A New Read and A Fun Movie!

As I'm writing this to you this morning, dear reader, I keep thinking there was something else I wanted to write about last night, but now I can't remember what it was. Blame it on my poor pregnant brain!!

Yesterday turned out to be a lot more fun than I originally expected it to be. Hubby and I decided to take a trip to the library to see what fun books we hadn't read yet. I got 5, get got one on hold at another branch that I had to pick up later! The first one I dove into was...

Well, I started reading around 3-ish yesterday afternoon, and I'm already nearly half-way through!!! This is a frabjous book (callooh-callay!) about imaginary friends and learning to believe that the extras are what make life!! I strongly recommend it (and of course, it's predicessor P.S. I Love You, which I mentioned in a previous post.) I've been warned that there is a bit of emotion to it, and there have been a few heartbreaking moments so far, so take heed. Although, I can say that I haven't been reduced to tears QUITE yet!

(Actually, I have to confess, this is my first time getting to the computer today at almost 1:00pm because I stayed in bed reading all morning!!!!! I love first pregnancy... no kids yet and I can still DO that!)

Last night, I got to be spontaneous and go out to catch a movie with my friend SR. She and I haven't had the chance to do much together lately, so we grabbed the chance! Since we'd both been waiting and waiting to see it and hadn't had a chance, we saw...

The move was great, but the REAL story of our evening comes before the previews even started! We were the only people in the theater at the time (only 3-4 other people came in later anyway), and this big guy in a pinstripe suit and a fob comes in and asks if he could have one of our ticket stubs so he can leave the theater and get back in! ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Ummm, yeeeeeahhh.... so we played it cool, I "looked" for the stubs, and we concluded that I had tossed them while getting our snacks. Can we say CREEEEPY?!?!?! So he finally left us alone with our nachos and popcorn, but SR went to let security know there was some crazy guy trying to filch a free movie. The REALLY sad part? They didn't even care!!!

Well, after that bizzare moment, the last few people came into the theater Secretly, I was kinda hoping they wouldn't. I've always had a little fantasy about being able to see a movie in an empty theater. Makes me feel like they played it just for me! After the previews, we enjoyed the movie, cracked up at a few moments, were scarred by Candice Bergan's old woman clevage (SHE NEVER SHOWED THAT MUCH IN BOSTON LEGAL!!!!!) and totally called a wedding disaster before it happened, but trust me, it was better off that it did. I recommend it, but since it's on its way out of theaters, you may want to just sit tight for the DVD.

Well, that's all for now, my pretties. Enjoy your afternoons and have an amazing Valentine's Day. I will be enjoying a $100 per plate dinner/dance for my mom's work... for FREE!! Unfortunately, hubby couldn't get his shifts switched so I'll be going stag. Oh well, I'll be dressed up and pretty anyway.

Oh my goodness I LOVE that book and Cecelia Ahern! She's my favorite author - I read PS I Love You waaay before it became a movie. Have you read Rosie Dunne yet? It's also titled Love, Rosie I think. Anyways that's by FAR one of the best books ever. xoxo

My dear, the simple fact that you know that book by Rosie Dunne tells me you are far more fabulous a person than I already thought! I haven't read it YET, but my friend (SR, actually!) owns the first edition original title cloth cover and she knows I'll be borrowing it after my library books are turned back in. Hehe!
