Weekend's a bust

This weekend was strange. It was pretty much nothing that we had in mind for this weekend. Our weekend ended up changing so much over the course of the week and even the day. We had lots of things that didn't end up working out.
-Go camping with friends at Capitol Reef
-Go to Festival of Colors
-Do homework (on Hal's part, not mine)
-Do something other than play on pinterest all day (on my part, not Hal's)

So pretty much this weekend ended up being a bust. We did end up using one of our living social deals to go see The Adjustment Bureau.
A lot of people compared this to Inception, and so they didn't like it. It's nothing like Inception. Think of it as a suspenseful love story, and then you'll love it. I loved it, but I pretty much have a girl crush on Emily Blunt, and who doesn't love Matt Damon? The ending was a little anti-climatic though. I wish they had shown them in the future like, him eventually becoming president or something like that, then it wouldn't just resolve and then end 2 seconds later. Either way though, I liked it. I always know I really like a movie if I watch it once and want to see it again the next day.

But the craziest part of the movie...was the couple sitting right by us. We were in a tiny theatre, and I mean tiny. There was a couple sitting at the end of our row (also known as 1 seat away from me) and in Hal's words " works" Yeah.... They were probably around 40, and were both larger people, and things just kept getting weirder. Like weirder as in "seriously, do you have any movie theatre etiquette" type of weird.

They were sitting all over each other. Like he had his arms around her, and his arms were linked...but they weren't little people. She had her boots off, and had her bare feet all over the movie theatre floor. EWWW! Seriously, Ew. I don't care if you take your shoes off in a movie, I really don't, but don't take them off if your feet have the possibility to stink, and don't take them off  if you don't have any socks on. So they were talking during the previews, no big deal, they're previews. But then the movie starts and they keep talking. And not a whisper so I can tell you're whispering, and trying to be quiet, but instead they full on talking. if I was trying to listen to them, I could understand what they were saying. And they were doing it non stop!

Then it gets better. His phone goes off. In the middle of the movie. And he pulls it out and looks at it. And then he shows his lady and talks to her about it. In the middle of the movie! After he put his phone away they kept talking. At one point, we couldn't hear the movie over them talking so Hal goes "Shhhhh" As I sink down in my seat since I'm in-between them. They guy totally turned and stared at Hal, but you better believe they didn't talk for the rest of the movie. Who does that? Who? Everyone talks at some point, but it's called a whisper, people, whisper.

Side note: A few weeks ago I won an awesome giveaway on Allison's blog. I won a CSN Gift card. I have NO idea what to get. It's hard to buy things when you have no idea if you'll be living in the country in 6 months. So...I need some advice, have you ever bought anything from CSN before? They sell pretty much everything so it's so hard to choose. I only have until the end of the month, so give me some advice to help narrow my search, quick!

I have his Harry Potter 5 (La Orden Del Fenix) book.

And I think that has got to be one of the most annoying things ever is to have people who won't stop talking in a movie theater, although Hal's comment did make me laugh. Maybe I'll go see The Adjustment Bureau now, to treat myself after giving in to a Western :)...
