Must Love Minions!

There was a story in the news recently about a woman who decided to divorce her husband, even though there were no serious problems between them, simply because he didn't love the animated film Frozen.

Seriously?

What kind of idiot leaves an otherwise successful marriage solely because their spouse doesn't share their love for a movie? I grew up in a family of TV junkies who would fight to the death over the remote control. And anyone who knows me well or is familiar with my blog or Facebook page knows I'm hopelessly addicted to the adorable Minions of the Despicable Me movies.

Even I wouldn't end a good relationship just because my partner didn't share my love of all things Minion...though the poor guy might find me and my Minions difficult to live with....






I also have Minion sheets and Minion Christmas tree ornaments. Think this qualifies as an addiction?

  1. Talk about giving someone the 'cold shoulder'--that woman divorcing him for not liking Frozen must be quite the Ice Princess.
    Maybe there's a special dating club for those who love Minions? If not, you could start one in St. Louis. The St. Louis Chapter of Minion Lovers.

  2. I don't even understand Minions, other than your ongoing insistence on letting them appear in over 50% of your Facebook posts. So I am glad we were friends before the Minions came along, but am so thankful you are not as crazy as the woman divorcing her husband. Didn't see that story until today and that man should thank his lucky stars. Of course I wasn't as crazy about Frozen as I could have been. I might be the one at fault here. I haven't found a movie yet that has made me a card carrying, minion sharing, marriage tearing, music blaring fan. Oops got carried away rhyming.

  3. @ Eve: I'll skip the dating and stick with the Minions. I'm too accustomed to doing what I want when I want. Minions or not, nobody could live with me for any length of time!

    @ Carole: You'll be seeing Minions on my Facebook page for a lobbying time to come!

  4. That was supposed to be "a long time to come." Autocorrect again.

  6. Yes, you're addicted to them. That much is obvious by now!

    They're a whole lot of gibberish talking trouble. Fortunately they get distracted easily.

    1. @ William: That's why I love them. They're like me. They make no sense and have the attention span of a gnat!

  7. I adore the minions too ! And see no reason that you can't love them as much as I love Totoro !
    hahahahahahahahahahahaha yes we are both addicted. And it doesn't hurt anyone. Plus I know you probably have more minion hidden away somewhere.
    The woman was a idiot Frozen wasn't even that good of a movie. It will not hold up. Really her husband is the lucky one here. Run don't walk away from her !

    cheers, parsnip

  8. Love those little yellow guys. As for the woman, sounds like there might be some hidden issues going on. Something is a tad wonky with that whole thing.

  9. @ Gayle: the Minions have a lot of adult fans! I thought I was an oddball at first, until I discovered how many of us adore the little yellow guys!

    @ Ivy: I noticed you still have that cute video of Minion Tom in the French maid uniform on your blog!

    I've wondered if that gal used Frozen as an excuse to leave her husband.

    1. I do, yeppers. Loved the first movie. Still have to
      see the next one. Waiting for a killer BluRay deal
      so we can own both.

    2. We had the first one on Blu-Ray--but we've gone digital for everything--we got the second one on digital and my son converted the first to digital.

      Once he finishes converting our video library, we'll have everything on an external hard drive and save even more space (I moved my bookshelves back to the storeroom once I'd converted 99% of my books to Kindle format).

    3. That's cool that you have everything on digital. I still like having the DVD's but admit that I buy way less than I used to. We watch Amazon Prime, NetFlix and YouTube.

      But for the really good stuff, I still enjoy having the DVD.

    4. I think a lot of people feel that way. The one thing I do miss is the pics and info on the packaging. But for apartment-dwellers like Collin and me, digital is a huge space-saver.
