Wow. I missed the Internet dikkery completely... I suppose I'm in the minority when I say that I prefer your work in Star Trek to Stand By Me... I was an awkward precocious child who didn't identify at all with kids my own age, and struggled to interact with adults, who were on my intellectual level, but not dealing well with that usually. It was AWESOME to see a character going through the same struggles as I was. Yes, I knew it was fiction... But that meant that other people were out there that understood my frustration... And that made it better. It showed that in the future, there could be a world where people like me could have a place. Just as much as it showed me a future where girls could be tough, and girls could be smart. I found your blog a good while ago... It popped up in a search for something nerdy I was looking into, and I went a bit fangirl, and had a squee over the fact that this guy who had like, played me, in ST was also a huge Geek in real life, and ISN'T THIS KENAWESOME!!! *breathes* and this is why I lurk, until now...

And it was obviously Beverly's Mum that made them for you, cos she had to be an awesome woman to raise a daughter like that!) * OMG Been there! Allergic to preservatives, so brewed my own without... Very soon, you will become bored with 'normal' fermentation, and decide to experiment with other things... My brewing foray ended when I turned a box of commercial Blue Powerade soda syrup into 'Romulan Ale'... Family made me eBay my equipment after that.

WWdN: In Exile
3652 days later...
So, while I'm putting together the last few things I need to take to PAX, I realized I forgot to mention something: ten years ago yesterday, I started my blog at WWdN*. Ten years ago today, Metafilter declared that it was "lame,"** and most of the Internet was really shitty to me about the whole...
