I FINALLY made it to the movies today! My sister and I saw an afternoon showing of 500 Days of summer…. I heard mixed reviews on this movie- one person said they hated it and another said they loved it…so i really did not no what to expect. My overall opinion was that it was good! I wouldnt say it was AMAZING but I really really enjoyed it. In the opening scenes of the movie the narrator talks about the background of one of the main characters, Tom, and said that he was from my hometown! how strange! If you havent heard of this movie…here is the synopsis from moviefone.com:
“This is a story of boy meets girl, begins the wry, probing narrator of ‘500 Days of Summer,’ and with that the film takes off at breakneck speed into a funny, true-to-life and unique dissection of the unruly and unpredictable year-and-a-half of one young man’s no-holds-barred love affair.
Tom, the boy, still believes, even in this cynical modern world, in the notion of a transforming, cosmically destined, lightning-strikes-once kind of love. Summer, the girl, doesn’t. Not at all. But that doesn’t stop Tom from going after her, again and again, like a modern Don Quixote, with all his might and courage. Suddenly, Tom is in love not just with a lovely, witty, intelligent woman – not that he minds any of that – but with the very idea of Summer, the very idea of a love that still has the power to shock the heart and stop the world.”
Before going to the movie we stopped at Wegmans and stocked up on a little bit of bulk candy 🙂
Good and plenty, Sun Drops, Reeses pieces, & mini sweedish fish
I am so happy I finally made it to the movies! I still want to see many more movies including:
- Julie and Julia
- Funny People
- Whatever Works
i think that is it. anyone see any of these??
After the movie my sister and I went into philly and went to her boyfriend’s house. by the time we finally chose a place to grab some dinner I was STARVING- so hungry to the point that it doesnt even feel like you are hungry anymore and it just feels like you are actually just ill. it was horrible…i literally almost cried haha. perhaps i felt this way because all i had to eat was the yogurt concoction in the morning and then a little bit of candy around 2. it was about 8 before we got food again. makes sense why i was so hungry now haha…We ended up going to Slice PA and let me tell you this pizza is GOOD. like one of the best ive ever had in my life good. we got two pies… one with broccoli and spinach and one with san marzano tomato sauce with sliced provolone (not pictured)- they even have part skim mozzarella cheese and whole wheat crust and vegan cheese (Emily– you have to try this place out!)
Afterwards, we headed over to my favorite frozen yogurt spot (different from last night) called Sprinkles
Isnt tonight- minus the movies of course- a deja vu of yesterday? yes. haha oh well- i love pizza. i love frozen yogurt. so why not eat it two days in a row?? Well now I am back down the shore. Tomorrow morning my mom and I are going to grab breakfast and then Ill probably play it low key and just relax and what not during the day before heading off for the ten mile race in sea isle!
p.s. my oldest sister, Danielle, showed me this song last night and now im obsessed- daylight by Matt and Kim
