When I go to the movies I like to get the popcorn and soda. Sometimes I get a hot dog and soda. Sometimes I get popcorn, soda and candy. And sometimes I get a hot dog, popcorn and soda. I know. It’s wicked expensive. What can I say, I have expensive tastes.
Sure, I could smuggle in a can or bottle of soda, but frankly, I prefer fountain Coke. I have smuggled in popcorn before, but I don’t like to. I felt guilty. And they frown on big bags or backpacks nowadays, making dishonest snack smuggling harder.
Today I was not too hungry, so I got a kid pack. [Pictured above.] It has just enough popcorn and you can get either M&M’s or Gummy Bears. I usually get the M&M’s, but have had so much chocolate lately I got the Gummy bears today. The soda size is smaller than I like, but since it is a kid pack, I suppose it’s just the right size. Funny though, they only have one kind of straw. So the straw I used is GINORMUS – 3 times the size of the cup itself!
I like to arrive at least 20 minutes before the movie starts. Okay, that’s a lie. It’s really 30 minutes to an hour. Saying “20 minutes” makes me seem more normal. I like to get a good seat, read my book for a while, go pee a few times. I start getting antsy at about 15 minutes before the movie starts, especially if I’m not at the movie theatre yet. Today I arrived a half hour before the movie, bought my ticket, went pee, and then bought my kids pack. [I washed my hands around there somewhere too.]
I saw Arthur Christmas: Totes recommend! Very funny, appropriate for all ages.
Anyway, before Arthur Christmas they played a video. A Justin Bieber video. I have, to this point in my life, avoided watching any Justin Bieber videos. And here I was, trapped in my movie seat, having paid $7.50 for my ticket (matinee price, yo), watching a Justin Bieber video (which follows*). And it was okay in its steam punky, Santa-clausy, break-dancery, Justin-Bieber-wants-to-be-next-Michael-Jacksony goodness. See what I mean:
So, Merry Christmas everyone.

What do you think? Do you like Justin Bieber?
