What did you think of Star Trek?

Don’t you get called this word at least twice a week?

Only if there are no Federal holidays. ;-)

Isn’t “Plan B” a birth control? We just can’t escape the topic.

I enjoyed it very much-in my late teens, Star Trek was my favorite TV series-growing up in the military, guys like Captain Kirk were the ultimate heroes, and attractive as “real men”, as well.

I also liked the dry humor and ironic twists of the original series, as well as the way the main characters flipped the bird to the powers-that-be whenever they felt it was justified. Patrick Stewart’s Capt. Picard didn’t have enough of that qualitity, but it was re-captured in the movie by that actor, Chris Pine as Kirk, as well as the other main characters, and I laughed my ass off at that. I liked the hint of arrogance, the f’you attitude, and the reckless heroism, like the old series.

The “Road Island” screw up is just another examp[le of someone who never learned proper English-or maybe even geography?-it is almost enough to make me want to run with scissors...

I like going to the movies during the weekdays, only $4.50, and weeknights early in the week are only $6.25. With those awesome powered recliners, I am in heaven. It is about the only thing my son and I do together that is relaxing. He can be tough to love.

When my daughter was a kid at home, she and I used to go to the weekday movies in the summertime-I remember those times fondly.

Well, my son is hardly a boy, in fact, I should have grandchildren from him, but NO. I suffer as a grandma wanna-bee.
