Yup, you got that right. Aliens. Aliens in the Amazon with Indiana Jones...who most people in the movie call Henry. I couldn't even believe it when they pulled out the skull and it was shaped like what you would imagine any alien skull would be shaped like. I kept saying to myself "please no aliens, please no aliens" but there it was: Aliens. And their spaceship.
Oh, and there's more. Indy survived a nuclear bomb in the first 10 minutes. Seriously. He was accidentally in a test site, hid in a refrigerator and survived. The rest of the town was obliterated into dust, but the refrigerator was thrown sky high and bounced around some and then Indy walked away fine.
But, there was a highlight to my day. We had a double feature, and saw Iron Man next. Now, that was the movie of the spring. It should make tons of money and should spawn many sequels. It is well-written, well-acted, and so cool. The toys and technology and humor in the movie are so sleek and fun. Robert Downey Jr. is excellent in this movie. He and Gwyneth Paltrow are so fun together and he has two robot friends that are amusing.
I now have renewed my crush on Robert Downey Jr. I had one along time ago when he was on Ally McBeal and was so McDreamy. I think he might have been the original McDreamy, if it hadn't been for the drug problem. But now I am free to love him again because he is cleaned up and saving the world from terrorists. And all muscle-y and looking good in the red suit.
I guess the best part of the day was that my husband and I spent the whole day together. We started with some quiet time in the morning, went to a movie, shopped around a little, had lunch, and then went to another movie. We shopped, ate, laughed, and held hands. It was a really nice day. Have I mentioned that my husband is the sweetest man? He really is. He doesn't mind my boyfriend David Cook or my crush on Robert Downey Jr. He is secure in my love for him and our small family.
Saturday was the best day for me...maybe notsomuch for Indy.
