600th Post & TWQ: Hippie Names
Yes, it's both the 600th Post plus a TWQ today, so there is a lot to do today. Let's see what the TWQ (The Weekend Question)is:
We see some odd hippie names, like Moon Unit etc. If you had the chance to rename your hypothetical hippie family (mother, father, son, daughter), what names would you choose?
My answers are:
Now it's over to you.....
Now regarding the 600th Post, it's hard to believe that after nearly three years, I have reached this point. I can recall the time..
"Oh, stop being so boring, Jean-Luc, it's like listening to Data drone on without contracting."
"Q!" I exclaim, "What do you want, I'm doing this very important post."
"Yes, yes, I know." he answers, "Do you think you know how to do these? You answer them like you're going to do one of those endless speeches to Admiirals that send them all to sleep. You'll have every one that sees your post drifting off elsewhere. Here. This will keep them..."
"Q!" you're interfering with my post, now...."
"I'm trying to help you, Jean-Luc." he says, "You have a very haphazard crew. Every other starship travels around normally, but not the Enterprise. You seem so frought with disasters, getting boarded by aliens, entering parallel universes, time travel, getting turned into a criminal. This doesn't happen with any other Captain....except the delightful Kathryn, but that's another story."
"Q!" I shout, "Just go away and let me..."
"Of course, the nature of your crew doesn't help." he continues, "What other starship has a Chief Engineer with those shades, an android, a donut eating Commander, a barmaid that is 600 years old, a Counselor who can read thoughts, a Borg drone, a red headed female doctor that fancies you, who has a disaster prone son with an Amazonian fiance, a holographic doctor who sings opera, a Klingon with a bad temper, a Trill, an insolent girl who spends more time in the brig and a rebel from to centuries ago that came from a mirror universe?"
"Don't forget being tormented by a being from another Continuum." I retort.
"Touche, Jean-Luc." he replies.
"Look, Q" I tell him, "I'm running out of time to do my speech. I'll have to leave it."
"Then I'm sure the readers will be thanking me for doing them a favour." he answers, "Until the next time, goodbye."
Q vanishes, leaving me just enough room to thank you all for visiting my Journal throughout the 600 posts.
