party time: day 16
Up early to go see the new batman flick! The theater was surprisingly full at 9:30 in the morning. And they do make popcorn and pizza at that hour. Most people had the good sense to leave their under-12-ers home, but there were a few young ones in the crowd. A man in front of us brought his 8 and 10 year old boys – and I have a feeling his wife may be less than pleased when she’s dealing with nightmares for the rest of the week.
But, back to the movie: it is nothing short of awesome. And a half. While Iron Man is my favorite movie of the summer, The Dark Knight is probably the best movie I have seen this summer. And I have seen A LOT of movies.
Heath Ledger is brilliantly demented. The story is full of unexpectedly sick turns, that by movie’s end, had me starting to descend into the crazy, anarchic world that the Joker lived in. And it’s not a nice place. There were a few cringe-inducing moments that had me not wanting to look at the screen, but I have a weak stomach when it comes that sort of thing.
So go see it! But leave the kids at home.
Did some more painting – surprise, surprise. I think I’ll be able to finish up next weekend …
I am currently enjoying a bowl of apple slices, strawberries and frozen grapes. And a bowl of cool whip. And a bowl of caramel. I love fruit, it’s the perfect thing for dipping in sugar!
