quiet night in.

It was me against the candy jar today and the candy jar won.  I successfully ate my weight in chocolate.  Well, more like 6 miniature pieces, but still.  It felt like a lot.

Perfect Friday afternoon snack.

quiet night.

I’ve got a long day tomorrow at a youth ministry conference my church is hosting plus getting in a long run, so I took advantage of the opportunity to have a quiet night to myself and a movie double feature.

First up:  The Social Network.  There has been so much hype around this movie, I really didn’t know if it would live up, but I loved it!  It was great to see the portrayal of something that is so definitive of my generation on film. I know that some parts of the film are fictional, so I’d be curious to know what was fact from fiction.  The casting was exceptional; I’ll rarely complain about watching Justin Timberlake on screen (well, except for maybe Southland Tales…that movie was terrible!) and Jesse Eisenberg did a fantastic job portraying Mark Zuckerberg.  I got very easily caught up in the story and thought the script was great.  I don’t know that it’s worth of the Best Picture honor, but out of those I have seen, this is probably the closest to that thus far.

Random fact:  I was one of the first people at my alma mater to be on Facebook, way back when it was still The Facebook.  The URL for your page, when it was still exclusive to colleges, included the order in which you joined at your school.  I was 147 or something around there.

So, I’ve seen four of ten Best Picture nominees at this point.  I already wrote about The Kids are All Right, Toy Story 3, and Inception last Friday.  I still really want to see Black Swan and The King’s Speech!  I’ve got Winter’s Bone from Netflix that I’ll probably watch later tonight.  Has anyone seen it?  To be honest, I hadn’t even heard of it until the nominations came out!

Foodwise, I’ve mostly grazed on random foods, starting with a pre-movie snack of my last ( 😥 ) banana bread muffin.

Lots of tortilla chips during the movie.

And some post-movie cereal, making me sufficiently carb-ed out for the night.

Time for one more movie!  Hope y’all are having a fabulous Friday night!

Did you see The Social Network?  What did you think…Best Picture or not?

Considering the fact that my afternoon snack was a boat load of cake, those six pieces of chocolate are nothing. ha
