March of the penguins

Den ER jo vakker og fin og søt og bra, men også litt langtekkelig da. Er ikke helt sikker på om jeg var våken hele tida. Denne passer glimrende dagen derpå. Ingenting som er farlig! Bortsett fra en sel som spiser en pingvin og noen pingvinlik som ligger her og der... Fiiine pingfinan.

V for Vendetta

Basert på en tegneserie der det nesten er vanskelig å se tegningene... men nå ble den mye enklere. Kanonbra film dette, spennende og nesten religiøst vakker eksplosjon på slutten, hehe.

The Descent

Gøkki skrekkfilm om seks jenter som klatrer ned til jordas indre (vel et godt stykke innover iallfall). Samme regissør som på Dog soldiers, og den var jo også ganske skummel... Litt vel mye skvette-av-høy-lyd-trikset, men ellers ikke så verst.

Jarhead

Synes ikke denne var så dårlig som kritikken skulle ha det til. Handler stort sett om kjedsomheten til soldater i Kuwait.

Fin origamifigur



Det er ikke alltid så lett. Kom på at jeg ville dele denne figuren med omverdenen. I min tid ved lærerutdanningen hadde vi innimellom en del origamiinnslag, med varierende hell. En av figurene vi lagde var en frosk. Personen som lagde frosken på bildet skal få være anonym, naturlig nok, men dette var altså det beste han klarte innen origami. Ikke verst, Marius!

Top ten reasons Geeks make good fathers

(Stjålet frekt og freidig fra http://spaces.msn.com/imhelendt/Blog/cns%211pLLf-75vbkScDmJSvitLgBA%21490.entry )

Ok, after writing about how it isn't always easy being married to a Geek, and ten reasons Geeks make good friends, I have one more Top Ten of Geekdom for you inspired by Maryam's geek blogs: Ten reasons why Geeks make good fathers. And they do! They really are uniquely qualified for this role. My husband says I never blog nicely about him, so honey, here you go:

1. LEGOS. The Geek is really more of a Man-Child than an adult. In their minds, they are still 10. They freakin' still love to play with their legos, and have never grown up. I have one friend, WHO WILL REMAIN NAMELESS, that still has legos in his room. He doesn't have kids. Just legos. Of course, my children love legos and Steve will lovingly spend hours playing legos with them.

2. VIDEO GAMES. Due to the whole Man-Child thing as stated in #1, the Geek loves video games. And he's good at them too. My husband is the hit of all the kids' friends because not only can he talk video games, he plays them too. If my children get "stuck" while playing their Gameboys and bring it to me for assistance, all I can do is feebly hold it and say " Mommy doesn't know how to play this." Daddy, however, can beat the game.

3. MATH. A huge plus here. No matter how old they get, Steve can still help with the math homework. My ability to be of assistance is going to last another few years before *I* end up throwing the math homework across the room in disgust.

4. SMART KIDS. Smart Geeks make smart children. Although for the most part, it's great to have really intelligent children, when your just turned two year old is using the word PREPOSTEROUS correctly, it makes for some difficult times as they get older. I literally spend a large part of my time scheming to stay one step ahead of my oldest child.

5. UP ON TECHNOLOGY. The beautiful thing about having a Geek for a parent is that you aren't wondering what your children are doing online. You *KNOW* what they are doing online and you can limit it if necessary.
It's fabulous peace of mind.

6. SCIENCE FAIR PROJECTS. Children of the Geeks always have the coolest science fair projects. And you don't have to cajole your Geek into helping. You'll find him fiddling around with the science materials whether you asked him to help or not.

7. TOY ASSEMBLY. You will never, ever have to spend six hours of your life, that you will never get back, trying to assemble some 2,000 piece toy at 3 am on Christmas Eve again. The Geek can do it in minutes flat. Usually without the directions. Whereas I have tried to assemble toys and said "Mommy has to go to the bathroom" just so I could escape and scream into my pillow in frustration, if the Geek is around, he can take it right off your hands. I now just say "Daddy is really good at this, let's wait until he gets home."

8. GADGETS. Never again will you have to wonder what that new electronic toy is that all the kids have. In fact, your Geek will probably already own it. The problem arises when the Geek won't share with the children. "Daddy, I want a digital camera." After the child leaves the room: "I'm not spending hundreds of dollars on a digital camera for him, he's too young." I say "Let's get him a cheap one." Steve looks at me as if I just said Aliens are invited to dinner. " To have it take crappy pictures?" He scoffs and walks away in disgust. No sub-par electronics in this house! How dare I suggest it.

9. SMART IS COOL. Having a Geek for a father instills the message into your children that smart is cool. They idolize Daddy. Hopefully, they'll want to grow up to be just like him.

10. BEING IDOLIZED IS GOOD FOR YOUR GEEK. Course, you have to be careful that his head doesn't get TOO BIG

Volvo Lastvagner

Egentlig veldig morsomt! Finurlig bok med fortsettelse av historien om Doppler og elgen Bongo... Pluss en del andre absurde personligheter og masse unyttig informasjon. Men det er morsommere enn forrige gang :)

Min verdi!

I am worth $1,832,050 on HumanForSale.com

Chicken Little

Sikkert beregnet på yngre publikum enn The Incredibles og Terkel i knibe er...

Dårlig samvittighet


Bildet var så fint. Også bare hang det der så fint også. Så jeg kjøpte det. Det kosta halve månedslønna (nesten da), og samvittigheten etterpå var ikke så bra. Det gjorde også ganske vondt i lommeboka.

Men bildet er fint, da...

Baron von Munchhausen

Elendig film av Terry Gilliam. Springende usammenhengende greier, som jeg egentlig ikke skjønte SÅ mye av. Kanskje derfor den var så dårlig ogs...

Jersey Girl

Forholdsvis morsom film, selv om Ben Affleck er med. En av de mest middelmådige Kevin Smith-filmene, og selvsagt dukker My name is Earl-Earl og Matt Damon også opp.

Elsk meg i Morgen

Elling III. Hvordan i all verden slutter denne egentlig? Skikkelig nedtur...

Sahara

Skikkelig møkkafilm med Penelope Cruz og Matthew Ettellerannet.

Finger


Ja, jeg vet. Dette er ikke helt sånn det skal være. Fingeren til Lill Anita er absolutt ikke sånn den skal være.
