You Just Smile, Act Natural And Then You Sucker Punch

We’ve had another good day. The little man’s paternal grandma agreed to watch the lad for a few hours, so that his Auntie D and I could catch a movie. We headed to Har Mar for a showing of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. What can I say about it? I’m still thinking it through. It’s been described as “a zany soap opera at sea” but that doesn’t quite cover it for Wes Anderson’s latest funny-sad film. I’ll agree that it “makes little sense but is still fun to watch” and just say it’s something to behold. And I’ll admit to a bit of a crush on Brazilian singer Seu Jorge (who plays Pelé dos Santos, one of Steve’s minions). Yeah. Now as the year is winding down I’ve got to get back to work. Client work, getting the house ready for our annual New Year’s Eve potluck, visiting with family from out of town, setting up play dates for the little man…and keeping myself away from Katamari Damacy.
Bonus: Onomatopoeia around the world (from MeFi).
