My kids have been watching hours and hours of “Rocky & Bullwinkle” this summer, and I couldn’t be prouder.
By far my favorite segment is Mr. Peabody and Sherman, where the world’s smartest dog takes his affable boy Sherman on trips back through time in his WABAC Machine (Wayback) to see improbable events in history. I guess I love the Fractured Fairy Tales, too. And Boris and Natasha. Okay, well, all of it. It’s hilarious. Where did they get that awesome narrator, I ask you?
Well, allow me to take readers of this blog on a little trip down memory lane by use of the wayback machine and introduce you to my cell phone.
It’s not a bad little phone. I’ve had it for years and years, and it costs me about $5 a month to use it. I just recharge its minutes once a year, and I’m set. It sends and recieves phone calls and texts. Not a “Smartie Phone” (as Dan calls them on “The Good Guys“) but it works fine, and you can’t shake a stick at the price.
On Saturday I was walking through WalMart, and somehow it synched with someone else’s phone. Or got infected. Or possessed. It now thinks it only speaks Spanish and wants to receive a lot of texts for someone called Amber. I don’t speak Spanish, or read it much, so I can’t figure out how to teach it English again.
Anyway, to soothe my pain, I guess I’ll plunk down and watch an episode of Rocky and Bullwinkle with the kids. Did you hear they’re doing a Mr. Peabody and Sherman movie? It supposedly comes out in Fall of 2013! Very fun.
Which reminds me, I got a fab review of BIG IN JAPAN on Amazon. I totally loved this line: “Books this good get made into movies.” Sweeeeet.
