Today was a pretty good day. It was Friday, which means Daniel and I always put a little extra effort into dinner. I also got to watch the Blue Angels flying over campus while I was at work. That was awesome. Some people are completely impressed with their flips or turns, et cetera, but Daniel and I agreed that it is most impressive when they all fly together, synchronized.
After dinner, we went for a quick drive over to Henrietta after Daniel called the Guitar Center and they said they had the new Korg Monotribes in stock. It turns out that they lied; they only had the Monotribe’s younger brother, the Monotron, which Daniel already has. So that was a disappointment.
We came back to the apartment and decided to watch A Bug’s Life. This is by far my favorite Pixar movie. I think it’s because most of their movies are just heart-wrenching. I can’t watch Wall-E or Toy Story 3 without practically having a mental breakdown. I just start bawling. And once the movie ends, I continue to cry. The last time Daniel and I watched Wall-E, I was still hysterical 10 minutes after the movie ended. It was awful. But A Bug’s Life is hilarious. I love the characters. It also features voices from a number of different big-name actors and actresses, including Dave Foley (of Kids in the Hall), Kevin Spacey, Phyllis Diller, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Richard Kind, Brad Garrett, Bonnie Hunt, David Hyde Pierce, Hayden Panettiere, Denis Leary, and Madeline Kahn, as well as a few others. Of the Pixar films, I think this one is the funniest. A little side tidbit: The copy that I own is actually on VHS, since it was purchased by my grandmother in the ’90s, long before anyone in our family considered DVDs. After my grandparents died, I decided that I had to keep that movie. I still watch it pretty regularly, although it’s difficult convincing Daniel sometimes.
Ant Hill Cooperative, that is.
