Can you guess???

Can you guess what we did last night?

DH, Me and Brother Kenny went to see Star Trek. Hubby provided the shirts (vintage, circa 1992) and Kenny and I provided the geekieness. While both the Hubs and Kenny are rockers, Hubs has a bit of trepidation when it comes to embracing his geek side. Not so Kenny, he lead us in Spock salutations and Vulcan salutes.

It was fun acting silly and wearing shirts to the movie, but the real fun began as soon as the movie started. Kenny has already seen the movie and said it was great and worthy of seeing again. I agree completely. It is a prequel and introduces you to the crew of the Starship Enterprise as youngsters. If you aren't familiar with the original television show you may not get some of the references, but the story line is great and the special effects are the best I've seen in a while. The music was fantastic and it's definitely a movie to see more than once.

Well, I'm off to the studio to see what fun I can have. While at Michael's, I purchased a jump ring maker and some memory glass slides, so I see jewelry in my future. Wish me luck and be sure to let me know if you were a Trekie. Inquiring minds want to know!

I watched the show as a kid but I wasn't a big fan. You guys look great with your t's. Glad you had a great time. Can't wait to see what you make with the memory slides. Are you going to solder them together? I saw the jump ring maker yesterday and thought how cool that was. Let us know how it goes.

not a trekie, but I do want to see the movie. I remember my dad watched it all the time and I definitely wasnt a fan. I like it ok now, but I have heard from several people that the movie was really good!
have a sweet weekend!

I was a Trekkie of sorts, that is, I watched it every time it was on AND reruns but never got obsessed. I will wait for the DVD. Love the shirts.

What fun! I was a Trekkie before there was a name for it, I guess. I had to watch every episode way back when, and I had the biggest crush on Captain Kirk! Do you remember a show called "Time Tunnel" which I think was on just after Star Trek for a short time. It starred James Darren, another crush of mine.
