Our day got zapped away! Zzzzzzzap!

Okay, so it wasn't really zapped away, but we were gone all day. In case you didn't notice. Whoever "you" are. But you probably didn't notice, since you probably have better things to do than wait for us to update LJ. And if you don't...I'm sorry.

Anyway, basically what happened was we had plans to go to the temple with Celeste, and we had been bugging Mom to go see John Carter, because we knew she really wanted to see it, and what with her busy schedule and Steve not wanting to see it, we kind of arbitrarily decided it was our job to make that happen. And so today also ended up being the day we saw John Carter, and for some reason those two things ended up taking all day.

The movie was pretty good. We was worried that since it was set on a warring desert planet the stunning visuals would be too much for us, but there was enough story to go with them that it kept us entertained. It wasn't until the end credits that we realized that this was the live action movie directed by Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL-E), and I have very mixed feelings about that. But Mom loved it, and that's the important thing.

Anyway, we need to go to bed. Today I'm thankful for getting to go to the temple, getting to see the movie, getting treated to lunch and dinner, getting to go to PetSmart to buy food for our spoiled cats, and having time to play Gyakuten Kenji 2 afterwards.
