I took a walk to the ocean today. It was sunny and I ate an apple while I walked. I saw a hovercraft, which, if you don't know, is a boat that sounds like it would be very space-aged and sleek but in reality looks very bulbous and clunky. I also saw a "Limited Edition Indiana Jones" Diet Dr. Pepper can that had been cast off into the dunes. Did they even notice Harrison Ford and his bull whip?


Peter Mayhew is 64 today. He has played Chewbacca for 31 years. Chewbacca is a wookiee from a planet called Kashyyyk, and the co-pilot of the fastest ship in the galaxy. He is so popular that Pepperidge Farm named a cookie after him. They were called "Wookie Cookies" and tasted buttery like shortbreads.
