I must admit, as much as I adored both options presented in last week’s “You Choose It, We Write It” — and would have and will happily write both — I was especially eager to write one in particular. So thank you to all of you who voted, especially the 55 percent who voted for the winner, “9 Things Spock Would Say About Dating.” I am, after all, a bit of a Trekkie and was sure that the Content Idea Generator was on to something with this idea. And boy, was I right. Spock is officially my dating guru. Click on to read some of his completely logical pearls of relationship wisdom, and may your dating life live long and prosper.
It’s time for another round of “You Choose It, We Write It,” in which we pit two ingenious topics from the Content Idea Generator against each other and let readers choose which story they want to see on The Frisky. This week, we’re heading in a slightly nerdier direction — let me know what you want me to write by voting below!

Ever wanted to run your hands all over Captain Kirk? Well, you’re not the only perverted geek. Artist Devorah Sperber has strung along Spock, McCoy, Kirk, Sulu, and even Uhura. She nailed them all by being crafty and recreated scenes from a vintage Star Trek episode in bead and spool curtains. The pieces are as colorful as the late sixties and as awesome as the space explorer hunks themselves. Sperber, inspired by reruns on Spike TV, has elevated fan art to high art. Perhaps, our Amelia can get her Next Gen “I heart Wesley Crusher” notebook doodles in a gallery too? [Wired and Caren Golden Fine Art]
