A Skull. For Free!

For the first time in a year or so, I got to go to a movie!

It was fantastic.

Mind you, it was fantastic before I ever stepped in the theatre.

I had won two free tickets to a private screening, complete with free popcorn and pop. So this morning I put on my new jeans, rounded up my sister-in-law, and went to the movies. Whoo-hoo.

It could have have Adam Sandler in it and I still would have been happy.

But it gets better.

It was the new Indy. Yep, that's right, Harrison Ford. For free.

It really doesn't get any better than that.

I had read a couple of reviews this week that were a little negative and I would like to dispute that. Yes, it is about as realistic as Pamela Anderson's girls, but isn't that the point?

You suspend your disbelief and you just enjoy it. It was funny, entertaining and had some good special effects. The special effects weren't as good as Air Force One (my favorite action movie of all times) but still, pretty fun.

That being said, please do not take your 5 year old. (Unless comforting a crying child in the middle of the night for several weeks is your cup of tea, then be my guest.)

I had such a good time I will throw in a plug for the nice Realtor who made it all possible!

I hesitated linking to him because that would reveal which city I live in, but I don't put my name or photos on this blog, so what are the crazies gonna do? Drive around town hollering "Happy Geek, come out so we can beat you"? I figure I'm safe.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to sword-fight on the back of a moving Jeep!

Could you please keep your sword fighting to your zone of the city? I don't think that I could handle the thought of Way Cooler driving down into my neighborhood with you swordfighting out the back of your minivan!

That is some cool winnings, girl! Sounds like fun. Was Way Cooler jealous that he didn't get to go?

A night out is always fantastic. Glad you had fun!
