It was another busy day at the café today, the whole town is full of tourists, we reckon that the economic climate is keeping all the holiday makers a bit closer to home this year.
Marisas friend who happens to be a boy came round to the house for lunch and spent the afternoon here playing with Marisa and the boys.
This evening we watched what has got to go down as one of the worst films ever made, it starred Kevin Bacon but we bet you won’t find it in his greatest hits, it was called Tremors.
The film, for those lucky enough not to have seen it but with an interest in finding out a bit about it, is about WORMS, not just any old worms, but carnivorous ones that have been around for thousands of years and have grown to be about the size of a train carriage.
The female seismologist student who happens to be pretty and working on seismic tests in the area, and who also manages to get her jeans ripped off by a carnivorous worm, turns out to be the leading authority in the field when she announces that nobody has ever seen anything like them before and that it is a great scientific breakthrough.
Firstly, she’s only a student not a professor, so how does she know that nobody has ever seen one before and as they are rather partial to a bit of human flesh and are built like a train carriage, it stands to reason that they have been getting lunch somewhere, presumably the people who were going to let everyone know about them if only they hadn’t been eaten first.
Secondly, in view of their size and appetite, why would they pick on a small town with a population of about thirteen right out in the middle of nowhere, when they could have gone to the city and dined in style.
It’s absolute garbage, the sort of thing you could get glued to at two o’clock in the morning after coming in from the pub having drunk fifteen pints, eaten the worst kebab on the planet, thrown it up in the taxi on the way home, had to walk the last two miles and tripped over the cat as you walk through the door.
Apparently they made a Tremors II as well which is going to be shown on Foxtel soon, if we can’t avoid seeing it, we’ll record it and one night when we get home at two o’clock in the morning after coming in from the pub having drunk fifteen pints, eaten the worst kebab on the planet, thrown it up in the taxi on the way home, had to walk the last two miles and tripped over the cat as you walk through the door, we’ll give it a review, or was that a rear view.
