Goudy...Grr...

I just found that the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini is set in 12-point Goudy. I have always harbored a secret admiration for the font that Paolini writes in, and as soon as I realized that it was Goudy, I dashed down wildly to my computer to see if I could download it for free.

After much fruitless searching, I found it...

...and it cost $26. *growl* I asked my dad, and of course he was like, "We are not spending 26 bucks so that you can download a font." :D I wasn't surprised, and he held firm even after I offered to pay for it myself.

*sigh* so I guess I won't be able to have the font Paolini has... :D

Oh, and Hannah Martin: CHECK YOUR MESSAGES AND CALL ME BACK!! :D

Today, my grandparents have been over all day: and we went to the movie Up...




And I have to say...

...IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was SO great! And I'm serious: SO GREAT!!! It balanced its tear-jerking scenes (I actually started tearing up over this animated movie :D), happy scenes, and action, edge-of-your-seat scenes. Literally, in some parts of the movie, I was so agitated I felt like screaming.

It's rated PG, but because of it's action. There's no blood and gore or anything, just action. Overall, I TOTALLY recommend seeing it. It's completely little-kid friendly, and yet adults and older kids are transfixed by it...at least I and the rest of my family was. It's worth seeing. :D
