Thursday Update

Work: Work was pleasantly busy--enough to do without feeling overwhelmed. I'll have to type a couple of reports tomorrow and send some information packets out, then work on the April travel vouchers.. After that, filing, if I have time.

I went out to lunch at La Madeleine with a couple of co-workers. I had their Wild Field Salade and a cup of tomato basil soup. They make the best soup and salad in the world. I am totally not sorry that I threw over the Petite Caesar Salade for the Wild Field one.

Movie: We're going to see Iron Man tomorrow night. This is a superhero I've never heard of, so the movie should be interesting.

Journal: I decided to return to the Papyrus font that is what I originally used for this journal. I was using Arial Black for a while because of clouding in my lens capsule, but that has gone away, and I want the prettier font back.

Current Music: "Citizen Soldiers" - 3 Doors Down

I've heard of Iron Man, but I don't know anything about him, other than that there's an awesome Black Sabbath song named after him.

Neat! I wonder if they'll play that song during the movie.


I'm pretty sure I've heard it in the background of a few of the TV spots.

They played an instrumental version of the song in the end credits. I'd actually heard it before!

Yeah, but to me, the Avengers are John Steed and Emma Peel. (g) This SHIELD stuff...nah.

I enjoyed the movie quite a lot, despite the fact that the writers seemed very confused about their message. They kept verbally trying to ram home the idea that 'Weapons are Evil.' But what they showed was the true dichotomy of weapons:

1. Anything is a weapon.
2. Weapons can be used for good as well as evil.
3. Unscrupulous use of a weapon is a poor reason to stop making it. Instead, one must prevent further unscrupulous use.

I enjoyed Robert Downey Jr.'s portrayal, showing Stark changing from being an irresponsible playboy who took everything for granted to becoming a mature adult but still with a bit of the playboy in him.

I hope there will be sequels!
