Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before. . .

I have no idea where my books are, and because he completely forgot to look up the tracking number last night, neither does he. My brilliant plan to review those comics, then actually get the Year in Review posts done before the end of January for once is pretty much shot. So that sucks.

Let's see, something else to mention. There's a Paddington the Bear movie out now. I have some vague memories of watching the cartoon when I was much younger, probably around the same time I watched Danger Mouse, but I don't have any particular nostalgia for it. I did read a review, that mentioned that in the film he joins this British family, but the teenage daughter is worried about this, because she thinks it will make her less popular at school.

This makes no sense to me. Having a talking, hat-wearing bear living with you seems like it would make you more popular. Admittedly, it has been a long time since I was in high school, and I was never one of the popular kids (nor am I British or a girl), so maybe it's a much different circumstance. Still, a polite bear as a houseguest would appear to be quite the status symbol. None of the other kids would be able to say they had one.

Never really was into Paddington, but oh GOD, I did love Danger Mouse!
