Batman Begins  
Batman Begins: Totally rocks. Go see it.

The movie ended, and it was with the greatest pleasure that I applauded. And said, "Ah, this redeems the summer for me, and completely washes away the bad taste left by... ah, that other major summer release. Whatever it was. I have forgotten it now, and had my faith renewed in good filmmaking."

Went for ice cream and hung with friends, after. Soothing and Phishy

Returning to my car, I was perplexed that my car -- and only my car -- had obviously been rained on. All other cars in the vicinity appeared dry, as did the ground. *looks questioningly at the car* What were you doing while I was gone?

I resisted -- but only barely -- waiting around until the owner of a World Rally Pearl Blue WRX with an SWRT stick in the window and a licence plate reading "Saurmon" returned. I also resisted -- even more barely -- taking a run up Highway 9. Reminding myself repeatedly that I currently am low on resources for dealing with the consequences should anything go awry managed to put a damper on that plan. Alas.

Now I think the ice cream is starting to wear off. I will probably not finish the last 30 pages of my book. Which may be good, since I have a feeling this story arc won't conclude in this book. I do rather hope they get one of the main characters unchained from a dungeon wall before the end of the book though. Unfortunately, at a rate of six minutes per page (reading in a foreign language can be so slow!), finishing off the last 30 pages will keep me up until roughtly... 3 AM? Yeah, I can skip finishing tonight. I hope...
Current Mood: fat & happy

It was raining here yesterday. And on my way home, I yelled at a slow-poke green Integra--"You're a disgrace to the name!"

It's all part of the mystery...

Batman and Icecream


I was very impressed with what they did for the movie. In general quite refreshing from the summer's fare thus far.

Rain when it's mid-June is just wrong.

It rained in Hollister, quite heavily, I was suitably impressed. Wish I could have joined you for an apparently cool movie, but we didn't leave the supplier until 7pm or so.

Weird. I completely missed seeing any rain. And other than the wet car after the movie, completely missed seeing any signs of rain. All around me I hear tell of the unseasonal downpours. And yet I see none. I almost feel deprived.

Yeah, it's too bad you couldn't make it for the movie. Though it might have been inconvenient for you getting back. I got home at 11:30, and I live only 10 minutes from the theater. Oh, and leaving Hollister at 7 wouldn't have worked for catching a 7:45 showing, really. So now you must go forth and see it on your own, for it is a very cool movie!

Must agree. We just finished seeing Batman Begins. Is actually rather amusing if you cut out mentally all the bad parts, which was mostly Rachel for me. He's had better gfs, and I hated it when Batman revealed himself. I really thought his answer to "who are you" would be: "Batman." Reminds me of Batman Beyond, when he said, "the voices in my head don't call me Bruce." Otherwise, was pleasantly surprised. It looked sillier in the previews and ads, like when he was airbrushing his armor black.
