------ Welcome to RTMemo ------

Okay, forget the Star Wars toys that came out last week... this week the Spider-Man movie opens in theaters! Well, maybe don't forget them exactly, but now that they are purchased, ripped open, and sprawled out across your desk, the Spidey movie is something new to anticipate. Has anyone else tried the Spidey Pop-Tarts yet? Sugary goodness without the eyebrow-raising looks you get when eating the Jar Jar Tongue Candy.
