Winning, Wedding, & Wings

What a busy weekend!

Friday night was poker night at my buddy’s house. It was a lot of fun and for the first time ever in my participation of any poker party have I been the top dog. It was nice. I should say, it kicked ass because it did. I know it sounds like I am a lousy winner but when you never ever do, it is nice to really get all the mileage you can out of it!

Saturday was spent dreading attending a wedding Saturday night. I think this is typical male thing because most guys I know would rather do a lot of things instead of going to a wedding.
I will say that the wedding was really great.

The ceremony was very beautiful and the reception was a lot of fun. The food was good and the music was awesome. Did I mention the open bar? So with all that, Food, Fun, and booze, why would I not look forward to it? I think the leading up to and the freaking out of spouse about what to wear, what to bring, when to leave, and how to wear hair is enough to make me wish we did not get invited to another wedding for the rest of our lives! But as usual, we leave having a good time and are suckers for the next matrimonial celebration.

And Sunday started with church at two different churches! Our good friend was preaching at his church so we went to his early service to see him and then headed over to our church for the late service. It is cool to hear two sermons on the same text in the same day. Both were so different but both were good. Weird how that is.

After church we went home for a quick costume change and then headed off to the Regal (we call it the “Regal Beagle”) Theater to see “The Dark Knight.” Friends let me tell you that this movie was fantastic and it was the world’s introduction to the most psychotic villain we have ever seen. Heath Ledger was terrifying, frightening, haunting, funny, creepy, and very hard to look at with his haphazard makeup and scraggly hair but when he was off screen, all I did was want him back.

I will not give anything away because I am not nor will I ever be a spoiler kind of guy. I hate that. No, I will just say that if you have the slightest bit of interest then you should head off to the theater as soon as possible. If not, make sure you see it when it hits DVD because it really is fine acting and writing that makes this movie. Not special effects and stunts although those kick ass too.

Did any of you see “The Dark Knight?” Please let me know what you thought but PLEASE no spoilers. That will make me have to delete your comment.

Phooey, George. I can read posts on my computer at work but cannot see the pictures. When I came home I was hoping to see you and Jasmine all duded up in your wedding attire.........

Dark Knight was awesome - this coming from someone who is not a big movie watcher and has never seen a Batman flick before. Absolutely excellent - I didn't even look at my watch once during the entire film.

Dark Knight was fantastic. I have some criticism, but for the most part, I loved it. Loved Ledger in it, loved Bale, loved Cain and Freeman.

I have not seen Dark Knight, but my 13 yr old son saw it Friday and LOVED it.
