My darling hubby is a Trekkie. He has seen all the episodes, owns all the movies, many in “special edition” or “directors cut”. He has all of The Next Generation on DVD and several other versions as well. Memorabilia? Oh yes, we have memorabilia. Christmas ornaments that are ships or characters. Models of ships. A flag. Collector’s Plates. Collector’s Cards. Key chains. The list goes on. Now since I married this man, I accepted the fact that it would only be a matter of time before I was sucked into this phenomenon as well. So, I’m going to Trekkie School.
This past weekend, we decided to start with the movies. There are 9 of them, I am on movie number 5 and I am loving it. I have a small trekkie past. I watched the Next Generation religiously, growing up, and for a while I wanted to marry Worf.
So it is not hard for me to really get into this. All week I have been saying things like, “Damn it Jim, I’m just a doctor.”…”That is illogical.”…”He did a little too much LDS in the 60’s” Anyway, suffice it to say, I am having a blast and loving this. Do I see a convention in my future? Not yet, but I will tell you one thing, Star Trek has helped me find my knitting mojo again. I made some serious headway on my Scoop Du Jour Cardi over the last few days. Yay!
Pictures will be beamed up later this week.
