Dinner and a Movie

When a new movie comes to town we are usually first to see it on opening day the 4:00 or so showing. We don't like to fight the crowd. When we went to see this movie we sat on the very back row (more leg room) where we always sit. Now for my pet peeve I would like all the comments I can get on this, was I in the wrong. A young girl 16 or 17 was with her parents and she sat next to me. Needless to say I was very distracted through the whole entire movie. The last twenty minutes I started to count she sent 11 text messages. I kept looking over and a few times I went excuse me, I am watching the movie. After the movie was over it was a good thing it was still dark. I said to her next time you go to a movie it would be nice if you could not text during the movie it interrupts other people. I didn't know her mother would jump all over me saying it is ok to text message during the movie the theater does not care, " but I do and I paid to be here". What is our world coming to can we not go 2 hours without talking to our friends. I hope my girls read this if you ever do this, I will beat you up. It would not be child abuse just assault and battery.

Back to the Movie TAKEN it is so suspenseful the whole entire movie. It stars Liam Nesson and Maggie Grace. Maggie Grace plays the daughter and is kidnapped in a foreign country. Her Dad (Liam Nesson) makes it his life to find her. You are on the end of your seat through the entire movie. It does have a little sexual content and some drug use. It shows a great love between a father and his daughter. Would we go to these measures for our children? It is rated PG, be careful who you sit by.

Our son is married to a lovely German woman and the hubby is a little obsessed with the German Cultural. All he talks about is moving to Germany. My heels are dragging on the ground. I guess you could say I like my comfort zone that I am in right now. He has been pestering me to make German Pancakes. I gave in they were great and easy to make. I haven't eaten this many eggs at one time in years. You can not tell by the picture but the pancake is loaded with lemon glaze. They were yummy I am sure we will be making these again.

German Pancakes

1/2 cup butter
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
6 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt butter in oven in 13x9 inch pan until bubbling. Mix all ingredients together and pour into hot butter. Bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with jams, syrup, powdered sugar, fresh lemon juice, etc, for breakfast or with meats for dinner.

Lemon Glaze

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Mix together.

Oh Lynette! I would've been steaming mad. I probably would've left the theatre and talked to the manager. Cell phones are supposed to be "TURNED OFF". That would include texting.

As far as the texting kid, she was totallly in the wrong as was her Mom. It is absolutely rude!

The German pancakes are very similar to Dutch pancakes and that means they are delicious. Sorry about the movie distractions. I think we need a new, more vocal, Miss Manners.

I would have been really, really upset if I had sat next to someone texting through the movie. I can't believe the mother of that girl said that. I would have been mortified if my daughter was doing that and a stranger asked her to stop. Wow. I don't understand how people can be so rude!
