Anyway, more importantly, we found out this morning that apparently The Weekenders is on DVD! (Disney Movie Club exclusive, it would seem.) We would order it right now except we might be leaving for Chick-Fil-A soon (Mom and Steve showed up as we were trying to come up with a fifth thing to be thankful for). But oh my goodness, The Weekenders! We kind of heard about it when it was first on the air, but we ignored it because we thought it was a wannabe Recess. Then after we graduated college, it was on Toon Disney, so we caught an episode and it's so funny! The main line I remember is when one of the kids is trying to get into a museum exhibit, but there's a guy outside who won't let him because it's not for kids or something like that, and the kid says something about his friend Mr. Washington, and the guy is like, "You want to bribe me...with a dollar?" And the kid says, "Actually, it was a quarter." (It sounded way better than I remembered it.) Oh man, good times.
We really regret not watching it when ratings counted...not that we would have counted anyway. Do they still do the Nielsen family thing, or do they just count everybody now that everything's gone digital? It doesn't matter, though, because if it originally aired when we were in the dorms, we couldn't have watched it, because the dorms didn't have cable, and those were in the days before Hulu. ...That makes me feel old.
Today I'm thankful for having professional work to do, The Weekenders on DVD!!, Mom and Steve taking us out to Chick-Fil-A, having confirmed that all the books we ordered from Barnes & Noble were in fact the books we ordered (the cover to the Rescuers is simultaneously adorable and hilarious, but sadly it's just the one book), and finally getting to hear the Koe no Ouji-samas sing It's A Small World.
