X Is For Xcited

It really does makes nice sounds... watch this video and see!


But I am eager, no Xcited to share with you something funny. At least, to me it was.
Meet the parrot.
Not sure what his/her name is, and at that moment it didn't matter. 
Was visiting Ruffins pet store a while back. I always wander around looking at the birds, fish and whatever animals they have there. As I hit the bird aisle, this parrot starting going ape-shit! And I mean total ape-shit! It was like he/she was squawking at me to set him/her free. He/She had this high-pitched screech and though you would think I would be bothered, I became quite enamored.
The longer I stood in front of his/her cage, letting him/her have their childish fit, the more he/she gradually calmed down. All it took was a stare-down.
Now, I know I have a thing for birds, but is this a new thing to be a bird whisperer??? 
Move over Caesar. There's a new whisperer in town.

Have you had any experiences visiting the pet store that stand out?

  1. I rarely go to the pet store and I usually just pick up fish food and get the fishes, so no funny experiences.

  7. I once went to a pet store just to have some fun looking around and went home with a parakeet. I named him Pancho, and we had some good times together.

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 …
