Dinner and a movie...group style

So tonight was a change from the usual State College thing...drinking. I went to dinner and then saw a movie with Nicole, Rachel, and Brian. And you know what...it was a ton of fun. We got to chat and enjoy ourselves...minus the drunken idiots. This is not to say that I don't enjoy the nightlife of being 21+ but it was nice to have an escape from it I guess is the easiest way to state this:-D

We ate dinner at Baby's. Not your nicest food place but a fun place to go with friends. Who can resist the 50s atmosphere and grease? haha! Not much to mention about this...had shrimp and then half of a milkshake for dessert. After dinner we headed out to the theatre by the mall to see Sweet Home, Alabama. Yeah yeah...you're laughing...considering i'm pretty much in the Alabama of the north;-) Anywho, we got there waaaaay early so we bought our tickets then we walked around Big Lots until they yelled at us to leave since they were closing:P We headed back to the theatre but they STILL weren't letting anyone in so there was a mob of people. Naturally Nicole and Brian started the bickering like siblings or a married couple if you will. Rachel was amused since she had never seen it before...I'm just...well...used to it! Finally the flood gates opened and we could go in. I'd say the girl/guy ratio was one guy per 20 girls...no kidding! And I think the guys that were there were mostly those that were forced to go with their girlfriends. The movie, though unrealisitic, was enjoyable. It was that Disney fairytale, only not a cartoon! The main character was really HOT! He had blue eyes that just made me want a guy like that,.....yar! Also, Nicole ended up next to one of those really annoying movie people...you know the ones that make "oooh" "ahh" sounds consistantly right before something important happens. Predictable ending but cute nonetheless. Guess it brings out the girl in me:-)

The next part is ranting on my part....might not be so fun to read....so I made it so you have to click to read it:P

The movie made me think about a couple things. The fact that they make these movies where everyone finds their prince in shining armor so to speak. Is that depressing or what??? Not everyone walks out of their house and poof there he is. Maybe I'm bitter...I don't care. I'd like to find my prince. Yeah yeah...laugh. But I don't want to settle. See that's the problem with most people today in this country. Instead of finding someone that means the world to them...they find someone to "settle" for. At least that's what it seems. My parents didn't settle...and have been happily married 28+ years now. That is what I want. To be happy (and yes making money will be an honest bonus). To be with someone that cares for me as much as I care for him. Yes I realize this sounds like a textbook or something...but that's the end result I want. No, it does not have to be right this minute! I mean I understand that. Just sometime in the forseeable future would be nice.....

Here's a conversation I had with Nicole:
Nicole: we need to find ourselves some nice decent intelligent men.. one tall geeky roman catholic italian boy and one average height computer sports nice jewish (not orthodox!) boy
EBG818: where do we find them?
Nicole: beats me. lol. i was going to ask you!
EBG818: damn...
EBG818: see that's part of my problem
EBG818: it's really hard to find a jewish boy...i mean i'm not stingy on religion but i want to marry within it
EBG818: know what i mean?
Nicole: yep yep
Nicole: well do you guys have things... like i dont know what theyd call them but catholics have things like bible studies ?
EBG818: see the type of guy i'd like to meet doesn't go to that type of stuff
EBG818: he's like me...not out at that stuff...*sigh* this is so hard

< shameless ploy > So if you fit my criteria, send me an email ::grin::< / shameless ploy >

I already suspect what the comments will be...don't worry, there's time, etc. I know that....it's just hard. Ok, enough ranting. I'm not a whiner.....the future will tell....
