jiminy cricket and the temple of doom

Santa brought a pile of books for under the tree. As we were cleaning up the ornaments (whee! I put the tree away today!) Rosey espied them again and jumped to grab them, sorting out which ones must be read immediately and which could wait a few minutes.

She sat on the floor, busily telling me the titles of her stocking-full of Disney books.

'Mama! See! There's Ariel, and Nemo, and Cinderella, and Indiana Jones, and Woody and the dogs and those lions and the Incredible people.'

I wasn't listening, really, I was busy battling the tree back in the box and trying to remember how in hell I had put all this stuff in the box to begin with. (The plan for next year? TWO full-sized trees. And bigger boxes.) But something caught my attention.

'Indiana Jones?'

She showed me the cover.

Well, she did get the hat right......

Just think: only 360-some days and you can do it again!

Jiminy Cricket and the Temple of Doom would likely be better than the original.

You know I always said there was something very wooden about Harrison Ford's acting....

Ha! Can I just tell you that I've finally seen the 4th Indiana Jones movie and it sucked. Pinocchio would kick it's ass.
