My Dirty Little Secret

My name is Allison and I am an action adventure movie addict! There I said it. Whew, that feels good! I feel like I should start a support group or something. I went to see The Avengers for Mother's Day. It was the only gift I wanted. I love, love, love this genre of movies! The Avengers and other movies of the like get my adrenaline pumping like nothing else. Not only do they drape the inner space of my mind on a regular basis, they also live on my computer screen, my desk at work and clothes. My favorite t-shirt is my husband's Captain America shirt. My kids and I will fight to the death to see who gets to wear it (ok not really but it comes close).

Needless to say, The Avengers far exceeded my expectations. The way the producers and writers combined the action with the humor was remarkable. I had never seen it done so well in a movie before. More than that, the portrayal of relationships between the heroes was powerful. The tension, the underlying emotions, the valiant team effort in spite of feelings and circumstances; simply brilliant!

Thanks Marvel Comics for effortlessly bringing me into the world of my boys! I shall never return to princesses and castles!

What about you? What is the one thing that most people don't know about you? What is your dirty (rated pg please) little secret?

I laughed out loud! Now I want to see that Captain America shirt! I'm so glad you have a disclaimer on your blog so that no one will blame Seacoast for your addiction. As a mom of boys, I'm there with you. I am always rooting to watch Iron Man (the teen series) over anything girly. It's a gift for sure.

You are not alone. I wanted to see the movie just to hear him say "We have a Hulk!" My kids think I'm nuts. I'd prefer to think of it as a kid at heart. :o)

It's true! Boys are a precious gift and I am glad to hear that I am not the only mama that loves these just as much as my boys

Hhhmm. I have a lot of dirty little secrets. It's quite possible I have some that even I don't know about. I'm sure God could give you a long list of mine.

BUT, in regard to movies, one of my secrets it that I really prefer to watch them alone, in my living room, when no one else is home.

How fun. I love these kinds of movies too. For Mother's Day, my husband rented Mission Impossible 3. Perfect for me. :)

I'm going to She Speaks too! Hope to meet you there!
