I couldn’t go to the 2pm showing of Wrath of Khan because of an appointment, and although I knew there was a second showing at 7 I was like eh, I’ll stay home. It’s not like I haven’t seen it before.

And then around 6:30 I was like what the fuck am I doing this is my chance to see it ON THE BIG SCREEN.

So I walked – at some points ran, with my TNG comm badge thumping against my chest – to the theater to catch the last showing.

Worth it. Totally worth it.

 When Sunset is depicted as anything other than the blatant dork lesbian that she is.

Although, please keep in mind, there is ONE guy that she's willing to shower attention and affection on ... his name is Ray.

 I see a lot of people wondering if Coran has a British accent or an Australian one. The answer is actually neither. He has a New Zealand accent. He's voiced Kiwi comedian Rhys Darby, who also has a great deal of popularity in Australia. He is a really funny guy, and I enjoy his appearances on the Aussie Whose Line is it Anyway?

There was a problem with my 3DS so I ordered a new one, but in the meantime I can't play any games and I've got a really strong Fire Emblem craving. ): Oh well.

I am a notoriously impatient person, so waiting for this package is really aggravating me. It would help if they gave me an actual time estimate instead of just saying it will be delivered "by the end of the day".

Please, my crops are dying.

I'm out of foundation and thinking about trying a different brand. I've been using Urban Decay, and it looks great, but I find I get oily and kind of sticky after a while. Maybe I'll try a matte foundation.

TNG novels

 Back when I first saw Star Trek: Nemesis, I was pretty disturbed by the resolution of Data's death. He transfers his memories into B-4, and then the ending hints that his memories might take over B-4's mind, and then Data will be back. The problem with that is that while B-4 is not as smart as Data, he's still a person. Treating B-4 as less important than Data because he's less smart has some troubling implications for how the writers feel about real life people who have mental disabilities. Having B-4 die just so someone smarter can come back to life? It has a bad subtext.

 But recently I learned that the TNG novels solved this problem by having Data come back without sacrificing B-4, so that they both get to live! So Right now I'm reading the novel where Data comes back, The Persistence of Memory by David Mack. There's some stuff I don't get because I haven't read any other TNG novels (besides Imzadi), but it's mostly understandable, and I've found it pretty enjoyable so far. Near the beginning of the book there's a thrilling chase sequence that really had me eagerly turning pages!

 I'm in the middle of re-watching DS9, but I might have to watch some of my favorite Data episodes from TNG. Back in the day I went through a huge Data phase, but over the years my focus shifted to other characters, like Jadzia Dax. Maybe it's time to revisit my favorite android!

OH, and also, I've decided I absolutely must attend Star Trek Las Vegas next year. I've never been in all my years of being a Trekkie ... I gotta make it this time!
