The Relief Of Ackbar

Long have I been a fan of the original Star Wars trilogy. The new trilogy is ok, but really, the original is best. And for nearly as long as I have watched these movies, there is a scene in Return Of The Jedi where a look of relief crosses the face of Admiral Ackbar as the Star Destroyer Executor is destroyed. Long have I sympathized with the expressions on his puppet-like face as I too have come through a major trial. Don't know what I'm talking about? Have a look:

1) The moment of triumph:

2) The sigh of relief:

3) The chance to lean back and relax a bit:

I recently ended a long task at work that has caused me much stress and taken much of my free time from me. So, when I completed this task, I again found myself empathizing with Ackbar.

The really good news about this is that this work has kept me from blogging... until now! This is my second post in less than a week's time. That's like a record or something!

Ackbar's "lean-back-and-relax" face looks an awful lot like his "moment of triumph" face.

Crystal:

ok, so I am a little slow at reading your blog, I have to admit this is the first time I have looked at it since you first put it up. Anyway, you and Ackbar have some of the same expressions. Maybe you could take pictures of yourself and all your expressions with captions of what they mean, you could put it in a little book that I could refer back to.
