But...I wasn't going to go there. Moving along to the purpose of this post...since I'd rather not discuss the brutality of our dictator. Ahem. Sorry, just had to get that off of my chest.
So as most of you know, Rachel is really into Marvel superheros, especially Thor. She's really excited about the new Captain America movie coming out on the 22nd, and she's already been talking about the Avengers movie that will be coming out some time next year. So I'm sure that you can imagine how excited she was when Mama told her there was an animated Avengers miniseries on instant play on Netflix.
Mama said she could watch it as long as she waited until the girls were either down for quiet time or in bed. I guess it's too scary for them. Rachel was so excited to see it she could hardly wait. Yesterday, when Mama finally put her girls down for quiet time, Rachel asked if I wanted to watch it with her.
I've never really been a huge Marvel fan myself, but that's basically because I haven't really seen much Marvel stuff. And I figured it would be way more exciting than those tedious period dramas that everyone else in the house seems to adore. Seriously, if I have to sit through another Jane Austen movie, I'm going to scream.
We asked around to see if anyone else wanted to join us, but didn't get any takers. Of course, if we were going to watch some lame movie like "The Young Victoria" or "Emma", everyone would have been all excited. [Look, don't get all offended if you like period dramas, okay? Just go talk to Tess or Emma about it, not me...unless you enjoy sarcastic comments about your Mr. Darcys and whoever else.]
We decided to watch on the desktop computer this time. For one thing, it has a much better picture than Mama and Papa's ancient TV. For another thing, we could sit closer and have a better view.
It didn't take us long to find the one Mama was talking about. It was called: "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes".
(By the way, please excuse the mess. Mama's computer desk has a severe case of "flat surface syndrome"...you know, if it's a flat surface, it's covered with stuff?)
So, all that to say, I am officially an Avengers fan!!!! :D I'm just as excited for Captain America to come out as Rachel is now. I can't believe we have to wait until next year to see the Avengers movie!!! I don't know how I'll ever be able to wait that long.
