    So if you're not a Star Wars fan (and really, how could you not be?)... here's the back-info:

    "May 4 is called Star Wars Day (also sometimes known as Luke Skywalker Day) because of the popularity of a common pun spoken on this day.... "May the fourth be with you".

    'May the Force be with you' was a phrase used to wish luck or good will, generally when individuals parted ways or the object of the expression was facing some sort of imminent challenge. The phrase implied the speaker's wish that the power of the Force would be working alongside the addressee, in order that the addressee's goals would be more effectively accomplished.... Current day Star Wars fans were not the first to introduce the line "May the Fourth Be with You"; When Margaret Thatcher was elected Britain's first female Prime Minister on May 4, 1979, her party placed an advertisement in The London Evening News that said: "May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations."

    In 2011, the first organized celebration of Star Wars Day took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada [YAY, TORONTO!!] at the Toronto Underground Cinema.... The second annual edition is scheduled to take place on Friday, May 4, 2012.

    If you need a little more motivation today, look no farther than wise, old Yoda:

    "Always pass on what you have learned."

    "Named must your fear be before banish it you can."

    "You will find only what you bring in."

    "When 900 years old you reach, look as good you will not ehh." - Yoda

    and of course, the most famous and wisest of all Yoda-isms:
    "Try not. Do or do not, there is no try."

    and now... for this laugh-out-loud commercial break...

    We really do need some Storm Trooper or lightsaber emoticons... sigh.
