I know I don’t look like a supernerd, but I totally am. I have a confession. I love Star Wars, like superlove. Like so much so that I’m pretty sure I was a Queen in a past life, and perhaps that I’ve even given birth to twins at the hand of the Dark Lord in a galaxy far, far away. If you know my birth stories, you’ll know why I fully believe I possess the force.
I love Star Wars SO MUCH that my next tattoo is a half sleeve of 3 Russian Nesting Dolls, each with a different Star Wars character that will represent each of my children.
Proof that I gave birth to The Dark Lord:

Even more exciting is the fact that Styles is a supernerd too, and is quite possibly even more obsessed with Star Wars than I. He was a Clone Trooper in a past life. Or maybe Jar Jar Binks. Don’t tell him I said that.
I’m almost afraid to tell him about the toy unboxing happening across the world in an 18 hour, 15 city, 12 country, first-EVER YouTube event. Before you bumrush me for the info, make sure you’re following the Star Wars YouTube channel, then write all of this information on your favorite child’s forehead in permanent ink so you don’t forget:
