You have a baby. In a BAR.

You guys, I have the Tigger song stuck in my head and I don't know why. It's driving me crazy because that might be the most annoying song ever, except for maybe the Barney song which was used as torture in The Men Who Stare at Goats FOR GOOD RAISIN.

Anyway. Last night, we went to an advanced screening of Scott Pilgrim because Joe got free tickets because OF COURSE HE DID. I don't want to spoil anything, but I will say I super enjoyed it times 10. I'm not sure what I would have thought if I hadn't read the books, but I feel like it would have still been enjoyable. There were plenty of lols and my only complaint is that the people behind us had obviously never even heard of Scott Pilgrim because they spent the majority of the movie saying things like, "wut...," "that doesn't make sense," and, "huuuuuuuuuuh?" and I hated them and wanted them to leave but they didn't because who passes up a free movie? Not those people. I really wanted to murder them in the face, you guys, but I didn't because I also really wanted to see the whole movie.

It was an incredibly well-cast movie, from Young Neil to Roxy Richter, although I wasn't too impressed with whatserface who played Ramona Flowers. I could look it up but I don't feel like it, so you do it. I think her name is Mary Something Something. Have fun, detectives.

This week seems really busy and I'm not sure why, other than I don't normally go to the movies on a Tuesday. I haven't worked out at all this week, but I have managed to not eat a bunch of junk food for every meal, so that's a win win (win). However, my bridal shower is this weekend and all bets are off because there will be snacks. And drinks. Because my bridal shower is IN A BAR. THAT'S RIGHT. Wishes really do come true.

I currently have Katy Perry, "California Gurls [sic]," stuck in my head, so maybe we can trade?

"Murder them in the face" might be my new line, so thank you for that.

Yay, bridal shower in a bar! I hope you have a great time. Sounds pretty impossible NOT to, actually.

mg! I don't know what it is about that song, but it gets stuck in my head all the time. I hates it. I wish someone would make Katy Perry go far away.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead played Ramona Flowers. She was decent. I think Ellen Wong upstaged her.

as someone who has never read the books, i will tell you how i like it. which means yes, i am actually going to the movie theater. planning to, anyway.

Jennie said...

Joe, you know who I would have liked to see as Ramona Flowers? Lizzy Caplan.

kat, that sounds excellent. I highly recommend the books, too, and they take like two seconds each to read. Maybe three seconds.

You can call me, 'Sir' said...

Great. Thanks for the Tigger song. I'm sending you hate. Can you feel it?

Registering at a liquor store would certainly narrow the gift selection, but might also result in your receiving cheap knock-offs like Jim's Vodka-like Alcohol Product or El Toro Fuego Tequila Beverage. Then you or Joe will go blind because you decided to drink them on a dare. It all ends in tears is what I'm saying.

Joe G. said...

Lizzy Caplan would have been AMAZING as Ramona. Oh, how I heart her.

Jennie said...

Sir, I'm sorry, I really am, but now I have that Katy Perry crap stuck in my head. I can't decide which is worse.

Joe, is she on the list?
