The Other Side of Happiness

People sometimes ask me why I'm almost always happy, even when the bank balance is approaching zero, there's no Kraft Dinner left in the cupboard when I get home at 5 am, or - even worse - Star Trek: Enterprise is being cancelled.

Well, d'uh!

Just thinking about my "better half" brings a smile to my face.

Here she is, above, in Flagstaff, Arizona, back in August, 2004, while we were on vacation.

For the record - Linda Wood, MA, LL.B, currently working as the Program Administrator at the Nova Scotia Film Development Corporation. My film industry colleagues are always telling me she does a "great" job - much better than me, when I held the post back in 1998 - 1999.

And they're 100% correct!

Here she is, at left, being assimilated by the Borg - or, to be more precise, the Las Vegas Hilton, at the Star Trek Experience.

17 years together, and still as happy as we were when we first met.

Not as drunk, perhaps - but just as happy!

All hail Nathaniel Hawthorne - and Ig, you still owe me for the bet!!

Hmmm. "Elizabeth" has never been assimilated by the Borg, so you've definitely got me there...

The question is not whether "Elizabeth" has ever been assimilated by the Borg, but whether you have ever been "assimilated" by "Elizabeth."
