February 17, 2009 - Life at Home - Still Sick Edition

Buttercup was really feeling under the weather today and I'm still pretty low energy. This cold just saps your energy and ability to stay focused for any length of time. (Seriously. I've been playing a lot of solitaire, for goodness' sake!)

Fortunately Netflix streaming was at the ready and provided hours of cheesy entertainment.

First, we watch "Godzilla Tokyo SOS ". (As I type this, I've been informed that this movie was NOT cheesy. Sorry--my bad.) Still can't figure out the two orange-sarong clad fairy chicks, but hey, what do I know?

Buttercup loved it and now I can say I've introduced my children to badly dubbed foreign films. My work here is complete!

After that, we took a risk on "Dragon Wars". We all agree this turned out to be THE WORST MOVIE WE'VE EVER WATCHED.

Yet, we watched it all the way through. What does that say about us? It was really like finding yourself watching golf or bowling on Sunday and being too darned tired to get up to change the channel. (Remember those days?)

I love Godzilla movies and this one was particularly good. I have to admit that the two fairies made not sense to me either.

As I recall the kids of the house were the remote controls back then. I even remember being called downstairs to change the channel for my mother. I love all the Monster Island movies. They take me back to an much more innocent time. Ahhh Mothra, how I miss you.
