Bah-Do-Weh-Oh-Freedom! Anyone else remember Freedom Dance off her Comfort Zone album? It was featured often on Melrose Place, how's that for a mark of quality!?!

Holiday break. Freedom until January 6. Now if I can just kick the cold I managed to give myself with my not sleeping and stressing, and spending too much time in the bar schedule.

For those who never watch TV or never ever see me or read my journal, you may be surprised to know that there is a new Star Trek movie coming out this week (could they play the commercial any more than they are?). Over the last few days, there have been two DS9 episodes on every night, at 2 and 3am, to get us ready for the movie. I've never seen these, so it's nice to get a feel for the state of the Federation at the height of the war with the Dominion, as I feel it will be important to understand how weak the Federation is going into this movie. Tonight, they are showing Extreme Measures and the Dogs of War, the last two eps before the two-hour series finale. It doesn't look like they are going to air What You Leave Behind pts I and II, though, tvguide.com doesn't list any upcoming episodes after Dogs of War. Maybe that's a good thing; two hours of tv time in the middle of the night isn't helping me get unsick!

Early monday morning showtime ran THE MAKING OF: STAR TREK NEMESIS, dude it was fucking awesome. It explained the scene where picard, data and worf are in the desert in the federation doon buggy and I laughed my ass off. If you want to know why I'll tell you but it's kind of a spoiler. the MAKING OF was only about 20 minutes long but I came like 5 times. It was that good! OH! and they showed a scene where Picard was chatting with ADMIRAL Janeway!

-If you saw it they all of this is void, no substitutions and is not valid in Hawaii or Denver.

I'm on radio silence with regard to the movie, afraid that I'll catch a spoiler. I'll look for the special on Showtime after I see the movie.

Hope you feel better soon...
Take better care of yourself, Stewart!

Bring me my pictures!!!!!

Come visit me and see how much I've changed!!!! I'll even let you color my hair... :-)

I can't wait for Friday's opening of "Nemesis"...one of the guys here at the station is a HUGE Star Trek fan. He and I are supposed to go see the movie.

I'm almost afraid to see it. It's obvious that all bets are off for this movie, and I know it's going to make me cry. You know how well I deal with big changes in my storylines that I love!

I can't wait to see it! I was hoping to this weekend, but it doesn't look like that will be happening, so I'll go someday after work next week. Plus LOTR next Wednesday too. It's just a week of good movies!

Hey...feel better my friend. You're not sounding too well.

We're a study in contrasts. This weekend has been scheduled around this movie ever since they announced the release date! My roomates are trying to get me to wait until a later show so they can go with me, but I'm resisting. I wanted a Thursday midnight show, but the earliest show here is 2p on Friday.

Thanks for your well wishes. This happens every semester at finals time, I become the highest yielding snot factory on the planet. I just need to take of myself for the next few days and I'll be super. How are you doing? Is the holiday season treating you well.

Re:
Can't complain. Holiday season so far is treating me very well. I have a wonderful weekend coming up and all in all am feeling pretty good these days. Thanks for asking.
