My Little Life: Five Question Friday! 8/2/13

1. What is on your Summer 2013 bucket list?

I don’t really have a bucket list…I’ve been around a lot and done a lot of things and am pretty content with the things that I’ve done, places that I’ve been, etc so any such list I might have of things to do before I go is pretty simplistic…for this summer, my one ambitions is to landscape this area so that any rainfall runs parallel to and not towards the house. It will have to be dropped quite a bit on the bank side and the fence past the tank will have to be replaced as the ground level there will drop my about half a metre: probably a good time to convert it to post and rail….First snow 2013 - Raurimu-069

2. What is the most useless item on your child’s back to school list?

Not something we have to worry about now and, as grandparents, we can encourage all sorts of inanity…

3. What is the one reality TV show that makes no sense to you?

There’s reality shows that make sense? The only ones that I watch, if they meet the definitions of ‘reality show’ are some of the more up market cooking shows like Masterchef…well, just Masterchef, really….

4. What is one movie you can watch over and over again? Why?

Oddly enough, the 2009 version of Star Trek….I hated when I first saw it but it’s really grown on me. This might be just because I know that it outrages all the pureborn Trekkies to the point of pain but more and more it is because I think it has a top cast, is an interesting take on an old but tired story, and pays more than lip service to character development…on nights when TV just sucks and I don’t want to think too hard about selecting a movie or I just want something familiar on as background while I work on something else. more and more, Star Trek 2009 is my pic…


Just for those too dumb to figure out what actually happens in the movie, this picture might help make it clear. Everything after The Original Series is gone now (and so, in logic, is First Contact). Is that a great loss? Mmmmm…possibly not…4000 seasons of Voyager, The New Generation and Deep Space Nine pretty much thrashed the franchise to death…MAKE IT STOP!!!! So JJ ABrams did….get over it…

5. What’s your favorite back to school tradition?

Enjoying week day daytime peace…
