Hello dear readers,
Once again I find myself sprawled on my bed, propped up by pillows, staring blankly at the screen while I try to come up with something to write about. My day wasn’t very interesting, to tell you the truth, with a couple of exceptions. Fortunately, I have multimedia that will
deceive you all into thinking I wrote more than I did brighten your day and enhance your viewing experience.
Today dawned just less hot than McDonald’s coffee (I’m so topical), so rather than run around in the sun and look at birds again, Dad and I went to see Super 8 at our local Cine. Literally, the Cine. I wouldn’t ever truncate the word ‘cinema’ in such a cringe-inducing fashion frivolously. I can tell you with the utmost sincerity that it was a fantastic film. It relied a great deal on suspense for the creepy parts, which is the hallmark of a film that’s actually creepy, and it featured an incredible dynamic between all the actors that spoke of absolute faithfulness to real teenage interactions. It was thoroughly enjoyable, would see again. ++
It was after viewing the movie and stepping back out into the scalding soup that was the air, that I was informed that the weather authorities said that the actual record heat wave won’t be starting until tomorrow. Joy. To avoid severe calefaction, we decided to hop on into a few local (air-conditioned) stores. First up was Dick’s Sporting Goods, where a couple of interesting things were sighted.
There was also this amazing piece of technology.
Afterwards, we wandered over to a pet store, and I proceeded to toy with a really cute tortoise:
Seen elsewhere were the following:
So now I’m going to go to bed. HAH! Hardly any writing at all! I should just take videos of adorable tortoises every day and pass those off as blog posts!
