Ode to Spot

Felis Cattus, is your taxonomic nomenclature,
an endothermic quadruped carnivorous by nature?
Your visual, olfactory and auditory senses
contribute to your hunting skills, and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,
a singular development of cat communications
that obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
for a rhythmic stroking of your fur, to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;
you would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aide in locomotion,
it often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

O Spot, the complex levels of behaviour you display
connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.


Data, "Schisms"

Hah!

I remember that episode! I was a hardcore ST:TNG geek as a kid. My mom would get me to do my chores by threatening to keep me from seeing Star Trek, even.

My dad used to watch it every Thursday night, so I would too, even though I had no idea what they were talking about.

Makes me sad that all the newer shows aren't nearly as good as TNG.

When I was four, I put one of my mom's headbands over my eyes, and pretended I was Geordi.

When I was 8 or 9, I had the hugest crush on Wesley Crusher. I found a sticker with a picture of him on it and I stuck it in one of the pages of my diary, and one day I showed it to the neighbor girl, who decided she had a crush on him too. And I was SO mad at her because I found him first and he was mine.

Ha! I love that so much :D I'm still such a huge TNG geek... though, not nearly as big as I was as a teen. My crush was always on Riker though... my friend Sarah wanted Wesley.

I loved TNG when it was on! I don't watch it much anymore, especially since I don't know when any reruns are on, but it's fun to see how dated it looks now. :)

I think I had a crush on several different characters at one time or another. Riker, Crusher, Picard, Wharf, etc...
