Who ate my Lunchable?

March 21, 2010

I went with Rachel to Goodwill this morning and bought three sweaters, a striped shirt, a Monty Python shirt(!!!), three cassettes (Pat Benatar, Elton John, and the Lion King), and a grey sweater vest! It was a joyous day. Afterward, we went over to Rachel’s house and made our Kirk is a Jerk shirts! Finally! They look so legit, especially the insignias. I love them so much. And I love tomorrow so much though it hasn’t started! It will be William Shatner’s birthday and there’s rehearsal until late! Hooray!

Today was the BEST of all

March 20, 2010

I had so much fun today! We had all-day rehearsal for the musical, from 10 am to 8:30 ish pm. It was so utterly MARVELOUS I can not believe it. I wish it happened every day. I talked so much and laughed so much that my voice has become hoarse. It feels so dull at home now, without dozens and dozens of

Tomorrow I think Rachel and I shall go to Goodwill and then back to Rachel’s house to make our “Kirk is a Jerk” shirts (FINALLY!). We will wear them Monday for William Shatner’s birthday.

I CAN’T WAIT I CAN’T WAIT I CAN’T WAIT I CAN’T WAIT I CAN’T WAIT I am SO much in love with life right now! I love when I feel like this, when I can’t wait for EVERY little thing that is going to happen to me. I will be SO bummed when the musical is over.

Stripes or polka dots?

July 4, 2009

Today was the fourth of July, as you all well know.

I made plastic bag yarn and watched Twilight Zone more or less all day, though I also watched an old Late Night with Jimmy Fallon episode with Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy. It was one of the funniest things ever. Whenever I see anything Star Trek related, I literally squeal. It’s so exciting to see something so well-loved in everyday life. Naturally, this makes it difficult to get through William Shatner’s autobiography Up ‘Till Now, as I am laughing every few seconds, out loud and all, and then various family members hear and come in the room and pester me as to why I’m laughing, and they aren’t all that interested in William Shatner’s quips and so it all turns into this great big hilarious mess.

Anyway, I already have this HUGE ball of plastic bag yarn but I MUST MAKE MORE.

Tomorrow I hope to go to Goodwill, if only I’ll be able to convince my father into bringing me there.

Saddest Twilight Zone episode ever:

(I’m getting teary just thinking about it)


(Time Enough at Last)

One of the most moving episodes:


(Eye of the Beholder)

Attempted and/or succeeded

July 2, 2009

Today I attempted to:
knit a Sherlock Holmes esque hat for an unknown child.
teach myself to keep a straight face.
keep dry while sitting on a wet swing outside.
improve my psuedo Russian accent.
wish myself up some summer dresses to twirl around in.

Today I succeeded in:
waking up in a pink chair with an ottoman below my feet.
watching three and a half Twilight Zone episodes.
reading the first hundred pages of William Shatner’s other autobiography, Up ‘Till Now (did I mention it was returned to the library, finally, and Rachel and I found it during Wednesday Club yesterday?).

Now, I will go and memorize a Star Trek related monologue. I’m pretty excited about that. I’m thinking maybe Spock’s eulogy as recited by Captain Kirk.

I’ll admit it

June 19, 2009

I “squee”d a lot today. Why? BECAUSE THE STAR TREK ACTION FIGURES ARRIVED. And no, not only that, but also the CD arrived! I took an extraordinarily grandiose amount of pictures, but I still haven’t found my camera cord and so I still can’t put up any pictures. The figures are amazing, though. Really. McCoy’s hands are of course perfectly formed for grabbing and unable to hold the phaser Kirk comes with. Spock looks very fitting holding his science tricorder, and McCoy looks like… well, McCoy… when he holds his medical tricorder. The CD is great and I’ve been listening to it for ages.

In addition to these fantastical happenings, I am soon going to be going out to dinner with my grandparents, ALL BY MYSELF. This has never happened before, the the best of my knowledge.

Other than fooling around with the CD and action figures, today I did some knitting and… pretty much nothign else. Oh, but Abie made me a three-dimensional U.S.S. Enterprise out of paper, and it it FANTASTIC, and so I spent awhile finding the perfect place to hang it up in my room.

OH OH OH, I just remembered something else I did: I made a Star Trek notebook out of the Star Trek cereal cereal box! I did this by cutting the cover and back cover off of a blank spiral notebook, and then I glued the box in in some way, and it all left me with the GREATEST PLACE EVER for writing down my thoughts in. Coincidentally, I actually began to write in the journal I got for my birthday from my aunt and uncle about a week ago. I’ve been writing in it every night since then.

Well, I’m supposing it’s very nearly the time to go out to dinner, so goodbye. I still haven’t found my library book, in case you’re wondering, though I’m guessing it will show up the day after I end up paying for it. The same thing happened with The Phantom of the Opera.

So there’s this album

June 10, 2009

called “Spaced Out: The Best of Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner,” and I am going to buy it. It is the best thing ever.

In other news, I now have many new books to read. Twelve, to be exact. These include six relating to Star Trek as well as Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger’s, a book by Augusten Burroughs’ older brother. (you remember when I was on that Augusten Burroughs kick, right?) I heard about it from Daniel’s blog, and then I saw it at the library and had to check it out. The other book I checked out is about the fabulous Francis Crick, who aided in discovering DNA. Also, Daniel is lending me a book called The Monsters of Templeton.

I have now begun reading William Shatner’s autobiography first off, and it is absolutely hilarious. I can’t help but laugh while reading it, especially the bit at the beginning when Shatner notes that DeForest Kelley, who plays McCoy, spelled his name wrong in cement on his Hollywood square, and in fact took up four squares rather than one square like Shatner and Nimoy. Shatner describes the incident as giving new meaning to McCoy’s quote, “I’m a doctor, not a bricklayer!”

Hilarious, completely hilarious.

I know I haven’t said much, but goodbye now. I have some reading to do…

I spent

May 29, 2009

yesterday evening finishing my Photography project and then resting, so I didn’t have a chance to post or to do much anything else. Doctor Who Season 1, Disc 5 arrived in the mail, but unfortunately it was one that only had bonus material on it, so I returned it, hopefully to begin watching Season 2 soon. Most of it can be watched on Netflix Intant, I believe.

Oh, something I DID do yesterday was photoshopping the faces of my friends and I onto pictures of Star Trek characters. It was excellent and very much fun.

Today, I admired the storm outside, which is most extreme much like a couple of days ago, and then I watched two episodes of Star Trek, “What Little Girls are Made Of” and “Miri.” After this post, I will be watching the next episode, “Dagger of the Mind.” Somebody commented on the “Miri” episode and noted that one of the children William Shatner held near the end was his own daughter. I thought that was very interesting and a nice personal touch to the episode.

Yesterday, I, as Kirk, wrote a poem to Rachel, or Spock, rather. Today she responded with an immensely amusing and surprisingly emotional letter from Spock to Kirk. I would scan it, but surely one could not expect me to divulge the details of such personal matters.

There are possible plans to be made for a trip to Goodwill with friend(s) this weekend. That, and a second Star Trek party, are likely in the near future.

Oh, we got our yearbooks on Wednesday. I forgot to mention that. The format of the school pictures is positively awful. They are on every page and very tiny in lines at the bottom.

Well, anyway, I must get back to my Star Trek watching. Live long and prosper!
