Annie is almost like an action flick

So, have you been wondering where Amanda is? No, I didn’t jet off to Bora Bora to date three guys because 1) I’m married 2) I’m not a fame seeking whore and 3) I work for a non-profit. That’s definitely not where I’ve been. I know you’re all missing my delightful recap, but the truth is I just didn’t have it in me to watch it on my birthday because it sucks the energy right out of my body. I watched the Bachelorette online with my pal JP and I saved our conversation and will post it maybe this weekend. It’s good times.

I’m here tonight to drop off some funnies from my dear Husband. The scene: I was sleepy when I got home from work after eating way too much at lunch at the Pizza Hut lunch buffet. After struggling through a pizza coma all afternoon, I needed a resty-poo. When I woke up we went to McDonalds for dinner because my baby? He loves him some Filet of Fish sandwiches. What the heck? What kind of baby did I make? At any rate, after naps I tend to suffer from a little foggy brain, probably exacerbated by all these hormones.

While we’re there, the following conversation occurs regarding, hands down, my favorite movie of all time, 1982′s Annie, staring Eileen Quinn and the incomparable Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks.

Me: Davey [Sister's husband] watched Annie with Sis.
Hub: *snickers*
Me: What? He did!
Hub: Yeah…right.
Me: Why wont’ you watch with me?
Hub: I don’t think I’ll like it.
Me: I watch stuff with you that I don’t like! Besides, Davey liked it! He said he liked the car chases!
Hub: Car chases, I’m so sure.
Me: *getting angry* What if my only dream in life is for you to watch Annie with me????
Hub: Then I’d say you have a sad life, if that’s your biggest dream.
Me: *sigh* [pause] But there *are* car chases.
Hub: *laughs at me*
Me: And thievery and kidnapping. And helicopters. It’s veerrrry exciting!
Hub: *head in his hands*
Me: You know what it’s like? It’s like that movie Taken. *wiggles eyebrows expectantly*
Hub: I’m going to Tweet that you just said Annie is anything like Taken.

So he’s not only funny, but he puts up with my nonsense. I think he deserves a medal.

Have you seen Annie? Isn’t it the best? On a scale of  1 to 10, how close is it to being like Taken?

    Annie is soooooo good!! The irresistible songs and optimism are the only things that have gotten me through this week.

    I decided after watching Annie that I am going to start referring to everything as "swell." I have to work until 8 tonight with no lunch break and no bathroom break after about 2 PM? That's swell. I have to answer all my consultants questions because my backup is an idiot? Swell.

    I haven't seen Taken, but I would say it is probs even MORE exciting and dramatic!

  • My Husband's Watching TV...

    A medal and a copy of the movie "Annie."

    I LOVE ANNIE! I love all the music and it always scared me at the end where Annie is dangling and Punjab saves her!

    P.S. I even went to see the Annie they put on in the Ritter Ampitheater this summer!

  • Sandra

    Awww, I love husbands like that. I have one too. He lets me take compromising pictures of him so I can post them on my blog. True love. PS: I love that you do the Pizza Hut buffet till you pass out too! Between the two of us, we could clean them out!

  • Midwestern Mama Holly

    I am running toward the door as I say this, but Ive never seen the movie Annie.

  • Chicken

    The only thing that would've made that conversation better is if you and a random McDonalds worker broke out in song and dance from the movie…..real musical style.

  • Jessica

    I've never seen Annie, but now I want to. Where would I find it these days??

  • Crazy Shenanigans

    I love the 1982 version of Annie!!! It's a classic!

  • Salt

    Wow what a blast from the past. I haven't seen that movie since I was 9.

    I probably would have liked it more if I wasn't so darn afraid of Annie's hair. Seriously. It scares me in a bad way even now.

    I love that Hard Knock Life song though.

  • The Only Girl

    I do like Annie, but have no idea what Taken is. So I'll have to politety decline rating the two. My apologies.

  • Liz

    I love his comeback when you tried to corner him with your "what if this is my life's dream" line. :)

    You better see what the new WOW! is. You're gonna love it!!!

  • Hutch

    There ARE car chases, AND climbing up train tracks that go straight in the air (I get nervous every time) AND helicopter rescues. Thank God for Punjab! I've never seen Taken so I can't help you on the comparison. BUT I can recite the movie from beginning to end since I watched it 3 or 4 times a day every day when I was a kid. It's also the reason I always dreamed of being a Rockette!

  • Allyson

    I would say that Annie is EXACTLY like Taken…except with a dog. That's OK, Neal won't watch "Clue" with me and that is my all-time favorite move. And he hates "The Jerk". What kind of man did I marry anyway?? Sad. On the plus side, you got a little filet o fish AND pizza in the same day….that is sheer pregnancy bliss!

  • Tracie

    I haven't seen Annie or Taken. Apparently, I lead a sheltered life.
