this did not start off as a review of our screen time

Back in ye olden days of 2010 when I was 10elbees lighter and didn't have gray hair.
We went on a date today! Currently Blogless Stephanie watched the baby so we could go see the One Hundred Feet Journey. Unlike some movie dates in the past, we both understood everything that happened. Our movie viewing history has had some highs and lows.

When we saw a Jason Bourne movie a few years I was so lost I eventually started counting how many pieces of popcorn I ate to entertain myself. The movie didn't even have Jason Bourne in it. It was all about some dude named Aaron Cross so why they didn't name it the Aaron Cross Legacy is beyond me.
About to attend our first ball together.
Look at that face. Christopher could hardly contain his excitement!
The last James Bond movie came out a few years ago on Christopher's birthday. In preparation for it's debut we watched the previous JB movies. Again, the confusion was real. After the first one I had to read the wikipedia page to understand most of what was happening. Thanks to wikipedia, when we watched the last one I was bursting with pride that I knew what was about to happen before Christopher did. He didn't want to know so I had no one to share my joy with. The level of unrealistic things that go on in those movies are unbelievable. Listen. If you fall hundreds of feet off a moving train after being shot, you're dead. I don't care if you're Harrison Ford, you're still going to be dead. Not to mention the scene where he's at a fancy theater talking very loudly into his secret device and nobody shushes him. In what theater would this be acceptable behavior? Not to mention this:
Then there was the time when I was sick as a dog pregnant and we watched the Downton Abbey season finale. I LOVE Downton Abbey but couldn't keep myself awake for the whole episode. I was so upset with myself for falling asleep, with Christopher (how DARE he let me fall alseep) and with my life in general that I was still grumpy about 24 hours later. I was a true joy and delight to live with that week.

I'm not sure how a post intended to be about our romantic date turned into me rehashing movies I don't understand. I'll ponder it while I study wikipedia on the new James Bond movie coming out in 2015.

I'm glad y'all had fun! And that I got a crazy awesome title like "Currently Blogless Stephanie" that's better than some of my other titles as of late like "poopoo face mommy" :-)

Those freaking Jason Bourne movies! Why does those even exist? My husband loves them and we have to watch them when they are on TV. Let me tell you, they are on way too much! And they're loud! He watches them when I'm trying to sleep and they are way too loud!

You look stunning in that pretty dress! I want to go to a ball. Did you feel like a princess?

I loved The Kings Speech, but after watching it, I spent the rest of the night on the internet trying to learn more about the royal family. Like what is their last name? Of the Southern Isles? ;-)
