I won!

I was searching for pictures from Wallace and Gromit this morning, particularly for today's post, when I won on Blingo! It was just a movie ticket, but I haven't won anything in a very long time, so I was surprised. Because I signed up through Stephanie's link, she won too. How great is that? While I haven't seen a movie in the theater in four and a half years (no joke), I might just have to do something outrageous now and actually go out for a movie! Actually, I've been wanting to take Tommy to his first movie theater movie, now that he is four, so maybe we'll wait for just the right one and use it for that. Any good suggestions?

With all the excitement (okay, I know it's not that big of a deal), I have forgotten what it was that I wanted to say about Wallace and Gromit. I will say, though that my favorite short is A Grand Day Out (above). Tommy, of course, likes the train scene from The Wrong Trousers (below). After all, how can you go wrong with a movie that ends with the on-train capture of a wanted penguin jewel thief, where the penguin ends up flying through the air and landing with a quick "pop," inside a milk bottle, which just landed in the hands of a dog who, less than a second ago, crashed into the kitchen cupboards? Nick Park is brilliant.
