Star Wars, Tea, and Mr. T

June 12, 2012

Well friends, Father's Day is nearly upon us. If you're a last-minute-Charlie like me, fear not! I have some delightful items that you may want to consider for that special dad in your life. And by 'delightful', I mean, totally ridiculous.

Obsessed with Star Wars
I'm giving suggestions today based on what a certain individual named Andrew has shown an interest in time and again. First and foremost, he has shown a lasting and unreasonable interest/obsession in All Things Star Wars. Apparently I impressed him when we first met because I could correctly identify who played the character of Grand Moff Tarkin in the first Star Wars film. (Peter Cushing)

So, 'Obsessed with Star Wars' might be a good thing to get for the nerd, dork, darn! I mean, Very Handsome Man, in your life.

And while reading the 2500 trivia questions in the aforementioned Nerd Bible, I mean, awesome book, your partner, husband or pet/child daddy might enjoy one of these fine Star Wars drinking glasses. Except if you get these, I think you'll have to throw away the Luke glass because he looks soooooo lame on this cup.

Darth Vader and Son
Now, if the father person in your life is somewhat worried that the next generation does not fully appreciate or understand the True Importance of Star Wars, then this 'Darth Vader and Son' book by Jefferey Brown might help bridge the gap between generation now and those who kick it old school. Might make that big baddie Darth Vader a bit more accessible. I have no idea what I'm talking about anymore, by the way.

Fortnum & Mason Classic Teas
Another thing that I may, or may not, be giving to Andrew this year is some Fortnum & Mason tea. 'Piccadilly since 1707', yo. What other tea can say that??




For some reason that I will never be able to fathom, Andrew thinks 'The A-Team' is the bees-knees. Or at least he has very fond memories of the show from his childhood. So I think any guy who loves/used to love 'The A-Team' would just adore this Mr. T-in-Your-Pocket key chain. I mean, who wouldn't?

Andrew, if you're reading this....UN-SEE!

  1. I have three brothers so I watched a lot of A-Team growing up. I have lots of fond memories of that show and I loved the movie that came out a few years back. :) Have you seen this on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/80272665/mr-t-mug-tea-cup-featuring-mr-t?ref=v1_other_2. I bet Andrew would love it! :)

    1. Oh my goodness I bet he would it too! He has, of all things, a Mr. T eraser. How does someone wind up with a Mr. T eraser??

  2. Oh my gosh! I bought the Mr. T thing for my nephew (at Archie McPhee's) and it's hysterical!

    2. EVERYONE needs this in their life. You have no idea how often the phrase "I pity the foo'!" comes in handy. :)

  3. Oh, let's just say that when I was at Fortnum & Mason I wanted to buy EVERYTHING there but since I was traveling on a budget I ended up with a jar of jam. :D
    That tea tin is just adorable!

    1. I'm obsessed with F & M!!! I think a jar of jam is a fine item to bring home. I'm the easiest person in the world to shop for b/c one can always give me either tea or jam, and I'm a happy camper!
