My wonderful Meg kitty.

Stayed up way too long last night showing zetshia_gudani the Tim Burton "Batman" movie.

Observations:
1. The Batman voice is somewhat similar to the much-maligned new Batman's voice. Not quite as over the top or loud, but tonally very similar.
2. Jack Nicholson's Joker was better than I remember. I don't know why everyone discounted his shot at the role post-Dark-Knight.
3. Best soundtrack for a Batman movie. Say what you will about the man, but Prince rocks.
4. Special effects stood up pretty well, though the Gotham City parade seemed a lot smaller than I remembered.
5. Stop the press! Who's that? Vicky Vale. And I love those giant eyeglasses.
6. None of the anchors wear makeup after the Joker's commercial for Smilex cosmetics.

From the hockey game tonight.
1. Row of guys behind me talking about baseball the entire game. "YOU'RE AT A HOCKEY GAME! FOCUS!"
2. Three chicks who came in after the national anthem, sat down, and started texting. They left before the beginning of the first without ever having looked at the ice. On the plus side, they didn't come back.
3. Jaywalkers. If you're on the left side of the street and the left turn signal goes green, there's a _really_ good reason why the pedestrian signal still has the stop signal. Or -- as I yelled -- "WHAT PART OF THE RED HAND DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?!"
4. The drivers who stopped for the pedestrians.
