meme: memories; star trek v

Leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember! Don't send a message, leave a comment on here. Next, re-post this in your notes and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty cool (and funny) to see the responses. Repost as "memories."

Wow, such a beautiful day today. I'm about halfway through Never Let Me Go, which is profoundly disturbing - some say in an understated way. Imagine, "Memoir..." but novel-length and better written.

I couldn't sleep last night, so I watched Star Trek V. LOLZ. Cutsey, hokey, but fun in the end. It held my attention a lot more easily than I expected. Maybe it's because I haven't seen it for such a long time - I've always said it's the worst Trek movie, and it certainly has its moments of cheese (and I would have taken the idea of a stripped-down, barely-functioning Enterprise-A and run with it further - and in some cases not run with it at all, for instance what does Kirk's portable logbook (which flashes "System Error" - in a special backlit window etched "System Error!") have to do with the state of the rest of the vessel?). But if you accept it for what it is, it's actually a pretty good bad movie.

I'm only writing this because I hate posting entries that are just memes.
