Of Meatballs and Choppers.

I went out with a friend to town today. I had to pay my Maxis mobile bill and car loan, and to have somebody near was great enough to rant and scream the exorbitant price of high living until his ear dropped off. Originally, there would be three of us, but that particular friend had something else to do this afternoon. Well, no biggie. He was too heavy anyway for my car :P

So after paying the bills, we went to the nearby cinema, MBO and I bought the 1.30 pm show for the animated feature 'Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs'. As we waited in the VIP lounge, some people with a horde of brats entered and they (children) made a lot of noise in the small room. I wanted to give the parents a piece of my mind for allowing their children to be extremely loud in an enclosed place, but I decided against it when I saw the poor father was a so tired on his couch. He was nodding himself to sleep - taking care of demon spawns must be tough.

So we watched the movie.... Even though the plot was so simple, it was still a good movie. And as it wasn't a Pixar's or Walt Disney's, it wasn't as polished in the animated sense. A few good chuckles and a LOT of 'delicious' scenes (concerning food, ok?).

After the movie, we visited the toy section in Parkson's and lo and behold! A Voyager Decepticon Transformers Blackout was on the lowest shelf! (To all you non-nerds; Blackout was the evil military helicopter who devastated the entire army base in Qatar in the 2007 movie trailer.) I immediately bought this toy because I remembered the bad decision of 'thinking it over' and that lost me a few good collectibles. I wonder where I can display the Transformers though...

In a fairly happy mood this evening.... :)

p.s. - I lost RM 50.00 for no apparent reason today.... I always lost something when I went out with this particular friend. No, I am not accusing him of stealing my money, but something was always missing when he is near me (a pricey keychain, a red crystal ring). Which is so weird.... I told him that he might have 'something' (supernatural) nasty around him at all times. He just laughed...

Cool toy :)
But it's not a mere toy, is it? It's more than that.

Was thinking of buying one of those mini-transformers and put it at my office cubicle. But I don't think that's a good idea.

I'd be playing with Megatron all day and making blaster sounds. Not good for the career :P

Aizan; An idea for you. Buy one of those 'My Little Pony' sets and then go haywire with their manes and tails. I know you are good with scissors and create 'My Little Baldie' instead. :)

Anyway the mini-robots are so cartoonish.
