I have a confession

Not only am a total geek…I am also somewhat of a trekkie.

I have seen all the movies many times*, every episode of The Next Generation several times, most episodes of Deep Space 9 (everything but the very last season I think), a few episodes of Enterprise and even watched the whole first season of Voyager before giving it up as a lost cause. I have even been known to make the occasional reference in everyday conversation (and I possess a Bajoran earring and a Property of Starfleet Academy sweatshirt).

I know there has been a lot of bellyaching and gnashing of teeth about the upcoming revamp, but I for one can’t wait to see it.

And while I having a geek confessional, let me also say that I also can’t wait for the new Wolverine movie. Hopefully it will get the franchise back on track after the last two X-Men movies were so disappointing.

*Although I just saw the scene in Wrath of Khan with the ear lobster things for the first time last year. It was the first time I could watch it without hiding my eyes like I had done since first seeing it as a little kid.

It’s funny cuz it’s true!

I am sooo guilty of this. When I was little if you were interested in something from a company that didn’t have a storefront nearby (which you only found out about said store because you saw it in a magazine or on a commercial), then you had to either call (from a phone attached to a wall by a cord) or mail them and request a catalog. Once you decided what you wanted, you had to fill out an order form and again either call in said order or mail the form in.

Monday my electricity was out for a couple of hours while they were replacing a pole in front of our house. I considered finding out whether The Husband could fix it so our internet was on the battery backup so I could at least check Facebook.

My, how far we have come.

Pretty much the cutest thing on the internet ever.

Once upon a time… from Capucha on Vimeo.

A breathtaking story by Capucine. Starring baby monkeys lost in frightening trees, a witch, crocodiles, a tiger, a “popotamus” and a lion, and even a “tremendously very bad mammoth”. There are also magic powers and an orange ring, but sometimes, “something goes amiss”.
Bring your popcorn and enjoy the show.
