Successfully stitched the Starfleet insignia patch onto my new University backpack. Stabbed self several times.
Instantly being drawn to anyone wearing red plaid shirts, because of the Star Trek TOS episode ‘The City on the Edge of Forever’.
Yes, the one where James Kirk is ridiculously cute.
Just look at him, though.
I can’t help it.
Got my exam results today, and I am officially going to Strathclyde University!! So excited that I want to express it on all forms of social media, even though this tumblr is and should be dedicated to Star Trek.
bUT I am going to be doing engineering. I am also Scottish. I’m going to be like Scotty from TOS.
I forgot about this, but back during Christmas Break, I put Star Trek in front of my cat to see what he would do. To my surprise, he actually did watch it. However, he only seemed mildly entertained - that is, until Scotty started talking. Then my cat actually paused the episode and stared at him. He just stared at Scotty and wouldn’t let me press play for, like, four or five minutes. After that, he watched for a while, but gradually lost interest and started dozing, only looking up when he heard Scotty’s voice.
Can someone please explain to me why my cat loves Scotty so much? Was James Doohan secretly some sort of magical cat whisperer? What is this?
