Stardate: Christmas 2010

1 Dec

Anyone who’s familiar with this blog knows about my supreme and holy love for the Picard. In fact, according to Talladega Nights, everyone gets to choose their own version of the form Jesus takes, and my own personal Jesus is of the Sweet Baby Picard Jesus variety. Using the power of The Future (and some morphing software) I have created a mock-up of what the Sweet Baby Picard Jesus might look like. Behold his greatness!

So imagine my delight when I received this in the mail from my twitter pal Kristin:

An Old School Captain Picard ornament from Stardate: 1995.

No really, it says so on the box:

It also gives some other stats, such as his place of birth and his trademark saying. Which, HELLO HALLMARK, you already know those already if you’re in the market for a Picard ornament. It’s not as if some newb is going to come across this ornament while shopping for a Mother’s Day card, see the Picard’s famous words on the back and think, “I like this guy’s style! Hell, I’ve never had any desire to watch this show before, but this Hallmark Keepsake Ornament has converted me.”

In a decade or so this masterpiece is going to qualify as vintage.

My ornament fits right in on the D&D shelf. Look at how regal he is! How dashing! How handsome!

The Picard plate, given to me by my friend Brandon, looks on with approval. As do some dragons and bottles of Mt Dew.

I’m kind of in love with it. Don’t tell my husband.

Thank you Kristin. My nerd empire is complete.
