? I joined avatar_icons
and found that icon that we were giggling over so much last night *points to icon for this entry* See? HAPPY!! :D
Soooooo...how 'bout those Colts? I'm one of those people who watches the Superbowl for the commercials ^^;; But there really weren't any good ones this year, which made me very sad. There were two that stick out as especially funny in my mind, but that's it. The two were the Blockbuster one with the mouse, and the Budweiser one with the wedding and the auctioneer. But nothing as good as last year's "magic beer fridge." That one was just love. Still, was a damn good game, though--and I don't really care about football, either.
Last night, I went with Mommy and Daddy to this silent film thing at the Orpheum. And msbbt
was there with her Mommy (who I do call Mom, because I can remember when she was our Brownie troop leader--we go waaaaay back, her and I ^_^), so we got to sit together. The movie was called Safety Last.
Wonderful, wonderful movie...except I'm one of those people who gets embarrassed for the characters on screen, so I was kinda twitching for a good part of the movie ^^;;
But if you've ever seen a documentary or anything about silent movies or old movies, and they show a clip of a guy hanging from a clock-face at the top of a building? That's from this movie. The most amazing part of it is that he was actually climbing a building...with only eight fingers. See, the actor (Harold Lloyd) had once been handed what they thought was a prop bomb. Turned out it was real, and it exploded and blew off two of his fingers--this thumb and forefinger. Well, he got himself patched up after spending a YEAR in the hospital, and went back to making movies.
So yeah...this guy climbed up a freakin' building with five fingers on one hand and THREE fingers on the other. And he was doing some dangerous stuff, too--msbbt
and I were clinging to each other at one point because we knew it would be okay, but still...yikes o.O The subject line of this entry is a reference to the movie :D
Then we talked our parents into taking us to Perkin's for ice cream. The parents talked about grown-up things, and msbbt
and I sat and fangirled about Avatar for forty-five minutes. Talk about your great evenings :D
And then I crawled into bed around eleven, after pretty much everyone seemed determined to run me off the internet (I'm looking at you, magic_truth
. I'm pretty sure I was out like a light and didn't move until eight-thirty this morning, when I woke up hacking. I hate having colds and sore throats...they are blechy D:
Tomorrow, I can sleep a little bit later, too--instead of going to school, I'm going to see the high schoolers in an honor choir. I'm still driving an hour, but instead of being there at eight AM, I'm supposed to meet my coop at a quarter to nine. Translation: I have an extra forty-five minutes! WHOO!! *resets alarm for lovely sleeping*
