Animals: Both Cartoon and Real

So far this weekend has been packed full of stuff.  I'm looking forward to sleeping tonight because it didn't happen much last night.

We got out of class early on Friday for a pep rally.  Our school isn't usually the most energetic at pep rallies, but yesterday's was particularly bad.  At one point the principal actually stood up and said we wouldn't have another pep rally unless we actually participated.  Everyone cheered a bit louder after that.

Friday night was football homecoming, but some of my friends and I decided that it would be a much better idea to go see The Lion King 3D instead.  Haley's cousin Rachel, who used to go to our school but is now in college nearby, came to get Haley, Jordan, and I and drive us to the city she lives in (about an hour away).  We decided to go eat at Denny's, a restaraunt that I hadn't been to in years.  We sat there waiting for our food for at least an hour and a half.  We were going to leave, but they told us our food would be free if we stayed and waited.  Needless to say, we stayed.

The Lion King 3D was amazing!  I plan on writing or filming a review later, but if you have chance to see it, go!  I was surprised that most of the people in there were teens or young adults.  There were only a couple of parents with their young children.  When "The Lion King" came up at the beginning of the movie (after The Circle of Life) and at the end of the movie the audience started applauding.  There were also some people (or at least my friends) who were singing the songs quietly to themselves.  It was so much fun.  It was so cool to actually see The Lion King in theaters.  I was impressed by the 3D too.  I usually hate 3D, but I thought they did a really good job.  I think it's because it's not obvious 3D.  The 3D isn't even that noticeable.

After the movie, we went to Rachel's apartment, where we spent the night.  We watched most of Tangled before we fell asleep because we were so tired.  I'd been wanting to see Tangled forever!  I need to watch the whole thing sometime.

We woke up rather early this morning to meet a couple of Haley's family members at the zoo.  I hadn't been to the zoo in years, and it was so much fun.  One of the first things that we saw when we got in there was some guy with an unidentifiable animal that he was letting people pet and feed.  He told us that it was a South American porcupine.  It was so sweet and cute!  It was really cool to get to pet her.  We saw a lot of other animals too, but that was the most memorable one.

Two other fun moments from the day:  Jordan got licked on her shoulder by a giraffe.  It was hilarious.  We all saw it coming towards us so we backed up quickly.  Jordan just ducked.  It was hilarious.  There was also a bee that refused to leave us alone while we were eating our lunch.  I was the first one to get up and attempt to hide behind Haley.  Eventually, we were all up from the table while everyone else there stared at us.

It was a lot of fun.  It's time for the relaxing part of the weekend though.

P.S.  I have no idea what the title's about.  I couldn't think of anything, and remember, I got very little sleep last night.
