The Proposal

The movie that Nyx saw while undating Lysander. I just watched it with my family, and it was unequivocally hilarious. On my way out, I saw someone with blonde wavy hair in front of me. I was like, "wow, another person with hair like Julie and Harriet. That's unusual." Then I realized that it was actually Julie.

I ran up behind her and grabbed her shoulders. Julie, being Julie, promptly panicked. "Oh my god," I laughed. "I so scared you." So what if I did it in a highly inarticulate manner? Cammie was there as well. She told me the story of how she and Julie came to see The Proposal about three times, and I'm still not sure if I totally understand it, but here it goes.

They were going to see The Ugly Truth, but Julie let slip to her Dad that it was rated R, so they said they'd see The Proposal instead. Then, when they went to buy tickets, they decided to ask for tickets to The Ugly Truth, and if they could get them, they'd see that. They successfully got the tickets (Julie and Cammie passed for 17! Ohmigawsh), but Julie got worried about lying to her Dad, so they chickened out (which isn't at all to say that I wouldn't have done the same thing) and went to The Proposal. This is the exact opposite of the typical theater change operation, in which the under-17s attempt to sneak into an R rated movie.

Then, my family and I went to Stew's and used free ice cream coupons. I learned that it is very difficult to steer a shopping cart one handed.

Hey there! I saw your comment on thefbomb about Half Magic, and I just wanted to thank you because I'd completely forgotten about it! I'm 20 now, but I'm going to check and see if it isn't still lurking under my bed.

Also, nice blog!

The story is pretty much accurate, but you left out the fact that Cammie and I didn't realize that the move was rated R until we actually got to the theater. However, this is a lesson to you, they don't ID there! According to her dad, The Proposal got better reviews than The Ugly Truth, anyway, so everything still went well.

From my experiences, it is very difficult to steer a shopping cart under any circumstances.
