More Joyology

CocktailsImage by Cayusa via Flickr

Sending you this joy cocktail for the weekend:

1. Start with one visit to the multiplex to see "Ghost Writer," the political thriller starring secret boyfriend number two, Ewan McGregor. Writers, in particular, will like this one, but so will anyone who'll enjoy a wee flash of Ewan's butt -- just a flash though, he's pretty busy escaping bad guys, solving intrigue, and looking perplexed.

2. Add a friend. You could bring your husband, boyfriend, etc. But ask yourself: will said friend appreciate Ewan's butt? If not, maybe one of the girls is a more worthy choice.

3. Sneak in food. I recommend the chocolate See's eggs you're saving for your children. (Childhood obesity is on the rise, after all. You'll be doing them a favor.) It really doesn't matter what you bring, however, as long as you can be filled with the earnest glow of knowing you're sticking it too the man, who, after all, totally tries to stick it to you with gazillion dollar popcorn.

4. If you can add a twist of free parking or found money, so much the better.

Mix together and enjoy.

On a budget? We're sending our children to private school next year so I can relate. Here's a worthy alternate, but you have to like Star Wars.

Wish you had invited me along. I watched "The Stoning of Soraya M". Trust me on this, there is not one man in that film you'd want near you.

Shohreh Aghdashloo puts in a brilliant performance

This is a recipe worth repeating!

Hm I wish you'd invited me too. I haven't been to a movie in I don't know how long. It's been eons, for sure. They closed a big multi-cinema nearby here, and since then I haven't ventured out to another theater :/

A movie without popcorn? Are you mad?

WV: Cangst. I cangs't get through a film without it.

AH: I'm a little funny this way, but I have a thing about eating food that gets stuck in my teeth. It drives me crazy, so I stick with chocolate.

I'm rather joyfully attracted to those cocktails up there in the corner...can I take one of 'em with me??? I'll take my big purse!!!

I like it. I think I'll just go on my own ~ less risk of being thrown out for being too vociferously appreciative of the wee glimpse of Ewan's butt. On the topic of snacks, chocolate also doesn't have those annoying little tooth-breaking bits that have stoically refused to pop in spite of being subjected to 250 degrees of heat.

Great fun!
I liked the alternatives too. And with those, I can take all the cocktails and chocolate I want!

You have the best ideas. I'm gonna get me a Joy cocktail.

Rois said...

And a flask of cocktails hidden in your purse right?

Olga said...

All Right! Cocktails are served.

Sounds fun! I need a relaxing escape to the movies - without the kids! The grown-up girls and I have been talking about getting out for a while. I think the time has come!

Petrea said...

This sounds like a good one. I might rent it so I can have a cocktail while I watch. I'll get some Jiffy Pop.
