Last week at this time, the news had just broken that J.J. Abrams would be producing, directing and writing Star Trek XI - an announcement fans had been waiting for ever since Nemesis. As the week progressed, however, there were rumours about the news and even about the rumours. Personally, I'd love a Starfleet Academy movie set in Kirk and Spock's era, though I know there are fans plugging for something that could incorporate some of the next generation of crews or that could start off with Archer passing the torch. I'm just glad it sounds like there is progress.
Today I drove myself crazy looking for my missing US National Parks pass, which I need tomorrow to take out-of-town guests to Great Falls National Park tomorrow. We all spent two hours going through every pile of papers in and around every desk and table in the house, plus between the pages of books on parks in the basement and in obscure places like beneath computer monitors and in the laundry. Then tonight we decided to test the new portable DVD player we had bought for our long driving trip this summer, which required that we lift the collapsible table between the front seats in the van that we never lift. Lo and behold, there was the park pass.
