R.I.P. Mr. Spock

When I was a kid, my bothers would set up their bedroom as the bridge on the Enterprise, complete with a bean bag on the bed as the captain’s chair. Mark was Kirk, Phil was Spock, and I was Uhura (with a spool in my ear for communications). We probably only did this one time, but the memory has stuck with me.

Thank you, Lenord Nimoy. You were and will always be a treasure.

    I remember watching Star Trek a lot, but I don’t remember role-playing. I remember doing Superfriends and Narnia, but not Star Trek.

Well, it was a day. It is bitterly cold and we didn’t go outside at school. Our motto is ‘If it’s above zero or below one hundred, we go outside.” (That’s regarding degrees, not number of scorpions on the playground.) The wind chill was well below zero, so we stayed inside. Awesome. i stopped at […]

We had another successful Bad Movie Night on Tuesday, and Lauren is finally letting me write about it. We didn’t go into it thinking it would be anything out of the ordinary. Samith investigated the movies this time around and presented us with two choices: Jupiter Rising or Kingsmen. Samith characterized Jupiter Rising as, “potentially […]

I’ve been going to bed early since I’m fighting my cold. (What a wonderful excuse to be lazy!) My elbow is acting up again, so I give myself full permission to check out of reality and lie down. I’m falling asleep listening to a very nice station on Pandora. (You can go to Pandora.com or […]

Thanks, Ella.

Sooooooo many people at work are sick. Sooooooo many people in Seward are sick. We have a wellness policy at the CDC that has very clear guidelines: You can’t be at school until 24 hours after you are fever-free/vomit-free/diarrhea-free, but we can’t battle the common cold. You can’t make children stay home just because they […]
