Back when I was teaching at a school which will not be named and which had a lot of problems with me and the fact that I was not cookie-cutter to their specifications, I was officially reprimanded by the administration for looking too much like Mr. Spock on the very day I was wearing this awesome shirt emblazoned with the words “Trek yourself before you wreck yourself”. According to them, I had no dignity and was ‘distracting’ the students.
It was one of my life’s proudest moments.
Another proud moment was when I was driving home from comic con and singing along with my ipod AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS and realised as I was singing Weird Al’s “You’re Pitiful” line “Your home-made Star Trek uniform really ain’t impressing me” that I WAS IN FACT WEARING A HOME MADE STAR TREK UNIFORM AND I LAUGHED SO HARD IN MY GLORIOUS SHAME.
SPOCK: I am Spock.
TRELANE: Surely not an officer. He isn’t quite human, is he?
SPOCK: My father is from the planet Vulcan.
TRELANE: And are its natives predatory?
SPOCK: Not generally. But there have been exceptions.
