don't like

Another summer and another toe down

It's been that long since I posted? Over three weeks? I suppose I just haven't had that much to tell people.

There are three official days of summer left* and we've hardly had one. I'd say maybe two weeks of decent summery weather over the last three months? And I chose this year to make a sky scarf; here's far too much grey and white in mine. Oh well at least I'm not limp and sweltering like I was last summer and I can sleep at night. March and April are often very nice though so I'm holding out hopes for that and maybe a few days off.

* [Edit] I think we regard summer as Dec-Feb (and other seasons as three-month blocks) because school holidays force people with kids to take their summer break between Christmas and the end of January. Me, I go for February or March to avoid those people and get better weather.

In other news I whacked my foot against one of the bed's legs on Friday morning and the agony almost floored me. I assumed I'd bashed my broken toe--but actually it's the one next to it. The broken one's bruises have almost faded now but its neighbour is deep purple. I think it's just a sprain though because it only hurt for a day or two.

Why yes, I'm a klutz, but I also have long prehensile toes which are excellent at picking things up but do get in the way sometimes. :-P

Old and new Star Trek

Two posts in one day!

I don't much like the new LJ popular entries feature but a certain actor's name did leap out at me yesterday.
First images from the set of Star Trek 2. May contain Benedict Cumberbatch, yay! (When does that guy find the time for all the work he does?)

Then someone posted some old ads promoting the original series before it screened. "Where it goes, no program has ever gone before."
