Revisiting childhood.......

I have to give props to Jess, she asked me to go to the above flic this Sunday morning (at 10:00am - so Jess's style) and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Of course I was the last one strolling in as Ali and Jess were waiting, seats already picked out and looking great on a Sunday morning at 10:00am, completely ready, make up and all - while I of course am in a hat, no make up and barely awake........
That aside it was a fantastic movie! 3-D and all....I have to give it props as well. As much as I was holding out on this "trend" it was really cool and I am sold. There are actually several more movies that were in the previews that I would love to see in 3-D that are upcoming this year. If you haven't seen this yet, then go. Since it is Pixar you will not be disappointed!

(See what I mean, look how polished they are....and then there's me. I need to get on the stick)

On another note I was thinking to myself about the Walt Disney "Logo" that comes up on all movies, and I was thinking about that damn castle. And I have to say it is very misleading when you are a little girl, you think that all of the fairies, princesses and queens reside there and they are awaiting for the princes to disappointing it is for a 5 year old, big blue -eyed little girl (me) to want nothing more than to see this castle at Disneyland, who soon finds out that it is just a walk-thru, that's right a bridge of sorts to the other side of the park. Nothing inside but cement and gallery windows to sell you the newest and "must haves" at the gift shops! Oh well, reality sucks - might as well learn the lesson early in life......there will always be reality but wouldn't it be nice to hold onto the Disney "dream".

See the movie!

Fried Potato.

(and no I am not talking about him, but he is pretty fried too)

That is all I have to say for what my state of mind is right now and in the last week. You see I have taken in a dog, and I not so coincidentally named him, Tator. He is a really sweet shitzu, but let's just say he is a little mental. Basically it was a friend of a friend of a friend email that found it's way to me and I couldn't let him go to Free To Live; his original owners gave him to another family and they decided not to keep him so he ended back up with me.

The only way I know how to paint a picture of his issues and demeanor as the days have gone, is that he has chewed through the metal crate that I was keeping him in during the day. Did I mention that he is only 14 pounds? So ya needless to say he has some things going on in that little noggin' of his.

Jess is standing by me, while the rest of the pack has called it quits and said I needed to find him another home, including Sam in his own doggie language - basically he keeps looking at me like "mom wtf?!". But I am not deterred; I am getting him neutered this Friday along with vaccines and hoping that may help his disposition some. I think it is safe to say that he was very neglected before he found his way to me, so I am hoping some TLC will do the trick as well. I am also hoping some TLC will do the PK some good as well and he will come back around to the "Tator Tot".

So that is the news on the home front.........fried potato and all.
