And I'm like... they didn't still use Constitution-class ships in 2294. There's no way.
So I pop over to Memory Alpha and BAM, I'm right! 2250s-2270s. And the weird possible refit from the 2270s or 80s a la the new ent from TMP. (And MAYBE the enterprise-A, I don't know)
So I GUESS maybe the guy is in his 40s or something and wanted to be on a constitution class ship as a kid. But I DON'T KNOW. The way it was worded... eeeennnh.
Other stuff in the book is great, at the beginning Scotty is literally reading a book called "The Laws of Physics". LOL GET IT.
I guess the long and short of it is that if you're actually knowledgeable about Trek, reading shit is fun.
Me, joking to my dad: "They're gonna kill him off, just watch. To show how dire the situation is, they're gonna kill Chekov."
Anton Yelchin died today.
IF there was an older entry that I made private and you want to see it, lemme know! <3
"From which company would you buy a self-driving car?"
Only Richard Basehart can make my dreams come true. ;o;
Dammit, I had such a lovely dream about VTTBOTS that I don't know how I will document it without losing some of the awesomeness... but document it I must.( Party BoatCollapse )
Anyhoo. I strongly strongly doubt that I'll ever write this as a proper fic because the terminology alone would end it right there. But I'm really pleased that at least in my subconscious, everyone stays mostly in character! That's never happened before.
Tomodachi Life threw me a party, awwwww. And Diane said, "You're 31? No way! You look so much younger!"
THANK YOU BLOCK OF PIXELS. 😭
Fewer people are using LJ than were last year (er... probably) and a lot of days I can't even remember to post. But LJ is still my home and I'll stay here until they kick me out. <3
"Frank the goat appreciates your call."
IT SURE LOOKED LIKE THE MOON. A huge round, white thing that looks like a golfball.
"What is it?!? Are you sure it's not a bug's nest?! What IS it?!?!?"
Googled it. Sure enough, it's a Puffball Mushroom. They can grow to immense size and are highly prized by mushroom... enthusiasts. Who knows how we got one growing in our yard.
Just a few:
*Weird crockpot bean stew. With 16 bean soup mix, beef stew flavoring, carrots, celery and fake meat (the Chinese "vegetarian duck" stuff in the blue cans). This one was super good.
*Weird crockpot soup WITHOUT beans. Just carrots, celery, tomatoes, beef stew flavoring and something else. If I was smart, I would have added potatoes, but I didn't. I added way too many tomatoes and it was pretty bland. So I didn't finish it.
*Pasta with alfredo sauce mixed with tomatoes. Usually it's either/or. Alfredo OR tomatoes on pasta. Na. Mix 'em both.
*Macaroni and cheese with tomatoes mixed in. Same basic idea as above.
-Veggie burgers with salad mix on top. Like even the salad mix with carrots, bitter greens, whatever. It's an easy way to add vegetables.
*Iced coffee with ice cream. The more stuff in the ice cream (cookie bits, chocolate bits, peanut butter, caramel), the better. It all melts together into a really delicious cold Starbucks-like creamy delight.
*Peach lassi! Peaches, plain yogurt, lemon juice, a tiny bit of sugar (which is totally optional). Blend it all up. SO DELICIOUS.
*Cookies and cream yogurt smoothie. Just dump a cookie, some yogurt (even plain!) and a little chocolate syrup in, blend it up. The yogurt makes it not so overpoweringly sweet and it's really really nice.
So, the doctor put me on both clonazepam AND lithium. As a result, I'm calmer. I can already see a big difference between how I feel the last few days, and the way I felt up to now. It's no miracle, but it is a big improvement.
If they do take VTTBOTS off, I will be reduced to a whimpering blob that can do nothing but say, "Chip" over and over again during the midnight hour :( :( :(
YESSS. I'm not crying, I'm leaking.
So, let's see. Smith was born in 1945, they left in 1997, making him 52. He looks to be 80 something here. So... 2027 or so? DON'T RAIN ON MY HEADCANON. They spend their sunset years bickering, mooching off the Robinson kids (who are now in their 40s) and watching the two moons in the sky like Luke Skywalker. :D
Isn't it funny how I obsess over characters' fates so much more now than I used to? I never cared to speculate on what happened to M*A*S*H characters because it was too depressing. Same with PR. I guess I realized somewhere along the way that headcanon is a wonderful thing, and keeps you from sitting up all night crying over an injustice done to your fave. Like sane, regular people do.
Also, today Angela Cartwright, LITTLE PENNY, became a grandmother. ;_;
UM, okay, 1967 Jonathan Harris, this is not fair of you, okay. It's really not fair of you to be THIS hot, but to keep it a big freaking secret except for like, a few scenes in a few episodes of season one. So then I'll be innocently scrolling along and come to this photo and DROP DEAD.
But, okay, mission accomplished, Celly's too-too solid ovaries have FUCKING MELTED now, thanks. Granted, I wasn't using them.
You may also be surprised to find out how many of these are actually accurate.
Well, that's enough reminiscing. If you'll excuse me, I'm off to go chug from Dr. Smith's still!
...No, I wish I was, because that would mean two very significant changes have taken place:
*Lost in Space is real
*I have booze!
Never mind, though. Happy 2014, folks! <3
- Current Mood: calm
There were countless times that Finn thrust a dagger into my feels, even despite him being like the douchiest character ever. Or perhaps BECAUSE he was the douchiest character ever. Because Monteith made you believe that he was. That's hard to do, isn't it? Playing a character that is unlikable? A character that makes horrendous decisions and yet believes in himself wholeheartedly? Cory Monteith never faltered. He never took the easy route. He played Finn Hudson as the most flawed character on the show, and he made it into an art. And you loved Monteith every bit as much as you hated Finn.
I can only imagine the role that the crap behind the scenes of season 4 played in this tragedy. And I remember how I felt when he entered rehab, and I realized that he had played through so many episodes while struggling with addiction. But it never showed. EVER. None of us saw the pain, because it wasn't Finn's pain. It was Cory's, and thus couldn't be neatly wrapped up by the end of the episode with a lavish musical number.
The simple truth is that no matter how great or how putridly awful the Glee scripts were, he sold them like a motherfucker. And when he wasn't there, you felt a great, great disturbance in the force. Everything suffered. The show cannot and will not recover from this blow... nor should it even try.
Geordi: Not much to tell. I only knew her for about 6 episodes before she died. Oh... except this one time, we all got REALLY DRUNK. She borrowed Deanna's clothes so she could go seduce the robot. Man. Shit was WILD back then!
Geordi. But you don't have to take MY word for it.
