Both children are at a sleep over tonight. So what shall the grownups do?
I'm bringing home three movies from the library: Sideways, The Prestige, and Disturbia.
Honestly, I could care less about any of these movies. If it were up to me, I'd spend an hour playing Wii and then the rest of the evening reading.
The last movies that I brought home for Dave and I to watch were Juno and Thank you for smoking. I really liked Thank you for smoking because I thought it was very smart, but I thought Juno was just kind of weird. But I wanted to know what all the buzz was about.
The movies I'd really like to watch would be: When Harry met Sally, because that's my New Year's Eve movie and I didn't get to watch it this New Year's Eve; or, Lord of the Rings -- the entire trilogy. I don't think Dave has watched any LOTR movies from beginning to end.
Part of me feels like we should make the effort to get together with other child-free friends, but I just don't feel like making the effort to make conversation. We went out to dinner Tuesday with another couple and we had members of Dave's family over New Year's Eve, so I'm all conversationed out. Nobody wants to talk about things I find interesting anyway. Nobody has read the books I have read, either (other than my 2-person book club) so it's hard to find common ground.
Speaking of the 2-person book club -- got a book suggestion? I have no idea what's good in fiction, though I am listening to The Wite Tiger on CD and enjoying it very much.
