Dustin doesn't get dressed for two days and watches more animated holiday shorts.

Evelyn and I haven't gotten dressed this whole weekend. We put up the Christmas tree downstairs and we've been listening to Christmas music (She & Him Holiday station on Pandora is pretty good) and playing with all the Christmas toys and decorations. It's been a good weekend, actually.

When Evelyn woke up from her nap today, I didn't feel like watching another episode of Dora the Explorer, so I compromised: Kung Fu Panda Holiday. This is now the third holiday short I've watched in the last week on Netflix. It was okay. I'm glad it was only 26 minutes long. I remember being a bit dissapointed when I watched the original Kung Fu Panda. I think there's some more holiday animated shorts that I'll check out with Evelyn this month, she seems to like them.

Do any of you like the Kung Fu Panda movies? Is the 2nd one worth seeing?


  1. I've never seen the Kung Fu Panda movies, but I'd kind of be interested (I actually rented the video once, but someone had just recorded it in a theater, and there were Russian subtitles and it was dubbed into Spanish).

    And I vote that you can't count these on your Flickchart! :)

    Finally, how does it work that you've not gotten dressed all weekend? I'm not judging you, but I'm wondering about the logistics. Did you bathe? Wash your face? Put on deo?

  2. We've had this conversation about adding short films to Flickchart. I believe you are guilty, too. They are available to you, too, so, by all means, watch them. It's easier to watch it with a kid, so... I'll just stop there.

    Yes, I did bathe. Yes, I washed my face. Yes, I put on deo. I didn't listen to Dio, though. For shame.

    1. No, you misunderstand. I'm saying they shouldn't count for YOU. I don't have any trouble embracing a double standard here, so why are you being difficult?

      And the circumstances of your non-dressing don't sound as skeevy as I thought before. Thanks.

  3. The only part I liked about Kung Fu Panda was when they talk about having the "noodle dream" because I often dream of eating noodles. Mmmm, noodles.

  4. I liked both of the Kung Fu Panda movies a lot more than I thought I would. However, I'm a sucker for Asian culture so it doesn't take much for me to get involved in a film like that. Plus I thought the animation was fun and creative even if some of the jokes did fall flat. But if you liked the first movie, you'd probably like the second one a fair bit.
