Today is a holiday for those of us North of the border. I forget what the holiday is, I just always think it's Memorial Day since that's the US holiday next Monday. I'll go check....okay it's Victoria Day or Queen's Day though here in Quebec it's called Patriot's Day. I don't really care what it is because the important thing is that it's a day off. Yayz. There's another reason for celebration too (for yours truly anyway) because it's the bloggy birthday. Yup four years old now. I find it hard to believe that I've been doing it that long, this hobby that stuck. At the beginning I tried harder to come up with clever phrasing but now I usually just write whatever comes. Kind of like this paragraph. I always tell myself I'm going to quit the blog on its birthday but then I don't, who knows, maybe 5 will be the magic number.
I read yesterday that on average we get 20% of our calories eating out. I thought that that sounded like a lot but when I calculated my percentage, I came up with 14.3%. (3 meals per week out of 21) For me it's usually two lunches out and then either a breakfast or dinner at some point on the weekend. How about you? Are you above or below the average?
Saw Star Trek at the IMAX yesterday. It was fun even though there were more than a few inconsistencies in the plot. I suppose we're supposed to overlook that. The phrase "suspend your disbelief" comes to mind. At the edge of your seat moments I kept telling myself to relax since we all know the characters endure. I love any story with time travel which this one has (and is how old spock meets his younger version) but there was the same plot paradox as in Somewhere in Time. That is that Scotty develops a formula to beam someone onto a vessel going warp drive, but Spock comes back from the future and gives the formula to Scotty. So where did the formula originate? Same thing in Somewhere in Time. She gives him the watch that he gave her when he went back in time. So where did the watch originate? Anyway, I hate it when they do that because I spend all my time turning the conundrum over in my head instead of paying attention to the film.
