New bike on the horizon...  
from riding my current bike into the ground. It seems like I just got the bike I have now, but it was actually more like 12-13 years ago. We'll probably visit the bike store tomorrow with new pedals/seat/etc. to be put on, and try to get it fitted well for me. Mainly, can we reduce the reach to the handlebars? That's always a problem (long legs, short torso), but the hardware setup on the old bike didn't allow for many modifications. I'm hoping the new one will be more flexible.

TV-wise, we saw the Star Trek Discovery premiere, but no further episodes. The Klingons were a big turnoff-- I hit my limit on them with the other more recent Star Trek shows. Why doesn't anyone want to explore the Romulans? Or, I don't know, some original ideas?

While channel-cruising, you sometimes spot shows or movies with interesting names, like Swamp Loggers, or Darkman, or Leprechaun In The Hood. Can I even begin to express the disappointment of coming across Bizaardvark and discovering that it is NOT in any way a show about actual aardvarks? Even animated ones? I feel so betrayed...

Halloween is on the horizon. What are you giving out at your house? :D

I absolutely agree with you about the Romulans. They were my favorite growing up. So under used.

The whole, "dark side of Vulcans" idea was interesting to me, because the two branches of the original people started out the same and went to opposite extremes. Plus, I think the Klingons and Romulans were about evenly-weighted enemies in the original series. Newer stuff, though? Geez, writers got ridiculously over-invested in the whole Klingon back history and fake language, to the point where it nearly ate DS9 alive near the end of the series.

And with this new show... it's yet another incarnation of reinventing what Klingons look like! They must be the fastest and most randomly evolving species in the Star Trek universe! The "Discovery" group looks like lizard people.

All of this seems to be incredibly exciting (or addictive) for Star Trek writers and producers, but for me... nope. ZZZZzzzzzz...
