Today, and a movie review with no spoiler!

Oh my today is a beautiful day! Think I might enjoy some if not most of it outside! Maybe I will head over to my local Home Depot and pick up two lawn chairs! We have only two and one is broken, both were uncomfortable, and it is time for new ones. The boyfriend has a hard time letting things go and I am anticipating a bit of a struggle. He will be fine with the concept of two new chairs I am sure but he will want to keep the one that isn't broken. It's worn, it's not comfy, and even though it isn't broken 'yet' it is well on it's way. Every time you sit in it it creaks louder and louder! Maybe I'll just toss it when he isn't looking...or maybe I will get lucky and it will 'mysteriously' break. I know it sounds horrible but really, this chair is well past it's prime.

Went and saw the new Star Trek movie last night. We met up with Aaron's friend Fraser (check out my blog on fishing on the weekend!) and although I like Fraser, I had wanted this to be like a date night. It's NOT a date with three people. Aaron spent like a half an hour trying to convince me to go. He even went so far as to say he'd cancel with Fraser but I was like 'No, you made plans I'm fine, you go' (cause I am stubborn like that) Finally I relented after he bribed me with a promise of 'date night' involving Angels and Demons! Needless to say I am glad that I went. Without giving anything away...the movie was awesome! Visually stunning, just the most spectacular eye candy in a very long time! The special effects were just incredible! The plot was also very good, leaving a healthy twist at the end. What was show stopping? The performances by Karl Urban (Bones McCoy) and Simon Pegg (Scotty) stole the show! This movie made me laugh, made me cry and made me want more. Go see this flick it's a fun romp and a great installment for the Star Trek series! 5 Stars!
