Can you tell what we were watching over Christmas break?

 

(My brother had his feet up on the arm of my chair)

Me: Move your feet. I need to put my arm there.

My Brother: I will not comply.

Me: You must comply. Resistance is futile.

My Brother: (Grin)

…and…

I’ve had this cold for about three weeks. I thought it was getting better, and then it got worse again. It’s like the super-mutant-cold-of-death. I really miss being able to breathe. So I’ve been feeling tired and run down. I didn’t do anything all weekend except knit and watch episodes of ST:DS9. And then I felt bad about myself for being a useless human being. And then I felt lonely. And then I had insomnia.

And this is pretty much a useless rant of a post.

But my brother is here now and he brought me apple cider.  Huzzah!

I don’t know if it has to do with being a Buddhist or if it’s a byproduct of my early exposure to Star Trek: TNG, but I have a thing for bald men.

I like reading Wil Wheaton’s blog, WWdn: In Exile.  It’s got all kinds of geeky goodness going on.  And, I think he has pretty much the best job ever: professional nerd.  In October he published his first volume of Memories of the Future, a humorous analysis/episode guide/reminiscence of his time on Star Trek: TNG.  The first volume chronicles the first half of the first season, with more volumes to come.

To add to the excitement, I’ve been listening to the Memories of the Futurecast, Wil’s podcast where he shares excerpts from the book.  If you’re a Trek fan I would highly recommend it.  It is extremely amusing.

Also, the best tea mug I have ever seen is now available.  Check it.

Yeah, those are totally the space jellyfish from Encounter at Farpoint.  It will be mine.

And finally, from an unrelated source, this hot t-shirt.

Ready?  Ready?

Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about.

Geekgasm is now complete.
