Looking Forward to Leisure

When the school year is over, I am hoping to get less calls after 9:00 p.m. from stressed out teachers. I'm hoping to survive the play offs, take a vacation, and see movies.

I'm still not sure whether I want to support Tom Cruise's craziness and see MI-III in the theater or not. I read that he did promo work for the movie in Aberdeen, WA, an economically depressed logging town miles away from anywhere. My mom used to live 20 miles from Aberdeen on the coast of Washington. When staying with my mom, I'd go "into town" in Aberdeen. I saw Total Recall at its now defunct drive-in theater, and my only Wal-Mart purchases have been in that town.

Why would Tom Cruise choose Aberdeen,WA to promote his movie? That's where Kurt Cobain was from, right?

Hope you are well...Sorry to hear that you are so busy.

Miss you.

Yes, the Aberdeenians were all very excited, apparently they Love ole Tom there. Katie was there, too & everyone really appreciated them stopping by on their way to making another 100 million.

Hope your summer is warm & relaxing.

Pac'a loves the northwest, would eat placenta herself given the chance, and misses her ninabit terribly.

You forgot to mention that your sister-in-law was born and raised in Aberdeen and that your younger brother went to college there!

In response to rv3's question, an Aberdeen resident won a promotional contest to see the movie with Cruise. What's weird is that a similar contest brought the band Metallica to Aberdeen as well (in ’98, I think). They played at a dirty little bar across the street from Denny's.

That reminds me of the time that Prince and the Revolution showed up to rock some dazed looking lady in Sheridan, Wyoming.

I was surprised to find out Tom Cruise became a Scientologist because of his first wife, Mimi Rogers and that was years afterwards at that....

I remember seeing Total Recall at that drive-in! in the 1876 subaru, with one of your Evergreen admirers? Arnold career has really taken a dive since his work with Paul Verhooven.
