NCC-1701 Nebula 1

Jets shouldn't be that quiet.

Right before, RIGHT BEFORE, waking up I was having a high-calorie dream. Lot going on, including:

* A real-world arrest somehow happening on a TV show. Complete with a commercial break.

* Billy Connolly walking past in his Boondock Saints get-up. Yeah, that one. I couldn't tell whether he was in character or not. Which would be more disturbing? My dreams seemed to be in Disturbing Mode last night. Or at least Disquieting.

* A World Cup game that ended with a jet plane flyby. And one of the jets circled back to do stunts right over the stadium. Then IN the stadium. Very close, very hover-y, and very TOO MUCH QUIET FOR A JET. I kept worrying it would run into something or someone. Even Dad (who was there), who's had more experience with jets than me, was worried about the flying. The jet thing happened RIGHT BEFORE I WOKE UP, so...yeah. Slightly disorienting start to the day. Less disoriented now, please and thank you.

Meme, Day 26!

Day 26 - A movie that you love but everyone else hates
Unfair question: If a film has enough going for it to be worth loving, then not "everyone" is going to hate it. (Of course, surprising films can earn love. One critic somewhere in the U.S. once claimed Tougher Than Leather was the best film of 1988.) Not only can I not think of an answer, I don't want to give an answer then have a bunch of people say "Hey, I love that film!"

Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season finale
The "HUH?!"-apalooza that ended Season 2 of Twin Peaks. I've yet to see the follow-up film (Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me), I think partly because I don't want to have to think more about that ending.
