My littlies have gone up to my parent's house for two nights. It's the first time I have spent time way from them like this. I got home to an empty, quiet house and Matt. Then together we stumbled through the evening. We thought we'd go to a movie. But nope. Unless we were primed for an 11:10am or 5:32pm screening, we were out of luck.
Thankfully we found a movie to go to. Not what we were after - but anything. A mercy movie. Which turned out to be a really funny movie and a nice impromptu night out together.
Have you seen The Other Guys?
When we walked in, we were a little late. We were being SPONTANEOUS! LASTMINUTE.COM! WE'RE CRAZY! What could be crazier than an impulsive date!? So I thought, oh no, I've brought us to the wrong movie - this is not what I thought it was going to be like. But dudes, it is totes funny. I am a mad keen Will Ferrell fan. I regularly bring Will Ferrell DVDs home, much to Matt's bewilderment. Some are good. Some are not so good. But Will Ferrell and I are kindred spirits. Just like Anne of Green Gables and Gilbert Bligh.
And yowser - Eva Mendes is HAWT! Look at her. Man she is amazing. PHWOAR-A-LICIOUS!
Shall I give a star rating? Yes I think I will. I'll go for FOUR STARS! It was the perfect remedy to feeling forlorn about our small fry being away.
And if you don't think this movie is for you, well this might just be right up your alley.
