I was born in 1979. I was obsessed with Star Wars by the time I was 5. I remember watching Jedi over and over again at the Ritenours’ house. (Maybe that’s why I’m dating one of those Ritenours now. I banked on his Star Wars Blue Ray boxed set coming as part of the package.)
Over the last 30 years, I’ve fallen in love with other obsessions, but J.J. Abrams’ interpretation of the next chapter in our beloved Star Wars saga has me more excited than rumors of an upcoming Springsteen tour announcement. The trailers give me chills. (Don’t fuck it up, Abrams. Please, please, don’t fuck this up).
It’s December 24 and after a month of delaying, you’re still trying to figure who the heck who it is you pulled from the Secret Santa bag for your family party. Jeremy? Did someone have a kid and you didn’t notice? Is he a long last cousin that’s been living Potter-style under the stairs all these years? Whose aunt is Aunt Kathy cause you’re pretty sure she isn’t yours.
My family party this year is at a record low of 29 people this year, but with a family that big there’s no way you can know enough about everyone to get them a perfect gift. In an effort to make sure that poor Jeremy doesn’t end up with the re-gifted candle for Christmas, below I’m giving you six beers for the family party members you don’t know well.
