Out of the Blue

Last year MrsBlue bought a pair of deck brushes, saying we could use these to clean our deck with OxyClean instead of hiring someone to power-wash it. This weekend I learned what should have been obvious, which is that by "we" she meant I would be doing the work, apparently her brush would be for beating me if I slacked off. So I'm out there following the instructions from the OxyClean container -- mopping the deck with some Oxy-water, letting it sit, scrubbing it with that deck brush, and hosing it all off -- when it occured to me what was happening: In the year 2009 I was actually swabbing the deck! I would have complained, but I was afraid I'd end up in the brig... or maybe even walking the plank.

I watched the new Trek film last night, and ended up leaving the theatre a little bit dissapointed. I guess my expectations were a little bit too high....

Its not a bad flick per se, the acting is good and even the premise of the film works, but the story is very shallow and Kirk's sudden promotions kept pulling me out of the film. Starfleet comes across as a rather disorganised bunch of morons and not a super elite organization in charge of protecting the safety of the Federation.

All in all the film is mostly fun to watch, but only thanks to the great cast and acting as well as the action sequences.
I hope they do a high budget series instead of a sequel as with some better writing it could really shine.
