Twas The Star Trek Night Before Christmas

Twas a Star Trek Christmas
One of the Ten Nights Before Christmas at

'Twas the night before Christmas on the Enterprise-D,
On a routine short hop to Starbase 03,
With Data on duty in the command chair,
At Warp 6, the Enterprise soon would be there.

Just for something to do while the other crew slept,
He scanned where historical records were kept --
And with a blink of his eye and a cock of his head,
"Intriguing! Tomorrow is Christmas!" he said.

But no one was stirring, and he sought to find why,
And so he buzzed Geordi, who awoke with a sigh:
"Christmas? It's only an old holiday --
Now just let me get back to sleep, okay?"

"But is to wish Merry Christmas not human to do?"
And so Data wished it -- to the whole ship and crew.
Everyone on the Enterprise awoke from this clatter --
Picard rushed to the bridge to see what was the matter.

"What is the meaning of this noise, Mister Data?"
"Sir, is it not Christmas--?" "We'll discuss it much later!"

Just then Worf said, "Captain -- a Klingon Prey Bird!
Its hull has been damaged -- it's uncloaking, sir."
"On screen," said Picard, as the Klingon ship hailed:
"Federation vessel, our Life Support systems have failed!

A strange ship attacked us, inflicting the worst,
(though naturally, of course, we'd fired on it first)."

The Klingons beamed over, and the senior staff met,
To try and determine the source of the threat.
Said Picard, "Mister Data, an assignment for you:
Give all of these Klingons something to do!
They think it's the Romulans we should look for,
Get them all off the bridge, before there's a war!"

So Data departed, while the rest of the crew
Wondered: Romulans? Ferengi? If not them, then who?

Said Worf, "Sir -- disturbance on Holodeck Three!"
The entire bridge crew ran down there to see.
Roared Picard, "Mister Data, what the devil is this!!"
"Sir, I have taught the Klingons how to celebrate Christmas."

And so there they were -- on holodecks 3, 4 and 5
With synthohol, singing and Rokeg Blood Pie!
Soon the Big E was rocking with holiday cheer
Friend,foe, and family came from both far and near.

The Romulans showed up with some Romulan Ale,
The Ferengi brought goodies for free -- not for sale!
But a strange ship was coming, the captain was told,
With one crew member only, and a huge cargo hold.

Said the Klingons, "It's the strange ship that fought us -- attack!"
Said Picard, "On Christmas? -- Mister Worf, just hold back."
And then as the ship came into view,
Onscreen came its captain -- none other than Q!

He wore a white beard and a suit of deep red...
"Joyeux Noel, mon captain," was what Santa Q said.
"Tell those Klingons next time to not go so berserk.
You need good defense systems in this line of work.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be warping away...
Did you think anyone else could do this job in one day?"

"I'm sensing emotion," said Counselor Troi,
"Peace in the galaxy, Good Will and Joy."
And they stood on the bridge and watched Q take flight,

Wall-E Subtext and review

Wall-E ! So much subtext that I certainly won't attempt to bring it all to the forefront when you can find those easter eggs and subtexts elsewhere, but the first thing I have to say about Disney Pixar Wall-SE is that for Pixar, the bar has been set soooooo high, it was unbelievable how far they could exceed expectations. PEOPLE CLAPPED AT THE END OF THIS MOVIE. I have never been to a movie where that happened.

Walmart is the villian here. Make no mistake that as much as we love having Walmart to sell us everything in one place, all that in one place ends up in the trash ..and thats our future.

Christian Religious subtext including EVE the robot as the giver of life and who is responsible for giving a humanless Earth humans again.

Many references to 2001 and Kubrick including two musical selections and the ode to Hal .

Many hidden references to other Pixar gems and of course the ever present John Ratzenberger who has been in every Pixar movie.

Star Wars and Star Trek references ....the Final Frontier in the Buy N Large bon voyage ad.

It comes to mind that perhaps at Pixar, somebody might have said at one point, "do you think this movie might have tooo much love story for the kiddies?" and fortunately, someone said , "why don't we put in MORe love story." Big risks were taken in the movie ...from the abundance of sap between Eve and Wall-E to the way that kids and adults both felt uneasy with the start of the movie and the shape that the future world is found in(kept looking for Will Smith), to the facxt that there is almost no dialogue in the movie. Big Risk, Big Reward !

And most everyone noticed the dig at George Bush when the president in the face of obvious failure and disaster exclaims "stay the course!" I would have stood up and cheered for Mission Accomplished.

There was a great slam of Big Oil with the sea of sludge.

And if there was one thing that felt a little awful at the end, it was that as happy as we all were that Eve and Wall-E were together again, we had genuine concern for the ships residents who had an upcoming miserable existance on the earth that they had landed on. NEVER leave before the credits at a PIXAR movie, and the primitive type graphics told the story of how they rebuilt civilization.

I am pretty sure that an animated film has never been nominated for best picture by Oscar. If this one is not, there will be many people with legitimate gripes. Wall-E is an unbelievable masterpiece

Wall-E Trivia

YoooHaaa Present Disney Pixar Trivia - Wall-E Trivia

President Elect Barack Obama Speech in Chicago November 4 2008 Election Night

HoneyHoney is the group whose album is a breath of fresh air. It sounds like it belongs in a Tarantino movie. Toy Gun is alot peoples favorite song.

Watching Fox Network

Really enjoying Fringe from Fox TV these days (returns in 90 seconds) ...realizing that I liked it alot more when it was called X files ....No doubt you just replace the female lead with Scully and it's not much diff than the same...on the episode with the giant butt alien plug they pretty much quit hiding it. I kept waiting for Cartman from southpark to complain about his anal probe. (still the funniest episode of tv ever ..cartman gets an anal probe)

Springsteen and Billy Joel to Play this Fundraiser ...HOPE for TV Pay Per View or HBO !
Purchase your ticket using the this link.
Tickets must be purchased by October 14th.

Oh to raise the money for Obama ... Tickets are 10,ooo , 2,500 , and cheap seats for 500 bucks. Now ..I have to believe that if they wanted this fundraiser with Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and friends to increase in value, I would think you could add Tina Fey.

Somewhere you can find an mp3 of Joel doing Thunder Road ---dont know if Bruce covered Allentown

Noooo Mike Delfino isn't dead right ?

You can't kill Mike Delfino on Desperate Housewives right ? OK... good.

I keep thinking what other shows could use the five year flash forward.

Scouring The Internet for Hot Sara Palin Pictures ???

OK ...I went there....for the website of course... ( ) I went on the search for HOT sara palin pictures ... and as far as I can tell, sara palin's boobs aren't in view ever. Barely a cleavage shot (pictured below), one can't deny that she has GREAT eyes (add many adjectives to GREAT) and dandy legs (if you are into that kind of thing) ... but barely anything considered erotic or dirty images ...and certainly nothing in bikini or nude of course .... so for now anyway, nothing really to report but these few shots (and a few more on ).

Brooks and Dunn -Only in America lyrics - Obama Song at Democratic Convention in Denver

Brooks and Dunn
Only in America
played as Obama Finished his Democratic Nomination Speech
August 29 2008

Sun coming up over New York City
School bus driver in a traffic jam
Starin' at the faces in her rearview mirror
Looking at the promise of the Promised Land
One kid dreams of fame and fortune
One kid helps pay the rent
One could end up going to prison
One just might be president

Only in America
Dreaming in red, white and blue
Only in America
Where we dream as big as we want to
We all get a chance
Everybody gets to dance
Only in America

Sun going down on an La. freeway
Newlyweds in the back of a limousine
A welder's son and a banker's daughter
All they want is everything
She came out here to be an actress
He was the singer in a band
They just might go back to Oklahoma
And talk about the stars they could have been

Only in America
Where we dream in red, white and blue
Only in America
Where we dream as big as we want to
We all get a chance
Everybody gets to dance
Only in America

Yeah only in America
Where we dream in red, white and blue
Yeah we dream as big as we want to

Barack Obama met his wife ......

At the democratic national convention barack obama on monday night said that he had asked out Michelle a couple of times before she finally said yes to the offer of ice cream. And I thought...given his use of cocaine early in life....his line might have been ...

"you haven't had a coke float like the one I can get you..."

the brick - another email forward

the brick --another wide and wise email forward
A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something. As his car passed, no children appeared . Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door! He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to the spot where the brick had been thrown. The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against a parked car shouting, 'What was that all about and who are you? Just what the heck are you doing? That's a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why did you do it?' The young boy was apologetic. 'Please, mister...please, I'm sorry but I didn't know what else to do,' He pleaded. 'I threw the brick because no one else would stop...' With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a spot just around a parked car. 'It's my brother, 'he said. 'He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up.' Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, 'Would you please help me get him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and he's too heavy for me.'

Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump in his throat. He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything was going to be okay. 'Thank you and may God bless you,' the grateful child told the stranger. Too shook up for words, the man simply watched the boy! push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home.

It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the dented side door. He kept the dent there to remind him of this message: 'Don't go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention!' God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we don't have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It's our choice to listen or not.

Mayonnaise Jar and Two Beers

Another E-mail Forward

The Mayonnaise Jar and 2 Beers

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 Beers.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous 'yes.'

The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

'Now,' said the professor as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things---your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions---and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.

The sand is everything else---the small stuff. 'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

'Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first---the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.'

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor smiled and said, 'I'm glad you asked.'

The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.'

I knew about the red light on cars, but not the *77
It was about 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a friend. An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on. Lauren's parents have always told her never to pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather to wait until they get to a gas station, etc.

Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly called *77 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if there were police cars where she was and there weren't, and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back up already on the way.

Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind her. One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground. The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes.

I never knew about the *77 Cell Phone Feature, but especially for a woman alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarked car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going to a safe & quiet place. You obviously need to make some signals that you acknowledge them (i.e. put on your hazard lights) & call *77 like Lauren did.

Too bad the cell phone companies don't generally give you this little bit of wonderful information.

*Speaking to a service representative at ** Bell ** Mobility confirmed that *77 was a direct link to State trooper info. So, now it's your turn to let your friends know about *7 7.

Send this to every woman (and person) you know; it may save a life. This applies to ALL 50 states.

Kids & Toddlers Say The Funniest Things

JACK (age 3) was watching his Mom breast-feeding his new baby sister. After a while he asked: 'Mom why have you got two? Is one for hot and one for cold milk?'

MELANIE (age 5) asked her Granny how old she was. Granny replied she was so old she didn't remember any more. Melanie said, 'If you don't remember you must look in the back of your panties. Mine say five to six.'

STEVEN (age 3) hugged and kissed his Mom good night. 'I love you so much that when you die I'm going to bury you outside my bedroom window.'

BRITTANY (age 4) had an earache and wanted a pain killer. She tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration, her Mom explained it was a child-proof cap and she'd have to open it for her. Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked: 'How does it know it's me?'

SUSAN (age 4) was drinking juice when she got the hiccups. 'Please don't give me this juice again,' she said, 'It makes my teeth cough.'

DJ (age 4) stepped onto the bathroom scale and asked: 'How much do I cost?'

MARC (age 4) was engrossed in a young couple that were hugging and kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked his dad: 'Why is he whispering in her mouth?'

CLINTON (age 5) was in his bedroom looking worried. When his Mom asked what was troubling him, he replied, 'I don't know what'll happen with this bed when I get married. How will my wife fit in?'

JAMES (age 4) was listening to a Bible story. His dad read: 'The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city but his wife looked back and was turned to salt.' Concerned, James asked: 'What happened to the flea?'

TAMMY (age 4) was with her mother when they met an elderly, rather wrinkled woman her Mom knew. Tammy looked at her for a while and then asked, 'Why doesn't your skin fit your face?'

The Sermon I think this Mom will never forget.... this particular Sunday sermon...'Dear Lord,' the minister began, with arms extended toward heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. 'Without you, we are but dust...' He would have continued but at that moment my very obedient daughter who was listening leaned over to me and asked quite audibly in her shrill little four year old girl voice, 'Mom, what is butt dust?'

Brooke White to WIN AI Season 7

American Idol Thoughts from the AMERICAN IDOL HALL OF FAME PAGE from YOOOHAAA.COM

I thought for the most part..the right ones were voted out in top 24 week 2. Those girls are sure a huggy kissy crying bunch aren't they? After the week one elminations of our boy Colton destined for Broadway, Garrett destined for whatever Peter Frampton or Leif Garret biopic comes out, forgettable Joanne and Amy in the rear view mirror as well, we see that
Robbie Carrico was ripe to go ...Jason is too much of a lounge singer amd too boring ....Chickezie and Luke are still on the boys chopping block for next week I think. I had Alaina going this week all along ...but a bit surprised at talented Alexandrea going this week. I have to say ...even though Kady the Lady is on the block now for next week...WE HOPE she pulls through and sticks around long enough to make the tour. SHE is just damn fun. Lov Her

Top 8 Boys:

David Archuleta 1 (had him here from the preseason---no doubt he is the male one to beat and will be a superstar ..has more to offer than perhaps any previous American Idol...I think he is THE ONE that they have been looking for, and kinda found with Carrie...David will be BIG -HOWEVER, I am still projecting a lady to win it...David the runner up)

Jason Castro 2 (after the amazing debut, another solid performance this week keeps him to top)

Michael Johns 3 (rocker field is crowded ..gets here on charisma)

Danny Noriega 4 (I still say he is too queeny for the girls to vote for...much less guys ..NOT that there is anything wrong with being queeny...but we will see)

David Cook 5 (REAL tasty guitar licks...will anyone care ?..can we get over the squinty eyes ?)

David Hernandez 6 (I am keeping him down here again.... He HAS had two bang up performances though. )

Luke Menard 7 (sorry dog...should be gone)

Chikezie Eze 8 (better but still ugh)

Top 12 Girls:
Not alot of movement in this list this week


Amanda Overmyer 2 (Really Sang AWFUL but has a fan following that will pull her through to the final 4 I think. Still COULD GET LOST IN THE SHEER NUMBER OF GOOD ROCKERS THIS YEAR)

Carly Smithson 3
MAY LOSE ON THE LACK OF UNDERDOG FACTOR ALONE. Sings great but we know her background too well.

Ramiele Malubay 4
ehhhhh ok

Asia'H Epperson 5
ehhhhh ok again

Syesha Mercado 6
can win this if she hits a couple of home runs

Kristy Lee Cook 7 CANNOT win this if she hits 10 home runs
(down from 6 last week)

Kady Malloy 9
(We are rethinking the "can win it" statement from last week...but hopes she sticks around.

The Funny Side Of The McCain Extramarital Affair Presents The Funnier Side of the John McCain Extramarital Affair

Boy oh boy, did you read about John McCain, ladies and gentlemen? Did you read about John McCain? Oh, well, according to the New York Times now, John McCain may have had an inappropriate relationship with a young blond. That sounds like presidential material to me." --David Letterman

"I mean, think about it, John McCain and with a young blond, and this was interesting: out of force of habit, Hillary is standing by him." --David Letterman

Today's New York Times is claiming that John McCain, who is 71 years old, had an inappropriate relationship with a woman who is a Washington lobbyist. The good news is there's no footage. Political experts say this could be a huge scandal for McCain because he's married and the woman he's accused of having an affair with is 31 years younger than he is. In a related story, earlier today McCain was endorsed by Bill Clinton." --Conan O'Brien

"There was a big story in The New York Times today about Senator John McCain, who's running for president. It questioned his ties to a lobbyist named Vicki Iseman. The story 'hinted' that McCain may have had an extramarital affair with her, but the weird thing is she looks almost exactly like John McCain's wife, Cindy. So he might have just got confused and grabbed the wrong woman. These two look more alike than the Olson twins." --Jimmy Kimmel

"I don't know if anything happened or not, but I think the rule of thumb should be every year you're in a Vietnamese prison camp, you should be allowed one extramarital affair." --Jimmy Kimmel

"It's been a very tough day for John McCain with the New York Times' allegation that he had an affair. The paper is saying McCain had an affair, years ago, with Joan of Arc or something." --Craig Ferguson

AMerican Idol SO FAR from

Miami Auditions Jan 30, 2008
I am not shouting this from the hilltops or anything ...but I thought the girl who sang the Janis Joplin song named Shannon McGough was easily ..I mean EASILY good enough to to to Hollywood. It must sound very different in the room with the judges then what I heard on TV. And Julie Dubela who took on Janis Joplin wasn't bad either

Suzanne Toon from Clearwater Florida Sang I Can't Make You Love Me ..but she can

Natashia Blach from way out in Fort Collins, CO did an absolutely AMAZING "At Last," by Etta James
Ilsy Lorena Pino from Miami, FL sang "Unfaithful," Rihanna

Ramiele Malubay, did it all with Aretha Franklin Soul.

Syesha Mercado's did Aretha proud as well with Think / Freedom (I never heard the song called that..I thought it was just THINK)

Robbie Carrico flat out ROCKED on Skynard ...and don't be surprised if he is a top 10.

Corliss Smith could inspire as well.

Brittany Wescott has a good combination of voice and the rest of what it takes to be a star.

Omaha Auditions Jan 29, 2008
NEBRASKA ?????? ok

I for one can't wait to see singing wrestler goth chick Sarah Whitaker come off the top rope and body slam Seacrest on the finale.

the guy who sang amazingly but couldnt remember the words
Jason Rich: Farm boy who could not remember the words but sounded great. Simon has NEVER been this forgiving for anyone in any situation ever period.

Rachael Wicker: Hey ..who doesn't love a hot chick that can kick your butt at arm wrestling and then blow the roof off with her voice.

Samantha Sidley: "don't know why i didn't come." SOUNDED AWESOME.

David Cook: Inspired by Daughtry means AI fans got a clip of Daughtry before the rocker in a sweater belted out Bon Jovi.

Angelica Puente: Her dad said Ass on TV ... WHY do I feel like Beavis and Butthead reporting this fact.

Leo Marlowe: The smallest most boringest town ever ...or something like that he said....not good for the votes when you diss your hometown...even if it is 200 votes.

"Go Down Moses" James Lewis

" are my brother!" Renaldo Lapuz

"No Sex Allowed" Milo "Old Guy" Turk

Kayla Hatfield (24, Campbell, TX) was in a crash and is lucky to be alive ..possibly one of the most sympathetic "you are going to Hollywood's" ever

Joey "Biggest Loser" Catalano -I have to say ...was it to him that Simon said go get some food ? Would you say to a reformed drug addict..."you are going to Hollywood ..go get some drugs ?"

Angela Martin - Big underdog factor ?
Melanie Nyema Taylor Hicks former backup singer who has already outsold him.

Carly Smithson blew the judges away. But she is really not an amateur.

Katie (Kady) Malloy (18, Houston, TX) is the early favorite as "the best we've seen so far" from Simon. She impersonates everyone!

Alaina Whitaker (16, Tulsa, OK) was my favorite ..doing Faith Hill.

Drew Poppelreiter -Isn't one George Strait in the world enough ?

Colton Swon from Oklahoma gave it a good country boy go at it.
Pia "Zpia" Easley (24, Chicago, IL) Nice Gladys Knight
Kyle Ensley (21, Valiant, OK) wants to be a politician AND an Idol.
Jessica Brown (24, Longview, TX) is a former meth addict turning her life around
Kayla Hatfield (24, Campbell, TX)  was in a crash and is lucky to be alive ..possibly one of the most sympathetic "you are going to Hollywood's" ever

Joey "Biggest Loser" Catalano -I have to say ...was it to him that Simon said go get some food ? Would you say to a reformed drug addict..."you are going to Hollywood ..go get some drugs ?"

Angela Martin - Big underdog factor ?
Melanie Nyema Taylor Hicks former backup singer who has already outsold him.

Jose Candelaria Keep an eye on this one.

Beth Stalker -Name will be remembered


Kyle Ensley
Jonathan Baines
Nina Shaw
Melanie Nyema

You Are My Brother!
