Autobots...TRANSFORM!!

Today I shall remember well! For it is the day I watched the Transformers movie. It's been about three years since I'd last gone to the cinema if you can believe it! Well ever since the wife got pregnant and baby came along I never really could find an excuse good enough to leave the little one behind. :)

Anyway I had told wifey that I wanted to go see the movie because I'm a big robot and Transformer fan. So when one of my best pals turned up today we mulled about it over lunch and finally decided to go! I felt guilty about leaving the little one at home on a weekend when our time is supposed to be solely hers (but wife reminded me that theaters can get very loud)! So when the little one had her nap after lunch we quickly rushed to the nearest cinema. We grabbed the tickets for the earliest movie and even had to sit at different sections because only the front rows were available and we didn't want to sit so close! While waiting for the movie to start we bought the little one a couple of story books to soothe my feelings of guilt!

Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about the plot and be a spoiler. What I want to say is, boy was it a great movie! Humor and action, that's all! What I used to watch on TV (and sometimes still do) came to life on the big screen in a big way! I was happy to hear the voice of the original Optimus Prime (what a name) that I felt like a kid again! You have to be a Transformers fan to know what I'm talking about! I wished the movie didn't end and want to watch it again! Can't wait for the sequel that will be sure to follow! Autobots Transform!

Anyway after the movie we rushed home to pick up the little one (glad we didn't take her cause it was loud) and took her to A&W for our dinner and her supper, again to soothe my guilty feelings LOL

I must add that being eager to write this post, I covered my pillow with my blanket and quietly snuck out of my bedroom on all fours commando style (thinking of a similar tale a good friend once told me) as my wife put the little one to sleep. I wanted to burst out laughing but was afraid I might wake the little one up as she was almost out when I did my crawl of shame! LOL

Now if I could only have transformed! toot toot teet teet tooot toot toot :)

Hi,
I totally understand what you mentioned about sneaking out to catch a movie while leaving the lil behind. I haven't catch a movie at the theatre for nearly 2 yrs after having my elder. Finally get a chance to catch a show while leaving him to my mother in law. Even so, feeling so bad that through out the show was thinking about him & immediately rush home after that....haha ;)
I can see that you are a doting daddy & really loving one :)

I watched Transformer last week too... now got a maid to help me out with my 2 boys so I can go out!
I simply love it. Awesome.

Btw, heard that the show will run to episode 5.... looks like you will have to feel "guilty to your bb gal" 4 more times.... hahaha ;)

Janice, It's so nice to know that there are others out there in the same situation! LOL
I feel terrible about leaving her with the maid to go out and have fun. If it was for groceries or something then it's okay to leave her because it's not fun although I do take her sometiems to teach her things and stuff! :)
Four More episodes! Yikes! Hopefully she'll be old enough to go with us by the time the next movie is out! :)
have a great Monday!

Hi Adrian, I've yet to watch the movie, supposed to go this afternoon but didn't happen. Can imagine you feeling guilty abt leaving the lil' one behind and making up for it by going to A&W is just too cute! :)

Adrian said...

Hi Marzie, I hope you get to catch the movie soon. It's really great! :)

The movie was great, but it dragged in some parts especially when it was about the family. They just kept arguing and arguing!
