The family made it to the theater last weekend to watch the comic-book-based adventure “The Avengers,” and it was a blast. Violent – yes – but in more of that comic book kind of way. Lots of alpha males, special effects galore, and school-yard humor made it a fun family outing for my teens.
I really enjoyed the “new” superheroes I got to meet. Hawkeye and Black Widow were two who were new to me. I loved how Black Widow held her own in a room full of testosterone-driven egomaniacs. And her superpower was subtle, but cool! Which got me thinking…
Which superhero would you want to be? (You can pick anyone, not just those featured in the movie) Would you want the ability to fly, super strength, genius brainpower, indestructibility, or something else?
Me? Well, what I need is the ability to be in two places at the same time. But Black Widow’s power could be cool…(I don’t want to spoil it, though).
PS. if you do go to see The Avengers, be sure and stay until the very end of the credits. There’s two bonus scenes, one toward the beginning of the credits, and one at the end.
December is a crazy month for the DeJarnett household. Rather than regale you with my to do list (I’m sure you’ve got a lot of long ones yourself) how about a musical commiseration, courtesy of Straight No Chaser:
We were lucky enough to see this talented group in concert last night, and it was a really nice break. What do you do to take a little break during the hectic holiday season? Do you have a favorite song or carol that keeps you going?

Some nerdy fun this morning: A literal interpretation of computer problems.
Isn’t it funny to see how much technology has influenced language? What computer terms tickle your fancy when taken out of context?
