Dad n Me

February 4 AP 35– Father-Daughter Dollar Movie Nights.  Every once in a while Dad and I will get a chance to go to a dollar movie together.  Our tradition has been to meet up at Half Priced books to browse for maybe an hour before the movie starts.  Dad spends most all of his time flipping through records and I usually read part of a Chuck Palahniuk book and then decide not to buy it… because I can never decide which Chuck Palahniuk book to invest my time in.  Play it safe with Fight Club?  Read Invisible Monster because they might be making a movie off of it?  Read Choke because my brother loved it?  So in the end I just don’t read Chuck Palahniuk except in Half Priced Books on Father-Daughter Dollar Movie Nights.

Well anyway, we saw Fantastic Mr. Fox, which was fantastic.  Loved the puppet animation.  I mean, computer graphics has the ‘ooh-aah’ factor, but puppet animation… I don’t know… reaches out and wakes up some deeper part of your imagination…  the magical childlike part.

It was just a great night, spending time with my dad.

Also, Dad is the loudest movie goer ever.  First there is his laugh.  I’m pretty sure you heard it.  Thursday night, 10:00PM Eastern Time Zone.  That noise you heard?  It was my dad.  Then there is his "whisper"- the one that is not a whisper at all.  Not even close.  That, as well as the fact that he has a comment about every single thing that happens during the movie… in his not-even-close-to-a-whisper whisper.

I love him.  I have the best dad, and I really appreciate our time together.

  1. 1) Fantastic Mr. Fox is the best movie. Ever.
    2) Read Choke. Or Snuff. Safe bet on both.

  2. 1) Yes, I agree. It is a great one.
    2) okay, thanks!

    it’s holly

    my favorite is invisible monsters 🙂 choke is pretty good. snuff is good but also pretty intense for a first-time chuck p reader (haha read any forward of it)! (outside of half priced books) i liked survivor too. he is the dark satire master 🙂

  4. Re: it’s holly

    Dude, which Holly reads all these Chuck P books? I’m thinking of three Hollys… and none of them seem the type! Haha

    I’ve read a pretty good chunk of Invisible Monster… It wouldn’t take long to finish! I should read Choke, too.

    Thanks for the advise
