Turns out, you don’t NEED a brain!

Today I went to see Monsters Vs Aliens with Eunice and her brother Jason…in 3D!

It completely and utterly lived up to my expectations. You know how sometimes the trailers basically show the best parts of a movie? No way, not this one. Seth Rogen is amazing in this movie, his crazy dumb laugh carried B.O.B. off perfectly. That’s not to say Hugh Laurie didn’t do a good job as Dr Cockroach.

Dr Cockroach: We think the new Susan is the cat’s mee-WOW! [laughs nervously] …sorry.

Dr Cockroach: [seeing the core reactor] Oh. Em. Gee. (Eunice and I laughed so loudly in that part)

Dr Cockroach: [referring to B.O.B.] You must forgive my friend, but as you can see, he has no brain.
B.O.B.: Turns out, you don’t need one! Totally overrated. I don’t even need to [gasps for air] I FORGOT HOW TO BREATHE! Help me, Dr Cockroach! [shakes Dr Cockroach]
Dr Cockroach: Suck in, . B.O.B.
B.O.B.: [breathes in] Thanks Doc, you’re a lifesaver.

[awaiting certain death]
Missing Link: It’s been an honor to have known you, Dr Cockroach.
Dr Cockroach: The feeling’s mutual, my friend. [shakes hands]
B.O.B.: [solemnly] And I shall see you two. Tomorrow. For lunch.

If you liked those quotes, then you should seriously go see the movie. You will love B.O.B. I totally guarantee it. The designers of B.O.B. probably went, “Physical impossibility? I’ve never heard of it!” and just went ahead and had fun with it.

Anyway, after the movie, Eunice’s mom dropped us off at Glenny station, Eunice went on her way to the city for a mentor thing, and I went to the library to research for Ben Cousins. Didn’t get far, because the Monash library doesn’t have an archive of newspapers, but I did go onto an online resource and also tomorrow will go to State and see what’s going on there.

Then I went to Cafe Moretti, the newish one that opened where Paintright used to be near the library (Paintright was there about 3 years ago it took a really long time for the place to open. Originally it was going to be an Asian restaurant but clearly that fell through). Had a bacon and onion omelet with cappucino, read some of Hitchhiker’s Guide (I really should finish that book) and then went to the Glen for the sake of just being in there. As I was going to the bus stop to go home, I ran across some Brentwood friends so we chatted a bit at the lights, then took the bus home. I think I got sunburnt again. I really need to grow some tougher skin.

Seeing Cathy tomorrow, and the Comedy Festival. Can’t wait.

Alex.
