Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered in September 1987. I was five years old. That's a bit young to make a Star Trek fan, but my dad and brother were excited about it, and I thought they were great, so I was excited about it, too. It would be a few more years before I … Continue reading Star Trek: Picard, episode 101: Remembrance
Sunday Sum-Up, 06/09/2019
It's been a hot and humid week around here, and it sapped my energy. Work did that, too. Overall, it's been a sleepy kind of week where I didn't get much reading done. Alas. Better luck this week, once the heat breaks! Before the heat arrived, Sunday ended up being a gorgeous day. I drove … Continue reading Sunday Sum-Up, 06/09/2019
Sunday Sum-Up, 05/26/2019
It's been a stormy week around here. A series of systems have brought a lot of storms our way, which makes for great sleeping weather assuming there isn't a lot of thunder and lightning. Which there was. Suffice it to say that the past seven days haven't always been the best for getting a good … Continue reading Sunday Sum-Up, 05/26/2019
Sunday Sum Up, 01/27/2019
It was a cold and snowy week here in windblown Nebraska. I put the knit wool cap I bought on the Irish island of Inis Mór to good use, and though a coworker jokingly called me "Tiny Kim", my head stayed nice and warm on those frigid, blustery days. Really, I don't mind being compared … Continue reading Sunday Sum Up, 01/27/2019

Did You See Star Trek Last Night?
The end of every year of high school marked the annual awards banquets at my school. I don't know what the athletes did but the theater kids had fun, especially if you were in stage crew. While the actors had their, ‘best actor’ and ‘best actress’ honors, the stage crew had their own awards customized … Continue reading Did You See Star Trek Last Night?
Will someone please tell Summer that it's over? I'm really tired of these 90°F temperatures. 97° on the first day of Fall? Ugh. I've spent the last few days trying to keep cool and sleeping terribly thanks to the lingering hot weather. It's supposed to cool off on Monday, and I can't wait. I want … Continue reading Sunday Sum-Up
Around the first of June, I took my car to the shop for a repair. Some sort of bearing in a wheel housing was going out and making a horrendous noise, so I took it in for a multi-hour repair. The noise went away, and everything was fine. Last weekend, though, something strange started happening … Continue reading Sunday Sum-Up
