I boldly went where I've never gone before...

So, we went to see Star Trek on Sunday. Even though I’ve never ever seen a single episode of the original series or the previous movies (never! not even by accident where, say, I was strapped to a bed and the only channel with reception was running a Star Trek marathon and my eyes were held open by toothpicks and superglue, ever) I liked it!


Chris Pine is hawt even with his bushy brows or maybe I have a thing for bushy brows since my Andy has them too. I just thought about the bushy brow thing and I don’t want you to misunderstand me. There are certain wild bushy brows that I find acceptable and then there are those that are manicured bushy which ewww!

Anyway, Pine’s character is a funny smartass that, thank heavens, does not remind me of William Shatner’s acting. I guess some people thought William Shatner was a stud in his hey day but I’ve never seen the attraction.

Speaking of Andy's bushy brows, you would have thought being late for this movie would spell disaster for Earth and its inhabitants because he went on a rant where he almost forbade me to use the bathroom before we left. I had to put my foot down (on his face) and tell him that I was not going to hold it for hours just because he didn’t want to miss a single second of outer space. I think his fear was that there would be gobs of people standing in line. At 10:45 AM. On a Sunday. I had to reassure him that few people have less of a life than we do but then I remembered we were talking about Trekkies so I stand corrected. Kidding! Maybe.

I’m sure there were many inside jokes I missed but I didn’t feel like you needed to be wearing pointy ears to be able to follow the movie. Oh yeah and I especially liked the retro outfits the chicks um women wore.

We went to the movies after taking my mom to breakfast to celebrate the fact that I was the first one to make her a mother. She and I joke about it every year because I always expect her to give me a present and she always says “I gave you life” and I always respond that that trick is played out and now I want a pony/koala bear/Brad Pitt.

I further celebrated mami’s day by cooking dinner. For some reason she loves my veggie lasagna and as an added bonus, Maria, THE VEGETARIAN, was also able to dine on my fine cuisine on her first mother’s day ever because I didn’t use as much ground seal as the recipe calls for.


I also prepared a nice salad and some homemade garlic bread.


Nothing but the best for my momma!

I know I know, I’m a horrible daughter considering she is always cooking our favorite dishes and she does it from scratch.

I think she was a little disappointed that I didn’t invite the clan over to celebrate but frankly the husband and I have a budget we live on and our life got a little more complicated once my brother Rick, Maria and the baby moved in. Andy and I joke about the fact that we don’t have children and yet our food bill suggests otherwise. So, due to the new responsibilities and in order to avoid going to the poor house, our home is now officially closed for any future hosting events until further notice (Thanksgiving being the exception).

I’m hoping to make it up to her on her birthday by organizing dinner at a nice restaurant I hope it’s understood that everybody will pay for their own food because I don’t think Andy will be too thrilled with staying behind to help the busboys clean up. ;o)


Mini rant regarding Costco. Andy and I bought some lemon blueberry and blueberry muffins. And we, AS A COUPLE, have this to ask:


Did we misunderstand the label? Did you mean "with a hint of blueberry"? Because we could not find a blueberry to save our lives! Well, Andy found one but then it fell and he cried out "No! Where the fuck are my blueberries??" Maybe we should have paid for them with a hint of money? Bastards.

P.P.S. to jean knee:

Don’t think I didn’t catch your question regarding my dogs and what they got me for mother’s day. I know you did it because of last year’s post. I forgive you because you are my friend but next year? I will make you wear my new shoes as punishment.



  1. Holy sheep dip... talk about a post of extremes...

    Star Trek to shoes? But it's good that you slaved all day over the hot stove... you will live long and prosper.

    And a kitty? A KITTY??? Are you calling me a puss? :P

  2. Those are some rockin' shoes!

  3. I'm glad you liked Star Trek. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

    I'm all for salad and bread in a bag!

    Jean should model the shoes for us.

  4. there is no way my masculine foot could ever contort enough to fit in that thing


  5. Oh, those shoes are sexy AND bad ass!

    I had held strong to the position that I would not be going to go see the Star Trek movie. I am not a Trekkie/Trekker/Man Marrid To Me, but dammit, by Friday night, I was willing to cave and go. I don't know what's going on with me, but I'm going to go see it. I will use the bathroom first, too, because 2 hours is a long time to sit and control anything, especially a bladder.

  6. I just want to see the movie for Sylar.

    Hey, you should have a register at your door and charge like at an all you can eat buffet. Kids should be free if you bring a gallon of milk and cereal and bread. Just a thought...

    Or maybe like at food collection places put a tub there and we should bring donations, like a 12 pack of coke or a case of water or something...

  7. I think I liked the movie too...except... it was too Hollywood...too updated and that slightly bothers me. It just ...felt weird! Maybe I'm over thinking it. I do that a lot lately.

    Is it just me or does the new Kirk have Brad Pitt similarities in his looks??

  8. I haven't watched many of the Star Trek films, so I'm not sure when I'll get round to this one. I've still got to watch the series that has that sexy vulcan woman, and that's higher on my priority list...

  9. We went to see Star Trek on Saturday night ... I really liked it too. Shocking. Capt. Kirk's dad was a total hottie, so that started it off in the right direction for me.

  10. Hey, your cooking looks like my cooking!

  11. First I saw Chris Pine looking all hawt and I am all "OOOOH"

    but then I saw the shoe and I was like "AAAAH"

    Thanks Bee.


  12. I'm with cool...Hawt boys (mmmm), cool shoes (ooooh), but don't forget the yummy HOMEMADE food! (The trick is, if it's frozen,ya can pry it out of the plastic tray they sell it in and plop it right in your lovely pyrex dish, then cover with their plastic stuff and
    bake like crazy, baby.) That's how I do homemade...shove the bags DEEP in the trash. Don't tell, ok? :)

  13. Oh, and I loved Star Trek too - I got dragged kicking and screaming to the movie and I gotta admit, I really really loved it! And not just 'cause of the cute boys...I'm deeper than that! Ok, maybe not...


Ask me no questions and I’ll tell you no lies.
