I think most of you know I'm a Star Trek fan. In my original blog at ohdawno.org I posted about a couple trips to Vegas for the big convention at the Hilton. We're going back this year for the 40th Anniversary con, should be fun. And, no, I don't dress up.
Anyway, the other day I was sitting innocently at my desk when the SO sends me a link to a YouTube video of Patrick Stewart singing to Gene Roddenberry which made me laugh out loud in my office - and I had the door open...the peeps in the cubes outside didn't say anything so I hope I didn't disturb them. When it was over I saw another Star Trek themed video in the side bar and I wanted to share it with you. It's called Star Trek Cribs - The Director's Cut.

Nothing much else to say - I picked up my new glasses today - got two pair. One has pewter colored metal half frames but they're at the bottom and that appealed to my sense of whimsy - also since the glasses are primarily for reading when I need to look up over them there's no frame in the way. They have graduated lenses but the distance portion of the lens is pretty thin since the lens itself isn't very tall. The other pair are full black frames but with some white detail and they looked classy. I got them both because I couldn't decide which pair I liked more.
The SO came with to the mall to pick them up. While walking to Lens Crafters we looked at some new VAIO laptops at the Sony Store (didn't see one I had to have) and bought some stuff for the kitchen at Williams Sonoma - I needed a knife block and a pair of plastic tongs, what I ended up with were metal but with rubberized tips - this is so I won't scratch the coated rollers on my hotdog machine.That was one of my Christmas gifts last year. I don't like fried or nuked hotdogs and the SO doesn't like them boiled so when I saw this in Fry's last year I told him I thought it was cool.
I also spent a lot of time today organizing my playlist and bought some new tunes for the iPod. Got a Gary Puckett and the Union Gap album and a Jefferson Starship album...couple of singles...I deleted a bunch of Sinatra and Dean Martin - need to go back to the library and be more selective - there were lots of duplicates, Christmas Music...I'll shape that list up and reload them.
My daughter of the Bees and Bears Shouldn't Teleport blog is visiting next week - I'm sooooo happy!! Of course I need to clean things up in her room, uh, it got used a bit as a place to toss some stuff...I promise, sweetie, I'll get it all out of there so you can find the bed! It will be nice not having the 'empty nest' for a week.
I've got a post in draft that is serious and semi-political, I just got inspired and felt like it was time to say something about how I feel...that's the teaser - you'll have to watch for it. If you want to know when I've blogged, well, you can subscribe to my blog with Feedblitz or put me on a Technorati Favorites list. Check out the sidebar.
Don't forget that AW still needs your support - even though the forum is back up while it was down there was no site income to support the bills!
