The Christmas tree lots are being set up. The red wooden racks are up and ready for a tree delivery in the Super KMart parking lot. Yesterday I went to Walmart for Kung Fu Panda. Walmart was packed. I also went to JoAnn Fabrics to get a few things and it was packed too. Lots of stuff is on sale especially Halloween leftovers, but Christmas stuff is on sale too.
We did a lot of movie watching this week, Get Smart, The Forbidden Kingdom, Incredible Hulk, and The Love Guru Mariska Hargitay…
The CGI Hulk was incredible, his face was so expressive.
We also watched The Land That Time Forgot on one of the Encore channels. 1975. Very visible strings/wires on the pterydactyl that made off with the Neanderthal. Very obvious models and puppet monsters. Fun to watch with an almost 8-year-old who doesn’t really know those crappy special effects.
