Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


My birthday treat

I am so stoked. Cruising the net while dad is watching some History Channel show and I started going to the links I have bookmarked, but visit infrequently. I don't really have the luxury of time to just play on the Internet, but since soccer was cancelled this morning, I have about four hours on my hands that I hadn't filled with another activity (yet). So, I just cruised by the Star Trek convention link. I keep hoping there will be one in the North Texas area. Today, I rolled seven!

A Star Trek convention for the classic Star Trek is coming to Grapevine. Now, my favorite is Deep Space Nine, followed by TNG and then Voyager. But, I'll take it. Shatner and Nimoy will be there on Army of Mom's birthday. What a great treat for my birthday. Now, I won't be able to shell out $70 for a picture. Now, maybe, just maybe, I will put up a PayPal link so if anyone wanted to contribute to the "Army of Mom's birthday Be an Official Dork with her picture of Leonard Nimoy fund" ... hmm, *scratching chin* I may just do that.

Here's the links for all the Sci-Fi conventions this company does.

I am SOOOOOOOOOOO excited. Maybe I'll watch Lord of the Rings today to further solidify my geekdom.

    My credentials as a Star Trek lover are long...I watched the show in its original time slot. I haven't been reading this blog for long, but please tell me you're not an 'Enterprise' hater? I love that show, even more than (gasp!) the original series. DS9 left me cold after a while, though Voyager got better with age.

    I like Enterprise, too. I love Scott Bakula, for one thing. I just find that I don't watch it very often because the time slot doesn't work well for TV shows in our household. My two little ones go to bed between 7 and 7:30 and Enterprise comes on at 7 here on Wednesdays. So, I find myself catching 15 minutes here and there. I, too, like it better than the original series.

    Around these parts it is rebroadcast a couple times a week. I tape all the shows I like, anyway, so I can delete the ads. It kinda freaks my kids out when I sit there transfixed, holding my T'Pol action figure in one hand, and my genuine authorized copy of the phase pistol in the other.

    I LOVED DS9. Finally a war series. Enough talking about the great battles of the past lets see some current battles involving whole fleets!

    Enterprise is cool, but like AOM I haven't seen many episodes.
