I am officially a lightweight because I have been either pregnant or nursing during the past 2 1/2 years. After half a drink I'm usually done and I hand it over to The Captain to finish. At dinner, I managed to drink almost all 3 of my taster by myself. They were all delicious too, as well as the food.
Then it was off to the movies. We wanted to see World War Z, because it's a zombie movie, duh. However, we got to the theater just as it sold out. We had to make a quick last minute decision and picked The Lone Ranger. I had absolutely no desire to see this movie, even if it is a Disney film and stars Johnny Depp. It has a pathetic 25% on Rotten Tomatoes too. I was pretty bummed, but then I saw something that lifted my spirits!
A cardboard cutout of One Direction for their new movie coming out. I have a strange love of One Direction and my favorite band member, Harry Styles. I know I am almost 30, but I was never a boy band fan during my adolescence. Maybe I'm just making up for lost time. I think I'll have to take my niece, Princess P to see it this summer.
Like a giddy tween I took my place among the cardboard crooners and The Captain snapped my photo. He even promised to take me to see the movie when it comes out. (It's on the Internet that he said this now, so there is no taking it back)
We headed in to see The Lone Ranger and nearly 3 hours later it was over. It was not terrible, I will say that. I went in with no knowledge of The Lone Ranger franchise and very little information about the movie. I left with an enjoyable date night, but a sick feeling about the history of America and the Native Americans. I would rate it higher than 25%, but I still would have preferred a zombie flick instead.
I think we need to make date night more of a regular occurrence, but I'm picking the movie next time.
