Why some people need to spank their children...

My weekend thus far...
Friday- Went and saw The Brother’s Grimm. Was not too bad, but not really great either. It was kind of a midlevel movie that would be a fun rental if you have kids. Darian said it had some cool parts, but for the most part was pretty silly.

Saturday- Went to see The Exorcism of Emily Rose- This was totally on a whim. Darian had saved up her allowance money from keeping her room clean to buy the new Inuyasha video so we were downtown at Suncoast and then just wandering around in the mall. We went by the mall theatre and she asked if we could go see a movie. I said sure why not. She wanted to see this particular movie. I said no, it is probably rated R. Guess what, it is PG-13! That pretty much sealed the deal.
The movies started out promising but two minutes after it started this flood of teenagers started to fill in the seats all around us. Before you knew it we were stuck between three rows of them. They all stuck their legs up on the seat in front if them and all started talking. One guy was reading every name that came up on the screen in opening credits. I think they were on drugs. (Like- Hey I know, let’s all eat mushrooms and go see a scary movie!) I leaned forward and told them to kindly shut the fuck up. They turned around probably expecting to see an old lady sitting there and found me, which completely confused them so they turned back around before saying anything smart back and were quiet for about 5 minutes. Then the talking started again, the entire theatre shushing them, it sucked. Darian and I finally moved to the other side of the theatre.
I don’t think I could tell you if this movie was good or not just because every time they had a build up scene the kids would talk or else their cell phone would ring and 4 of them would leave the theatre to take the call and then come back a few minutes later. They were sitting really close to the front so no one could miss this. Their cell phones rang loudly at least 8 times. (Their parents should have spanked them more growing up! Flipping brats!)

Needless to say I complained after the movie and got two free passes for another movie. I started a trend because as I was getting my passes people were lining up behind me to do the same thing.
The manager just sat there with the passes and handed them out saying, “I’m sorry” “I’m so sorry”… The end.
I told Darian to take a long hard look at those teens. I told her, “You see them, if you hang out with them in high school you can look forward to an exciting adult life of making $5.75 and hour.” She understood what I meant. Scared straight I tell you!

Oh and the funniest moment on Saturday- At the mall some guy walked up and shoved a flyer in my hand. It took me about five seconds to realize that it was a scientologist flyer. I chased him down and handed it back and said "I'm sorry, I don't need this, I don't aspire to go into acting."
The look on his face- Priceless!

Today, we are going to do the Puyallup
One of our friends invited us along, so I said, why not? I have a coupon that I need to use anyhow!

I was in your hometown this weekend and had a great time. Seattle is one of the most beautiful cities without being completely strange (strange to me is anything outside of the NW so go figure). Anyway, I almost got talked into going to the fair but I wanted to stay in the city. I hope you had fun.
