Tomorrow is finally Friday and I only have a half day of work because I’m off to New Hampshire to forgo 50 degrees of sunny weather at home and instead head to the snow and the cold – my favorite. But I’ll do anything for a massive party so I’m going. Anyway, in honor of this being the longest week of all time, I’d like to share some highlights.
Beauty and the Beast 3D
I still live for Disney movies so I don’t care if anyone thinks it’s dumb to pay $15 to go see a movie you’ve had on VHS for 14 years, I’m still going to go. I went to see The Lion King this summer and last night I saw Beauty and the Beast. It’s not the 3D that impresses me because I actually think 3D sucks – it hurts my eyes. But no matter how old I get, Disney classics still remain some of the best movies out there.
Beauty and the Beast, for instance, obviously teaches kids that beauty is on the inside, which is a nice lesson, but it’s also a prime example of why Disney princesses are the best. They are all strong-willed and independent (except maybe Snow White who is stupid and lives with squirrels) but they are still classic romantic heroins. I hate all these new Pixar girls always belching and being gross. Also, I never realized how funny some of the songs are. “New and a bit alarming” – you should be alarmed, Belle. You are falling in love with a nasty animal. Also, Miss Celine is on the soundtrack.
But I still cannot wait for Little Mermaid to be re-released. That movie was my biggest childhood joy and seeing it in theaters again may just be the highlight of my adult life.
Cannibal in CT
I was trying to enjoy a chocolate croissant yesterday when I got the news that a local man had been arrested for killing and eating a homeless guy. He hacked poor Tun Tun up and then ate his eyes and part of his brain after telling his cousin he had a “lust for blood.”
“‘He said he had gotten a rare steak at a restaurant in Florida and when he had tasted the blood it had given him a sexual sensation,’ recalled Nicole Rabb, who helped police get a confession from Smith to the crime.” – CT Post
If this isn’t the most disgusting thing you have heard in a while, then I’d rather not know you. I still ate my croissant, though – I was in New Canaan so it cost me $5 and also it was delicious.
To my surprise and dismay, it turns out idiots who eat nothing but chicken McNuggets for 15 years straight are not healthy. Has anyone reported this girl’s parents for child neglect and trashbag-ness? Who lets their kid survive on something that only in recent years has boasted being “all white meat,” and probably never actually claimed to be “all chicken meat”?
