Is it tomorrow yet?

I haven’t totally disappeared. Since the kids go back to school tomorrow and the husband will be hitting the trails hard on upcoming weekends due to the clock ticking down toward the end of snowmobile season, we spent some QT together as a family this weekend.

Yeah, kinda glad that’s over.

Today I need to play some catch-up: rewrite my blurb from the Weekend Question, answer some emails, get the school gear all back together. Clean up some of the six more inches of snow we got that we didn’t need. Listen to my children further expound on all things X-Men.

Tomorrow I get some alone time. Finally. No more having the pros and cons of Rogue taking the Mutant cure hollered through the bathroom door. No “What’s for lunch?” at 10:15 in the morning. No mas.

Just me and my (silent) furry feline friends.

    Oh, Melani, that’s just mean. :doh:

    I get Rogue taking the mutant cure. What still bugs the hell out of me is her going back to the school and getting her old room back. She doesn’t belong there.

    Well…where else would she go? I don’t think Wolverine would let Storm toss her even if she tried, and plus she’d probably be a good counselor for the teens. It’s a tough call because her gift was so…extreme.

    Or maybe they gave her the boot five minutes after the move was over. :rofl:

    And she might not be an outcast for long, judging by Magneto’s little solitaire chess game at the very, very end of the third movie. Although…he might be trying whereas she wouldn’t.

    Wolverine and Phoenix at the end of 3…one of my top romantic moments. Love that scene.

    And my short kid (who is a Cyclops fan) insists we can’t write Scott off as dead because we only see his visor and Logan says he “thinks” she killed him, but my tall kid (a Colossus fan) insists he’s toast.

    I swear, now that that superheroes have bridge the 5 1/2 year gap between my boys, we’re all Marvel and DC, all the time, which manifests itself in numerous viewings of the X-trilogy. They’re not old enough for Blade.

    Anybody seen Daredevil? I know it has an R rating, but…how much more violent/language/sex whatever is it than the X-Men?
