...and a triple espresso so you can stay awake." Okay, so it wasn't an all night movie marathon, and it was an affogato, not a triple espresso, but we did stay awake! Hubs has been
complaining whinging noting that we have been having an earlier bed time than usual - actually, the comments were around the fact that he had a bed time - and wanted to stay up later on the weekends. So I went one better and planned a night of movies on Friday night. We had nothing pressing all weekend, so I figured we could sleep all day Saturday after staying up all night.
I was keen to see Avatar, but we couldn't get it working on the computer, so we started with Back to the Future III. We had watched I and II in the last couple of months so we completed the trilogy. We then watched Kung Fu Panda which we've been meaning to watch for ages and it was SO good! It had laughs all the way through and a lovely message at the end that we can all relate to. The third movie took a bit of deciding on, but we ended up going with The Royal Tenenbaums which I had seen AGES ago and liked it and thought Hubs might too (I was right).
By this stage it was 4:40am and we decided to call it a night. We had consumed choc-dipped strawberries, bullets (my FAVOURITE!!), and I made some choc-dipped snakes as well so we were pretty buzzy but very very sleepy indeed. We crashed into bed and slept soundly... until the phone rang at 10am! Should have thought to put them on silent!! We had another nap that afternoon (from 4-6pm!) and got around to watching Avatar that evening. It was pretty good! As Hubs calls it, Fern Gully with guns, but I really rather enjoyed it. It wasn't in 3D but I still got the general gist.
So that was our movie marathon weekend! Now it'll take me a few days to catch up on sleeeeeeeep :-)
