I Wish I Had Something to Say

But I don’t. I’ve been thinking about posting for some time now, but I haven’t. All I think about is school and my Nintendo DS (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/gp/redirect NULL.html%3FASIN=B000I10PY2%26tag=blogferret-20%26lcode=xm2%26cID=2025%26ccmID=165953%26location=/o/ASIN/B000I10PY2%253FSubscriptionId=0EMV44A9A5YT1RVDGZ82), lately. I wonder if I get the DS browser if I could post to WordPress (http://www NULL.wordpress NULL.org) with it? I bet even if I could I still wouldn’t have anything to say.
Yes, I am very inane today. I made salmon teryaki tonight and it was delicious. People don’t know what they’re missing when seafood goes on sale and I’m cooking.

I have been watching ST:TNG season 1. I loved the way they handled drug addiction and society’s response to it. Episode 23, Symbiosis, involves a wealthy, sort of “yuppy” society whose only support is gained from providing another planet’s society with “medicine” to combat the “plague.” It turns out that the “plague” once really existed in the people of Planet #2, but now it doesn’t and the people remain physically and psychologically dependent on it. Picard won’t violate the Prime Directive by keeping the shipment of the drug the Enterprise becomes involved with from reaching Society #2, but he informs that society that its dependence on the pharmaceutical is no longer survival-based. He ALSO refuses to violate the Prime Directive when he won’t help to repair the vessels responsible for shipping the drug. Both Society #1 and Society #2 are going to lose a great deal, in various ways. Dr. Crusher is upset because she could have eased the withdrawal of Society #2, and all Picard did was take away their cars and force them to make their own choices. Some of People #2 will remain addicted, obviously. Others, it is assumed, will realize that they won’t die from lack of the drug and stop using it. Ah, Star Trek, you teach us such valuable lessons about ourselves.

I am sort of manic, and yet, I am enjoying myself. Is it a form of recreation to deprive oneself of sleep, or is that just my disease? Is oneself a word, really? If it isn’t, spell check doesn’t catch it.
