Some Thoughts, Updates, and Bits of Random

Standard

I’ve been reading like crazy, converting friends to nerdism, and finally have a decent novel idea. Also, I’ve discovered I’m a snob about musicals.

Soooooo, I was thinking about doing BEDA 2 to make up for my inconsistent blogging as of late. I’ll let you know what I decide soon. I’m just worried about computer access as I have some epic adventures planned. Hmmmm….

It’s funny that you can say what you mean without meaning what you say. It’s like knowing someone (i.e who they are) without truly knowing anything about them.

This post has no real point. But I’m going to keep going. Feel free to stop reading.

Have you ever come across something and though, “Hey! I came up with that idea a long time ago!” ?  It’s extraordinarily frustrating. Or, on the flip side, have you ever come across an idea that you really wish you had thought of but didn’t?

Do you have a time travel theory? I mean, do you believe in the butterfly effect or that time is in flux or…. what? Doctor Who holds that time is in flux, which makes sense, but is a little strange. For every change in the past, the future simply reshapes itself to accommodate it.

And now I’m off to listen to trock and research study hacks.  Someday, I will be less random.

Maybe…

Another “Things I Like” Post? Really?

Standard

What can I say? I like a lot of things, and I don’t have a Tumblr! This one’s heavy on the geek side.

1. trazzler_slide_show_beautiful_bookstores

I have been to one bookstore from this slide show, and would gladly go to any of the others (read: biggest understatement ever!)

2. I think that this show is either going to be awesome and exciting or crap. Either way, I’m going to give it a shot. Alcatraz will premiere this fall, if my info is correct.

3.  I have mixed emotions about this: I’m actually kind of nervous about how this movie will turn out. If they ruin the Hunger Games, I will not be a happy camper.

4.  It’s (semi) official! I’m going to a Comicon this spring with my buddies/homies/companions/sidekicks! I’ll keep you informed on its progress.

5. Breaking out in song to express how you feel. Yes, I do this (Look through my archives). My life should be a musical! That would make me incredibly happy.

6.This is so funny to me. Firefly crew in Star Trek uniforms labeled “Star Wars”. I know. I’m a nerd…

7. I can’t wait for the fourth movie! Pirates of the Caribbean is such a fun series! Here’s hoping they don’t mess it up!

8.  Blueberry muffin cereal. If you haven’t tried it, do (try it, I mean). If you have, you should tell me if you love it as much as I do!

9.  This page http://mantia.me/wallpaper/  is where I get wallpaper for my computer. Not only are they nerdy, but they are also beautifully done.

10.  The Hobbit movie is going to be awesome! I’m rereading my copy of the book in eager anticipation. I love my copy. It’s hard-bound, green, and lap-sized. It has the most wonderful illustrations.

And that’s all, folks! Chat at you later!

I crossed the line….

Spock

"That is not logical, Captain."

*Before I get this going, I just want to remark on the irony of all my Star Trek posts. I’m actually more of a Star Wars girl, or was, growing up. But, in the last year, it seems as though I spend more and more time on Star Trek…Hmmm…

I’m reading Star Trek Omnibus Volume 1, which is a collection of Star Trek comics, and um…. for the first time, I confused something in Star Trek with real life! I know, right? I felt so stupid! But, in my defense, it was something that made sense!!!!

In a comic entitled, “We Are Dying, Egypt, DYING!”, the crew finds a planet that appears to be a copy of ancient Egypt, complete with pyramids. The crew is talking about the planet’s development, when Spock says, “Might I remind you that Hodgkin’s Law holds that cultures develop in similar patterns on similar planets….” So, I looked up Hodgkin’s Law and read a bit about it, and thought, “Wow! This is really cool! It makes sense that basic development of cultures would follow certain patterns!” Then, I read this:

“The theory was the brainchild of biologist A.E. Hodgkin, who first visited the planet Loracus Prime as part of a science survey mission. As Hodgkin noted in his log, the native termite life of Loracus was remarkably similar to that of Earth, Vulcan, and several other Class M worlds.”

Yep.  I feel stupid right about now.
