Much of a muchness

Things that make you go 'hmm'…

To boldly go…


This sunny book is to make up for the grey weather.

The copper ribbon didn’t arrive, needless to say, it should be here tomorrow. I had to have a ridiculous conversation with a chap on the phone discussing ribbons, as some of the colours I had ordered were out of stock. Trying to explain the difference between grape, wine, violet, purple, lupin and plum (all shades of purple I assume) on the phone, with no visual reference was not an easy task. It will be interesting to see what turns up tomorrow!

I was saving this little admission for the next time I was tagged to reveal weird/interesting facts about myself. However, I saw this cartoon and just had to share it. I am a sci-fi fan. I love Star Trek especially ‘The Next Generation’, especially Jean-Luc Picard aka Patrick Stewart. Actually, here’s two admissions. I love bald headed men. There’s a great song by Christine Lavin in praise of bald headed men (which can be bought on iTunes). Listen and laugh.

The cartoon is not about Jean-Luc though it’s about my second favourite Star Trek character, Mr. Spock. If you get this joke then you are as big a Trekkie as I am…

(The cartoon is from the website Big Eye Deer.)

    That cartoon is awesome! I love it! I need to send this to my fellow Trekkie co-worker.

    So is the song. Moving on….

    I love the sunny book. Maybe a favorite. Of course, I say that about all of them.

    You are always first to comment! I barely have time to click the publish button and there you are…thank you so much!

    Ha! You understood the cartoon – according to the guy who drew it – that means you are a nerd. You and me both!

    Tomorrow is your big day I think? Good luck with the writing for NaNoWriMo. I look forward to reading some of it….

    LeX – thank you for the Halloween wishes! It’s too late for me to pass it on but I will save it for next year!

    NurseMyra – It is a jolly paper. I do like bright colours , I must confess. I find it hard to do ‘subtle’ :-)

    Kim – Thanks as usual for your kind comments.
    it’s a very funny song, always makes me smile. There is another one she wrote that makes me laugh out loud every time I hear it which I must dig out and post. She is hilarious!

    My son and I are working our way through all the old Star Treks, and we thank you for the cartoon.

    Having been part of a book making workshop recently, I am especially impressed with your work, which is almost too beautiful to use.

    My son and I are watching ‘Deep Space NIne’ as we speak…

    I’m glad you like my books!
