I did enjoy the movie; it was entertaining, the action sequences were well done and Uhura got a couple of Nice Moments, making up for the last movie. (Still a bit in the 'most of her character development is as 'Spock's girlfriend' though.)
( One thing that's bugging me... (spoilers) )

|beccastareyes||11:09 am - One Thing I Dislike about My Apartment...|
The heating/AC system is switched over manually twice a year, so we can't have heat and AC on successive days. Given New York has mild enough summers there are only a few times I actually use AC (mostly at night, because it helps me sleep), this normally isn't a problem...
... except there always seems to be a couple of days that get unseasonably cold right after or right before the changeover. Like today. It's currently 8° C/46° F outside at 11 AM. Which would be a nice day... in January. (My apartment is 66° F; it might have been warmer except I forgot to switch the thermostat over to 'cool', so it was trying to warm the apartment without the heat being on... which doesn't work.)
Thankfully I have plenty of blankets. On the other hand, the urge to just build a nest in them and not come out until the temperature cracks the double digits in Celsius is pretty strong.
