Last night/early this morning, Annie and I went to see The Hunger Games. It was our first midnight premiere. We went in a group of 15 people, of whom we knew about 6. We waited in line for 2 hours. Annie wore her Peeta shirt and had a Katniss braid. There was so much teen age energy, I can't believe none of them spontaneously combusted!
The movie was a very good adaptation. Almost every one was happy. I will admit to getting teary-eyed several times. I will also admit to having to pick through a packed theater to go to the bathroom during the flick. What can I say, I have a weak bladder!
Thanks to the other mom who carpooled with me, I was able to drive to and from a movie theater I had never been to, and still have no idea how I got there.
I don't know that I will attend many more midnight showings, I am way tired today. SO thankful that Howard is working from home today. Annie had a babysitting gig at 9 am this morning. Crazy girl.
