Saturday matinee

I decided to do something today that I had never done before.
I went to a movie. Alone.

Yep, I have traveled alone but I have never been to a movie alone.

I went to see The boy in the striped pajamas. A very disturbing movie about a German boy who befriends a Jewish boy in a concentration camp. Overall, the movie is just okay. The ending is quite disturbing.

After the movie, I went to Vroman's book store and decided on my next travel destination.

I sat in the bookstore for over an hour reading about Costa Rica. I'm so excited. I hope girlfriend will go with me.

If not, I will go.

Funny you say this. I've been working up the nerve to go alone. My ex goes by himself weekly, and I always got annoyed by that (why would you rather go alone than go with me?), and by the same token if I say I've seen a movie, he always asks with who because he knows I NEVER GO ALONE. There's just something about it that makes me feel like everyone in the theater is looking at me and thinking "Wow, she can't even find one friend to come to a movie?" LOL

You're my hero as always!
