For the love of Ryan Gosling… SHUT IT!

It took two recent trips to the movie theatre for me to remember why I don’t go to the movies anymore. Some people have no common courtesy, common sense and annoy the hell out of me!

My first trip to the theatre was opening weekend of The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn. (For the record, I am not a Twihard, but I did read the books and thought they were an alright fluff read.)  Some of you may think I am crazy for going opening weekend, but there is a method to my obvious madness – I HATE being spoiled. I like to see for myself what scenes they chose to use from the books, what dress she wore, what songs were included etc.

We got there about 30 minutes before the movie started to make sure we got good seats, and there was little to no line-up. I thought to myself, this is a good sign…so wrong. By the time the trailers started the theatre was packed with people of all ages and sexes.

When the movie started I was blown away! Not by the opening sequence, but by the sheer RE-DONK-U-LOUSNESS of the people in the theatre! First, people were yelling out what they wanted “to do” to insert Vampire or Werewolf name here. You are not in your living room people, I don’t give a rats ass how hot you think he is.  I also hate to break it to you, but he is NOT your husband and no matter how many times you say it (OUT LOUD), it won’t make it true. Second, what part of turn your cell phones off did you NOT understand? And lastly, who takes PICTURES of the damn screen? I literally saw a girl stand up and her friend behind her took a picture of her in front of the screen so it “looked” like she was there with them. Have they not heard of the internet? There are plenty of better quality pictures there, use an online version of Photoshop and you would get much better results! It was crazy! In all seriousness, if I wanted to see stupidity I could have stayed home and watched Jersey Shore for free! What is wrong with these people?

Where are you Christmas?

I am a Christmas junkie! There I said it, and the first step is admitting you have a problem.

Normally I have majority of my gifts purchased by August, the tree up and trimmed the Sunday after Halloween and carol’s playing in my car after the Santa Claus parade. I freaking LOVE Christmas! I’m also a little Martha Stewart about my decorating to the point that my wrapping paper matches my tree.

This year has been a little different. I’m just not feeling the “Christmas spirit” and life just has not been cooperating! I have no gifts purchased, I just put my tree up yesterday and I haven’t even begun to plan when I can make my Christmas cupcakes! I have no desire to brave the malls or even shop online. I’m not looking forward to this Christmas as I have in the past and I need to figure out why and fix this! Continue reading
