After The Gift abruptly ended I immediately started reviewing my life and thinking if there was anyone I had been mean to in high school. Then, I began quizzing Kyle if there were any creepy people from the past who may have a grudge against him. Then we laughed because--we went to the teeniest tiny school where everyone was basically friends! We're totally safe. ; D
We ventured to Times Square to watch it because literally zero theaters were playing this movie, and it was at first a horrible decision because we arrived at the movie 45 minutes early, and not wanting to venture into Dante's Inferno that is Times Square, we sat in our seats waiting for the movie to start, finishing our popcorn and soda before the movie even began. Bummer. Our interests were piqued to see this movie because A) all of the other movies out looked so boring, and B) I actually saw Rebecca Hall on the streets in the West Village. She was just as smiley and nice as her character in the movie too, probably thinking no one would recognize her because she thinks she's not that famous, but I did and I can say she has big dimples when she smiles. Now that I'm the creeper-stalker here, I think overall the movie was pretty good, and had an interesting twist at the end.
The next day the "August heat wave" continued, and while our apartment swelled up with a blanket of warm thickness and our fruit ripened quicker than normal, I pulled out our new blender and whipped up the most refreshing + cold afternoon refresher. It was extremely satisfying, cold, lightly sweetened, and contained summer's best fruit for beating the heat (watermelon).
