1) Do not wear eye makeup to a Pixar movie. Ever. Yeah, I made that mistake when I went to Toy Story 3. I'm fairly sure my friend and I were the only people crying at the end, but I'm also fairly sure that everyone could hear us. Man, how the years go by, huh? We grew up with Andy!
2) Rubbing your ears helps you relax. Or so the radio told me yesterday. You are supposed to press your ears against your head 4-5 times and then rub the hard bony part on the backs of your ears for 20 seconds. I don't know if this actually works or if it's a placebo thing because now I expect it to happen. Oh, the funny things you learn on the radio.
3) The Hobbit is getting a new director. Remember how they were going to make The Hobbit into two movies and Guillermo del Toro was supposed to direct with Peter Jackson producing? Yeah, well, because I periodically Wikipedia Lord of the Rings, I found that del Toro apparently backed out in May. I was kind of sad until I read that Peter Jackson is now in negotiations to direct, which makes me very, very happy. I was feeling skeptical that anyone else could pull of a good book-to-movie adaptation, but I have no doubts that if Jackson does The Hobbit, it won't disappoint. Plus, lots of original cast members are coming, including Sir Ian McKellan (!!!!!!). To date, I don't believe anyone has made a movie adaptation that is equal or better than the original book, except for Lord of the Rings. I can enjoy Harry Potter and the Chronicles of Narnia movies, but they just don't measure up to the books in the slightest. Don't even get me started on Twilight.
Also, listen to this because it makes you happy (Concerning Hobbits):
Secret: You know how everyone always wants to be an elf because they're all pretty and can shoot arrows and stuff? I always wanted to be a hobbit.
