ST: porthos > you

Today is the 10th Anniversary of the premiere of Star Trek: Enterprise.




POURING OUT A 40 FOR MY UNDERAPPRECIATED HOMIES.





This show would have been much more successful if it premiered NOW. It works SO much better as a prequel to Star Trek 2009 than to TOS. (I still love the throwaway reference to ENT in ST2009.) Alas. IT WAS JUST AHEAD OF ITS TIME.

I also cannot watch it without thinking of Anchorman quotes.







WHERE ARE THEY NOW:
SCOTT BAKULA is on TBS's hour-long Viagra commercial "Men of a Certain Age"
CONNOR TRINNEER played a creeper on "Stargate: Atlantis", then IDK
DOMINIC KEATING was in that one episode of "Heroes"
LINDA PARK was on that one show that got canceled
EVERYONE ELSE ???????


THIS POST BROUGHT TO YOU BY SCOTT BAKULA'S CHEST HAIR



RESPECT.
DW: eleven headscratch

this conversation just happened.

MOM: So the, what's it called? Turtle? No, tortoise. The tortoise floats around space?

ME: What? What are you talking about?

MOM: This tortoise. It floats in space?

ME: There's a tortoise in space??? What?!

MOM: *sighs* What's the name of the thing Doctor Who flies around in?

ME: Ohhhh. The TARDIS! It's called the TARDIS.

MOM: That's what I said. TARDIS.



As I had started to last year, I'm going to start sharing some of these nuggets of joy that come out of my mom's mouth, because they are just too much to keep to myself.

sparkles' official memoir of the year from hell

It's been exactly 1 year and 1 month since my last proper public post, which is probably far more heartbreaking to me than to anyone else, but as I ~reboot~ this LJ I should probably offer up some kind of explanation as to my disappearance into the abyss. If you know me IRL or follow me on the twittahs, you've probably been aware of what's been going on to some extent, if not, do not worry, for I shall catch you up via

SPARKLES' OFFICIAL GUIDE TO THE YEAR FROM HELL

That's been the last year for me. I hope to be around these parts a lot more now that things have quieted down. Meanwhile, you can ask me anything.

welcome to my life.

Here is a convo I just had with my mom via text message. She's at her favorite bar, this little hole in the wall place in midtown where she's friendly with the owners/staff:

MOM: Ok, so some punk rocker walked in and everyone is going nuts. Have no clue who he is, something daddy? All in gold and tacky

ME: LOL what I have no clue

MOM: Some big star that apparently sold mills of CDs but I have no clue who he is. Black guy, tall, skinny, maybe it spells Diddy?

ME: P. DIDDY????????

MOM: Like i know but everyone is going nuts although drinks r not free

MOM: Yeah, it's him, whoever he is


Right, so for the record, it's Friday night and my 58-year-old mother is at a bar with "punk rocker" P. Diddy, and I'm at home doing homework and watching bad tv. Not sure how this makes me feel.

Oh, and hay guys. Guess my hiatus is over. I really ought to make a real post, huh?

I HAVE FOUND THE WEDDING CAKE OF MY DREAMS.



NO SERIOUSLY


SERIOUSLY

IT'S A VULCAN GROOM AND A KLINGON BRIDE. WITH CHEESY PLASTIC HEARTS IN THE BACKGROUND.

THIS IS GLORIOUS. NOW I HAVE TO GET MARRIED JUST SO I CAN HAVE THIS CAKE.

I JUST NEED TO FIND A MAN GEEKY ENOUGH TO MARRY ME.

YOU CAN ALL BE MY BRIDESMAIDS because my irl friends will refuse to have anything to do with this

;_; IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL. THE ONLY THING I WOULD ADD IS EDIBLE GLITTER.

ALWAYS I WANNA BE WITH YOU AND MAKE BELIEVE WITH YOU AND LIVE IN HARMONY HARMONY


hiatus.....ish


I feel so bad for everyone that's friended me in the last couple months; you're probably all "YO DOES THIS GIRL EVER POST??" D: I miss having something to write about, but when your life's in the toilet like mine, it's hard to concentrate on anything other than negativity, and I don't want to post that here. I don't have the energy either.

I've made the decision to move back in with my mom, and the stars aligned in such a way that the perfect time for me to do that is this weekend, so that's the other reason I've been quiet--I just have a lot to take care of in very little time. And while part of me is like



part of me is also optimistic. I'm going to ~reboot~ my life, start over, go back to school, figure out what it is I want to do with my life now. I think that with most of the financial stress off my shoulders, I'll finally be able to breathe a bit and be creative again. I've always envied those who are any good at bouncing back from failure, brushing their shoulders off and getting on with life. It takes me so long, and every setback I've faced in the last year has pushed me deeper and deeper into a hole that I'm still learning how to dig myself out of. /cheer up emo sparkly

I'm still around though, lurking, mod-ing, randomly commenting here and there. I COULD NEVER REALLY LEAVE THIS PLACE, BITCH PLZ.

I'll leave you with this moment of zen, courtesy of infinityshark who made this their ship on Star Trek Online:
