Crazy people at the movies (with weapons)...

My good friend Roger Ebert just recommended (via twitter) an article in the L.A. Times about a scary and bizarre incident at a local movie theater. Apparently, a woman was talking on her cellphone during 'shutter island' and a man shushed her. This somehow escalated until a man who was with the cellphone lady stabbed the shushie guy with a meat thermometer.

Now... I only bring this up for one reason, and one reason alone: I'm very curious to know how many people had the same initial reaction to this that I did... "Who brings a meat thermometer to a movie theater?"


the five things i fell in love with today...

1) While i HAVE actually shushed the wrong person at a movie theater, it has yet to cause me bodily harm.
2) Martin Scorsese.
3) There are about five movies in White Plains that I want to see this weekend. The weakest of the bunch looks like "She's out of my league" but I'll probably wind up seeing it first, as i can't take my eyes off Alice Eve. Is that weird? Is that wrong? I don't care.
4) The hope that someone out there will know how to get the cherry coke stains out of my carpet. (d'oh)
5) Roger Ebert.

  1. I think you mean who DOESN'T bring a meat thermometer to the movies? LOL.

    If you have to carry around a meat thermometer as your weapon of choice.....maybe it's time to restock the arsenal.
