Buy stock in Google. No, seriously. And if you don't buy stock in Google, buy stock in Apple. If you would like a long explanation of why, you let me know. I let my father know this about a week and a half ago. Now I'm telling the whole world - NOT as a financial advisor...that I think Google and Apple stock hasn't even started growing yet. With Goog + (which I think will eventually - with its nifty privacy features - IF they fix some of the shortcomings - put FB out of business), Androids and several other platforms on the rise...not to mention the Goog+ for business in the works - the performance results of Google in the last quarter won't have shit on the next few. Apple is opening a store every 50 hours for a couple of months. While I firmly believe that the Evo would kick the I-Phone's ass like a pissed off Klingon trying to relieve his captain of duty...well fuck. The I-Phone, the I-Pad...the endless droning of a million mac-advocates that are excited to stamp another brand on their ass to improve their status in society. If I had any money whatsoever, I would be investing it in Google and Apple. Again, I have NO SCHOOLING in financial realms. I am taking an educated guess. So I rescind my previous statement telling you to buy Apple or Google stock. Instead, talk to your financial advisor about it...
So, I'm not going to rant anymore about Zaffis right now.
I'm going to squeal that Star Trek TNG is on Netflix. I have seemingly lost having a life trying to watch it all the way through. I can't believe how much of this I missed; I remember really LOVING this show when I was a kid, and I missed SO MUCH of it. I purchased Seasons 1-3 on DVD a few years ago, but as they became a rarer find, I never managed to get Season 4. Really, the whole pursuit is in order to be able to watch the whole of DS9 and Voyager. I only saw the first season of Voyager (lack of funds and lack of interest after TNG died and I felt betrayed) - and I had honestly tried DS9 when I was young, but frankly, I only stuck it out for a year and a half and the show still sucked at that point.
BTW, I honestly wish there were more episodes with Lore.
I remember idealizing Troi when I was a kid. OMG did I want to be like her. It's funny, the way people describe her character as a "damsel in distress" and "eye candy." I can see that clearly this is what her character was meant to be. But she represented a lot more to me. She represented that I could still be a very feminine woman - and succeed. I was what, 11? Hrm. Let me think. 1993...No. I was 10 when it ended. (Holy crap on a cracker.) At the time I wanted to be a fighter pilot. Or an astronaut. And here was a woman who KICKED ASS at her career (regardless of the vamped up sex appeal and rampant ditziness), was still insanely beautiful, but NEVER put her lovelife before her career. Ok...except that one time, but it was NOT her fault. (*insert laughter*)
Oh, I've started rambling again. A much more ordered post coming tomorrow.
