Movietime: Finally got to see Knocked Up yesterday and it’s just as hilarious as everyone says. The first real comedy I’ve seen in a long time. You know a movie is good when it’s been out for a few weeks and it’s still packed during a Saturday matinee. Even when it’s skin-meltingly hot here, like it is this weekend, it’s rare to see so many people at a 3 o’clock showing. There was a certain scene, though, where I felt like I was the only one laughing. Apparently I was the only geek (and person who has spent any amount of time listening to Howard Stern) in the theater.
After the movie, I came home and watched John Tucker Must Die while I worked around the house and finished the night with Flushed Away. The latter being much cuter and amusing than I had suspected. I was just watching it because I have had my current NetFlix discs for two weeks now and I want new ones but I really liked it. I guess there was a reason I put it in my queue.
Today I’m going to see Ocean’s Thirteen because apparently it’s a movie weekend for me.
Central Floridians: I don’t think there are any reading but I’ll share just in case. WFTV, our local ABC affiliate, will be holding one of ABC’s Red Carpet screenings on July 6th at the Lake Eola Park Amphitheater. They’ll be showing the pilot episodes of Pushing Daisies and Carpoolers. Here’s a link to more info but apparently there’ll be free food and even some special appearances by Dancing with the Stars folks (I’m gonna go out on a limb here and guess that it’ll be Joey). As I’m sure you can guess, I will be there. What kind of TV whore would I be if I missed it? (But, also, I can’t miss the chance to get a glimpse of Pushing Daisies!)
A Supernatural Question: Let’s say you were putting together a kind of Supernatural survival kit, what would you include? Like, if you could recreate what Dean and Sam carry around in their duffle bags. Rock salt, of course. Probably a lighter and/or matches. What else? Buffy would carry holy water and a cross but I’m not sure if these two do or not. I was also thinking some chalk for any impromptu pentagram drawings on floors and ceilings. Help! I know there are very obvious things that I’m missing.
