Or should I say afternoon?
All a matter of when you read this post. So whichever it is... hope it's HAPPY.
I had a decent weekend. I didn't do too much, but just enough. I don't do too well when I am running hard. And there was none of that. Thank goodness.
Anyway, I wanted to go the movies on Saturday, but whoops... there was a Triple F Posse meeting. That's a meeting of the Financial Freedom Fighters.
There have been a couple of meetings I have missed. That's because I didn't get an email about them. But I will try to keep up with them from now on. My sister came over and we rode to the meeting together.
It was good to catch up with everyone. I think since the last meeting I attended (in February), much has gone on. I will detail my thoughts in another post.
On Sunday after church, I went to see this movie.
I almost didn't make it, because I took a nap after church. But I ended up going to a 4:00 show.
Been waiting on that one for a good minute.
That was a good movie. I wouldn't call it "Great", but it definitely kept my attention. The tension was turned up from the very beginning.
The best thing about the movie was the villain, Koba:
He's what made the movie good. I was sitting there thinking "Can someone knock that dude out? Geez."
Now, what made my movie the most interesting was seeing it in the VIP lounge. I'd never heard of such and I was curious. That plus the 3D fee brought my ticket price up to $17. Yikes.
But I was curious. I didn't even know this particular theater had a VIP lounge.
They got it where you can't sneak in, because they card you at the entrance.
I tell you what, it is NICE up in there. The seats were leather recliners and very wide. Almost like being at home. And you could order food... ribs and steaks and chicken. And wine and champagne in real champagne glasses was available. Very nice. Folks were all dressed up. And there I was in my shorts and t-shirts and nikes.Who knew they had a VIP lounge stuck waaaaaay back off in the back of the theater? I never knew.
"This sure is nice," I said, as I looked around all wide-eyed and ate cherries out the plastic bag I had tucked away in my big purse. "This is cool."
Would I do it again? No. I was just curious.
I enjoyed my $17 VIP experience IMMENSELY. Yes I did.
I didn't care for the 3D. I prefer 3D IMAX, but it wasn't available in that format. So next time I will just go to the standard film if it is not available in 3D IMAX.
That's about it for my weekend. The rest was the usual. My knee is still healing, so I wasn't able to do any yard work. And I wasn't all that upset about that. LOL
Quote of the Week. Either your troubles make you better, or they make you bitter. We must always examine what's going on in our hearts.- T.D. Jakes
That's a good one. As I get older, I am looking for the lessons in my troubles. I am looking to grow from my troubles. But I do have a couple of things I am bitter about. I am continuously working on that.
Song of the Week. "Angel" by Angela Winbush
I love that song. By a real sanger. Enough said.
And I love R&B videos from the 80s. Just stand up there and sing the song, honey. None of this crazy off the wall production. None of this elaborate dance routine. Just put on your flyest outfits sang the song.
That's it for me. Sweepstakes still in full effect until August 13 or thereabouts. Leave a comment to enter.
Git your money... honey.
Have a good week.
Not by default, but by design... And on purpose.
