Yesterday was do or die for hubby!
You see, when I wanted to go see Serenity, he kept stalling and I only got to see it later, at home. This time, I told him, it would be dangerous for him if I didn't see X3 on a big screen.
So we went to a downtown mall last night, paid for parking, had a coffee and a rougie (that's what Canadians who cannot pronounce rougalach call it. And I was so excited that they had rougalach too. Usually it's only in Jewish delis/bakeries or in New-York that I find them).
But I'm digressing, so parking, coffee and rougie and up to the movie theatre. Sold Out!
I wanted to buy tickets for tomorrow but hubby started his stalling tactic again. Boy, when he doesn't want to see a movie...
Finally, when he saw this might be trouble he looked on the internet (on his crackberry) and found us another theatre, half an hour drive uptown. Suburbia land. Fine.
We got there. A cheap theatre, again inside a mall, but... the listing was wrong. No X3 was showing.
As I was walking the aisles of the dollar store (love dollar stores), hubby again went on the internet. After five minutes he called me. This time we drove outside Toronto, but this time we were successful.
A big Cineplex complex. Hate these. You know, with the arcade and the teens and it's all dirty and noisy and quite disgusting. Going to the movies used to be a civilized experience once. Now it's a vulgar scene.
Instead of watching the intended 7:30 show, we ended up seeing a 9:15 show. But we did and it was fun and that's what counts!
And the movie? What can I say? Not as good as the first two, but I had a good time!Read the rest
