Pizza, Salad, and a Movie: The Secret Life of Pets

This weekend’s Pizza Toppings at Corner Pizza:

  • Capers
  • Jalapeños
  • Green Olives


I had the spinach salad.


The Secret Life of Pets

This film was laugh-out-loud, very entertaining, sweet and lovable – kind of like Toy Story but with pets (and not just dogs). I really liked the cat (and I don’t really like real cats), and I loved all the dogs, especially the poodle. It was very funny and very cute. Next time, we’re going for an action/thriller (probably Jason Bourne), but I’m glad we saw Pets.

The pizza: Yes, we are still on a salad-for-me and jalapeños-for-him on the pizza (taking lots of it home) while I’m boycotting pizza. I suggested the other two toppings (I was thinking, why not do all green?) and he liked the idea.

He said it was tasty. So was my dinner, which was pretty green, too.

Pizza and a Movie: Inside Out

This weekend’s Pizza Toppings at Corner Pizza:

  • Bacon
  • Black Olives
  • Capers



Inside Out

Call it our BBC pizza, and like the British (maybe), it was a bit salty. I didn’t tell my husband, but I had mentally selected the toppings before we arrived (I don’t know why, but they just randomly occurred to me). When it was time to place our order, though, he agreed to my choices. We had talked about another vegetarian pizza, but bacon seemed appealing, for some reason.

You can hardly see the capers, but they’re there. And we hadn’t had black olives in forever.

The two of us had decided earlier on what film to see. We love Pixar, and I was expecting another Toy Story-like experience. I liked Inside Out a lot, and it was very clever, but was just a tad less good than Toy Story (any of them). It was funny and heartfelt, however; you may have heard that some of the characters are actually the main character’s feelings.

If you ever had to move when you were a kid but didn’t want to (I have), you’ll relate to it. All in all, I thought the movie was well done and very enjoyable, and it had a satisying ending. As a bonus, all the feelings had (sometimes, surprisingly) important roles…

There was one scene in particular I found very funny (but there were many). This isn’t a spoiler, but it had to do with remembering people’s phone numbers, the names of presidents, and a vacuum cleaner, of sorts. That’s all I’ll say about that. 🙂

Final verdict: entertaining, funny, and well-written. On the pizza: tasty, and unusual. Both were memorable, and evoked very good feelings.
