Mortmere, my favorite ST vidder on youTube, created this little story about Mr. Spock's love affair with the ship's computer.
My third morning having coffee and blogging at the Fortuna coffee bar, a woman I've chatted with every day passed and said, "Are you always on that thing?"
"I love it!" I said, and thought of Spock.
I bought this laptop four years ago, and someone told me, "You are going to fall in love with it."
I didn't, not till this summer, making my own video remixes.
This trip especially marks a turning point in our relationship. It is commonly agreed that travelling alone can be pretty lonely. But not this trip.
Partly because I've been talking to people at the con a lot, but more because I've been talking to you guys on my blog, and that fulfills the traveler's need to say "Look at that!"
Like, look at this cool shirt from Quark's Bar.
The young man who is wearing it is very handsome.
You can't tell he's very handsome, below,
and I want to apologize to him, if he ever sees this, for even posting this photo.
We had just seen George Takei, and I said, "Do your Sulu impression," and caught him in this goofy pose.
I am posting it, however, because of the traveler's impulse to say, "Did you see that?"
What I want you to see is the guy in the background,
the one in the mashup Andorian/Starfleet get-up, pushing the baby stroller. Can you see his anteanae?
[Note: Sept. 20, 2008/ The human under that blue paint, Eric, left a comment identifying himself--he also appears in my photos as Data, carrying Lore's head! So cool to hear from someone I'd noticed and admired but never met.]
