Nerdy Star Trek Quote

I've been addicted to overheardinnewyork.com for a while now. This is the latest quote:

Cute nerd-girl playing scrabble #1
: Did you see that episode where Data made a daughter? It was so good, and so sad!

Cute nerd-girl playing scrabble #2: Yeah, it was.
Cute nerd #1: And do you remember the episode when the little boy idolized data...
Cute nerd #2 interrupting: I remember all the episodes.
Cute nerd #1: But there was this one scene...
Cute nerd #2: I remember that scene.
Cute nerd #1: But I didn't finish...
Cute nerd #2: I remember all the scenes. Seriously. There was one time when my friend was flipping channels, and she flipped to Star Trek. And I only saw like, a quarter of a second of it, with Dr Crusher bending over a patient, and I said, "'his blood is turning to some kind of liquid polymer.'" and then Dr Crusher said, "His blood is turning to some kind of liquid polymer!" It's like when some people hear like 3 seconds of a song and can identify it. I can do that with Star Trek.

FYI, the episode where Data makes a daughter is one of my favorite episodes of all time!!

Conversation challenge of the week

Try inserting this into a conversation:

"Overall shorts are just an invitation to uncomfortableness."

I was involved in an exchange not 10 minutes ago in which I used that exact sentence.

When talking about current movies,

Jose: "...a movie something like This is Not a Country for Old People..."

Oh my Lord, that was funny.

I had practically given up on blogging. I haven't felt like it for a long time. I still don't feel like I have much to say. I hate, however, having my blog out here un-updated for months, but I don't want to delete it either. So I'll just say a few things. We moved into a new house. We love it. It's really great to have more space to live in.

Today we are going to a memorial service for a friend who died of a rare form of cancer. She donated her body to a research facility that studies the type of cancer that she suffered from. Maybe they'll find a cure for others someday. Her name was Renee, here is here obituary in the Austin American-Statesman.

Some links that I've been into lately:


Oh, and I'm excited about the Spring and Summer coming up. Although we had a really mild Winter compared to the rest of the country, it's always beautiful here in Texas in the Spring and Summer. Especially Austin.
