More To Love

We watched the new Fox reality show More To Love last night. It's a good show with a lot of potential. There were also a bunch of unintentional laughs. I had a lot of fun making fat jokes, but it's ok because I'm a big dude. It's kind of like being able to say the n-word only when you're black.

It was kind of funny, because a lot of the conversation between the ladies and the guy revolved around food. Not to mention every commercial that came on was for some type of food. I guess Fox knows their target audience.

At one point, Rhea made the proclamation that they should have a reality show like this for amputees. I personally think this is an amazing idea. We would call it Out On A Limb. My only question would be whether you would have a chick looking for a man or vice versa. I don't know the stats on men vs. women amputees. The only thing I do know is, all the contestants would have to put their prostheses on a table at some point. Then, the one to go home is the one that gets their arm/leg back at the end of the night.

Movie Review Time

We hit the Red Box this weekend for a couple movies. Since we don't have the Netflix anymore, Red Box has become our movie rental device of choice. It's really cool, except the selection can be a little sparse. It never gets old threatening the wife with renting 12 Rounds, either.

We watched Confessions of a Shopaholic and The Day the Earth Stood Still. Confessions was pretty good. A little predictable as all those movies are. It kills me that Isla Fisher is married to Borat. Is there no justice in the world?!

The Day the Earth Stood Still was ok. I expected a little more in the action department and the special effects department. I think they spent all their money on Keanu. It also ended up feeling like an environmental message wrapped in an alien movie. Like, you guys better start recycling or aliens are going to come and re-boot the earth.

MechWarrior 5

I will buy it. I will play it. I will love it!

So, they're making a MacGruber movie based on the SNL character. I don't think this is a terrible idea. I'm sure it will be pretty predictable. They will have to flesh out the character, so they will probably put him into the real world. Either make the whole MacGruber thing we've seen in the skits his job, which is to say he's the star of a tv show. Then he will have to actually become MacGruber at some point to save the day. Or, he'll be a loser who lives with his parents and does the whole MacGruber thing because he's a loser, ala Hot Rod. Then he will end up saving the day in the end. Shocker!

Anyway, I'm sure I'll watch it at some point. I do love those Pepsuber commercials.

We went to Target on Saturday morning for some family photos. I think they turned out really well. We had a coupon that saved us some money.

What kills me is, they originally tried to charge us like $130 for the stuff we picked out. Mainly because of the few things we ordered that were outside the package deal. Once we removed the announcements (that were almost $50!), the price went down and we checked out.

I'm amazed that they can charge so much for one sheet. We cruise in with a coupon for $3.99 a sheet, and their normal prices are upwards of $15 to $30! What kind of profit margin is that? We all know that photo printing and paper is not that expensive. There's not a guy in a dark room developing our pictures somewhere. It's all digital. I mean, the fact that they can even offer a coupon with such a discount means that the prices are totally inflated.

Anyway, Rhys slept the whole time. Then we stroller'd around Target for a bit. Saturday night we went to Alana's for some 4th of July festivities. The food was delicious. Then we went home and crashed.
