We got home from church today and The Shortlings wanted to do something together,  like... play a game...  maybe that one where you look for things in the pictures.  And since one of the comments in church today was, "a good thing to do, might be to actually spend some time with your children instead of just plopping down in front of the television and watching a movie," we decided to... you know... plop down in front of the television and watch a movie.  We're nothing if not contrary.

For some, unknown reason - probably that reason involves the $5 bin at some big box, low budget, department store - we own a copy of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.  So we pulled that one out and vegged out in front of the TV with the kids for a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon.

There is a minimum data set for cultural education in this house.  It involves Charlie Chaplin movies, modernist art, Humphrey Bogart, live symphonic orchestral concert attendance, music written by Stravinsky, works by Lewis Carroll, and 80s movies.

I told some friends we were doing this and immediately, the response was, "Awesome! How is it being received?"

You tell me.
