Even Crazy People Like Batman

Caught the 10am showing of The Dark Knight. Yeah, I did. You can do that when you get the day off because you have to work Saturday. That was...wow. Damn impressive, that Heath Ledger. I was also amused they filmed much of it in Chicago. I know, New Yorkers all claim NYC is supposed to be Gotham, but to me it's Chicago. The first Batman stories I read in an ancient collection (Batman from the '30s to the '70s) had him fighting mobsters. And when I was seven, mobsters in the '30s = Chicago. Blame Al Capone.

We did also plan to see Mamma Mia! so Lisa could get her hunky Englishman fix, but we totally needed to decompress afterwards. So that'll be saved for later.
