Martin and I rented this movie last weekend. I'm not going to go on and on about it, I am just going to say that if you're reading this right now you HAVE to promise yourself that you will see this movie. Watch it with the people you love, but maybe not the little ones...there are some pretty heavy issues covered here.
This is the story of a group of kids living in Uganda who are preparing to go to a national music competition. It is both heartbreaking and triumphant. Amazing, incredible and so emotional. This is one of those films that stays with you, and also really puts your life into perspective.
If I could rent it for you and bring it to your house and put it in your DVD player myself I would, but I can't, so you'll have to do it yourself. I promise that it will be worth the bit of effort and money...I'm telling you, you have to see it.
OK, so don't get me wrong, I love those yummy, flaky, buttery goodies as much as the next person, but look what I got in my inbox today:
Are you kidding me? I'm going to give my Mom 3 months of croissants? Do people actually do this kind of thing? Three deliveries of frozen croissants for Mom, for Mother's Day? So she eats croissants for three months, gains 30 pounds then goes to the doctor with a clogged artery? Nice.
Not for me, but I had to open it...just to see how the hell they are selling this as a Mother's Day gift.
Does this cut it for some people? Three UPS deliveries of frozen croissants...and they cost $89!
OK people, if you've got $89 to spend on Mom do yourself and your Mom a favor...take her out for a really nice lunch for goodness sake, get her a massage, spend some quality time with her, but for God's sake PLEASE don't send her frozen croissants!!! What the ?
