Day 09: Goonies, NWA, Big Baby Bron

Man, I'm putting together a nice string of lazy days here.

Amy took the girls to pick out their "good report card rewards" this afternoon while Mason took his nap. For the record, Charlotte picked out some Pokemon cards and Anna wound up with a new My Little Pony. With Mason sleeping upstairs, I killed the afternoon on the couch celebrating the 30th anniversary of another of my favorite movies -- The Goonies.

We headed out to dinner to celebrate a friend's birthday and got home just in time for the skies to open up and pound the area with a few hours of heavy rain and thunderstorms. You've heard stories about idiots who try to clean their gutters during a lightning storm? That was definitely me. With lightning flashing about every 5-10 seconds and rain pouring down in buckets, I was the guy standing on his front porch rail with his hand in the downspout. Just a small clog but probably not the smartest move on my part.

Anyway, I tried to watch Game 2 of the NBA Finals but the weather didn't cooperate. My local ABC station kept breaking in to report on some nearby tornado warnings. Our immediate area was in the clear by that point but I suppose I understand the need to keep those in danger in the know. Besides, it gave me a few minute reprieve from having to watch Baby Bron Bron cry his way through another NBA game.

That guy has got to be the biggest cry baby in the game -- complaining about every call. It's tiring. I'm glad my favorite players would never behave that way on the court.

In other news you couldn't care less about, there are two movies I'm dying to see later this summer. First, Straight Outta Compton: The Story of N.W.A, which is due out in August. I remember picking up an edited version of the Straight Outta Compton tape at Wal-Mart when I was in 8th grade and soon thereafter, getting my hands on the unedited version.

I. Was. Blown. Away.

Then shifting to a movie on the opposite end of the spectrum, The Unauthorized Full House Story will air on Lifetime later this summer. Much like last year's similar Lifetime movie about Saved By the Bell, this looks so bad that it'll be entertaining.

Can't wait to watch this train wreck.

The Summer of Tim continues...
