Cats and Lightsabers: The Best of Both Worlds

Welcome to Laugh Out Loud Monday (aka LOL Monday): because, like my favoriteĀ fat cat, I hate Mondays, I thought, “What better way to start the week than with a laugh?”

My husband is a Star Wars nut. He’s been a collector since childhood. I’ve always enjoyed watching sci-fi, but that’s about it. Now, thanks to my Dear Husband, I own my own toy Darth Maul lightsaber (yes, we had to duel after we put them together) and my own set of Darth Maul lightsaber chopsticks, which have a cool magnet setup so you can connect the handles.

Of course, I also love cats, which is a big reason why in my current WIP, Apprentice Cat, the protagonist is a magical tom cat. Toby befriends a reckless adolescent male witch in order track down the Master Cat responsible for the tom’s father’s disappearance before the Master Cat can take over the human-run government. (I’m still working on my one-sentence description. šŸ™‚ )

So what do cats have to do with Star Wars?

Nothing, unless you’re a Jedi Kitten. Take a look:

What opposites have you balanced in your life? How have significant others influenced your hobbies?

  1. How’d they do that? Not only the kittens stalking each other, but putting the laser lights right where they needed to be. Cute! Nice touch, the teen boy shushing them ’cause he’s on the phone.

    I guess the greatest balance of opposites would be between my wonderful husband and I. Time, loyalty on his part, respect, consideration over the years have fostered the wonder of a peaceful life together although we have few interests in common. Quite a miracle, actually! He started out as my port in a storm, and still holds the champion title.

    My eldest daughter influenced me greatly, although not for a hobby, but in a new career as a writer Five plus years ago.
