Tempestuous Tuesday recap
The other night we decided to go see some movies back to back. I needed dumb comedies and since two were playing in succession, we figured let's go for it. First was Vacation which when we heard they were doing one, we immediately boycotted. But as time went on and we saw the trailer, we thought it could be funny.
We. were. wrong.
Top three worst movies I've ever seen and I've seen some movies that were pure dung. First, Rusty (the only TRUE Rusty, Anthony Michael Hall) would've never grown up to be the character Ed Helms was playing. Second, the kids in this movie were completely unlikable and the smaller one needed to be, well I can't write it on here in this PC world. Third, the writing was atrocious. It was like they had a contest for sophomore boys to write scenarios and one liners to be as raunchy as possible. I'm a fan of raunch when done properly, this was not. Even the cameos by Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo were lame and an appearance by an old favorite couldn't save it because they messed that intro up too. So yes, this Vacation DOES stand on its own...as one of the worst movies ever to grace the big screen. Trailer duped.
Then we saw Ted 2. Now I'm not a huge fan of the first one. It was funny but I didn't need to own it or anything but we saw it got way worse reviews than Vacation so we weren't confident. Within three minutes we were laughing and loving the raunchy jokes, inappropriate content and just letting loose laughing. It's exactly what you expect from that franchise and if you're expecting anything else, you're at the wrong movie. If you liked the first one, you'll probably like the second one and if not, trust me, it's better than Vacation.
It was nice to just get out of my head space and focus on stupidity for a night.
The internet was bouncing for us yesterday and since the Mr was teleworking, he kind of needs that to do his job. I encouraged tomfoolery and he made the call. We got my license renewed. That is always the quickest way to make you feel like you need a shower. The finest in the city were in full force. Then we went to check out a potential launch site and park. We were already in the historic district so we decided to walk it for our workout. Holy crap, it was so friggin' hot out that we were instantly zapped of energy. The sun was just beating down on us and we had to cut it a little short because I thought I might ignite. Plus we walked a little at the park so I'm fairly certain we got in our 3 miles.

Dinner was chicken quesadilla and mixed veggies.
