Guess it’s time to start talking about something other than the beach. (You’re welcome)
How about MOVIES! I loooove movies. I don’t so much love going to the theater though – people annoy the holy hell out of me. However, I will suffer through the whole experience for certain movies. Kris and I saw Iron Man a few weeks ago, and omigosh it was so good! I’m a huge Robert Downey Jr. fan now. And if you haven’t already seen it (is it still out?) you MUST stay through the closing credits. There’s a cool surprise at the end.
OK, here’s where I lose my “cred”. I saw Mamma Mia last night. I know, I know. But I thought it was FABULOUS. I love me some musicals, and I heart ABBA too. I saw this musical on stage a few years ago, so of course I had to see it in the theater. I will admit – it was over the top, cheesy, embarrassing at times, and Pierce Brosnan can’t sing a lick, but I DON’T CARE. It was pure escapism, guilty pleasure at its finest. And no, I didn’t make Kris go with me, but I WILL be torturing him with the (Broadway) soundtrack for the next few weeks.
I should have made Kris go with me though, because Wednesday night – we’re going to see The Dark Knight. OK, I want to see this one as much as he does. (Do I earn back a little respect now?) But I hope my extreme case of coulrophobia doesn’t prevent me from enjoying this flick. Nah, I’m not worried – my love for Christian Bale will surely ease my fears. 🙂
**Edit** – I just read that Christian Bale has been arrested for assaulting his mother and sister? WTH?!?! OK, I’m reserving judgment until the whole story comes out, but – YIKES! If this is true, he is SO off my list.
