After dinner, I decided to watch "First Contact," which was actually the first purely TNG movie. Without meaning to, that made the weekend a James Cromwell double feature. (He was the President in "The Sum of All Fears.") He and Alfre Woodard, serious top-notch actors, really classed up this movie.
I don't think I knew that the Titan missile Zefram Cochrane turned into the warp-capable Phoenix was actually a real Titan missile, at an old missile silo in Arizona that had become a museum after it was decommissioned thanks to the START treaty.
I also got done some writing today, including a response to the person from the Downtown Ithaca Alliance who sent me a sort-of apology for having stolen one of my Chili Cook-Off photos from a few years ago to promote this February's event.
