I saw The Dark Knight earlier today.
I must say, it was dope as hell. Marvel and D.C. comic books were part of my diet growing up. So as far as movies, it doesn't get much better than seeing a superhero movie well executed. Heath Ledger (R.I.P) was incredible. His performance was well worth all the current hoopla, so I hope he grabs a posthumous Academy Award. I'm not saying his performance makes me wanna see Brokeback Mountain, but it was superior.
Guess who I went to the movies with, though. My damn self! I left work early, so I decided to catch it before hitting the gym. I never understood why people are so insecure about catching a flick for self. You watch movies at the crib, don't you? Granted, short dialogue and group-talking to the screen is part of the movie-going experience. But sometimes, I either don't wanna wait on anybody or don't wanna be bothered.
In my Red Lobster days, I remember guests asking me to seat them away from crowds so nobody would see them by themselves. There's nothing wrong with eating by yourself. I must say, I don't get what I'd get from actually sitting in the dining room by myself. I'd rather take it to the crib and watch TV or something. But if that's what you wanna do, it's cool.
I think it's healthy to spend time alone every now and then. Anybody who has spent an extended of time with me, will tell you I get quiet every now and then. It's not that I'm pissed or anything, I guess shut down and require some quality me time every now and then. The one thing I wouldn't do by myself, is go to a club. I think it's something to do with friends, not alone.
What about you guys? Any of you hit the flicks solo sometimes? Any of you don't understand why some people do it? Any of you do things by yourselves, like go to clubs?
