Chicken Little & Lost

I took the short kid to the movies yesterday. We have a Smitty’s, which is a movie theatre with tables and waitstaff and such so you get to eat in the dark while having your hearing destroyed. But one of the preschool moms sets up lunch/movie dates for the kids—if she gets enough people, they’ll open a theatre and provide pizza and soda. It’s pretty cool, actually. So we all trooped in yesterday to see Chicken Little, and I brought the short kid, the neighbor’s short kid and a pre-birthday cake.

The movie was…odd. While I did laugh pretty often, the basic cartoon storyline was well suited for the 4-5 year olds in the audience. The aliens, however, were intense. The neighbor’s short kid spent most of the movie on my lap with his hands over his ears, and during the attack (very intense, in a War of the Worlds way) my short kid wanted up, too. So it seems too young for the older kids, and too scary for the younger kids. It tried to redeem itself at the end when it reveals the true aliens inside the robots, but we moms already bore the fingernail marks climbing up our legs.


I didn’t think I’d like last night’s episode, recapping what’s been happening with a bunch of people I didn’t think they should have introduced in the first place. And Anna Lucia seemed just a wee bit over the top to me. But I found myself sucked into it, just as was when I got annoyed that they opened the hatch. Now I’m hoping that once they integrate with the other survivors, they’ll start getting flashback histories of their own. I want to know what they did before they got on the plane. And I’m dying to see Anna Lucia and Sayid go at it, as long as Sayid wins.

The way he says the name Shannon makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :nookie:

    Thanks for the info on Chicken Little. Surprised you even watched it. :neener:

    As for Lost, I agree. We raced home from dinner to watch it and well, at first I was like, this is boring. Who cares. :snore: But if figured out Goodwin BEFORE the Morkster. Which isa first. I too, want to know what Anna Lucia did before the whole plane crash. And who ‘The Others’ are. I wonder if they were Peace Corps. Freaked me out when Anna Lucia woke up and Goodwin was laying beside her watching her. And that Nathan had some potential. He was kinda cute.

    Sayid is most definitely hubba hubba. :love: Don’t even get me started about Shannon. :rant: As if killing off gorgeous-to-die-for-blue-eyed-Boone wasn’t enough!:cry:

    Just as long as ‘dimples’ isn’t next. They’re going to build one helluva triangle aren’t they?

    Anyone want to write a bio for me? :hide:

    Not only are you in a TV show, but you shot Shannon!

    :doh: That’s where that search engine hit came from. I knew it was my name plus Anna Lucia being on the sidebar, but I couldn’t figure out why somebody was searching for her shooting me. SOMEbody was trying to verify some spoilers, methinks. :nod:

    I didn’t find Boone attractive. Dunno why, but I don’t find Sawyer all that hot, either. Or Charlie.

    I’d do Locke, though. Besides Sayid, of course.

    And I had to write my own bio, today, Rae. :neener: Wait til you have to do newsletter crap.

    :baby:Newsletter? Newsletter?:hide:

    You do realize I am NEVER coming back out from under this chair, right?
