Guys, I don't know if you've heard, but there is a new STAR TREK movie coming out tomorrow and I am fucking giddy about it. I am dancing around the office and singing (not singing a Star Trek song, per se, but singing nonetheless) and tomorrow is going to be the greatest day of my life.

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I like Star Trek. But I've only been a fan since 2003 or so, which means that this is my FIRST STAR TREK MOVIE. And it looks like it might actually be good! Fingers crossed we get a new TV series out of it! Though I suppose another movie is more likely.

Simon Pegg! Chris and I watched Spaced not too long ago, and I am excited to see Simon Pegg.

I haven't watched any trailers so far, so it will all be new to me!

Hi! It's my birthday today! That is awesome! I am thirty!

Unfortunately, I have to make a presentation to a Planning Board tonight. Boooo. Luckily, it is a tiny, insignfiicant project, at a laid-back, developer-friendly town. So we should be out of there quickly. Dear god I hope I didn't just jinx myself.

I had a party this past weekend! Unfortunately, I was a dummy and did the age old no eating + vodka shots combo, and I passed out at like 12:30am and missed most of my own freaking party. BOOOOO. I am such an idiot. Oh well. Hopefully everyone had a good time. And I did too, during the part where I was awake! I got to wear my old Halloween costume. And Obi-Wan is my boyfriend. )So it can't be all bad.

It had a theme, you see: Star Trek vs. Star Wars. Some people actually came in costume, and most everybody else wore something festive and Star Warsy. Mitchell was Zefram Cochrane! I knew I could count on him to back me up.

But so if you came, thank you very much for coming to my party! And getting into the spirit of things! And bringing presents! And cake! I'm sorry that I did not get to say goodbye. You guys are the best! Also thanks to everyone (mostly Manse residents) who helped me set the place up for the party, including the installation of an Okudagram on the bar.

Tomorrow Chris is taking me out to dinner a fancy steakhouse in the city. This weekend I will see my parents. I have the greatest friends in the world. In three weeks I will be on a plane to Amsterdam. Being thirty is great so far!

Damn, yo. Now Edwards is dropping out too? I don't enough about his platform to vote for him, but that little quizzy thing had him ranked above Obama and Clinton for me, so I was going to check him out before New Jersey's primary next Tuesday, since Kucinich bowed out already. Balls. Oh well. I hate not having choices. I guess my vote will actually matter for once, though, maybe. That might be neat. Oh man, thank god Guiliani is out! I am so happy. EFF that dude.

Today I'm wearing my Juno underwear! You know, the pale blue with red and white cherries? They're from Old Navy. I kept whispering I have that underwear!!! fervently during the film. I liked that movie. I cried during most of it, but that's just me, I'm a crier. Here come the waterworks.

I think Jason Bateman did a pretty good job. I usually do not like that man. Chris and I are starting to watch Arrested Development (we finished Deadwood a few weeks ago -- I think that may be my favorite television series ever) and the reason I didn't take to it whilst it was still on the air -- despite so many clever people telling me how good it was -- was mostly Jason Bateman. He's just so smug. He was good in Juno, though. They made me like him in the beginning, and then hate him at the end. Actually, they made me want to sleep with him in the beginning, and I never thought I'd want to sleep with Jason Bateman. His face was just so . . . sexy. On film, on a big screen, you could see the texture of his face and his hair, and he just seemed so real. I sound like a lunatic.

Speaking of faces, Jennifer Garner's is weird. She has a weird thing going on with her mouth, or something.

Also Chris and I saw Cloverfield last weekend. I liked it. I think it could have been a smidge less hand-heldy and still seemed realistic, but I didn't get sick or nothin'. I liked that none of the actors were familiar to me.

The Star Trek teaser trailer did nothing for me. Maybe if I hadn't seen it online first . . . probably not. It's boring. The real trailer had better be way more awesome. When I saw the trailer for Order of the Phoenix, I gripped Chris's hand, tighter and tighter, and almost cried from excitement. (Too bad I already told you that doesn't mean much.) But seriously -- my adrenaline was pumping. Due to a movie trailer. For a book that was one of my least favorite of the series. Maaaan J.J. Abrams. I really want this thing to be good.

Work is all right. My office is lonely, but peaceful. Life is good. My mom turned 60 yesterday. I'll be 30 in less than a month. I'm tired of this dreary, cold, rainy winter. I need to move farther north where it snows, or farther south where they don't bother with winter at all. The whole point of snow is to cover up the ugly gray deadness of everything, and with no snow, it's goddamned depressing out there. I'm ready for scooter season already, I tells ya.

Oh wait -- I forgot the most amazing thing: my taxes! I'm going to file my federal taxes today! It is still January!! This is the third or fourth time I'm doing my own taxes, and the first time I'm filing them more than 48 hours before they are due. I AM AMAZING.

Oh God, they just cast Bruce Greenwood -- aka Mitch Yost -- as Christopher Pike!

I wasn't sure which of my friends had the overlapping interests of John From Cincinnati and Star Trek, hence this LiveJournal post.

I -- I'm not sure how I feel about this. JFC is the only thing in which I've seen this dude, and Mitch Yost [haha, I totally typed "Mitch Young" by accident] was a total dickhead. So it's hard to judge whether I like the guy. I guess he did a good job of being a totally unlikeable dickhead.

In other news, my company gives every employee a free turkey every Thanksgiving! That is so totally random and yet cool! How very A Christmas Carol.

In other other news, I was Bender Bending Rodriguez for Halloween and my pictures are here. Halloween was awesome. I danced a lot.

I slipped on ice on the way to my car yesterday morning, invisible ice on my sidewalk. I fell on my behind in the most cliched way possible, feet flying out in front of me. Somewhere, a slide whistle tooted.

I went to the Animation Show at the Prince last night. Tami put me on the comp list, Sean gave me my ticket, and Meghann gave me a hug. (I really liked her hair). And the old man who ripped my ticket was sweet.

I really enjoyed the movie. It made me wistful for Liquid Television. There was a Plymptoon, and they even included the Office Space cartoon, the one with Milton and the stapler. Man, 1991, you ruled and I miss you! Ha ha, not really. But I discovered/realized that I don't really like gross, gory cartoons. Isn't that lame of me? I mean that's part of the appeal of cartoons, you can do some whacked out shit and it's okay, because it's a cartoon. But it just doesn't do it for me. The cartoon I walked in upon (I was late) was probably called Peanut (nevermind, I just looked it up, it's called "Strange Invaders") and it was this little kid doing all these horrible things and everyone in the theater was laughing, but all I did was wince. The same thing happened with Don Hertzfeld's Billy's Balloon. I mean I liked it, and it was cool, and I'm glad I saw it finally (on the largest movie screen in Philadelpha, even), but I didn't laugh at it. Oh, how lame and grown up am I! I can't stand the Happy Tree Friends either. Eh.

Okay, you probably don't want to read any more of this. It's all Dune and Star Trek talk. I know, I know. )

Oh man, I don't watch a lot of Star Trek: TNG, but I had heard that Picard didn't like kids, and just now he FREAKED OUT that there was a kid on the bridge, he couldn't even LOOK at her! I love you, Picard.
