Ups and downs

This week really has been full of ups and downs. Just this morning we learned that Wayne Allwine, the voice of Mickey Mouse for the past 32 years, passed away on Monday. He was Mickey Mouse all of our lives, and while of course we've watched older cartoons where Mickey was voiced by somebody else, Mr. Allwine's Mickey is still very... oh, any word I come up with sounds too sappy to me. At any rate, he will definitely be missed.

Changing the subject, Night at the Museum 2 was pretty awesome. I think I liked the first one better, but this one was still really fun. It was a little hard to sit through some parts though, but that's only because we have a strong aversion to Amy Adams for something that's not entirely her fault. Still, we do have to wonder what happened to the girl from the first Night at the Museum. It's like she never existed!

I'm not feeling entirely talkative today, and I think that has a lot to do with our eagerness to get back to Kingdom Hearts. Athena says that usually, if she's had a couple of days to spend lots and lots of time on a game, she doesn't have too much of a problem putting it down for a while, but that's not happening so much with Kingdom Hearts right now. And this is even the third time we've played it! Oh Square-Enix and their magical abilities to addict people to their games.

Today I'm thankful for Night at the Museum 2 being nearly as good as the first one, Oreo reminding us to give him his medicine even though he hates it, Oreo staying on the Playstation even while we're playing it, Mickey Mouse plushies to hug, and 32 years of Wayne Allwine and his fantastic portrayal of Mickey Mouse.
