Don't cross the blue dragon.

I'm frightened for my life.

There were strong gusts in our area last evening, and for some reason, the satellite for our home stopped working. The human pet sat down and decided to watch one of three DVDs she had rented: Eragon. As the movie played, my pet's face was so comical that, at first, I thought the film might just be a comedy. But when I saw the big, blue dragon on the screen, all thoughts of comparing and contrasting to the classic Puff the Magic Dragon escaped me.

"About the only thing they got right with this movie was that there was a boy named Eragon, and he had a dragon named Saphira," she exclaimed in frustration when the movie finished.

I kept my paws crossed that the television might work since two hours had passed.

The human pet went for the remote and attempted to turn it on. A blue screen popped up, stating there was no signal.

Hmm. Odd. Eragon had a blue dragon. We had a blue screen. Coincedence? I thought not.

This morning, when the human pet woke up, she checked the television again. A blue screen still appeared.

I'm not leaving this house even if my very life depended on it. Forget that!

Note to self: Even though Eragon might be a stinky movie, take no chances and keep your opinions to yourself lest you wish to have your satellite stolen by an angry blue dragon named Saphira.

Oh and here the woman wanted to see that. Maybe I better just get her the book.

Radioactive Jam said...

So I should see the movie *before* reading the book, to minimize disappointment?

Oh my gosh! A blue dragon took your TV picture away? Wow! I will keep Meowm away from that show!

Mom bought that movie on a dvd yesterday. Do you mean it's a terrible movie or that it doesn't follow the literature? Mom gets furry frustrated with movie directors and screenwriters take unnecessary liberties with literary content for what she calls "s's and g's" ...

Mommy said that dragons are just biggified lizards. Since I don't know what a lizard is, I guess I don't feel scared. But I don't want Mommy renting the movie, just the same! I'm cautious that way!

There is no way I'd ever watch that movie. The picture alone would cause me some sleepless nights!

Noted. Thanks for the warning Zeus, though [whispers] I haven't bothered with this film as I thought it looked awful when I saw the trailer. Off to check my TV now!

Is "Eragon" nerdspeak for "I can't believe you admitted to watching that?"

I'm just wondering.
