It must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays

Last night I watched The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy for the first time.

Your gasps are audible. 
Yes, I know it is a crying shame.
I've been busy. 

But yesterday, as I was standing in the shower, just to relax after a long day,
 Flip starts screaming down the passage way that the movie is about to start in two minutes.
I kid you not, but he managed to heat last night's leftovers for dinner,
and pop the most delicious popcorn. 
All in two minutes. 

Yes he is amazing.
So was this scene/

But before I go off on a tangent, let's talk Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. I don't really know what to think about it. I hate it and I love it all at the same time.

The imagery.
The amazing, yet so confusing dialogue. The words.
The quirky characters.
The crazy situations.
The funny shapes the ship took everytime they traveled through space.
Marvin the manically depressed superbrain.
I love this most!

But then the mockery of Christianity came along.
And I was undecided. 
Also, I'm a creationist, so seeing how earth was 'created' in the movie, also upset me.
But I have to give kudos to the genius behind the book Douglas Adams.
That a brain like that had to rot, for shame!

One last thing. Poor Whale!
