as a child, my mother introduced me something i would later grow up to geek on about with fangirly glee: star trek. i was weaned on gene roddenberry's original dream and i swear that james kirk is my real dad (or so i probably wished). as a teenager, living with my mother and grandmother, i ditched church on a sunday morning once i turned 16 for two reasons: the first being that i was 16 and was legally permitted to make my own decisions and the second being that star trek was on the tv. i even dated a star trek geek who had the ENTIRE series of star trek: the next generation on vhs in his bedroom!

i've seen all the star trek movies ever made, but only the last few in the cinema. i was vastly disappointed with all the TNG films (with the exception of first contact), even nemesis and it made me cry! so when i first heard about star trek i was of course, scared. i know that it's just a television show, but i knew all about these characters, and here was someone coming along and attempting to retell it for me: of course i was apprehensive. anyway....

i plan to see it again.

this place is really cool. kinda reminds me what lj was like back in the early days, when it was for all the cool kids to hang out and be cool.

[ insert period of time since this entry was begun ]

who remembers the animaniacs? i really miss that show. it was by far my favourite cartoon when i was a teenager. i've got some of the songs from the show on a cd, which i'm currently listneing to and belly laughing softly because it hurts my throat to be loud. are there dvds available? if there are, i must hunt them down and purchase them and introduce the monkey to them. and the bonus: there's actually education in the damned show! it's a bunch of idiots being idiots and making education so much fun it actually hurts! there's the "hello song" which i'm listening to right now, which lists all the various ways people say "hello" all across the globe. my favourite will always be "magellin" because it's just a brilliant little piece of musical history, and despite the fact that it was a pretty nasty tale, they made it fun. simply: i don't have anything bad to say about the animaniacs right now because i haven't seen it for years. :)

with luck, tonight i'll be sitting in a dark dark room in a super comfy chair with some popcorn and maybe maltesers or jaffas and hopefully a glass of red wine, watching with wide eyed wonder, school girlish joy and first night jitters: star trek xi. i've been very good with avoiding the spoilers for this film, except for this one bit regarding the music in the closing credits care of pvp online (which i'm not happy about, but can't wait for!). i just know i'm going to either cry with joy or pain when it's over and i may or may not applaud.

i'm most worried about the revisiting of my two favourite characters. i'm also scared about what they've done to the canon; did they just throw it out the window the way they did for "enterprise" (which thankfully doesn't actually carry the "star trek" prefix and is therefore (in my opinion) not technically part of the canon); did they 'tweak' it for their own benefit to make it 'popular' for the 'cool kids'. the fact that they've got jj abrams on board kind of makes me squee a little, but fear as well. quinto looks like a youthful nimoy, pine will have to be fecking brilliant to convince me (i'm also amused by how close his name is to the original captain of the enterprise: chris(topher) pike - oh yeah, there's my geek right there!), and i'm still dubious about karl urban as bones.

let's just say this: 9pm can't come quick enough right now.

til next....

why is it i find myself wanting things i know i can't have? [ sigh ]

in other things:

i lost my iriver at uni yesterday. this morning the lecture room i believe it to have been lost in (as i only have one lecture room) has a sign stating the loss of an iriver the same colour as mine. i call the number out of curiosity and the person on the other end claims to have lost their iriver last semester. i inform them the sign was not there yesterday. they don't understand that part of the story, but stick to the statement. fair enough.

i'm annoyed at losing the damn thing, but it's not my biggest worry. i can always get another one if i choose to. i'm more pissed at the fact that it looks to have been lifted out of my bag while i was focusing on the content of the lecture. even more pissed at the fact the person who did it had to delve underneath my seat a fair way (my bag was between my legs) in order to get it. i shall also be pissed at my own stupidity if it turns out i managed to knock it out of my bag and just left it behind.

i don't see how the damn thing could be useful to the person who now has it. all the peripherals are here in my house. unless you already own one and are looking for a spare, the only way this thing could be of any use to you is if you're planning to sell it on ebay. i'd like to know who would buy an iRiver H10 20gb mp3 player WITHOUT charger and usb cable?

that thing has caused me nothing but problems since i bought it! it spent 6 weeks in melbourne getting repaired (and then there was the huge stuff around!) because the slider quit working after 2 months of ownership. the receipt/warranty went missing 1 month after ownership. i've had to reset the damn thing a million times because its favourite past-time was 'freeze'. i'm almost glad to be rid of it! but at the same time, that was around $400 i worked my arse off to earn to treat myself to it.

well, i'm just glad it wasn't my bike. or my calculator. or my wallet. or my house keys.

til next....
