Well, I went and saw the new Star Trek movie today with my sister. I think I'll write a longer review later, but I just wanted to say right now: it was brilliant. It was extremely visually stunning and quite unlike Voyager or the other series. Lots of action, lots of attractive characters (apparently that was a major source of grief for "real" Trekkies, but I think I've obsessed over Star Trek enough to call myself a real fan, and I thought this movie did the franchise justice, even if it did appeal to non-sci fi fans as well). I loved characters like Scotty and the Russian pilot (so cute!).

And... yes. That's that.


[through translation]
Waiter: What would you like to drink?
Me: I would like apple juice..... apple juice.

This was after my sister and I had a minor tiff regarding "Apfelsaft gespritzt", which is sort of like mineral water mixed with apple juice. It's vile, but she loves it, and I nearly ordered it by mistake.
