As an addendum to my already kilometric post taming the wild child, here's a quote from Star Trek Deep Space Nine:
"What are you telling me, my baby's just... sad?"
"Perhaps he's become prematurely aware of life's existential isolation."
"You're sure it's not a rash?"
"Look at the bright side: he'll probably be a great poet."

DS9 / "Business as Usual"
Haha! This is funny to me and maybe 10 other people on the planet. But oblige me since the new Star Trek movie is out and director JJ Abrams totally rocked it. Just one little example: he "reveals" to us that the young James Tiberius Kirk once took the car without his mom's permission and drove off blasting the Beastie Boys' Sabotage. But of course this makes total sense to me in so many levels! Anyway....
Saw the movie last weekend as part of my mother's day extravaganza which included: artwork lovingly made by Chicha and Baby Bear, from Pappy (the husband) something "practical" from the Mac store, plus date night involving thin crust pizza and Star Trek on the big screen. Happy Mother's day yeah!
My weekend wish for everyone: "live long and prosper"... and get yourselves to MOA to see this on IMAX... or any theatre near you. Pappy and I are trekkers, yes. But I think even non-geeks should enjoy. It pays respect to Gene Roddenberry, but it's entertaining enough for short attention spans. Really.
Oh and... thank you to Baby Bear and Chichas' Teacher Jojie who brought above DS9 qoute to light. They have the coolest teachers, I love it.
