I Heart Penguins

Jenny Two Times told me that instead of saying, "I'm broke." I should say, "I'm awaiting financial abundance." Then she treated me to sushi and a movie. What a pal! (Thanks Jen!)

All throughout March of the Penguin I was making up dialogue for the "characters." Completely inappropriately, I was thinking it would be good comic relief during the second blizzard scene where they are all huddled together for warmth if one penguin had cried out, "Who farted?!"

I have trouble with the whole "suspension of disbelief" thingie. I sit in the theater thinking, "Huh, I wonder when they go the bathroom?" If the darn penguins could just it together to mate closer to the water there might not be as many casualties. No one likes to see a dead baby penguin. No one. I know this is wishful thinking. The penguins aren't going to rewrite their genetic make up or unlearn the vast history of their species to shack up at an waterfront bungalow nor are they going to invent some sort of "pass the egg" contraption. But if they did, they might be rich!

Can you tell it is late and I am not quite myself?

I blame the paint fumes and my aching right shoulder. I also blame Adrian Zmed. Why? Think Grease 2 or TJ Hooker and then just chalk it up to an inside joke.

I am going to bed. I'm so glad I am not a penguin.

yes... you are not a penguin.

and neither am I.

But sometimes doesn't it seem it would be easier to find a mate if you WERE a penguin?

I think this sometimes...

How funny.

I want to see this movie SO BAD, but every time it's time to corral people to go check it out there's moans of "Oh, a movie about penguins?" But seriously, it's awesome isn't it?

People keep telling me about how the little penguins have to stand on their parents toes or they'll fall off, freeze to death, and die.

Ok, I can't believe I just wrote that.

i've read many blog posts ragging on many different people and things, but this is the first time I've read someone critizing... penguins! They are kind of stuck up, aren't they? Always dressed up...

you and my son should have seen Penguins together, 'cause he spent the whole movie making up those side comments and i spent the whole movie shushing him while secretly laughing.

I *loved* the movie, even though Sizzle yawned the whole time... (teasing). Maybe it was too much Sake before the movie?
