Magic School Bus

I’ve used knowledge I learned from Magic School Bus for years, I’m sure. The best episode was the one where Raphie was sick, which now that I think about it, it is extremely weird that I liked that one considering how freaked out I am about the human body.

Actually, no, the best one was when Wanda had an alligator in her bathtub, and the kids all got shrunk and explored the bathroom. It kinda permanently made me paranoid that there are little people in the toilet when I go to the bathroom. That and Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.

Seinfeld

One day, I asked my mom if the four members of our family were each one of the characters from “Seinfeld”, who would we be? My initial thoughts were Jenny = Jerry, Patrick = Kramer, Dad = George, Mom = Elaine. My reasoning was pretty dumb; basically, my dad’s bald, my brother’s wacky, my mom’s a girl, and my signature looks like “Jerry” because I refuse to put two humps on my n’s because it’s ridiculous.

My mom’s analysis was much better. My brother is George because they’re both fidgety and clean and they like to complain. My dad is Elaine because, in my mom’s words, “He’s attracted to women, and they’re attracted to him”.

House of Leaves

I asked my aunt and uncle for this book for Christmas many years before I was ready for it. I’m glad now that I was dumb in giving them the information to buy it, because I wouldn’t have understood it then. When my aunt asked who the author was, I said it was “Mark Z… something, don’t even ask how to say it”. I couldn’t give her the author’s last name, which is kind of how books are organized, you know? It’s not even that hard of a name: Danielewski. I guess it was more the Z that freaked me out and the word ending in “i”.

Ice cream

I don’t really have a favourite ice cream flavour (I am obviously Canadian though).

But seriously. I like mint chocolate chip, black cherry, orange sherbet, and the chocolate with fudge chunks in it. I’m not crazy about plain old chocolate, but vanilla is good (especially with toppings or apple pie), as is strawberry.

When I was little and went to swimming lessons, afterward, my mom would take me to the Centre Mall and buy me ice cream. I always picked this colourful kind called SuperKid, I guess because I thought I was one.

A Few Good Men (1992)

I saw this movie on November 14, 2009. Usually movies with all dudes (and sometimes, one chick) are so confusing to me because they all look the same, in their suits or uniforms or whatever, but this one wasn’t. Maybe because everybody in this movie was somebody. I like movies where everybody’s somebody. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
