Random Tuesday Thoughts - Upside the Trolls

It's been a hot minute since I've participated in Random Tuesday Thoughts, hosted by Stacy Uncorked.  It's one of my favorite linkups.  If you'd like to post your randomness, she'd love for you to play along.

Logan and Allyson accompanied me to watch The Upside in theater last week.  It's one of the best movies I've seen in a while.  The Upside is based upon the true story of an aristocrat, a con man, and the friendship that transformed them both.  The film stars Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, and Nicole Kidman.  All three did superb in their roles.  I'd recommend that you see it.

I wasted two hours of my life watching Troll (1986), a comedy horror film.  There was nothing funny or scary about it.  It was just outright atrocious.  One interesting tidbit that I did catch when watching the film is that the teen brother's name is Harry Potter Jr.  Lo and behold, I'm not the first one to take notice.  I did some online research and, apparently, the similarity (among others) was brought up.  J.K. Rowling denies that there's any relation between the two.  I'm going to side with J.K. on this one because I'd hate to think she referenced to one of the worst movies in the world when writing her books.

So, the Rams and the Patriots are in the Super Bowl on Sunday.  Who are you rooting for?  I'm not a football fan by any means but do watch the Super Bowl every year.  I don't dislike the Patriots but I'm so over watching them play every year.

I got good news the other day.  I entered a sweepstakes through U.S. Cellular and was announced as one of the 20 grand prize winners.  My win includes an Apple iPad, an Apple Smartwatch, and one year of free phone service.  Score!

I've been having to dress up more often than usual.  I don't mind it once in a while but, I'm not gonna lie, I like the jammies and t-shirt life.  Next week calls for more days of actually caring about how I look too.  
How have you been?
What's your randomness for the week?
Seen any good (or really bad) movies lately?

Congrats on your win! That's a good prize!

I like to dress up too, but I'm like you and really dig the pajamas or leggings look more these days.
