Loner

I went and saw a movie all by myself today. And I liked it. I've never done that before. It was partially because of family drama and the need to avoid it, but mostly it was a desire to do something I'd never done before. Ya'll know that I hate, hate, hate, to be alone. It was good for me to sit all by myself. I don't know if I'll make a habit of this, but it definitely made my normal commentary non-existent. It just isn't as fun without someone you know to whisper obnoxious or interesting comments to. I'm sure that theaters everywhere are hoping that I keep it up, since it shuts me up properly. I was very very bad during Star Wars. I laughed out loud several times. When it wasn't funny. I made my sister laugh so hard that the folks in front of us turned around and gave us the Evil Eye.
So officially, I definitely prefer to see movies with other people. But going it alone wasn't as scary as I thought it'd be. I'm gonna try one new thing every week. I'll let you know how it goes.

I see some movies with younger kids who either 1 think it's uncool to sit with me or 2 want to sit way up front. So I have seen a hnadful of movie in theory by myself. It's really not bad.

I LOVE watching movies alone! On Kat's inspiration, I saw two movies in New York by myself.
