Rango!! It's fab!! I don't know who enjoyed it more, me or my son!
It's an animated western starring Johnny Depp as Rango, a chameleon with an identity crisis. Who am I? Who am I?
He gets stranded in the desert where he meets an armidillo who's been run over trying to "get to the other side"!
This sure did tickle my bones! I've told a couple of close friends recently how desperate I am to reach "the other side".. "I want to go... over there.." I say to them pointing, erm, over there.
Rango gets a ride from Bean, a feisty female, into a town called Dirt where he makes up some stories about himself before being hailed as the heroic sheriff. The town is in the middle of a drought, and the bank, where the little remaining water is stored, is robbed. Rango pledges he will get to the bottom of this mystery and bring the water back!
At one point in the film (and I don't want to give too much away but I am about blogging and this is about me...) Rango abandons his new friends and meets the Man with No Name.
"You can't walk out on your own story," says the Man with No Name. "No man can walk out on his own story."
And I was thinking: No mum can walk out on her own story. No Stigmum can walk out on her own story.
Is that why I came back to blogging? I didn't want to as you know but I felt a pull. Almost like the only way I would not abandon the boring most boringest housing issue that's destroying my life and is poised to destroy millions of people's, would be to come back.
Might focus me....
Are me and stigs back on track following our recent problems with one another?
What's the story we have to finish stigs? You know our own housing situation depresses me so much I can't even bid for the affordable security I crave.
Oh I Don't Know! All I know is I can't walk out on my own story. I can't give up. You can't give up. We can't give up.
I've been told to paste the theme song to the film and swap "Rango" for "Stigmum"
Oh ha ha ha stigs!!
I do love the theme tune though! Go see the film!!
