Q Is For Quit

God save the queen. ~ The Sex Pistols
I love that song. I also love Queen Elizabeth. I have a photo of her on my office wall... no joke.
Let's quit that though to talk about something else.
Quitting.
We all do it. Somehow, someway.
I quit Brownies, Navy League and Karate.
I quit high school at 17, (pregnant of course).
Not all my quits were bad things though.... some were even better for my health.
I quit smoking almost 6 and a half years ago.
I quit taking cocaine, ecstasy, crystal meth, ketamine, heroin and many other drugs almost 14 and a half years ago.
I've quit numerous other things as well, but the gist is we're all quitters. It's just how long before we quit is the question.

What is something you have quit?

  4. I did a "quitting" post, also... but mine is quitting blogging so much! I'm not getting enough exercise, and being too sedentary! This past LONG winter did not help that at all. I've gained about 7 or 8 pounds... So, I'm taking a blogging break... Maybe not absolutely quitting, but definitely taking a break...

  8. My dog is called "Queen" in Spanish (Reina). How original I know, we didn't name her.

    I "retired" from skiing. I love semantics.

    I quit brownies too! They say kicked out, I say quit :)

    Glad that your quitting means you'll be around with us for a long time yet.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
