Ethan's Awards & Spider-Man 3  

So my son is pretty special, evidently.  I've always liked him, but now other people do, too.

He got five awards at yesterday's assembly:

1.  The National Fitness Award
2.  Academic Excellence in Writing (!)
3.  Most Polite
4.  Most Helpful With Peers
5.  'A' Honor roll

I wish he'd bring some of that home.  We could use some helpfulness and politeness here at the house.  Sorry for the Mom Squee.  I can't help myself, sometimes.

First of all, I'd like to go on record to say that I liked it.  Really.  I just don't have anything nice to say HERE.  If you don't want to read the snark, turn back now.  You've been warned.

Still here?  Okay.  
Q:  So how do you know that Spider-Man is being possessed by the symbiote?  
A:  He gets emo, grows his bangs out, and puts on some eyeliner.  Peter Parker is in NO WAY cool, and Tobey Maguire might be one step under Pete.

Thomas Hayden Church has GOT to use steroids.  And what happened to the Sandman's kid?  Did I sleep through that part?

I wish Kirsten Dunst would get her teeth fixed.  Surely she makes enough money.  NO MORE VAMPIRE TEETH, KIKI!

Happy for James Franco doesn't work for me.  He's creepy loking when he smiles too much.  I wanted to slap him and scream, "Stop it!  You're freaking me out!"  The scowling and scarring only help him out, IMHO. 

None of the bad guys were really bad; they were just a little emo, misunderstood, or possessed by a symbiote.

Oh, and Topher Grace.  I'm not sure I buy that.  At all.

We'll be out of town for the memorial day weekend, so I'd like to wish dragonsangel68 a lovely birthday, a little early.  Hope all your wishes come true.

Go Ethan! You know usually it's the other way around. As a teacher I get, "but he/she doesn't act like that at home" almost everytime a behavior problem comes up. ANYWAY What you said about the movie is so dead on. Almost all of those I mentioned to my hubby and more, but we saw it a few weeks ago and I forgot. No matter what though, I have to love any movie that has Bruce Campbell and Ted Rami in them.

I love Bruce Campbell. We went to the book signing at Hastings when he was here with his autobiography. He ROCKS.

The first gift I ever gave hubby was an Army of Darkness poster. That's before I knew I'd be marrying it. :P

HE WAS HERE????? How did I miss that? Glad you got to meet him though.

Contrats, Ethan! You have every right to be proud.

I haven't seen Spidey yet and I don't really care but I'll probably be forced to go this weekend. I think Topher is a bad guy, right? Yeah, I wouldn't buy that either.

Have fun on your weekend away.
