I used to like playing the video game when I was a kid.
But the video game was just a silly send-up of King Kong and Godzilla movies. Now you want to base a movie on it? It makes me think of The Producers movie that was based on The Producers Broadway play that was based on The Producers movie. Are you kidding? How do things like this happen?
The worst part was, I looked around and saw that a bunch of people had brought their own lunches, or stuff from Subway, or Whattaburger or whatever. I didn't know that was an option! I figured you weren't invited if you weren't paying the $4 and eating the cafeteria food. That experience could have been so much better.
Saw a news story where an adult man was being interviewed, and I was horrified to find out that his name was Timon.
Someone please jump in and tell me that Timon is actually a common name in Africa and that the story writers from Disney did a lot of research in preparing that movie so that I'll feel better about the fact that someone named their child after a character from a Disney movie.
But then I'll have to tell you that the guy was white.
So, hopefully, at that point, you can jump in and tell me that there are lots of white people living in Africa and that it's perfectly normal for a white dude to be named Timon.
I could really use having this conversation right now to restore my faith in humanity. What I could really do without is someone telling me that their child is named Pumba, or that they know someone who named their kid Eeyore.

We waited way longer than we should have, as we always do, because repairmen are usually expensive. But finally, we got one out this morning. He looked for a few seconds, then said, "did you know your dishwasher is on a switch? This light switch here turns the power on and off to the dishwasher, and it's turned off."
So, we've been living without a dishwasher for months, and even bought a whole new one which wasn't cheap, because the switch that didn't seem to do anything had turned our dishwasher's power off.
