awkward comment @ the movie theater

girl: (said REALLY loud) Are there a bunch of midgets saving these seats or something???
girl:  (pauses)…ohhhh…these are booster seats for little kids.  Whatever, we’re sitting here.
girl’s friend:  Did you seriously just ask if there were midgets sitting here?


(thinking to myself) doh!…good job girl…a smart one you are

up movie

By tying thousands of balloon to his home, 78 yr. old Carl Fredricksen heads out to fulfill his lifelong dream to explore South America.  After taking off he finds he has a unintentional stowaway scout, Russell.  That’s a basic summary of Pixar’s newest movie, UP!

I love Russell!!  Sooo CUTE!!  Grumpy old man vs. spunky little asian boy…many laughs to be had.  I am sooo ready for this movie.  Comes out today!

(UPDATE: saw this movie and it was awesome!  Pixar made another winner)

coco avant chanel

Audrey Tatou (known for playing Amelie) portrays fashion design icon, Coco Chanel, in the French movie about the designer’s life, “Coco Avant Chanel” (“Coco Before Chanel”).  The movie has been released in Europe already and will be released in limited showing in the U.S. sometime in September 2009 according to IMDB.  I love Audrey Tatou!  Beautiful and great actress.  Excellent choice for the role.  Can’t wait for the movie to come out.

303,000 texts

I’m not sure how to text 303,000 phone texts in a month, but this girl did.  Apparently it comes out to 7 texts a minute or 10,100 texts a day…crazy!  I wonder if her thumbs are tired?

haw flakes

haw flakes

A snack from when I was a little kid!  Found these at a Chinese grocery store the other day and I just had to get them!  Not to mention a 10 pack of these firecracker-looking packages was only 39 cents!  Amazing.  That’s like the cheapest thing I’ve gotten at a store in a very long time.

They taste just as I remember them and I’m pretty positive the packaging hasn’t changed at all (no rebranding for them!)  Decided to look up what exactly makes up a haw flake because I never knew.  These sugary little discs, that are probably only slightly bigger than a nickel, are made from the hawthorn fruit.  I guess if you wanted to compare the taste to something, they would remind you of those natural fruit leathers you get at the grocery store. Consistency is chewy and slightly brittle.
