I really am alive
Though the last two weeks it felt like I was just barely alive. I have the full blown bronchitis which has me feel like I'm hacking up a lung. I didn't touch my needle for a least a week. I finally picked it up again this past Wednesday. No pictures right now, maybe later. We did go see Star Trek - TWICE! Yes, it is that good. Now, keep in mind that when the original series debuted I was about 8 years old, firmly in place in front of the TV with my brother and sister. We never missed an episode the whole three years it was on. I have watched every incarnation of Trek. I grew up with the freakin' franchise. I am a SciFi geek. Really, you should see my house. I have phasers and tricorders, aliens, all sorts of paraphernalia around the house. So as someone who sees herself as a Trekker (not Trekkie, that's just insulting) I can say that I loved this movie. Zachary Quinto is perfect as Spock and Chris Pine is fabulous as Kirk. The one who really steals the show for me is Karl Urban as McCoy. OMG, he was so great and funny. I've seen him in a lot of movies and he was so different from any other role I've seen him do. So, if you've been on the fence about this movie, go see it. I think you'll be surprised.
