Batman and Robb

This morning, just before my alarm went off, I was dreaming that I was somehow involved with Batman, who was recovering from a terribly serious injury. Hmmmm... Let's ponder the connections between the cimematic version of Batman and Robb.

Custom-fitted body armor -- check

Brooding, romantic super hero -- hmmmm....

The Mask -- we often joke that Mister Firdusi looks like a little kid in a Batman costume, whose mask has slipped

Cape -- Robb hasn't been wearing a cape lately, but we've been watching the Lord of the Rings movies, and the hobbits do wear capes. Robb's feet are looking oddly hobbit-like these days.

Utility Belt -- anyone who knows Robb well knows he fashions all sorts of custom made tools

Lives in a Cave -- I'm not really keeping up with the housework, but it isn't that bad, either

Butler, Mansion, Snazzy Vehicles -- alas, no

Involved with a mentally unhinged woman with too many cats -- no comment

I was pondering all of this, when Robb rolled over and said, "I dreamt that I went with my family to a catholic mass that had an Andy Warhol theme, and my parents enthusiastically dug out all these boxes of products marketed under the Andy Warhol label, and we all wore our psychedelic nineteen-sixties coats to the mass."

(And doesn't this image make you love the internet? Type and Batman and Andy Warhol into a search engine, and you'll be handsomely rewarded.)

Actually I believe in one of the series Batman breaks his back and is in this funky brace thing...so you aren't totally crazy. Not totally.

The Prayer of St. Francis
BE AT PEACE
Do not look forward in fear in the changes of life; rather look to them with full hope as they arise. God, whose very own you are, will deliver you from out of them. He has kept you hitherto, and He will lead you safely through all things, and when you cannot stand it, God will bury you in HIS arms. Do not fear what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you then and everyday. He will either shield you from suffering, or will give you unfailing strength to bear it. BE AT PEACE, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations. Love You, Mom
