HAPPY FIRST CONTACT DAY

In 50 years we will finally be able to look up with a new vision, one not based in the accumulation of personal wealth, but one in which we are part of something larger!

I'm gonna pop in my First Contact Blue Ray.

And happy First Contact Day to you, too, Monster! I'm coincidentally spending the day with a Trekkie friend (one of my few Trekkie friends) from out of town.

Do you have any idea how disappointed we'll be when the date rolls around and the Vulcans DON'T land?!

I'll have to make a special toast tonight at dinner.
