Pointless Post #81 - "Iron Man" Edition

I was blessed enough to attend a screening of The Dark Knight Rises last night with some friends.  During the previews before the film started, everyone was still talking to their neighbours and such (including me), but the entire theatre started to quiet down during the new Superman trailer because of how cool it looked (Nolan and Snyder touches, how can it not?).  Then just as the trailer was about to end and the title Man of Steel appeared and you hear and see glimpses of Superman streaking through the sky, as he prepares to break the sound barrier, my friend beside me says very loudly:

"Oooh, IRON Man!"

And a bunch of us just start cracking up, but not only our little group, but our section of the theatre.  Particularly one guy one or two rows in front of us because I could hear him stifling his giggles the same way I was.  It was more about the delivery of the joke.  You had to be there.

By the way, Christopher Nolan,

Pointless Post # 80 - Kriss Kross in church edition

Pastor J (or maybe its MC, because he was holding a mic at the time) cheered me on by singing "Jump, jump!" at me on Sunday afternoon.  We had a church barbecue and everyone was lining up for food, ignoring the bouncy castles.  I took it upon myself to say hi to the bouncy castle attendants (they looked bored) and to test the durability and funness of the apparatuses.  I bounced up and down in the first one.  Then I moved onto the other one.  I let out some involuntarily shrieks of joy and laughed very, very loudly.  It was edifying.

Pointless Post #79 - Summer Edition

Dear God,

Thank you for my sweet, sweet farmer's tan.


PS - The sun is hot.
PPS - I'm not complaining.  It's nice to see it again.
PPPS - I know that's not a picture of my farmer's tan, but of my sweet, sweet hair elastic on my wrist tan.  If I posted a picture of myself shirtless, I'd lose half of my blog readership, which means I'd be down to one reader.

Got gas for 134.9¢/litre last week and lately its been around the 135-137.9 level.
