Wallace & Gromit

For some reason, I was really hyper yesterday. And I had absolutely nothing to do and no one to hang out with because Anisha isn't here yet! But after dancing around my room and swimming laps and two hours of yoga, I finally calmed down enough to watch a movie. And that is when I remembered that I love Wallace & Gromit!

Wallace is an inventor, and he lives with his dog Gromit at 62 West Wallaby Street. They are super-adorable because Wallace is kind of clueless and loves Wensleydale cheese, and Gromit is really smart and good with electronics and likes to knit and cook and read really intense books like The Republic and Crime and Punishment. There are four Wallace & Gromit short films, and they are all adorable. The most recent one was A Matter of Loaf and Death, and it was so adorable!

The first one I ever saw was The Wrong Trousers, which I think is one of the best ones. It came out in 1993, and my dad took (five-year-old) me to a film festival and that's where we discovered Wallace & Gromit for the first time! I have loved them ever since. Nick Park, the creator, also made a series of two-minute little movies about a bunch of Wallace's different inventions, called Cracking Contraptions. I think that my favorite is "The Snoozatron" because it reminds me of mine and MarĂ­a's relationship, except that I make her pat my back instead of dressing up in a sheep costume.

Love, Jillian
