holy self-indulgent shopping spree, batman!

I am a woman. A 20-something year old, fashion forward, label hungry woman. Which means I'll pretty much use any excuse to go shopping. So, when I made plans with some friends to see Dark Knight tomorrow evening, my mind immediately began to race with all of the fun outfit possibilities. After kicking ass and taking names during my Chinese final this morning (I got an A, thank you), I hopped into my Jeep and raced to the mall, with visions of this shirt in my head:

Seriously, I could not believe they still had some left. I was panicky all day thinking they might have sold out, but they had it, and in a size S, too! It's a men's shirt, so it's still pretty big, but it doesn't matter because it's so cute and topical. I love topical clothing. Who am I kidding, I love all clothing, but I like my graphic tees to be somewhat socially relevant.

I convinced my friends to buy Dark Knight tickets early, which makes me way less anxious about what everyone is projecting will be a CRAZY opening weekend. 9:30 p.m. showing, baby. I'm so excited. I have this weird thing for comic book movies. I'm tempted to use the word "obsession", but I think that might be a little strong, especially since I have never so much as held a real-life comic book. Maybe I just have a thing for buff dudes in tights. Whatever it is, I always go to comic book movies opening weekend (Spiderman 1, 2, and 3 I went to midnight showings) because opening weekend audiences are always so pumped up and psyched to be there. Sometimes they even clap, which I sort of think is really lame, but whatever, it makes me feel more involved with the whole movie-going experience.

In the spirit of milking a sure-thing for as much money as possible, Domino's has introduced a Gotham City Pizza. Basically it's just a normal pepperoni pizza, but they throw around the word "cloak" in their advertisements and slapped on a Batman logo, and presto, you have a Dark Knight pizza. You know I'm ordering one both before and after--maybe during, will they deliver to a movie theater?--the movie. Ultimate nom-age.

My mom works at the Domino's World Headquarters. She'll be pleased that someone is buying that pizza.

Oh! I just want to go to see Christian Bale, my next husband. (Yes, I know he's married. Don't rain on my parade!)

I'll be babysitting my nieces while my sister and brother in law go out for their 10th anniversary. Living vicariously through you!
