One of my favorite movies of all time, probably second only to "Resident Evil" is "The 13th Warrior." It's one of those movies I have to watch at least once a year.
If you haven't seen it, it's the story of Ahmed ibn Fahdlan, a soft and spoiled Arab poet who is banished from his home by the Sultan and made an emissary to the wild men of the north; the vikings.
He goes on a quest with twelve vikings to rid the land of a great evil and Ahmed learns to be a warrior in the process.
After his first battle ever they find him knocked cold on the floor and one of the vikings remarks "Well, he didn't run!"
The same thing can be said about The Kid. He saw a fight in his wing and he called it on the radio and actually stayed put and pepper sprayed both fighters. And he didn't run.
I have to give him kudos for that. He didn't run.
I heard a rumor that he didn't because Sgt Moon was standing in between him and the exit, but that's unconfirmed.
Hopefully this new found courage doesn't go to his head.
I had some other things to say but I think I'll just shut up now and give you the lineup for the weekend before I get myself into trouble.
Saturday: Hermit Day, Internet Day, National Cat Day, National Forgiveness Day and Visit A Cemetery Day. Don't think I'm ready for that, just yet.
Sunday: National Candy Corn Day (Yay! Candy corn! Yum!), Checklist Day and Haunted Refrigerator Day. Really?
Monday: Halloween, of course. As well as National Magic Day and Increase Your Psychic Powers Day, Beggars Night, National Knock-Knock Jokes Day and Samhain. Man! Don't you just love Wikipedia?
