Been eating a lot of macaroni today, but mostly macaroni salad. That macaroni and cheese Mom made is just too rich to have more than one portion a day.
Nothing much has happened today. I went to see "Looney Tunes: Back In Action" with Mom. Ugh, the script was horrible! It is shameful to the name of Looney Tunes. A lot of the gags were pointless, the human acting was god-awful (Bugs and Daffy and the gang were great, though), and there were a lot of anti-climatic story points. Plus, as I've noticed to be a common trend in movies these days, they didn't take enough time to develop the setting. They basically cut right to the chase. Man, a lot of Hollywood writing sucks like hell these days. "LT: BIA" was like a badly written fanfic made into a movie. I honestly could have pulled a better script out of my @$$, because it was sh*t. Hell, it was less than sh*t, it was sub-sh*t. It did make me laugh quite a few times, but not very hard. I was laughing more about the little stuff. Like, there was this scene where Bugs and Daffy are in a spy car, falling down with the lead actor and actress, and they're in the back seat passing each other their wills. I don't recall laughing about anything the human actors did. I think I'm having second thoughts about seeing the Cat in the Hat. That got the worst reviews ever. Thing is, I wasn't so sure I believed the critics about the quality of the Looney Tunes movie, but now I'm starting to trust those guys a little more. So, no Suess for me. Poor Theo must be rolling in his grave... or curled up in a fetal position and weeping. I pick the latter.
You know what is a good movie, tho? "Elf." Like "LT: BIA," they don't take a lot of time developing the setting. In fact, in my honest opinion, the movie was a bit too short. But they did take more time than the Looney Tunes movie to develop the setting, plus the writing was quality for the time they had given it. I've seen funnier, really. But it's a very refreshing break from all the crap Hollywood's putting out.
I snuck a peek at a Christmas present Mom bought me at Target today: "Mario Kart Double Dash!!" WOO! I kinda wish I didn't look, but it's been on my Want List. I hope she also gets me "Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga." I really, really, really need that game. Mom also bought me a Christopher Hart drawing book I've wanted, from Barnes and Noble. I begged her for it and she said she wouldn't give it to me until Christmas, and I agreed to it.
I've been freakin' exhausted lately because I've been walking Jack so much. Mom had the same problem, but now she's used to it. She comes along when I walk Jack just for the exercise! She's nuts. I swear to God she's nuts. But that's what makes her such a great parent. ;)
Stepfather's been working all day today. Unless he's at the yacht club right now. It's raining like hell outside, so I really don't know. Eldest Aunt will be arriving at 8:00 PM, and I'm kinda anxious about that.
Anyway, I'm gonna post a link to this blog at my deviantART journal. I'll also try and update Flapping Terror tonight. I've been really bad about that. *slaps wrist*
