Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-04-10

  • Apparently the pod they stole from the set of 2001 runs on premium unleaded… #startrek http://tweetphoto.com/16933783 #
  • @walshcaitlin It's kinda sad that you say "Beverly going crazy episode" and I immediately know the title is "Remember Me" #startrek #TNG in reply to walshcaitlin #
  • @alyankovic Three by Three with animal style fries and a large Dr Pepper. Dammit, now I want that too. in reply to alyankovic #
  • Ah, Kevin Thomas Reilly. "You know what his problem was? He wasn't born an Irishman." (Yes, I'm watching TOS. Can you tell?) #
  • "Sir, Security reports a disturbance: Mr. Sulu, chasing crewmen… with a sword?!" #
  • Sulu: "I'll take you, fair lady!" Uhura: "Sorry, neither!" #
  • "Attention, crewmembers, this is Captain Riley. There will be a formal dance this evening… in the bowling alley." #
  • WTF? Spock's using a slide rule?! LOL #
  • "Ah can't change the laws o' physics! Ah've *got* to have thirty minutes!" #
  • @ArcticMandy It's what was used before calculators were invented; one part slides to line up numbers with the other half for calculation #
  • LOL McCoy sprays the hypo through everyone else's shirts, but not Kirk's – for Kirk, he rips the shoulder off the shirt to inject the hypo #
  • Sulu:"My chronometer's running… *backward,* sir." Kirk:"Time warp!" Yes, ladies & gents, six eps in and Star Trek has already time travel #
  • Eat *that,* everyone who complained about the time travel in Enterprise :p #
  • @ArcticMandy That's nothing. Have you seen the panels from the old 60s and 70s Trek comics I've been posting the last few days? in reply to ArcticMandy #
  • @ArcticMandy Gas pumps for the shuttle craft, Kirk didn't know what a black hole was, Kirk's disguise is a huge afro, etc… in reply to ArcticMandy #
  • "On Earth, today is Thanksgiving. If the crew has to eat synthetic meatloaf, I want it to look like turkey." #
  • "Bridge, this is the ship's galley. I put meatloaf in the ovens, but there's turkeys in there now. Real turkeys!" #
  • I just noticed… Charlie's playing 3D chess against Spock, but in the foreground, one of the boards has checkers on it. 3D checkers? #
  • "There are a million things in this universe you can have, and a million things you can't have." #
  • "It's no fun facing that, but that's the way things are." #
  • Add that to "Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Star Trek" #
  • Once again, Kirk has his shirt off. I think it was a requirement in the Shat's contract that he be shirtless every episode #
  • Yes, but both are fun films to watch RT @afoolishwit Clash of the Titans is to Greek mythology as The Matrix is to the Bible. #
  • Drat. Wireless in the house has been down for the past hour; will have to wait 'til morning to be able to reset the router… #
  • Considering that it's 5am and I have to leave for my grandparents' house in 7 hours, it'd be nice if I could've gotten some sleep last night #
  • As soon as these brownies are done, I'm off to my grandparents' house for a family get-together #
  • @theisb OK, now you're just hitting the keyboard at random in reply to theisb #
  • Cousin's kid jumped on the couch with me right as an earthquake started, didn't even notice the house shaking for a few seconds… #fb #
  • @dannymcguffin I hear the quake was centered near San Diego; how's everything down there? #
  • @aprilhebert Quake wasn't too bad out my way, just some shaking like someone bouncing next to you while you're in bed in reply to aprilhebert #
  • Weird thing is, after the quake stopped, my phone rebooted itself for some unknown reason… #
  • Eggs and bakey! RT @MrShimasaki: Quakey quakey! #
  • @ArcticMandy This one wasn't too bad. Kind of like jumping on a waterbed in reply to ArcticMandy #
  • @theisb She's taking the auditions to be the next Flash too literally in reply to theisb #
  • Oddly, after the quake, I picked up my Bible and it opened up to Revelation chapter 6. o.O Cue the Twilight Zone theme lol #
  • TV news: OMG THERE'S A 5% CHANCE WE'LL HAVE A BIGGER QUAKE!!1! Me: In other words, Chicken Little, a 95% chance nothing will happen #
  • TV news: HERE'S MOAR VIDEO OF WATER SPLASHING IN POOLS! Me: Sigh. You're upset because this wasn't Haiti 2, aren't you? TV news: Who, me? #
  • USGS rep on TV: There's a lot of faults we're looking at– My grandpa: Not *my* fault. #
  • To celebrate Easter and the end of Lent, I think I might watch a zombie movie. It feels oddly appropriate. ;P #
  • Gotta love LOLing at a tweet from @wilw, then spending several minutes trying to explain the joke to an aunt who still doesn't get it. :p #
  • I've had the "tense situtation" music from TOS in my head for the last several hours. So much better than what usually gets stuck in there #
  • The #earthquake tipped over @wilw's cthulu horrorclix figure and knocked my Bible open to Revelation 6:12. It's the 'pocalypse, yo :p #
  • OK, I've been up for a good 36 hours now. Why the heck am I still not tired? Did someone put meth in my brownies or something? #
  • @aprilhebert Just 53 years to go in reply to aprilhebert #
  • @Tymethief Several of my students complain that a paragraph is too much to read, too. in reply to Tymethief #
  • W00t! Online tracking confirms my comics are currently "out for delivery" #fb #
  • It's heeere!! Man, it looks better than I expected! http://tweetphoto.com/17291276 #
  • Apparently my lunch costs seben sebendy-tree today #
  • You know you just bought a whole lotta comics when the store owner throws in a long box for you to take them home #
  • @theisb I agree; Batman was still quite effective even after his identity was revealed to the public in Kingdom Come in reply to theisb #
  • Got my comic from @ka_blam today and it looks great! Just waiting for @indyplanet to post the link; once it's up, I'll let everybody know. #
  • I have three words for this: "Tag and Bink." 'Nuff said. RT @reuters: Lucasfilm plans animated Star Wars series http://bit.ly/bY76F3 #
  • Just saw a guy wearing a desert camo hoodie… Seriously? I wore camo every day for 6 years; it shouldn't be a fashion statement. #
  • I swear, twice today I've heard someone use the term "information superhighway." What is this, 1995? #
  • Getting lunch; an old man is on his cell phone 15 feet away and I can clearly hear the other person because he's got the volume up so high #
  • Sneak peek at page 4 of issue 2. Finishing the pencils. I'm a lot behind schedule, but I'm trying to catch up http://tweetphoto.com/17413464 #
  • Awesome. Watching a show where a server blade sparks and the lights go out, then a character says, "*Clearly,* that wasn't good." #
  • "OK, women and geeks first! Oh, wait, that's all of us." #
  • been watching Sanctuary season 1 via Netflix streaming… Not a bad show, though I'm still not used to Tapping without her Sam Carter accent #
  • Wow. The @syfy movie jokes are flying left and right in this one. "Glad I didn't say sharktopus" #
  • @MrShimasaki Don't kick da baby in reply to MrShimasaki #
  • @studentrally28 Click the "Following" link on the right column of the twitter.com page; select "unfollow" in the gear dropdown by each name in reply to studentrally28 #
  • Netbook screen's irritating me; got a headache & turned the brightness down, but it keeps turning the brightness back up #
  • Well, best cure I've ever found for bad headaches like this is to sleep it off, and I need to go to bed anyhow. G'night, all. #
  • Woke up feeling very weird, like reality isn't quite real. Class in 40 minutes, so I need to head out the door… #
  • Just read a story on yet another Tiger mistress, plus one who's demanding an apology. Lady, YOU should be the one apologizing–to his wife! #
  • Oh, hey, this is post #2376 I completely missed #2375 when the Dominion War ended and Voyager completely neutered the Borg. #
  • And this is #2377 when Voyager added insult to injury with its series finale. They get back to Earth in the last five seconds? WTF? #
  • Both DS9 and TNG spent their entire two-hour finale episodes bookending the series and wrapping up storylines. But not Voyager… #
  • No, apparently having a finale that was a thematic bookend (start/end with Q's courtroom, Prophets) wasn't as cool as Borg and 'sploshuns #
  • So instead of harkening back to the Caretaker and the events that stranded them 70K light years away, we get neutered Borg. Again. #
  • Oh, hey, I missed #2380 which was Star Trek: Nemesis, where they hyped up a movie with Romulans and gave us a human clone for a villain #
  • We barely even saw the Romulans in that one. Nearly every Romulan character was killed off in the first five minutes. #
  • Not to mention the movie inexplicably ignoring nearly everything post-1994. They had to write 8 novels to explain all the inconsistencies #
  • Reminds me of the girl who texted the Haiti number about 190 times RT @mashable Kid Racks Up $1400 Debt in FarmVille http://bit.ly/aECebH #
  • Oh, I missed #2387 too… that's when Romulus got blowed up reeal good and Spock and Nero got shot back in time 130 years, changing history #
  • @MrShimasaki Actually, the Twitter web interface is apparently no longer displaying @-replies in the timeline unless it's directed at you… in reply to MrShimasaki #
  • Oddly enough, I haven't found a single ship so far with a registry number in of #2400 it jumps from 2392 to 2500. The search continues… #
  • (Don't you love how I work my tweet numbers into these tweets? :p) #
  • Of course, the 2500 registry is, in fact, erroneous; it was given by FASA for the Constellation, but was later contradicted by DS9 as 1974 #
  • well, both DS9 and Star Trek VI… the Constellation appeared on screen in DS9, but the registry was shown on a chart in Star Trek VI #
  • (Or, I think it was on screen. I'd have to rewatch the episode to verify) #
  • 704 eps, 22 animated eps, 11 movies, plus hundreds of books and comics, and a ton of games… it's scary I retain as much trivia as I do #
  • Once I can get some published comics under my belt as a resume, maybe I could convince IDW to let me write a Trek comic… lol #
  • Saw some guys in their 20s playing with Pokewalkers the other day. I felt a little embarrassed for them, and that says a lot coming from me #
  • I missed #2409 but it was for a good cause. 😛 That's the year that the new Star Trek MMO, Star Trek Online, takes place. #
  • Angels vs. Minnesota Twins… Nosebleeds. http://tweetphoto.com/17704242 #
  • For about .1 second I thought the crowd was cheering for the pretzel guy. Then I saw there was a guy on 1st #
  • Because one game at a time isn't enough http://tweetphoto.com/17706573 #
  • My section keeps trying to start a wave, but it keeps dying 1/3 of the way around the stadium. Just made the 8th unsuccessful attempt #
  • Per @wilw, this team is actually the Los Angeles Angels of we're not really from LA or even LA county but we want you to think so of Anaheim #
  • According to @gimliaxewielder I'm posting at least once per inning. This will be the second for the 5th inning, so there! :p #
  • Saw some ppl with beers that had flashing lights in the base of the cup… Drunk seizures? #
  • Rally Monkey came up on screen… @gimliaxewielder: "I hate that monkey." #
  • Little boy a couple rows down is channeling Lando Calrissian: "It's not my fault!!!" #
  • Teenager near me is near tears after being assaulted by a moth the size of a small bird #
  • And now the 6 boys are playing Truth or Dare… Maybe that's why the kid was nearly hysterical #
  • Aaand the Twins just scored 3 more runs, bringing the score to 6-1 in the 8th inning… Yeah, I think the Angels are getting trounced #
  • Kid in the seat behind me on his phone: "These are the worst seats EVAR!" #
  • Well, 9th inning… Twins up 6-1… They score a run, then a homer with bases loaded… At which point 80% of the crowd gets up and leaves #
  • @MrShimasaki Angels were getting their asses handed to them… Barely anything happened until the 6th inning in reply to MrShimasaki #
  • Next weekend: Kingdom-Con in San Diego on Fri-Sat, then Anaheim Comic Con on Sun… #
  • In line at the Post Office and suddenly one of the tellers says to the others in a panic: "Uh-oh, we have supervisor here now!" #
  • Just heard a friend say: "Oh, balls! THAT'S what I'm missing! … No, I'm NOT missing my balls!" #
  • Would if I could but I can't RT @theisb Who all's going to HeroesCon in Charlotte, June 4-6? #
