I don’t usually get too excited about book to movie adaptations but I’m cautiously optimistic abut the big screen version of Simon Vs the Homosapien Agenda by Becky Albertalli.

It was a super cute book that already had a screenplay vibe and should translate quite nicely.
“Everyone deserves a great love story. But for Simon it's complicated: no-one knows he's gay and he doesn't know who the anonymous classmate is that he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, scary and life-changing.”

Florida Fall!

We’re finally getting a few cooler mornings and less humidity so I was able to get out and take a nice long walk at my favorite local park.

Fonzi got his first Starbucks Pup Cup (a cup of whipped cream)

He loves going to Starbucks and getting tons of attention but for some reason he’s never gotten the pup cup. The barista gave him a HUGE cup! I did not let him have it all and he was not thrilled but graciously shared with Indy and Figment when he got home.

    1. You need to read Simon. I really think you will like that one. It's super cute.

      I don't think Fonzi is a dress up kind of dog. Indy and Beau loved it but I may give it a try lol

  10. A pup cup! That pic is adorable, Fonzi is so cute. And I'm glad to see the weather has cooled for you so you can enjoy your local park. I am so psyched for Love, Simon. I get why they changed the name from the book to the film and I am totally hoping it's going to be awesome.

    1. I think it has the potential to be awesome. The story just lends itself to that format - more so than a lot of ones they've made. *fingers crossed*

      It's already hot again. :-( Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.

    1. We don't ever get REALLY cold for expended periods of time here. But we do have a few cold snaps. We we've gone as low as 11 degrees and we usually get a few freezes.

  14. Florida Fall is a LIE!

    And I'm getting more and more excited for Love, Simon but I don't want to jinx it. It better make me cry and have the feels in the movie theatre. That's how I"m judging the adaptation.

  15. Blue bee! Very cool!

    Love the song. It is catchy.

    I may have to take the pups to Starbucks. I have a feeling one is going to be on a strict diet soon and they might enjoy a last treat. LOL
