much more fun. I went to the beach, explored the area on bike, went on some hiking trails…it’s harder now because it’s cold and all activities basically include eating at restaurants. I guess I could go skiing but a) it’s 2 hours to the nearest ski slope and b) it’s a lot more money to go skiing than to eat out. So I think I’d rather have trouble buttoning my pants for a few weeks instead. 😉
Anyway. That’s why I forgot it was Friday today, because I haven’t had a normal schedule for almost two weeks.
There really isn’t much to say about this scene in the first place. But isn’t it weird that Lama Su and Tuan We didn’t think anything strange about Obi-Wan Kenobi randomly showing up on his planet? I always thought that weird. Obi-Wan clearly has no idea where he is and what he’s supposed to be looking for, but the Kaminoans act like they’re expecting him. I guess the Jedi hold more influence in the far reaches of the galaxy than I thought they did. “Oh, you’re a Jedi? Sure, we’ll tell you whatever you need to know…”
Secondly, Obi-Wan is not very bright. He decides to relay a message back to Coruscant and the Jedi in the open. I understand that no one in his or her right mind would ever want to go outside in that weather, but if you were on a semi-secret investigative mission, why would you begin doing a hologram where everyone can see you? Sigh. C’mon, Obi-Wan, you know better than that. The Jedi are getting overconfident. And lazy.
Oh, by the way, I’M SICK OF SNOW.
EXTERIOR: TIPOCA CITY, KAMINO LANDING PLATFORM (RAINSTORM) – LATE DAY
OBI-WAN comes out from the tower into the driving rain. The door closes behind him. He pulls his robe around him and stands braced against the gale. OBI-WAN glances back toward the closed door, confirming that LAMA SU has left.
Below, a huge wave crashes against the stilts. Spray flies high and whips across the platform to where OBI-WAN is standing. He walks over to his Starfighter, looks to see if anyone is watching, then addresses ARFOUR.
