Ok, so you haven’t. That’s ok, I don’t mind… everybody is busy, and my tiny slice of the blogosphere is but a speck in the great, wide universe, a dark, shining space teeming with other literary lights far brighter than my own. Truth is, I have about two weeks’ worth of your own posts to read, and I will get to them! But this Momma chicken has been…
LOST… IN… SPACE
(Cue theme tune and swirly sci-fi effects)
Yes, my friends. I have recently been completely and utterly bogged down with that OTHER thing that occupies my time. I believe it is called “Real Life.” Between the various demands of my volunteer work and seeking to convince the Captain of the Ship that I am not an entire failure at swabbing the decks and restocking the replicator, I have recently been circumnavigating the Tax Quadrant with my shields failing and warp coil at capacity. Thus far, the dilithium chamber has not yet exploded, so that’s something anyway.
Yes, I am mixing my sci-fi. But with the sad yet very real death of Spock on my mind, I can’t help but bring a little Trek into the mix. And then, having returned from a brief weekend leave in London, my commanding officer just informed me that my hair bore an uncanny resemblancd to the Lost in Space Robot. Perhaps I need to rethink my standard Starfleet bun!
In any case, I am back in the atmosphere with drops of Jupiter in my hair and all. I look forward to getting caught up with everyone else’s writing, and to visiting the blogs of the new followers gained in these recent weeks.
Live long and prosper, y’all…
