Thanks to everyone who responded. I have no idea what exactly happened, but for all of yesterday I couldn’t see my blog. By “couldn’t see my blog” I mean that there was nothing, just a white screen….. no writing, no links, no comments, nothing. I refreshed and cleared the cache, I even restarted the whole shebang holding a lucky penny and reciting “I do believe in fairies, I do, I do, I do”…. and I got squat. Whatever caused the issue is gone now, and I can thankfully once more see… well… myself. I suspect that Caitho may have been on the computer being mischievious- but you never know.
So yesterday, we reinstalled a Stephieface essential in our home……
We bought Goonies on DVD.
Oh yes, Goonies.
Really, how can I expect my kids to grow up and not know what the Truffle Shuffle, Pinches of Pow, and who Chester Copperpot is. These are important life lessons. It does also contain one of my first same age crushes, Sean Astin. I say same age, because before then I had a thing for older men apparently. But Sean Astin, Hobbit Extraordinaire…come on… who’s with me?
By the way, in case you actually wondered… I am way more fond of Sean Astin than I am of his brother Mackenzie. I also like that Sean is built like a person, and in general I like people built like persons.
My only hope though is that we do not have a replay of the last Great Goonies Snafu. The Great Goonies Snafu is priceless. The eldest monkey, when he first ever watched Goonies on VHS, decided to look for secret tunnels to treasure by cutting holes in our floor. I’m sure this would have worked out for him eventually since we live in the second floor.
The Mister brought home other films as well, that- because I did not choose them- I am sure are not going to teach our children life lessons. Does Independence day teach our children to follow maps? Nope. Does Starship Troopers show our children where they can successfully hide discovered pirate treasure so that Joe Pantoliano and Anne Ramsey can’t find it? Not at all. What can my children learn from the movies HE picks? Alien kicking and don’t say I Love You or you’ll get skewered by ginormous bugs. I mean really, his movies don’t even have slick shoes….. sheesh.
