Planes, Trains and Automobiles

So, I took a little trip this past week. It was absolutely awesome. I haven’t had a real vacation in about four or five years, so it was much needed. My trip involved a 13 hour train ride to upstate NY, a family reunion, Megabus down to the City, a train ride out to Montauk, and finally a train and plane back to Chi-town. 22 hours of traveling right there people!  I wont bore you with all the details of a family reunion where my Dad’s side of the family has 11 kids and over 30 grandkids, and currently 3 great-grandkids with another on the way. But it was fun in that sorta “Why aren’t you married and having kids of your own Jami?” kind of way. Once I left the reunion to bus it down to NYC, I enjoyed some nerd related activities. Here are a few of my nerd highlights. (above picture taken by Sara H.)

Super Investigator

Brandon Routh (Superman, “Chuck”) plays Dylan Dog, a private investigator of all things supernatural, comes to the big screen this month in Dylan Dog: Dead of Night. This movie is based on a comic book series Dylan Dog (betcha never saw that one coming). The movie also stars Taye Diggs as, what I’m guess to be, the main antagonist, a vampire. That man is sooo fine!!  Yum. Gonna have to watch it just for that. [via Action Flick Chick]

Amy Adams is Lois Lane

Amy Adams will be Lois Lane in the new (uber real) Superman movie. After seeing “The Fighter” (with Mark Wahlburg) last weekend, I think she can actually pull off a decent Lois. I LOVED her in “The Fighter” (which, if you have not seen it, go rent it from Redbox, definitely worth the $1.08). I especially loved the normalized weight and belly she had,  which, of course, is gone now. [via]
