Disney Nature’s Monkey Kingdom; Sometimes You Just Need To Kid Out

So last time Mr. F was home while I was at work he ordered a pizza, wing, and fry combo to arrive shortly after I got home from work. So sweet, right? Even sweeter, it came with a 2 for 1 Cineplex coupon and since he was leaving to go back to work before we would get a chance to use it he said I could use it with my BFF while he was gone, so that I could still do things “on him while he was gone” is the reason he gave. Such a sweety.

But anyways, Me and my BFF and another friend went and saw the late showing of Monkey Kingdom, the new Disney Nature film. And to be honest, I have mixed feelings about it.

BTW me and my friends were the only ones in the theater that’s why I took pictures at the beginning!!!!!!!!!!!

It was a very cute story line and did have amazing shots of the beautiful landscape of Sri Lanka, however the narration… It kinda killed me.

Tina Fey narrated it, which would normally be great for any nature show… but for adults, not so much for children. Monkey Kingdom is a childrens movie, I know, but the narration was pretty corny and knowing it was Tina behind the voice made it even cornier… Mainly because I feel in my soul she was dying to burst out the monkey boned jokes. I feel like if they wanted a celeb to narrate it they should have gotten someone sweet and harmless like Anne Hathaway.

I saw they make an adult version of Monkey Kingdom, but this time Tina Fey does her own narration… Maybe even pull in Amy Poehler for some back vocals on the monkeys, lol.

However all in all it was a good, cute, children’s movie…… Has nothing on Lion King though….

If you have kids they will love it or if you just like animal shows you probably will too!

Happy blogging and happy movie watching!

Beautiful days at the Zoo are good for the soul..

So one of the very, very, few upsides to Mr,.F working far away for 28 days at a time is that I do get a lot of free time to spend with my friends. Having that 4 week period that I can’t hang out with him at all and can hang out with my friends as much as I want is actually good for me because in past relationships I tend to spend all time possible with him and then we both ended up isolating ourselves from our friends in the end. However balancing the phone calls when he’s gone, and the struggle of hanging out with friends, his and mine, when he is home is a post for another day. This one is mainly about how even though it sucks big time that he’s gone, there still is light in the dark, sometimes very lonely, tunnel. This post is also about all the cute animals I saw yesterday went I went to the by donation zoo in Peterborough, Ontario. It was great, we each dropped 5 bucks in the donation box and took a tour of the park.

The bobcat was cute, and my brave friend grabbed a stick and got him to come over to the fence and play with us. I felt bad leaving him because he’s the only one in the park that is by himself… And it kinda reminded me of when I have a bunch of friends come over to the apartment when Mr. F is gone and when they all leave and I’m just kinda sitting there like…. What now?

The whole time we were looking at the monkeys we could hear this god awful ratchet coming from inside their little hut then finally out walks these 2 playas. They were cute every time we would walk away they would start freaking out and then when we would come over they would just turn their backs to us or just tilt back and forth on their peg lol. image

This big guy didn’t want anything more than to break through this fence lol.

These friggen things were creepy, but surprisingly they photograph pretty well. In reality they look like raptors from Jurassic Park but in the picture it looks kinda cute. It is not.

image (1)All I have to say about this guy is… I want to see your peacock peacock peacockcockcockcock…..because for all the female peacock simulation in the world we could not get him to show his feathers.

He is a beautiful blue though

The best of them all was the otters. They were cute, one was playful the other one was being a lil bish and hissing at her boyfriend. I’ll get more into it in a post when I’m ticked at Mr. F. But this is a picture of the nice otter, probably thinking “Is this how you wanted our Wednesday to go Sheryl?” lol
