Okay, I should start this with a disclaimer. I don't get to the movies much.

Life is pretty full. Usually too full to spend a few hours at the movies. It's hard to multi-task in a dark theater. I watch the trailers sometimes online before the Academy Awards so I can at least follow along. But I don't think I had actually seen any of the nominees last year.

I have actually tried talking my girls into going to the movies with me on a rainy day to catch one of the kid-friendly animated blockbusters. No go. They think they are too loud or too scary. But that all changed when High School Musical 3 hit the big screen. They couldn't wait! So off we went to a matinee. All I can say is that the movie is very cute and 4 drinks and 2 popcorns cost more than the tickets!

And although it was very fun, I'm guessing I still haven't seen any of the possible award winners this year either.

As always, thanks for watching. For free.
