4D Movies

Free Movies, Hulu, Movies, videos

Going to the movies with my kids is such a luxury.

The lights go out.  The movie starts.  Sometimes my youngest son lets me put my arms around him.   And then I go to SLEEP.  When I go to the movies with my kids, I get at least an hour nap and, as long as they don't notice, it's wonderful.

(I normally put one hand conveniently next to my eyes, which always guarantees my secret.)

The only time this plan backfired was when we were at Wisconsin Dells and decided to see the Noah Ark's Spongebob 4D movie.

(I did NOT know what 4D meant.)

At Noah's Ark, we walked into the theater.  We took dark glasses for the movie (very cool - no need to cover my eyes) and we sat down.  The lights went out and after a long day of walking, I was so ready for a nap.  The movie started. My eyes closed.

Suddenly, my chair moved.  I heard my kids laugh and I became startled.  My chair then started to shake to the action in the movie!

OK.

The chairs in front of me then sprayed me with every reference to water.  This was, as you can imagine, a lot since the plot is about a sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea.  Small fans whirled beneath my seat, blowing air on my ankles with every reference to creepy sea animals.  I heard both my kids and my husband howl with laughter.

OK.  

I was both amused at the sudden revelation of what a 4D movie was and annoyed that I was AWAKE.  For the rest of the movie, I gave up all hope for a nap, clung to my chair, and laughed with my family.

------------

Now that we're home - far, far away from the Dells, 4D movies, water park weather, or money for a movie theater movie - we are always searching for inexpensive entertainment (and a dark room for mom to nap).

Hulu is great place to watch free movies and TV.

Search Engines, SocialMention, WhosTalkin

Like a lot of people, Google is the start page for my browser and I use it constantly.

(... too much.)

I google my name (ego-surfing).  I google my friends names.  I google my place of employment and hometown and favorite actors and song lyrics and current news and favorite authors and poems and recipes and on and on and on.  Here are a couple NEW search engines.
