By the time that you are reading this, it will be too late.
The 35th annual Pizza and a Movie Day will have passed, and unless you were one of 5 lucky, beautiful and oh so talented people (and two and a half last minute almost additions), you missed it.
It's not that I didn't want you to attend. In fact, I probably personally invited you. Some of you. At least one or two that might be reading this anyway. Or perhaps my lovely wife did. And there were at least two of you that had to cancel at the last minute. To commemorate you, we poured some Diet Coke on the ground in your honour. (Not really, but I did lose my napkin under the table, so it's kind of the same thing.) Anyway, too late now. No sense crying over spilled milk, right?
Big shout out to David, Lilli and Adelaide (the two and a half last minute almost additions). Adelaide wins for cutest in person happy birthday wish of the day. When we have kids, we're getting a "woof hat" for them too.
Had a great birthday, had some great pizza, and saw a pretty good movie. What more could I ask for, right?
I'm good with birthdays. It's as close as you're ever going to get to having a personal holiday without doing something awesome. And even if you do, you have to die before you get one and then sleeping in is the least of your worries.
If you're interested, The Adjustment Bureau was fine. It was not amazing, but it was far from terrible. I doubt it will be a blockbuster, but it'll do just fine. And really, nobody will cry for Matt Damon even if it tanks. Because nobody cries for Matt Damon. Nobody.
In summary and in conclusion, Pizza and a Movie Day 2011 was a rousing success. And, just as a sign that I've come full circle, everyone went home at about 8:00. Good times, good times.
See you next year!
