Brave Story!

I'm officially on summer vacation now and what better way to start it off than with a trip to the Clinic for an inflamed throat and heat rash? I have my ton o' drugs and am now on the road to hale & heartiness. Since I was downtown, I dropped into a few old haunts and a few new ones.

Lunch was at Sasebo Burger, 880¥ for an Avocado Burger, fries, salad, dessert & a drink. Yummy!

I popped into Daiei Depato and picked up a Hawaiian shirt on sale yet I considered picking up one of these Kitty/Kiss knockoffs but they were a little pricey.

I had some time to kill so I wondered through the UFO Catcher Centres looking for some Bat-goods and was finally rewarded with a Batman High Stage Figure. It retails for 25$ and I dropped about 20 bucks trying to win it, so I guess I came out ahead. I also popped over to Frozen Garden for a cold frosty one. It took a bit of getting used to licking one's way through head to get to a beer and honestly, it wasn't that tasty. But I bumped into a Bridge partner and got to ogle passers-by so it all worked out.

My ultimate destination was the Cineforum in Bivi in order to see a flick.

First up was a Toy Story short:, Small Fry. I don't know about you, but I'd be all over some of these Kid's meal toys!

We had another short, La Luna. Very cutsie but not really my cup of tea until the final shot. That made it for me.

The main feature was "Brave" or as it's known in Japan, メリダとおそろしの森, Merida and the Haunted Forest. I'd picked up some advance preview tickets a while ago with a few goodies (shown at that link.) I simply adored this movie, best Powerful-Pixar-Princess Production ever!  I went with the Yvonnderful Wonderful-Yvonne and gave her one of the Merida straps that I'd acquired when I bought the tix. I also picked up some sticky-notes & clear files for my collection.

Wednesday is the First and thus cheap movie day. Go for it!

Hope you are feeling better!!

I can't believe Sasebo Burger made it all the way up there. I love them. Also a huge fan of the Le Grand Tomato going on at Maccers now.

Glad you enjoyed Brave. I can't wait to see it but refuse to pay money for something dubbed out of English. So DVD for me (okay, probably US iTunes).

If you hunt around, you should be able to find it in English. I went to a little Indie cinema and the 2D was English, the 3D was Japanese. I don't think I missed anything by the lack of another dimension.
I usually only eat Happy sets from Mcs but I may check out the Tomato.
