John and I watched Batman Begins last night. We were somewhere near Tibet - training with Qui-Gon or something - when John announced, "I don't think people really want this much backstory." I turned to him and said "Dude, it's called Batman Begins. That's what it's all about." OK, so he had forgotten that bit, LOL! After that he seemed to enjoy it more.
I don't get the big hoo-ha about Christian Bale. Granted, I didn't know who he was before seeing this, but I had certainly heard about him. So what's the big deal? He's kinda geeky, isn't he? He looked familiar, but I haven't filmographised him yet to see why. Anyway, yes, the man can do awesome pushups that I will wish I could do come blackbelt testing, and yes, Batman is a very cool character, but I have to say that Bale doesn't do it for me. He did very well as Batman, I just don't find him sizzlin' hot. Then again, I can be slow to catch on to these things. Maybe in a couple of months I'll think he's the hottest thing since branding irons. . . Maybe some fans can help me appreciate him better.
So tonight I nearly got drunk off the fumes of one of the TKD parents. Ugh. That's kinda sad. No one appeared to be actually drunk, so I'm guessing alcoholic. :o(
Tough sparring drills tonight!
Note to self: do more Kegels. OK, OK, do them, period. Sigh.
One of the guys in our adult class turned 50 this weekend. In a last-minute burst of inspiration, I called the Master's wife to see if she had an extra white belt that could be turned into a grey belt. *grin* She jumped through multiple hoops (ending up with a nastily streaked dryer drum) and made him a grey belt, which the Master presented to him yesterday. Great mirth abounded and he wore it to class today, LOL! He got to warm us up today cuz he was special. :o) It's a good group of peeps - like family. :o)
I downloaded Gmail's Talk feature and called my sis FOR FREAKIN' FREE!!!!! Wow - that was cool!!! Now I need to get my mom a 'puter! It was AWESOME. (to the tune of Spiderman) Technogeek, Technogeek, la la la la la la la la. . .
Speakina geek, it's time to soak in the tub and read a geeky book. :o) Night y'all!
