An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 11 July 2010
Ick, Brat, Short Person and I went to see Toy Story 3 yesterday evening. We were suppose to go earlier in the day, but one of their beyond stupid dogs decided to go under the house, and wouldn’t come out. This wouldn’t be a problem if there weren’t a large number of cotton mouths running rampant from the creek back yonder. When it rains hard, like it did this past week, they like to check out the rest of the yard, and have been known to get under the house. Well, they were worried Stupid Dog #3 would get bit, and none of us can afford another $600 vet bill.
I did, however manage to make it to the mall and purchase my essential items….”Buy 2, Get 2 free!” So, now, I have FOUR essential items! Naturally, while in the store, Brat put out the boo boo lip over a sun dress. Wasn’t gonna do it, but Ick had it in his hands, I’m thinking to purchase it for her….cuz he falls for that lip every time, and being the sucker I am, I took it away from him and put it with my pile of essentials. It was $10 off. Big deal. Could have found the same type dress at Wally World for MUCH less.
Reviewing movies isn’t typically what I do, but in this case…. While Rotten Tomatoes gave Toy Story 3 a 99%, for the life of me, I can’t figure out why. Oh, it had some good moments, but overall? I’d give it a 60. Ick enjoyed it immensely, and I’m guessing Short Person did, even though she never really said. Brat and I weren’t all that impressed. The first one was definitely the best! Was it really 1995?? Dang! This one? That’s 90 minutes of my life I’ll never get back, and could have waited till it came on the Disney Channel. Maybe I’m just too “old” to appreciate the finer points of the movie? ………………………..Pfft! At least the food was decent.
