Enjoying a “night in” tonight with some of my absolute favorite beer (Cheboygan Blood Orange Honey) and the A-Team movie reboot with Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper (pictured above) and that South African guy who was in that movie set in South Africa with all of those aliens…ah yes, “District 9!”
I don’t normally like movie reboots, and I especially hate “she boots” (covered that topic in a previous blog), but this seems all right! Another reboot (or remake) I liked was “True Grit” featuring The Dude.
In other exciting news, I got the Jeopardy! final q right tonight because of a question me and my team missed a few weeks ago. What American city, founded in 1758, was named for a former British prime minister who also defended American colonists? Also helps that he shares his first and last name (by birth) with a hunky A-list actor. Hey whatever works, right? Uh, speaking of “hunky,” (ahem)!
Oxfords, not brogues! If you’ve seen “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” you’ll know what this means!
Lastly, I just learned that there is a trailer for the new “Kingsman” movie “The King’s Man,” which is supposed to be a prequel (which means that adorable actor Taron Egerton won’t be in it). Neither will Colin Firth (I could listen to him talk all day). I’m a pretty big Mark Millar/Matthew Vaughan fan, so I’m sure I will like it!
In pub trivia news, trivia is supposedly coming back to Sticks in Ypsilanti, MI beginning August 13. I’m not planning to play or trying to summon a team, but I did tell one of my younger teammates about it. Indoor trivia in public will have to remain on hold for now.
What else? Camping! Leaving for a two night trip in a couple of days. Parents in law coming to camp site to visit us. Will try working in a side trip to see Lake Michigan (it’s been about a year). Not supposed to get in the lake til it warms up (big advisory right now), but we can look at her, anyway…
Over and out!
