    I'm totally excited about this movie, after all, I was named after James Tiberius Kirk. The baddest dude in the Alpha quadrant. It will also be the first movie that I have seen in a movie theater in about 2 years. Normally I don't go to movies, I just rent them on DVD, but I want to see this one on the big screen.

    I know your excited too. Admit it Nerd!
    It's as if there are people who play RPGs that don't have computers or something. Seriously, people need to upgrade to 1994 already. - - -TheRedRobedWizard

    Cool

    I went to The Watchmen today. If it werent for the trouble of trying to get my ticket from the keosk(sp?), i would have got to see the Star Trek preview. Yea, i realize that i can see it online, but it really isnt the same, now is it.

    Oh, and, i am excited to see it too.

    Good luck and enjoy, Kaewin. I, myself, prefer to wait it out a week or two and see it on a weekday, in the daytime. For there is nothing nicer than feeling that you have the whole theater to yourself/yourselves: no kids screaming, no people moving and crunching on foodstuff, no babies crying, , no cell phones ringing, etc.

    The real pronblem on going on a weekday the rugrat sitter is not available. My 14 yr old can't rember to run the dishwasher after she loads it so that means I don't think she is old enough to watch her brother and sister.

    And she wants a cell phone too

    I'm not excited. TPTB have spewed forth so much excrement labeled as Star Trek product that I am wary at best. I have been a fan since the show was created. I'm still a fan, but I want quality, not just more.

    TPTB don't get it, they haven't been getting it for at least a decade. We the fans don't want Kirk and Spock back, we don't want more catsuits, we don't want boobs and explosions. We want good stories. Good stories is the one thing they don't seem to be capable of doing.

    Excited? No. Vaguely sick to my stomach? Yes. I have no confidence they will do this justice. And no reason to feel otherwise.

    [teenager]But you didn't tell me to run the dishes, you just said put them in the dishwasher![/teenager]

    Give her one of those disney phones that is embarassingly childish and lets you track her every move via GPS. Laugh gleefully. Profit.

    Passive-aggressive "I don't want to". That is a teen. I like the Disney phone idea.

    You could threaten to hang around her friends and use out of date slang on them.

    Haha, tell her to think for herself and see if that works Nah, I'm being mean.

    See if you can find Bill Cosby's stand up routine called "Himself" on youtube. He's got a delightful rant on parenthood in it ... several, actually. One of my favorites is the bit about their nightly routine. They have to tell their children, "Go upstairs, get in the shower, turn on the water, put soap on your body, please don't forget to rinse, dry yourself off with a towel, put your pajamas on and go to sleep." Because if they don't say it like that, they'll forget a step.

    Oh ghodd, that thing HURT! I literally laughed till my ribs were sore. Seriously rolling on the floor laughing. Why? Because it is TRUE! Every word of it is gospel truth.

    I seem to remember something like the following from that routine.

    Bill: "Why are your pajamas wet?"

    Child: "Because I forgot to dry off!"

    I can trust her to clean herself up right but the idea to use old slang near her friends is cool. When I want to bother my daughters in the car (this way they can't get away) I practice using "new slang" at least something I have herad in the last couple of years. They hate being called "G"

    I like when they game and role a number than I say "miss" just to make them go miss. Children torture is fun. Might have to go with the Disney phone, she hates Hanna Montana and High School Musical, need to fin d one with one of them on it.
