I want to be Padme when I grow up...

Perhaps some of you have gathered that I am a fan of Padme Amidala. I'm known (along with Ophie, of course) to comment with an impetuous "Padme!!!" on posts debating the Eowyn vs. Arwen issue. Not that I'm not a big LotR fan as well...

I'm even known to dress up as Padme for odd photoshoots by my equally odd sister (no offense, Ophe... I'm odd too, you know):
And I comment on random people's blogs, saying,
"You should put 'Across the Stars' by John Williams on your play list... it's beautiful.


Speaking of that stunning song, the first time I heard it, I was in our car listening to the classical music station when this epic piece of music came on... imagine my surprise when the DJ announced it was the love theme for Anakin and Padme.

The second time I listened to it, I YouTubed it and played a song vid. The above picture was the background the entire time. Needless to say, I go very misty.


Padme is extremely intelligent. She's beautiful. She has a noble spirit. No wonder I want to be Padme when I grow up...
...I don't, however, plan on marrying an unstable murdere--- never mind.
She's really handy with a gun.
Sigh. Don't you wish 2 bun covers, one each side of the head, was a passable fashion statement here on earth?

I like Leia better. :P Padme's cool too, but her daughter is a better shot with a blaster. And Leia doesn't fall in love with the really bad guy. *snicker*

Okay, you be Padme, I'll be Leia. No, scratch that. I'd rather be R2. The heroic droid beats all!

Oh, and John Williams is AWESOME! I love almost all his music. I've been humming Yoda's theme all day, even at church. *guilt*

I really like Padme and Natalie Portman, the actress who plays her. =] I love the outfits she wears...and who says two buns on the sides of your head aren't a passable fashion statement?? ;]
