Sorry guys, this one is rambling. I may have had a wee bit of beer tonight.
Yesterday (after looking for cars) we did nothing but watch movies.
First up was Gone Baby Gone. It was really awesome, if you haven't seen it yet, go do so. It had drama and tension, twists and turns, and surprise ending. It was really well directed (see, Ben Affleck can do something well) and really well acted. If this doesn't do it for Casey Affleck, nothing will.
Then we watched several movies we had rented. First we watched Reign Over Me. I was surprised that I actually like it. As much as I love Adam Sandler's goofy roles, I tend not to like his serious roles as much (i.e. Punch Drunk Love). It was a little slow and meandering for me, but overall all it was good.
The second rental we watched was Evan Almighty. Yes, it was not as good as Bruce Almighty, but I didn't think it totally sucked. It was definitely more family/religious based, and I think religious themed movies are a hard sell. The special effects were pretty sweet, and I love Steve Carell and Lauren Graham. I might have just had super low expectations though, after all the horrible reviews I read.
Today (Sunday) I think I found the car I want. Its a Honda Civic. Realistically, all I care about is that the car gets good gas mileage and goes from A to B. I like smaller cars because I can't park worth crap. Its in good shape, has low mileage, and I can afford it.
Then we went to my nephew's fourth birthday party, which made me feel really fucking old. My boyfriend and I had literally just started dating when A1 found out she was pregnant. We got him a bucket of dinosaurs that came with volcanoes and rocks, and he was super excited about the rocks. If I would have known that, I would have rinsed a few off from the yard and saved my money. Oh well. My boyfriend and his brother promptly apprehended his transformers and played for the rest of the night. At least my boyfriend was Bumblebee. I was stuck talking to A2 (my boyfriends brother's girlfriend) all night.
My boyfriend got mad at me because I made a comment about how much weight she's gained. Not to her face, in the car afterwards. But for real, its like 30 pounds. She's still a teenager, she shouldn't be gaining weight this rapidly. At least I'm thinner...
