This morning on my 4.3 (but who is really counting) mile run, I listened to Terry Gross interview Jack Black. It was really funny and kept my mind off the fact that I was running and sore from yesterday's workout. It was not quite as funny as her interview with Jason Bateman. And not nearly as funny as her interview with Jon Stewart, which is also known as The Funniest Terry Gross Interview of All Time, according to me.
She played a portion of this song which first made my jaw drop and then made me guffaw. Neither of which is conducive to breathing while running.
I've never seen the movie High Fidelity, but tried to read the book. The book was kind of boring and so full of language (those crazy Brits!) that I gave it a pass. But this clip makes me think I should reconsider.
Last night we took the whole family to see The Avengers. It was all that I dreamed of and more. SO fun. SUPER clean. I think it would make basis for a solid Family Home Evening lesson (cue my children's groans and eye rolls.) Avengers is about selflessness and teamwork and looking for people's strengths instead of their weaknesses. And defeating the bad guys! If I do have a FHE lesson on it, I think the opening song will be "We're All in This Together" from High School Musical. Good thing I already know the dance moves!
Now I am off to clean my house and go to Trader Joes. I love my life.
