Yes, I do realize that is 12:26 in the morning and I am typing a blog post. I also realize that I am going to wake up at 7:15, take a shower, put makeup on, do my hair, eat breakfast, and wait for E to wake up around 8:15. Let’s get real here, I never stay up!! So tonight I am saying, what the heck!! There is nothing crazy important that needs to be done tomorrow so I am spoiling myself and having some me time with my hubby!
Tonight we watched “The Watchmen” movie. When I was in college my sophomore english class had to read this comic book and continuously write about what we thought was going to happen next. I am sure my teacher was snickering when he knew that all of us had no flipping clue what was going to happen next, nor did we want to guess. Well I ended that year with a 5 page paper stating why I did not like this comic book. Why did I not like it? I couldn’t figure out who was who, what they were doing, or why and when the end happened and the person that did “it” was reviled, I sadly didn’t even remember who he was. That’s the thing that I don’t like about comic books, you can read and reread and stare at the pictures all day long but ultimately, you have no clue what the heck is going on!!!!!!!!!! So I bet he is probably snickering again right now at the fact that the one student who protested how much she hated this comic book actually watched the movie. And now I get to snicker 🙂
A quote from my husband to his friends via video game bluetooth, “It wasn’t that great, I didn’t even really feel for any of the characters. I like to care about who is going to die and who is going to live and it’s hard when you don’t even really know the character or the back story. It really wasn’t that good.”
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!! Thank you. Point proven. This story line, needed more .. oh i don’t know. STORY! And that is all I have to say.
Now you are probably wondering, if this movie was so bad then why did you stay up until 12:30 to tell me? Well after we watched the movie B decided to play video games and honestly, it’s a lot more fun than The Watchmen.
Also a little sidenote of amazingness that happened in my MOST AMAZING day since January started 😀 I crocheted an entire skane while sitting through that three-hour madness! We are totally watching more movies friday nights and staying up late so I can bust out some awesome uninterrupted craftiness.
Hope everyone else is having a great morning, night, whatever 😛
