Well, today is the day for the much hyped new Star Trek movie. I have plans to go tomorrow and based on the reviews from this morning it sounds like it will be amazing. Actually, I don't care much what happens today - I had the most amazing massage last night and I still feel like major jello. All is good in the world.
I did catch part of Star Trek II TWOK the other day. What is sad is that I know most of those lines by heart and can speak them with the characters. I am pretty sure I saw that movie on July 10th, 1982 and I was forever enthralled wtih Star Trek after that. Two stations, Channel 5 out of Washington and Channel 10 in Columbia showed Star Trek that summer, one came on at 5 and the other came on at 5:30, so I would watch the full one at 5 and then at 6 would switch channels to see the end of the second one. It was great. That fall, Channel 5 showed Star Trek at 8 pm most nights unless there was a basketball game on. I ended up watching a couple episodes of MASH each night as that was shown before Star Trek at 8. It did not take much to make me happy!
