Engage!

November 08, 2005


Do you feel left out three months of the year (oct, nov, dec)?
Does Santa give you no love because of your pagan beliefs?
Are you a bad girl/boy?
Is Christmas marketing doing your head in already?
Does the word 'Xmas' make you vomit?
Are you a Canadian who dreams of something else, something in between 10/31 and 12/25 to get all excited about?

ME TOO!

BlogTO has just the right potion for our woes.
What we need is another holiday at the end of November, to act as a buffer. The Americans have Thanksgiving, so the malls can be full of Puritans and turkeys long after Santa’s village gets put up in Sherway Gardens.

So let’s make up a totally commercial holiday. Let’s make every November 30 Star Trek Day. A regular Trek bacchanalia.

Why the hell not? William Shatner’s from Montreal, graduated from McGill, and got is start at the Stratford Festival. Nathan Phillips Square made a brief appearance on a Star Trek: The Next Generation episode. It’s more Canadian than Thanksgiving, anyway.

Everybody can put on Spock ears, make pilgrimages to Vulcan, Alberta, and then Do. Their. Worst. Shatner. Impression! The only fat guy in a red suit will be Scotty. And all the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, etc., etc., fans can put on their silly costumes, too.
Tis the season to be Geordi. Ahem.

Needless to say, I back this motion 100%. I think we all need to wear phazers as well. Perhaps during this holiday we should reenact specific episodes?
PS
Geordie is clearly the best.
I love you Lavar Burton and all your reading skills.

This post speaks to me. I have found my cause. After I became an aerospace engineer I thought of blinding myself purely out of Geordie hero-worship.
