FArFri: Crossover Trek by Mike Ling

I love crossover fan art!  A several years ago I created a SpongeTrek crossover and this week I found some hilarious crossover art by artist Mike Ling (zenzmurfy) on DeviantArt.  The combination of pop culture elements here are nothing short of brilliant!   Be sure you’re not drinking anything while looking at these — you may do a spit-take!

Dream of Nimoy on Broadway

I had another funny dream this morning — I was reading a Daily News tabloid that had a big headline proclaiming “THAT’S NOT SPOCK!” and a photo of Nimoy in a old bathrobe on stage in an angry stance.  The article read “Cursin’ Grumpy Grandpa rules the Broadway Stage!”  It proceeded to explain that Nimoy’s latest venture was playing a Grouchy, intolerant, Archie Bunker-like character in a new musical!  There were photos of him laughing and mingling with the cast, and comments that “He really enjoys this, it’s so out of character for him!”  And I could hear someone say that he’d be performing in it BOTH of the theaters named after him on NYC and LA! (In reality there’s only the one in NYC).

As I looked at the ad, I thought “Wait, he’ s in a play?  I’d love to see this! Then I thought “But wait…” and I quickly scanned for the date;  it was dated 2012.  I had missed it.

I wonder what brought this on?  I had been reading a Daily News in the cafe at Wegman’s yesterday, and its tabloid style was clearly all over the paper in the dream.  I’ve also been thinking of going to NYC lately, and Nimoy occasionally pops up in my dreams.   Maybe somewhere in my brain The Lazy Song was playing too, and that would explain the bathrobe!

Celeste Update: Successful Surgery!

11701012_10207217593061943_7709059262534652884_n

Celeste today in recovery from her filter insertion. LLAP!!

We just got an update from Celeste that her surgery today went perfectly! So happy to hear this!  Here’s her summary:

I’m in recovery now following the surgery to place the IVC filter in the vena cava vein. They went into the vein via my vein in my neck. The anesthesia gave me a wonderful sleep and I woke up happy with Nazim right by me side. Docs said it went perfectly and they will go on to take it out in October.

We’re having fun with the wonderful nurses as they keep me a little while longer for observation.

I finally got to eat a sandwich and have my Orgain shake.

So one down and the big surgery is next on July 24th. We got this!!!!

Please don’t forget to contribute to Celeste’s cancer fund  for every little bit will help!  You can contribute here.

I’m so glad that this went well, and I know when this month is over and all the surgery is done, you’ll be back on the trail to full recovery!  Love and Prayers Always! -Therese

Celeste Update: Filter Surgery Tomorrow! (July 7th)

Celeset over

Dear Friends,

Celeste has just left an update about the implantation of the IVC filter to her leg vein to prevent the two clots from possibly traveling to her heart or brain. She will be having the hernia surgery later this month. Please keep Celeste in your prayers and please help to increase her cancer fund to help pay for the bills that her insurance won’t cover.   http://www.gofundme.com/kvo9xs

Every bit helps!  And our love, prayers and healing thoughts are with you, Celeste.  <3 <3

I just got word that I will be having the out patient procedure tomorrow, July 7th and this is where they will surgically implant an IVC filter in my vein to prevent the two DVTs (blood clots) from possibly migrating to my heart or lungs. I will be “out” for the procedure but will return home to rest afterwards.

I saw on line that there have been some law suits regarding this type of filter and have been assured what I am getting is safe.

This procedure is very important for me to have done because there will be a few days before my big repair surgery where I will not be able to take the blood thinning injections called Lovinox, which I now must have every day and this would be a risky time also for the clots to migrate. The injections keep this from happening.

I feel with this procedure having been done that I will be very well protected. I found an image of what the IVC filter should look something like, on line.

The repair surgery is a complicated one with 3 different surgeons involved and the date is now set for July 24th.

Nazim’s birthday is July 19th and mine is July 26th so hopefully we can celebrate them at the same time on his birthday as I won’t be able to do anything fun for quite some time after the surgery.

It pains me to remind you that we so need your help with regard to this fund and appreciate any and all donations more than words can express.

I thank you for all you have done to help me thus far and send you all my love and blessings for your perfect health.

Celeste

My Weekly Spock: Like Great Grandfather, Like Great Grandson

Leonard with great grandson Charlie Pearson in 2011. (Aww!)

I loved this photo of Mr. Nimoy (in 2011) with his  great grandson Charlie Pearson that was featured People.com when Nimoy died.  But what struck me the most was how much this little guy resembles his Great ‘Poppi’ as a child! (the eyes, the ears, the smile!) Charlie is Adam’s grandson and truly that apple didn’t fall  far from the tree! Sweet little fellow!
