That’s SIR Patrick Stewart to you, pal.

You know how I know 2010’s going to be a good year?  Because things like this keep making their way into my inbox this week.  And it’s not just that they are good things that happened and therefore the year is starting off good.   It’s that they are good things that happened that made the people who read them think, “Hey, you know who’d love to hear about this?  MEG.”  And then they’re sending them to me.  To make my day better.   To make MY day better.  Get out of town.  That’s a gift.  You’re all gifts.  I don’t deserve you, but I will keep trying to.

Oh, and by the way, the good thing I’m talking about this morning?  Ex-Boyfriend of the Week Patrick Stewart:  KNIGHTED.  Uh huh.  You read that right.  Queen Mum was all, “Guess what, Captain Picard, that time you went all Warp Nine on that Romulan’s ass?  That was brilliant.  You’re in like Flynn, Sir.  Keep up the good work.  And pass me some of that Earl Grey, hot.  I’ve got a head full of quandary and a mighty, mighty, mighty thirst.”

    YAY, YAY, YAY! Patrick Stewart is WONDERFUL!

    We just watched his “Christmas Carol” again this year – he is the BEST Scrooge!

    We also saw him in a little movie called “Safe House.” The movie was okay, but HIS performance, as a retired spy dealing with the beginnings of Alzheimer’s, was really amazing!

    I’ve seen Safe House and totally agree with your assessment. I thought he was great, even though the movie itself was kind of predictable. Amazing actor and a good all-around guy. Congratulations, Sir Cap’n!

    Did you hear they filmed the 2008 RSC production of “Hamlet” in which he played Claudius and it will be making its way to PBS sometime this year? I am ecstatic about that.
