Yesterday worked out perfectly.
Around 3pm I finally finished The Hunger Games and I was 100% ready to keep reading. However, Colin wouldn’t be home with the next book till 4pm (as I am borrowing them from my mom) and so I did what any crazy book person does who can’t read…..
….I watched about 5 different movie trailers
This got me too pumped. So pumped that for a second I wished I wasn’t a mother or that Logan had a babysitter next door I could just ask. Since neither of those things were true I pick up the phone and called the FIL.
I asked him if he could drive down to watch Logan so we could used our 2 for 1 movie pass and go see The Hunger Games!!!!
He agreed… and by 7:30 I was in such a state of bliss outside the movie theatre, you’d think I’d never been to a movie before.
either I suck at posing or Colin sucks at taking a picture on his phone – or most likely, a combination of both because I felt about 10,000X happier than I’m being depicted here.
The movie started at 8pm and we were worried about the time, but everything just continued to work out. Colin’s father was on time, I drove to the movie theatre in record (safe) breaking time and even when we were in the most painfully slow moving line to buy our tickets, we made it in by 7:50!
again, not the best picture…..actually more like the worst! but you will note my HG tribute pin yep I’m one of those people. It’s actually one of my late Grandmother’s broaches. Still, you know why it’s there – just call me Katniss Everdeen
The next 2hrs were the best ever! We had no one annoying around us, I actually think going to the movies with Colin is always a good time. The universe must know we don’t get out much I actually really liked the movie, but I just had to ask Colin if he understood the love interest situation, as for me (the reader) I thought it moved kinda fast and lacked development.
The only thing I wasn’t prepared for was how brutal the first scene in the arena was going to be. I guess when you’re reading you can make deaths a little nicer in you head. lol
Anyway, I am happy that I read the book, watched the film and now I’ll most likely just read and sleep today until it’s time to work.
I made the mistake of going to check on Logan when we got home – he was up until 1am and then was in our bed again! argh! The poor guy. I’m just hoping he’s just as tired so we can both have nap time together
So just because I know you love him……
Here’s Logan eating some Chobani yogurt.
1. if you had to go into the Games as tribute would you be able to kill someone??
Ya, so I know I’m dying first – I’m loud, scared of everything and have basically no sense of direction. I would kill in defense. Otherwise, no – as stated, I’m that person killed right away
2. what is the last movie you went to see in the theatre and with who??
3. are you a fan of Greek yogurt??
Logan loved this so much he was calling it ice cream ;P
