Joan Wheeler has the flu (sniffle, sneeze) – the weather is crummy – and I got a great story to finish reading anyway! March 13, 2013

So today, Wednesday, March 13, 2013, 2pm,  I was supposed to be in court to do battle with Joan Wheeler. I filed harassment charges against her back in January because she contacted my job with false accusations of me committing computer fraud. Then she brags about this criminal act on Huffington Post.

Well, I just got a call from my lawyer – we have to postpone because Joan “has the flu.” oh dear! This is why they give out free flu shots. I got mine the first week in January.

Listen, the flu shot will NOT “give” you the flu. You might have a slightly sore arm – just take some tylenol and move the arm to distrubute the vaccine. And time it right. I got my shot just after work one morning, knowing I would be off the next 3 days. And with no immediate plans to go anywhere or do anything, I just rested and watched some DVDs.

So now I’m free for the day. The weather is rather dull and crummy. Gray and dreary, cold with a few snowflakes. Who wants to go out in that kind of weather? I got some housework to do. But first — I have something to do.

Yesterday, I found a GREAT fan-fiction story of the meeting and budding romance of Sarek and Amanda – the parents of Mr. Spock of Star Trek. It is called The Vulcan’s Wife.” click here to get to the story.   The author only gives the screenname of Aphrodite420. She is a great writer. This story will have you laughing, almost crying. The whole gamut of emotions – of which, we know Vulcans DO have, they just suppress them.

So yesterday, I only got to chapter 30. And now I can go and finish it.

If any of you readers are Star Trek fans, go check out the story – you will love it. There are some sex scenes, nothing really too explicit or smutty. But you will enjoy it.

To whet your appetite, here are a couple of pictures of Sarek and Amanda as they appeared in the original Star Trek series, (Mark Lenard and Jane Wyatt) and the 2011 movie (Ben Cross and Winona Ryder). I also found some fan paintings on the internet. Enjoy!

Our Day Will Come!! she can’t hide forever, she has to appear in court to answer the charges against her, she did the crime, she’ll have to do the time!

Ruth here – Right Gert. meanwhile, I forgot to put this picture up – It’s a family portrait of Sarek, Amanda, and their young son Spock – who must be forced to exhibit a smile for the camera:

She probably did get a flu shot. She’s either lying or the Universe is trying to do away with her sooner rather than later. :)

I don’t know Paula – she may be telling the truth – or not. That’s the trouble with habitual liars – you don’t know when they ARE telling the truth. As to your statement that the universe is trying to do away with her — you may be more right than you know. — She’s ALWAYS sick with something or other. Because she doesn’t take care of herself. And I don’t just mean physically – I mean spiritually! Hanging on to so much negativity just drags a person down. She even says so in her book! She describes how she was so full of self-loathing she was drinking, doing drugs, driving drunk, not eating, not bathing, not washing her hair, not cooking for her kids. (what a life those poor kids must have had). She’s been in therapy for more than 30 years and STILL hasn’t gotten any better. Why? BECAUSE SHE DOESN’T WANT TO GET BETTER. She wants the attention. She craves the sympathy. If you REALLY look at what she says and writes – it’s ALWAYS “poor poor pitiful Joan. Woe is me. I had a fucked up life – feel sorry for me. ” And when you don’t feel sorry for her – beware – you are placed on her list of people she will get back at.

When my lawyer told me yesterday she had the flu, I didn’t say it to him – but in my mind, I said, “yeah — right.”

But hey! Like I said above – I really really didn’t want to go out yesterday. It was cold, windy. Downtown Buffalo gets the wind right off Lake Erie – I was NOT looking forward to it. – and today is less windy, but still cold. And I already informed the hubby we are NOT going shopping today. – it will wait until tomorrow. I have to go out tomorrow evening anyway – going ghost-hunting! Got my digital recorder ready. – Buying a digital thermometer and a K2 meter next month. Then I’ll need a spirit box and an Ovolus – these are devices that actually let the ghost “speak” to you using electronics.

And tonight – tonight I will finish up reading the Sarek and Amanda story. — oh, can’t wait!

–Ruth here again – speaking of Amanda – I was watching an old VCR tape this morning while I was working out – the 2009 Halloween Ghost Hunters Special. I had used an old tape that had several episodes of Hercules the Legendary Journeys. (I have the entire Hercules series and entire Xena series on DVD, so I taped over some of the episodes) One of the episodes that didn’t get erased was called Prince Hercules and guest starred actress Sam Jenkins. As I watched Sam – I realized that she is how I imagine the young Amanda Grayson to be. Here is Sam in her role in the episode Prince Hercules. She came and guested in another couple of episodes — and lucky girl — she married the star of the show Kevin Sorbo. I’ve included a picture of them on their wedding day. – In fact, I just finished Kevin’s book “True Strength” – chronciling how he suffered a stroke just 3 months before they married. And how Sam fought for him to find the strength to fight for his health. She is a remarkable woman. – just like Amanda.

Ruth here again – talking Trek – why do I imagine Sam as the young Amanda? Why not Winona Ryder? Because I think of Beetlejuice when I see Winona!

I couldn’t accept her as Amanda in the 2009 movie – I could accept Ben Cross as Sarek. That was hard enough to accept anyone other than the late Mark Lenard as Sarek. But I have gone on record stating that I do NOT accept the new Star Trek. Chris Pine is good as Kirk, Bruce Greenwood as Pike, and Karl Urban as McCoy. As much Zachary Quinto resembles Nimoy – his Spock is too stiff. Nimoy’s Spock flowed with natural energy. And I hated a skinny fashion model as Uhura. They should have gone with Sanaa Lathan (Aliens vs. Predators) to portray Uhura. And I cannot accept a love affair between Uhura and Spock. 

 JJ Abrahms – the producer of the new Trek – has gone on record saying he is NOT a Trek fan. Then why is doing Trek? — He has killed Star Trek for me.  – At least any new Trek. I still have the entire original series and animated series and Star Trek Enterprise on dvd. As well as all the movies (yes, even this hated one), and several seasons of Next Gen, Deep Space 9 and Voyager on dvd. Am working on completing my collection. I also have an extensive library of Star Trek novels, magazines and fanzines.

And keeping with my love of Trek, I head up a local Star Trek fan-group, The USS Ari – a starship – of which I am the commanding officer – rank: Captain. – and will be working on our newsletter next week for our meeting next month – the first since the onset of winter.
