A night at the drive-in

Posted By on Apr 27, 2011 | 5 comments

I went to the drive-in with a school friend of mine last night and it was awesome! I haven’t been to the drive-in in FOREVER so I was so excited to go when Jordan smsed me about it. It was supposed to have been a whole bunch of us school pals going but in the end it was just Jordi and I. And I was fine with that.

She organised the chairs and flasks of tea. And I organised the blankets and nibbles (biltong and fresh biscuits). We got the chance to chat and catch up and relax. And it was awesome!

We sat outside for the first movie which was wonderful. Until the wind picked up. Luckily the weather was on our side though as just as the first movie was finishing, it began to rain. So we hotfooted it into the car to get warmed up and snuggled in for the second movie.

The first movie was Rio and it was too cute. If you haven’t seen it, you should! In a brief synopsis, it’s about a male Blue Macaw (“Blue”) who has been reared in captivity, and who is the last male of his species. He is taken to Brazil to mate with a female Blue Macaw (“Jewel”) who is the last female. They are left alone together overnight in a huge aviary but then they get snatched! And the movie is basically about their adventure in getting back to safety and having to deal with Blue’s incapability of flying.

The second movie was Hall Pass. It too was a movie I enjoyed and is basically about two husbands that get a week off from their marriage. I won’t go into too much detail here as I don’t want to spoil the movie for anyone but it’s a great movie for comedy and romance lovers alike!

And now a cute pic of Jordi and I!

After going last night, I’ve been thinking that it would be an awesome idea for a tweetup! We all meet someplace, pile into a few cars (to save money, ya know!), bring blankets and chairs and drinks and nibbles and enjoy a relaxed night out. Only problem will be in deciding when to go because there isn’t a guide to say what movies are going to be on when… What do you think? Good idea? Or bad?

  3. That sounds like an awesome idea. I know they do movies at Woodlands. This is the perfect night out for a single mom, I can go to the movies and my kid can sleep in the car. 🙂
