nomoreuturns: Star Trek Delta Insignia (Star Trek XI)
It appears that I fail at recapping IRL occurrences in a timely manner. *facepalm* Okay, here we go.

On Sunday I met up with [personal profile] naeara, [personal profile] faith_girl222, and [profile] pipsi_pirate at the ScotiaBank Theatre downtown to see Star Trek (again)! I got to the theatre around 3.25, got my ticket, then stood around at the meeting place for a few minutes until I realised that the other two girls were possibly two of the girls I was there to meet. Once we'd all arrived we grabbed our munchies as required, then headed in to see the film.

It was just as good on the big screen as I remembered! I cried again at George Sr's death, and caught a few things I hadn't seen the first time (or on the subsequent viewings on my laptop). I realised that the cooing sound when we meet Scotty is the tribble!* And other stuff and nonsense. It was good to see a movie again with people, especially people who are as invested in the film as you.

Afterwards, we went and took a picture with the Star Trek display, then went down to the Starbucks beside the theatre and talked about Star Trek, fic, the ridiculousness of Twilight, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Fun times! And then [personal profile] faith_girl222 went to do Father's Day stuff and [profile] pipsi_pirate and [personal profile] naeara and I went to HMV to look for the Star Trek OST and then to Chapters to mock William Shatner's Star Trek novels. We also performed our good deed for the year by flipping every bit of Twilight paraphernalia that we saw, thus saving the minds of innocents from the craziness of SMeyer's creation.

And then we all disbanded and went to our various places of residence. And then I got back to my place and downloaded the Star Trek/I'm On A Boat vid and ripped it to my iPod, because I need vids on my iPod to amuse me while I'm at work.

All in all, it was a great day! It was fantastic to meet some people in Vancouver, particularly these GQMFs, as they are made of awesome and win! I'm already contemplating the logistics of organising a watching party for when the DVD comes out...I want some people to squee over the Gag Reel of Epicness and Win and Captain Fine Knocking Over The Captain's Chair with!

* I saw the tribble the second time, but I thought the cooing was an engine or something...and yes, I know, it's weird for me to focus on a background noise, but I can't help it, my brain just picks up on the weird little things.
