So I suppose you can guess what I did last night, eh?

Roar. Also, rawr:

Chris Hemsworth Thor Abs

Don’t mind if I do. Helloooo, Chris Hemsworth!

I finally went to see Thor with my papa last night! I know, I know, we’re slow on the take. But in his defense, he was in South Korea for work, and in my defense, all of my friends hate me and saw it without me. Hmph. One good thing about waiting over a month after a movie comes out? There were literally 5 people in the theatre, and that’s including us!

In fact, there were so few people headed to the movies on this rando Wednesday night that we ended up getting to the theatre waaaaay early. So, naturally, I told my dad I had to explore the grounds of the totally not ghetto at all (uh… false.) Ballston Mall in Arlington (our normal movie theatre is Tysons, but we had to use up his Fandago Groupon.)

Pretty sure this should be my next car.

Yep. Definitely should be. Hahahahaha.

The movie was really good! Not as good as X-Men: First Class was, but still very entertaining. And the PREVIEWS! I seriously think the best part about going to see any big budget action movie is all the previews for OTHER big budget action movies coming out. I’m pretty sure every single preview was for an upcoming superhero movie, and the nerd inside me is ECSTATIC. 😀

I tried keeping this post short & shweet (heh) for you guys since I know the last few have been quite a doozy, and I clearly failed. So I’m cutting it off now! Plus, I’ll be back later on today with a sponsored post reviewing a fun iPhone app (and tons of pictures of the puppers, natch.)

So in the meantime, I leave you with this: Where my (fellow) comic book nerds at? Let’s hear it: favorite superhero? Favorite superhero movie? And while we’re at it, what superpower would you choose if you could have one? My favorite superheros are, and always have been, the X-Men. I grew up watching the cartoon (still one of the best animated TV shows EVER) and my pop is a huge Marvel comic book geek, hehe. I even went as Jubilee for Halloween two years ago!

NO SHAME. Well, maybe a little shame for how big I was back then… sigh. As for a superpower, well, no surprise here. My extraordinary laziness lends itself to me wanting to be telekinetic, a la Jean Grey. But then again, never having to get up to get anything if I can move objects with my mind probably wouldn’t be too conducive to losing weight, huh?

PS: Got my 20 Minutes in today with a long dog walk in the blistering heat!

PPS: There’s another deal for 2 movie tickets for $9 through Fandango and Living Social. Get up on it!
