Hey geeks! Seems like there’s a ton of stuff to do today (like pay the rent), but I feel like I have no energy to do it. I guess I stayed up way too late last night. Anyhow, I got an email from one of the herd pointing us to her(?) blog, so I checked it out this morning and thought “yeah, I’ll give’er a moo.” Go check out Moxie Magnus: Star Trek Cosmetologist. Here’s her bio from her about page:
I was born in space on the SS Eva Gabor, a merchant class ship trading in hair and beauty products. At six years old, I was abducted by pirates and sold as a slave in the Orion markets. Ironically, I ended up in the great and ancient Orion wig factories of Verex III (Wig making was one of the few ancient Orion technologies that survived into the modern era.) To ease my pain, I threw my little self into my work. I was a natural wig-maker, a recognized child prodigy. At age 15, I won my freedom by defeating the greatest wig-maker in the Orion Syndicate. I made my way to Paris, an orphan. My wigmaking skills had preceded me and I was on my way to becoming a fashion icon and intergalactic celebrity, but I gave up that life to answer the call of fate and duty: I applied and was accepted into Starfleet Academy. I graduated in record time with a double PhD in xenocosmotology and Astrobiology. My thesis, “Zero-G Styling Technology: Captain we have Lift-off”, is still recognized as the seminal work in it’s field. I was assigned to the USS Enterprise as chief cosmetology officer under Captain James T. Kirk.
I don’t want to spoil anything, but make sure you read the blog posts. They’re pretty entertaining. Anyhow, I gotta start my work day soon, so I’m off to find some breakfast. Enjoy!
