How do you like that? The whole class got complmentary passes to the screening of Little Miss Sunshine, since we'd already discussed the screenplay, and we had to reschedule all of our classes to make this outing possible, but it turns out the theater had the screening open to the public, and they sold out before any of us even got there in time to redeem our passes. We were all there more than an hour early! Even Doc and Sean didn't make it in.
Some organized promotion they've got there.
At least we got extra passes for another screening next week at a different theater, but still; that was an hour of driving we could have gone without.
Positive side- I now have many more passes to a free screening next week; enough to bring my friends with. And mom and I hit a few stores. Unfortunately one of those stores was Goodwill, and the being the unstoppable madwoman she is, mom bought a freaking couch and a wooden chair, to stuff in the trunk along with all the boxes and spare furniture parts that were already in there. It took a lot of grunting and time and planning to barely stuff everything in there (and apparently, I'm better labor than the grown men they had working there to bring the couch out and help people get things into their cars, so she politely refused their assistance in favor of the aid of her toothpick of a daughter.) It wasn't so bad, but I'm really not that great with manipulating heavy objects. Uhh, on the other plus side, got some chocolate and really yummy cereal from Trader Joes.
And then we came home, and had stewed pork and dumplings. <3 And ice cream.
She's leaving tomorrow, and my sister and I are going to have to spend the next two days watching over our cousins. I love them, but they really do need a lot of attention, so this may hack into my slacking schedule.
