Fantastically Fun Fridays: September 9, 2011

Happy Friday!  We hope that those of you who started school this week had a great first week, and that for everyone in education, the semester is off to a great start!

Now, I know we linked to a Woot! shirt last week to celebrate the start of our Doctor Who series, but we're going to do it again this Friday because it fits so well with our "Back to School" theme this week:
Darth Vader Substitute Teacher
The Star Wars theme of the shirt also fits nicely with a lot of the links we have for you today:

  • See the more human side of Stormtroopers.  Here's what a Stormtrooper does on Sunday, and here's a (less heartwarming, but also funnier) look at what a Stormtrooper's "Take Your Daughter to Work Day" might look like. (Boingboing/Robot Chicken)
  • Planning a big Star Wars party?  Or just looking for a great way to chill out while you watch the movies?  Then you need these! (ThinkGeek)
  • These behind-the-scenes photos from the movies make the whole filming process look like so much fun. (Mental_floss)
  • This guy exists a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, boldly going where no one has gone before. (Blastr)
  • A deleted scene from The Empire Strikes Back that really adds to the Han/Leia dynamic. (EW)
  • Looking for a great Halloween costume for your baby?  These are pretty adorable. (ThinkGeek)
Have a great weekend, everyone!  May the Force be with you!
