first *real* snow of the season

Maaaan, it snowed and is still snowing and I'm pretty sure I left my ice thinger (why can't I think of that word?  Chipper?  No . . . ) and snow brush in the Mazda!  My logic was that the snow brush thing was green, like the Mazda, and my new car is blue.  Boviously I must have a blue ice thing.  Chipper.  SCRAPER!  Boviously I must have a blue ice scraper.

So here's a weird thing:  there's a poll on startrek.com today (this anecdote is not actually Star Trek-related, though, HONEST, keep reading) and heck, I'll just reproduce it here, for kicks:

Poll #421031 Star Trek Poll

What would you most like to see happen in 2005?

Enterprise renewed for a 5th season
0(0.0%)
A Shatner appearance on Enterprise
0(0.0%)
A new Star Trek movie in production
2(7.7%)
A touring production of the "Spock's Brain" stage show
0(0.0%)
Contact with an alien species
3(11.5%)
The Eagles win the Super Bowl
8(30.8%)
Affordable space travel
4(15.4%)
Peace on Earth 
9(34.6%)


Man, tough poll, I want all of those things to happen.  I had to go with the Eagles, but that raises the question -- what?  How -- what?  I mean that there's mention of football at ALL (what an out of place item!) but why the Eagles?  Ca-razy.

I think I'm getting sick.  My head hurts and my eyes feel . . . hot.  You know, how they get when you have a fever or something?  Might just be the stress, though, work was stressful today.  I had to make Steve regrade, like, everything on the site.  Oops.  Sorry kids, the soil does not lie.

Man, how about this snow!  Sure looks pretty.  I'm interested to see how the Scion does.  (Man, there are commercials all the time now!  That's hot.)

Holy shit! It really does say "The Eagles win the Super Bowl." What the fucking fuck? I thought you were joking.

Son, neither the Eagles nor Star Trek are anything to joke about!!!

See, I have to believe that "contact with an alien species" would solve all the rest of those issues. Like, they could provide us with affordable space travel, give the Eagles some kind of crazy-ass technology that would allow them to win the Super Bowl, and force Shatner to appear on Enterprise by training laser cannons on his family.

Can I change my answer?
I hadn't thought of that. Way to think outside the box.

I'm sorry to sound like a damned dirty hippy, but Peace on Earth is what I would most like to see, and I was just answering truthfully.

Yeah yeah yeah, me too. I'm sort of annoyed that they made that a choice, because then it makes you feel like a dick for not choosing it. But it's not a very interesting answer! So I didn't pick it.

It's also the most unrealistic choice on there. I'll bet you five bucks that we do not achieve world peace in 2005.

I'll take that bet!

my second choice would definitely be the affordable space travel thing, though. I'm saving up for the $190k pricetag on even a stratosphere run.

Wait, wait wait- you really want to see Shatner show up on Enterprise?

Yeah sure, why not? I was skeptical about Spiner, but he turned out to be great. As long as they have him play a obnoxious, arrogant admiral, it'll be fantastic!
