The boy's idea of a joke

"I've got a present for you", said the boy, getting up from his chair. Usually when he says that, it means one of two things:

1. a cake, or
2. a DVD.

He seemed to be heading for the fridge, so I tried to guess whether he'd got me an apple slice, a cheesecake, a chocolate-iced banana cake or...something else.
Then he abruptly changed direction and headed towards the DVD shelves.

Ooh, I hoped that it was Project Runway Season Two!

But no. It was "The Librarian". The trilogy. I'd heard of the first one; it was released during the time I was studying to be a librarian (and failed - TLM was conceived). It sounded awful and I had no idea they'd made two sequels.

So, the boy's reasoning is that we will enjoy the movies because:

1. I used to be a librarian-in-training, and
2. he'd heard they were pretty bad in a good way.

We shall see...we shall see.

Ha! I saw commercials last year for the third movie and was promptly banned from them by my husband. Exceeded the cheese criteria, apparently. LOL

Isn't Thomas Gibson The Librarian?
Never saw them but he's not the worst actor out there.

antoinette: yeah, and so tongue-in-cheek it might make you gag! Actually the first one was okay, just very very very cheesy.

nigel: nah it was Noah Wyle, who was in ER for years and years.

If the Chairman likes super-cheesiness then - oh yes!
