various events and their subsequent reviews. Also, excessive word use.Ok, so many things have happened since the last time I wrote anything here (sorry about that, dear blog), so here are my takes on various events and goings -on in my life and the lives of my loyal companions. Except Mer. Bloody Welsh. (Jokes!)
#1) Katie triumphantly/abundantly returns from Oz. Well, most of her returned. Alas, dear Tom was left to pine away and die while she was biking/climbing her way around the countryside. The pack is together again, and all is well with the world. Hazah!
#2) Sterling Ren. Faire version 3.0. We again drive to New York, U S of A, this time in the spacious luxury of Jenn's van. The hoop skirt's never had it so good on a road trip before as usually it's bent into some life-threatening contortion in Mer's trunk. Much fun was had by all, I particuarilly enjoyed the jaunty costumes of ourselves and others (but mainly ourselves), the increase in vendors/things to see, and the jaded knight who had saucy comments after the rainiest joust in the history of the planet. Also enjoyable, Kate's/Mer's constant snarking with the unsuspecting Ren. Faire boys/men, esp. at the coin-pounding booth where many a double entandre relating to "booty" took place. Pictures to come, I just need my scanner back.
#3) Batman Begins Again premiere: Ok, so although I fell asleep for the last third (stupid coffee house and its stupid hours), I enjoyed the movie greatly and it was awesome that we got to see it with a whole bunch of other nerds. Fave. part: the Joker enters into a mob-boss meeting after he steals A LOT from them and "makes a penicl disappear." Horrifying and Hi-larious. I do need to see it again, though, and in IMAX this time.
On the note of Batman, I heard they're already thinking about the next one. The rumor mill claims that Johnny Depp is slated to play the Riddler, while Catwoman is to be played by the formerly-awesome Angie " I'm too busy popping/adopting babies to be cool anymore" Jolie. Here's my beef with that last bit. Angelina as Catwoman is, in my opinion, too obvious. Yes she'd look super-great, but it's a role she's played, in various incarnations, 5 times before: 2 Tomb Raider movies, Girl Interrupted, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and Wanted. Here's what I propose the casting agents do: Get off their asses and do a worldwide search for a smokin' hot, athletic chick who could play Selina Kyle and not need 3 months of intensive training to do it. Check out the capoeiristas in Brazil, the aerialists in Cirque Du Soleil, or the Acro-sport champs in eastern Europe. Look at the Chinese gymnasts or the slack-wire walkers in France. Find me someone new and exciting who will bring something other than Angie's patented " deliver-the-line-, look smolderingly through my eyelashes and pout/smirk" routine. Sigh. I think I'm done.
Anywhoo, It's been a busy July. Next time i blog I had so better have circus news, it's not even funny. Oh, and I'll post pics of the pirate Fest Mer and I are going to tomorrow.

Dream DiaryI had a dream where my dad was a keeper of some sort of tokens or objects that would turn whoever found them into superheroes. The catch was as soon as anyone touched these objects some signal went out to some sort of ninjas/bad people who promptly then tried to hunt my dad and I down. But I had super powers so it was all good!
