I'm a Hedge-trimming Machine

So Chase had this BCM workday scheduled for Saturday and two people showed up, including Chase and myself. I did some hedge trimming using the new HedgeHog. It was pretty fun, but it made me sore. My nose felt like I'd been punched in the face from where the protective goggles had been sitting, vibrating and having debris hit. My back was sore and my arms still hurt, but it was still pretty cool.

We've gotten into a movie kick lately. We watched all the Harry Potter movies and then this weekend we rented Everything Is Illuminated and The Last Mimzy. We both really liked Everything Is Illuminated. That movie stars Frodo (yes, I know his name, but I've decided that I will forever refer to him as Frodo or maybe The Good Son). Illuminated really captures the characture of an American culture-loving Eastern European. Plus, there's a dog named Sammy Davis Jr. Jr.

Chase fell asleep during Mimzy, but Chase falling asleep during a movie has nothing to do with whether or not it's good. I really liked Mimzy. I thought it was interesting and sci-fi-tastic. The worst part of the movie was the unnecessary shot of Dwight's butt. Yeah, this is the movie that has Dwight from The Office (yes, I know his name, too, but he will forever be Dwight Schrute). I mean, the movie was marketed to kids, so why show Dwight's butt? I don't get it. Other than that, I liked it. I wouldn't necessarily call Mimzy a kids' movie, but I think a lot of kids would like it.

This weekend we also watched an old rerun of Soul Train on TV. Now, that's a great comedy!

I watched the Frodo movie back in March. I thought it was a really great flick. And yes the SD, Jr. Jr. had me rolling. Holla.

He says that Sammy Davis, Jr. was a Jew.

Cursing in Ukraini.

My granfather says this is not possible.
