The nostalgia continues...

What a weird week. On Monday I spent the day with my aunt - the one mentioned below. Up until this year we'd never gone more than a few months without catching up but, due to a comedy of errors and busyness (is that a word?) on both of our behalves, this reunion celebrated our first actual communication for 2006! Thank goodness blood is thicker than water, and all those cliches.

On Tuesday, out of the blue, two old Star Trek friends I haven't seen in ages (one about 18 months, but the other about 13 years) contacted me by email, wanting to restablish contact. Very cool! Ironically, it was all the publicity about "Number 96" coming out on DVD that sparked in them a reason to seek me out, and my websites led to them to me. Onya Google! And hello Susan and Adam. I've missed you both.

And now, after 13 years, am I game enough to ask Adam if he still has that videotape I once lent him? Look what happened in our mutual absences: a whole new method for recording video events was invented! (I don't even have my VCR plugged into the TV any more, 'cos it was making my new DVDs strobe.)


1980: The Andorian finds ST:TMP, and a life in fandom awaits...

In more examples of nostalgia, I played around with the facility for adding favourite links to this page... and three more old Star Trek friends (all fellow bloggers of more experience than this little blue duck) from the 80s have been added. Hi Andrew, De and Randy. So cool to find you all online.

Are you from the FUTURE? Cause you look kind of funny. Let me know if you need any side-kick back up!

Thanks for leaving a comment. You were fast - I was still editing an HTML error at the time. A sidekick? sure! But considering I spent a lot of time in the 80s and 90s dressed as Robin the Boy Wonder, I guess you could say I was my own sidekick...
