Movies

Not to be outdone by Wolverine, Peter Pan’s getting an Origins movie too. Probable bad idea made worse by involvement of Channing Tatum…

Geeks make the house from “Up” in real life!

TV

Firefly was divinely inspired (if you believe The Cutting Room webcomic, that is)

Music

Never cared much for the original song, but in parody form it’s quite amusing. Watch for minor celebrity cameos!

Other

Books

The most popular books of 1983 (a very good year, if I do say so myself!)

Win for me and fellow dino-fans – hooray, Triceratops has been redeemed and declared a dinosaur again! (Now, we work on reinstating Pluto…)

Made me smile as we’re arguing about what sort of bookshelves we want at home at the moment…at least we can agree, not these…

The 15 Worst Films of 2010 (which I proudly have seen none of!)

Other

Herge-Lovecraft Mashup (AKA “Tintin and the Tentacles”!)

A colleague set me onto STFU Parents, where bloggers showcase some really REALLY awful Facebook updates from oversharing parents. “Don’t ever be like this”, she pleaded. I will endeavour not to. At least now I have a benchmark.

Friday Wrap-up: Countdowns, Cold Cuts and Communication

Filed under: Food, music, Scouts — liberrydwarf @ 9:28 am

The week that was!

1) One Good Thing: It’s only 6 more weeks until I’m on holidays now!! (That’s assuming I can make it through 6 more weeks, but think positive!)

2) One Bad Thing: Overate at Melbourne Cup Lunch. Still groaning days later… And just like with WW wine, there was tonnes of cold meats and those delicious French soft cheeses, none of which I can eat anymore. Salad and I are uncomfortable friends now…

3) One Thing I Learned: “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” in sign language. At least mostly learned. I hope none of our kids try this on a real live person with a hearing impairment, just in case we inadvertently switched “like a diamond in the sky” with “your grandmother is a goat” or something similar….
