What the Efff is TRON?!

So as I'm peeing this evening after tucking Shorty in post stories, I hear this rattle rattle, paper sounding noise that seems to go on for evah! I think, what is that? And then I hear the hubs say, I've got my costume...come see. I tell him he'll have to hang on a sec cuz i'm mid stream.

I wash my hands and make way to the bedroom....a full 12 feet at least. Yeah, long walk. I know. And what do I see? Hubs has a large piece of paper over him with some black lines and the word, "TRON". I say, what is tron? He's like, uh, what? And I'm like totally trying to not make fun of his "costume" for his sister's 80's party on Friday.

So back to TRON. He says something that I don't understand and I am trying to get him to understand that I simply don't have the foggiest as to what the fuck he's talking about. (at school I'd tell the children I have no schema for TRON and then we'd work to build our schema together)

So...back to TRON. I know I could google it, but enlighten me readers reader. What the hell is TRON?! And I'd like to mention....hubs was reading over my shoulder trying to bully me into making changes to my post. I just told him to, "post a comment, it's my effing blog".

Nuff said, what the hell is TRON?

And we'll be back to sweet posts tomorrow about how my once baby is a grown up girl.

Fron Wikipedia:
"Tron is a 1982 Disney science fiction film starring Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn (and his counterpart inside the electronic world, Clu), Bruce Boxleitner as Alan Bradley (and Tron), Cindy Morgan as Dr. Lora Baines (and Yori) and Dan Shor as Ram. David Warner plays the villain, Ed Dillinger (and Sark), as well as providing the voice of the Master Control Program. It was written and directed by Steven Lisberger. Tron has a distinctive visual style, as it was one of the first films from a major studio to use computer graphics extensively."

What Caine said! I had to Google it. However, if John had been home, I'm sure he'da known. Dork!

Happy Birthday to Shorty! Four is such an important age!

Caine, cool choice for the party! I don't know (have a clue yet!) what I/we will do.

Alright, I just typed this long description of Tron for you, and my frigging computer deleted it, so here goes again...

First of all, TRON is sweeeeeeet, and I can't believe you never saw it! Jamie and I used to play like we were in "Tron" - we were sorta dorks. So in the movie there's this guy who is actually a bad guy who gets zapped into his work computer and forced to participate in computer games as one of the players - kinda like a gladiator. The costumes are total 80's awesomeness, all glow in the dark n' stuff. You should pay a visit to your friendly neighborhood Blockbuster right this second!
