Star Trek Movie

I won't give any spoilers, I promise!

However, if you haven't seen it yet (though there probably aren't too many left who would be interested), you REALLY need to see it!  One of the better movies I've seen in a long time!  Lots of action and really good acting.

The only thing I'm still trying to figure out is how (or if) they plan to match it up to everything that happened in the series!

With that an dinner, Rob and I had a very nice date before he goes and gets his daughter.

(Did I mention that is' 90 degrees right now and humid?  ugh...)


I need a stronger stomach...

I got my stitches out yesterday morning.  Keep in mind, Rob had to do all the cleaning and band aid changing for the last week since they took the wrapping off because the one time I saw it, I ended up with my head between my knees trying to not pass out.  I've never been good with anything of the like with myself (not much better with others, but at least a little - I could take care of Rob's gashed finger better than look at 2 surgical incisions with 1 stitch each in my knee).

So, needless to say, I was terrified, even though I knew it wouldn't hurt.  I also didn't know what else to expect from the Therapy eval, so I was nervous about that too.  Sadly, I've been there enough in the last year that my physical therapist (Lee), who used to be very professionaly curt, now jokes around with us and chit chats through the appointments.

He had a student from Bradley University with him yesterday, she was a pretty little redhead with freckles, and she was more nervous than I was.  Fortunately for both of us she wasn't taking out my stitches.  Lee had her taking history etc while he worked on that.  Unfortunately I felt the slightest little pinch and stopped answering her mid-word as everything around me swarmed for a second (Lee was smart and made me lay down first so there was no fear of falling).  He had them both out in just a couple minutes, but it took me over 5 to feel like the blood levels in my head were normal again.  And then I couldn't look at it at all.  Discovered that the hard way too...

I am scheduled to return to work on Monday.  While I'm looking forward to getting a known paycheck, I'm not excited.  Last time I went to work it led to needing surgery (that found nothing) because the swelling and pain got so bad.  State Farm is not known for not requiring a lot of walking during the day, and I can still pretty much walk the circle of the house once or twice before I'm down for an hour or so.

Here's hoping for Monday... and here's hoping my two little plus signs heal quickly so I can look at my knee again, not to mention wear pants instead of shorts (since that's required for work!).


Alive & Kicking

I know, it's shocking and a half... I remembered my LJ....

Honestly, it's not that I ever forgot it, more that I don't really have internet here at home anymore, and I just recently got a Blackberry, but I needed to reset my LJ password, and I wasn't about to try that through the BB.  For the time being, we have internet access through my phone, but we may cancel that plan soon to save some money.  Though it is nice to use a real keyboard from time to time.

Tons of things have changed and yet, nothing is overly "new" either. 

Thanks, Sweetheart, for passing this one on....

Now, the following will be the last paragraph of the article.  It doesn't really give anything away, but it's one of the best things I have read in YEARS... many of them...  Enough that after I post this I'm off to subscribe to his column.

From Mark Morford's
"Jesus loves 'His Dark Materials:
Shrill Bible-thumpers boycott 'The Golden Compass'; world's children grin devilishy"

It goes like this: If your ancient, authoritarian, immutable belief system is truly threatened by a handful of popular novels, if your ostensibly all-powerful, unyielding creed is rendered meek and defenseless when faced with the story of a fiery, rebellious young girl who effortlessly rejects your stiff misogynistic religiosity in favor of adventure, love, sex, the ability to discover and define her soul on her own terms, well, it might be time for you to roll it all up and shut it all down and crawl back home, and let the divine breathe and move and dance as she sees fit. Don't you agree?

Link to the full article.  Please go read it... it's wonderful, amusing, engaging, holds nothing back, and is, all-in-all, something I agree with.

Happy, Happy!!

Happy Birthday to one of my earliest pseudo big brothers... phoenix_blue!!

Hope you have a great one!! 

*lots of hugs*

4PM I'd Like to Push Another Boulder Up a Different Hill

Employee #1: If you want to send me your resume, I'll see if they're looking to hire designers. I think they are.
Employee #2: Does the place resemble Hell?
Employee #1: You mean like here?
Employee #2: Yeah. Like, if it's a few shades lighter red, and about half the amount of writhing souls, I'd be interested.

There is nothing that can make you laugh quite like a child pealing with laughter. 

...And there is nothing that brings about that laughter quite like Mah na mah na.... (other than the fact that she's the most ticklish being I've ever met...)

(Thanks Katy for reminding me I had the file... she saw your yip yip aliens icon and started giggling, which made me think of it! lol, go figure)



...comes from strange locations sometimes. 

I was outside checking out the storm tonight and it occurred to me that it was a near perfect setting for Thriller.  However, the first thing that came into my head while looking around was By the prickling of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.

Next thing I knew was I had discarded all the chores I planned to get done tonight and had 5 pages of paper in front of me waiting to be written on and my pen.  I figured I'd get the scene out and it would be done.

*laughs* I should know better.

About 4.5 or so hours and two trips for paper later, I had written 11 pages and an entire chapter.

I'm quite pleased.  My hand/wrist hurt, but I am quite pleased.
Ok, it was fun... I admit it...

Your home is a

Magic Muse's Castle

Your kitchen is manned by a team of Keebler Drow Elves. There's a pantry stocked with beef jerky. Oh, and deer jerky. Your master bedroom has a bedside table with a pad for writing down late-night inspirations. Your study has every fantasy novel ever written, including multiple editions of the Silmarillion and advance copies of Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition. One of your garages houses your Hummer, and others contain your H2, and H3... with room for an H4, if they ever invent one.

Your home also includes a gallery of your favorite works -- the originals, of course. Your guests enjoy your home theater with hi-def plasma screen TV, and the thrones you watch it from. Outside is the moat that protects your home from goblin invaders and extended family.

And, you have a pet -- a cat named "Vincent".

Below is a snippet of the blueprints:
