Date Night?

Miles and I went to see "Star Trek" tonight. Kayla watched the wee lassies, with her buddy Kenzie. (she asked if she was getting paid. I reminded her about the $42 haircut I'd paid for this afternoon)

I have to say, as a fan of the original Trek.... I enjoyed this film. Spock is a central figure, and the actor paying him did a great job making the well-know character interesting. Especially the part where Uhura was his girlfriend! That was, pardon the pun, a fascinating bit of character development. It's a new reality, so all history is able to be re-told. Very cool!

I called it a date night. There were 2 men, 2 boys and me. But it was still a nice chance to get out.


  1. hey, i called it a date night too - and i just got lucie to bed and watched 2 episodes of my cheesy disney family show "greek." i relaxed, had quiet, and sat down. ; )

    glad you all enjoyed the film. heard good reviews back here, too.

  2. Hey - anytime I get to hold hands with my sweetie in a dark movie theater - that's a date!

    Oh - and Karl Urban as McCoy was brilliant. Only days afterward did I connect that he was Eomer in the LOTR flicks.
