This evening, we went to go see Aquaman. I couldn’t wait to see Jason Momoa. When we arrived at the theater. Drew already bought the tickets, so we just had to approach the ushers to be scanned in. I stopped to talk to my friend Theresa and she gave us the new bucket and drink cup for the new year and threw away our old ones. We got popcorn and a drink cashed out and approached the usher. He scanned our tickets. We walked down the hallway to the theater room and took our seats. We munched on some popcorn and waited for the movie to start.
The movie was amazing. There were some parts that were a bit too fantasy for me, but Jason Momoa was a great Aquaman and he is easy on the eyes. There were some humorous lines in the movie and a happy ending. At the end, of course, we have to stay after the credits for the scenes.
Spoiler Alert: There will be another Aquaman!
After work, we had the annual departmental Beginning of the Year Get Together. It used to be a picnic in Schenley Park, but not we all meet up at a restaurant. This year it was the porch. Around 3:30pm, Nancy and I left to go to the Porch to make sure everything was in order for the food.
Once catering set up the food and took the drink orders, Nancy eventually slipped out and went back to the office. She said if I wanted to stay and mingle I could. Okay, I will have one beer. I had one beer. Snuggled Shayna’s baby for second and talked to some of the new grad students, then it was time to go back to my office to get my things and leave.
When I got back to the office, I grabbed my stuff and said goodbye to Nancy. I met Drew at the cathedral. He and I walked to the car. We were going directly from Oakland to the movies. We were going to see the Nun. I was so excited for this movie. I was hoping it was going to be so scary.
Once we arrived at the movie theater, we were so stiff after sitting in traffic we were going to have to sit for an hour or so at the movies now. Maybe this wasn’t a good idea after all. We got our popcorn and headed into the theater. When the lights dimmed, they showed previews for the upcoming movies. All of a sudden I heard the familiar tune, it was the Halloween preview! I am so damn excited. I really am. We are taking off that day to go see the movie. I can’t wait. I love Michael Myers and Halloween. He is my favorite villain. At the end of the preview, “I said, “YAASS!” Drew laughed.
The Nun was so scary! There were definitely times that I jumped out of my skin it seemed. There were some parts that made me scream, as well. Sometimes it was hard to get into it because other people in the theater couldn’t stop reeling and laughing from the prior moments of suspense. I still thought it was good. I haven’t been that scared at the movies in a long time. What it made it even more creepy is that I am Catholic and went to Catholic school all my life. They really cheeped out as a child. Not so much in high school, but they still made me uncomfortable.
After the movies, we went home and I got a shower and changed into PJs. I was so tired. I need to go to bed. I am still trying to get used to the class being in for the semester. If I am not reading, I am in class, at work, or working on my internship. I like to stay on top of my assignments as best as I can.
When I went to bed, Drew got a call from his friend TJ he is in town for the Pitt/Penn State game tomorrow. Drew went to meet up with TJ and John. I was glad he got to see them. I didn’t want to go. I just wanted to go to bed. He wasn’t out late and climbed right into bed with me when he got home.
This morning, we checked over my application for grad school, and I submitted it. I couldn’t believe I was doing this. I don’t know anything until November. We got ready, watched an episode of Entourage, then went over his parents around 3pm. We had stop and pick up some charcoal for his dad.
When we arrived at his parents, we hung out and watched the game. We ate steaks, potatoes, green beans, corn, coleslaw, hot sausage, hot dogs, and had pumpkin roll and mac’s donuts for dessert. We were so stuffed. His dad and mom are so good to us. They packed us up a doggy bag to take home.
After dinner, I painted my nails with his mom’s nail polish. She has OPI Infinite Shine Nail Polish. I love it. It lasts for a week! I only use it when I am over there. I sat at the table with everyone and painted my nails. It was a berry color for Fall, so pretty!
When we left his parents, we went to go see Annabelle. We haven’t been to the movies in so long! When we arrived at the movies, we got a drink and Sour Patch Kids. We were too full for popcorn.
At the Cinemark, they have reserved seating, so you have to pick your seats when you buy your tickets. It is so cool. Not all of the screens have it, but this one did. The seats are so plush and they recline. There is even a tray for you to put pop, and food on. I never will want to leave. I don’t know about you, but I can never seem to get comfy. I am too short for the movie chairs, but I enjoy going to the movies.
Annabelle was so good! I loved it. I haven’t been that scared at a movie in so long. I jumped a few times and was so scared. I am so ready for Halloween and Haunted houses. I love this time of year. When we got home, we got ready for bed. We were so tired and weren’t feeling all that well from eating so much, again!
