saturday morning - garrett went to weight watchers. where he managed to bring his total weight loss up to almost 40 pounds. (less than a half pound to go...) i am so proud of him. slightly jealous, too. cause while i'm not tracking points like he is, i have been cutting back, eating better and drinking so much water. and i'm not seeing any results lately. poop. anyway... that's a whole 'nother dilemna. so we already had plans set to go to dinner and a movie with tib & adam. but as we were trying to figure out what to do on a cold, semi-snowy sort of day, we both expressed the desire to just watch movies. and since we'd already agreed to see Ghost Town with Tib, we decided that we were still allowed to go and see the Duchess. and boy oh boy, am I glad we saw both.
both movies, in their own way, were fantastic.
The Duchess - i love historical fiction, especially English. especially anything in the Jane Austen era. this isn't a Jane Austen movie, but I daresay if you likey those guys, you'll like this. anyway - i loved the movie. i highly recommend going to see it! Ghost Town was definitely hilarious. i love Ricky Gervais. he played Steve Carell's character in the BBC version of the Office. he is outrageous. I love him. this movie is entertaining - definitely one i would recommend if you're looking for a whole bunch of laughs.
but the best part of the day, was the laughs that Garrett and I had on our own. We decided that if we were going to live it up for the day, we were going to do it right. so we bought a large marge popcorn & super sodas. i got my cherry coke refilled at least thrice. so you can only imagine that by the time we were done watching the Duchess, I really had to tinkle. as we're walking out, garrett was carrying the popcorn and his drink. i was rushing out so i could go... when all of a sudden i hear, "Hayley - help!" his pants were falling off of him. that's how much weight he's losing. do i help? eventually - after i regain composure. i laughed pretty hard. you know - the kind where you're doubled over, silent laughing. yep, that was me, while he mooned any and everyone behind him. good times. then... in between movie & dinner, we had about 45 minutes. just enough time to hit the target. i'd drained the bladder once, but by the time we got to the car, i hadda go again. i was still holding the drink and popcorn & as i got in, i noticed i had to tie my shoe. so i hand my drink to garrett and say, "can you hold this while i pee?" cause i was very preoccupied with that, apparently. this time it was garrett who was laughing his butt off. i needed to tie my shoe, you see, not pee in his front seat. i couldn't stop laughing either which only made the pee situation worse, i kept just saying "i'm going to pee my pants!!!" so in we go to the target to purchase garrett some pants that won't fall off his butt. we had a hard time finding his size. so while he was in trying on a few pairs, i found a pair of jeans that were the right size. didn't pay an ounce of attention to the style or cut - just took them to him. a few minutes later, i get a text from him saying "are these skinny pants?" and out he walked to show me. i almost peed my pants again. they were the trendy, super skinny, don't look good on anyone including teenage girls, skinny jeans. oh, boy - good times. obviously, we went with a different pair of jeans for him.
so we go meet tib and adam for dinner... good times. you can read tib's account of the evening here. on our way back to the theater, a dream car of mine was parked next to garrett's. i used to be such a freak about cars, i love them - makes and models... well this guy was a porshe cayenne & i said something along the line of "ohhh, if i were ever rich - that'd be my car," when garrett tells me he doesn't know that car. i unreasonably yelled, "IT'S A PORSHE!" cause i guess in my wierd mind, everyone should know and recognize porshe's. when i came to my senses, i realized how ridiculous i sounded & we laughed some more.
i love the silly, ridiculous laughs we share. and i'm also glad that he can handle my loud voice. we laughed so much on saturday - it was an awesome day.
