So, last night was the night of the ST:TNG on the big screen. It was raining and traffic was awful. I hadn't been to that particular theatre in some time, and went to the "Dine In Movie" side, which was not at all where we were supposed to be. Get around the other side, finally get our pre-paid tickets picked up, and I was  >:( since we were 20 minutes late. Get into the theatre and all was roses and sunshine. It was totally worth the ticket price and the behind the scenes bits/cast reunion was amazing. Had a fan-girl moment!

Did you notice at the end of Datalore that Brent Spiner slipped and said "I'm" instead of "I am"?  >:D

Common sense is not a gift, but a curse.  Because then
you have to deal with all the people who don't have it.

^^ Yes! I also determined that I can pick out Lore v Data all of the time, due to the facial expressions and body language. I want to buy the blu-ray sets so bad, but I can't let myself since I already have the entire series on dvd as well as the movies!

I was perusing old threads and even with the warning about no one's posting for 120 days, I needed to do this:

"Live long and sleep"

(I apologize in advance for the groan-worthiness)

For more nerdom,
when you tell your HS son that if he exempts three classes mid-terms, by having a 95 or better, then he can go to the midnight premiere of The Hobbit. 
(less study time, less sleep, but fewer mid-terms to take next week so less stress!)

DS was informed that he and DH would be accompanying myself to the Hobbit on Saturday. I can't wait!

Did he succeed? :)

"--yet sadly, accidental rudeness occurs alarmingly often," Dumbledore finished the sentence gravely.  "Best to say nothing at all."

Actually, yes!  But his friends changed it to Friday afternoon because not all had parents willing to do midnight.  Plus, a club several of them are in did a service project at 5am this morning, feeding breakfast to the homeless.
So, he is resting peacefully in the knowledge that he has a ticket, all A's, hairy hobbit feet and/or elf ears.
The only thing missing is a meal planned at that chain restaurant with the movie tie-in promo. :)

The single brand-new item in your collection of baby clothes for Baby Incoming (due in April, everything else is either hand-me-downs or from thrift shops) is this one.

Husband wants his own Version 1.0 shirt but they're currently out of stock!
... it might frighten them.

I made a fellow nerd's day today by complimenting her Carbonite Han Solo cellphone cover - unbeknownst to me, her entire family had apparently failed to identify it and had been making comments about it being creepy all morning.

When as part of your preparations for adopting a cat, you make lists of potential names, and they are all such things as Arya, Nienna, Kaylee, Atticus, Rory, Horatio, and Malcolm. Because your nerdiness is not only deep, it is also wide-ranging!


If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, librarians are a global threat.

Well, almost all medical advice agrees that variety in the diet is healthy. I'd presume that applies to nerdery consumption as well.

Sidenote - I learn toward people names for my kitties too, but I'd never thought of Atticus. That'd be great for a cat!

I'm planning to get chickens in about a year, and have already decided the theme for naming them.

Did you know that birds are dinosaurs? Not descended from dinosaurs, are dinosaurs?  So I need saurian girl names:

Rexy
Steggy
Patty
Bronwyn
etc..
Bingle bongle dingle dangle yickity-do yickity-dah ping-pong lippy-toppy too tah.

You are missing the amazing opportunity to give your little tiny chickens scary names!  Velociraptor!  Utahraptor!  T-Rex!  Allosaurus!

We had a nerd moment in moving - see previous threads about the vast quantities of stuff we moved from Arkansas to Georgia. It was, literally, five tons of stuff. We had almost 900 boxes, ranging from wardrobes to small book boxes. I had to go through the listing for an insurance claim I was filing, and counted 334 boxes labelled books. We have five tons of stuff, and fully 1/3 of it is books. Now I remember why I asked for, and received, five - five shelf bookcases for a housewarming gift. And have them filled.
