Rollin', rollin', rollin' - GAR Day #8

Magnet #91 - Arizona

So I spent a good 10 minutes scouring my magnet boards because I couldn't find an Arizona magnet for the first of the two-day segment. Quelle horreur! Then, complete with a spotlight and a chorus of angels - at eye level, natch - was this jobbie.

Haven't a clue where it came from, but thank you to whomever gave it to me.

Today we're driving around New Mexico and Arizona. New Mexico for the Gila Cliff Dwellings - almost the Anasazi stuff of X-File lore, but not quite. And then a few ghost towns...where I pictured the four of us GAR roadtrippers as the Scooby gang, solving a mystery wherein the weird guy who owned the dilapidated inn was wearing a ghost costume to keep people from visiting (because there's a big secret hidden in the ghost town, of course), complete with glowing footprints and explanatory denouement. Hahahaha. Any. Way.

So, the rest of the day was to be Tombstone - dangit, I even re-watched Tombstone so that I'd be able to tell folks that the gunfight didn't really take place at the O.K. Corral, but down the street.

Well, it's not like I really liked the movie anyway. Val Kilmer was just too scary lookin' for my taste. Though, oddly, Kurt Russell and Sam Elliott were pretty compelling.

GAR Track of the Day: Rawhide. Again, probably just would have been belting it out. Oh, who needs a radio or cd player. Heh. b13 may have been right, the singing might have posed a problem.

Success! The great
Doctor Who magnetwatch is complete! Received the magnet set day too late to be my Roswell entry, but can't wait for June!

Pin It!

Joy, you get major points for referencing the X-Files storyline that involved them, but you misspelled their name! Anasazi, not Anazasi. That was an awesome time for The X-Files. Totally classic bunch of episodes.

Can't wait for the new movie... I hope it's decent!

Duly noted and fixed, GG. Those were a good bunch of eppys.

We saw the Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz panel at ComicCon, and I pretty much think this movie's gonna rock. Well, at the very least, it HAS to be better than Indy4.

GoldenGait said...

Yeah, but being better than Indy 4 would not be hard. I could do an interpretive dance to a Blue Oyster Cult song wearing a chicken suit and it would be more entertaining than Indy 4.

Actually, I bet that would be hysterical. Maybe I need to set this in motion...

*SO* jealous you got to go to ComicCon...
