*waves* Some Wyoming RV parks apparently have wireless, who knew? Hurrah for modern technology!
In between stopping at beautiful places to let my jaw stretch out and exercise my picture-taking finger, and occasionally stopping at less beautiful places to buy candy and exercise my aunt and uncle's herd of dogs, I have been immersing myself in the new Star Trek fandom. (has there been a consensus on an acronym yet? I'm fond of AOS myself, but I always refer to it as "the reboot" in conversation. ST:XI is just awkward to type.)
It's a weird experience, this fandom. I've never felt so familiar and comfortable with a universe before, while simultaneously feeling like the biggest newbie EVER and having that new-canon thrill. I didn't even feel this ignorant in my *first* fandom. (Perhaps I have gained fannish wisdom, knowing that I do not know anything, or something.) Whatever is going on, I'm writing fic, so help me. It may even get finished!
In the meantime, watching TOS (series and movies) is providing interesting food for thought.( wittering and fannishness )
One last note: William Shatner (and therefore TOS Kirk) has grey eyes. GREY. I realize the filter on the show makes it difficult to tell, but internet research and careful observation have led me to the truth: not brown, not hazel, not green, not hypnotic pools of green. Grey.
I should go to sleep now. I'm going whitewater rafting in the morning! (don't hate me Lindsey)
