Random Monday

Today feels like a Star Trek day. Which should be easy, except that I’ll have to dive into a basket full of our DVDs and Blu Rays in search of the first one.  We’ve been trying to catalogue our movies and get them put away, but it’s taken us well over a month. Mainly because we aren’t actually doing it. Also, because my books take up all the shelf space in the house, so there’s no where to put them.

I enjoy the new iterations. I grew up on The Next Generation, and thanks to my older brother’s extensive collection of movies and full series when I was in high school, I was able to main line the original series and Deep Space 9 in one summer. Netflix provided more opportunity with Voyager a few years later.

I’m enjoying the update on WordPress. Before, I’d always have to scroll up or down with my mouse to add a link or change the font or style while I’m typing. With the update, the menu bar stays with the text, so there’s no scrolling up required.

I found the first Star Trek movie and put it in the Blu Ray player. Poor Thor. Poor doctor from House. Poor baby Kirk. Yep. I need a Kleenex. Every time.

I know a lot of people were upset over various aspects of the new movies, but I never got it. I never actually cared what people were upset about, honestly. I (and a lot of other people) enjoy the movies, and that’s all that matters in the end.

I’ve started trying something new with my coffee. Nothing major. I just add a couple of teaspoons of Nesquik to my Starbucks vanilla medium roast. It’s not bad. I recently bought a latte kit, too. Just K-cups for my Keurig, but it was fun to watch the froth form. It was delicious too. I went through it in a week. I will most definitely buy more.

My brother’s girlfriend is coming over in a couple of hours. I’ve agreed to help her one day this fall at a camp she does for teenagers. It focuses on living through loss and grief as a teen. I had just become a teenager when my mother passed away from cancer, so I hope I can help in some way. It’s rough. It will never be easy. But their shoulders will get stronger with time, until the grief isn’t so crushing.

I have a lot of writing to do today. I have to write at least 2000 words to meet my weekly goal. All I have to do is drop the inner editor and enter some sort of zen writing mode. We’ll see how that goes. I better get started.

I hope everyone has a fabulous Monday. =)
