The weirdness of the weather

So, here it is late May in Arizona. We had both our first 100-degree day AND the first 110-degree day this week. About right, maybe a little early, but not horribly so (as it was last year, when we hit 100 in MARCH). Okay. Definitely summer. Winter clothes packed away, air conditioner on.

So today it's freezing outside (okay, 65 - that's freezing), raining, and there's snow on the Rim. Snow and rain in May? Memorial Day weekend? WTF? (Well, it's going to be in the 80's by then, but that's a REALLY cool Memorial Day!)

Barb and I stayed home today and went to the first (well, this morning's first) showing of Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I thought it was mucho cool, and a lot of fun. Happy-making movie. And Harrison Ford still looks awesome. And now I MUST get all the collections of The Young Indiana Jones Adventures, a show I absolutely adored and just saw it's available on DVD (it may have been before, but I hadn't seen the sets like this). Even at CostCo they're almost $70 a set. *sad face* Especially since there are only 29 total episodes, split up between the three sets... and by all accounts, poorly edited, as well... damn Lucas... I liked that show so much I actually joined the Lucasfilm fan club for a couple of years... and the name "Sean Patrick" came from somewhere. *whistles* I wish I'd recorded them back in the 90's, at least I could watch 'em again, uncut...

ANYWAY, I liked the movie. Now I want to go to Disneyland and ride the Indiana Jones Adventure again. I told Barb we should go to California, get married, and have a honeymoon.

I'm not totally used to my new glasses yet. They're my first progressives, but I'm still used to reading over the tops instead of through the bottom, and I have a slight headache now.

Can non-California citizens get married there? Because if so, I absolutely think you should do it. The Indy ride is a blast, so combining the two would be fab.

Yes! Unlike Massachusetts, they will marry people from out-of-state! (And it's a much closer drive.) And sure, it wouldn't be legal here in Arizona, but STILL!

We've been on the Indy ride, it's just been about ten years or so (maybe more!).

I hope if you girls come to LA we can visit for a bit. :)

I really do want to! At the moment, it's just a wish, as in, I hope we can do it sometime in the next year or so... It's been SUCH a long time since I was there (and my novels are set there, I need to refresh myself!).

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls made me v.v. happy. :-)

Same here! Now I really want to buy the Hat. *g*

Yes, 65 is freezing, dammit!

I think you'll get to like your progressives. I got sick of taking my glasses off so I could read fine print.

Good to hear our opinion is shared!

I think so; it's the getting used to looking down rather than up (and not having to drag it in REAL close).
