Do I look tired? Sleepy? It's been a busy couple of days!
Saturday's main event was -- of course! -- the BlogMeet:
After awhile, The Jack arrived, too:
You see, we visited the Broad Ripple Art Fair in the morning: a nice bike ride, a lot of walking, and whole lot of art:
After the BlogMeet, we went to the new Star Trek movie. What can I say? The usual heavy-handed story-telling, Jim Kirk chews up the scenery, Spock is quizzically skeptic, Bones is a curmudgeon, Scotty pulls a very big rabbit out of a very small hat, evil is (after much struggle) vanquished and the good guys win! Some nice nods to earlier films, wonderful sets, terrible physics: like James Bond films, you know what's going to be inside when you buy it and the fun is seeing how they do it. I liked all of it except for the nazified StarFleet uniforms and the painfully drawn-out resolution of one bit of foreshadowing. While the slightly-emo new generation Enterprise crew sure ain't the Old Guard, they're a remarkably respectful reinterpretation of the originals and easy to like. Either you're happy to see Jim (or James) again or you're not. I was.
