Weekend Wrap Up

This weekend was hit and miss…started with hits and ended with a miss. Friday night I had a great workout and met up with Trisha and two of her guy friends afterwards for a drink. An amaaaazing cover band was playing and we rocked out to U2 and Pearl Jam. Unfortunately I had more than 3 beers and crashed all day Saturday. On Sunday I wanted to try out the sand dune but it was a little cold out (my lame excuse). Instead I hit the gym for a marathon workout…1.5 hours strength training, 25 min treadmill workout, 50 floors on the stairclimber, and 20 min elliptical. I needed to get all the partying out of my system : )

Before I go on with my weekend, I should confess that I rarely watch movies. There…I said it. The thought of being cramped in a theater for 2 hours usually isn’t my top choice on a Friday or Saturday night. And right now I’m getting endless Blockbuster messages reminding me that I haven’t returned an old Audrey Tatou French flick I rented 3 weeks ago. I’ve been spending a lot of time with a friend of mine who works in film, and she was probably biting her tongue when I told her the last flick I saw in the theater was Sex and the City. Here’s the deal…my friends will usually pick a movie without asking me if I’d like to see it. It’s hardly ever the movie I would have picked. Anyway, I kept an open mind last night for The Wrestler even though I could think of 10 other movies I would have seen instead. I heard it was inspiring and that the acting was impressive. 2 hours later I walked out feeling depressed and agitated. There was nothing inspiring to me about this flick…a true downer with a lot of gore in my opinion…not to mention WWF meets 80s tunes and strip clubs. The acting was great, but it was hardly something I wanted to be watching before starting up another work week. So next time I’m sticking to Sunday evenings at Coffee Bean with a good book and a latte.

I haven't seen The Wrestler. All I've really heard a lot about it except about the acting.

But a latte and a book does sound awfully nice.

Wow, you go girl! Sounds like you got in a crazy intense workout. All I could squeeze out after my double bender this weekend was a measly 3.5 mile run. Ugh.

I saw Watchmen last night, pretty good movie but WAY WAY WAY too long. I also hate being cramped up in the theatre for any more than 2 hours and ALL movies seem to be longer than 2 hours these days!

Yeah, the Wrestler does NOT seem like my type of movie. I shudder at the thought of having to look at Mickey Rourke for over 5 sec. :S I actually like going to the movies, we usually go when there aren't too many people (late at night) and just spread out :)
