Cure for a rainy afternoon

Earlier this week, on the 4th of July, the missus and I - not quite beach or big public fireworks sorta folks - decided to head out for a movie. We decided on Nacho Libre, as we'd been hearing good things for a while, and I'd pretty much watch Jack Black re-enact the bombing of Dresden.

Sparing you a play-by-play or another plot synopsis, I'll leave it briefly that the movie was a ton of fun, surprisingly appropriate for most ages and it even had a warm-fuzzy message buried in it. It was a great surprise, particularly after watching what I thought was a very overrated movie in Napoleon Dynamite.

It's a pretty dreary day out there, and we are in Tampa after all - it might be like this all weekend. If you're looking for something to do it's a great way to spend an hour and a half in the air-conditioning. Try the Muvico at Centro Ybor, it's never busy. Ours was a private showing of Nacho Libre - there wasn't another soul in the theater.

Have a good weekend, everybody.
