Sitting in the theater last night before the Star Trek movie (ZOMG!!!! GO SEE IT!!! NOW!!!)...
Ty: Do you think Star Trek fans are as excited about this movie as Star Wars fans were before Phantom Menace came out?
Me: But you're a Star Trek and Star Wars fan. Aren't you as excited?
Ty: Yeah, but Star Wars fans are so much more avid in their love of their movies. More so, I think, than Star Trek fans.
Me: But, what you're saying is that Star Wars fans are better than Star Trek fans. And that's just elitist.
Ty: No. But Star Wars fans are on a different plane than Star Trek fans.
Me: What about LOTR fans?
Ty: Well, that's a completely different subject. They're on a completely different plateau than sci-fi people. Kind of like you Dune geeks.
Me: HEY! HEY! Don't go there! Don't mesh me and my kind in with that LOTR ilk!
Ty: Well, you know what I mean. You guys are just different.
Me: You know, Dave turned his Little Dave graphic into Paul Muad'Dib and I had a total geek out on his blog the other day. I want a Little Heather Fremen!
Ty: Would you be that chick...
Me: NO! I so wouldn't be Chani. I'd be a Bene Gesserit. Reverend Mother. Definitely.
Ty: Would you have to be a concubine?
Me: Probably. Almost all Bene Gesserits were part of the Kwisatz Haderach breeding program. So, I most likely would have to go off to some remote planet and shag some obscure member of the Landsraad.
Me: But I am infertile, so I would probably not be a breeding Bene Gesserit. But then again, Reverend Mothers could control their bodies with a thought, so I could cure my own PCOS! Bonus!
Me: Oh my God. I'm such a geek.
Ty: Yes. Yes you are.
