RedFlop


Last night I was heading out to Albertson's at about 8:30. Ken was going to be home from school in a half hour or so and I was supposed to do dinner. And when I "do dinner" it's frozen pizza and a bad of salad. So, I'm going to get my ingredients. I pick everything up (have you noticed how EXPENSIVE frozen pizza is now?!) And I see the red box of RedBox. I think, "I have been dying to see Twilight." I absolutely hated the book but I've heard the movie is better. It would almost guaranteed have to be better than that book. So I go over to the RedBox and Twilight is a choice. I add it to my cart and then think, "Ken won't want to watch Twilight. I should get something we both would want to watch." So I browse through all the titles. Netflix spoils us because we've seen so many stinking movies... but I see The Soloist (which was a pretty good book) and swap it with Twilight.

After our incredibly nutritional meal I tell Ken I also got a movie! Talk about a great wife. "Oh, I have homework. I can't watch anything tonight." *sigh* I should have got stinking old Twilight. I put in The Soloist and fell asleep during the first 20 minutes. I dreamt of Edward Cullen. Who I am still dying to meet. My new goal is to be more selfish while picking out movies.

I'm always selfish with my movies. Dustin will atest to that! Never saw "The Soloist", but I actually liked Twilight the book better than Twilight the movie. When you watch it, you'll have to tell me what you thought.

I have Twilight, Pats. Come get it. Ben and I hardly ever watch movies together. Our schedules just don't mesh.
