I’m a giver!
Yep, sorry things were so quiet around here yesterday, but The Good Man had a day off from work, so we had a nice Monday together.
And what did we do with that Monday off?
Well. We went to the San Jose Tech Museum of Innovation.
They chronicle the history of the rise of technology. Especially fitting here in the Bay Area where so much technology got its start.
Oh, and they have an awesome hands on display that shows you how earthquakes work and how the ground liquefies. That display has done a lot to help me understand the phenomenon so well.
But that’s not why we went…
We went to see Star Trek – The Exhibition.
Complete with a replica of the bridge of the Starship Enterprise.
I sat in the captain’s chair.
Because *I* am a good partner to my sci-fi lovin’ husband.
I even leaped through the gateway to the City at the Edge of Forever (the, uh, Guardian of Forever). Oh yes I did.
Because I knew it would make him happy.
Look, I’m not a Star Trek fan. Nor am I a hater.
Ok, fine, I’d watch a few episodes in the early days when I was hanging out with my big brother. I’ve seen a few of the movies and none of the more recent series (which were heavily represented at the exhibit).
But this day was not about me. It was about The Good Man. And heck, to spend time with him, I’d endure much geekier than a bunch of costumes and gadgets!
Did I ever tell you that in the early days of dating, he took me to a Bela Lugosi film festival?
And I had a great time, too. Because when The Good Man is happy, I’m happy too.
I made him go see The Crafty Chica when she was in town, so really, fair’s fair.
Thought you might be interested, Cindy Chavez, who ran for mayor of San Jose last time, Both of her parents are/were from Carriziozo, NM. I think she was born here.
Annnnnnnnd did you memorize the http://www.sjtrek.com/trek/rules/
for a long and happy life?
Wow, I did not know that about Cindy Chavez! THAT is good knowledge!
And I'll have to give those rules a good look over! :)
I heard about this on the news. I feel bad for all the drivers this is going to affect. Like you said, not only the people who actually use the bridge are going to be affected!

Did you know that the "Guardian of Forever" was based on a legend from the borderlands of the southwest. And that the "earlier" versions (1800s) were said to have come from "NEW MEXICO!", some where south of Lordsburg. One old Twilight Zone episode, "Beyond The Rim", also told a version of this very old explorers' saga.
