Finally life is beginning to get back to normal after a hectic couple of weeks. The Chair Jos Willems last week was a success, as well as the CONGA Award. I'll be devoting one or more posts to the Chair Jos Willems later - right now I'm still putting the presentations online.
Not a lot of posting this week, nor the week to come. Preparations for the Chair Jos Willems/EuroBlog 2007 Conference are drawing to an end. And, as the saying goes, it's always darkest just before sunrise. I guess that's why I hardly find time for anything else but this conference nowadays.
Add to this the fact that I'm also in the organising team of the annual CONGA Award (to be held next Tuesday), and I'm sure you can see I have no time to play. What a shame...But still: worth the effort!
If you haven't registered for the Chair Jos Willems yet, you can still do so on the site. The list of participants is growing fast. So if you're into social media and you can find the time on 15, 16 and/or 17 March, don't hesitate!
It's not because my (well, our) wedding announcement had a Star Trek touch, or because I own an English-Klingon dictionary as well as a USS Enterprise telephone, or because I went to a Star Trek convention in Düsseldorf once, that you can call me a Trekkie.
Let's just say I used to be a big fan, especially of TOS and TNG *. And of course, I have seen all the films. So, just a small expression of happiness: YES!!!Star Trek XI is on its way. According to the official info, it will be a prequel revolving around the characters of Kirk and Spock. Excellent! Christmas 2008 in US cinemas? Early 2009 in Europe... I think I'll manage to wait that long. Live long and prosper!
* The Original Series (Kirk, Spock, Bones, Scotty, Uhura, Chekov, Sulu and all the rest) and The Next Generation (Picard, Counsellor Troy, Riker, Data, LaForge, Worf, Dr Crusher, etcetera). But, as a one-time fan, you knew that, of course. Or do you have the chutzpah to tell me you never used to watch Star Trek? In that case: shame on you! ;-)
