Jodi at the Cinema

This week has just FLOWN by.  Time flies when you have lots to do.  That’s a good thing.  I’ve got the contribution statements ready to mail… and tomorrow is Friday (my favorite day of the week) – can it get any better?

Jodi and I have been talking about going to see “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”.  I heard that it’s looonnnggg.  Jodi has a tendency to take some of her better siestas in the movie theater, so if it’s not really good… she’ll be sleeping like a babe. 

I had to wake her up during (my favorite part – Legolas swing mounting his horse during battle) the “The Lord of the Rings” at the IMAX!!  (Who falls asleep at the IMAX?  Jodi.)

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve caught her sleeping at the movies.  I don’t think she watched 30 minutes of “Bicentennial Man”. 

Ok, can’t really blame her for that.  That was one LONG, STRANGE movie. 

One time we went on a Sunday afternoon - after having eaten Mexican food for lunch - and she was pretty much in a coma during all of “Pride and Prejudice”, which I loved!

Anyway, the only way she’ll stay awake is if this movie is REALLY good.  What do y’all think? Any opinions??

I don't think a rat terrier could stay awake for 30 min. of Bicentennial Man.

I can fall asleep in them too if it isn't too cold! But you know me, I could sleep anywhere!

Never saw Bicentennial Man but it sounds like a sleeper for me for sure! I can certainly see with a tummy full of Mexican food, boring movie and the right body temp? Yep, I'd be asleep too!

I don't sleep in the movie theatre but we can't rent movies because after about 30 min I'm asleep when we are home.
Benjamin Buttons is good but it is long. I had to get up and walk around during the middle of it - but I'm almost 10 months pregnant.
Let us know if she stays awake! :-)

I don't think I would go to sleep for a long movie.....but at the age I am my knees hurt if I don't get up and move around!

Have a WONDERFUL weekend! I picked up a trip and am in El Paso!

I was told that this was a really good but sad movie. I would bet that she might make it through this one since everyone is waiting to see....

I haven't seen Benjamin Buttons, but I WILL say that I do some of my best sleeping in the movie theater! My youngest daughter gets so mad at me when I fall asleep and she'll keep waking me up. It makes her mad that I paid money and then fell asleep. I don't know why it bothers her---it's MY money!! lol

Let us know if she stays awake.
