Had the opportunity to see Wreck-It-Ralph tonight. And while I can't say it will likely be among those I've gotten all fandom-y about, it really was adorable.

And there was something else about it, too . . . Some familiar appeal . . . I can't quite put my finger on it, but . . .

No, wait! I've got it! ;)

She's terse - I can be terse. Once, in flight school, I was laconic. )



Yep. I knew there was something familiar about it! :D

Movie night with my brother. His pick this time? Hobo with a Shotgun.

Huh.

Yeah, pretty much what it says.

"This is a suicide pact! These kids are comin' out here and they're killin' themselves all over the woods!"





Oh, Alan! Is everything you do so made of Awesome?

The Stupid. It burns.

California woman sues Quaker Cereal for misleading consumers into thinking that "Cap'n Crunch Crunch Berries" is made with real fruit.

Seriously? A person is willing to admit to being *that* gullible? I mean just look at the box!

As if that wasn't bad enough, the woman claimed to have been misled . . . for four years!! So she had spent years eating the stuff! (Even a person making up a lawsuit hoping for a big payoff has to realize what kind of idiot this claim makes them look like!)

Then, even worse, add in the fact that "Crunch Berries" in general have been on the shelves for over 40 years! Which means, in nearly half a century, no one else has made this mistake.

The woman clearly has bigger problems than what is in her cereal.

Best quote by the judge who threw the case out: "As far as this court has been been made aware, there is no such fruit (as Crunch Berries) growing in the wild or occurring naturally in any part of the world."

*shudders at the stupid*

The Good
- I love my new solid shampoos from Lush. They make my hair smell so pretty!

- The first weekend of '09 and I have 10 miles under my belt. (It's a marathon year again!)

- I have leftover Thai for lunch tomorrow.

- I'm greatly enjoying the book I'm currently reading. (Too bad the time I have to read it is about to be drastically reduced!)

- I received a few submissions for [livejournal.com profile] tardos_treasure. Very few, but still - it's a start! When I get a few more, I'll get a master list of nominees up and running.

The Bad

- I have to go back to work tomorrow. (Yeah, that pretty much tops it.)

- Do I even remember what I was working on with my students?

The Whiny (Or is it "wine-y?")

- Someone opened a bottle of wine that I had been saving, and now it's nearly gone.

Scranton was listed as a runner-up in PA behind Pittsburgh in Business Week's "Best Places to Raise Kids" study.

Not bad for a place that's often counted out as a dying coal town (or, occasionally, a "hellhole"). *G*

Is anybody else getting, like, zero sound from anything on YouTube right now?

It was working fine a few minutes ago, and now everything I click on has no sound. (And it's not my computer, or other video sites; I checked.)

Weird.

Many of you may have seen this already, but . . . it's kind of like watching a train wreck.

Simply can't turn away from the epic, epic fail!

I hate bumper stickers to begin with. Sure, some of them have clever quotes on them, but that doesn't mean I actually want them anywhere *near* my car.

Then, on my way home today, I pulled up behind this gem at a stop light:

My kid got your
honor student PREGNANT!


Seriously? See, to me that's neither clever nor remotely funny. That's just brainless.

*headdesk*

Well, we're all still here, which is good.

But apparently the experiment is ongoing, so don't forget to check in periodically and see if the Large Hadron Collider has destroyed the world yet.
