I'm about to inundate you with a slew of photos, but I'm doing this as a public service. A week ago, our house was invaded by the two little creatures you see in these photos. Our life hasn't been the same since.

Be warned, if these little creatures make their way into your house, they will chase you down and smother you with puppy kisses. Anthony and I have already fallen under some kind of charm spell they cast on us. We're a lost cause. But the rest of you, save yourselves.

Also, meet Krystle and Alexis. ;)))

Movie Review Monday

Due to a very busy schedule last week, I didn't get a chance to write up a movie review. In lieu of a new movie review, I give you one from around this time last year. Enjoy your movie watching, everyone! :)
 
Movie Review Monday 

Her (2013) - It’s hard to classify this film. I would venture to call it a sci-fi/drama/rom-com. The story revolves around Theodore, a lonely writer who forms a deep relationship with an artificially intelligent operating system known as Samantha. Scarlett Johansson did a great job as the voice of Samantha, and Joaquin Phoenix gave an outstanding performance as Theodore. In all, I found this to be a very well-produced film with a delightful, humorous and thought-provoking story. The relationship that develops between Theodore and Samantha is at once strange yet beautifully familiar. And even as the film portrays ways in which technology has the potential to isolate us from each other, it also gives us a remarkable example of how it can help us grow and become better social beings. I'd give it a 10 out of 10.

An older but interesting opinion piece.

The Gist: The current U.S. birth rate is too low to keep the population stable. If the issue isn’t addressed, the U.S. will shift considerably toward a smaller, much older population. Retirees don’t work, but they do consume — drawing pensions and requiring health care, which can create a significant challenge for how to support them. More liberal immigration policies might go a long way to stabilizing the population by reducing the ratio of retirees to workers. Migrants tend to arrive as young workers, so the recipient country gets the instant benefit of a larger working-age population without the expense and delay of rearing workers as children.
Donald Trump is wrong: Immigration isn’t a problem—it’s the solution to a shrinking, aging U.S. population

Sister made the mistake of reaching for the last box of Thin Mints at the Girl Scout stand in front of Walmart.

This is an older article, but I found it interesting enough to share.

The Gist: Thousands of mobile apps were found to secretly run ads in the background that can't be seen by users, slowing down both Android and iOS devices and defrauding marketers who pay for the ads. Some of the apps cited are lesser-known Android game apps like Waxing Eyebrows, Celebrity Baby, and Vampire Doctor. These apps have since been suspended from the Google Play store. Another unnamed app is a breastfeeding app for iOS devices, but the article didn’t mention whether that app had been suspended. The proliferation of these rogue, hidden ad apps is small (1% of devices in the U.S. were discovered to have them), but it is something to keep in mind if you notice an app significantly slowing down your device or crashing often, or if you notice a big spike in your mobile data usage.
Advertisers lose over $850 million per year to invisible fraud within mobile apps

Movie Review Monday

Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) - A young college senior finds herself drawn to a rich and powerful business man with a secret sexual life. Not having read the wildly popular book, I can only speculate that something was lost in translation to the big screen. While the film seemed intent on pushing the envelope on sexual proclivities, the risks it took weren’t terribly impressive. What could have been an interesting journey into the psyches and sexual desires of the two main characters ended up being a plodding trod through a not-so-interesting mix of rom-com and erotica. Moreover, the shades of Grey -- as representing the multiple facets of the main character’s personality -- didn’t seem to make it out of the single digits. Much less fifty. I'd give it a 3 out of 10.

Huevos over easy topped with a mexi-blend of shredded cheese and Cholula sauce. A side of veggie sausage and warm tortillas. Anthony knows how to get a Saturday morning started.

Happy breakfasting, y'all. :)
