The Blogaround

Storiteller contemplated big life changes and her baby’s similarity to marine mammals this week.  In The Big 31, she celebrates her birthday and reflects on how the past year has actually been one of the best of her life, much to her relief.  In Dolphins and Other Funny Creatures, she describes her trip to the National Aquarium with her family and how her son very much enjoyed himself.

After encountering a clip on youtube using a certain scene to argue that Sisko is the most “Badass” of Star Trek captains I asked, “When did ‘badass’ come to mean ‘evil’?”  (Spoilers for the episode of Deep Space Nine called, “For the Uniform”.)  At a commenter’s request I also made an open thread to discuss all things Star Trek.

I pointed out the obvious possible Frozen–Avatar: The Last Air Bender–Rise of the Guardians crossover that I’m sure many others have already thought of.

And lastly I pointed out that for various reasons (my mood is down, I’m constantly too cold because I can’t afford to refill the oil if I run out which I will if I keep the house at a reasonable temperature, in in contact with all the wrong people and too few of the right ones, et cetera) I’m probably not going to be posting as much as anyone wants.  Certainly less than I had hoped.  I’m just not in the right frame of mind.

Things You Can Do

Lonespark pointed us to a submission call:

Geek Out — A Trans* and Genderqueer Collection
Gamers. Computer nerds. Baking enthusiasts. Fanfic writers. History buffs. Cosplayers. Music, TV, painting, cars, make-up—we all geek about something, and nothing quite rivals the passion displayed by geeks for what they love. There’s no limit to what can be geeked over, and no rules about who is allowed to geek about what—and the harder someone tries to put such rules in place, the harder they get knocked down.
