Okay, so I’m totally stuffed up since yesterday, but otherwise I feel fine, so it must be allergies. Which makes sense, since in the last week or so everything has started blooming here: daffodils, pear trees, all sorts of purty bushes and the like. Meanwhile, I’m walking around clutching a Kleenex and moaning. But whatever.
Yesterday was long and exhausting (and sniffly) but the night before we went to see Starsky and Hutch , which was just fluffy and fun and fabulous. I wasn’t a big fan of the show when it was on (and yes, I AM old enough to remember those ancient times) but the remake was just silly and enjoyable. By this time Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller have a total routine going, and a lot of the same people show up in this that did in Zoolander (Will Ferrell, etc) and there’s also a few things that will remind you of Old School (which was with the OTHER Wilson brother, but whatever). All in all, though, I found myself laughing out loud entirely too much at this movie. Most of it was because of Ben Stiller, who is just so ridiculous in his 70’s perm and intense expressions. I don’t know what it is, but I LOVE him. I also loved the fact that my husband insisted we get a large popcorn with butter, which I ate and ate until I had a popcorn hangover, but it was so worth it. It’s been a good long while since I’ve been to the movies…there just hasn’t been anything GOOD out lately. Hopefully as Spring gets closer, we’ll have more options. I always love an excuse for popcorn.
In other news, I have officially roped my husband into watching America’s Next Top Model with me, something I should be ashamed of, as it is the End of Civilization As We Know It, but am actually happy about because we’re down to three girls now and this is just a show you have to have someone to make catty comments with as you watch. We were shocked, SHOCKED, by the outcome last night. (SPOILER ALERT!) I thought for sure Mercedes would go. I thought it would be Shandi and April, all the way to the end. But no! Drama! Intrigue! —-
Hold on, I have to sneeze—–okay.
—-Excitment! Suspense! The next show is the finale. What will happen? Who will win? Why do I care? (That’s really the main question.) Maybe I’ll ponder it as I go look for more Kleenex…
have a good day everyone!
