Last night Sarah, Obie, the wasband (yes, he’s back for a few days) and I went to The Falmouth Cinema Pub
to see The movie “Tropic Thunder”.
The theater that we went to is new and serves food, beer and wine. I had a grilled chicken salad which was very good so I stuck with my WW plan. I also just had diet coke. No one was in the mood to drink. I think we did our fair share at the Luau. You sit in comfy chairs at tables. It was very cool. I also had a $50 gift certificate that I got for my birthday so I was able to help pay for the evening.
The movie was hilarious. They have a part of the movie where they refer to mentally challenged people as retards. I guess the movie was picketed in some areas for this un-politically correct use of the word retarded. What they were really doing was spoofing Hollywood but some people just didn’t get it and took it the wrong way. They had the character of Jack Black being in another movie called “Fatties”. Now let’s face it–I’M FAT. You didn’t see me picketing the place. I was inside LMAO. I guess I’m not easily offended.
I once had a very short old lady call me fat in my store. She said ” You’re getting fatter”. I remarked back and said “You’re getting shorter”. My father had to run out of the room, he was laughing so hard. I burst into laughter too. I couldn’t help myself.
I usually don’t get many laughs out of these types of comedies but this was very funny. There are two surprise cameo appearances and one of them is hilarious. You will know it when you realize who he is. This is just not what I would expect from this actor but I thought he was tremendous at the role he played. Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey, Jr. are superb in their parts. I’m a huge Robert Downey, Jr. fan. After seeing him in Ironman, I can’t believe what a great actor he is. Jack Black is absolutely hilarious in this film but then he always is.
The wasband’s girlfriend is a teacher and she goes back to work tomorrow. She lives in the city and will be home at night to grade papers and go to sleep early. I think Barry will probably stay at our house during the week so he can do his birding (mow the lawn, clean the gutters and do other odd jobs for us–he doesn’t know this yet.) Well, I guess he does now because he reads my blog. The two of them have had a great summer traveling all over New England doing their bird thing. He’s gotten more awesome photographs but I think they are both disappointed that it is over for a while. But they will have their weekends. I talked to her for about 20 minutes last night. I just adore her. She is a sweetheart and I can see why the wasband loves her.
No beach today with Sarah. It’s cloudy and I am going to take my brother grocery shopping because I want to have tomorrow free. I just might be going to the beach with two of my blogging buddies that I have never met. I hope it all works out. They’ve been warned about our thieving seagulls.
I have my Doctor’s appointment for my tingly head in 45 minutes. I’ll keep you posted. Hopefully I get to keep my brain.
