Being Babushka is the Bomb- Screening OOgieloves w/the grandbabies y La Tata

Remember how in my Introduction I said that post was just a tease?  Bueno, I'm a gonna do it again!  This time though it isn't about Babushka. Really, De veras.   JU SO FONII!!!  Ok, si, I'm in it, but it's not about me- not directly anyway.

This post is about an event I went to yesterday, a screening of the Oogieloves movie coming out on August 29, 2012.  A screening with such attention to details, such pizazz, that I can't imagine any Hollywood screening being any better. As a matter of fact, not only was this a screening, it was also a press junket because the bloggers got to hear from the producers and writer of the film while the children were being entertained at "Camp Oogie" with crafts. Viste?  Now tell me a Hollywood screening has to do that!

Creator Viselman & Producer Wood

These two had a very entertaining story about their 15 year collaboration and at times seemed like a comedy team.    From conception to aspiration, they shared their vision of programming for kids.    I found them to be very "real" and appreciated their truthful tale.  As Ken Viselman said of children's shows, they could "be positive and make money."  

BB's hopes to emulate this very sentiment.

  ; )

They're trying to bring entertainment to the young
 without ever forgetting what it is to be young. 

Wanna sing? Do it.  
Wanna dance? Go ahead.  
It doesn't matter what you look like, all it matters is that you're enjoying yourself.  

Vamanos gente, doesn't that sound like BB's motto too?  

Ok, esta bien, I said this wouldn't be about BB, so let's bring on the real tease.


Que crees?

Unfortunately I can't review the movie until its release- thus the "tease" label, 
but I can certainly critique the event!

The gains of the event

Family-  La Tata's electric skooter
Food- Unlimited Popcorn & spectacular breakfast buffet
Friends- Made a new one. Jeanne's business card.
Finances- $50 American Express card


Any of these alone would have been beautiful, 
the combination of all of them make being Babushka, The Bomb.  

Gracias to all of you for making it possible.

Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.

P.S.  My required FTC disclaimer. Por supuesto and obviously, I was compensated for this post via the above screening, the yummies, and the AE card but the opinions are mine and shared by La Tata who said, "If you're ever offered to do another event like this one- AGARRALO!"

Groovy Spanglish speaking Grandma of 6 who loves life and all its adventures. Motivational while still keeping it real, Babushka shows how all things looked at with gratitude are good, and how to say to la vida- JU SO FONII!!!

Always remember- If someone doesn't see YOUR brilliance, just look at them, smile, and say- JU SO FONI!!!
