Quote Friday: DS9

Quote012

“I’m no writer, but if I were, it seems to me I’d want to poke my head up every once in a while and take a look around; see what’s going on. It’s life, Jake. You can miss it if you don’t open your eyes.”
~Benjamin Sisko, Star Trek: Deep Space 9

TV Tuesday: Shows to Clean To

Every May I (attempt to) do a pretty thorough cleaning and sprucing up of my house. I take time off work, I put a little money into projects that need a kickstart, and I give myself an excuse to clean things more than usual. I don’t like to watch anything new during that time because that would mean me sitting and staring at a screen instead of being up and about and cleaning. So I like to put on shows in the background that I’ve seen a bunch of times and don’t feel bad about missing bits of.

This spring, I rewatched:

  • NoahsArc
    Noah’s Arc: one little mention of it in a discussion with a friend and I had to watch the whole series again, minus the terrible movie, sorry boys; it really wasn’t very good. But the series is awesome and will always have a place in my heart.
  • charmed_2
    Charmed: I started rewatching it in December and only made it about 3 seasons in, so I picked up there and finished it off again. I’ve probably watched this show more than any other in the world when it comes to rewatches, but not usually all in a row because I typically used to catch whatever was playing on TNT.
  • StarTrekDS9
    Star Trek: Deep Space 9: I’ve seen the first two seasons several times, which was all I got through during May, but I’ve only made it through the rest of the show once a few years back; this was a nice excuse to fall in love again.

In addition to being great background accompaniment to housework, I love rewatching good shows. There’s something so enjoyable in marathoning a show that I know so well I can recite bits along with it. It’s like a familiar rhythm or song you can’t help feeling part of. That kind of familiarity always makes me smile (even if things aren’t going so well for the characters during that particular episode).

Top Ten: Fandom Couples (Het Version)

I just realized I forgot to write a Top Ten list this week! Oops! Better late than never. The topic of this list was suggested by one of my blog followers (thanks so much).

Craft: Star Trek Ornaments

As I seem to be in a Star Trek mood during this part of the month… I might as well take advantage of that with my craft posts (I think I missed the last scheduled one; oops!)

StarTrekOrnaments1

Here are some Star Trek ornaments I made last year for a swap. My partner said she liked The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine the best, so I made ornaments inspired by com communicator badges from both those series.

One is a stuffie, made of felt, the other made of sparkly pipe cleaners.
