Saturday turned out different than I had planned. Hubby went fishing with friends. Daughter went to the Potato Festival and son was going to work. They all suggested I drive to Virginia and hang at Barnes & Nobles. I thought about the Potato Festival, but decided against it. A day in the bookstore would be fun, with no rush to get home. It is a new venture going on a Saturday, lots of kids hyped up on sugar and coffee based drinks. There was a lot of bickering, kicking and a repetitive rapping on tables. I decided this wasn't going to be where I wanted to kill a few hours of time. What's a gal to do?! ;D
A gal goes to the movies! Yes, I went alone. It reminded me of being young, between the ages of 16-21. when I worked at a movie theater. I sold tickets in the window, sometimes worked the concession stand. When Boss Man was out of town I was left in charge. One night, when I locked up my cash draw and decided to go watch the movie. I had the key and when the movie ended and the theater was locked, I would get my report done and make my deposit. I wanted to go see the movie, so I went alone. Sometimes friends would meet me...sometimes not. I didn't let it stop me from the escape and entertainment of a good film.
Today, it felt odd approaching the ticket booth and saying one ticket. I got a great seat and settled in to watch the man I love to hate. Yes, I went to THE AVENGERS. It was amazing! I love the CGI effects, the story was well done, and the human factors of our super heroes was so fun to watch. I think the Hulk was my fav. I clapped when he took a swipe at Loki, the man I <3 hate. I clapped and then the whole theater started clapping, too! I loved the witty zingers and how they blurred the lines of old school and our technology today. I love how they showed us, both have a place in our world. It was a great afternoon as Loki baited the Superheroes. I love his elfish grin, his bad boy charm, you almost feel sorry for him, yet hate him all at the same time. You have to watch THOR to get his backstory. I love the banter of the superheros as their egos factor in and how they rally together. I am so glad I went...I didn't feel alone. I always feel connected to my Dad, when I am in a theater. I kind of grew up in one. I hope you get a chance to see it and marvel at the magic of cinema. I love Stan Lee's appearance, so Hitchcock like or maybe more Stephen King. I look for it and when he appears I always smile! Loki says, he is burdened with glorious purpose. (sometime art feel this way, when my family thinks I'm a kook). Does this sound familiar? lol Have you see the movie? What did you think?!
