The Naked Stars

I have seen what heaven looks like to Suit today. It was a truly unique experience.

New Hampshire Tax Free Liquor Store

They had many wonderful things there, including Goslings 151 and Goslings Old Rum. Furthermore, I got some great prices on a couple of other things I needed for my liquor cabinet. You know, I have to do something more with that blender.

Ask for it by name.

Or don't.
See if I care.

Actually, the night before I left for Maine, I actually did make that chocolate shake with the Patron coffee liquor in it. It was quite delicious, but I think it needs something more. I will be experimenting and will report upon the results.

John M. Ford's The Final Reflection is one of the best Star Trek novels I had ever read. It is no longer cannon, as there have since been many contradictory elements revealed in the other sources. Nevertheless, it is a great read, and paints a very detailed picture of Klingon culture, making it a thing of harsh beauty instead of the two-dimensional villains that they were usually depicted as up until that time. An example:

... and though I had slain a thousand foes less one,
The thousandth knife had found my liver;
The thousandth enemy said to me,
"Now you shall die, and none shall know."
And the fool looking down believed this,
Not seeing, above his shoulder, the naked stars,
Each one remembering.
