Thank you for your resonses, everyone! Ok, ok, I vacuumed the car! Next you're going to tell me that I should have taken a shower and changed my Power Rangers underwear, too. Just kidding! I showered!
Well, there's not too much to dish.
I wanted to go see "500 Days Of Summer" so that I could look at Zooey Deschanel. She's so dreamy, and she looks nice in a dress. It's a total girl movie. Normally, I have zero issues with going to see any movie alone. I like artsy films, and it would not be out of the question that I'm alone at the Main Art Theater watching "Amelie." But for some reason, I chickened out going alone to this one.
This was not a date. So I didn't dress up. I considered cologne. You wear cologne on a date. This was not a date.
I put a little cologne on anyway.
I vacuumed the car, removed the empty water bottles, and took the stacks of CD cases into the house. It was a humid day, and now I was spotting up my clean shirt. I may as well have biked over to her house.
My not-date "R" was dressed VERY casually, because she was not on a date. And I was happy about the casual attitude.
R offered to buy tickets if I bought snacks. Square deal. That's the kind of thing you do when it's not a date. I had asked her previously if she wanted to eat, too, but she did not. So I ate ahead of time. R hinted that she eats a lot of popcorn, so I got the biggest bag. I had a couple of handfuls but she pretty much cleared out that whole bag by herself.
R picked the seat. It was kinda full, so we just sat down in two. This was one of the nicer theaters that has the armrest that you can move out of the way for a snuggle. I pointed out to R that she had picked two seats where the armrest was already in 'romance mode'. The armrest was immediately pulled down. The armrest should be in the down position when you're not on a date.
I enjoyed the movie. It was just what I was hoping for. And the soundtrack was pretty good. And Zooey Daschenel sings in it, which I was also hoping for. (Does anyone remember that great scene in Elf where she's singing "Baby It's Cold Outside" in the shower?)
There's a scene where the male character feels on top of the world, and it turns into a coreographed dance scene. It reminded me of another movie: The 1991 film "Surviving Desire" had a scene where the male character gets an intoxicating first kiss. And on his walk home, his walk turns into a dance. It caught me so off guard! I have felt like that. It made me love the movie. Here's the scene, but taken out of context, it's not as powerful, and seems kinda silly.
Anyway. That was that. The first time I've been to a grown-up movie in a long time. But I missed out on my Tuesday bike ride.
In other news, the inside of my car looks really clean today!
Have an awesome Wednesday, peepers.
