I am having a Star Trek (TOS) Movie Marathon today. I am currently on The Wrath of Khan. This is the best Trek movie ever.

Tomorrow I'll be starting my TNG Marathon, which will promptly followed (or, rather, overlapped at the end) by DS9. Then the TNG movies. And finally NuTrek. I can't wait! It's going to take at least a month, but it will be epic and nerdy and just plain awesome. XD

Having a TOS marathon today. I'm just finishing Season 1, episode 7 "What are Little Girls Made Of" and about to start episode 8 "Miri". I plan on going through all 3 seasons. I think I'll be having a week-long marathon.

Hopefully, before too long I'll be able to marathon TNG.

Finally, an AWESOME question!

Unfortunately, I can't decide! I absolutely LOVE every single person on TOS. Although, I pretty much am McCoy.

And TNG and DS9? Okay, I pretty much love everyone on those shows too.

I don't care about VOY much, um...B'Elanna?

And, pray, let us not speak of that other... abomination.

I'm going to start off with something good.

A couple nights ago I had a strange dream. I was in what appeared to be a motor home with a bunch of people, some of whom were ST Reboot cast members. We were rehearsing what had to have been a scene from the sequel. We arrived at some building where we were helping with the writing/characterizations for the sequel. It was a school, I think. We had lockers in the hall and there were school desks in the room we were in. Everyone was sharing desks because there were only a few. In fact, I was sharing with Zachary Quinto and I-can't-remember-who. We were all talking about scenes or characters while one of the writers, or maybe it was J.J., stood there just taking it all in. I was squeezed onto the end of our desk until I realized the desk in front of us was free, so I moved there and turned around to continue my conversation with ZQ & Whomever. The really strange thing was I couldn't figure out who I was supposed to be. During our rehearsal in the motor home I specifically remember being called "Number One". But then, when we were in the room, I got the distinct feeling that I was supposed to be Spock. Which was part of the reason I was working with ZQ. But I was still female. The best I can figure is I was part of a weird mirror/alternate universe where Spock was a woman and Kirk called her "Number One", like the original first officer in "The Cage". I'm still puzzled. But I will FREAK OUT if the any of the Reboot sequels has a mirror/AU at all like that.


And OMG, the wank. Seriously. Why do some people have to take a perfectly nice community and ruin it with their wank? A mod should NOT act like that. You're a Moderator, not a Dictator. You're there to moderate. No one was harming anyone. A quiet, kind word would have gotten a better effect that your rude demands.

On a related note, I am now the maintainer/co-mod of a new community: [ profile] conan_unrated. You know, I actually like being a mod. maybe it's because the two places I mod are fun. And Conan related. :)

I did a couple things earlier, like I said, but then I went and took a nap. I had lunch after I woke up.

My arms have sore spots from my shots. Boo. :(

What the heck was I going to say that I made a point of saying i would post later...? Oh well. I'll just continue.

Alright, I'm going to admit it and then hide. I am a bad Trek fan. Last night was the first time I've ever seen all of Nemesis. *hides in shame* I've still not seen most of First Contact or all of Insurrection either. I still can't get over the fact that they killed Data.

Oh! The boys are going to be a part of this program the Sheriff's Department does for Christmas. It's this Saturday. It's called "The North Pole Patrol" or "Shop with a Cop". They're going to go to Wal-Mart and each get a $100 gift card and then go with a cop to go shopping. The cops take the kids to be sure parents don't spend the money on themselves. They have to buy things they NEED first (in their case some socks and jammies) and then they can get toys. They're really excited.

Still can't think of what I was originally going to say. If I remember, I'll come back and post it.

Oh, Brent Spiner, this is why I love you.

Just sitting here waiting for my popcorn, reading. Strike that. Just pulled my popcorn out of the microwave and waiting for laundry to finish so I can switch it over to the dryer and reading.

Speaking of, since Friday afternoon I've read Home is the Hunter(Star Trek #52) by Dana Kramer-Rolls and 2/3 of My Sweet Audrina by V.C. Andrews. I realized earlier this weekend that when I have nothing better to do and new/interesting books that I'm a voracious reader. I would actually be done with both books, but I'm also reading [ profile] abrynne's book. A little over half done with that one, since I can only read it when I'm on the computer.

I had to re-read Home is the Hunter. We used to have it and I'd read it years ago, when it was a newer book, and have always liked it. One of these days when I get money, I need to buy a copy so I can have one of my own.

As for My Sweet Audrina, I'm liking it so far. I already know the gist of the book, so nothing is really a surprise, but it seems to be unfolding nicely.

Next on my list of books is more V.C. Andrews. I think I'll go with the Dollanger Saga first, then the Logan Series. We'll see after that. I may just go ahead and read ALL the V.C. Andrews books, even though most of them are ghost-written.

Also, since Friday, I've been taking Prednisone. Guh, I hate how hungry this stuff makes me. I've been doing a pretty decent job of not giving in to the hunger. Don't know how long I can keep that up. Luckily I'm only on it for 2 weeks.

Anyway, back to reading [ profile] abrynne's book while I wait for the washer to finish and polish off the rest of my popcorn.
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 [ 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.

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... )
