Hey, look, I know things are a mess. I took a hiatus from blogging and decided to switch up my design before returning. Please be patient, because if you can wait out the mess it means REGULAR POSTING WILL RETURN SOON! :D

Damn it, Jim! I Just Want to See Your Movie!

Adam gets to see a lot of movies for work. He works with disabled individuals and they do all sorts of things; grocery shopping, job hunting, bowling, and, yes, movies.

So he sees a lot of things before I do. It works out quite well. I don’t have to see movies I’m not interested in but that he wants to see. And when I do go to the theatre he can take baby-duty {i.e. diaper changes and soothing fusses} and he isn’t missing anything he’s not already seen.

Now, we’re Star Trek fans. We don’t own our own Federation Uniforms, or Tribbles, or anything {yet}. But we do love it. We were pretty stoked for the new movie. Not surprisingly, Adam saw it first. It took a while before I was ready to try venturing to the theatre with Lucy to see it. But finally the time came that I was ready to give it a go. We made plans to see it the very next day.

And then the movie theatre switched out the shows and it was no longer playing.

We were both very, very bummed. It was going to be my first time seeing a movie since Lucy had been born. And Adam had been dying for me to see it so he could actually talk about it with me without giving anything away.

Then we had to head to a different city for immigration stuff. And that city happened to have a dollar theatre,* a dollar theatre still playing Star Trek. So we made plans to see it while we were there.

And then the movie theatre switched out the shows and it was no longer playing.

Then, on our flight to Toronto, they had the little TV things built into the seats that had TV shows and movies. One of the movies? Yup, you guessed it. Star Trek. So we did our best to watch it while keeping Lucy happy.

And then the screen froze in the middle of the movie.

We did manage to finally see it in a dollar theatre in Ohio. Lucy even slept or cuddled quietly the whole time!

So, what did I think?



The new Kirk is totally hot a very good casting choice.


*Why, why, why don’t we have a dollar theatre in this town?

Saw Star Trek on Saturday and started having regular contractions, had a baby on Monday ..... connected? Maybe?

Totally with you on the Kirk thing. ZOMG. I need to go fan myself now. ;)

I too am with you on Kirk!!!

I am so excited for 11/17/2009 when it comes out on dvd!

I agree, we need a dollar theatre. That way, if I miss something, I do not have to try and catch it in Lethbridge a the Movie Mill.

The floor of the dollar theater is too sticky, I know, I'm a spoiled brat :)

I never saw it but my husband took my mom to see it because they're both Trekkies. They had the nerve to leave me at home!

Hi, I'm stopping by from SITS! So glad that you FINALLY got to see your movie! We have a dollar theater in my town and it is wonderful! I moved here about 18 months ago and I can't believe I used to pay $9 before!! No more for this girl! ha ha. If you want to start the "We Need More Dollar Theaters" movement, I will stand behind you!
