Quantum of Bad Judgement

Big news! Captain Carl took me on a date Friday night. I know!! Not only did we have dinner, but we also....get this....saw a movie. Gasp! Two date-like activities in one night! Holy crap on a cracker.

So we decided to see Quantum of was pretty good. Lots of chasing and shooting and the hotness that is Daniel Craig or whatever his name is because I really don't care what his name is, he is lickable and that is all the matters.

And of course, because we are magnets for idiots, a couple sat down behind us with 3 children under the age 5. TO SEE A JAMES BOND MOVIE. Nice. Not at all inappropriate. Fucking dumbasses.

I know my last post was all about how cool and forward thinking our parenting style is...but come on dudes. Even I wouldn't take a 3 year old to a movie that is guaranteed to have people getting killed in just about every fashion imaginable and naked chicks. Side note...this James Bond edition was disappointingly short on naked chicks. Not even cold weather nipples poking through a shirt. I think maybe there was a side boob in silhouette in the opening credits, and those chicks aren't even real...they are cartoons. Sigh.

Anyway, I spent about 10 minutes fuming to Captain Carl in a stage-whisper about how irresponsible and stupid some people are. And we see this shit every time we go to the movies. Someone actually brought a baby to see Knocked Up. Yeah, it was too little to even be able to watch the movie, and yeah it is kind of funny ironic when you think about a baby in a theater watching a movie about having a baby...but still. Dumb.

Turns out those 3 kids were incredibly well-behaved through the whole two hours of Quantumness. So I couldn't decide if that was because their parents manage to discipline their children or if it was because the kids were silent because they were shoveling scary images into their brains in order to have some dandy nightmares later. Either way, I got to watch my movie in peace. Which is more than I can say for the time I had to take the kiddo on his first date to see "Balls of Fury" and sat amongst about 100 teenagers laughing at butt and sex jokes. Ahhh, good times.

But come on people! Get a babysitter or go see something age appropriate, for nut's sake!

You and I would get along great! We are planning our movie date for when the kids are in school. I can't imagine taking mine to see this movie. They would be well behaved but there are just some places that kids don't belong. Casinos, adult movies and the spa. To name a few.

I will only go to see a movie on Sunday morning. And, I sit in the last row so that nobody can sit behind me. I'm only half joking but if someone kicks my chair, I might lose it! Hubby and I are usually the only ones in the movie theatre, which is just the way I like it!! As for parents with bad judgement, they're everywhere! You and me on the other hand, know better than to take babies to see PG-13 movie, sheesh! We should write a common sense book for new parents. Maybe there were no boobs because it wasn't rated R.

Congrats on your date! I love dates!!

Have a great week!!

You know tracey, you are right. It was PG-13. Which explains the lack of boobs. Duh. Oh well.

And yes deckled, I always marvel at how many kids there are in the casinos in Vegas. They do have some fun child-friendly venues there now, but it's Vegas Baby! Sin City! I won't be bringing my kiddo there until he's 21 and can legally gamble and drive out the bunny ranch. ha ha...kidding. kind of.

I cracked up when I saw your comment on Green Eyed Momster...Miss Yvonne! Today, I ran across my Pee Wee Herman trading cards. I even have a Cowboy Curtis hologram card. Thought I would stop by before I go and eat out of my Pee Wee lunchbox.
