The Picard Maneuver (the jacket, not the tactical move)

My honey gave me the entire Star Trek movie series, from the woefully lame Star Trek: The Motion Picture to Nemesis, which was only marginally better because it actually had a plot. In between there were some really good ones, but the thing that I really enjoyed was all the commentary and special features. I fell in love with Riker all over again, and Shatner is as bombastic as ever. Michael Okuda is my new favorite person because he did some brilliant work creating a pop-up video-like commentary of the movies. He's a funny guy.

Anyway, I give the special features a bunch of thumbs up. It was very entertaining. Even more entertaining was watching Christy's look of disgust as she'd walk into the room to see what I had on, only to discover it was yet another Trek. Bahahaha. In fact, I just ran her out of the office by inviting her to watch one with me. Who knew privacy was so easily attainable?

So, all things Trek fresh on my mind, I had one of those post-modern moments of realization in class today, when my suit jacket kept riding up, and I kept snapping it down. At one point I realized I was doing the Picard Maneuver.

What a nerd.

the nerdiest thing about this is that NO NONE else wil have any idea what you're talking about.

in the case that one of you loyal fans knows what she IS talking about, refrain from letting her find out. i am making a point here.
