As I have mentioned a couple of times, yesterday I attended all five movies that were nominated for the Academy's Best Picture Award. We had so much fun! We had free popcorn and drinks all day. I would never have guessed that 12 hours of movie watching would make me so tired! And my ass and hips? They are SORE. One of my friends said she was sure she had bed sores for sitting so long. Some people brought blankets and pillows, which I should have done so I could have slept/rested through the movies I had already seen. Instead, for two of those movies, some of us skipped out to go out to eat. The cool thing was, the theater was allowing you to go out and get food to bring in, so we saw a lot of Dewey's Pizzas, burritos from a local restaurant, salads, pastas and people with coolers. It was a very festive event and the place was packed full. In between movies they had a local DJ doing Oscar trivia and giving out door prizes. I really enjoyed the two movies I had not seen yet which were The Reader and Frost/Nixon. On the way home we were already talking about next year and how to plan better! We think we might even invite our hubbies to join us. Isn't that nice of us?
I am a 40 something chick, married (to Motorcycle Guy, AKA MG) and raising three boys (Big E, Sous Chef and CJ). We live in the burbs, which I am still adjusting to, even after 11+ years, and counting!
