Star Trek has never really been my schtick although I will admit to having a small crush on Jerri Ryan from Voyageur.
Hallo lovelies! Well I’m just getting back from a small family vacay, so I’m fairly exhausted. As a result, this toss up came from Mr. Kelpie. I’ll give my (limited) opinion on it, but I’ll also give you his. 🙂
I really have no vested interest in either one of these massive franchises. The older Star Wars movies were never something I was into-I was an Indiana Jones kinda kid. Same with the older Star Trek stuff.
But the newer stuff, is have to go with Star Trek. The Star Wars movies, despite having some really great actors, just seem weird and forced. The trek movies actually entertain me while Wars Anita’s the ever loving crap out of me.
Mr. Kelpie’s Choice
Star Wars is more fantasy than sci Fi because of the jedis, while Star trek is more scientific because they have no special powers outside of…

Just a reminder. Today is the last day. Your Fairy tale is due tonight at midnight CST.
I don’t know if I’ll have ten, really, but I have a few :D.
1. A new contract! Woot!
2. The event which lead to said new contract, lmao.
3. Cooler weather.
5. Lunch out with family and friends.
6. Shopping with my son wherein he is going to spend his OWN money on clothes. HUGE milestone *snicker*.
7. Early morning phone calls with the other son.
8. Reading, and replying to, your posts m’dear.
I think that’s it. I had more than I thought.
I have to say, this week hasn’t been so interesting since I’ve been hiding inside for most of it. This heat is just too much for me! I’m in the process now of organising my trip home for August – never thought I’d say I miss British summertime! Also pretty irritated that I missed Solstice again but c’est la vie I suppose.
Let’s get to the smile-inducing things…
1: Saving a chicken from a plastic bag. Poor little guy, you should always pick up your litter!
2: Food shopping, enough to completely fill up our fridge. Nothing makes me happier than wandering around shops throwing fruit and veg into the trolley. Am I getting old? Probably. Do I care? Not in the slightest!
3: Gummy baby smiles!
4: Homemade carrot juice, although it needs experimenting with either apple or ginger…
5: Vegan Chocolate Mousse! I’m…

What have I learned?
The company who owns the company I work for doesn’t pay enough attention to their CEOs *snicker*. I’m not complaining because it got us a better contract deal.
It’s wonderful to take time off (vacation? What’s that?) when you want to rather than when the company decides a 3 day weekend is in order.
Pure Leaf Green Tea with honey is yummy.
90’s fashion was infinitely better than the 70’s and 80′! Bell Bottoms, neon and paisley. Yuck!
Caffeine in my morning coffee does a better job in my body than on it :D.
Have a good week 🙂
1: Not all Scottish people support the SNP. In fact, some of them think that a civil war would break out if they get independence..!
2: I lose my voice after speaking for about 3 hours. Guaranteed.
3: Richard Dawkins arguing is one of the most amusing things I’ve seen in a long time. I don’t necessarily agree with a lot of what he says but he’s hilarious.
5: Travel companies are rip offs. Enough said…
This hasn’t been the most extensive list, but I’ll use this opportunity to say that I won’t be vlogging this weekend. There’s some rather somber things to do after a death anniversary so it’s not appropriate…

It’s hard to believe the stupidity of people, well meaning or not.
My mom used to preach ‘Think before you speak’ because I was horrible for accidentally offending someone with my words.
Those words would more than wound me! I know the truth about myself as no one else can, I don’t need the ‘permission’ of someone else in order to feel bad.
A lot of years and a lot apologies later I am finally mostly out of the habit of speaking without thinking about the words I’m about to say.
As a result of that propensity when I was younger I have few friends but I have only myself to blame *sigh*.
I hope your post helps you to purge and I hope it helps others to think about what they want to say before it spews from their mouth and wounds someone.
*shaking my head*
Thinking about it: I remember the saying when we were kids, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” How wrong they were when that saying was coined. Words hurt the worst of all because the wounds can hide deep within us where no salve, no ice pack or warm hand can reach.
As an OCD sufferer I torment myself from minute to minute with flashbacks of memory and disaffirmations to keep me down. These are ten statements that have made me feel low over the years. A few date back to secondary school and some are a few years old. All were said in a context to wound, subjugate and offend. I hope by putting this statements here I can exorcise the extensive hold they have on my self-esteem and move on without recounting the impact they have on me everyday.
10. I feel bad sending you photos of my new nephew because you’ll never have kids.
9. I don’t want to wait another ten years, like you, to deal with the issue.
8. You were well enough in ITU to post on your Facebook.
7. You must stop blogging.
6. No offense, but even if she was a lesbian she wouldn’t…
