A weekend of Wolverine


The Sparky and I spent this weekend refamiliarising ourselves with the X-Men franchise.

We made our way through X-Men: First Class, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men ... with the rest to follow during the week.

I may have been sidetracked during Wolverine by these ugly but delicious muffins.

Inspired by Lisa's here except I didn't have any apple in the house so used a pear instead.


Aside from being taken aback when we realised that X-Men was released in 2000 (!?!) we had a bit of light fun ... really lines like "Do you know what happens to a toad when it's struck by lightning? ... The same thing that happens to everything else" aren't written for taking seriously, are they?

  2. I don't think I've seen First Class or the Wolverine origins movie, but I do love X-Men and X2. Makes me want to see the new one!

    1. That's what we're preparing ourselves for ... hopefully it's as good as it looks. Should be a bit of fun at the very least.

    1. Oh, they were spread out over the weekend, not all in a row. I suppose that's still a lot compared to what you would get with a toddler around the house :)

    1. Lorraine, you uncouth, uncultured being ... ;)

      Honestly, these movies really do come down to personal preference, I certainly wouldn't be telling anyone to put them on their 'must see' list but they are a bit of light fun.
