PotC 2: Dead Man's Chest (2006) [2007-05-23]

I'm reluctant to see movies in theatres, and I heard such mixed things about PotC 2 (as well as that it ended with a total set-up for the third movie), so I opted to wait for it to come out on video. After Thanksgiving I put in an ILL request. It still hasn't arrived. So when Trelawney sent out an invite to see Pirates 3, I broke down and bought a copy at Newbury Comics. I do really like getting to talk about stuff with people, and I'd heard good things about the third movie, so it seemed worth it. (I mentioned to Trelawney on our drive to the theater that I had seen Pirates 2 for the first time last week when I bought it, and she was surprised that I hadn't just rented it. Honestly, that option hadn't even occurred to me so foreign is to my way of functioning. What I said was that I didn't even know where a nearby video rental place was, so I would have to track one down and go and get a membership, so it was worth it to me to just pick up a copy from a place I walk by every day.)

Remember when I dropped an iron on my hand back in March?  I don't think the scar is going away, which since it's on the back of my right hand bothers me a lot.  I'm flirting with the idea of getting a tattoo over it, though I don't even know how well that would work and it is of course a problematic idea given the professional environment I work in.  Were I to get one, I am enamoured of the idea of a line of flames.
