I've been having fun decoupaging a pencil box to hold a gift for my parents. And I've just finished (for now) a very mediocre, if not outright bad watercolor. Playing with paints was fun, though.
I still haven't gotten around to deciding on my linoleum stamp designs. So, that's being put-off until tomorrow.
I'm still being bedeviled by headaches and backaches, despite getting plenty of sleep. At least today's headache didn't start until I'd been up for a little while.
Today's episode of Star Trek was "The Conscience of the King" (actually, I watched The Menagerie too, but didn't notice anything snark worthy)
- Lenore Karidian's fur (fake) minidress when she comes aboard to beg for a ride. I can't find a photo, which seriously upsets me.
- "All this power, throbbing and surging, yet under control." Wow, that was really damn subtle, there, Lenore.
- Riley shouldn't have been sent down to engineering to protect him. He totally deserved some pain and possible death after his stupid-ass shenanigans in The Naked Time. Especially the singing. Lenore's attempt at murder was totally deserved.
- Dude, phaser overload - why not just leave? Also, are the captain's quarters really open to anyone? Or is it just anyone of the female persuasion? Or are we supposed to infer that Lenore spent the night and popped the phaser in the light box while Kirk was freshening up?
- Are there no dental or DNA records in the 23rd Century? Kodos/Karidian and the body burned beyond recognition? Dental records were used in forensics in the 1960s. Surely a sci-fi writer could have extrapolated the idea of DNA identification.
- Lenore has a serious case of the bat-shit crazies.
- According to the Memory Alpha entry for this episode, Matt Groening named Kang and Kodos after Star Trek characters - Kang come from the episode Day of the Dove.
