This weekend is the Smaller Animal’s birthday weekend, so there’s not much time for blogging pursuits. The only movie out right now that he wants to see is Early Man, which is the latest Aardman effort. Unfortunately, it seems that the big splash of A Wrinkle in Time has pushed the smaller movie out into the fringes, and almost every place still playing the film in our area is a) not really in our area, meaning it’s a half-an-hour drive or more away, and b) at remarkably silly times, like 9AM. Who is really getting up at 7AM to go watch a movie? Literally the only place playing Early Man in the Los Angeles area any time after noon is the theater in the tourist-trap shopping cluster outside Universal Studios, and we simply didn’t have the time to take out the second mortgage necessary to be able to afford that. So we just ended up renting Coco from Amazon. I actually didn’t want to like that movie—
Food-wise, we’ve done Panda Express and Subway so far (specifically, lots of orange chicken and meatball subs). Oh, and birthday donuts. Still KFC to come for dinner tonight. Gift-wise, there’s a number of videogames, of course, and some Pokémon crystal things to go on some wristband thingy. I don’t know; I’m old.
Anyway, that’s all you get from me this week. Tune in next week for a longer discussion about ... well, whatever I find to meander on about, I suppose.
* Okay, maybe Planes.
