A Movie On My Own or A Girl's Day In

I don't usually watch movies without my hubby. It has become a ritual for us to watch movies together at home. While we eat dinner or eat we have the TV on, and since there is nothing usually on TV, we end up watching a movie. Today I watched a movie all on my lonesome because it was a girlie flick and he just didn't want to see it because our friend's comment about it was, "It's a good movie, but a depressing chick flick." So, I told hubby I would watch the movie while he was at work, which is what I did today. The movie in question is THE HOURS.

For some reason I didn't watch it on the TV in the living room but here at the computer. Probably because during the day this is where I spend most of my day doing my writing goodness and dreaming my dreams, and hoping something will come of them one day to the rest of the world. Even if the rest of the world doesn't like what I write, I get an absolute blast out of what I do. It entertains me, and the computer is a central place for me. So, I suppose it shouldn't surprise me that the one time I watch a movie solo in months I should do it on the computer screen (17" at that), with the dogs at my feet, a nice glass of soda at my side, and a cheese sandwich to fill my belly.

The movie was excellent. It made me cry and think. It made me want to write better than Virginia Woolf (impossible but hey) and to write something of lasting value where people twenty years down the road will be making movies about (hopefully good movies).

For 114 minutes I was lost in a world of just myself and actors on a screen and enjoyed every single second of it. I participated with the screen in a way I haven't done in ages. It was a guilty pleasure. And I want to do it again.

I don't want to watch every single movie alone, but some movies I do want to watch all by my lonesome just to see if there is something different I gain from them. What will I get from watching Big Fish on my own? No, not going to watch that one just yet, the loss of my own Dad is just a little bit too recent, but yes, I do want to watch that one on my own. I may even go to the video store and go down the isles and pick out some movies I want to watch just on my own.

This has been something I have actually threatened in the past but never done. It seemed so unfair. Now...now I'm going to do it. I'm going to revel in a once-a-week movie just for myself here at the computer and let my mind wander into whatever realm it chooses without regret, into its own guilty pleasure and see what comes of the choices.

Watching movies with my hubby is something I dearly love to do, but this is something I also enjoy doing, now I've done it. It is sort of a "girl's day in" sort of thing. Yes, a girl's day in.

What will be my next choice for my "girl's day in"? An Elvis movie? Titanic? No, I have not seen that one. There are actually a lot of movies I haven't seen because I didn't want to force "girlie movies" onto my hubby. So, why not see some of them on my own? Yes, it sounds like a plan to me.
