Names! Nerds!

Bloggie pals!!

Gumtree says: I look for Charlie.


Star Trek: Into Darkness was utterly utterly fabulous. I give it a gazillion stars and then some! If you are going to see it I promise you, you won't be disappointed! It made this trekker nerd very happy indeed!

And you know what else made me happy? A footballer called "Fitz Hall" is know as "One Size" to his fans. 

Yes. As in  "one size fits... "

Have a great week y'all! :-)

p.s. I didn't make up Mr Hall's nickname, I read about it here!

Gumtree, buddy, you are looking in the wrong direction.
Yes! Star Trek was amazing. Even better than the first. My review goes up tomorrow. Really enjoyed it.

I saw it last week and was bowled over! Even better than the first and now I can't wait for the next one - they have to make more don't they?
Ha ha - One Size!! x

Helena said...

I'm going to see Star Trek Tuesday with a friend who's also a trekkie. I'm so excited and I'm so glad you loved it! If only Gumtree and Charlie could share your enthusiasm.

Mark said...

I can't help but wonder what that guy did to his fans to encourage that nickname. Well anyway I'm glad Star Trek was fun. My dad is a life long Trekkie and he said he enjoyed it.

Fuzzy Tales said...

I've heard good things about the new ST movie, so I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I can see how this football player came by his nickname, given his real name! :-)

I am sure we will have to check out the ST movie! Sounds fabulous. Hello Charlie and Gumtree!!

William Kendall said...

I'm planning on seeing it sometime soon, when I'm feeling up to it.

Gumtree looks much too adorable for his own good.

Maria McKenzie said...

I'm so glad you loved the new Star Trek! My husband was getting discouraged by bad reviews he's read. I'll pass on your post! I can't wait to see it! Hello kitties:).

Eileen said...

Did you find him Gumtree?

I'm not a Star Trek fan, but I am happy you enjoyed it. The fact is, I haven't seen a movie since "The Help" came out.

That nickname is perfect. I wonder if his parents ever thought about it when they named him? LOL!

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

Definitely looking forward to seeing Star Trek: Into Darkness. A gazillion stars ... that's quite a powerful review!

LTM said...

LOL! What an awesome nickname!

Ooooo, I want to see that new Star Trek SO badly!!!

LOL--Charlie is very camouflaged! I almost couldn't find him either. ;o) <3

Jemi Fraser said...

Can't wait for Star Trek!!!!! I love hearing everyone say they loved it! :)

Jay Paoloni said...

I'm not a fan of Star Trek, but its trailer kind of intrigued me! I'd like to see it! Not as much as I'd like to see the Wolverine though!
Say hi to your cat buddies!

Tammy Theriault said...

wow...you and everyone else has really enjoyed the movie. maybe i shall see it...maybe

Medeia Sharif said...

Cute picture.

Everyone's talking about this movie. I'm interested in seeing it.

Clarissa Draper said...

I love that Footballer's name. I also loved Star Trek as well.

KarenMcG said...

Thanks for the information about Star Trek. Glad you liked it.

Hmmm, Gumtree where do you think Charlie is?

Patsy said...

That's a great nickname.

klahanie said...

Aha, even though I can't afford to go to the movie theatre, I'm glad to read the glowing reports about the latest Star Trek film.

You do realise that your adoring fans in North America, unless they click on the link, might well be thinking of a different type of "football."

Deniz Bevan said...

One size fits all, ha ha!
Love Gumtree among the flowers. Summertime!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

We went to it last weekend. We all enjoyed it. I think I need to rent some of the older ones for our teen to get a full appreciating of it.

DWei said...

Just don't get the Star Trek game. It's an absolute disaster. I've watched some people play and it was so poorly done.

Theresa Milstein said...

I see Charlie!

A lot of positive feedback about Star Trek. Glad you enjoyed it!

susanjanejones said...

Glad you enjoyed the film Kitty, gumtree looks lovely among your pots.

meowmeowmans said...

Did you find Charlie, Gumtree?

I've heard only good things about the new Star Trek movie ... we will have to see that one while it is still in theaters!

Editors At Work said...

Lol! Just read it again...OneSize? Seriously?

Nas

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I want to see the new Star Trek movie so badly --I'm glad you enjoyed it, Jenn!

LOL on the football player's nickname --that is very clever!

Lynda R Young said...

ha! I'm glad you enjoyed Into Darkness. I liked it too. I just needed to switch off my brain from those huge plot holes ;)

LynNerdKelley said...

Hello OC! I've missed you. Glad you enjoyed the new Star Trek movie. Hope I can get to a theater soon to see it, too. Great nickname, "One Size."

Lydia Kang said...

I'm seeing it this weekend! EEEEEE!

Vanessa Morgan said...

Why are cats always looking in the wrong direction even if the 'thing' they're looking for is almost right in front of them?

Gina Gao said...

Star Trek was AWESOME!

Hello lovely Kitty, Charlie and GumGum....I have tagged you in a meme but it's one I think you will enjoy a lot. xo

Nas said...

Hi Kitty, Charlie and Gumtree!

fairyhedgehog said...

I think we're going to see it when the weather gets worse!

Love your picture, as always.

Margo Berendsen said...

Oh come on you have to share your favorite part about Into Darkness. Ooops, that's harder than I thought - I had lots of favorite parts! Scotty's comment about jumping off a bridge and landing in a shot glass was great but there were so many others. I need to watch it again!!!
