I guess I didn’t tell everyone that I actually don’t start work until next week. I have this entire week off. My plan for my time off is to relax and get lots of sleep. It sounds simple but sometimes, vacations can find a way to deviate off the intended course.
Last night, I went to see a 11pm showing of Superman Returns. It was very satisfying knowing I could be at a movie theatre until well past 1am on a Sunday night. Walking into the auditorium, I knew the movie had received somewhat lukewarm reviews so I did not expect a fantastic movie. After it was all over, I thought it was better than I had expected it to be. When it comes to DC properties though, I’m still partial to the Dark Knight himself.
Speaking of Batman, they announced today that Heath Ledger will indeed be portraying the Joker in the next Batman film. The film will be entitled The Dark Knight. You can read more here. As expected, Christian Bale will again be wearing the caped crusader’s suit.
In totally unrelated news, I was fortunate enough to help celebrate Bryan’s successful Ph.D. defense today. I congratulate Bryan for all his hard work and dedication over the last half decade. Dr. Bryan, you should feel proud of this accomplishment.
As happy as the defense was, it serves as a precursor to the departure of both Bryan and Sarah to Australia where they will find new adventures. They leave tomorrow! I would like to thank them for their friendship over the last several years. Have a safe trip down under and good luck with everything!
