On Repeat, In a Big Way
Does the above picture look familiar to you? The hobo guy on The Polar Express is sure becoming familiar to me, for I'm seeing a lot of him. And Shrek the Halls too. The benefit of the latter is that it's relatively short. The benefit of the former is that there are a few parts that cause Nikki Dee to become a trifle apprehensive, so I get a number of lap requests. Cuddling on my lap, however, does sometimes lead to odd positions.
Yes indeed, SILly couldn't help himself and brought home a huge HDTV — "for the family," don't you know. I must say that with the very fine surround sound that he already had set up, it makes for quite a fine viewing experience, and Nikki Dee now frequently asks for "Movie?" She leads me by the hand, and we head downstairs to the rec room where I am fortunate enough to view Shrek or Polar Express one more time.
Once those films are put away until next year (as I trust they will be in a few weeks), I wonder what the next repetitive attractions will be. Lion King, perhaps?
One hardly needs to go see movies on the Big Screen anymore because everyone (except Cuppa and me) has one in their own house — where the popcorn is cheaper. Still, it's not like a date, so I'm sure we'll still be heading to the local cinema for our usual dose of three of four movies per year.
