I hate birthdays, I hate everything, and I hate blahhh *smashes fist.

However, years ago I read a story from someone where who made things seem different in perspective, and as part of transmitting what we are leaving behind here, I never forget what was written about someone I'll never know since it falls so close to my own birthday, allow me to share on his behalf:


Quote:
I really like Star Trek, and I have all my life. When I was growing up, I would ditch my friends and bike home to catch reruns of Next Generation on Fox. I would sneak my parents' 5" portable TV out of their closet and watch reruns of TNG at 11pm during the summer (when I was supposed to be in bed). I would feign illness to stay at home and sit in front of the TV, adjusting the rabbit ears so I could just barely watch an episode of DS9 in the afternoon being broadcast from hundreds of miles away. I would stay up on weekends and watch my mom's widower's old recorded episodes of TOS from the 70's on VHS. I would even pout when I had to go to bed at 8pm for school the next day, right when a new episode of Voyager was airing on UPN. I really liked Star Trek when I was growing up. But I've always wondered how I got to be that way. My parents are mildly interested in it, as are one of my sisters and brothers, but not to the extent that I am.

Not long ago, I came to a pretty heavy realization of myself. A long time ago (in a world far, far away), I actually had another brother. He hasn't been a part of my life since I was six years old, but I think his effect on me was profound. As it turns out, he really liked Star Trek too. He built models (Vor'cha cruisers, Constitution-class Enterprise) and he watched it all the time. He collected little Star Trek Micro-Machines and toys, too. I think that, in a way, I'm carrying on his love for it. I've picked up where he left off, and I'm grateful for it! Star Trek is an important part of my childhood and my life. So here's to you, Brother!

Ditto, although I'm late a day.

Also, I guess we might as well add April 6 as the official "spawn of Moses" birthday.
