Today was a busy day.
Went to my Auntie Lil's for an early Christmas gathering. I got a great gift. A photo album that had some pictures already in it. Some pictures I'd never seen before. There was a sample from virtually everything. A few baby pics, pics of my brother and I, pics of my aunt and her late husband, my brother's wedding and one of my in my ballet outfit from @1983. Very nice. We had pizza and cheesecake.
My parents also gave me an early xmas present. A $50 Regal Cinema gift card! Freaking awesome, especially since there are so many movies coming out I want to see.
After my aunt's we dropped off Dad and went to shopping and to the movies. We went to Walmart because I needed ice melt. They were sold out. I bought a cheap bag of kitty litter to tide me over. In line we had the worst cashier. She was rude to my mother- who paying for her purchase of gift cards separately. She didn't even acknowledge my mother despite her standing right in front of her holding out the gift cards for her to take. Then when it was my turn, she didn't even acknowledge me either. Then she made a screwed-up face and looked like she was about to vomit. I was so appalled by the service I had to speak to a manager. I would never do that unless it was really bad. It was really bad.
Enough of that.
We went to see Alvin and the Chipmunks. Finally a simple to follow kids movie. No complicated plot points. Just fun, music and helium filled voices. Did you know Justin Long was the voice of Alvin? I find that bit of information really amusing. I have to wonder if the speaking voices for the Chipmunks also did the singing? I know Jesse MaCartney was Theodore, so probably... I really enjoyed the movie. I downloaded the soundtrack earlier this week, I finally got around to listening to it. It's good, Definitely a modern flare to it. However a few of the songs in the movie are sung a cappella; I guess it was too much to hope they would be that way on the soundtrack. Eh.
Here is the soundtrack in case anyone wants it.
I am so freaking cold right now. I am in my jammies and my hoodie. With the hood over my head.
Watching LotR- The Two Towers on TNT. I should make tomorrow trilogy Sunday and watch the EE back to back.
