I watched A Cry In The Dark today. OK, not the whole thing. I just wanted to see the part when Meryl Streep said “a dingo took my baby!” I’ve never seen the movie before.
This reminded me of Joders, who said that she could never wear a t-shirt that said “A Dingo Took My Baby” because she lives in Australia and she’d be tarred and feathered. I don’t really understand why that is. Maybe I should watch the rest of the movie.
After the movie the Rizzutos went to the Staten Island Zoo. Dante’s birthday was this week and he said he wanted to go there. This also reminded me of Joders because we passed by Staten Island Chuck’s house. Staten Island Chuck is the groundhog that they drag out every Groundhog Day, except that he doesn’t get as much press as Punxutawney Phil.
Anyway, it reminded me of Joders because she and I once had a discussion about Groundhog Day and I was embarrassed that she knew Chuck’s name and I didn’t, seeing as how she lived in Australia and I live right down the street from him and everything. At least I think that was Joders. Maybe it was Janers. I don’t know, memory is the first thing to go.
You thought this post was going to be about Miranda Kerr, didn’t you?
Speaking of zoos, dingos and Australia, I was looking at some of our old videos of when Dante was a tot. There was one of us at the Cohanzick Zoo in New Jersey. Do you know what they have at the Cohanzick Zoo that I totally forgot about? A singing dingo. No, really. Just wait till I get that video digitized. Look for a post called “Miranda Kerr’s New Career.”
And speaking of Miranda Kerr and Australia, look what Mr. Rizzuto found at the liquor store:
It’s Australian. Mr. Rizzuto said that the dog on the red wine looked more like a dingo, and if he had thought about the dingo joke he’d have gotten that one instead. Oh well.
We’re going out for ice cream now. Well, they’re going to eat ice cream, I’m going to watch. Laters.
