Replaced the broken mirror on my pickup, today. Thank you Mr. Budd-it took me a fair bit to get around to it, but I finally did and I'm glad I waited till it was hot out. Had to glue the trim piece on. Also had to pry off the inside door panel and that would've shattered in the cold for sure.
Also managed to haul off all the scrap metal that's accumulated around the yard, including the cast-iron tub, which was one heavy bastard to get into the truck. Got five bucks for it at the scrap yard.
Tonight my son called and asked if I wanted to watch the new Star Trek movie with him. I heard it was good, but as a die-hard trekkie I had a few reservations, among them, different actors for the crew and an ingrained fear of continuity loss. This last bit is unique to Star Trek, in that all good fans know the universe, it's timeline and the fact that any storyline is constrained by what has come before as well as what is yet to come. In this, I was not disappointed, as JJ Abrams and Co used a classic ST workaround. The only thing I was a bit dissapointed in was that they left the door open so that a sequal would not be constrained. However, all in all it was a fast-paced, rollicking good old Star Trek ride and I loved it. Oh yeah, and the new actors? Not bad.
Ended the night writing this with a glass of milk and a few, blue oreos. No milk at sea, you know?
