Happy birthday, The Empire Strikes Back!

I wonder where my The Empire Strikes Back movie poster is today. I won it by calling in to a Pittsburgh radio station — WDVE? probably — and it was the featured decorative element of my high school dorm room, as you can see in the photo above.

As a teenage fangirl, I was not much interested in Han Solo as portrayed in Star Wars. That changed completely with Empire. I’m pretty sure it was the “I know” that sealed it.

NOTE: Seated on my bed in this photo is my roommate Amy Vonderau. Amy, if you’re Googling yourself and come across this post, please contact me. I have Big Plans of which I want you to be part.

NOTE 2: Yes, the post to the left is a unicorn poster. Deal with it.
