I saw The Hunger Games last night.
People, I loved it. LOVED IT!!!!!!
I went with some teacher friends, and we got in line for the 4:45 showing. Don't worry. It was a short line. One of my former students was in the line. We'll call him . . . Dennis. As in Menace. And now he's taller than me. I think he's a freshman. Or a sophomore now. He looked like he'd seen a ghost. He froze when I said hi to him. It might be because not only did I remember his first name, I remembered his last name, and so I said both together. "Hi, First Name, Last Name." Then, because I am evil and have a great memory, I said, "First Name, Last Name, I'd better not hear any talking from you during this movie." Because that is ALL HE DID during first grade. (I also remember a lot of spittle on the sides of his mouth. Perpetual spittle. It bothered me. You'll be glad to know that went away.)
Well, while we were standing in the little line (I think we were fifth in line), one of my other teacher friends came OUT OF A DIFFERENT THEATER to use the restroom. And she said, "There's no one in our theater and it starts in ten minutes. Come over there." We knew a couple of the girls were going to the earlier showing, but we didn't want to risk the line. And sitting down in front. And hurting our necks.
I was ready to just run in there (I may have actually done that), but I was at the movies with some goody-two-shoes, and they felt that they needed to go see if we could exchange our tickets. So we did. Legally. (Some people did NOT.) Not only did I see The Hunger Games, I saw it thirty minutes earlier than planned.
That's what I call a VERY GOOD DAY.
No Dennis the Menace in our theater. But lots of LITTLE KIDS. What were their parents thinking?????
After the movie, we went out to eat. And we made a toast and clinked our various glasses of alcohol (wine for me!). Because not only did we see The Hunger Games, we are OFFICIALLY ON OUR TWO WEEK SPRING BREAK!
It gets even better.
Don't hate me or unfollow me.
I am going back to see The Hunger Games tonight. After church. With the hubs and his aunt and uncle. I CAN'T WAIT! I am literally giddy.
Dave Ramsey (from my Financial Class) would not agree with the amount of money I am spending on movies.
However, I can't help it. I am avoiding him at all costs.
Have you seen it yet? Did you like it???
I remember seeing the first Twilight (as if it were yesterday) and being very disappointed with the acting and the special effects. I didn't feel like it lived up to the book. I do think each movie has gotten better as each one has been released.
This is a whole 'nother ballgame. A ballgame where your favorite team is playing in the World Series and they win. Go Dodgers!
This post has nothing to do with school or reality TV. I'm trying to think of something to throw in, but I can't. I'm on vacation. It is THE BEST feeling!
Seriously, don't hate me. Or unfollow me.
May the odds be ever in your favor!
