Eggs in 3D

Eggs, eggs, eggs! I just had a bacon & egg toasted sandwich for breakfast and it was gooooooood. I just feel like eating eggs these days. Weird. Anyway, stepping off from that completely random topic, we went to go watch Ice Age 3 (in 3-D!) last night at the cinema. And I have to say WOW. Seriously.

My first experience with 3-D was in those dinosaur magazines my parents used to buy us as kids. You know, the ones that were all educational and came packaged with glow in the dark build-your-own dinosaur skeletons and 3-D glasses to "see the dinosaurs come to life!" Well, they stood out from the page a little, but they didn't "come to life". Of course, at that stage I thought it was the coolest thing out, and my brother and I used to take turns peering through those red and green lenses and marvelling over the magic of 3-D.
But 3-D in a movie? That was unheard of.

Until recently.

Everyone's been talking about the new Ice Age movie in 3D and I was a little bit curious, but to be honest, in the back of my mind I thought it wasn't going to be such a big deal. Boy was I wrong! The experience is something unlike anything else I've ever seen. To be fair, it's a bit disorientating at first and you tend to recoil a bit when something leaps out of the screen and (seemingly) flies straight at you. It's like the characters are living in some unknown-until-now space between the screen and yourself, the movie-goer. I really felt immerged in the movie; I imagine this is similar to how TheHusband feels about surround-sound. (As for me, I just don't get it. Yeah I know, I know...)

Of course, we felt a bit like dorks in those Buddy Holly-esque glasses they hand you at the entrance. But dorks are the new black, so we're going with it.
Besides, we're going to be saving them for our future mini-me's who will one day, no doubt, think they are very funny and hideously old-fashioned.

But then, 60 is the new 40, so I'm sure we won't mind too much at that (wrinkly) stage.

Legen... wait for it.... DAIRY!

Okay I've been watching too much How I Met Your Mother. But I thought the phrase was very appropriate for what I'm about to announce. Yes, dear friends, I am DEBT-FREE!!! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-ha! Also I'm 2 weeks shy from turning 27 and that marks some significant changes that will be taking place... but more on that later. At the moment I feel terrific, due in part to the new exercise regime we (that is TheHusband and I) have embarked on. Although, I guess one always feels good at the start of something like this. It's the keeping-it-up part that's usually the clincher... But I'm confident that this time we won't be giving it up. Getting started in winter is probably the most difficult time, so if we can make it through, it will be plain sailing come summer time and it's longer sunshine-y days.

I iz gymbunneh... Well, maybe not quite!
