It is a dark night...  

 I just got home from the midnight showing of The Dark Knight.  It was well worth the money and lack of sleep, in my opinion.  I'm glad Clayton and Austin talked me into going...  The theatre had a few problems getting it started and I thought they were going to have a riot on their hands, but they finally got it working and the fans returned to an excited crowd instead of a pissed off mob.  

Cappuccino Chocolate Chunk ice cream from Braums is amazing, by the way.  I know this seems like a completely random comment (blink, blink), but Kandace and I got some before going to the theatre.  We got there 2 hours before it started and still ended up sitting at the neck-straining front of the auditorium.  Oh well....

I've been trying to read more this summer.  Fiction, I mean.  I finished the Bell Jar.  It was sad, but interesting and enjoyable (if you can say that about it).  I am currently reading a book by a Chicana author titled Let Their Spirits Dance.  I like it so far.  It's about the Vietnam war and how it affected families from el barrio that that lost sons in the war.  Today, I read that the only Chicano man to receive a Medal of Honor from that war was buried in Morelia, Mexico.... which is the city I studied in for a few weeks 2 years ago.  I like reading about foreign places and thinking, "Hey, I've been there!"  It really makes me want to travel alot more.  I tend to go a bit crazy if I'm in the States too long.  Is that bad?

Well, I really should try to sleep now.

Oh yes!
I want to see it again, but will probably restrain myself until it comes out on DVD...
