Slapdash Sunday(6/13)

Slapdash Sunday is a day for your proverbial week 'leftovers.' Is there something you wanted to say, but just forgot? Is there something you want to write about, but isn't worth a whole page? Do you have a random thought, funny or otherwise that needs to be written down?
That is what Slapdash Sunday is for!

***********************************************************************

My friend and I were JUST talking about this the other day...

We all know that the past Karate Kid movies were by definition 'classics,' but is this new movie misleading people to believe it's the same thing as the franchise when in reality, it's completely different?

You be the judge!




It was brought to my attention yesterday that the word 'Plushie' was an interesting name for a stuffed animal, but nobody knows where it came from!

So I decided to investigate...

From the website Information on All Topics:

The word “Plush” is of French origin. What plush is exactly is a fabric that has a nap or pile that is very similar to velvet or fustian.


So Plush is basically a type of fabric ^.^

Haven't seen the new Karate Kid, but those toys remind me of beanie babies back in the day.

The original Karate Kid was a classic for sure. I haven't seen he new one.

I just started hearing about these plushies, so I don't know anything about them. Another fad.

You are just a wealth of knowledge. I love learning new things. I wasn't going to watch the new Karate Kid because I figured it was just another remake. I prefer the originals or classics. Happy Sunday!

That is an interesting name for a toy!
I'm not sure if I'll watch the new movie!
Have a great week!

I honestly have no desire to see the new Karate Kid. I wish they would stop remaking movies from my child hood.

Interesting about the plush term...I didn't know that!
