Well, happy Black Friday to you. Although I think I need to adjust the title of my Black Friday to something more along the lines of Be Lazy and Watch Movies and Stay in Pjs Friday because that’s what’s happening over here. We try to avoid Black Friday people at all costs. They kind of scare me. No offense.
Well, I wasn’t sure if anyone would want the Ornament Template or not but apparently, lots do. So rather than email a bunch of people (because remember I am having Be Lazy and Watch Movies and Stay in Pjs Friday), here it is. Click to download.
I saw Breaking Dawn on Wednesday. I loved it. What’s not to love? But I have three critiques. Or negatives. Or parts I didn’t like.
1. Edward’s eyebrows seemed too bushy to me. I felt like they were taking over his whole face and I kept trying to rearrange his features by squinting my eyes, but it didn’t work. Bushy.
2. There is a scene where the werewolves are talking to one another . . . I felt like I was watching a cartoon. It was so weird to me.
3. It ended!!!! I hate that it ended. I would have been good to go with a short intermission for a bathroom break, restocking my snack supply, and stretching my legs for a bit. I thought it was cruel and unusual punishment for it to end.
There was NO ONE in our theater. It could be because we went to the first showing at 10:30 in the morning, but there were only three “groups” of people. Some people sat way below us and some people sat way behind us. Lovely, my friend and I thought. This is perfect.
Here come three ladies. They sat on our row and left one seat between us. I’m all about the more, the merrier, but seriously? In this whole big empty theater, you have to sit right next to us? Really?
Here’s what they said when they sat down:
“Are you all Team Jacob? I can’t sit next to no Team Jacob . . . hee hee. Ha ha.”
I said I couldn’t make up my mind, we laughed, made some small talk, and we settled down. All was well.
Until the movie started and they TALKED THROUGH THE WHOLE DARN THING AND ANSWERED CELL PHONE CALLS AND TALKED ON THOSE, TOO!!! At one point, I thought one of them was talking on her cell phone and relaying the entire movie to the person on the other end.
I about turned into a werewolf myself and attacked them.
Instead, I’ve just been complaining about it to any and everyone who will listen.
The women in my life respond with, “Oh no! That’s terrible! What’s their problem? Why did they even want to see the movie if they were just going to talk through it?”
The men in my life respond with, “Why didn’t you say anything?”
“Why didn’t you move?”
BIG SIGH. They just don’t understand. As angry as I was, I can’t have those stranger ladies not like me.
Anyways, I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving. We had a marathon day of brunch with my family and dinner with the hubby’s family. We were back home in just under twelve hours. We brought home some leftovers but I’m not big on leftovers. I know, I know, how awful. Am I crazy? Maybe. I just can’t eat the same thing all weekend long (unless it’s an English muffin with peanut butter for breakfast OR chocolate). Hubby already went and got me a turkey sandwich from Jersey Mike’s. I know!!! That’s so silly when yesterday was turkey day. But it was delicious, let me tell you!
So I leave you with two questions.
1. Do you like leftovers?
2. Do you ever have bad movie experiences? I can honestly tell you that you should never come to the movies with me because I am bad luck and stuff like this happens all the time. For example, another friend and I went to a movie and it never started. We had to go tell the people to start the movie. They did. Then we had to turn out the lights OURSELVES (this was in the olden days, obviously) and then it was the WRONG MOVIE. For real.
