A. was at Pre-K today, and sure there were things I could do around the house. Things on my list to tackle, groceries to buy, yada-yada, blah-blah.
Instead, I took myself to the early bird matinee to see this:
It was delightful. Mostly. I mean, the premise IS a teenage girl in high school faced with a positive pregnancy test, but that happens you know. It's PG-13 and the language is a bit rough around the edges. And yet.
I liked it.
I liked its quirkiness, its off-beat humor. I LOVE Jason Bateman (Can I just say, LOVE him). I loved that she used a hamburger telephone. I loved how they focused on adoption. I loved her attitude. I liked that there was running in the movie. I liked seeing Dwight (Rainn Wilson) from The Office, I miss him. I loved the soundtrack. It was quirky and cool. I loved that they included a Buddy Holly song. (I may need to watch The Buddy Holly Story soon. Again.) Jennifer Garner was beautiful, controlling and sweet at the same time. I liked that I arrived 2 minutes before show time and I was not freaking out about missing the previews and thereby jeopardizing the entire fun movie experience (a la Scott).
Quick SP before going in. 2 ladies looked at me funny as I was taking my picture with my cell phone. I just smiled and continued to document my experience. They must not be bloggers.After the movie I treated myself to soup and salad at La Madeleine before picking A. up from school. I think I floated home on a euphoric cloud.
Just so you know, in the spirit of a guilt free movie experience, I did vacuum, straighten and clean sinks and potties before I left for the movie. And, no it doesn't bother me to go to the movies by myself from time to time. I promise, I'm only barely a nerd.
