I got my stamps! I got my stamps!

OK, so I was sooooo busy the past few days, blogging about Bo Bice and Taylor Hicks, that I didn't even have time to buy my "Star Wars" postage stamps, which just came out Friday ... until today!!!

I just picked them up, and let me tell ya ... they're beautiful!!!

(Seriously! Just look at them!)

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the greatest movie ever made (not to mention the two sequels ... the pre-quels are another matter; don't even get me started on Jar-Jar Binks!), I was more than happy to shell out the $6.15 for the 15-stamp sheet.

OK, I'm sharing way too much here: I actually bought two of those sheets — that's one to use, and one to put away and save, never to touch because of the destructive oils we all have on our hands — because I'm just that big of a geek.

(You think that's bad?! Wait til I write some day about my limited-edition, mail-in exclusive George Lucas stormtrooper action figure! That thing hasn't seen the light of day in a year.) (Oh, and for the record: They're not dolls; they're action figures!)

But I digress...

Anyway ... I've decided only the special people I know are going to receive letters and cards with one of these "Star Wars" beauties affixed. None of my bills are being paid with one of these. (Sorry, Verizon Wireless! Too bad, Time-Warner Cable!)

Instead, I wish the postal service would come out with stamps specifically meant to attach to bills you send out: skull-and-crossbones ... maybe that neon-green, frowning Mr. Yuk face ... something to really let the people taking my money just how bitter I am that they're billing me.

But until that day comes, head out to the post office, pick up your stamps, and may The Force be with you!

OOhhh ... I'm going to have to get my own Star Wars stamps. Nice designs! I do the same thing — buy a set of the ones that I love and put them away for eternity. I'm sure there are plenty of other "stamp geeks" out there, but they're still in the closet about it! And I like your idea for "ugly" stamps to use for paying bills. I have to admit using one of my precious Wonder Woman stamps (from the Super Heroes collection) to pay a bill when I was out of the generic flag stamps I usually use for that purpose, but I quickly went back to the PO for more.
