Wow, I am just remembering that I was supposed to come back and post some more on Friday. Well, I ended up taking the boys to see Spider-Man. We got to the theater at around 6:00pm, because I knew the place would be packed. Well, the 7:00pm movie was already sold out, so we bought tickets to the 7:30pm movie. We had to go into the theater around 6:40pm in order to get a decent seat. It is very hard keeping an 8-year-old and a 1-year-old busy for almost 45 minutes. :frazzled:
So anyway, it ended up being TOTALLY worth it. The movie was completely awesome, lots of action, an ALMOST plausible storyline (hey, it IS based on a comic book, after all :D), and a bonus in that Donovan stayed seated in his stroller for the WHOLE movie, without screaming ONCE!
I was a bit annoyed by the reasons that Peter uses when he tells MJ they cannot be together. Honestly, you can tell men invented comic books. (*Deep, masculine, resigned voice* “I must save the world. You would only be in the way. We can never be together” *As he is thinking…”make way for a new chick in the next movie/issue/whatever” – no committment, no strings attached*) :LOL:
We didn’t end up getting home Friday night until around 10:00pm, and all of us went right to bed.
Then, yesterday, we went to visit Donovan’s grandmother (C’s mother). I think it is so funny how I am closer to her than her son ever has been or wanted to be, and, as she tells me over and over again, I treat her thousands of times better. I love that woman. She used to do drugs, live on the streets. Now, she is five years clean, has her own place, and pays her own bills. She is an inspiration. We had a great time, I stayed the night there with the boys, and she pampered all of us mercilessly.
Then today was BEAUTIFUL outside, so we left Grandma’s early, and went to the park for a few hours. It was so nice to be out of the house, and, at least for a few minutes, not think about who ISN’T in the house anymore.
Anyways, I am pretty tired, and I STILL need to get started on my part of the Story-Go-Round. UGH, I haven’t even looked at it…a few more days at the most, I promise, ok?
I kind of feel like plugging a bunch of people tonight, since I have been kind of missing in action in people’s comments lately. First, congratulations to Lynda on her engagement. Yeah, I know, I am all late, but better late than never. 😛
How do I love you guys? Let me count the ways….
Rose and Kari and Branny and Alex and Lynn-Lynn and Su(zi)e and Romel and Mike and Gina and Sarah and Tashia and Shunda and Stacy and Lynn and Craig and Sue and if I forgot any of you, I love you too, ok? :kissy:

Spread the love

woo! i saw Spiderman this weekend and love it, too. at first, i was annoyed with the ending, as well, and his “reason” for not devoting his life to MJ. (am i spoiling the end here?) so i asked the others i went with, and i interpreted it completely wrong; just before the scene when he tells her, he has a dialogue about how every person he cares about eventually gets hurt; he was telling her no, i can’t love you because he wanted to protect her from what might happen to her. so despite his own feelings for her, he walked away in order to protect her. make sense? one quick note: Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst signed contracts to appear in all three Spiderman movies. the director of Spiderman really felt that changing actors, directors, costumes, etc., really detracted from the Superman and Batman movies. he wanted continuity and flow throughout all three movies, thus the contract the principal actors had to sign. 🙂

Actually, I DID understand his reasoning, and in a way I respect him for it, I think my beef is more with the whole premise of that happening in the first place, I mean, what about his aunt? I highly doubt that he will leave her alone completely, and people are still going to know that he loves MJ, so it just seems to be stretching the point a bit to me. Maybe I just try to read too much into movies with not much plot beyond the normal superhero themeage. :LOL:
I am glad to hear that the same actors/love interests will be in all of the movies.

I totally disregarded the first part of your post because I have yet to see Spiderman, but I’m glad you had a great time with your boys. And thanks for the pluggage woman 🙂 *hugs*

I wouldn’t worry about the SGR. Life comes first…sounds like you already know that, though.
By the way, I know nothing about your life other than what I just read (this page) but if I were you, I’d dump the deadwood. (This C person.) Again, there could be a multitude of factors I know nothing about…but if he’s cheating on you, shirking his reponsibilities to his own children, and so on, you don’t need that. Just advice from a complete stranger.
