A Letter [Aug. 26th, 2004|01:56 pm]

[mood |hungryhungry]

[An OOC Note:
As you will see, I like to work challenges into things that my muse would do every day -- as shown below, where this week's challenge is answered in the form of a letter to a friend.]

Recipent: Captain Elias Boday
Registry Number NCC-71142
Stardate 53046.4

Dear Elias,

It was so good to hear from you! Thank you for writing to me -- it brightened up my day. I'm sorry I couldn't respond to your letter sooner; I've had a lot on my hands, as you will see.

What has kept me busy in recent months? Well, since the end of the Dominion War, my specialty has become very much in demand. (No, I'm talking about counselling, Julian Bashir.) I've seen countless patients over the past few months, with everything from light depression to suicidal fantasies. And just recently I've begun training a cadet who would like to become a counsellor -- Cadet Celes Kahti, an enthusiastic Bajoran boy. (If the name sounds familiar, you're probably thinking of his sister, Ensign Celes Tal, who was lost in the Delta Quadrant several years ago with the Voyager.) So my work has been keeping me pretty busy.

And, of course, Julian and I went to Risa last month. That was a lot of fun. We ran into the ex-Grand Nagus -- that's a Ferengi monarch -- and his girlfriend, who have become permanent residents there. I saw some of Curzon and Jadzia's old friends there as well, including a woman named Arandis (away from whom I was forced to drag Dr. Bashir, due to the new craze of two-piece bathing suits on Risa).

Also, you requested that I fill in this questionnaire? (I'm not sure I see the point, but it seems like fun!)

1. Last Alcoholic Drink: Oooh -- probably that glass of spring wine that the Colonel insisted I try in Quark's last night. Would you believe that in all my nine lifetimes, I'd never had spring wine? I actually rather liked it.

2. Last Kiss: Julian, this morning as we both headed off to our respective jobs.

3. Last Good Cry: I cried for almost an hour when Nerys told me that the Destiny had been destroyed in the battle at Cardassia Prime. There were no survivors; the Jem'Hadar picked off the escape pods one by one. I lived on that ship for almost a year; I loved those people.

4. Last Book Read: Great Expectations, another of Jadzia's Dickens books.

5. Last Movie Holoprogram Seen: Julian and I visited that Spartan program last night. We lost -- as usual. He really should see a counsellor about these annihilation fantasies of his....

6. Last Cuss Word: I try not to swear; when I do, it's rather mild -- "Oh, Prophets!"

7. Last Food Eaten: Bolian apples and Terran peanut butter, something Julian said his mother always used to fix for him as a snack. It was surprisingly delicious.

8. Last Communication: Kahti called me a few moments ago to ask if the Colonel likes roses. I think the poor boy has a crush on her.

9. Last item bought: A pillowcase, from Garak. Rather mundane, I know....

10.Last Annoyance: My sonic shower broke down this morning, so I came to work smelling like Julian's socks. (Okay, it wasn't *quite* that bad....)

11.Last Disappointment: The Colonel can't come to Vic's tonight -- too many status reports. Though I think poor Kahti is more disappointed than I am.

12.Last Sleep: Last night.

Anyhow, it was good to hear from you, Elias. Drop by next time you're in the Bajoran sector. I'll treat you to a glass of spring wine and a plate of apples with peanut butter! :)

Best Gift [Jul. 19th, 2004|10:33 am]
[mood |depresseddepressed]

Oh I have so many gifts from some wonderful friends and family it would be hard to choose just one. The first one that comes to mind is the gift of love, my husband Ian Andrew Troi gave me. First it was in his bond in marriage and the love we shared then the best gift he could ever give me was my children. I know I could never find a love like his again and it pains me. I throw myself at wonderful (sometimes not so wonderful) men always looking for that special something. It keeps me from turning inward and seeing that awful emptiness his death has left in me.

What is the most unusual gift you ever received? [Jul. 18th, 2004|07:10 am]

[mood |amusedamused]
[music |The Reason -- Hoobastank]

As a bartender, I usually get gifts of spirits which has lead to a very interesting collection. But the most unusual gift I ever received was from Commander Worf, a leather bound collection of Shakespere. In the oringial Klingon.

Very nice.

Now if only I could read Klingon.

Holidays [Jul. 17th, 2004|07:42 pm]
[mood |dark]
[music |libera me - elliot goldenthal]

We do celebrate our own holidays usually they are related to victories of the past or rememberance of those who have fallen. But with the Dominion's capitualation on Cardassia I think that at some point there will be a holiday dedicated to the freedom of our people and a memorial to those who died trying to free her. But I think right now we are all too busy trying to heal from our captivity to really think that far ahead.

Holidays [Jul. 5th, 2004|04:46 pm]
[mood |nostalgicnostalgic]
[music |Here with out you -- 3 Doors Down]

That's the one thing I miss most being away from home, holidays. Fourth of July was always a favorite, we'd usually spend the day at the beach, swimming, playing touch football or volley ball. Firing up the grill to cook Burgers, and hot dogs, maybe some catfish or fresh corn. Then later just after darkness falls, lying on a blanket with someone and watching the fireworks light up the sky.

Next to Christmas, it's my favorite holiday.
