knitting & Indy

So yesterday Brandon texts me that he wants to go to the midnight showing of the new Indy movie and really really wants me to go too. I was feeling kind of tired but willing to do go. Checked with Will and Luke and they were also up for going with the full knowledge that they would still have to go to school the next day.

Brandon wanted us there a full hour before the movie started, because it was also sponsored by a couple of radio stations and his favorite Rick Emerson remembers him and came up to talk to us at the end of the movie too. Since we were going to be there so early, I got started on the second Express Lane anklet. I had the toe done and was working on the first chart pattern while waiting. I think he noticed me knitting before the movie started too, but was possibly too polite to ask.

The movie was fun. Harrison is showing his age but still doing his stunts. They kind of set it up so that it was implied they might have Shia take on future 'Indy' type action. I sat there and kept commenting on all the movie similarities I spotted - The Mummy 1 & 2, National Treasure, James Dean & motorcycle riding (Luke said 'Fonzie'), Brandon picked out Close Encounters for the 'alien' aspect, and many more that my blurry brain can't remember.
