Live Long & Prosper: Happy 50th Anniversary Star Trek

startrek

So today marks the 50th anniversary of Star Trek and I wanted to create a lovely post in honor of it. I know I just talked about Star Trek on Sunday, but you can never have enough.

Now as you know, I am a diehard Star Wars fan. Many people ask me how can I love both Star Wars and Star Trek? How can I debase the fan base by loving the other too?

I don’t understand why it has to be either/or; and it shouldn’t be either/or. I’m loving both and if you have an issue with that, you best watch your step.

So of course I love this show because of the great stories and the awesome characters. They had just the perfect people working on this to make it the hit it is today. And of course, no celebration is complete without me counting off my favorite characters.

Of course, first of all there is Kirk. He’s always been my first and foremost favorite. A great leader, listener, friend, etc. Hard to get better.

Then we have the second member of this dream team, Spock. At first adhering to the rules and regulations of the Vulcan code; he eventually lets some of that culture slip to become a great friend; allowing his emotions in carrying for those others on the ship.

I also cannot get enough of how well he and Kirk (Nimoy & Shatner) play off each other. They are just perfect.

And last but not least in this team of perfection, Bones. Words cannot express how much I love his caring for Kirk and sassiness to Spock. He is sarcastic, pessimistic, and hilarious.

And then when you get him and Spock together! Watch out!

This show was a lot of fun, and I could go on and on, but I think I’d rather spend my time rewatching it.

Tired With a Capital T

im-back

Yes, GISHWHES is over and I’m back to blogging.

Double double yay

This year had some fun and crazy items to do. I did seven days of happiness, making a different person happy with a kind act every day. That was a lot of fun.

Went prospecting in a public fountain. And my friend and I played badminton in the mall food court for 30 mins without anyone even noticing. Everyone was too busy on their phones.

Phew!

Then we had to wear white and get red wine poured on us from a two story building.

ew! Gross Yuck

I taped coupons to five items in the store to help someone out, a coupon fairy.

I made postcards for William Shatner wishing he has joined us in GISHWHES.

Screamer: He's in Florida your majesty, he sent this postcard. Dracula: Hmmmm... [reading] 'Dear Drac, am having wonderful time in retirement, glad you're not here, Wolfy.' Bah! How dare he retire just before the Monster Road Rally? Doesn't he know all the monsters of my realm have to be in the race?"

Made a mural all about the wonderful Honeybees and what they do for us.

Did five chores for a mom who is overworked (in honor of Mr. Rogers). Serenaded a store employee who is overworked with a musical instrument I made myself.

Dressed up a a Jedi and went to get a root beer float at a ’50s diner.

I turned 15 people into robots! (their facebook pics).

I put a compilation of our team pics together, representing where we were from. I even used The Brady Bunch font for our names. (I hope they notice and give extra points!) For the people who didn’t give a photo I had to replace them with Misha Collins.

And I “buried” a person in popcorn in box (for the coffin, I couldn’t get a real one) in a mausoleum.

Dracula

And I did this all between my regular three jobs and donating my Saturday to a children’s free backpack fair. There was a lot more I wanted to do, but just ran out of time.

And that being said I am now tired. Tired with a capital T, which rhymes with P, which stands for pooped out.

But it was worth it. It was nice taking a week out and having this big adventure, doing all kinds of things you wouldn’t normally do.

Mal_huh Whoa Wow what

But now back to regular things like laundry, bills, repairs, cleaning, etc. You know all those things I ignored last week. That is…after a long nap…or reading.
