Today is Star Trek Movie Day!

Mr. Spock (in reruns) was one of my earliest crushes, and the show one of my favorites for many years. Isn’t he yummy? You really need to hear his speaking voice to get the full effect.

I might not get quite the same buzz from the new Star Trek movie, but nostalgia moves me to go and see it anyway. If I don’t like it, I can take the traditional Trekker approach and complain about it bitterly afterwards.

And who knows, maybe I will like the new movie in a whole new way. It’s definitely got some actors I enjoy watching. Sadly, though, I can’t see it tonight–my choir has a dress rehearsal for our Saturday performance. But soon. Soon I shall see it! Soon it shall be mine!

It is illogical to think Friday should be happier than any other day of the week.

    Nice Spock pic! I went to see it and, trust me, I’m a die-hard Trekkie from the Old School and I loved it. :)

    Saw it yesterday–it was really fun. Wanted more Simon Pegg, though. And Karl Urban.
