Two of the things I'm a giant Nerd about in ONE ITEM! Why, oh why don't I have $700 lying around?!?
domino43: (ST:TNG - Data is awesome)
I've been watching some TNG lately. Yesterday I watched "The Naked Now", today I've watched "In Theory", "Q-pid and "Birthright, Part 1" I'll have to get to "Part 2" tomorrow. The geeking out over Data with [livejournal.com profile] abrynne made me want to watch "The Naked Now" and "In Theory". Drunk Data is funny. "If you prick me, do I not...leak?" And Picard and Dr. Crusher. lol

PICARD: Beverly.
CRUSHER: Yes, Jean-Luc?
PICARD: You will address me as 'Captain'.
CRUSHER: Captain? Well then, my dear Captain, you will address me as Chief Medical Officer or Doctor.
PICARD: I will? *snap* That's true. I started out by calling you Beverly and naturally you *exhale* I'm still not thinking straight.

Oh, drunk Picard...

And Data trying to have a girlfriend (In Theory). Hilarity ensues. His attempt at being smooth then starting a fight. Oh Data, will you ever learn?

"Birthright" I started watching just because as I was watching "Q-pid" I was looking at/remembering Vash on DS9. That made me think of Bashir, so I went looking for Bashir on the Enterprise-D.

God, I could geek out about Star Trek all day.

OOH! I just realized that Data used a contraction in "The Naked Now". Beginning of the first season mistakes are so fun to find.

I would have done this yesterday, but I got distracted and didn't get over to LJ until about 15 minutes before brother got home.

Not really feeling all that great today. My toe is severely infected again. Dad has surgery to remove a lump on his head (just a calcium deposit on his forehead, nothing serious) on Friday and I'm going to drive him home afterward. Since I'll have, like, five hours I'm going to their ER (NOT the one I've been going to) to see what they'll be able to do. They're a good hospital and not incompetent like my local hospital. Hopefully they'll take care of it. They usually have specialists they can call in day or night to do stuff. *fingers crossed*

Star Trek was AWESOME! Much better than I expected. Bravo Chris Pine, you proved me wrong. My favorite part was McCoy chasing Kirk around giving him injections. Needed more Scotty. And old Spock.

Wolverine... It was good for what it was, but I wasn't as impressed as with the other three. And that says a lot, since I wasn't a giant fan of X3. The whole Deadpool thing bothered me. But I may just be a big nerd. And since when could ALL mutants easily clamber up walls like there was basically no gravity? Sabertooth, okay. But Gambit? Really? Being able to control energy makes you able to run up a wall like nothing? Wish I'd known that.

Sorry, I'd have more comprehensive reviews, but brother will be back soon and I need to get off here pretty quick when he does. Hopefully I'll get more of a chance to be on tomorrow, as I've got a little bit to vent about. We'll see.

My God, I absolutely LURVE this video. ♥

It's got everything. Relaxed and happy George (with family and friends!), George playing slide, his famous Elvis impersonation... I love the end shot where he picks up the guitar (more than I probably should). And it's just a great song.

SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!eleventy-one!! [/fangirl] (bah. where's my "squee"ing Dhani icon when I need it?)
I have NEVER seen this video. WHY?

I just love that entire album. *sigh*

Before anything else, I'd like to wish a (somewhat late) Happy Birthday to Ranger.

Been a long boring week. Though, I have read three books this week. Two just yesterday alone. Over Tuesday and Wednesday (as I mentioned in the last post) I read The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. When I opened it I realized that I was supposed to have read it in H.S. as there were notes about the story written, by me, on the front page. I guess I skipped it b/c as I read it, I certainly didn't remember it. But then, I did that with a lot of our books in English, just listened really well in class and used that stuff for the tests.

Wednesday late, I had started to re-read Star Trek: The New Voyages 2. It's a collection of short stories (a few poems/other things) written by ST fans. It's from, like, 1977 or something, so it deals only with TOS, but it's a GREAT read for any TOS fan. If you can find it, read it. The story "The Procrustean Petard" is especially interesting.
Anyway, I had only read the intro to the first story and the first couple pages before I had to stop.

Thursday I spent the day with Dad. Was gonna help him with some of his work, but he ended up not doing it. He has to wait until tomorrow. But I did help him get a rough estimate for a gutter cover job. So he should be doing that sometime in the next couple weeks. YAY!

Yesterday I spent all day reading. Finished New Voyages 2 and also read all of The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder. Not bad. Nice short book. Not too involved, but you do get to know the charachters. Next I plan to read Dubliners by James Joyce. When I dug it out, I found that I had already read the first piece in it (bookmark was at the second piece), but since I don't rememeber it, I'm going to start all over again.

Spent all day today (b/4 getting online at about 5:30) watching Star Trek TOS. Funny, last night I had a TOS dream. Don't really remember much of it. All I remember is that I was on the bridge and I heard Kirk say something about Corbomite. At first, today, I thought it was about the epi "The Corbomite Maneuver", but when that epi came on today, I realized that I had clearly seen Checkov sitting at Navigation and he wasn't a part of the crew of The Enterprise yet during that epi. I also remember there being some discussion of trying to maneuver out of firing range of some other ship, so maybe seeing that TCM was going to be on the night before, my brain decided to make it a physical strategic maneuver. I just wish I could remember the rest of it.

I want another ST dream. Or maybe a M*A*S*H dream. That would be nice.

and onto the quizzes... )
