It would bring me joy if some meaningful authority or organization actually created The United Federation of Planets.  Dream big!  Maybe if we Earthers collectively signed on to a manifesto declaring our part and joint stewardship in the galaxy, we might inspire a new generation of scientists, explorers and dreamers.

Oh, I know, we'd be the only signee of a high-falutin' and mostly meaningless document, but, damnit, isn't it about time we start boldly going where no man has gone before?

That would be our local Angel Tips Nail Salon on $12 mani pedi day. The local gents know to stay away in droves.  ;)

My BFF is a Klingon.

Seriously. We worked at Star Trek: The Experience (part of the franchise) together. I have a pic of the both of us somewhere when I was a Vulcan there. She was the only female Klingon there.

So happy they let her keep her cat. There isn't a story about a pet finding its owner that I don't like, but this had the perfect happy ending.

Thanks everyone. I've been awake and traveled a thousand miles since the lunar eclipse so...
I'm kind of stupit right now but grateful, and in awe of life and stuff.

Now and for a large portion of my life I have lived and worked with friends who are Mexican Natives, meaning non-mestizo, traditional Native Americans, from Mexico- Indian People, whatever.
AnYwhoo... They love to talk to each other, and to their family back home on their phones and so, all day and into the evening I get to hear their sing-songy, cute, and unusually syncopated Uto-Aztecan dialect, which pretty much makes me feel happy like a kid. Old school. Memories.

Congratulations mate. I have a 7 week old daughter. Perhaps we can organize an arranged marriage to join our two houses.
