I Don't Know...

I don't know what to call this post. This kind of has just a bit of everything in it (except Star Trek because I talked about it Saturday.) Oh, I forgot to mention SPOILER ALERT!!!
I didn't get to watch the series finally of House. So I bough it on itunes and finally had enough time to watch it yesterday. I knew he was hallucinating from the heat and smoke inhalation. I recognized the suicidal employee (it might have helped that they mentioned that he was the one who killed himself.) I also recognized Wilson's dead fiance. Sadly though, It took me 7 minuets to recognize Cuddy. I feel terrible. Seeing him die was kind of sad too, he was so close to getting out, then the board crashed on him and he died. The eulogy was nice especially when Wilson had his turn. It was nice because everybody was making House into somebody he wasn't. Then Wilson gets up there and he speaks the truth. House was an ass. I though it was cool how House texted him from the afterlife. And it was cool how he was there for Wilson for those last five months. Well as a spirit.
Just a bit on music. If you haven't heard of the band O-Zone it's okay. They are just a hugely popular Romanian group. Well... popular in Romania.  I don't really understand what they're saying but it's pretty catchy music. not much to talk about but had to mention this.

1, 2, 3 Strikes You're Out!

 Warning: Today's post is overtly Trekkie.
I've been watching a lot of Star Trek The Original Series (TOS.) (And before I go on it might be a good time to mention that my absolute FAVORITE is Dr. McCoy.) My mother and I agreed on this; First Season, good plots, not so good character development. Second Season, okay plots/story lines, really good character development. Third Season, Sucky plots/ story lines, no character development. All-in-all the third season went to hell. But before you get on me abpou8t what I just said listen. I think that but I under stand that they had different writers and Rodenberry wasn't there. So the new writers made it like a really low budget space opera/ future based soap opera.
I finanlly got my hands on a copy of Spock's World By Diane Duane. I read Doctor's Orders and loved it*. so I decided to read Spock's World. I didn't know my library had it since the last time I looked for it the search came up nothing. But this time it turned out the only copy in the Fairbanks North Star Bourough (FNSB.) Was here at the North Pole Public Library. Yea! So I"m also posting from there, and I got Spock's World today. I can't wait to read it.

*See paragraph above, Doctor's Orders is about McCoy

It's time for those summer reading programs to start here in Alaska. Time to convince the kids to pull out their books and read them. Mothers start driving their cars to the local libraries so kids can get their stickers in the books. Time for the middle schoolers to write summaries and be put in drawings for prizes. Then time for the adults to wait for winter to roll around so they can do their reading program. I wonder, has it changed over the years. (Because this is what it's like here in Alaska.) Either way I read all the time. It's a ton of fun.

Here is something interesting to read and kill time, Strange Openings In Books.

I've learned recently that Star Trek is going to London! All I have to do is get there. However it's kinda pricey to get a good deal. I could probably afford the Gold Pass. It's not the most glamorous, but it's one of the best and the only one i can afford that's awesome. It's not bad but I don't have the money for the Platinum or VIP passes. I wish. But meeting Shatner would be really cool. I have to wait and see though. I also have to think about the hotel, eating, plane flights. But I think it would be worth it. What do you think?

Miss Me?

Yay! I'm back I haven't posted for a while for two reasons. One, I've been having trouble posting here. There is a glitch. Two, I found this new place called Librarything I'm Maggie21. It's used to manage your library. It also has forums. So it's kinda like a giant book club.
Summer's here in Alaska! Finally, I was getting really tired of the cold. I can also sit outside in the sun to read, and drink iced coffees. Yum!
My uncle's (Zoopraxiscope) financial situation is no longer desperate. It's only uncomfortable. This is after helping my grandparents move from Virginia to Kansas.
Time for  a bit of random linkage

Nifty Scissors- If I could choose...all the antique ones.

"I Want To Believe"-Yeah...

Bizzare Furniture- Do Not Want.

That's my updated life

Jane Eyre

Zelah Clarke and Timothy Dalton
I have found a version of Jane Eyre with the actress Zelah Clarke. It's amazing. She is such a good actress and it stays true to the book. I think it's wonderful and very good. I also think the book is wonderful and very good.
I'm not sick anymore! yay!
The only knitting stitch I currently know is the garter stitch but it works for scarfs.

A Very Random Day.

May the forth be with you.
That's right it's Star Wars day! However I prefer Star Trek. I have other stuff to talk about though.
Such as; *sniff, sniff* I couldn't get to the craft store today to buy my much needed yarn and knitting needles. Maybe tomorrow, I shall prevail!
An excerpt from another great blog Movie Critic. He reviews on of my favorite anime programs (The)Rose of Versailles. (Click on the link to read full review.)
"Something like the anime "Rose of Versailles" happened just once and never again."
Couldn't have put it better myself.
Am currently buying Doctor Who on itunes! Yay! I prefer the 9th doctor. He's pretty cool and really funny.
And yes, I am wearing my Empire Strikes Back t-shirt
And yes, I am a Nerdfighter!

Do any of my blog readers here knit? Do any of you have any ideas for easy starter projects? Leave your comments or E-Mail me. Please...? Eventually I would like to make a pink fluffy sweater like Miss Marple whom I always prefer to be played by Julia McKenzie.  So knitting is in my future. I just need to take a class on it... but that's not the point. Still sick, hate it have been taking DayQuil and eating yogurt and cottage cheese all day, I'm going to take a nap now...

I'm sick! I can't be sick I hate being sick.But since I'm sick I have been surfing the inter-web, and have thought about taking up knitting. I've been reading Agatha Christie. I'm also coughing my lungs out. It's a wet cough that hurts. I could take several medications, DayQuil, Delsym, or Alkaseltzer. *cough*  I took a dose of DayQuil and all it did was make it a bit easier to swallow with a bit less pain. Delsym if I had taken it would have made my coughs a little less wet and hurt a little less. Alkaseltzer does more than DayQuil...Aaauuuggghhh I don't have an Alkaseltzer Cold left oh well.

 Found these Amazing socks that I want to own or knit (And yes that is a TARDIS).

See what I mean by surfing the internet? I've also been searching the Archives of my Minions and Goblins.  *cough* I HATE with a passion being sick. Possible update later *cough*

Update-There is a chocolate bar on the kitchen counter that is calling me but at the same time is saying "You wont be able to enjoy me until you're not sick anymore." *cough* Please leave comments. Now anybody can leave comments.
