Dark Knight Rises

Here is something you should know about me. Well, not about me, but about Fiance. And now, I guess, about us.

Fiance is a BATMAN FAN.

I don't think you understand. He's a BATFAN. He's also a GOOD MOVIE fan (like, Academy Award winners, etc.). So naturally, he LOVES the Nolan Batman trilogy. We started dating in 2009 and I remember him talking about the final Nolan Batman BACK THEN.

When we went to Vegas in July 2010, I remember him saying, "Two years until Dark Knight Rises!". Since then, we've been WAITING for the final film to be released. We watched trailers. We followed casting. We cheered when Bane was decided as the villain. We were worried (a little) when Anne Hathaway was cast as Catwoman. We counted down eagerly until July 2012, which felt DECADES away.

And now... it's here.


It's amazing how much time can pass in three years. Since 2009, when Fiance first started talking about Batman, we started dating, we moved in together, we got a puppy (who wasn't even ALIVE when Nolan started planning his movie), we went to Vegas THREE times, we fell in love, we got engaged, we moved five times, we started planning our wedding, and we gained and lost 60 lbs combined. CRAZY how time goes!

And somewhere in the past three years, I became a Batfan, too. The other day, someone mentioned something about Robin, and I literally popped into the conversation to ask if they meant Tim Drake, Jason Todd, or Dick Grayson. How did this happen? By dating a BATFAN. I started thinking about the philosophical push and pull of good vs. evil in Batman and Joker. I started realizing that Batman is just as crazy as the Joker is because he can't bring himself to kill someone. I also realized that WAY too many people (especially pretty women) know Bruce's secret.

Ah, Batman.

Also, I think you should look at this video which is HILARIOUS. Don't click out of the video until the VERY end when SuperMario gets into a "Batman Voice" contest with Batman. HILARIOUS!
