Hello World!

'I am the very model of a modern major general
I have information vegetable, animal and mineral'

Ahh, the joys of Gilbert and Sullivan's 'Pirates of Penance'. This particular song has been stuck in my head all damn day, much to my misfortune… but has led me to write the following.


I am the very model of a Trek Today webmaster.
I rarely get to go outside- my skin is alabaster.
I write up news from information one might see as trivial,
And wonder if at times all this stuff is really drivel.

I can tell you who with, where and when Kate Mulgrew is appearing at.
And list to you Trek pets from those tribbles to 'droid Data's cat.
From Voyager to TOS my knowledge is phenomenal,
But on those silly trivia tests my score is microcosmical.

(Chorus x3: But on those silly trivia tests her score is microcosmical.)

I know all there is to know about the movie Star Trek X,
And quote to you entire scripts when I don't even have the text.
In short, excluding an occasional internet disaster,
I am the very model of a Trek Today webmaster.

(Chorus: In short, excluding an occasional internet disaster,
She is the very model of a Trek Today webmaster.)

My dedication to this site is such it should astound you,
And if ever you e-mail me, I may just get around to
Replying once the other junk is out the way,
And that includes the other stuff I really should have knocked off yesterday.

My writing style, alas, I feel is getting quite repetitive,
And other times I feel as though a need a dose of sedative.
Either that or psychiatric help, though the bills would be quite staggering,
Still, then I couldn't get away with co-editor Christian badgering.

(Chorus x3: Still, then she couldn't get away with co-editor Christian badgering.)

I visit every trek site know from STC to Voy Delights,
And every day my knowledge grows to even more astounding heights,
And after several months of trying, I can even view them faster,
Yes I am the very model of a Trek Today webmaster!
