I'm kind of not sure what I've gotten myself into based on this tweet:

I'm not seeing Thor this weekend because I fear older biddies sitting behind me making creepy comments about 3D muscles. #shudder
I immediately became paranoid that I might actually BE an "older biddie" so I inquired further about this anxiety. Len informed that he had a bad experience in a movie with centaurs. They elicited crude remarks. I thought about it for a moment and couldn't come up with anything crude to say about a centaur. Maybe he just happened to go to a showing at the same time as the Catherine the Great fan club. I think in fact the Czarina's demise was more like Elvis. There was a toilet involved, but no horse.
This actually sounds pertinent to a news story I read today when I got home from an outing. On this outing I stopped at Starbucks on my way to go hiking. The pollen was bad so I went through a lot of Kleenex. I'm lucky I survived!
According to the Guardian they linked sudden blood pressure rise to burst blood vessels in the brain. Straining on the toilet was the fifth highest risk. Poor Catherine.
