In Reston, A Different Kind of White Christmas

White Christmas.jpg

From our Facebook BFFs at Volunteer Reston, please to be enjoying this somewhat shocking display of force from the weekend's holiday parade. At the risk of outing our geeky side, we wonder if perhaps our very own Fake Downtown Gritty Urban Core has replaced Tosche Station as the best place to pick up some power converters, the end.


  1. You can waste time with your friends when your chores are done!

  2. Only a person who's spent too much time in the midday sun repairing pesky moisture 'vaporators out on the south range would even know about Tosche Station, Restonian. Way to go!

  3. Because nothing says "Christmas" like the Emperor's own elite Stormtroopers, and bounty hunter scum.

    Hey, Restonian, guess what? If you enter the term "gritty urban core" into Google, out of 7,210 results the top two are yours! I think you should trademark the phrase.

    And you come in sixth out of 11,800 results for "fake downtown".

    Apropos of nothing, perhaps, but then again inquiring minds might want to know.

  5. What next? Chancellor Palpatine as Santa Claus? Jar Jar as an elf?

  6. "What's next"?

    Bob Simon as Yoda
    Cathy Hudgins as Princess Leia
    Ken Cuccinelli as Darth Vader
    Ken Plum as C3PO
    Milt Matthews as Chewbacca

  7. Kathleen Driscol as PAdme Amedala
    Robin Smyers as Jabba the Hutt
    Restonian as Han Solo
    BICO as Anakin Skywalker
    Convict as Obi-wan
    Peasant as Qui Gon
    Rod Koozmin as Jar-Jar
    HCKD as Luke Skywalker
