The topic: About those advanced screening movies

----------------------------------------------

We went to one where Brian had to take our cellphones and put them back in the car. Or else we could have put them in bags and put our information on them and picked them up after the movie. They checked us going into the theater. 

Well, now we just leave them in the car, don't even bring them in with us. But what about the time? Sometimes I have to "powder my nose" as my father used to say and if it's close to the end of the film, I can wait. But how do I know how long until the end of the film? Of if it's a movie like Her and I can't wait for it to be over and wonder how much longer I'll have to suffer through this drivel?

I used to have watches that had dials that lit up. One of them quit working (even after a new battery). I don't know where the other one is. I have tons of watches, that all need batteries, but in the dark, I need light to see them.  So, I did a search on Amazon and found a few. Some were fancy light up watches, glitzy blingy light up watches. Not what I was looking for. Most were digital. Nope, not what I want. I want analog.

And I found one. An Armitron at a very fair price. It got here yesterday, it fits, the numbers are readable (don't need glasses to see them) and I'm happy with it. It will be my "movie watch" and I shall only take it to movies. I pulled the stem out so the battery won't wear down, I'll set it before we leave. 

Yay!
