Beatrix Potter's Birthday

Today is Beatrix Potter's Birthday. Gotta love Peter Rabbit. How do I know this? On the Google Page. When you go to the main Google page often the words Google will have some kinda clue to the importance of the day. Today when I used Google, there was a picture of Peter Rabbit and the farmer on it. I suspected something about Beatrix Potter so I double clicked on the words and it came up. Cool, eh? I gotta admit that I used Google for at least a year before I figured that one out. The movie about Beatrix Potter - "Miss Potter" was a good one. I enjoyed it.

CampPupp is in it's second week. This weekend the oldest kid went to with his God Mother so we were down a player. We hung out at home. I was a proud auntie when the kiddo asked for boards, nails, and a hammer. He spent the weekend in the backyard making a skateboard ramp. Tank helped. I'm not sure what she did besides stealing the hammer but they were both out there all day. I figured a kid in the back yard with boards, nails, hammer and a yellow lab was way better than a kid in front of the television.

I, on the other hand, didn't feel well and layed on the couch in front of the tv all weekend. One of the most interesting, yet disturbing movies I watched was Tideland. It's about a little girl with a herion addict father who gets stranded in a farm house. Very artsy. Very disturbing on many levels. Please note that the minor members of CampPupp did NOT watch this movie. This movie reminded me of a movie that I watched a very long time ago. All I remember is a dancing bear and that the brother wanted to have sex with the sister all throughout the movie but finally did. This movie is one of the Think Film movies. 1/2 Paw up.

I also watched 10,000 BC. Not at good as the hype. But not bad either. I enjoyed it as I usually enjoy movies about indigious people. One Paw up!

The Golden Compass was a crowd pleaser at my house. It was two paws up and a tail wag! We loved the polar bear. And now we want to get the same kind of armor for Tank so she can be a polar bear too! Watch for the sequel.

So, we thought we had watched the new Futurama movie. Well, it wasn't. So we got the new one. Two paws up at our house!

And Spiderwick!! Two paws up! We loved it. Who knew that troll spit would be so helpful?

Then the youngest camper and I found The 12 Days of Terror!!! It's the story that many people believe inspired the book Jaws. And you know how we love Jaws in my house! Two Paws up! And a cold nose!

Currently, we are watching Semi Pro. We picked it up for Aunt Jenn who likes "stupid" movies like this. Early in the movie, we excused the youngest camper to the back bedroom to play PlayStationII due to language in the movie. I rate this movie as a butt sniff. I didn't enjoy it. Jenn may rate it differently. It was a butt sniff cuz I looked at it but didn't like it much. I don't usually like Will Ferrell much.
