Day 595 - Poll Results & New Poll
Last week I asked what movie should we see this summer. It was a tight race, but Pixar, watch out! Thirty-eight percent of you would rather see this summer's potential break-out hit "Crazy Grandma Ichikawa Movietime" than "Up." Imagine the merchandising bonanza with "Crazy Grandma Ichikawa Movietime!" Kids could have their very own Crazy Grandma Ichikawa plush doll that says catchphrases like "Me no rike!" or "Crean sink wit q-tip!" or "Me nag nag nag all day rong!"
Personally, the movie I want to see most on the list is "Up." Pixar movies are always a guaranteed good time, and I can't think of any one who has had more consecutive hits (unless you count poor little me on the school yard in 3rd grade...). Hopefully Crazy Grandma and Lazy Grandpa will have enough energy left in them on the weekends for us to see a few more movies before they leave. And if not, the best thing about living in Los Angeles is that you can easily find a last minute babysitter in front of any 7-11 or Home Depot at a very reasonable price.
The weather has been really nice here in Los Angeles lately. Just cool enough to wear a light jacket, but warm enough not to wear pants. It looks like this Memorial Weekend the weather should be in the mid-70s -- which means not only will I not wear pants, but underwear may be optional.
I know I've been a grouch about taking the kids on little weekend excursions, but I'm thinking that since we have a long weekend it might be nice to do something different. Remembering that the kids are 19 months old and have the attention span of people attending a narcolepsy conference, what would be an appropriate activity this weekend? The park? The beach? Electronic Fry's Memorial Weekend Sale?
