Dear younger brother,

I know I said that I hated you back when I was delusional, but that's just it. I was delusional. I honestly thought that you were the source of all my problems back then. Now I know that it was just the way our trials were timed. I love you with all my heart, even when you are a pain in my rear. I'm sorry that I never really played with you when you were a kid, too. Again, the delusion thing is partly to blame. The other part is our age difference. I am so sorry about saying that I hated you.

You'll probably never read this, since you're not on LJ and probably don't even know it exists. But I can tell you when you wake up this morning.

With all sincerity,
Your "little" sister

Ah, Star Trek. What sci-fi franchise has inspired more geekiness? None, I can tell you that.

I come from a long line of Star Trek fans. My grandfather liked it, he passed it on to Mom, who passed it on to me. I literally remember watching The Next Generation as a 4 year old with my mom. More recently, we went together to the J.J. Abrams reboot movie. I actually started clapping at the end credits. We also went to see Star Trek: Nemesis together. Both of us cried when (spoilers) Data sacrificed himself to save billions of lives(end spoiler).

Yeah, I have a lot of fond memories involving Star Trek. Like that universal remote shaped like a phaser I had for years. Never actually used the remote feature. I just wanted a phaser.

The world has changed a whole lot since 1966, thanks in part to Star Trek itself. So many modern amenites have their roots in Star Trek tech.

So happy 45th anniversary, Star Trek. May you keep boldly going where no one has gone before!

My first crush actually returned the feelings, if you can believe it. At age 3, no less. I'm pretty sure it lasted until kindergarten. The crush sorta came back when we were 11, but by the time I moved to Washington, our relationship had evolved to where he was part of the family rather than a potential love interest (his mom was single, and my dad was his Scoutmaster before we moved).

Since I lived in Florida as a child, my memories don't involve snow, but they do involve lights. Lots of lights. I lived near Thomas Edison's winter home, so we would often go see the lights there.

However, there was one place that topped them all when it came to lights. It was out of the way, but that just made the drive there all the more exciting. These people went all out when decorating their home for Christmas, and I mean all out. There were miniature amusement park rides that moved, there were animatronics, there was a huge rocking horse shaped like a reindeer, there was a life size Santa's sleigh, there were even skiers on the roof with a ski lift! It was a child's dream come true. We went there every Christmas as a family, and each year they added something new.

I rather miss that place.

Too old to do the trick-or-treating yourself? Yes. Too old to sneak candy from your younger siblings or children? Never. And you are never too old to be a trick-or-treating chaperone.

In other news, I went to a Halloween party last night. Didn't come home until 1AM. Fun times were had. Someone actually dressed up as Gumby. Other notable costumes: a golf accident victim(the makeup was spectacular), Waldo and his girlfriend, Christine Daae and the Phantom, Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World(excellent!), Maleficent, and Carl and Ellie from Up(they so looked the part. "Carl" even had the cane with the tennis balls on it). My sis was a dark fairy, and I was a pioneer(I reused my trek costume). Oh, I almost forgot. A pair of brothers dressed up as Ghostbusters. They even got the equipment right.

I'd have to say that my fondest childhood memory of my dad was when we went to Epcot together, just the two of us. I was about 13 or so, and Dad was taking all the kids to their favorite part of DisneyWorld for some bonding time. That's what is so great about my dad. He does things with us, even if he might not neccesarily like what we choose to do. Since I am a total sissy when it comes to rides, we spent all our time at Epcot looking at the gadgets in Future World and the neato merchandise in World Showcase. And yet never once did Dad complain about it. It was also one of the last times I went there, so the memory is extra-fond for me.

So yeah. My dad is awesome. What else can I say about it?
