So, Vermont's US senator, Patrick Leahy, is this big Batman fan, and after being an extra in the last movie, he got a speaking role this time around. He also managed to arrange a special screening of the film in Montpelier as a fundraiser for our local library (Leahy grew up around here). We got 3 tickets. So the 3 of us are getting to see "Dark Knight" a week before (most of) the rest of the world, plus get an introduction from Leahy and Warner Bros Chairman and CEO Barry Meyer.

Pretty nifty, huh.

In other news:

I picked the most delicious, sweet strawberries today. We’re going to be eating strawberries constantly for the next week, to get through the 10 pounds I picked. I also bought fresh peas. I love this time of year. End of June, beginning of July – peas and strawberries. Yummy.

If you haven't seen the Where's Matt Now dancing video, go check it out: Here’s the NYTimes story that explains the video.

Mmmm, strawberries. Lucky!! They're already out of season around here, and darned expensive. The only nice ones we can find are at Whole Foods Market (or, as we refer to it, "Whole Paycheck Market"). And peas, yum!

I keep hearing good "pre-reviews" about Batman. Have fun seeing it!

Oh, dang. That sounds like a great time to get to see the film early!

Enjoy the strawberries. If you blend or process them, you can store them in the freezer and have smoothies ready to go.
