Movie Night

Oh my gosh. I saw "Valiant" last night,[[second and last date]]. That has to be one of the worst movies ever made. Sure it had a few funny moments, but I sure wouldn't want to see it again. No way, no how. You couldn't pay me enough. The best line in the entire movie was when the pidgeon Valiant said, "aren't you a little short for a nursing dove?" which reminded me of Princess Leia's line in Star Wars to Luke, "Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper". I laughed so hard at that - I actually choked on my soda.

Not much else to say about the date. We talked for about half an hour before hand, and I almost said, "I'm sorry I can't do this" but he'd already bought the tickets and so I was stuck. Afterwards, when he asked when he could see me again, I hedged and said I'd let his sister know. Actually, he tied setting up the next date before we'd even gotten started with this one. Like - plan our entire future why don't you?!?!?! That's how I felt listening to him talk.

On a completely different note: how does a church service that is supposed to be focused on praying for the peace of Jerusalem turn into a service about the nations?????? Not that it's bad to pray for the nations...I love it. But the day is supposed to be focused on Israel and Jerusalem. I just don't get how some people think.......but I guess that's ok, cuz I leave them just as confused sometimes!!!

Thanks to everyone who answered the Weekend question I had posted yesterday.

'Valiant' sounds a real dud of a movie.

Your date does sound like he is planning for the future. You were wise to nip that in the bud.

Doesnt sound like such a hot date - sorry! I know what a bummer that can be, trust me.

Michele sent me. Nice to find your blog - I've bookmarked you so I can find you again. :) I took my 3 y.o. to see Valiant and I have to agree. My other boys were disappointed they missed out (it's rare we go out to the movies because of the cost)I tried to get them to understand they didn't miss out. It was a nice diversion on a HOT day about a month ago when we had no power all day at home.

So did you learn a lesson from your pain?... I did...

*note to self - avoid Valiant*

Hey... You could be in a 'Fantasy Island' re-make if you wanted to!

I'd pay to see that!

*note to self - If Ciera plays the co-host on a remake of 'Fantasy Island", pay to see it.*

Fluke - sometimes you are just so strange. Not complaining though, so keep at it.

Never heard of "Valiant". I guess I'll avoid it now.
