Swine Flu! Star Trek!

SWINE FLU!


Are you a blogger? Would you like to attract readers to your blog? I’ve got two magic words for you: Swine Flu. My last two postings included Swine Flu in the title and my hit count seems to have quadrupled. I really don’t have anything else to say about the Swine Flu. Come to think of it, there are probably about a billion Trekkies trolling the internet since the release of the new Star Trek movie. Why not add Star Trek to my title?

If you stopped by to read about the Swine Flu or Star Trek and you’re still reading, welcome and I hope you aren’t so miffed that you won’t take a look around...

I did watch the original series as a kid. Never got into the later series'.


STAR TREK

The Trouble with Tribbles was probably the funniest episode in the original series.


Spectre of the Gun is my favorite episode. Kirk and the boys were imprisoned in a psychic illusion shaped from the recesses of Captain’s mind. The illusion took the form of Tombstone, Arizona, circa 1881.

My second grade classmate, Danny DiAngelo brought his lunch to Saint Joseph's Parish School in a lunch box excactly like the one above.



Lieutenant Uhura. Hot. Smoking hot.

Yeah, I've gotta admit...I like Star Trek...I finally admitted to my husband when he came into our bedroom late last night and caught me watching an old Star Trek show that I am a latent Trekkie. I wonder what I would have been in high school if Trekkies (sp?) were around then? Kinda scary...

Latent Trekkie Beth,
Thanks for stopping by. I thought I had a lot of kids with five. I checked out your blog. EIGHT KIDS??? Wow. I guess I should call you Super Mom Latent Trekkie Beth...

MR. Chi Town,
WHat ever it takes to build a readership, right?

JWEST,
Feel free to add your expertise on Tribbles.

Blues,
JWest is a Trekkie and knows his Tribbles much better that I do but I added a little infoon the next blog...
