So, someone had the brilliant idea to make today “Bill and Ted Day” because of their fondness for the number 69. It’s been a lot of fun over on the Facebook page. One of the suggested methods of celebrating the day was watching both films. Considering I had a Bill and Ted poster hanging over my breakfast bar when I was teaching in Brownsville, it is no surprise that I didn’t have to look any further than my bookshelf to find a copy of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Unfortunately, finding a copy of Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey wasn’t as easy. Since Netflix didn’t stream it, I had to run all over town to find one. But I’ll be prepared next time. 🙂 They hold up well for twenty years old, I think. I just love William Sadler as the Reaper. And, while rumors are wild over on the Bill and Ted page, Newell says there will be no way they could ever make a Bill and Ted 3 without George Carlin. (Though since that page lists a credit two years after his death…who knows what miracles can be wrought.)

Aside from Bill and Ted day, Newell and I also watched Rango, because Netflix DID have that one…in the Kid’s division…and neither of us had seen it yet. Quite a nice little film. There were whole stretches where Johnny Depp lost himself in the character so well, you couldn’t recognize his voice. That was an excellent performance.

It was mostly a movie day, but I did go take pictures for Kathleen. We have another “watch project”. This is in the same tree that was hosting our cocoon:

And inside it are these:

She thinks it is a mockingbird nest. We’ll keep you updated on the babies when and if they hatch.

That’s about all for today. See you tomorrow.

  1. I liked Rango, but found it pretty scary for a kids movie. You?
