This evening we started our Amicus Film Season by watching Happy Feet, an animated tale of a penguin called Mumble whose struggle for acceptance leads him into all kinds of hot water. The film went down very well with some excellent lines (see below) and themes of acceptance, community, sacrifice, environmentalism, politics, perseverance, courage, faith, truth, worship…
Random quotes from Happy Feet:
“there is a wisdom that stands above all others”
“that just ain’t pengiun”
“funky little fella”
“first you’ve got to eat a pebble”
“give praise to the great Guin!”
“man, this guy is so accidentally cool!”
“I don’t care where you come from, that has got to hurt!”
“I must retire now to my couch of perpetual indulgence”
“Let me tell something to you: this is the end of the road – you did everything penguinly possible”
We also celebrated Flic’s 15th birthday by eating her birthday cake – thanks Flic and Happy Birthday! It was a double celebration as we welcomed back a founding Amicus member, and one of our newest Amicus members, Simon and Andy. Welcome back! We ended the evening with a very energetic, competitive but good natured game of ‘pivot-ball’. Well played all round.
Please pray for everyone doing revision and exams over the next month: that they’ll be able to focus, manage the workload and the pressure, and that they will be able to do their best. Thanks
Next Week: Pirates and Pizza evening at Ricky & Tracy’s. We’ll be watching Pirates of the Caribbean (2): Dead Man’s Chest and eating Pizza. Sound good? See you there… If you need a lift please let us know by Tuesday lunchtime. Also, if you are coming please also let us know by Tuesday lunchtime so we can make sure we have enough pizza and beverages.
Finally, as we’ve been all penguiny tonight, I thought I’d continue the theme with an excellent episode of Pingu (especially for Lucas!):
