The best possible ending to 2012

I just discovered this Star Trek: The Next Generation gag reel from season 2 (I think).  As if I needed another reason to love Star Trek.  I’ve watched it twice tonight.  SO GOOD.

“Yes! A thousand times, yes!”

The proper response: “Make it so.”  Obviously.  I hope Boyfriend does something like this if/when he proposes.  And he will, assuming he knows me at all.

Y’know what’s awesome? Star Trek: TNG.

I used to watch Star Trek: The Next Generation with my dad all the time growing up, especially if mom was out of town on business.  He would make chicken adobo (his ‘signature dish’), and we would sit down on the floor of the TV room and watch TNG until homework or bedtime.  It was the best.

Last month, I discovered a Twitter feed called TNG_S8 that tweets the plot summaries of the fictitiously “unaired” season 8 episodes of TNG.  HILARIOUS.

This show is so awesome.  They worked so hard to stay close to scientific fact, even when discussing stuff like black holes and warp speeds.  It’s pretty impressive.  I just love it.  I can’t believe a show about space exploration and scientific discovery lasted a whole seven seasons in prime time.  It warms the cockles of my heart.

I spent a good chunk of the winter break while I was sick lying on the couch watching the entire series on Netflix; time well spent.

When nerds collide

Remember when I got asked to blog for a website about comics?  Turns out they didn’t exactly, how do you say… have their shit together.  I would submit a blog, and weeks later, it still wouldn’t be on the website.  This happened a few times before I stopped submitting ideas.  I gave them a blog after they sent me to ComiCon; it’s still not up, and I’ve given up on expecting anything of mine to ever go on their website again.  So sad.  I was really excited about that, and the people were cool.  In fact, they were extremely warm and seemed almost as excited as I was to join the team.  It’s too bad it didn’t work out.  But I lived the dream, for a short time.  And I’m happy about that.

I was also on one of their radio shows.  I don’t come across as too noobish, and I’m happy about that.  All they really do is ask me about the KickAss [comic] contest, and martial arts in general.  Overall, I’m pretty happy with the result.  I’m only in the first fifteen minutes of the cast, which is perfect.  I don’t think I could stand hearing more of myself than that at a time.  I had only been awake for about twenty minutes at the time, so I sound a little husky (Lauren Bacall, woot!).

hey look, it's me and Diminutive Roommate

I just found the email I sent to my friends announcing the publication of my first blog.  *sigh*  Memories.  I was so fucking excited.  Everyone was so supportive.  And that post was pretty good!  So I’ve decided to publish the blogs that were (and were not) published on the comics website here.  Get ready for a quick injection of a whole lotta nerd-speak.
