Sailor Boy and I went to see WALL·E last night (in passing, I wonder how many journalists now know how to find the “middle dot” symbol on their computers, thanks to Pixar?). So great! I loved it. I laughed and laughed. I had been scared to see it, previously, because I get a little worked up over animated films (I have seen The Incredibles dozens of times, and when Mrs. Incredible screams at her daughter while the plane is crashing, I still burst into tears). Anyway, Wall·E is so cute and adorable that I knew they were going to put him in a lot of danger throughout the course of the movie, and if they killed him off, I was going to be very, very, very upset. Manipulative Pixar bastards.
Anyway, I thought it was a great movie. Not The Incredibles, but definitely up there in the panoply of great animated flicks. Robots in love is pretty much a go-to plotline, as far as I’m concerned. Then again, it’s possible that I watched the Brave LIttle Toaster at an impressionable age.
I’m inexplicably in a cooking mood of late. Yesterday I made these phenomenal quinoa and corn-stuffed roast peppers with a spicy, garlic and cumin infused tomato chile sauce. Delicious! Today, i may make brunch and surprise SB, who is still asleep. Depends on how quickly I can get to the store and back.
