I love disaster and apocalypse movies. I remember being young and watching Airport, The Poseidon Adventure, Towering Inferno, all those wonderfully cheesy Irwin Allen movies, on TV and being completely enthralled. And still love the newer ones: The Day After Tomorrow, Deep Impact, Knowing. I love disaster/apocalypse SF books, too. Lucifer's Hammer is still one of my favorite SF books. And of course, The Stand, which is my absolute favorite book of all time.

So I'm really looking forward to going to see 2012 tonight.

Yeah, I've heard it's got that cheesy Irwin Allen feel to it. But you know what, that's just fine with me. I think part of the appeal for me is measuring myself against the situation. What would I do, would I be able to survive in the same circumstances? The only thing that I don't like in these kinds of movies anymore is when a parent has to watch their child die. Being a parent, that gets me, and will be an instant turn off, and will leave me disturbed for days. I want to hope that if I were ever tested in that way, I would be able to save myself AND my kids, or die trying.

Well, tonight, I'm going to see if the Boog will share my love of these types of movies. E would, of course, totally freak, so he will be staying home with Himself. But Boog will be coming with me and M to see 2012. When I asked him, and explained what the movie was about, Boog started singing the R.E.M. song! Too funny.

Hopefully, none of us will be disappointed.
