Four Words


Brian and I went to see it last night, and being who we are, we decided to dress up. I went as a Trill and he was a Starfleet Commander. It was basically awesome. Unfortunately we didn't get to go opening night, so we were the only ones dressed up, but I don't think that a lot of people here in Provo are into that sort of thing anyway. We got some very interesting looks, but my favorite was the old couple who walked by us and said "Hello Commander" to Brian and then looked at my spots and were like: 'Wow, you're a Trill!" and then he said "It was a Trill to meet you." Absolutely awesome. We apparently are young Trekkies, and they are old ones. It was funny though, because Brian's costume was super easy to put together, and mine cost 10 bucks at DI. We thought that it was hilarious, because any time that you see Star Trek characters dressed in casual clothes, they look like they fell into a rummage sale bin and came out dressed that way. Anyway, the movie was great, Spock was AWESOME (I absolutely love Sylar, and he was AMAZING in this role) Kirk was perfect, cocky enough that he was, well, Kirk, and intelligent enough that you really end up rooting for him. I'm definitely interested to see if they end up completely remaking the Star Trek universe now that they have created the alternate, but I'm not really sure if I want them to. It's a little scary to think about starting over. Anyway, I am really in the mood for some ice cream and The Next Generation, so I'm going to go drool over....that is watch me some Picard and Riker.
