The Sno Cones: Instead of going to see Eclipse on Wednesday I opted to go scrapbooking for the day and then, later in the evening, AD and I drove to the sno-cone stand. He chose Mai Tai and of course, I chose Twilight with cream. Twilight was a blend of black cherry and tutti fruiti flavors. I was very good but I still think I like the original one I had - Pink Elephant - to all the others I've tried.
The Legend: Yesterday we planned to drive into town to see Russell Crowe's version of Robin Hood, then do a bit of shopping. I know. We're way behind on seeing this movie but we rarely go to the movies and when we do we most often wait until they are relegated to the "cheap" movie theatres. It was a good movie. Kind of long. A different story than what we've seen before. It certainly made me curious where this particular story came from.
After Robin Hood was over and we were leaving the theatre AD asked if I wanted to go see Toy Story 3. I had mentioned I'd like to see it on Tuesday evening.
Vampires and Werewolves: Well, since he was up for another movie I said I'd really rather see Eclipse. Probably not what AD wanted to hear but he was a good sport about it. Was it too late to catch a matinee? It was 4:20-ish. AD said we could try if I really wanted to see it and we zipped on over to the other theatre in town.
We got there just at 4:30 and there was - get this - a 4:30 showing! I asked if the feature had started yet (sometimes they don't show any trailers - just go straight to the feature) and the girl said no, the previews were just starting. Then I asked if the theatre was sold out and she said no, there were still plenty of seats left. Great!
We by-passed the concessions (we usually do) and found some fairly decent seats. I thought the movie was the best of the 3 so far.
While it wasn't on AD's list of movies to see I don't think he exactly hated it. Maybe because of the action scenes or maybe because there were more guys there this time including someone he knows from his job.
By the time the movie was over it was getting late and we needed to get something to eat. So no shopping happened. Maybe today we'll do that - after the mowing is done.
Wishing everyone a spectacular 4th of July holiday!
