SKewed Clues #56

Welcome to Skewed Clues!

This is a collection of things I think about, find,
want to share, but don’t need a dedicated blog post for.


As everyone so many news outlets and resources have recently celebrated commemorated reaching the one year anniversary of the declaration of a global pandemic AND everyone is acting like they are just done with the existence of a global pandemic and opening up businesses and bars and having a great spring break, I am facing so many conflicting emotions.

Also, as we’ve reached a year of working from home, I fully admit that I love working from home. For one, my work office has no windows so it can be quite depressing. While at home, I have lots of options for stimulating workspace. Having the freedom to do chores, run errands, take mini-breaks has been great. However, something that is really starting to grate on me is the number of people (family members, I’m looking at you) who look at me like this:

With a smile and look of “Oh, sure. [emphatic air quotes] working from home.”

It just really shows me that, while I’ve held this type of job for over a decade, so many people still don’t understand what I do.

Movie Synopsis:
In the first-ever all CGI SpongeBob motion picture event, SpongeBob SquarePants, his best friend Patrick, and the Bikini Bottom gang star in their most epic adventure movie yet! When SpongeBob’s beloved pet snail Gary goes missing, a path of clues leads SpongeBob and Patrick to the powerful King Poseidon, who has Gary held captive in the Lost City of Atlantic City. On their mission to save Gary, SpongeBob and his pals team up for a heroic and hilarious journey where they discover nothing is stronger than the power of friendship. (source – Rotten Tomatoes)

My Take:

We watched this on a family movie night recently through Amazon Prime. As a huge SpongeBob fan, MyChild was thrilled to finally be able to see this one. My husband and I were on board because the cartoons have really grown on us.

Honestly, for all the hype and delays, this movie was… fine.

Yes, it was cute. Yes, it had some funny parts. Did I LOVE that Awkwafina and Tiffany Haddish were involved? Yes, yes I did.


There are a few other surprise cast members that make the movie very fun – no spoilers, though.

Overall, I enjoyed the move, but I like The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water much better.

The Final Verdict

SK Movie Rating Scale

Me:            3.5 stars
MyHusband: 4 stars
