Lauren wasn’t feeling very well yesterday. I picked her up after school and we went to vote, then we got some drugs for Cricket, some Subway for us and went home. She went to bed early, and I watched the networks project winners with 3% of the vote in. But that’s not what I wanted to post about.
Peggy asked what movie we went to see for Bad Movie Night®. We decided that we couldn’t really go wrong with a movie based on a video game, so we went to see Max Payne. It was really bad, and I couldn’t possibly recommend it. But we had a lot of fun making fun of it.
What I don’t really enjoy so much anymore is our local theatre. Ever since Marcus Theatres bought Douglas Theatres, the movie experience has been going downhill. There were two things this time that really ticked me off. First of all, they had grape Icees instead of cola Icees. Why would you do something like that? To put it in my own words, when the concession stand worker said, “We only have grape and cherry.” I could only respond, “Why bother?”
We’ve learned in the last 6 months that we no longer have to try to get to the movie on time, but last week was ridiculous. The Max Payne was scheduled to begin at 5:00. The last commercial and preview was finished at 5:26. Ouch.
Oh, and Ron Paul isn’t our next president. Ouch Ouch.
