Ok, Ok… It has been three weeks since the curtain fell on the last show. It will be sometime before the next one (at least a few months as I committed to being my godson’s sponsor for Confirmation in March). Can we say cabin fever? Ah, well… something will come up. I do have a Star Trek Scene It game night coming Thursday night that I am REALLY looking forward to. I have about 5 versions of the game and really like the game although finding victims to play a few of them with can be difficult at times (Anyone for a little Bond… James Bond?) I know that there is an 80s Pop Culture version to go along with the Trivial Pursuit version. I would also like the Harry Potter edition but I think I will wait until after the 2 part finale is finished just in case there will be more than one Harry Potter version. BTW, taylhis… how’s that first book? I just started rereading The Sorcerer’s Stone last night. Not sure when the first part of the cinematic Deathly Hollows is being released, but we’ll see if I can make it through the seven books before that.
Back to another topic. One of Star Trek’s finest was recently knighted. Sir Patrick Stewart now joins such icons as Sir Paul McCartney, TWO James Bond’s (Sir Sean Connery and Sir Roger Moore), and Lord of the Rings director Sir Peter Jackson.
Of course Mr. Stewart is not limited in his credentials by being the captain of the USS Enterprise (NCC 1701-D and ‘E). He began his career in the Royal Shakespeare Company and was in a production of the most haunted play in history, Macbeth. I remember watching a video of him playing Claudius in Hamlet during a class. He also starred as Professor Charles Xavier in the three blockbuster X-Men films. Stewart has now returned to the London stage in a play which I have yet to learn the title of. Anyone?
Hopefully, my down time will not lead to heaviness but with great friends and a crazy family to keep me busy… a few days to relax may be all I get 😀
