By the Light of the Moon
Well I was looking through some of the Freshly Pressed writing prompts and came across the Metamorphase one. That one sounds like fun. So look for that one here sometime today.

It’s Cheetos Time!
That’s right dear Readers it’s Cheetos time. Why you might ask? Because I am literally starving. I have been looking around on wordpress.com/ for the last several hours to find a new dark theme that I like only to find that they don’t have enough description to tell me what I want to know. Simple things like what color is the dark background? what color is the text on the default pages? Can I enlarge the font size? That kind of thing. So,yes, it’s time for Cheetos before I lose my mind and throw my laptop across the room.
I really wish that these devlopers would give a shit about the “Blind” community. Not all of us can see the damned screen guys and girls. Come on and give us a little help for Goddess’s sake. Grumbles.
I am sure I am just having a fit here and this won’t be attended to anytime soon. Sighs. But I wish it would be. All of these creative people out there and none of them have a clue how hard it is to navigate a website with loads of links and a screen reader. And none of them bother to try and see if they could navigate with any of the screen readers out there. That’s not to mention the whole text to speech thing. For us totally blind users,myself, and others it is a total pain in the ass to navigate so many links to find the content we are looking for. So devlopers and web designers get off your backsides and put up some useful content for the sight impaired or the totally blind users of wordpress.com/ will you?

Star Trek Into Darkness Review
Well we just finished watching Star Trek Into Darkness. I have to say at this point that I am a “canon” Star Trek fan. By that I mean that while I enjoyed the 2009 movie and this new one as well I personally feel that the “old school” Star Trek from the 60s and all the way through Star Trek The Next Generation are my two favorites.
The acting in this movie was good although the main character who plays Jim Kirk tends to overact his part. I liked the by play between Spok and Uhura was a lot of fun to listen to. In my opinion they messed up the original Star Trek :Wrath of Khan ending. But I can understand why they did so. I really like the guy that plays young Spok and as usual Lenoard Nimoy was a joy to see onscreen once more. I think he gets better as he gets older. But I can go on about my Nimoy obession in a later post. Wicked smile.
They did a lot of fun stuff and special effects. And we saw it in I-Max. I totally love I-Max. When I can afford it I am so going to get an 3-D T.V. The sound effects were a blast as usual. And there were maybe half a dozen people in the whole theater.
As I said before good movie. The 2009 and 2013 movie are good “alternate timeline” movies. I will be buying this one when it comes out on DVD. And for those of you that have Blue Ray don’t nag at me because I don’t. Smiles. If you go to see Into Darkness just remember what I have mentioned above. If you don’t mind the “canon” Star Trek and the movies that they made with the orginal cast and the Next Generation casts to be totally toppled and replaced then go and see this movie. Having seen Into Darkness I am now seriously considering doing some adio files of “fan fiction” set in the Star Trek universe. Drop mea line and let me know what you all think of the new movie Star Trek Into Darkness. No flames please.
“Give me chocolate and I will kill you last.”
Hello loyal Readers. I am still working on coming up with some audio files for you all to listen to. Smiles. In other news: I am taking my husband to see the new Star Trek movie Enter Darkness tomorrow. We are both big Star Trek fans so watching it in 3-D IMAX will be lots of fun. He is hooked on the IMAX experience and so am I. And let’s face it why go and see a Star Trek movie in a regular theater when for a few dollars more you can see it in 3-D? Now of course I can’t see it at all at this stage but what the hell. Smiles. I go for the sound effects and the storyline. And my husband will explain what is going on if I get lost in the movie. He is getting rather good at that after all of these years. We have been together for almost 14 years. And yes, ladies, before you ask he can see quite well and can drive. Anyhow I just wanted to let you all know what we were up to tomorrow I will probably post a small review of it when we get back from watching it.
