Thursday and Friday were the Squamish Mountain Biking trip, followed by Saturday in the USA for the wedding I had to photograph (all things considered, I am happy with the photos, but please don’t make me do another wedding again… so tiring…)
Sunday I woke up at 8:30 in the morning and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I got up and groggily spent time on the computer. Chris came by and we drove out to Steveston so I could get some photos struck off my list. We met up with Glen and Tara, and I wandered around town taking the required photos. I was groggy and exhausted the entire day. We wanted to go to Ikea, but it was too late by the time we were done with Steveston. We decided instead to go see a movie.
Our first thought was to go to a theatre in Richmond, since that’s where we were, but we decided instead to head to North Vancouver. Part-way there, we realized that we wouldn’t make it to the theatre in time to catch the Pirates, so we stopped downtown instead and went to the Paramount, paying $5.00 for parking. We walked up to the theatre and looked at the available showings – the earliest one not sold out was at 10:45 or something. No movie chance there, considering it’s a 2 hour and 40 minute film and I was already wiped out.
We hopped on the skytrain and headed out to Metrotown’s Silver city in the hopes to catch one of the many showings there. The train stopped suddenly just outside of main and sat there, so we waited for a while until it started moving again. By the time we made it to Metrotown, they had sold out one of our possible showings. The other one said “FEW” and as we stood in line it switched to “SOLD OUT”. No Metrotown movie for us.
We got back on the Skytrain and went back downtown to be near our parked cars. We ended up never seeing a movie at all, instead sitting and having coffee then some dinner.
I swear this happens more often than not when we try to see a movie. I haven’t seen the Da Vinci Code or X3 either. We should probably plan better to see movies, but we just don’t like scheduling that way. Ah well. Have to see it later.
