Have you ever had one of those moments where you found yourself questing the existence of God or a higher power? Take January 27th 1991 for example, on that very day I was 99.9 percent positive that god did not exist. I was sitting in Kim Jong Ramone's living room as I watched Scott Norwood's field goal attempt go wide right. Still, to this day I can't watch the replay.
From that moment on up until two days ago there was never a question in my mind, god simply didn't exist. Nothing catastrophic happened in my life on Tuesday that opened my eyes and my heart to God. It's real simple, I was reading the comments on Steve Novak's blog on Tuesday and he informed me that Star Trek the animated series was being released on DVD at the end of this month. This month. Next week!
You have no idea how long I have waited for this moment! 22 episodes of Star Trek that I don't remember except for maybe one or two. After reading that comment on Novak's blog I felt a calm come over me that I've never known. For the first time in my life I was completely at peace with myself and the universe. As a matter of fact I almost came on myself.
Now that I'm sure there is a god, I don't have to waste any more time pondering that question. I've got bigger issues. Do I run out and buy Star Trek the Animated series on DVD Tuesday, or do I completely restructure my Christmas list that was completed in July, throwing my entire life in to a tail spin? I have no idea what the fuck I'm going to do. Help!
I could pray to God I suppose and ask him for guidance, but I don't want to burden him right now. He's got enough to do with Star Trek 11 coming out in 2008 and all. He's got to pull off the impossible, have someone other than William Shatner play the part of Captain Kirk... Nope, I'm not going to bother God right now.
This is way to much to think about. It's a good thing that TV Land is going to be playing a ton of Star Trek episodes this weekend. It will give me some time to clear my head and gain some perspective. Thank God for TV Land.
