July 3rd, 2003



* Dad needs surgery - there's some kind of intestinal blockage that didn't work its way out on its own, so they go in on Monday. (Natalie, go visit!)

* Looks like Yudi got the house - they accepted his price, but counteroffered with weird contract stuff, but they responded and it was accepted. He's working out the details of the loan now, but assuming everything goes according to plan, he'll be a homeowner on June 29.

* Sour burp. Up my nose. 3:00 a.m. Bleargh! :(

* What do you do when some idiot gets out of his car and starts screaming at another driver through her window? What an ass.

* Noel called twice yesterday. Aw. :)

* Dinner with Quincy tonight, BBQ tomorrow, coffee & picnic Saturday. I'd rather be in Seattle. :(

* Holiday weekend! w00t!

The Quintessential Vulcan Poll

I'm sure this has been done a million times before, but it amuses me nonetheless. :)

A while ago jkusters and I were having a discussion about Vulcans as portrayed in Star Trek. Who our favorite character and/or actor might be aside, we were discussing who best represented what the "quintessential Vulcan" would be as described so often in the various series (logical, repressed emotions, what have you). We were of differing minds as to which character would qualify as the best representative, so I thought it would be fun to poll others.

I debated sticking with only the major characters (Spock, Tuvok & T'Pol), but I think we saw/have seen enough of both Sarek and Soval to include them (of course there were others, but for the most part we only saw them in one episode; however, if you think one of them best represented what Vulcans should be, please include them).

Have fun!

Poll #152886 The Quintessential Vulcan

Which was portrayed most like a quintessential Vulcan?

Sarek (Mark Lenard, Star Trek)
Soval (Gary Graham, Enterprise)
Spock (Leonard Nimoy, Star Trek)
T’Pol (Jolene Blalock, Enterprise)
Tuvok (Tim Russ, Star Trek: Voyager)

If "other," please specify:

Inconsiderate friends. BAH!

ADDED 7/6/03: OK, after talking with David, it turns out the medication he's been on has been seriously fucking him up - to the point of amnesia - so he wasn't actually capable of thinking ahead. Therefore, keep in mind the rant below was written before I knew this. That'll teach me to give someone the benefit of the doubt. :)


OK, David, if you knew you were coming to San Diego for weeks, and we haven't seen each other in like 3 years, and you really wanted to get together, why do you wait until the day you got here to call me, then leave me an indescipherable message with a hotel that doesn't exist and a phone number that doesn't work so I can't call you back? That was Sunday. It's Thursday. And now your "schedule is full," so you can only see me tonight, when you had LOTS of time earlier in the week when we could have gotten together, like, a LOT?

I know you have problems, dear, but really, you couldn't have dropped me an e-mail? I mean, I'm possibly heading to Toronto for Worldcon in September, and I do believe I'd already dropped you an e-mail about that, yes? That you didn't respond to? (And if I'm wrong and I didn't, I've thought about it enough and/or put it on my list of things to do soon that I think I might have already done it, which means I, unlike you, think ahead when I want to spend time with someone.) Or did you figure we'd talk about it while you were here - on the trip you didn't bother to tell me you were taking? Some of us have busy lives, you know, and like to plan more than 5 minutes ahead.

But I do want to see you, so I'm cancelling on Quincy to have dinner with you. You're getting an earful, but I'm still glad I'll get to see you.

(no subject)

I wanna start a web page for all the men I find hot out there, particularly in TV/movies. I'm already thinking Garrett Wang, Von Flores, Anthony Montgomery, Jet Li, LL Cool J, and on and on. (Mmmm... hot men...)

Of course, first I need to learn how to set up a web page - my limited knowledge of HTML coding wouldn't suffice. :D
