Bats Live in Caves... so I guess it makes sense

So Molly & Austin had a birthday party to go to Saturday at the local multiplex. The kids were going to have their party and then see "Journey to the Center of the Earth." Loads of fun for a bunch of 11 and 12-year-olds. Don and I took a ride over to drop them off, and Emma decided at the last minute to tag along. When we got there, we realized that it was about 10 million degrees outside, away from the air conditioning, and the thought of spending a couple of hours in a movie ourselves sounded pretty good.

So, hubby and eldest and I decided to see "Batman" (what else?). How was it? I thought it was great, and Heath Ledger was astounding as the Joker. No different from what you've already read in the reviews, right? So why am I bothering to blog about this? Oh, it gets better.

As we're walking out to the car, we were all sharing our view that the movie was great. My darling hubby says, "Yeah, that guy who played the Joker was pretty amazing. Who was that?" Emma and I looked at each other, sure that Don was just busting us. But no, he actually had no idea that Heath Ledger had played the role, and had heard nothing of the hype around this.

Now, I realize that perhaps I'm a little bit too plugged into the celeb thing, but really, is it possible to have been functioning in society for the last 6 months without hearing any of this? Well, obviously it's possible, since he had no idea, but how likely is it? Were there others of you who didn't know about the Heath Ledger connection?

I suppose that perhaps I should give him credit for avoiding lemming-like behavior and thinking for himself and all that, but I had to ask, "Have you been living in a cave???"
