Movies On My Mind

Sunday was one of those days of a little of this, a little of that and it’s hard to remember what I did!  I hate those kinds of days.  I feel much better when I have a clear feel for what I’m doing and at the end of the day I can actually tell you what I’ve done.

Up early and puttering around the house, I did a few things.  Checked in with Gail because she had mentioned the possibility of going to the movies.  Gosh, we haven’t done that in forever! 😦

We set a time and I told Ralph so that he could get ready.   I went over to Gail’s to help her with a few things.  When I got back home, Ralph had changed his mind about going so I headed off with everyone.

What did we chose to see…Super 8!

Since I’d first heard about this movie, it sounded intriguing.  The verdict…I Loved It!  It had the feel of an old-fashioned science fiction movie.  The kids in it were excellent.  It was scary and funny and worth the time.  I won’t spoil anything for anyone who hasn’t seen it, but if you haven’t, be sure to stay for the credits.  You’ll miss something terrific if you don’t.  I’m glad I went and sorry that Ralph didn’t see it, I know he would have enjoyed it.

After the movie, we were all hungry. After much too much discussion, we settled on the Golden Corral.  I’m not always a fan of buffets, but I like going there because they have an excellent salad bar section.  I can build the salad the way I like it and they have a wide variety of choices.

My first plate…

My second plate look much the same…both were delicious and I should have stopped there.  I had been thinking for several years about something I had at Golden Corral in Florida.  It’s basically a huge peanut butter cookie with melted chocolate spread on it and sprinkled with chopped nuts.  I didn’t take a photo, but Gail and I shared a piece.  Still trying to figure out how to count it.  But I must say I enjoyed it.  I keep saying I’m going to find a recipe for peanut butter cookies and make one of these myself.  I’ll have to work on it.  I’ll have to give it all away, otherwise I know I’d be in trouble! 😉

When I got home, Ralph and I spent most of the evening watching the Twilight Zone Marathon on SyFy.  No matter how many times we’ve seen them, we keep watching anyway.

We’ll probably watch more of it today.

That’s how we usually feel after watching one of the marathons!!

Somewhere in there we need to watch “1776“…

…and “Independence Day.”

It’s one of our traditions. 

Anyway, Everyone have a wonderful 4th of July.  Remember the reason for the Holiday, remember those who fought and died for our Freedom and those who still do so today.

Have a great day.

  1. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Super 8. I’m going to wait until my husband gets home and then we’re going to see it together. Science fiction is my favourite movie genre.

  2. I was wondering what that movie was like. I’m not a huge action fan though – but maybe something like that would get me out of my mind for a while! 🙂

    Love your blog name! TRUE! 🙂

    • The movie is just good old fashioned fun! I really enjoyed it. Just checked your blog. Thanks for commenting and glad you like BCDC. I’m enjoying the fact that I’m starting to get more comments and hearing from people I don’t actually know! Check back often, I’ll be posting every day because I’m participating in NaBloPoMo. Have a great day!

  3. We watched 1776 today (a tradition for us). We are hoping to see Super Eight soon. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed it 🙂

    • We didn’t get to 1776. Watched Independence Day first and then the Phillies game was on so I tried to catch the end of that. So excited that Teddy will be coming soon. Guess you’ll be happy to see Jeanne, too…hee hee. That’s so wonderful. Can’t wait to see more pictures. Take care, Ginny.

  4. Thanks for the movie recommendations.
