Star Trek, fmylife.com, etc.
Part 1: Star Trek
That movie ruled. Seriously. I think I had about 6 favorite characters, which included Bones, Chekhov, Sulu, Kirk, Spock and Spock Prime. It was enjoyable to say the least and extraordinary to say the most. As my father said, it kept just enough hokey to please die hard Trekkies and the acting and effects were good enough to indoctrinate new Trekkies, among which I count myself now. I now find Anton Yelchin as quite an amiable fellow. (Pardon my speech, I am currently watching Sense and Sensibility with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslett.) Anywho, I also love the fact that many of the actors branch over from different excessively geeky fandoms, like Karl Urban, who plays both Bones and Eomer. And then there's John Cho, who can be seen as Harold from Harold and Kumar and as Sulu. I think the most exemplary example is Zachary Quinto, who is Spock and Sylar. What I think is funny is the fact that this is his first major film role, and it's an amazing first role. Also, my favorite phrase that has to do with this film was what my father said when you see the first shot of the Enterprise, which was "Geek orgasm coming up." And I had to agree.
Part 2: Fmylife.com
I am addicted to this website. BUT there are some things I don't agree with, like the fml's that say things that are geeky turn into fmls. Like one when a person said Accio to have a book come to them, and that's a bad thing. I think that people should allow their geekitude to shine through, and it is not a negative in the slightest. But sometimes, a little schadenfreude can't go amiss. But as long as people find the traits of a geek to be negative, geeks will still be persecuted and teased, and that can't help the self esteem. I think that the approach that should be taken is the one in Eureka, that lovely show on the Sci Fi channel.
Part 3: Etc.
Now it's time for random thoughts.
I want a dog. It would be so nice to have a dog to cuddle after I get home from work. Plus, I would love to take it on walks and play fetch and such. Here's another random thing, I think Alan Rickman is actually fairly attractive in a creepy way. Now I have stuff I need to get to get done. BYE. Two days until I get my hair cut!
