Have you seen this video? I know I’m probably last on the bandwagon with it, but I just had to post it. The WMD and I got such a kick out of the other night that we were almost crying.

We’ve had an unusually mild May for NC this year. But with June 1 right a mere few hours away, summer has finally arrived. It’s in the 90s right now. Blah. I told Matthew that summer’s in NC are my winter. I just want to stay inside in the air conditioning for the next four months. I love that there is so much going on around town right now with farmer’s markets, outdoor music concerts and garden growing, but it. is. so. hot. And it’s just going to get worse. And to think, there are some people who actually like this kind of weather.
We’ve seen two movies in the last week. First we saw the new Indiana Jones flick. Let me just make myself clear. I LOVED Indiana Jonesas a kid. I even took archaeology classes my freshman year of college so I could be like him. That was, until I realized that being an archaeologist meant being nothing like Indiana Jones. That’s when I switched to Public History (and then Professional Writing). Cest la vie.
I did like this addition to the IJ movies. Yeah, it was a bit too sci-fi, but I was thrilled that it was filmed to look like the original trilogy and they stayed pretty true to the main characters. I was even impressed that Harrison Ford did a pretty good job. For an old guy. I guess 60 really is the new 40.
We had some free vouchers from the movie theater, so we ended up going to see Prince Caspian with Mark and Jennifer last night. Again, another movie to go along with a favorite of mine. I haven’t read The Chronicles of Narnia for several years, so it was hard to remember how true to the story the movie is, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I did notice there was a lot more death in this one than the last and I was sadly missing more Aslan screen time though, even if it is true to the story that he is not seen for the most part. Overall, I would recommend it.
I’m working on a new blog right now. It was birthed out of an idea straight from my hubby. He’s always been way more creative than me. You can find out what it is at manmademarket.wordpress.com. I’d be intersted to hear your feedback on this one.
