I missed my LJ anniversary yesterday!

15 years, dears. 5 years at chibicelchan and almost 10 here.





I had a successful geek moment. I was reading the novelization of Relics, and in it, one of the characters in 2294 was talking about how he never wanted to be on a Constitution-Class starship like his friends.

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. 


Chekov was barely in any of the promos. Chekov's poster was one of the last ones to come out.

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.



I made all my old entries private, just because I was too lazy to go through one by one and individually mess with each and every of the thousands of entries. Ehhhhhhh laziness.

IF there was an older entry that I made private and you want to see it, lemme know! <3 
"Donald Trump's ideas aren't just different, they're dangerously incoherent. They're not even really ideas, just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies. He is not just unprepared, he is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability and immense responsibility"

"From which company would you buy a self-driving car?"

My answer:

"Knight Industries."

Only Richard Basehart can make my dreams come true. ;o;

A curious reverie

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!"


THAT's what I forgot!

I missed my 14th LJ anniversary! I began my old account on July 23, 2001, this one in late 2006. Of course I consider July 23 to be the big anniversary date because all I did was switch accounts.

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."

Puffball Mushroom

My dad wanted to go out and take a picture of a strange plant in the yard. He brought in his camera and showed it to me, exclaiming, "That's no moon!"

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?!?!?"

"A puffball."

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.
