When I found out the weather was going to be nice today, I was almost a little bummed. Don't get me wrong, this weather has been just as depressing to me as it has been for the rest of you, but I kind of wanted to go to a movie, but now since it will be nice out, I feel like it is a waste of an afternoon. The funny thing is is I still probably won't leave the confines of my apartment, but I like to pretend I would :) So back to the movie thing. I was looking forward to going to a movie by myself- is that weird? About 5 years ago Murphy and Maino dared me to go to a movie by myself. I did, and I was pretty much mortified. In my defense I think it was because I turned out to be the only person in the ENTIRE theater. ( I went to Fever pitch at the old ghetto Marcus at like 4 in the afternoon on a Tuesday. The theater has now been demolished.) So having to sit by myself as the ushers did their little theater check was so embarrassing! About two months ago I went to go see The Last Song by myself (Mike refused to go, and I was bored one night.) I found myself actually loving it! Actually, sometimes I think I prefer it! A friend of mine had asked me to go see Sex and the City 2 with her when it came out, and I found myself disappointed because I was hoping to go to the movie by myself. I enjoy sitting by myself, not having to make conversation as you wait for the movie to start, not having to listen to their input throughout the entire movie, purchasing the small buckey of popcorn, not having both hands digging in one at a time- and of course in the middle of the movie that person going- is there any popcorn left? Granted I do still love going to movies with friends and Michael, but certain movies you just want to see alone. For example, any movie I had read the book to. I like to silently analyze the differences in my head. If someone knows I read the book ahead of time, they will often ask me questions in the middle of the movie- like wait, what just happened, or who is that person, or why is this so important? Again, like I said that doesn't mean I only like going to movies alone. Actually going to movies is a huge common interest for Mike and I. But like I said, I prefer certain ones with him, I love going to comedies with him, and especially thriller or scary movies! I am just wondering if anyone else agrees with me, or if I am kinda different ;)?
