Coming from me, this is going to sound monumentally strange: I can't WAIT to see the next Star Trek film. Yes. There, I said it. When I heard that my favorite prime time queen, Zachary Quinto, was going to play a young Spock I was intrigued. It was then announced that Eric Bana will be playing the part of the Romulan villain, and my ears perked up again (his acting was one of the best things about Troy). When everyone's favorite Bobbie and zombie-smasher, Simon Pegg, was cast as Scottie I began to have hope that this would at least be worth watching. What cinched it, then? The fact that Winona Ryder has been cast as Spock's mother. This is, dare I say it, going to be -rad-.

So here's a video to celebrate the occasion.

I found this while skipping around randomly on LJ. I was bored and decided to give it a go.

My score on The Which Ancient Language Are You Test:


Hieroglyphics

(You scored)



You are Egyptian Hieroglyphics! Monumental, ornate and even in technicolour! Your users contributed virtually all ancient knowledge on inks, dyes and writing surfaces - to the point where the popular reed of Papyrus became the universal name for organic, manufactured writing surfaces in the western hemisphere for thousands of years. Proud, upstanding and dignified.

So, I just got home from work about 45 minutes ago. There's a bridal shower I'm supposed to go to at 1:30pm. There will be people there I haven't seen, nor have wanted to see, since high school. There is also the chance there might be a few little mammal maggots slithering around and screeching like banshees from hell. I haven't actually -seen- the bride-to-be in months. Once they get engaged, they seem to forget that their unmarried friends even exist. This has happened before, but I digress. I had planned on not going at all. Hell, I'd even planned to skip the wedding itself and just attend the reception with the lovely significant other in tow. But, for all I've tried, I can't completely crush the remains of my conscience under my heel. I think I might actually go to this crap. I'll put up with the awful games, the awkward company, and the questionable food because I seriously owe one of the bridesmaids a great deal. I guess it doesn't hurt that I can still fit into the same size clothes I did back in high school, too. Petty, I know, but at least it makes me smile a little. :)

There's a 28% Chance You've Been Abducted By Aliens

Even though you have a few alien abduction signs, you're almost certainly in the clear.
However, if aliens ever do come to your neck of the woods... they'll probably be coming for you!

I might end up posting some of the character backgrounds I've written, both old and new(ish). They'll be marked "Friends Only" because I'm paranoid about my ideas being stolen by the general public, even if they aren't exactly wholly original by any means. It'll also give me something to post that isn't about my boring life. I'll warn you all right now that the grammar and tense in some is a bit wacky, but I never claimed to be any sort of Literature or English major. Matter of fact, I failed Honors Comp with flying colors! That might have been mostly due to the fact that my brain refused to let me write for that class, and that I sort of just stopped going. But who knows! The backgrounds, at least some of them, will probably encompass a couple of posts since I can get kinda wordy when given the chance.

You Are A: Bear Cub!

bear cubBears are strong and independent creatures who roam in the forest in search of food. Bears are usually gentle, but anger one and be prepared for their full fury! You're tough, you won't back down from a fight, you have a bit of a temper -- classic attributes of a bear. Intelligent and resourceful, though lazy at times, you are a fascinating creature of the wild.

You were almost a: Turtle or a Kitten
You are least like a: Squirrel or a LambWhat Cute Animal Are You?
