An Interview...a Reminder...and a Star Trek Opera

Jone MacCulloch, the fabulous youth librarian who is organizing the auctions for Bridget Zinn, interviewed me for her blog. Thanks, Jone!

Also, to all ye merry Portlanders: the live auction is tomorrow, Friday May 29th, 6:30-9 PM at the Lucky Lab Brewpub at 915 SE Hawthorne. More information here. (If you missed my first post about Bridget and why an auction is being held for her, check out my previous post.)

And for all ye merry non-Portlanders, the online auction runs until Saturday, May 30th, 11 PM PST. Check it out, great stuff is up for grabs!

I wish I could be at the Lucky Lab tomorrow night, but due to my work schedule I'll have to miss it. (The upside of working every Fri/Sat: I get to write Sun-Thurs. The downside: I have no social life. Wah).

And now, for no reason whatsoever except it's my blog and this video made me almost fall off my chair laughing, I present to you: Le Wrath di Khan. A Star Trek opera. In Italian, with subtitles. And stop-action action figures. And if that last seems like a paradox, then let your mind be free, my friend, and struggle not to comprehend, but instead admit that yes, you wish you'd thought of it first.

I'll have to wait until I get home to watch the vid, but Laura and I are BIG fans, so I can't wait! We even have a Picard action figure.

Sally, what I love most is that someone(s) spent probably an ungodly amount of time creating this and doing such a bangup job just to get a laugh. This just makes me love people. What goofballs most of us are!

Walter, I'd go for a Janeway action figure. She ROCKED. Voyager forever!

I'll post an auction roundup once I hear from folks who were there...
