That's a Wrap!
Ben and I went to his work party this weekend. It's called a "Wrap Party" where they celebrate the completion of their film. It was a formal event held at the Masonic Temple in San Francisco. Ben wore a comfy Sunday suit, while I squeezed in one of two formals I own. The last time I wore it, was 4 or 5 years ago before I had any babies and I was 15 lbs. lighter. The other formal dress I own, I call it my "fat dress", which is self explanatory. I was not about to wear the "fat dress" because I have been running like a maniac (20 miles last week) and I WAS GOING TO FIT IN IT!
We arrived at the place and were ushered into a giant theatre, but not before we received some yummy movie snacks like popcorn, vegetables, and a sucker all vacuumed packed in a foil, space-looking bag. Pix-Toons sang funny songs to us to the tune of Star Wars followed by speeches from the producers and director of WALL-E. I felt like I was at the Oscars and someone was giving their acceptance speech. I was about to fall asleep when the director busted out with song and rocked out with the band singing a "Thank you" to the WALL-E crew. Now that's entertainment.
WALL-E was an amazing movie. Tears were shed and they weren't mine, shouts were heard, and not one person got up from their seat when the movie ended. Everyone waited for the credits to come and again, shouts and clapping. It was awesome and I couldn't help but think, next year, it will be Ben's and the "UP" crews time to shine.
It was a huge celebration complete with endless food, music and dancing. We also got our pictures taken with the stars of the movie. I made out with WALL-E while Ben watched. I just had to plant one on him. He was so cute in the movie. I gave him my number, but I don't know if he will call. Don't tell Ben, he's the jealous type.
We brought the kids home some blow up aliens that they had sitting in the seats of the auditorium later in the evening. Mia and CJ love them. Mia is actually watching a movie with her "elien" while holding it's hand. CJ sleeps with hers even though he is almost as big as her. Xander just beats the tar out of his.
FUNNY THOUGHTS by our KIDS
Mia-In primary they asked the kids,"What do your parents do for you?" The kids replied with answers like, they feed us, they take care of us etc. Mia raises her hand and says, "My Dad plays video games". They reply, "Oh,your Dad plays video games with you." Mia says, "No, he plays by himself."
In Ben's defense. . .
CJ-"I feel weird when I ask Xander if he is having fun playing with his balls. It just doesn't sound right."
Xander-When asked if he was a Republican or Democrat, Xander said he was a "Democrat", loud and clear. Now we have 2 Democrats in the family!
