There's Always a First Time

I actually did something today that I've never done before in my life. I went to the movie theater alone. I was dying to see The Holiday over Christmas, but Skip and I never made the time. I looked online and saw that it was leaving tomorrow, so I decided to go for it. It may not seem like a big deal to many of you, but I really had to talk myself into going. I don't know if its an insecurity or the fact that I don't just normally treat myself like this. I must say that I had the best time. It was a total chick flick and I laughed and cried. I brought my favorite candy Almond Joys (the minis) and I won't tell you how many I ate. After all it was my lunch today, and I was treating myself. Oh, I also indulged in a small buttered popcorn with a diet coke (great combination). If you get a chance, you must rent this movie when it comes out on dvd. It has a great cast and it just made me smile. Of course you are going to have some of the hollywood stuff that tends to come with most movies nowdays, but overall it was very good. I love Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, and Jack Black. Oh, and I couldn't forget Jude Law. He is well..uhh..he is ...uhh... I think he ...uhh... He is a really good actor. Yeah, that's it. Okay, I'm sorry, I am a pushover for a British accent. Seriously, it is a very cute movie and you must go see it.

I got up the nerve to go to the movies by myself a few years ago. I love it!! I don't have to worry about what anyone else is thinking about the movie. I can just sit and enjoy. Once I was practically the only one in the theater!!!
It's fun!

I've done that-- going to the movies by myself many years ago as well. You just inspired me to do that again. There are some movies out I want to see, I may just have to go check them out myself.

p.s. I might call you as well.

I have never gone to the movies by myself but I think I'm going to have to start. Sounds like a wonderful time just to click out on my own.

I loved The Holiday, I thought it was so cute.

And Jude Law is most definitely umm...a very good actor.

I would probaby have to talk myself into going to the movies alone, but it sounds like fun. Did you see Cameron Diaz's look the other night? I don't think I liked it at all.
