Bill & Ted Movie Night

My sister and I used to have movie nights. I mean some serious movie nights. We would have "Corey Feldman night" or "musical night" when we were younger. We would ride bikes to the movie rental place and get a couple of VHS, pop some popcorn and stay up late watching movies we'd already seen.

As we got older we started having more involved movie nights. We would watch Jaws and eat gourmet tuna salad, some kind of red cocktail that looked like chum, and a fruit salad inside of a watermelon carved to look like a shark.

Our next movie night is Bill & Ted. We plan to watch all of the Bill & Ted movies and eat "foods that are excellent to each other"

Some foods we are considering:

  • Cheese and crackers
  • Peanut butter and Jelly
  • Bangers and mash
  • Chicken and waffles
  • Corned beef and hash
  • Cookies and milk
  • Coffee and doughnuts
  • Pizza and beer

The trick is to not have too many filling foods in big portions. Also, we are going to have to nix the peanut butter and jelly, as my sister is allergic. We may replace it with Almond butter and jelly. Also, she is gluten intolerant, so we are going to have to get gluten-free versions of some foods. Have fun on movie night and remember to Be Excellent to Each Other!

Totally inconsiderate at the Clark county fair

I signed Caleb up for mutton bustin at the Clark county fair today. At sign up, they told us to come back at 1:30. They also told every other family with young children the same thing. So at 1:25 there was a long line of families standing in the blazing heat with no shade waiting at the gate. It was then that we were told that we would have to wait until 1:50. That is way too long for young children to have to wait in fill afternoon sun while the people in charge sip drinks under the shade they set up for themselves. 

Those in charge of the Clark country fair lounge in the shade while families with young children swelter in the heat.
