I Won! I Won! I Won!


I have been watching the reruns of Star Trek spinoffs on TV the past several months and finally decided that I wanted to watch the original Star Trek series. I've ordered the DVDs from our local library and have started to watch the first season. I'm really getting into it and maybe I'm becoming a trekkie! So, when I heard the local radio station was giving away tickets to the premiere showing of the new Star Trek movie coming out next week, I decided I had better give it a try.

The radio competition was to have 3 callers in a row stump the judges with a question they couldn't answer. It could be any question, but I had a great Star Trek one ready to ask. It took me 21 times to call before they answered. The screeners asked me what my question was and then they said, "ok, you're next." I then started with my question (and could hear that weird sound when you are live on the radio), "What was the name of the vulcan who was betrothed to Spock?" They guessed the wrong name (but it was close). I told them the correct answer and they asked me who the person was they had said (and I knew who it was). I was the third caller in a row to stump the judges so we each got 4 tickets to the premiere! And Chelsea sat in her car between seminary and school and heard me on the radio!

Hmmmmmmm, I think I'm pretty excited about this. Oh, I didn't give you the answer did I? How good are you at Star Trek? Let me know your guess (or you can listen to me on the podcast: http://www.star941sandiego.com go to jeff and jer show podcasts for April 28 7AM. (It's not up yet but should be shortly.)

Wow. That's pretty exciting to win. Now that you're a Trecky you'll have to visit Andrea and go to the Star Trek museum in Vegas.

How fun! Enjoy the movie. Must have been fun for Chelsea to listen to you.

I was sitting in my car bubbling with excitement when I heard Brent on the radio because I knew that Brent would stump them (He can stump pretty much anyone if he tries)

That's awesome, Brent. That takes not only great luck but great skill.

So, now that the movie's out, have you gone to see it? Jack and I saw Wolverine last night (first movie we've been to since Christmas break) and are hoping to see Star Treck next weekend (can you tell we're trying to take advantage of our time off from school?)
