A few ponderings--
Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise? I just saw a picture of them on the 'welcome' screen, and I suddenly feel so...OLD. He seems a bit obnoxious about the whole affair, but I guess dating a beautiful girl 16 yrs your junior will bring out the tiger in any man, even if it is the still-gots-it Tom Cruise.
And can I just say, that right now, I think she's a pretty lucky girl. For crying out loud, she just made a little Batman movie, with Christian Bale in the batsuit, Liam Neeson, and the fantastic Morgan Freeman; I saw the preview--wow. AND she's dating Tom Cruise? AND she's adorable? (Somebody, quick, hand me the botox and send over the extreme makeover team...ha!)
I'm bad when it comes to Batman--lol, Audrey and I were in Barnes & Noble, in the kids section, where they had picture books of the story with stills from the movie in them...and I had to thumb thru them. Over and over again. Mr W calls me in the middle of my ogling, so I joked with him, after I explained where and what I was doing: "if I bought these books for the kids, it's not like I'm really looking at them, is it?" He has the grace to indulge his wife, and just chuckle. He'll save the merciless teasing for later.
Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka? I'm intrigued and perturbed about this. I think he's a good actor, but I don't know...will I be sitting there looking for Gene Wilder?
The new Coldplay CD will be released June 7th, I believe. I'm looking forward to it....every time I hear Chris Martin sing 'honey, honey' in a lyric, I lose my train of thought. What can I say, I dig the voice.
While I was at B & N, someplace that is completely dangerously too close to us now, I decided to reserve the new Harry Potter. Nolan and I love these books. I teased him that this time we would get two copies, because I read fast, but we still fight over who gets to go first between Nolan, me, and Mr W. I may even Harry-it-up this time, and go get it at midnight the day they start selling it, I feel so strongly about it. I was admittedly a bit disappointed in the last book, so I'm hoping I get some answers in the new one.
Did I mention Batman? :D
